New York, May 30.-Ways and
meaas of rchbtlitating the cotton in
etdUftry and putting It on a preuar
basIs, were disclssed oday at the op)
ening of a national consuitation of
American cotton growers, nanufac
turer-s and affilated -inierents.
Leading cotton growers and govern
mental oflicials warned that the coun
try faced the shortest cotton crop In
the last 25 years, and that unless Im
mediate steps were taken to create a
market and restore the staple to a
profita-ble 'basis, a greater -shortage
Wotild result in the next few years.
Figures presented by the various
speakers showed that the reduction in
cotton acreage this year ranged from
.0 'to :5 per eest. due to the acreage
reduction campaign of the National
Cotton Association, the ravages of tlie
4toll weevil and unfavorable wceather
The gevernment recognizes that the
industry faces a critical situation.
Presi(ent IlIarifing declared in a tele
phone me.;sage to the confeirence and
he assiur-ed the cotton grower's that

possible m-ay to cooperate with those

Louisiana, a ot ton planter, estimasuted
that cot on producers 'had lost aplrox

count rates, and that thils Paper
should be good as long as the thank's
assets permitted. C:ottoni at no time,
ho said, should sell ,beldw' 30 cents.
The Amier~can cotton crop is the
most wastefully handled- stale farm
product in the 'world, Hiarvie Jordan,
secretary of the association, declared.
"Uneconomic losses due to waste
and primitive practices in baling and
'handling the cotton crop," he said,
"wip~e out the full annual value of a
crop every ten years, according to
figures prepared by the United States
-bureau of markets. Those losses ag

Mr. Wannnamaker, In his address dc
clared that until cotton was recog

assets, arnd until it brought a pruofit
able price to the grower, every south

"W produced in 1920 only 13,197,
