1 day was followed' by the achedul-
ing of a conference for tomorrow
'between the President and Sena-
tors Smith (D., S. C), and Bank
head (D., Ala.), to go over the sit
uation. Smith, chairman of the Senate
Agriculture Committee, said in a
statement that he had several pro-,
posals in mind to prevent another
price slide, among them the im
pounding of 5,500,000 bales of cot-
! ton in which the government holds '
'an equity, until the price rises.
Concern was expressed in Con
gressional circles over the price
descent but the feeling apparently
was not shared by the Department
of Agriculture officials.
Senator Smith said be felt the
J , . T
1 ment that it would retire $675,-

Others, Including Senator Bank-
.head, held that the dechne; was due
i .. .. .
it resulted from rumors that on
government loans would be made
on the 1935 crop. Senator Thomas
(D., Okla.), expressed the belief
that competition from "cheap mo
ney" counties caused the break.
AAA officials said privately that
th'e drop was primarily due to a
weak technical position among
speculators and that farmers
would not be affected, since they
have little cotton now on hand.
They let it be known, however.
that the Commodity Credit Corpo
ration would probably extend the
present maturity date on 12 cent
cotton loans, July 31, 1935, for
several months and that it was
possible another loan would be
made next Fall on the crop now
Thomas "cheap money ' assert
ion brought- forward the suggest
ion heard from time to time dur
ing the past year that the United
States subsidize exports of cotton
in the same way that it handled
surplus wheat from the Pacific
Northwest in 1934.
Would Impound Cotton
Smith declared he hoped to have
a plan perfected this week "for the
impounding of at least the 5,500,
000 bales that the government has
an equity in
and prohibit any
hedging against it or any sale of
a single bale of it previous to
December 1, 1936, with a provi
sion of still further extending its
impounding until the price and
the export trade justify its sale.
These are very definite object-
