(JF) southern cotton industry appears to have substantially re- covered from the shock of Octo- ber's price break, and everyone from farmer' to broker expects 1947 to bring a slowly but steadily rising mar- ket. Brokers quote some impressive figures on supply and demand to stress the comparative soundness of today's market, and 'point to a drastic reduction in speculation since the October tumble which caused temporary closing of the major exchanges. Many producers, particularly large planters, are reported still holding onto unsold cotton in ex- pectation of higher prices. The consensus was expressed in a recent new letter by a lead- ing brokerage firm: "The cotton sitj.iat.ioh generally suggests tbat as the season higher are in store." The market has recovered nearly half the October losses. The average price- of middling spot cotton, which dropped from 38.93 to 29.20 cents a pound in October, was at Saturday's close. A "great increase in specula- tive activity" was blamed by Sec- retary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson-for the October break.' The amount of loss inflicted upon farmers by the price drop is indeterminate. The farm cred- it administration in Orleans reports payments on loans have declined since October, but they can't estimate how much is at- tributable to Ions from the mar- ket bust. Part of the repayment this area, they point out; is un- under master southwest.- teachers of the IWEATHER! l cloudy to- r.icht and Tuesday; Komewhnt fi-lder extrfino north lonight; Tuesday slightly warmer west north; low temperatures to- r.icht in low 30's extreme north lo 40-s in the south.

Brokers point out two succes- sive years of short crops, in thb face of increasing domestic and foreign consumption, means ris- ing demand and diminishing sup- ply which is bound to bring high- er prices. "As a consequence of these two short 'says a report from the firm of Shearaon, Hammil and company, "it can be readily understood why an almost fran- tic demand for spot cotton is al- ready reported under! way in. southern markets even though the crop has just been harvest- ed." The department of agriculture is urging farmers to increase the national cotton acreage, from to "In says the Shearson, Hammil report, "if farmers do npt plant a good acreage next spring, serious'trouble seems in store for spinners in the 1948- 47 season." -K- Cold Adds To Misery Of Jap Areas Death Toll of Quake And Tidal Waves Rising As Isolated Regions Report By TOM LAMBERT TOKYCv Dec. 23, the toll of dead calculated a high as so far, thousand; of wretched, shivering Japunesi tonight huddled around fires, near the waterlogged wreckage of their homes destroyed by the earthquake and tidal waves ear ly Saturday.
