MORNING AVALANCHE , Mmrch 28, 1942 ,;#.•::-•..:•' EN L« I ~ 4 • * • here are the FACTS on what the recent WPB rulin on clothing means to YOU There have been a lot of stories making the rounds lately about how strange men are going to look in the new "Victory Models/' .Newspapers, magazines, and newsreels have talked about—and pictured—.men wearing suits with no lapels, suits with extreme short coats, suits with skimpy trousers, etc. Our answer to all such propaganda is just this: NO IMMEDIATE CHANGES OF ANY IMPORTANCE ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE.l.N THE STYL- ING OF MEN'S CLOTHING! IN THE FIRST PLACE the order only affects clothing manufactured after March 30th! In other words—because we have to plan about 6 months ahead, all of the clothing that we have in stock for' spring and summer, was ordered and tailored—months ago—and it is absolutely no different in design than the clothing we've been showing . this season, last season or the season before. ACTUALLY, the only thing that will happen to the clothing you buy from us after March 30th is that the trousers won't be styled with cuffs. You'll agree with us, we're sure, that a change as insignificant as this isn't going to cause any great hardship. After all, dress clothes never have had cuffs, and cuffless trousers for regular suits have often been an accepted style in the past. THE OTHER POINTS covered in the WPB ruling— namely that coats wilf be shorter (by only half an inch, however), that double-breasted suits can be vestless, that there can be no more two-trouser suits and that trousers cannot have pleats, apply exclusively to clothing made AFTER March 30th . . . and, we repeat, such clothing, for the most part, won't be available in our store until early next fall! AFTER SEEING THE DETAILS OF THIS RULING IN BLACK AND WHITE, THERE'S REALLY NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT . . . NOW IS THERE? In conclusion, we urge you to remember this: no matter what happens, Hart Schaffner & AAarx clothes will continue to be the best available in quality, fit and good looks. This has al- ways been true of these famous clothes regardless of the times — and it will hold true as long as Hart Schaffner & Marx are in busi- ness!

(J ———— •—• —:—-• Ten-Million Bale Given ,,^.. 'By Tbf United Press) HOUSTON, March 27.—John B Hutson, president of, the Commodity Credit Corp., said . today-that the nation's cotton-carry-over on Aug. 1 will be about 10,000,000 bales, a reduction of 2,000,000 from Aug. l, 1941...; Hutson, speaking to the 31st annual convention of the Texas cotton association, said that most of the reduction would come from government-owned stocks which have dropped from 6,919,933 bales in 1941 to about 4,500,000 at present. Cotton Transferred • "So far this season, approximately 560,000 bales of Commodity Credit corporation cotton have been transferred under lend-lease about 680,000 have been disposed of under the general sales program, 230,000 bales have been sold for export and some 29,000 bales have been resold for new uses, the net result of which has been to reduce stocks to about 4 500 000 bales at the present time," Hutson said. "If the monthly sales in the open market continue at the present rate, the total of 1,500,000 bales authorized by law will have been disposed of by the middle of the summer, thus reducing stocks of government-owned cotton from crops prior to 1941 to approximately 3,800,000 bales." To Be Reduced Further Stocks would be reduced 'still further by any additional .lend- lease transactions, he said. The 1941 cotton loans are being repaid, at the rate of almost 2,000 bales a day and there were outstanding 1,746,000 bales on March 14, he said. Cotton consumption now exceeds 45,000 bales a day and when mills adopt around-the-clock production, domestic consumption and exports may reach or exceed 1,000,000 bales a month, he said, Hutson advocated the growing of better cotton because of a pronounced upward trend for higher quality in all types of goods, especially in military goods. Want Stabilization "The Commodity Credit corporation wants to stabilize prices and promote an orderly and balanced flow of commodities," he.said. "We want to see the price-support program on cotton operate in such a manner that the maximum possible quantity of cotton moves through the normal channels of trade." The convention opened with an address by Sydnor Oden, association president, who called on management, labor and government to work together in the war effort. Slaton Will Be Host To Postal Employes.

(.*)_ The Pre-Easter buying surge carried retail sales during the past week to a new peak' since the Christmas rush, Dun & Bradstreet reported today.
