(UP) —A European war of several years dur.Uicm will enable the United States to become the wcrld's dominant cotton - producing country, President Oscar Johnston of tlie ntlciiitl Cotton Council snid today. "At present," Johnston snid, "col- ton has been dealt n staggering blow by the European conflict. We hnd expected exports of ,e,ODO,ODO bales Ihis year, but new we can anticipate not more -limn-' •1,000,000 bales bein^ shipped overseas. "It is (rue tfiat huge quantities of cotton are used in manufacture' of ammunition and uniforms. But it is nls: true that domestic uses of cotton drop sharply in the belligerent nations where non-combatants must (.'conomizo in sheets, shirts, suits nml other ccttoa goods. The economy practiced in domestic use more than offsets in the first year or two or war the quantity c( low grades nnd fibers used in mn- muniUon." Johnston, recognized ns one cf the foremast cotton economists, predicted that a long war would force a readjustment of International trade! in cotton nud textiles of tremendous magnitude, 'this readjustment, lie said, undoubtedly would be favorable to Ihe United Slates. "On tlie basis of cold facts," he snid. "this nation is Icgically in n position to gain the dominant role in cotton production and exports after two or more years of war. Colton-pr:ducin; countries such ns Inclin and Egypt would lie affected adversely by the war because of their relation to Great Britain. "If Ihe United Stales stays out of the conflict, gi-ovcrs of the smith may reasonably look forward to n prosperous period. For if we stay out, the nations ;>t war will need cotton nnd textiles and plenty of them." Even the immediate cotton picture. Jrhnston said, is fairly bright. He said <lome.5lie consumption (hir, .war would jump lo around 3,000,000 bales, which added to tlie exports would mean n l:lal consumption exceeainz the current crop and subsequent rclcnse ot a small portion of the colt:)) )» the federal government's 1038 loan. Tlie situation, he said, docs not warrant relaxing acreage contr:!, lioncvcr. nnd he believes the federal cotton ra-o?ram should be continued in 19-10. Johnston expressed belief Dial ll)i> r\p:rt. subsidy would not materially aid exports this year and he niiestioncrl (lie wisdom of continuing it. in the future. -, ..ItllOUt , Hie iilsli command asserted ; oi j today. • •„,.,(„ (,-ii, 1, ""' lllfil1 command communique luuUer the admiralty spokesman Indicated that the balile was Die ereuti'st nnd the most drmimllc .... foiijihi between nil-planes and wni ,shl|K-..i buttle such as nnvul an nil-pinup experts Iwve awullcd fo ywirs lo decide tin- entire fuliii- of sea wnifare. said that then 1 wns absolutely no truth in an official German report liiat the German ulrcroft hnd sunk n BrllLsh nlrcraft eni-iier and hnd damaged a battleship.
