Secretary Roper appeared before
the Tariff Commission as attorney
for eleven Cuban sugar companies
less than two weeks before he was
appointed to the Cabinet.
There he argued that the present
tariff is so excessive it no longer
operates to affect prices. He ad-
vocated an allotment plan for
Cuban imports. The boys have
stored up this ammunition for use
if and when the Tariff Commission
recommends a reduction of the
There is no authoritative infor-
mation yet as to what the Com-
mission will do. Its recommenda-
tion will be sent to President
Roosevelt shortly. The general as-
sumption among the knowing sugar
lobbies is that a change in the
existing Cuban condition will be
suggested. It is possible the Roper
allotment plan will be endorsed.

Roper appeared February 20 be-
fore the Commission. He listed
the eleven Cuban companies he
represented. The list was head-
ed by The Cuba Cane Products, Inc.
With him was a local attorney—
Elwood W. Rabenold.
Among Roper's conclusions were
"It is perfectly clear that the
domestic industry . . . does not
need further tariff protection
against Cuba. The present tariff
in fact is so excessive that it no
longer operates to affect the price
"The facts compel a material
lessening of the tariff discrimina-
I tion against her (Cuban) sugar
in the American market.”
“If the domestic sugar industry
js to be saved, some proper meth-
od must be devised to control the
output of the Philippine Islands
and our other island possessions
and Puerto Rico so that the urge
to sell below a normal market
price will cease to exist."
“ A sane allotment of the
American market among sugar pro-
ducers who supply it (is necessary)
with proper restrictions on the un-
limited production in the Philip-
pines and Puerto Rico."
"To follow the 'Buy American'
policy (o its natural and possible
conclusion is not only to defeat the
major program of needed public
policy but also to carry our people
in their thinking and in their at-
titude to ridiculous extremes—such
as 'Buy Washington,’ then 'Buy a

except in war times, wheat shot
almost 5 cents upward today and
reached 70 cents a bushel at one
time for September delivery.
The sensational rise eclipsed sea-

corn, oats and other grains and

These prying sugar Congressmen
have also learned that the Cuban

tas was formerly a business as-
sociate of Treasury Secretary Wood-
in. Their information is that Dr.
Cintas wafc a director in sub-
sidiaries of Woodin's company,

All of which probably would not
make two whoops of difference on
the Administration's sugar policy.
