(Following are excerpts from the
ipeech Congressman Harold Coolev
delivered Tuesday at a meeting of
tobacco warehousemen st Myrtle
There teems to be ne end to the
problems of the tobacco industry.
Problems affecting tobacco farmers,
tobacco warehousemen, the buying
companies and communities in which
tobacco is grown and sold an con
stantly arising.' Markets must be
opened and closed and regulated.
New marteta must be opened and
old markets mast be expanded.
Markets ranpt open sad close in the
different belts at Afferent times. Es
tablished markets must have an op
portunity to expand and there is a
constant demand for additional seta
of buyers. Many communities in
which markets once operated are
anxious for such markets to be re
established. Frequently there is great
contention between warehousemen
regarding the proper division of sell
ing time. As a result of these con
troversies, there is great likelihood
of a warehouse building boom which
may well result in an overexpanskm
of auction warehouse marketing
facilities and a necessary waste of
both money and material.
At present there is no committee,
commission, bureau or agency, either
public or private, which has
authority to deal with and to deter
mine the many problems which arise
in the tobacco industry. There is no

our nation at the present time is the
threat of economic isolation. During
the war a magnificent spirit of eo
operation prevailed among the allied
nations. Countless thousands died in
a commai! cause. Even though our
nation tried in every conceivable way
to be neutral j^nd to remain aloof
from the conflict, we found ourselves
Suddenly embroiled in the greatest
and the meat cruel conflict in the his
tory of the world. Twice ip, go* gene
ration the world has been bathed in
Mood. The groat question confront-!
ing the America^ people today Is
whether we shall continue world, co
operation in a common effort to re
build a devastated world and through
the gnat spirit of world cooperation
find the happy highlands of world,
peace or whether we shall fallow the
road of economic isolation Which will
lead to the lowlands of ruin and per
haps to another world-wide conflict
in which the last pages of the his
| tory -of civilization may be written.
Twice in our generation gallant
men have won great victories. The
fruits dtthe victories of World War
I were utterly lost because of the
selfishness of shortsighted men.
What of the fruits of the victories of!
World War II ? These we can ill af
! ford to lose.
The problems of the peace are in
magnitude comparable to the gnat,
[problems of war. The peace" and
prosperity at the world are Jttt jd
| dependent upon a proper solution of
the problems of peace as they were
upon the glorious victories of war. '
Economic isolation will destroy the
pdaco and prosperity of the world
Just as effectively aa atomic bomb
shells. At this moment, America kaa
no fear of atomic warfare, but think
ing men everywhere have a great
fear of economic warfare which
threatens the prosperity of our
nation and the peace of the world. .
In a comparatively abort period of
time, America has become the great
coat nation in the world. Never in all
history have so many nations looked
to America for world leadership. Em
pires are breaking apart and a world
in distress is crying out to America.
Our competenay is now being dial

ability to solve our own problems at

sufferings of humanity everywhere.
