Monelaiy worth of this year's cot- tcn crop was listed at 5212.000,000, with the report attributing the boost in values to increases resulting from higher Prices. Following cotton was corn with a.

These estimated figures for Mississippi County listed cotton and cottonseed at S38.0CO.OCO as the result of a bumper crop, which was in sharp contrast with lower yields for some other parts of the stale and for the cotton producing areas of the entire Southland.

Only GO holdover senators would be qualified to vote at that time. 31 Democrats and 29 Republicans. Other Action Possible An ouster move on grounds of moral turpitude would be in order after Bilbo and the rest of those elected in November had been sworn in. The Senate division then would be 51 Republicans and 44 Democrats, not counting Bilbo. But according to Republican researchers, an ouster motion needs two-third vote lo carry. And Republican strength alone would be dcztMi short. Bilbo insisled he was innocent of any wrongdoing in any of the charges. Meanwhile, the war investigating committee went ahead with a contempt citation against BiFSo's former secretary, Edward P. Terry, for his refusal to answer questions. N. Y.
