mate of Crop Condition on July 25
Coluinpta, Aug. 1.-Condition re
port under average date of July 25, is
sued by the American Cotton associa
tion, shows that the percentage is 75.2
according to its estimates. The re
port also sums up labor conditions,
the demand abroad, cost of produc
tion and manipulation.
The report .in full follows:
'As a result of one of the most care
ful and painstaking inves-tigations as
to the condition of the cottonl erop and
vital facts bearing thereon, this in
vestigation being probably one of the
most complete and thorough ever
made, we beg to report that we find:
'First, As to the condition of the av
erage (late of July 25, 1920, 75.2. The
crop is from three to four weeks late,
extremely sappy and subject to seri
ous deterioration as a result of ad
verse weather conditions, whieh are
universal 'through August.
As a result of recent adverse wvea
ther conditions, Colton is already
shedding badly. On account of the
lateness of the crop and the sappy
condition of the same it offers on in.

frost spells the certainty of an enor

absolltely imsl)sb11)le even 'with ideal
l .weather con(itionF, with the great
shortage of labor, to harvest a crop
larger than the average short crop for

- Also a result of our investigations

face with the fact that the world will

- are facing an enormous Increased de
mand for raw cotton. There Is a press

facing the absolute certainty of an

mously increased demand for cotton
n goodp. worldwide, and the great
deartli of same, there being an in
creaped dennd ever3where 'in the
world for cotton cloth.
The growing crop will be the most
costly ever produced. As a result of
the imporlatioti of Oriental oils, cot
