^TUESDAY. DECEMBER 19, I9W Cotton Prices Are Found High On Foreign Markets WASHINGTON. Dec. IS. (AP) — Cotton on .foreign markets Ls selling at an average of 20 to 25 cents « pound above cotlon on domestic markets, Agricultural Department figures show. jjtfferal factors combine to cause Ww spread, a spokesman in lhe Department's Division of foreign Agricultural Relations said. One factor, he lold a reporter today, was the department's action last, October 10 in announcing restrictions on export of U.S. cotton in view of defense, needs. However, he said, even before October 10 loreign prices hart moved slightly above domestic prices chiefly lor two reasons: 1. The foreign dollar shortage which kept foreign buyers from purchasing U.S. cotlon and hence caused them to buy elsewhere, and 2. A short supply of'foreign cotton dating back to 1943. The October 10 order — under • which the Department placed a tentative limit of 2,000.000 bales of U.S. cotlon which could be exported—resulted, he said, in a crop in U.S. cotton prices and an immediate rise on foreign markets. foreign Trices SMIL High Since then, as the order became more generally understood, he said, U.S. domestic prices have recovered btit foreign prices, still rellecting «^'shortage, have remained at a nlcher level. Since October 10 the Department relaxed its export order some and has emphasized lhat it is under constant study and subject to further revision. Reports of the division show that a mistake." The world cotlon shortage Is continuing and foreign countries will have difficulty Increasing production materially, he safd, while tht demand In this country will rt- maln high In view ol d«fens« demands. These factors, he said, would tend to give the groweis * good price. Post Office Gets Forms for Alien Registrations Ross S. Stevens, postmaster of the Blytheville Post Office, today announced the receipt of forms on which aliens are to register under the Alien Registration Act of 1940 and that the forms may be obtained at the registry window. • Mr. Stevens said the Post Office Department is distributing, collecting and fnnvarding the cards tor aliens who are required to report their current address in compliance with lhe Internal Securily Act of 1950. Aliens required to report include: (I) Those permanently residing in the U.S.: (2) those temporarily admitted to the U.S. but who have overstayed lhe period of admission; and (3) those who. through violation of the immigration laws, are illegally in the United States.

I'uge Crop Sought The Agriculture Department now Ls calling for 1551 domestic cot- Ion crop o! 16.000.000 bates.
