Speakers before a hearing held in Memphis yesterday by a subdivision of the House Agriculture C rs. Committee warned cotton growers they must cut the cost of production if they expect to meet the competition of rival fabrics. • For the first lime we realize how far rayon has cut into cotton's once-dc.minant market position. We are told that rayon production now has reached one- fourth of the cotton crop. This year there will bo produced 870 million pounds of rayon, equivalent io 2 million net weight bales of collo.n. Many mills lhat have been processing cotton continuously all their history now have abandoned it for rayon, the Memphis meeting was told. This, if unchecked, might well become a death march for the South's great staple — which has already lost to rayon , much of the cord business in the 1' manufacture of automobile tires. One of the obvious solutions for a cheaper production method in cotton is to mechanize the fnrm. The figures on rayon have an inescapable meaning for every man v.'ho grows cotton. So, to reach that figure gradually, the present number will be cut to 1,310,000 by December 31. That will be done mainly by getting rid of the last of the men drafted in 1945. In addition the air forces must discharge 8,700 wartime officers in addition io ihose leaving the service voluntarily. And men in all branches who have shown "ineptitude for military servce" also are to be given their walking pap- Anouncing the discharge speedup last night, the Army said frankly it was being ordered to keep within the payroll set by congress. Maj. Gen. Willnrd S. Paul, War Department personnel director, added at a news conference the army had been kept over-strength for several months because of draft-volunteer uncertainties. And those over-strength men ate into money set aside for payrolls. However, the number of enlisted volunteers last week stood at 1,320,951. That number plus the 50,000 otficcrs congress lias authorized for the postwar army would Children to Have Day at State Livestock Show Little Hock, Oct. 18 —(/P)— A big day was in store for Arkansas' youngsters at ,tho Slate Livestock Show today—Children's Day.

WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent Washington, Oct. 18 —(UP) — Polls .and the reports of roving newspaper reporters forecast Republican congressional gains today as the general election campaign approached the final fortnight. Republican partisans claim the House of Representatives for sure and say they have a chance to win control of the Senate. Democratic partisans insist they will maintain control of both Houses of congress. The political alignment as of to- ay is as follows: Senate (56 Democrats; 38 Republicans; 1 Progressive; 1 Va- ancy. House: 237 Democrats; 192 Republicans; 1 Progressive; 1 American Labor; 4 Vacant. The Senate vacancy was created by tne resignation of Warren R. Austin, Vermont Republican, who las been named United States Representative to the United Na- .ions .The Progressive seat was held by'Son. Robert M. LaFollette of Wisconsin, who sought nomination this year as a Republican and was defeated in the primaries. A net gain of 11 seats would give the Kepublicans 4y and majority control of the Senate. A net gain of 26 seats would give the GOP 218 and majority control of the House. Majority parties almost always .ose some seats in the minority in off-year elections. Under the spec- .acular leadership of the late Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Democrats reversed that in 1934 by increasing their House membership from 33 to 322, and they also polls.

In 1936, a federal investigation resulted in the trial of 259 persons, mostly ward workers, and the conviction of scores of them.

Informed quarters said an Australian agreement on New Guinea had been completed and was either on its way to the U. N. secretary-general or actually in his office. While submission of British agreements on Tanganyika territory, the Cameroons and Togoland was not so imminent, British circles said the agreements were virtually completed and definitely would be turned in during the assembly session.

D., Oct. 18 —(UP) — On orders from the governor's office the game warden looked the other way today, while military chiefs of the United Nations hunted pheasant—without a hunting license. The hunt began shortly after dawn. Worried townsfolk had telephoned the state capilol at the last minute, it wag learned, to gain special permission for the expedition. They pointed out that a state law prohibits aliens from obtaining licenses and said that the state's "honor" was at stake. State officials already had indicated they would wink at the law, but the north woods folk wanted official assurance that the distinguished guests would be spared embarrassment. Armed with guns loaned by the townspeople, the Russian, American, British, French and Chinese military chiefs sought their prey in the hilly brush- land near the Missouri river south of Minot.

"We will open every session 1 of- the House with a prayer : and close it with a probe," Brown told the Washington, Oct. JBW— The administration's program for ridding the American economy of federal restraints clicked into high gear today, with November 1 set as tho deadline for scrapping a great majority of wartime price controls. A high official said that ioods. services and many commodities , will be taken out from under ceilings by then—two months or more earlier than had been planned before President Truman's meat decision. This official emphasized to a reporter that it will be "an orderly retreat" from controls and will not result in "riot 'or chaos." Furthermore, for the somewhat less immediate future, he added that price lids will remain on rents, automobiles, ouilding materials, refrigerators, furniture, basic clothing items and farm implements. Major developments on the fast-' moving decontrol front included: 1. Flour, bread and other bakery products figured in speculation as 1'recd of price ceilings. the next important food items to be The milling industry formallyre- ouested Secretary of Agriculture Uinlon P.

Budget-wise, that will soak up less than a tenth of the possible $380,000,000 saving to the go,vcn> ment in meat subsidies that were discontinued by the president's action in decontrolling meat prices this week. But congressmen's protests went into other aspects of the public works- spending cutback, and further yielding by the president was indicated by announcement of Budget Director James E. Webb that: 1. "Additional limited expenditures on new" flood control poj- cct "of urgent necessity" are to be provided for by presidential di- old- g'ospcl hymn, 'Let-'tlie Sunlight In.' The American people have a right to know how their money has been spent and how their government has been conducted. These things have not yet been completely exposed." Brown said Republican House investigators—assuming that the Republicans control the House—will open up a dozen or more investiga- itions, some on subjects already explored. Among the House inquires foreseen by Brown were: war spending; the international highway linking North and South America; the Canol pipeline project; the War Shipping Administra- ion; the War Assets Administration; Reconstruction Finance Corp rection after "approval on a proj- ect-by-projcct .basis by Reconver- sion Director John R.'

Treasury Report Shows Overdraft in Yell County Little Rock, Oct. 18 —(fl'i—-Coinp- ti oiler John J. Truompor filed with the Yell county court today a re- county treasurer's accounts, port of a special audit of the fharpl.v criticizing practices of Earl E. Ladd. The report said there was a not overdraft in school district ar- counls of $8,142.19 and that the accounts were "in such condition that it will take part of the 1947 receipts to take care of tho overdraft." "Tho report reflects that the county treasurer has paid and retired several warrants out of funds xxx which belonged to general accounts," the audit said.

M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) The relationship of the new Russian budget to tho international search for peace is more important than all of the official Soviet statements since V-E day.

It may mean a reduction of the Red Army forces which are .living off occupied countries in Europe and the easing by that mui-h of their struggle for economic rehabilitation. II may be a verification of the. widely-held opinion that Stalin puts the up-building of the Soviet Union at home ahead of ideological warfare, and that the Russians, in their postwar expansion abroad, have merely been making immediate hay out of world unscttlomcnl. The size of standing armies, of course, is not everything. The United States war effort, developed on a base of a liny military ostab- ishmcnt and a tremendous indus- .rial establishment, is a constant reminder of that. Diversion of Rus- ••ia's money and manpower :'rom Lhc military to the industrial field will not weaken, but rather increase, her utimate military strength. But in Europe the size of standing armies, and whether (hey are capable or incapable of quick blows in support of diplomatic policy, always has meant a grout deal in the matter of attitude. If, as the tremendously increased budget for scientific development indicates. Russia is plunging whole hog into the race for atomic power, she is doing no more than others. If atomic fuels for peacetime purposes cannot be produced without at the same time producing materials which can be made into atomic bombs, neither can great industrial establishments be built into which cannot be channeled war production. The Russians say frankly that the five-year plan is for Uic purpose of making the Soviet Union strong economically and -militarily. Thc result is all a matter of intent. The more Russia reduces her actual military establishment, the loss the world will question either her immediate QI- ultimate motives.
