The Georgia commissioner added Hint senators, congressmen and commissioners of agriculture from all cotton growing states hnd 'been asked to 'attend." Linder said also that Thomus had agreed to summon represen- tatives from the departments of agriculture nnd stale before the senate committee to "explain why information vital to cotton has been withekl.' OPA Restoration Costs Farmers Hesl.oral.iori of OPA, said Lin- der, has cost Ihe cotton farmer to date. Since con- I gross passed the new law, he ex- plained, the price of cotton has dropped the legal maximum of .100 points on the cotton exchange each c'lny. This, he continued, means'" that the price per bale has dropped He added that, effective to- day the maximum fluctuation under the law becomes '200 points. This year's cotton crop is esti- mated at approximately bales.

The board's first big assign- ment is to decide by Au'gusl "20 whether meals, dairy products, grains, cotton seed, soybeans and hundreds of. products made from them should be placed back un- der price controls at that time. If it makes no decision, ceilings automatically will be restored. Under terms of the OPA revi- val act, the board must hold pub- lice hearings before it makes any ruling on thcas commodities.

Unity Proposal WASHINGTON. July state department announ- ced today Britain has accepted "in principle" this government's proposal to unify occupation zones in Germany.

Despite this hope, the expecta- tion among diplomats here is that the United States and Britain at once will work out details for unifying Ilieir own zones econ- omically, that Fr.ince probably will join promptly und thai Rus'- sia will refuse lo cooperate. The announcement which may mark n step in the hardening of the great power split in Germany came as Secret a r y of State Byrnes met with Prime Minis- ter Attlee and Foreign Minister Molotov and Bidault in the first day of the Paris peace confer- ence. The state department announ- cement said: "The deportment of stale has been informed that the British government has accepted in prin- ciple the offer of Secretary Byrn- es to join the United States of occupation in Germany with any other for the purpose of treating the so joined as an economic unit. "The department welcomes the announcement as a first step to- ward easing the heavy financial burden resting on the two occu- pying powers and relieving the distress which has resulted from Germany's being divided into four relatively watertight econo- mic compartments. "The department hopes that Ihe other occupying powers will j find it possible to give an equal- 1 ly favorable response to Secre- tary Byrnes' offer. Jn the judg- ment of this government the greatest general advantage would accrue from prompt measures to achieve the economic unity of Germany as prescribed by' the Potsdam agreement."
