The opinion went to Prosecuting Attorney Elmo Taylor, Scarcy, who outlined u While county tiUiution prompting the inquiry. of the approximately 5^7,000,000 made available by Congress for the program. "At I he .75 rate of export payment, there would be still available sufficient cotton export of approximately 600.000 additional bales under the pro'- grain," ho said. "Cancellation of some committments because of the war could increase this total slightly," Cotton experts said the department hop'jd to stretch the funds to cover export of slightly more than 6.000,000 bales by tho time the current season ends next August 1.

'Die production forecast a month ago was 11,845,000 bales. Production last year was 1,943,000 bales, and 18,945.022 in 938. The average for the 10 years 1928-37 was 13,8000,000.

Factories Going at Gait of 1929 November Equal to Best Month of Bana.^. 1 -. nerYear : WASHINGTON -(!?}- The- Federal Reserve Board said'Thursday night that during November factory production reached- the statistical equivalent' of^ the best month of 1929. The Board's seasonally adjusted index of production rose last month to 125, best figure of 1929. The statisticians pointed out the -figure does not mean as much now «s it did in 1929, because the index makes no allowance for increasing population and factory capacity. What it means is that certain key industries are turning out about the same 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. •-4 Ridgdill Again Is ElectedAs Clerk W.O.W.
