Thai danger Is real; it is not a mytli; nor Is It a fantasy." Summing up his conclusions, he said that "Western Europe must become an economic whole." "Unless economic union can be achieved, existing trade barriers removed, currencies made stable and convertible In nil Western European countries, so as to permit a free flow of commerce and exchange of € >ds and services between those mtries. there Is no hope of last- recovery under the present ECA program, hov.-ever much longer it may be continued and regardless of the amount we arc able to or shall contribute." If those countries "wilt not by mutual cooperation carry their part of the load now." he said, "when we stop this spending, as we shall be compelled to do some day. any fruits of onr efforts thus far will wither on the vine and die." His report on Britain was n severe indictment of that country's government policies. Despite aid of more than S7.000.000.000 he said her economic situation has Improved little, if any.

Vaccaro KEY WEST, Fla., Dec. 15—{/Pi- President Truman said today that treasury and congressional staff experts are making studies to determine whether war-time excise taxes can be repealed. tn a surprise vacation news conference, the President declined to say whether he will ask new taxes of Congress. However, he said it was always his mm to balance the budget. Reminded that he. had told a news conference In Washington recently that he knew of no way to wipe out a deficit other than by raising taxes, he was asked if he still felt that way. He said the whole mater was under consideration by a treasury committee of experUs and by staff experts for the House Ways and Means Committee. He said they were working harmoniously Walking into the press room on the Navy's Bachelor Officers Quarters here, the President suddenly went into a press conference on which he gave no advance warning. Some or the reporters were tn their pajamas. o A Co"" 1 sl!Uc T crit by Secretary elimination of war-time excise taxes to aid business was called to his attention. Asked if he agreed with Sawyer's proposals, he said the question was under consideration by the experts. The matter will be covered In the budget message, he said. Budget Director Frank Pace said last week he saw no way to balance the lOol fiscal year budget without new taxes. jprano voice-s predonil- j edited by orchid; in their hair 'pre- .imor choir's Mho from ' See.

The principal speaker, a role usually reserved for the government's incumbent agriculture chief was Sen. Clinton p. Anderson (ft-' NM) former secretary of agriculture. Anderson told federation l dele- iatcs yesterday that farmers should 'speak for themselves" first or all 'by exercising their civic responsibility to lake an active part In public affairs and through their o*n farm organizations." As the federation went into the mal day of Its three-day conven- ion it was reported that more than lalf of the state farm bureaus were on record opposing the basic milosophy of the Brannan farm )lan. Several reasons were given, ^rominent among them was the 'car of excessive power over agriculture vested in a federal agency. Most of the bureaus expressed dis- ike for direct subsidies to farmers instead of fair market prices.

(IF) — Cotton Partners decide today whether they wnnt to go back to prewar production controls to prevent accumulation of an unmarketable surplus of their crop. Their decision — to be made by ballot In n 20-sUitc referendum — held possible . disturbing consequence for the nation's economy. Rejection of controls proposed by the Agriculture Department could set off a selling wave In the agricultural commodities futures markets. This could bring about price declines that would seriously affect farm buying power. I'ailnre li> approve contrtiTs wnultl nil Inil pull .1 vital prop from under the prfce of cotton. Crop control law directs that government price supports for cotton lie rut from flic current rate of 30 per cent of parily to SO per rent if growers turn clown controls. Cotton Is down tn the sup- perl level. Parity Is a legal standard foi measuring farm prices, designed to be fair equally to farmers and thos who buy his products. In other words, the 1050 crop would be supported at about 15 cents a pound compared with the 194!)-crop support of alwut 28 cents lint this reduction would be reflected Immediately in markets where cotton is sold for future delivery. Any sharp downturn In cotton could he expected to spread to other major commodities, parily because of the Implicallon that farm- crs as n whole arc not in favor ol production controls. Agriculture Department officials said they were fully aware "f lliesn ncDiiomic possibilities. Nevertheless, they expressed confidence Ihc necessary two-thirds of Ihc farmers voting will mark liallols In favor of controls. This confidence was held despite the fact that there have been widespread farmer complaints about th control program. Specifically, growers are voting on the proposition of whether they favor marketing quotas. Under quotas, growers would he free to sell only that cotton grown on acreages allotcd them. Sales from excess acres would be subject to a penalty tax of about 15 cents a pound 21.000,000 Acres Allocated The department has allotcd 21 000,000 acres for the 1950 crop or abont 23 per cent less than was Planted this year. Complaints have sprung up over division of the al- otment among individual growers Some complain they have been i.skcd to cut us much as 80 per cent Unaffected by the program are farmers who grow five acres nr less. They cannot be reduced under the aw. Tlie apportionment of the allotment Is made a formula in farm law. The department hopes the control program will hold next year's crop below 12000.000 bales. This year's crop was 16.034,000 bales. Officials estimated more than 1.750,000 persons were eligible to vote. The states in which cotton Is grown are Alabama. Ari/ona, Arkansas, California. Florida. Georgia. Illinois, Kansas. Kentucky. I/vulsl- ana Mississippi. Missouri, Nevada. New Mexico, North Carolina. Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. —Courier News Photo VOTES ON MARKETING QUOTA-County Judge Roland Green of Blythcvlllo casts his ballot in today's cotton marketing rcterendum at the polling place set up in tlie PMA office in tlie Court House.

Evert Kassnlnw. executive, secretary of the CIO full employment committee, made the statement in testimony prepared for hearings of tile Senate-House Economic Committee. He was called before a subcommittee which Is studying ways to attract investment capital to small businesses. Senator O'Mahoney (D-Wyol said a steel price increase would be "out of line" and would call for eresstonnl Inquiry. The Increase which they referred to was forecast by Benjamin Fnlr- less. president of Ihc U.S. Steel Corp., In Chicago yesterday. Fairless told a news conference that his company Is going to Increase some prices and decrease others In n revision to be announced Friday. Fairless blamed Ihc recent freight rate boost and the pension plan won by Philip Murray's CfO steelworkers for the increased cost which he said necessitated the price rise Senator O'Mnhoncy Is chairman of the Economic Committee, which probably would undertake any Investigation. He told a reporter that "I don't see how we can avoid II." "The profit records of the steel Industry indicate absolutely that an increase In the price of steel at this lime would be absolutely out of line." he added. "ft utterly overlooks the public Interest, because the steel Industry produces a basic commodity which affects the prices of every other commodity." N, O.
