"Competition from synthetic fibers, foreign cotton and from other crops an<| Industries for our labor • will probably mean we will be scck- 1 Ing to produce our crop with less cost and less labor while keeping production up In future years," he concluded. ' Mr. McGce was pessimistic In viewing the 1,500,000-hale 1952 goal for Arkansas. "We know there were 30.000 fewer cotton farms In Arkansas in 1051 than in 1950. "Many people are turning to crops and I think the average farmer Is studying the situation nnd Will plant In th« most economic manner In keeping with his nnrtio- «l«r operation," he said." Final discussion of the morning session was to be on farm labor, This afternoon, the group, now In Its second week of louring the Arkansas cotton territory, went into the actual production phases of cotton.

FOREIGN AID (Continued from Page U ary services and other defense measures, are u-cll within our economic capacity." Despite Mr. Truman's appeal, administration officials expected H tough, prolonged fight over the amount, especially over that part which would he spent to old the economics of Allied nations In contrast lo the billions which would he spent to furnish them gum. tanks arid planes. In his message the President repeatedly emphasized an American role of leadership of the "free world." He declared, "We must show the world that we can meet any crisis, and that temporary frustration will not drive us to panicky aggression or to ignominous retreat." Even before the niessnge reached the Capitol powerful opposition was building up among the ln»-i»«kci-s. The congressional leaders who must quarterback the program predicted H will be .whittled down. The Prejidcjit said thnt for tho fiscal year-.beginning July i the total security programs he Is sponsoring total about 64 billion dollars. He snid the burden of this cost nnd what it means In cutbacks of civilian production "arc clearly within our economic capacity." The sum covers appropriations proposed for the U. S. armed torc.cs as well as help lo foreign countries, If there Is nny question nbnut the sb.e of the $ Mutual Security Program, he snid. "It Is not whether it is too large, hut whether It fs too small." He called it an j amount "which will bring returns In ' security no other policy could hope tojiroduce so economically." "r would not counsel Hie Con- pre,ss to spend one dollar more than. Is necessary to support our policy of peace." he snid. "Hut there Is no economy more false than that which Is summed up in the tragic phrase, Too little nnd (oo late.' Such a policy risks the loss of our Investment a.s well n.s our objective. "It would be foolish and dangerous to withhold a dolinr now nt the risk nf expending, not just many limes ns many dollars, but hllmnn lives as well, a few years later." The l'rc,<i<lent rejected what he rlescrHsort as (wo alternatives—"de- hbrrnle irar"—that Is a war launched by the dcmocricles to crush Rus- .ila—nnrl the "policy of retreat" to the Western Hemisphere.
