1 his Is the judgment not only of
political opponents of the bill and
exporters, but of economists and in
ternational bankers.
Our merchandise exports rose in
the period of 1923-28 more than 25
I T cent, to a total of $5,000,000,-
000. During the first nine months
of this year there was a further in
c ease in the value of all exports
of 24 per cent. Now foreign nations
threaten to retaliate against our
trade if we enact the proposed pro
hibitive tariff against them.
Even if the domestic market and
its purchasing power is maintained
through the Hover conference pro
gram of keeping up wages, and
even if production is stimulated by
speeding up public and private con
struction projects, and even if
fixes are reduced, there remains
the question of retaining our for

very heart of our prosperity.
The President has stressed re
peatedly that foreign markets take
our 10 per cent industrial produc
tion surplus. The disposal of that
surplus is the margin between na
tional prosperity and national de
pression. More than 5,000,000
workers are benefited directly by
the export trade, and the entire
country profits from it indirectly.
Just at the moment of industrial
strain and stock deflation when this

also just has made agreements
with Canada to buy coal and steel
from her instead of from the United
States. This is significant because
Canada is our largest world cus

FIGHT SNOW AS

Six Millions to Be Spent
Clearing Highways.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Dec. 6.
Preliminary reports Indicate that
more than 160,000 miles of main
traveled highways in the thirty-six
states in the snow belt will be kept
open and free from snow during
the present winter, according to the
American Automobile Association.
Approximately $6,500,000 will be
expended by states and counties
for this extensive program, but it
will mean a saving of millions of
dollars and return great economic
benefits.
“The importance of keeping the
highways open during the winter
months can not be overestimated,”

says the national motoring body.
“Although the problem of snow re
moval gradually is being put on a
standardized basis, much remains
to be done. Highway builders,
however, in the main have learned
the economic value of uninterrupted
distribution of food, maintaining so
cial communications and keeping
I the schools in operation.”
