today, in discussing production cost

The -figures show that the average

In arriving at this cost the depart

laven't fIgured In the cost of picking
LIp squares, extra cultivation and
poisoning. When this adidtional cost
is added, say's -Senator Smith, the to
al average cost -will amount to 24 to
15,cents a pound. This, bear in mind,
based on tile production or as mullch
as 200 pounds to the acre.

"The table as prepared by the de

pound of cotton in 1922 at 22 cents,'
laid the Senator. "So it awpears, ac
lording to tile official report or the
lepartment, that even where 20(
pounds of lint to tile acre is made, It
cost 22 cents a pound, and I think my
abservations have been reasonably ac
