at Poterjuch, near Stretten. The
dead are the plane’s crew of three
and its eight passengers, all Ger
mans.
One of the main purposes of my
field trip is to find out what the av-
I erage Southerner thinks “off the rec
j ord” of the cotton control program.
First andm ost important, of course,
is the fact that cotton is selling a
round thirteen cents a pound against
eleven a year ago. After five and six
cent cotton in 1931 and 1932 and the
miserable failure of private crop con
trol, naturally growers are ninety per
cent behind continuation of the Bank
head Act. Those who oppose thep ro
gram are mostly big growers, so what
the vote might be on an acreage
basis, I do not know. The brokers,

AUTO MAKERS HOPE
TO DEFER STRIKES
i
jHuge Production Will Be
Over by April 1, Goal of
Manufacturers
By LESLIE £ICH£L
Central Press Staff Writer
New York, Feb. I.—Auto manufac
turers are very much interested in
averting strikes in the auto and sub
sidiary industries. (But they will hold
out to the last against the American
Federation of Labor).
The manufacturers are interested
for a potent reason. If they can have
! uninterrupted production from now
| till April 1, the auto output for the
first quarter of 1935 may total as high
as 1,100.000 units. There were only
. 150,000 units in the like period last
' year.
Production of 1,100.000 units would
exceed the first quarter production of
any year since 1930—when the total
; was approximately that.
A glass strike already has lowered
glass supplies.
Production is not expected to con
tinue at such a high rate all year.
The present spurt is to stock dealers

I resentative J. Y. Sanders. Jr., said
today that the troubles there fore
shadow “a conflict that will soon be

In his maiden speech m Congress,

“Shall we discard democracy and
set up a government by dictatorship?”
Democratic institutions and the or
derly processes of Democratic gov

i Louisiana, he asserted.
“The American ideal of a demo
cratic government, with all power
lodged in the people, with each com
munity electing its own officials, is
being displaced by this Asiatic con
ception of government of an all-pow
erful executive, who rules the whole
