BLYTHBVrLLF, (ARK.) COURIER NEW» TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1050 Cotton Exporting Incentives Urged Notional Council Asks Ciwotton of Mammoth Revolving Loan Fund MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. !<!. Ml— Th* National Cotton Council's for•i^n trade committee today asked the Industry to back its proKrain to put more dollars—and coiUm—fn Xurope. Read Dunn, Jr., foreign trade director, told some 1.000 delegates to t*ie Council's 12th annual meeting here that the underlying cause of American surpluses was a shortage of dollars abroad. To fight this, tlie committee whipped up a 10-point program de- tlgned to help open trade between th« U.S. and Europe and start more dollars circulating. The most ambitious single objective was the formation of a (arm commodity revolving fund ot $1.600,000,000 (or loans to slimulnlc movement of surplus agriculture product?. Perhaps the top development In ttw opening session, of the three- day conference was the outline of a council plan to keep the farmer informed on the organization's political viewpoint. Ed Llpscomb, sales promotion dl' rector, said a representative of the Farm Bureau or the Grange could serve as information chairman In each of the more than 3.000 couil- Hes in the nation. " Through them would be distributed Information at the grassroots level aimed at discrediting claims of "supports of stale "socialism." Upscomb said there was "no reason to believe that we cannot overcome this Socialist propaganda that now goes unchallenged because of lack o( (actual information.'' The setup would be similar io ttiftt now operated by the Depart• ment of Agriculture's Production and Marketing Administration, which channels news and statements from Washington to the state PMA chairman, then ti> the county oommittees (or distribution lo the Mrmer.
