NEW YORK COTTON NEW YORK, Oct. -23. — (#) — Cotton futures declined 10 to 50 cents a bale today under moderate pressure of hedge selling and liq uidation influenced by reactions in the securities market. Selling was concentrated in December which showed widest losses. Traders believed actual opera tions of the government buying plan will start in a few days when selling forms for farmers have beerft* completed and distributed. Easiness in spot prices was partly attributed to increased ginnings and an acute storage problem will tend to force immediate sales of cotton. Spain was reported inquiring for 22,400 bales of American cotton for December and anuary ship ments, following two recent pur chases aggregating close to 50. 000 bales.

Oct. 23. — (K) — Motors led the stock market on a sizable retreat today with pivot-! als generally yielding fractions to more than 2 points. Selling cropped up after a mod erately active and sligh ly mixed opening but it lacked urgency un til the final hour when offerings expanded appreciably. There was little in the news to account for the stumble. Analysts inclined to blame liquidation main ly on the continued reluctance of the averages to penetrate the 7 year highs of July. Accounts also were trimmed on the advice of Some investment services which were either bearish or exceeding ly cautious for the near-term, giv ing as their reasons indefinite e'ection trends and lack of much important war inspiration.
