TEN BLYTI1EVILLE (ARK.)' COURIEU NEWS on Growers Hear Anderson #,; National Council Gets -.'Encouragement From • Agriculture Secretary •"(? , iGALVESTON, Tex., Jnn. 29. (OP) ;—The promise ot a return to cotton -trading <wlth Germany and Japan bjr private firms In this country was B)*de by Secretary of Agriculture •Clinton P. Anderson before tbe Jitnth annual National Cotton Council in Galveston yesterday. J "It is likely tliat in Germany tlie .cotton industry may be the first to be. returned to . a private trading status," Anderson said. t "Under current proposals, n com- •binaUon of private and public funds ^•rould be used to finance private ex- .ports, and textile would be sold in ^world markets to pay for tlio raw •Cotton and provide returns to the military government," he said. As a result of the government export program on'a barter basis )a restore operation in German and Japanese mills, cotton shipments during the current season will amount to about one-half the-prewar normal. Anderson said the program for 'Japan called for shipping 890,000 |bales In 12 months, or almost as .much as was shipped from the U. S. 'to Japan In 1939. • He sain the total shipped to the ,U. S. Occupation Zone in Germany • before Spring would be 220,000 bales. 'Anderson pointed out that our 1939 'shipments to Germany were less .than 19,000 bales. The average lor -the preceding five years was a little Jover 548,000 bales, he said. , "If other responsible countries 'hid worked as aggressively nnd as Jeffecti\ely to restore the copra In- jdustry in the Pacific areas, we might oiow sec hope for Quicker relief In •the world shortage of fats and oils," ^Anderson asserted. ' Anderson urged all-out support lor the United Nations groups which Tire seeking "to create a world al- Jnosphere to which commerce can Jjrrathe." " Government Cotton Sold , The agriculture secretary added Another bright note to the future «f American cotton when he told more than 600 delegates from 18 Cotton-producing states that the government had liquidated its cotton-holdings." - "At the time of the cotton conference at the end of 1944, government holdings and cotton under loan amounted to T.500,000 bales. Today the Commodity Credit Corporation 1 is s'old out of cotton." ^ Anderson revealed that some of the cotton'was disposed pi in export trade, but most of it fvas sold in this-country ."without breaking pri- ies." He said it was remerkable that the CCC had made money hi the liquidation process. z .JWe have supported the market by last Dec. 31 we had mnde (IpJOOO while we were doing it." •~ jiciculture secietary assured ' they need not on cotton's posl- Jicm tn industry by the various synthetic fibers. ;; He admitted thafftfjmtlietic fibers *ere versatlle,iW£ Bf said plant scientists could produce special cotton fibers to meet the varied needs. ^ Anderson said n government re- Seacch program to develop new uses and-markets for cotton had been authorized by Congress.

He also tolci the House Interstate Commerce Committee that tlic public often does not distinguish between accidents on U. S. scheduled air lines and those on non-scheduled U. S. air lines. Therefore, he said, the accident record of scheduled air lines looks worse than It actually is.
