COTTON
NEW YORK COTTON
NEW YORK, May 7—(IP)—Cot
ton futures gained $1.55 to $2.35
a bale over the previous close in
active dealings today.
Best prices were realized near
the close as heavy trade buying
and short covering met limited
offerings. The tightening spot cot
ton supply and the scheduled
opening of bids late today by the
government on 25,000 bales of cot
ton for UNRRA strengthened the
market.
Revised private cotton acreage
reports indicated plantings at 18
percent over last year, to about
21.450.000 acres as against 18,190,
000 planted last year. The Depart
ment of agriculture set a goal
for the 1947 crop of 23,000.000
acres.
Futures closed $1.55 to $2.35 a
bale higher than the previous close.

The rail group quietly slid to a
new average low for the year in
the bond market today.

a month, the carriers ended with
losses running to a point or so
outweighting small gains.

while utilities leaned lower.

alleled the stock division, where
turnover was slack and prices
moved uncertainly lower.
A number of carriers responded
easily to light buying, with in
vestors tempted by what some
brokers termed the bargain prices
quieted.

Eastern Illinois incomes at 30 3-4,
