Reports from many parishes are to the effect that the freeze of last week was more se vere than early advics indicated and that the crop wiU be still further re duced as a result of 1L The freeze caught the cane still In a green condi tion and killed the bud practically throughout the belt, which means, of course, that, there will be no further Improvement In its condition. Many of the factories stopped grind ing to windrow the cane, a thing which has never been necessary before so early In the season. Fears are now. ex pressed that even the windrowed cane may deteriorate, owing to the fact that the toil is unusually dry. E. A. Rainold, who a few weeks ago estimated the probable Louisiana' pro duction at 275.000 tons, has lowered his estimate to 250,000 tons, and other sugar men, such as Ex F. Dickinson, ire en more pessimistic regarding the probable outcome. It is pointed out that thejeane was yielding very low in sugar. before the freeze, 100 pounds to the, ton being the most that the factories were able to obtain, and that this figure cannot now be in creased. Some estimates now place the probable outturn as low as 200,-000-tons. ; .The sugar plantations are being handicapped bj the severe shortage of labor existing ;in. Louisiana As a means of relieving this shortage Mayor Behrman has ordered the police to ar rest all idlers In the city and to re lease from the parish prison and the House of Detention all minor offend ers who are willing to work in the sugar belt. star-bulletTn'gives you TODAY'S NEWS TODAY CLARIFIED PRICE FIXED BY HOOVER PROTECT YOUR TEETH I K BORADENOP THE MILK OF MAGNESIA TOOTHPASTE HELPS TO CORRECT "ACID MOUTH" a con. at au Dice rroin do to the for cooling sodas and soft drink Developments of the current week in the Louisiana price situation, says Facts About Sugar for November 10, upon which the attention of sugar trade circles has been largely f ixe-i during the past fortnight, have been the decision of the food administra tion fixing the price at which Louis iana producers of direct consumption sugars will be permitted to sell their product and the subsequent action of the American Cane Growers' Associa tion in adopting resolutions of protest at a meeting in New Orleans on Tues day. The price fixed by tne food admin istration for direct consumption sugars is the same as that already set as the basic price for beet sugar, 7.25 cents, and that for Louisiana raw sugar is 6.35 cents. The following tel egram announcing the decision was sent by Food Administrator Hoover to all licenced producers in Louisi ana on November Z: "Under powers conferred by sec tion 5, food control act, I have deter mined that any sale of 1917 washed plantation, clarified, seconda.tjiftds or open-kettle sugars at a price In ex. cess of 17.23 per 100 pounds,' less 2 ped cent f. o. b. Ttfew Orleans, or raw sugar in excess of $6.35 per 100 pounds f. o. b. New Orleans, will give Manufacturers an unjust, unreason able and unfair nrnfit. Anv maIa mrto i after November 2 at greater price will be cause for revocation of license and suject you to penalties of the act." Receipt of the notification was im mediately followed by action on the Iart of the American Cane Growers' Association, the planters' organisa tion. A meeting of the cane growers and producers was called in New Or leans for November 6 to discuss the food administration's order and de termine upon a course of procedure.
