The mar ket was firm in initial dealings on mill buying, but thereafter felt persistent pressure of New Orleans and commission house liquidation which gathered mo mentum towards the close. Some of the selling was of a yead end tax nature and realiz ing sales were also encouraged by the confusion over Washing ton developments on commodi ties and the uncertainty over the cotton export situation. Offer ings were absorbed principally through mill buying against tex tile sales, but trade support was not aggressive due to the ap proaching holiday lull in the tex tile industry. Army plans for purchase of American cotton for Japan and Korea remained vague, with some reports that offers might be sought before the holidays. Exporters thought that enact ment of the interim foreign aid bill would expedite French buy ing of American cotton. Futures closed 65 cents to $1 .25 a bale lower than the pre vious close.
