in December were the smallest for any December since the start of the World war Sales last month were far under normal Cause for Worry If this were true of any other commodity than cotton it might not be so serious Inasmuch however as normally 60 per cent of the American cotton crop is marketed abroad and some 10000000 persons depend on the crop for a livelihood there is cause for concern Cotton Ed

Acquit him Disagree In event of a disagreement the customary procedure is to conduct a new trial but state prosecution officials say they must confer with Gov Harold G Hoffman before any decision would be reached WASHINGTON Feb 12 Twice today the supreme court passed opportunities to hand down ts gold cases decision but official dom awaited the third and final possible time before resigning itself to more days ofwaiting An unprecedented announcement made by Secretary Morgenthau last night was interpreted as an attempt to remove business nervousness lest it unsettle trade Casting aside a mask of secrecy for the first time since the treas urys stabilization fund was created Jan 31 1934 Morgenthau said the had been used and would be used to manage American currency abroad Recall Frequent Reports The statement recalled frequent reports that the administration had been preparing to meet any adverse decision with measures designed to steady the dollar and keep it from jumping disastrously Meanwhile there was nothing to indicate whether the high court would choose today or some other day to say whether the administra tion acted constitutionally in voiding the clause calling for the payment of in securities with gold or its equivalent Some thought today would be a good day because American markets are closed Others thought a Satur day would be better If the decision should come on a day other than Saturday the stabilization fund con ceivably might have a job to do be fore dawn the next day some ob servers thought for markets abroad open as early as 5 a m Administration Confident The attitude expressed by admin istration officials is one of confident expectation that the new deal mone tary policy will be upheld and Mor genthau reminded reporters yester day that he had not mentioned the word court in any official utter ance But there was no mistaking that he had the excitement about the i gold cases in mind when he said The country can go about ita j
