Cotton Estimate Is Raised to I2,2I2,OOO Bales on Saturday Southern Senators Propose Trading Cotton Carryover Abroad for Raw Materials Not Produced in the U. S. WASHINGTON—</P)—The Department of Agriculture estimated Saturday that the cotton crop this year is 12,212,000 bales of 500 pounds -S) The crop forecast a month ngo was 11,825,000. The condlon of the crop on October 1 was reported as 66 per cent of normal, compared wth 65 per cent a month ago. The indicated yield was reported ns 221.1 pounds to the acre, compared with Government Plans to Finance Utility and Rail Industry Long-Term Recovery Program Sought for the Heavy Industries RAILS D¥FRESSED Are Gloomiest Part of the National Business Picture Today NEW YORK,-</P)—gome high circles in Wall Street Friday predicted a broad economic recovery in the United States, basing their expectations largely on the opinion that the fcl- cral government was nbiut to intensify its recovery program as it affects heavy industry. These sources said that recent discussions between business leaders and hdminitration officials in Washington had developed n gigantic tentative plan to stimulate spending by the electric power companies as part of n national defense measure, and serious consideration of measures to facilitate heavy equipment purchases by the railroads. This viewpoint was brought out in a canvass of nearly a score of financial and industrial leaders and Wall Street economists who were asked to E\<ff their candid, off-lhc-rccord views of the business outlook. Outlay ot Billions Most of those questioned believed Uv»t a period of improved business is just beginning and would last at least until next spring. But some who professed knowledge of the heavy industry plans in Washington looked for a longer recovery cycle, pointing out that recent upward cycles had been short lived because heavy industry failed to follow gains in consumers goods lines. < They said a program of great scope partly out of recent consideration of means if linking together electric poWer facilities in the Eastern part of the country as a national defense measure. This program they said, involved expenditure of billions, and its eventual/goal was pi only prepardness h»jt the^-^Wnsfer v/hhlh a porfod of two years of a big portion of the WPA rolls to private industry. On general lines, it said that financing had been proposed as follows: The Reconstruction Finance Corp., in make loans approved by the War Department on an equity basis, of up to 1-2 of the capital finance requirements called for by the plan. The whole arrangement, plus the bolstering of confidence by the R. F. C. financing was expected to stimulate the present dormant market for new Issues of stocks, which would enable companies involved to financing, and eventually repay the R. F. C. Utl lilies Expansion First under consideration, it was said, were the public utilities group. A leading "if" in all current business predictions has been whether the utilities generally would borrow money to build new generating plants and transmission lines before or after a general business pickup made the expansion inevitable. The proposals wore said to call for tho expend it lire of jiot less than $31)00,000,000, of nuw capital within the next 15 months to two years in the utility field, and further expenditures for the next 10 years of not less than 51,500.000,000 a year. While immediate purpose of the plan calls for the interlocking of existing systems as a prupordness measure, the stimulating effect upon heavy industry generally, bankers and industrialists agreed, would be pronounced. A somewhat similar plan, but still in a more tentative state, cxcutives said, involves the country's leading railroads, which as a group, have made one of the most depressing segments of the national business picture. Key rail executives arc at hand in Washington for conferences relating to the rail labor negotiation:;. From different sources came reports of efforts to arrive at a plan involving R. F. C. loans for new rail and rolling stock replacement. Steel Industry A leading stcecl executive said there had been tentative assurances that a program involving such assistance probbly would be forthcoming. t The steel business is doig well, he sid, in part as a result of the govem- % ment housing program, and expected to do much better when tho PWA construction program reached its peak. He predicted that the steel industry generally would be "out of the red" and ^ running at a profit by the end of November. 2H.1 pounds a month ago. Proposed Cotton Trade WASHINGTON—(/P)-Soulhcrn senators discussed Saturday a proposa for trading surplus American cotton and other farm commodities for need cd raw materials which this country docs not produce.
