- Into the methods and practices em
ployed in the marketing of cotton was
ordered by the serrate in the adoption
of the resolution by Senator Smith,
democrat, South Carolina, which seeks
to determine whether there is inter

the carry-over and the estimated pro

abroad has increased but there has
been no corresponding increase in
revenue to the producers, a condition
'hich it is alleged threatens to se
ously damage the industr-y.
