Wait Decision On U.S. Cotton Price WASHINGTON (UPI)—The International Cotton Advisory Committee said today the U.S. price policy on government-owned col- ton during the marketing season starting Aug. 1 may be important in determining the free market price of the fiber.

The commitlee said attention thus centers on the stocks held by the Commodity Credit Corp. and the prices at which they are available. It now appears, the committee said, that the CCC will own on Aug. 1 around 1.5 million bales from the 1960-61 and earlier crops. This cotton will be available only at a. minimum of 115 per cent of next season's loan rate plus carrying charges. For middling 1-inch, this would be 38 cents in August and Septem ber, 38.10 cents in October, rising to 39.90 cents in July, 1963. Also, if present regulations are followed the CCC would take title to around 3.5 million bales of the 1961-62 cotton on Aug. 1, which would be available only at these prices. The committee said that at such prices CCC stocks presumably would be sealed off the markel and would not be a primary supply factor. The present spot price for, middling 1-inch c. bit on is around.. 34 cents a pound.
