REPORT ON COTTON
Association Calls on Congress to ln
vestigate Figures of Last Year.
Columbia, Oct. 4.-J. Skottowe Wan
namaker, president of the American
Cotton association, said last night
that the association would ask for an
investigation by congress of the gov
ernment report on cotton issued
Thursday. This action, he said, would
be tak'n as a result of urgent requests
received by the association, not only
from the produteers and business in
terests in the South, but from other
interests in the various sections, in
cluding the cotton exchanges. The
reiuests, he said, had come from v'a
rious sections of the country.
"The association has been urged
from every section," saild Mr. Vanna
maker, "to take the necessary steps
to have resolutions passed by congress
providing for an investigation as to
the Indicated yield shown by this re.
port. The association is now making
a paiistaking investigation through
out the t ire helt as a resuit of these
complaints and will lay the informa
tion 1wihich it obta ins before congress.
"The governineni. ' report issn1ed
Thursday gave the condition of cot
ton as 51.1. The condition of the crop
on Ile same day last. year was given
at .5-.4. The indicated yield for this
year, according to the government rc
port, 1%s 158 pouinds linit vottonl per
aere. Last eyar, when the condition
was given as being tle same as this
year, the indicated yield was given as
only 1:17 pounds. Why tie difference?
Regardless of the faet that the report
shows serious damage from boll wee
vil, bol worms and insects, it gives
the Indicated yield as being greater
than last year's. The governgent re
port appeared this time In somewhat
changed form, the indicated yield he
ing given by states. The indicated
yield for South Carolina is given as
211 pounds per acre, We know abso
lutely t-hat this is wrong: A canvass
made by our association shows this
to be an error.
"A canvass made by the association
throughout the belt shows that cot
ton is opening prematurely, that the
bolls are undersized. The lint shows
a marked decrease.
"In Justice to the farmer, the manu
facturer and the consumer, ati investi
gation should be authorized by con
gress. We do not charge that the de
partmeinnt of agriculture would inten
tionally overestimate ,the yield. We
have not, however, the slightest doubt
but that an overestimate has been
made. ald the correct indicated yield
