H I[ FiA COTTON IS
FORECAST BY MANY
Threat of Famine Seen by Authorities
by Time for Next Crop.
The threats of a cotton famine is
finding all sorts of conjecture about
the future price of cotton and many
authorities expect 30 cents cotton or
perhaps more, -this iwas the subject of
a cotton article in Thursday's- issue of
the New York Journal of Commerce.
The article stated that many of the
best posted men on the cotton situa
tion in /England and in this country
are seriously concerned over the gros
pect of inadequate suipplies of Ameri
can cotton to meet the world's neds.
'The official September crop estima
tion was 10,135,000 bales, although a
.few of the more optimistic cotton men,
it. wa-s. stated, hoped for ten and a
half, million. bales this year. Other
figures go to show that If Amerioa us,
es 6,500,000 'bales and sho'uld Europe
call for practically thie same amount
that will mdan over 12,000,000 bales
Wvill be in demand, according t9 the
number of bales in sight, the demand
will' .reduce the amount of American
cotton in tahe -world to around 2,250,
000 bales -by August 1, 1923. Then, it
continued the 1923 supply of cotton
'will- 4o1po .in with eiif 500,000 balek of
uxspin'cotton on Uctober-1, 1923, this
beiig 'the smallest reserve since Civil
War times..- -
