Washington, April 9.--Eugene Mey
or, Jr., managing director of the war
finance corporation, holds that it
Southern bankers cocperate with the
government in putting into effect the
cotton export plan which ho devised,
it will be possible to put 1,000,000 bales
In Europe.
The plan is very simply. The gov
ernment undertakes -to lend money to
banks, in approved cases, w-hen the
banks .will underwrite the transpor
tation of cotton to foreign nations.
While the details are not known, it
is surmised that the government will
give the banks long time in which to
make repayment to the government,
so that the banks can give inipoverish
ed European countries an opportunity
to pay. In tho meantime, the farmer
will have credit at the banks.
One loan, as already relorted,
amounting to $100,000, has -been ap
proved. The scheme is not approved
in its entirety by all the Southern
bankers recently in conference with
the war flnance corporation in Wash
ington. But the majority, it is under
stood, looked with favor on the gov
einment's willingness to divide any
risk with them for the benefit of the
In this connection, it is the opinion
of certain financiers of the W. P. G.
H larding type that the scheme if gen
erally sipon sored by bankers .would not
only materily y aid the farmtwrs but

plight of the Soith was not and could
not be sectional, but natiohal; that
when the South's cotton was a drug
on the market, the South colid not
Lrade with other sections.
And Mr. Harding informed the
bankers that loans, on the basis of
present prices, were safer than on
the basis of high and necesarily fic
.itious prices, and he urged them to
nvest in European securities, and
,heck against them in advancing
noney to the producers.
At the same time, the bankers o
he South are hard hit. They are car
-ying all the cotton paper. And half
,he cotton produced is unsold. Robert
P. Maddox, of Atlanta, informed Mr.
deyers that the bankers were ca4rry
ng the load -with difficulty, and that
-olief was necessary because of the
lrtainty that if they did carry the
present crop, they could ikot carry the
While there was no disposition on -
he ipart of any banker to use force,

lebtedness of the farmers, and Gov
wrnor Harding spoke directly against
mich policy, the idea was prevalent
hat the farmer, 'by some personal
neans, should be made to see the folly
