WASHINGTON NEWSLETTER: VERBAL HASSLE AT WHITE HOUSE
Rogers Predicts No Special
Session as Congress Leaves
On the morning of August 1st,
the President's office was the
scene of quite a gathering—one
that almost ended in a verbal
All of us Members who are
interested in cotton production
and manufacturing went to the
White House to request the Pres-
ident to do something about the
continuing loss of our foreign
cortón markets. The President
was standing behind his desk
flanked by his Secretary of Agri-
culture, Mr. Benson, and an As-
sistant Secretary, Mr. James Mc-
Connell. We Members of the
House and Mej-nbers of the Sen-
ate were gathered in a semi-
circle around the desk.
The problem was presented to
the President on the basis that
several countries had devalued
their own currency and were
thereby enabled to get some of
our cotton customers without in-
terfering with the world price.
There has been a running fight
between the Department of Agri-
culture and several Members of
Congress because Mr. Benson re-
fused to put any of our surpluses
on the world market. Many ar-
gue that this country cannot
dump surpluses on the world
market without breaking the
world price. However, the De-
partment of Agriculture recently
undertook to move some of the
surpluses into the world market.
The State Department vigor-
ously protested and the cotton
surplus problem was again at a
standstill. This is not the first
time the State Department has
interfered in efforts to dispose of
some of our surpluses. Some peo-
ple contend that the withholding
of r surplus cotton from the
market is like holding a
mbrella over that mar-
we continue to build
> and cut down acre-
.esident seemed to be
■ . interested in the problem
« presented and was making
some very appropriate remarks.
The general conversation had
been along the lines of protect-
ing our own foreign customers
and trying to gradually reduce
The meeting was about to close
when one Member of Congress
spoke up and told the President
that he did not agree with any-
thing that had been said about
putting part of our surpluses on
the world market. He contended

that all of the Senators and
Members of the House who were
supporting such a program were
wrong, including the former Sec-
retary of Agriculture, Senator
This looked like the beginning
of the verbal free-for-all, but the
President immediately observed
that the office was not a debate
forum and that he felt he had a
jretty good picture of the prob-
em. Everyone left quietly.
It is a tough problem and one
that is going to have to be set-
tled at White House level. Many
of the countries who are bene-
fitting from the firm world mar-
ket price are also receiving for-
eign aid from this country. This
means that they are getting both
direct and indirect foreign aid,
because the surplus cotton in
this country is withheld from the
world market and must be pur-
chased by Uncle Sam and held
in storage. This costs money and
brings criticism on the farmers
which is not justified.
Congress Finally Adjourned
The hectic final weeks of Con-
gress which had turned into the
hectic final days which had
turned into hectic final hours
turned into hectic final minutes.
At 11:36 p. m., August 2. Speaker
Sam Rayburn, on the motion of
the Honorable Charles Boyle,
Democrat of Illinois, declared the
House of Representatives of the
United States of America ad-
journed sine die.
The last few hours were a wait
and see process. What the Senate
would do with the several bills
that had been stamped essential
was not known. If they turned
down the conference reports, it
would mean another day and,
perhaps, another week. However,
agreements were finally reached
and the' business of the Session
As the Session closed the ru-
mor became wide spread that a
special session was in the very
near future. The President was
not pleased with the action of
the Congress on the road bill
nor was he pleased by the hous-
ing bill that passed.
The big issue, as I pointed out
before, was public housing. The
House did not want public hous-
ing. The President and the Sen-
ate were both for public hous-
ing. The compromise was in the
nature of an authority to con-
struct 45 thousand units in one
year. The President had indi-
cated that the least he would
take would be 70 thousand for 2
years. The Senate had voted 135
However, it is my prediction
that there will be no special
session. The President can have
the housing issue thoroughly ar-
gued in the early days of the
next session and can have what-
ever action is necessary debated
on a road bill. There is much to
be done concerning a road bill,
and the several months during
this fall should be devoted to
working out kinks in this partic-
