OVER THE WORLIP
Washington. - World cotton co
qumption has returned to its pre-w~k
level after a five-year period of AN
consumption, according to a survey
the international cotton sittation coy
ering production, consumption * and
stocks, as of April 1, made public bi
the commerce department.
"The striking feature of the site
tion," the department said, "is an
dleated consumption of 21,000,
bales for the year ending July 31, 1924
approximately 6,000 000 bales mi4
than was produced for the crop year.'
The world carry-over, the depart
ment concluded from its survey; will
return to normal by August 1, 1922
while the outstanding feature of in
tereet now is the degree to which the
cotton production will return to the
pro-war level, or whether it will con
tinue op the basis of the last ivi
years' average of 18,000.000 bales,
Much depends, the department declar
d, on weather conditions and the ex
test to which the boll weevil proves
to be a limiting factor.
