JAGB TWO BLYTHEVTLLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEVTS THURSDAY, AUGUST t«, IHt New Zealand Woo/ Price Tumble Leaves'52 Suit Costs Uncertain By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK. Aug. 16. (AP)—A price break of 10 per cent in the New Zealand wool auctions hns the clothing industry wondering today about the price of next year's suits. The price tumble at Auckland comes at the same time thai the British commonwealth nations announce a plan to support wool priced. It comes while many leading makers of woolen fabrics here arc hold- Ing back the opening of their sprnigj lines to see where raw wool prices are going to light in New Zealand .and Australia. Auctions open iir 30 days In Australia, where the trade is reported Jittery. The price break adds spice to a clothing industry situation already complicated by the rush of makers of synthetic fnbrics to try to cap-1 ture a major part of the suit trade. Wool and synthetic men are at Jog- gerhrads over i\ proposal that the Office of Defense Mobilization give a tax-relief Incentive to the expansion of plants to produce synthetics as substitutes for high priced wool, a decision on that by Charles E. Wilson is expected soon. The wool trade here regards the Auckland auction as a good indication of where wool prices may be headed, but spokesmen stress that one day's auction doesn't make A sea.snn, and perhaps not even n trend. The New Zealand auction opened Wednesday after being shut down since February by a waterfront strike, and the 70 per cent drop in price is in comparison with the last prices hi February when wool was at. its price peak. In symjiathy with the New Zealand price tumble, the price of wool was shaved by two to six cents a pound on the futures market of the New York cotton exchange Wednes» day. Most consumers of wool are walling, however, for the opening of the Australian auctions In 10 days. Shearing in well underway In Australia now and the wool Is moving to the warehouses. Australian wool prices fell 50 per c«nl from their peak during the last three months of the spring auctions, but still closed a good 600 per cent above the 1B38 price levels. Australian wool brokers are reported regarding the coming auctions as the opener of what may be the most critical seasons in Australian wool history. Woolmen here are quite anxious to see how the new wool price support plan of the British common wealth nations Is going to work. 3 Missiisippi County Men Appear on Cover Of Monthly Magazine Three Mississippi County men are featured in the cover picture of th» Lag, a magazine published monthly by the Life Insurance Company of Oeorgla.
