The Bankhead Bill There will he no suspension of the B;.nkhc:ui col Ion uinli'ol act, says Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, and anyone who will lake the trouble to give the matter a few minutes serious thought will agree with (he position he I.ikes- 'Jhe wisdom of I he HanUhead act, even as an emergency measure, is open to iuwslion. The danger it holds to the American collon industry if pursued as a long time policy is reasonably phiiii. But now is not Ihc time to nullify it or to modify it in any essential. Whatever harm this year's application of the law is capable of doing has already been done. -To suspend it at Ibis lime would bi; out-, rajjeously unfair to I he great majority of producers who have made a sincere ell'ort to'co-operate in the production control program and would destroy confidence for years to come" in any ell'orl (o help the cotton grower. The drouth has greatly simplified enforcement of the Bankliead law. Few fanners will produce morc.-tlian their tax (red allotments untiei 1 the measure. The only ones to benefit by its suspension would be the small minority who made no ellorl to cooperate in Hie voluntary reduction program. And thousands of growers, who cut Ihciv acreage in good faiili ivn.l have seen their prospective production further drastically reduced by unfavorable, weather conditions, would be penalized by lo.-s of the return which they may .aspect under the law from sale of lax free certificates in excess of their own requirements. The Bankhead law should stand for the remainder of the current crop year, but. in Ihe meantime intensive study should be given by federal agencies and fanners' orgaui/.alions to lliu probable refills of further maintenance of Ihc policy it involves. To what extent can tlic United States alford ID follow a program that obtains temporary enhancement of the value of cotton at the cost of continued and progressive stimulation of foreign production and sacrilico of American markets for cotton abroad'.' , Talk of the inability i.f fi)"eign countries to produce collon to lake the place of reduced American production is utter nonsense. They can't do it this year or next year- But al- ready artificial enhancement of the American price has accelerated the steady increase in the percentage of the world cotton crop produced abroad that has been going on for a number of years, and it is as certain as sunrisu that that increase will continue so long; as we make it more profitable for foreign countries to grow their own cotton, even under adverse conditions, than to buy from us. If we are to continue any measure, of production control in Ibis country it should al least he based u|K>n a careful determination of the price levcJ at which foreign |.V»ducfion will be' stimulated. If we are lo holii our place in world cotton markets we must keep the price of American collon below that level. If we cannot do tliat wi- might as well admit inability • to compete in cotton production.
