Tills compart* with 11.250,000 hales held iu April. 19.19. Also benefiting the cotton fann- er, Anderson said, are: 1.

"If two per cent of the amount received by farmers from the sale of cotton and cottonseed went inti research," he declared, "it «•<"•• amount to a total of about $26-" ; The Agriculture Department "\i' strongly behind proposals to bring total cotton research more in line with that figure," Anderson said. The government hopes to hnvs fiSO.OM bales of surplus cotton delivered or en route to Japan and the U. s. zone of occupation in German by August, he revealed. The cotton will be paid for in cotton textiles. Arrangements may be made for use of American cotton in the British. French and Russian zones of German occupation.
