IO-WJ- The Agriculture Department tods? estimated this year's cotton crop at 16,446.000 bales of 500 pound gross weight,/'.:. . This is 503,000 bales more than 'he 14.343.000 tales forecast a month ago. H compares with last year's crop of 14,868,000 bales arid with the ten-year (1938-47) average of n.306,000 bales. . The crop apparently is large enough to require the government to propose rigid marketing quotas on 19oO production to prevent a top- heavy slll . p i ll£ . qn 0 t as would nave to be approved by at least two- thirds of the growers voting In referendum. A decision of quotas must be made by Secretary Brannan by Oct. 15. A referendum, if ordered, probably would be held by Dec. 10. In accompanying report, the Cenwis Bureau said 5,309,240 bales of this year's crop had been ginned prior to Oct. 1. This compared with 5,303.456 bales ginned to the same date last year and 3,907,801 the year before that. :qsy Target for Russian Fighters .; • By DburUs B..
