however holds a differ ent view As he is also holding the money what anyone else thinks may not matter The agriculture department is not advertising its victory but in its own quiet way it is already ar ranging to pay an export subsidy of about a bale on new cotton and thus get rid of 3600000 now growing bales abroad when and as necessary Used Noodle Not Fists Mr Wallace did it with his noodle not his fists The president was determinedly against super budgetary appropriations and the had made no allowance for the cotton export subsidy Up to the last the state department was against the plan

for PWA treasury had acquiesced in the pro gram as an emergency measure but senators who heard Assistant State Secretary Francis Sayre on the telephone during the last two weeks do not understand that he ever acquiesced Mr Hull also had private telephonic fears that the congressional authorization was going beyond the temporary phose to which he originally ac quiesced Congressmen who talked with Treasurist Morgenthau know his opposition had not been ma terially relaxed and a majority of congress was certainly against Wallace because the house had specifically voted down his ex port subsidy But Mr Wallace conquered them all by simply getting Mayor LaGuardia of New York and Ed ward ONeal of the Farm Bureau Federation into a twin logrolling combine which changed enough and voted 38 to 38 against half that sum Doubled for Health Spending forces succeeded in ncreasing by the louse allocation of or the farm security administra tion boosted the national youth administration allotment by

long ago But he does not grow cotton and anyway Mr LaGuardia is too busy to fool around for one vote Mr LaGuardia is interested in the Washington money he can get out of WPA for New York City next year He happened to be lobbying here at the time Mr ONeal was looking for house votes The mayor wanted a maxi mum bulk amount for WPA re storation of the theater project no limit on money allowances for projects Messrs Wallace and ONeal did not meet Mr LaGuardias mind there will be no doubt a holler Irom LaGuardia that will be heard in Kansas For the New York mayor spent much time with the Tsmmany delegation and aft erward several Tammanyites im mediately switched on the farm bill to the position that Messrs Wallace and ONeal wanted them to take Earlier they had voted against the cotton subsidy After seeing LaGuardia they voted for it They gave it the necessary votes to put it over Now if Messrs Wallace ami ONea do not reciprocate by de livering enough farm bloc votes for Mr LaGuardias city relief maintenance you will certainly hear city hall New York broad casting No faith can be placed in men Senator Georges belief that the subsidy program had been wrecked is based on the fact tha in the rubbercotton barter agree ment with Britain the United States has agreed to give Britai the benefit of any cotton subsidy Mr Wallace grants to anyone else ICopjrirbl Klni Inc
