Less than 20 minutes after the committee met, Senator Smith, Demoorat, South Carolina, emerged smiling to announce that the emergency measure had been approved without a dissenting voice. Smith and other southern senators hoped to push It through to enactment at the present short session In time to apply to this year's crop, although realizing that the time Is short and the-chances are problematical. Smith said* that as a result of the favorable vote It was expected cotton would be taken out of the domestic allotment measure passed by the House and still In the hands of tha agriculture committee. After disposing of the Smith bill the members turned their attention to the allotment legislation. Before them was a vigorous pretest from President Edward A. O'Neal of the American Farm Bureau Federation, against th«.proposal under consideration by the committee for restricting the bill to wheat and cctton. Under the Smith, bill the government, through a cotton board created In the department of agriculture, would concentrate In a pool the approximately 3,600,000 bales of cotton controlled by the farm board or other government agencies. ocrat.

CHRYSLER hurls a challenge at **staii€fl-|»at"" values THE NEW CHRYSLERS hurl a challenge That's why the new Chryslers are T HE six products from tho farm, dairy products, hogs, cotton, wheat, tobacco, rice and peanuts, which at the present time are expected to como under the domestic allotment plan, make up approximately BO per cent of the cash Income, from farms, produced in the United States. While the domestic allotment plan provides for tho inclusion of pork, It does not provide that tho allotment plan shall operate on beef or mutton. Pork produces approximately 13 per cent of tho total cash income to farmers of the United Slates for agricultural commodities. The combined .c'ish income from farm products of beef and sheep is approximately equal to that of swine. It is argued that beef and mutton will fluctuate in price in sympathy with that of pork and therefore If tho price of pork Is Increased as anticipated under tho domestltt allotment plan it is felt by those fostering the plan that beef and sheep products will rise accordingly. It is Interesting to note that dairy products, hogs and cotton mako up approximately 10 per cent of the farmers' cash Income In the United States, while tobacco, vice and peanuts, included under the domestic allotment plan, bring a revenue of approximately only 5 per cent of the cash Income for agricultural products In the United States. The reason for including some of tho minor commodities does not at tho present time seem to be explainable. Benefits to Producer Many growers of Kern county products are asking the question, "Will this plan increase the price of the products that I hava to sell?" The sponsors of the program or plan state that tho grower will be benefited in several ways. The grower signing the voluntary domestic allotment contract would bo benefited by a. sum approximately equal to that of the tariff on the commodity he may be producing. Tho violation of this contract, however, provides that the pro- duceY would forfeit his cash bonus. Tho producer Is Interested also In the problem of establishing his quota. Tho quota would probably be based on tho average production over a period of years—probably u five-year period. If, during a given year, some producer had crop failure he would receive his part of tho cash bonus If he were participating in the plan and had fulfilled his part of the contract, therefore, In case of crop failure a man would be eligible to a certain percentage of the bonus. It Is also stated that the act would provide for another featuru that is worthy of attention of tho producer, who may deposit his contract with any bank or credit corporation as security for a loan not to.exceed !)0 per cent of the probable amount of the tariff benefit, accruing to him. Evidence of such a loan, accompanied by the producer's contract, la to be ell glblo to rediscount by federal reserve banks. It would be unlawful under the act for the producers to transfer their right to any tariff benefit In any other way. Objections to the Plan As tho plan neurs completion, and approaches tho time when !t '.v!!! probably bo enacted, objections continue to arise. Probably one of tho outstanding objections will be that which claims the price of tho finished product to the consumer will "be greatly Increased. It Is claimed that the burden of the excise tax us it Is sometimes called, would bo exceedingly heavy on those with low Incomes. It is also claimed that It will increase tho value of those farms whore the grower signs the domestic allotment plan and comes under tho provisions of the act, and will, ut the same time, reduce the value of the land upon which tho grower lives who fulls or refuses to sign the contract, provided under tho allotment act. Those favoring the plan answer thu criticisms' by stating that the sumo objections can bo raised to tariff or commodities produced in the United States on which the tariff is now uf- fectlve. Effect Upon the Consumer The consideration of this aspect of the subject, the sponsors of the plan I say, wo must approach it from the j DIPLOMATIC WAR LEADSTO CRISIS League of Nations and Japan Near Parting of Ways and Both Firm (Continued From Page One) tlon might be damaged by a boycott If anti-British fooling spread. 2.

The buying: power depends upon the successful operation of the Industry or business. All commerce Is simply the exchange of goods and services among tho various producing groups. If the price of cotton Is 13.G cents per pound Instead of 7 cents or about double, at present price the cost to the consumer should not Increase but little. For Instance, one dozen pairs of standard weight overalls weigh 15 pounds. It requires one and one-seventh pounds of cotton to make 1 pound of cloth, and at 7 cents a pound Increase In the price of cotton", tho Increased cost of cotton going into a pair of overalls would be less thnn 10 cents. The Increased cost of cotton in a work shirt weighing nine pounds to th« dozen would be approximately C cents. Wheat, that "staff of life," Is also interesting to trace to a loaf of bread. If tho price of wheat was CO cents per bushel and bread at 10 cents per loaf of bread there Is less than 1 cent of flour <ln the loaf. If the tariff Is 42 cents per bushel and the allotment raised tho price of wheat to 92 cents per bushel the bread should sell at not more than 1 cent more of 11 cents per loaf, according to the advocates of the plan. Prolonging Soil Efficiency Curtain groups who favor t,he allotment pTan have looked Into the future and feel that It will prolong the productivity of tho agricultural soils of the United States, as the plan provides that those administering the act can retase the producer the right to grow othei cash crops on tho land that Is made Idle In reducing the acreage and production of a crop. The act provides further that the administrators might require the grower to contract to put the otherwise idle land into such crops as pasture, other grass lands, summer fallow crops, for the Improvement of tha soil fertility or preventing erosion, or In such bther uses as to prevent the Increasing of the surplusses. As to tho future success of this proposed plan, one can only wait and observe the operation and then determine whether It Is a success or a failure.
