opportunities for service awaiting the
younger people in the field of church
work. Enthusiasm, he spoke of, as the
foundation for any successful under

than numbers was most lacking 'In

CAUSES MUCH TALK
Stevenson Takes Part in Congress Dis.
cussion. Cotton Seed Losses.
Washington, March 3.-One of the
inportant bills which has been under
discussion here for several (lays was
that enabling the president to carry
out the price guarantee made to pro
ducers of wheat and protect the Unit
ed States against undue enhancement
of its liabilities. South Carolinians will
read with interest the folloewing rc
marks made on this subject by Conl
gressman Stevenson of Sothl Carolina:

"The statement has beeni ma de
broadcast, an1d a great deal has been
made out of it, that nobody's price was
fixed except the wheat muan's price.
u'le mis-statement amounts to tihis,
that. nobody's price was fixed and
guaranteed except the wheat man's;
and I want to say to you that. there Is
a large class of farmers the price of
whose goods has 'been fixed but was
not guaranteed, and they are tied up
tight today and have lost over $100,
000,000. Take the matter of the cot
ton seed of the farmers of the South
a-bout 5,000,000 tons. It was selling at
$83 a ton. They came along and said
that they must fix the price of that to
prevent exorbitant. charges, and they
reduced the price to $69 a toin, imiak
ing a deduction at one lick from the
market -price of $70,000,000. They fixed
it at that and let it run along for a
while, until some of the middlemen and
some of the farmers had considerable
stocks of seed oil hani which they had
obtained at the price fixed by the gov
ernmiient, and then they rediied it an
other dollar a toll. 'T'lhey did not. guar
aitee that anybody could sell it. at
that. That took $5,00110000 more. Then
they took the linters and reduced the
price 3 cents a poind- -the linters thalt
were to he takeni by the government
for the manufacture of expflosives. 11.1
