In all probability world consumo- irai nimm will exceed world r.ot- ton nrndt.clinn. possibly i,v as much as 4,000.000 uales. Hie Council ex- pert declared. He pointed out that at the beginning of the new crop season world carryover likely will be about 18,000,000 bales, or near normal, and indicated that the world supply situation may continue tight for Die next twelve months. Even though United states farmers should achieve the Department of Agriculture's acreage goals and obtain average yields, production in tills country would be only 12.500.C03 bales, giving a total domestic supply of 15 million bale.i. Dunn said that in all probability however, production in this country would read) only 11.750,000 bales. Should domestic mill consumption slump to 9.000.0CO bales, there would be only 3.050,003 bales available for export. The world supply situation will be further tightened by failure of expanded Brazilian production to materialize, he continued. Even if Brazil harvests 1800.000 bales this year, she will still fall 750.000 bales short of her peak. Expects Consumption Increase 'African cotton yields seem destined for a decline In favor of food and' medicinal oilseed crops, with no more than 800.000 bales available for export during the next 12 months. Dunn said that India probably would have no more than 1,500,000 bales of cotton available for ex- port during the coming year, nil of which will be .extremely short staple. He added tlinl Russia probably would not have more than 200,000 to 303.0CO bales for exjxjrt, after meeting domestic needs. Total American-type cotton available fnr exports from nil countries outfit)!- the United States, during the next year was estimated by the speaker nl about 4,750.000 bales. On (he -market side, he forecast that consumption in the major, cotlon-'ouyiiig nations would Increase by atout 10 per cent, bring- Gardeners Must Battle Many Pests Almost every garden crop is subject to attack Uy one or moro species of aphlds or plant lice.

During the 1945-40 season, about half of American cot- tnn exports were handled through CCC and UNRRA; during the current season these affencies handled about 1-3 of the exports, and next vear they will be out of the picture entirely. Tnkcs Lone Ixx* at Future '• , Looking five years into the future, Dunn said that there is every indication that the annual markets for foreign cotton In Europs win be limited to 7 million bales. This figure, excludes Russian consumption he added. H(. said that consumption in Europe wns of nartlcnlar significance in that spinrlles on the continent nnd the Unil-ci Kingdom have always consumed half of all the cotton iiscci in the world and very substantial amounts of U. S. cotton. "In the 1920's from M to 80 per cent of our exports were to Euro- rean markets. In the period 193438. 70 per cent went to Europe. Durins the war 80 per cent went to Europe, niul just prior to tlie war to total consumption of cotton in Europe was relatively constant at about 11 million hales nn- man advised.

Decreasing domestic and world demand for European textiles. 5. Steady growth of the synthe- nnally." the speaker explained. Of all the countries in Europe, he felt that Russia is most likely to re-establish fully her textile In- dusiry, building consumption to as much as 4 million bales during the next five years. The other nations, he believed will do well to increase their cotton consumption as much as 15 per cent beyond the present level. •Reasons for lessened cotton textile production in Europe were listed by Dunn as follsws: 1. War damage to textile manufacturing equipment and lack of replacement machinery. 2. population loss ranging from 1 per cent in England to 30 JM?" cent In Poland and consequent extreme labor shortage. 3. Shortage of coal and oilier 01 X.IKSSMDU s[nni EGGS A DOLLAR A DOZEN? Lagging Chick Saks Point to Shortage of Eggs and Poultry by Fall as Expected Surpluses Fail to Develop. IT MAY HAPPEN -WHY?

April 18.—(API —'Ijk egg supply situation shows signs*'of building up to severe jrlase. next Pall and early Winter. The Agriculture Department reported Wednesday that despite a volume of production far above av- rrage. relatively few eggs are moving into cold storage for consumption later in the year when production normally falls off. Under normal conditions, eg?s nre stored in large volume during. March. April and Jfay. This is the .season of heaviest production and lo.vest prices. Likewise, under nor- nial conditions, the trade is able to make money -by buying eggs during the heavy production season and holding them for sale later in Ihc year when, because of a lower level of production, prices L-O lip. Eggs in storage on April I this year were only 16 -per cent of nor- inal foro that date and only 13 per cent of a year ago. Not since 19£i have April 1 stocks been so low. These Facts Point to High Egg and Poultry Prices THERE IS NO SURPLUS. Eggs arc disappearing as fast as they are being laid. And far too lew baby chicks are being started to meet (he demand for poultry and eggs next fall. Poultry experts don't need a crystal ball lo predict Ihis coming shortage and liigh esgs and poultry prices. They just look at these cold facts of the U. S. nep.irtment of Agriculture which tell the story: 1. Al the season when CRSS would normally be movms into Murage in great volume, .docks nf shell tggs arc ctwincHin;;. In February this reduction amounted to 70,000 cases. On March 1 there was only abour half an egg in storage for every American. A year ago there were 1'i million cases —about 7 times as many. 2. Frozen tffs in storage decreased by 7 million poimils in February ns compared to an increase, of 6 million pounds in February a year ago. .7. f.fg production In February was 4Cr below a year ago line lo OCr fewer layers. 4. Americans are eating eggs at a rcc-onl rate because of high purchasing power and h!»h meal. prices. 5. There were 55 million fewer chickens on farms January 1 than (here were a year ago. 6. Virtually all signs point to an excellent grain producing season in 1317 which normally means lower feed prices. A record wheat crop and another 3 billion bushel corn crop are forecast.

Olhcrs !is(«l nt riah(. Dotnils of llio International Harvester policy of making price reductions to save customers approximately $20,000,000 a year have now been worked out. Prices have been reduced on 163 models. These cover i2 basic models of farm tractors, 123 basic models of farm machines, 16 basic models of industrial tractors and engines, and 12 models of motor trucks, as well as certain motor truck attachments. The new lower prices are effective as of March 10, 19'I7. These reductions wore made not because of any decline in demand, but because Ihc company believes nothing is more important than to lower the prices of the goods people buy. While prices have nol been changed on all products, rsductions have been made wherever possible, in the amounts possible. Prices of many of the most popular products have been substantially lowered. Altogether, more than half of the company's customers will be benefited by the reductions, which range from 1% to 23.8';,', and from $2.50 to §300 per item, based on the company's list prices. The ability to maintain these lower prices will depend on the supply and price of materials the company buys from others and on uninterrupted production at reasonable wage levels. The prices listed hef'c carry out the announced policy-that "Any price is'loo high ij U can bo reduced." As dealers in this territory, we will do our parti Lower Prices on many types of I. H.
