The short crop, joined with low prices, is estimated to have reduced the cash Income from' col- ton by 65 million dollars as compared to last year, a decline of 55 per'cent.

Ofthtr Crops Also Short Deari Fichtner called attention to the'short, product! on of other important crops In Arkansas. "All .fruit crops except crap« are fur below normal producticn." he sn'r.l "Apples arc off 55 per cent. p?ars 40 per cent, strawberries TJ per cent and peaches 96 per cent. \ViUi the exception of n 5 per cent increase in potato production, all miscellaneous crops sustained marked declines In-production as compared to last .year: rice is off 17 per cent. peanuts 54 per cent, sugar CO pel cent, and sorgo 28 per cent. "The feed situation is critical." Dean Fichtner said. "Corn produc- 1 tlon is down 70 per cent, hay -1'i per cent, alfolfa 34 per cent, onts 2 per cent, and while fall rains have' helped the pastures, their condition on Octobsr 1 is estimated nt only 65 per cent of the average of the preceding six years. "The available data on agriculture for the past year would lend one to' conclude Hint the money Income of farming in this state will be reduced by as much as 40 p;r cent and that the real Income will be reduced by" at least 30 per cent from last year, compared to an estimated reduction of 19 psi' cent for the nation as a whole." Discussing mineral production and manufacturing activity, Dr. Fichtner said: "Mineral production in the state has been fairly well maintained. The average daily petroleum production declined about • 17 per cent during the last quarter • of 1929 but has been since kept at that level. The output of coal is no less than during" corresponding seasons last year. Lower prices, of course, obtain for both conl and petroleum. Lumbtr Mills Slack "Data on manufacturing In Arkansas would indicate about a 30 per cent decline in lumber milling, furniture manufacture and glass manufacture this fall, although acute depression seems mt , to have set In' until early summer. In certain lines such as wood parts, cooperage and veneer plans, gain? have been recorded. Textile mills are fairly active. Keports from 47-1 ductlons.

Renewed activity in auto- body and spoke plmHs will likewise uwalt recovery in the nulo- mobllc field. Commenting on the unemployment situation in Arkansas, Dean Fichtncr said, "The supply of farm labor is 20 per cent above normal and demand 25 per cent.below normal. The supply expressed as n percentage of demand Is ICO per cent as compared to Hi per cent In the country ns a whnie. Farm wages or the average arc 23 per cent lower 'than a year ago. "Unemployment in mining, manufacturing and mercantile enterprises is not so great. Figures from some SCO companies show only about a 10 per cent reduction in the number of employes as compared to a year ago. Wage cuts, commonly of 10 per cent, have been reported In many establishments, nnd il would renn that further reductions are In prospects. "The average weekly pay check on Nov. 1, 1930, was $20.26 os compared to S22.31 on Oct.' 15, IB29. Wages hove not fallen as rapidly as In the depression of 1920-21 nt ; which time the average weekly pay j check declined from S24.1-! on Oct. '• 15, 1920. to S15.3G on Sept. 15, 1921."
