To the Editor of The State:
The debacle of artifijiai arastice di

country during the past 18 montl
has resulted in striking down th
prosperity of American agncuitui
and left the farmers of the natio
bowed under the burdens of stupei
dous debt, and unable to revive the
former activities in crop preparatior
and production. The losses of An
erican farmers and the deflated v;
lues of farm products through enfori
ed sales upon stagnant markets ai
estimated to be $12,000,000,000, (
equal to practically the entire coi
of the World war to this country. Tfc
losses forced upon the cotton giowei
of the Southern states during this pi
riod of time on the producction an
marketing of two cotton crops are e:
timated at $2,300,000,000. Thes
enormous losses are largely repn
sented in unliquidated obligations i
the form of notes held by local banl
ers, supply merchants, fertilizer con
pnaies and other business institutior
as frozen assets. These losses do nc
include the sacrificed sale of Libert
bonds, loans negotiated on life insu:
