One of the latest of these attractive residence it pictured above. fsicj uses T The use of electricity both for industrial purposes and In the home is showing a steady Increase in the Union ot South Africa, according to ' Assistant Trade Com missioner E. B. Lawson In a bulletin released today by the department of commerce. This Increase, It ts pointed out, has been reflected in Increased shipments of electrical goods from the United States. Last year total American exports of this class haa a value of approximately 12,000,- 000, which was four timet the figure registered In 1022, The report shows a consistent Increase in the amount of electrical current generated in the Union by the 150 or more central stations, alternating current consumption showing the greater gains. The importance of ample supplies of electricity, the report declares, wat recognized by the authorities several years ago by the passage ot an electricity act, tty virtue or which the regulation of electric power projects is more onaless cen tered In two government bodies.' Industrial developments in the Union, since definite steps were taken to foster th operation of local factories, have resulted In Increased demand for electrlo motive power. During the past fifteen years the number ot plants using electricity has more than doubled, these now numbering 1000. The mines afford a very important outlet for electric current In the Union of South Africa, accord-ingMo th Bulletin, accounting for about 76 per cent of the current consumed in the Transvaal. Al though little progress has been made In Introducing electrlo equipment on the farms, this field appears" to offer a vast potential market. In the dairying branch of agriculture the use of electricity is sieaauy expanding. i fclhie facts ng before purchasing HEATING EQUIPMENT J "the dirt free, irutantly responsive fuel. . v. Reduction of ' Cotton Urged By U.S. Board The federal farm board announced today that In cooperation with the UiSlted States department of agriculture. It-will invite a series of conferences In the south looking toward a reduction in the acreage of cotton and a readjustment of the farming programs ot cotton farmers. The acreage plnntert to cotton this year was 45,800,000. The board believes that 40,000,000 acres Is the danger line and that the south as a whole should reduce acreage to that point. The board comments: 'There are, of course, other steps for readjustment of the south's farmlitfr program besides reduction of the acreage of cotton. The south produces too much cotton of poor character and staplelind too little of the better staples. There Is too much unproductive and, therefore, unprofitable land planted to cotton. Too little land Is planted to food and feed crops. ."All of these things will be discussed in a series of conferences with representatives of agricultural colleges, experiment stations, extension divisions and county agent groups, teachers of vocational agriculture, bankers' associations, land ownerBhln groups, the cotton coop eratives, general farm Organizations and all other agencies whose experience and knowledge of the south win help to solve tnese prop lems. "This series ot meetings will be held as quickly as they can be arranged In every cotton state. In them an attempt will be made to work out definite programs suited to the needs of each state and to localities and Individual farmers within the state. All useful facts on the present cotton situation will be presented so that, in the end, every cotton farmer may know within reason what he Is facing before he makes his planting plans next spring.
