Tlie statement was made by Frank J.

D. Hovvel). Agriculture Deport-' nienl economist, said Ihe cotton industry laces a "serious situation" once (he present postwar shortages have been met. He said this could Im avoided only by "fully explblt- ln«" potential new cotton markets. Welch, noting Ihat Soulhern agriculture Is "rclalivcly inefficient" by comparison wilh other farming areas, said one of the firsl steps in iiclplnc tlic Southern fanner must be to increase Ihc size of the average Southern farm and wipe but "uneconomic" units. l!c said Ihal in 1944, 62.5 per cent of :ill farms in thc 10 Southern stales comprised less than 30 acres while 02 per cent were less than 100 acres. "If Soulhern Agriculture is to become better balanced and efficient." he Slid, "the family sized farm,"«c- coiding to horse and buggy sta'nd- .ords. must Rive way to family-sized farms using modern power and cniiipmenl." ••<• Welch said he did not suggest that each farm should have tractors, flame cultivators and mechanic cal cation pickers. Often, he said the substitution of two-mule plow for one-mule plow would Increase production tremendously. N.Y. Stocks Final Slock Prices: A T &T Amer Tobacco ."...!
