He also looks upon to cut the cotton acreage the responsi- bility of- the grower and the states. At least two of those who partici- pated, in the cotton conference have had previous experience with export i financing. j Eugene Meyer, while director of the war finance corporation in 1921 ex- tended credits of mere than 816.000.- OOO to finance exports of the staple in 1921. President Hoover, then secre- tary of commerce, was keenly inter- ested- in tbe corporation's activities and followed them closely. In addition, credits in that year to finance wheat exports amounted to about SS.COO.GOo. Some of these loans were made to private export financing corporations, while others went to co-operatives. Tie war finance corporation funds came from the government but Its export financing operations might be paralleled In a measure by private commercial organizations if they granted the necessary credits. In, approving a loan to an export financing corporation in 1921. Meyer said "it might be wen for business men now to ask themselves the question whether the present low- er price levels do not warrant some- what greater confidence than exists at the present time." yo definite plan has yet grown out of the discussions at the White House and they are to be continued through meetings or correspondence.
