BIythevilie Hits China's Mills Operations to Be Cut By 45 Percent; Reds Seek to Up Imports By Cliirke Reach WASHINGTON — Tile spllldle-S of China's cotlon mills arc whirling slower and slower for lack of raw/ cotton. That's bad for Mao Tzc-tung. It will grcally complicate tho problem.? of his Communist government. The Office of Foreign Agricultural Relations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that China's mill operations this year will be no more than 45 per cent of last year's level. The seriousness of this lies in the fact that cotlon textile production is by far China's largest •nnnufacturlng industry. The cotton shortage Is caused by 'wo factors: (1) Chinese farmers iren't raising as much coton as they used to and (2) cotton imports are declining drastically. Cotton acreage has dropped from 8,300,000 in the 1937-1038 period to 5,300,000 this year. Farmers are finding It more profitable to raise grain. Agriculture Department observers in China estimate that the Chinese cotton crop this year won't exceed ,700,000 bales. This Is one of the mallest crops in years, less than half the production In the. 1936938 seasons. To keep the,mills running at the present rate, 1,575,000 >ales would be needed for the year But the mills don't get all of the native cotton crop. Normally about ,000,000 bales a year are used In homes to make padded winter clothes. The Chinese Communist regime hopes to cut down the home use o cotton this year to 825,000 bales so that the mills will gel 875,000 bales Then It hopes to import 400.00C bales. This would provide a total o 1,275,000 bales for the mllls-^stil far short of current rate of use. But the Agriculture Departmen men see little chance of any such volume of Imports. They estimal that no more than 150,000 bales wil come from the United States. Ant* the prospects look even dlmnie on hogs.

I do not ex- lect damage from boll weevils In lorth Mississippi County until after migration starts and if we have considerable dry weather. North Mississippi County farmers may still not learn what the boll weevil Is. In recent weeks I have sent several weevils to the University for identification. Different farmers were afraid that they had found cotton boll weevil. They have all turned out to be something else so far. Biff Ajrl nay Arkansas Tech nt Russellvillc is putting on Its greatest.

If the farm women generally knew Iiow Mrs. Bruce riyid can people recently, confused the doctors, defied new drugs and generally wore out (lie patients' health. From office calls you would think a similar virus has struck mnny young poultry flocks. Young chicks are reported sick In large numbers, sit and (jnsp for breath for a few hours, then die. I talked to Mr. Pollard, State Poultry Specialist, yesterday about the chick troubles and he guessed Infectious bronchitis, but it inlRlil also be laryneo-trnche- Itls or Newcastle.

China uses little of the Egyptian type. China's position as an Importer Is unfavorable at this time. The Na- < tionallst blockade of ports has dls- courged shippers. The country has little foreign money or credit. And exporters in other countries don't like the terms of present contracts I to supply goods to China. They don't feel too sure they will get their money. j The United States in post-war years has supplied bout 300,000 bales of cotton a year through the Economic Cooeration Administration— all given free to the Chinese Nationalist government for sale to the mills.. This country is not helping Communist China through EGA. The mill owners are going to have to pay with dollars for whatever American cotton they get. At this Ime, according to the department's :en, Mao's government Is exerting 11 kinds of devious pressures on he mill owners to make them use heir hoarded dollar reserves to buy otlon in the United States.
