Aug. 9 W) '_ Secretary of Agriculture Brannan eased restrictions on export ol col- ton yesterday after the federal crop reporting board forecast a bumper crop of 1T.266.000 bales. Rigid export quotas will be replaced by an "openenri" export licensing system under, which friendly countries can get all the cotton they want. This system will permit the government to bar shipments to unfriendly areas. Cotton was placed under export ^controls last fall when last year's - poor crop, coupled with Increasec demands under the defense program, raised the threat of a shortage. The department had perviousls announced a preliminary export, allocation of 3,500,000 bales from this year's supply. These allocations were in effect set aside by today's action. Brannan aaid the export order is in line with his department's previously expressed policy of providing for the export of all cotton not required for domestic consumption and maintenance of minimum reserves. The secretary' said that by em- pioying an export licensing system, the government would be able to keep the cotton supply situation tinder constant review and hence be in a position to take whatever action might be needed later to protect domestic needs.
