The grant, originally approved in a 1970 farm law to run from &ti thftxigh lWSi provider up t»flOmilltona year in Agricul* tote Departit^t payments to Inc., k private adver* and market promotion set up and partially supported by cotton growers. To Come Prim 'Savings' The original law, which would be extended intact by the pending Senate bill, specifically states that the motey given to Cotton, Inc., is to come from 4 'savings 19 realized because the govermhenA began limiting support subsidies lor big cotton growers tdr.fS5 .00a a year be* ginning kt'i071. FimBey noted in a statement recently that a study by the General Accounting Office found that the amount saved by the ceiling was only $2.2 million a year. In spite of this, the Agriculture Department paid out the full $10 million in 1971, another $10 million in 1972, and will soon act on Cotton's request for a third $10 million installment this year. Agriculture officials claimed "this was the intent of Congress based on an ambiguous statement in the conference report (On the 1970 farm hill)," Findley said. The Illinois Republican and other critics have challenged this interpretation of congressional intent as mistaken and improper, but have never been able to upset the controversial ruling. Findley, in a statement, fcaid that on the basis of the estimate that actual savings from the payment limitation are only about $2.2 million a year, it appears that Cotton, Inc., should get $6.6 million for the three years ending in 1973 but will actually collect $30 million, a "windfall" of $23.4 million. Also Has Defenders "If this not tragic were enough, consider the way in which.Cotton, Inc., is spending this windfall. From lavish quarters in Manhattan, this organization is purportedly trying to regain some of the markets that cotton has lost to synthetics. The president of Cotton, Inc. draws a salary of $100,000 a year and several personnel make over $40,000 with the approval of the Department of Agriculture. As the outpouring of public money goes on, domestic consumption of cotton dropped last year to its lowest level since 1948," Findley said. The payments to Cotton, Inc., also have defenders in Congress, however. The brief clause extending the program for five years without change was inserted in the omnibus farm bill by the Senate Agriculture Committee without open controversy. Cotton met last open lobbyists reportedly week at the Capitol to confer on steps designed to make sure the grant program stays tacked onto whatever farm legislation clears Congress this year.
