C, Williamson, president of the American Cotton Co-Operative Association, told the house agriculture committee today rayon and other substitutes constituted a grave danger to the cotton industry. "These substitutes from a more serious threat than foreign production In our foreign markets," Williamson said. "And when we raise artificially the price of cotton, we're encouraging the substitutes." Ho sold rayon was replacing market* for about 3,500,000 bales of cotton and added that development of the Southern pine Industry was cutting cctton acreage appreciably. Williamson strongly endorsed the program approved by a conference of growers with Secretary Wallace here Jan. 16. It included approplratlon of between $400,000,000 and $500.000,000 annually for parity payments to cotton growers, reduction of the government's holdings of about 11,000,000 bales of loan cotton and transfers to the federal surplus commodities corporation of 1,500,000 bales from the loan holdings. Meanwhile, Chairman Jones CD- Texas) of the house agriculture committee said the cotton problem could be mot under existing legislation. Without referring by name 'to the recent plan of Senator Smith (D-SC) to reduce the government's loan holdings, Jones said In a statement: "Fortunately the present act provides for handling emergency situations, x x x We can and should compote in the markets or the world through orderly market- Ing in a competitive way. This can be done with much less ex-1 pense than some of the proposed \ plans would Involve. | "Let us distribute some of the cotton through relief channels. Then let us sell some of it, or thu products thereof, abroad, This can be done without disturbing thp domestic price. In fact, In the long run the domestic price will be helped by the reduction of the •amounts now in storage."

Einstein thinks he has discovered the clue to a long-sought single law that will explain the structure of the entire universe and all the mysteries of matter and radiation. Gravitation Is the missing link, Everything else, scientists have suspected, will become clear If someone can learn how gravitation originates. The mystery of the source of matter and of energy has seemed complete, all except fitting gravitation into the puzzle. Two years ago Einstein announced he had a tentative solution which he described as the idea that a particle of.solid matter was a "bridge between shells at space." However, that solution did not work well all matters. A year ago ' evidence In & book, t the known fields" that Is electricity, gravitation and magnetism may be "tho only reality." Everything else, including matter, would become combination of the •'fields." Married In Dallas The aoclety section of Sunday's Dallas News carried a picture of Miss Lee L.
