LIVE TOPICS OF THE COMMERCIAL WORLD
OF COTTON URGED
President of National Dry
Goods Association Calls It
Vital to Victory.
Federal control of cotton Is of prim
necessity In helping to win ths war,
V, A. Patrick, president of the National
Wholesale Dry Goods Association, said
'"Cotton Is as essential to war In one
way or another as almost any other
product," Mr. Patrick said, "and I see
no .reason whv It should not he con
trolled for the n lion's benefit just as
wool, coal and sugar are."
Mr. Patrick, who Is of the firm of F.
a! Patrick Co., wholesale dry foods of
thiluth, said a greater realisation of the
nation's war responsibilities has been
brought about by the Institution of mili
tary law In the "various lake port cities.
-He said this realization has resulted
In a general tendency by the public to
economise. This tendency Is reflected In
an avtrfent resistance against high
prices, he) went on, explaining that the
bulk of business In the Western cities Is
being dons on staples.
"Retail trade Is good and merchants
are doing a satisfactory volume," lie
said, "but a decided preference for staple
goods Is shown. Neither are Western
merchants particularly concerned over
tho payment of war taxes, which seem
to be causing no little anxiety In the
Xast The feeling Is generally that the
Government will adopt a plan whereby
their payment will be extended over a
period of Ume, and I confidently expect
av. measure tor sucn provision
adopted before the tax due date

cant of the 16.750,000 worth of furs sold

LIBERTY BOND PRIZE
PERMITTED IN GOLF
Liberal Interpretation or
Amatour Status Rule by
U. S. G. A.
All doubts as to whether the United
States Golf Association would aanetlon
the ofterlnr of Liberty bonds or War
Stamps as prlies for competitions were
set at rest In a communication sent out
by Howard F. Whitney, secretary of ths
association, last nlht.
Aftor careful consideration the execu
tive committee of ths national body be
lieves that during tho period of the war
a liberal Interpretation of the by-law de
fining; amateur status should be taken,
and therefore that Liberty bonds or War
Stamps aa prises will not affect the ama
teur status of players.
The same liberal Interpretation Is riven
concerning; the payment of expenses ol
players Jn matches for the purpose of
ralslnr money tor me nea uross, i. au
C. A. or other recognized war charities.
Tho committee, however, reserves the
rlfht to take action In any case where
this Interpretation la abused for .mer
cenary motives. "
During- the period of the war u is ine
recommendation of the committee that
nn valuable nrlses of any character be
played for, and It is suggested that
money so expended In the past should be
donsted to the war funds. Anotner J.io
erty Tournament will be hld on July 4,
the same as last year.
