July 8.—<Ah-A 7.567,000-acre decrease in American farmland planted to cotton prompted AAA oiicials to declare today the "effectiveness” of the crop control law had been demonstrated conclusively The federal crop reporting board estimated that acres in cultivation on Julv I totalled 26,904.000. contrasted with 34 471.000 a year ago. LOW PRICES AFFECT Under the control program, dc- j signed to prevent the accumulation of price-depressing surpluses, the Agriculture department had allotted | growers 27,527.596 acres this year. Thus the crop board'* estimate in- I dicated farmers made a sharper re- I ^ duction in plantings of the South s big crop than had been asked. However, the crop board said other factors also led to the reduction. It mentioned low prices received for last year * crop, and difficulties farmers encountered in securing good crop stands because of unfavorable weather. The board said that should abandonment of cotton acreage during the remainder of this season be equal to the 1928-37 average abandonment, the acreage for harvest would be the smallest since 1900. Last year * acreage produced a record cror of 18.945.000 hales and added to e surplus now estimated at 13.000.000 bales FEW PENALTIES SEEN While the crop board made no forecast of production this year, cotton experts said a crop of between 10.00.000 and 11.750.000 bales was Indicated. I W. Duggan, director of the Agricultural Adjustment administration for the major portion of the cotton belt, said the report Indi- I rated that relatively few of the ap- j proximately 2.500,000 punters would i be subject to penalty provisions of the marketing quota system, which will be invoked to control sale of the crop Each grower’s quota will be the cotton produced on hi* acreage allotment. Sales of cotton produced on acres in excess cf the allotment would be subject to a penalty of two cents a pound.'

July 8. —(/P>—Six death-defying adventurers, their food supply exhausted, sailed into this outpost of civilization today—victors ever 300 turbulent miles of the menacing Colorado river. The four men and twro women. their food supplies low', brought their three tiny boats to shore for their first contact with civilization since leaving Green River, Utah, June 20. They reported two narrow brushes with death during the more than 300 miles of cataracts and treacherous rocks. Concern had been felt for the party when it failed to arrive July 4. the date tentatively set by Norman D. Nevills. Utah riverman and the leader. However, a coast guard plane located the party last night 20 miles above here and reported all was well. The scientific expedition included two botanists from the University of Michigan, Elzada Clover, 40, and Lois Jotter. 25, who became the first of their sex successfully to ride the Colorado. At one point along the treacherous gorge, the boat occupied by Eugene Atkinson, University of Michigan geologist, and W. C. Gibson, San Francisco artist-photographcr. overturned. Gibson swam ashore and was picked up by one of the other boats. Atkinson clung to the overturned craft and was swirled downstream by the raging torrent. Fighting stubbornly, the geologist was carried over seven or eight rapids in the famous C ataract canyon, "Graveyard of the Colorado." Miss (.’lover and Nevills braved the rapids in a downstream rush to aid their comrade. Finally, at the mouth of C’hipman creek, Miss Clover and Nevills rescued the drenched man. Miss Clover, tired but smiling, said their only other narrow escape occurred at the Junction of the Green and Colorado rivers. some 120 miles south of Green river. Carried downstream by an eddy they sailed into the Colorado, the three tiny craft were beached, after a hard battle with swift water. One empty boat broke away, however, and was swept downstream. The intrepid adventurers, except Miss Jotter, jumped into the two remaining craft and gave chase.
