Whitten (D-Miss) has renewed his demand that the Agriculture Department dispose of surplus U. S. cotfon on the world market at competitive prices. He called on Secretary of Agriculture Benson to announce at the earliest possible date there will be a change in policy and American cotton will be offered at truly competi- "that there tive prices." He called on Secretary of Agrl-, the culture Benson to announce at the earliest possible date "that there will be a change in policy and American 1 cotton will be offered at truly competitive prices." This action, Whitten said in a letter, would be of great benefit "in retarding further expansion (of cotton production) in foreign countries. Whitten said he had noted Benson's recent statement to a Senate committee that there will be no change in exising policies prior to July 31. He said he differed with Benson on this decision but would accept It. However, he urged early announcement of a change in policy. No Objections The Mississippian says 1 he believes Benson is aware that foreign cotton production is expanding as United States acreage is cut. Likewise, he said, the State Department had said it has no objection to the sale of cotton in world trade at competitive prices. "I hope I am right, when I read these statements, in becoming convinced that you and the department officials recognize that a change in policy should be made; and yon now have only to make the determination as to when," he goin' fishin'? stop in at Western Auto first! select from Reve/ofioft South Bend Sfiotceipeort Airex Wright A McGill ond other famous brands!

Gosnell — Hughes Gin. Farm Frogresi E. M. REGENOLD, Armorel farmer and banker, was carrying on the Inrgest land leveling operation this week that I ever expect to see in this county. Five of the largest 14 or 15 yard dirt movers plus two large caterpillars were roaring over one field, shaping It to grade for irrigation. EARL W1LDY, Leachville,. was also shaping some of his land to grade this week. Ear! was eliminating "pot holes'* nt the same time he was -preparing the land for irrigation. JIM WHITE, manager of Clear Lake Farms, has developed the finest drainage system you ever saw. You might call his system, wide W ditches. They were made by his farm patrol. The dirt was pulled to the center from the two shallow ditches, yet every foot of the whole system is easily crossed, planted and cultivated. Does IV work? Well, he has 500 or mor-j acres of cotton planted. More of hip cotton was up Wednesday than I have seen in all the rest of the countyl W. G. "BILL" BROWN and son MARVIN of Leachville have the best looking lot of hogs I have seen in the county; 40 head of uniform, thrifty 190 to 200 pounders, about ready to go. They are Poland China, Duroc crosses, being fed a balanced ra lion of corn and protein supplement of course. And they have five Poland China sows farrowing more of these beautiful crosses under lights righl told Benson. It would be,unjustified, he said, to ask the American farmer to agree to reduced price support in order to get the department to sell the cotton in world trade. "The price support level is to offset high American cost, and to help assure American farmers a fair share of the national income." Whitten said. "To demand that supports be reduced, particularly where department officials now admit the bad effects of not .^cllint: stocks on hand at truly competitive prices, is wholly untenable and should not be permitted," He Said that if there were a reduction in price supports without other controls "there would be an increase in U. S. cotton pro- • duction ar. farmers would seek to offset their monetary loss." Applicant. Subscribed and sw-orn to before me this 28th dny of April, 1955. . ELBERT S. JOHNSON, Notary Public.

A substantial Increase Is reported In the North Central Slates, the principal soybean producing area. In general, the Increase is In ihose areas that had good yields last year. At the time farmers reported their intentions to planl, the 18 cent per bushel drop in the support price for the 1955 crop had not yet been announced. This may cause some revision In growers' intentions. Bow-Legged Men M. J, KOEHI..ER and I are going to visit the Wlnrock Farm today.
