In addition, there were reports that the plane's wheels were not in landing position, but were refracted into thc fuselage If true. this would indicate that the pilot had changed his mind about landing.

HP) _ Mouse form leaders put It up to the Agriculture Department (oday to take the next step in eliminating dlssatisfaciion of ninny coltoi growers over proposed 1050 cottar acreage allotments. Much of this dissatisfaction centers on the fact that ns the nr.w law—first cotton control profrnir since 1912—works out in some counties, many growers lake extremely fmm .,, . oil! acreage cute, some as Wall as ,,, , i *' 70 and BO per cent bushels per acre. 70 and BO per cent.

A House cotton subcommittee headed by Rep. Pace (D-Ga) canvassed the situation at a day-Ion session yesterday with Agriculture Department officials and came up with n two-pronged attack on the problem. First,, It recommended that SRC- rclary of Agriculture Brannnn nsk farmers who will not utilize all oi their allotment acreage to release the unused portion to county committees and that he authorize the committees to reallocate this acre nge to other growers within the county. Asks Limit on Cuts Second, It recommended that Congress act early next month i put a limit on the amount of acreage cuts which individual farmers sure, to take. ' U,' This, subcommittee action cnine as individual members - expressed concern over the possibility that the nation's cotton producers might reject cotton marketing quotas In Thursday's referendum. On Thursday, the cotton farmers will vote on whether they wnnt cotton market quoins such as were approved In pre-war daya. However, if more than a third of the farmers voting reject, the proposal, then the government automatically will cut Its cotton price support program from 00 per cent of parity to 60 per cent. Chairman Cooley (D-NC) of the House Agriculture Committee sold tills probably would result In a cotton price drop of $50 a bale nnd put the country's economy into a tailspln." Hep.

Cooley said he thought Secretary lirannan "probably" would follow the subcommittee's recommendation on unused allocations.
