COTTON TO BRING
10 CENTS POUND
Plans For Loans To
Set Minimum Price
Washington, Sept. 22. The
Roosevelt administration today fash
ioned a powerful lever by which it
hoped to raise farm prices through
a virtual guarantee that cotton still
on the farm would bring 10 cents
-—or'more —per pound.
Through Reconstruction corpora
tion funds, the farmers who still
hold their cotton will be loaned 10
cents a pound, if necessary, the plan
being a companion piece of the
1934-35 cotton control program
which was announced today by
The secretary said he understood
the loans would be limited to thos?
farmers wljp. agyceed' to join in the
—etiTfip&lgn to reduce cotton acreage
in the south next year to 25,000,000
Oscar Johnson, finance adminis
trator of the farm administration,
said loans of 10 cents a pound would
be made, in all probability, on all
cotton of the 1933 crop held by the
farmer—should he desire it.
The 10 cents, Johnson said would
by farm price and not exchange
prices which are 40 points or more
higher than the price to the aver
age grower. He said some adjust
ment would be made to take care of
freight rates etc., but these would
be worked out later. Prices on
the New York exchange are around
9 cents for middling cotton at
