"At (lie .75 rate of export payment, there would be still available sufficient cotton export of approximately 600.000 additional bales under the program," he said.

The Board's seasonally adjusted index of production rose last month to 12a, best figure of 1929. The statisticians pointed out the -figure does not mean as much now as it did in 1929, because the index makes no allowance for increasing population and factory capacity. What it means is that certain key industries arc turning out about the «imc amount of goods now as they did in 1929. The reason the country is not as prosperous as then is that consumption of goods, capital investments and other economic factors are not as favorable. The 125 index for November was the peak of a sensational upswing in factory production which started with a May level of 92. The index advanced to 98 in June. 101 in July, 103 in August, 111 in September, and 120 in October. In November last year, the rate was 103. Ridgdill Again Is ElectedAs Clerk W.O.W.
