DISTRICT OFFERS STOPLE COTTON BE Manufactures Association Head Predicts I ligher Prices. BOSTON; July 28 <UP)—cotion goods prices will be higher because of Ihc luck ,of staple cot- lon carried over this year, President, Frank I. Neild of Ihe Na- tii.nal Association of 'Cotton Man- nfncti'rers predicted, today. "Government induced' scarcity plus drouth -conditions have reduced the prospect of a carry-over' of staple cotton almost to the vanishing point," he said. "For Ihe first time within the experience of the present generation of manufacturers the almost complete lack of staple cotton carryover will; be Ihe direct cause of high prices for the new crop. Higher prices for manufactured goods will follow in natural sequence." Added reasons for increased price are the observation of cotton textile code hour and wags regulations in the northern division of the industry and "a strong and fast growing determination to avoid cutting prices below sound market levels," Nclld said.
