NEW COTTON^REGULATION
SmaU Holders Get a Ohance
to Borrow from Pool.
As a sequel to the discussion be?
tween the cotton loan committee and
the chairmen of the state committees
In Washington on December 14 th?
loan committee yesterday drew up a
supplemental letter of advice to the
state and local committees.
The new regulations sent out by
Secretary Holly provide for making
loans to holders of fewer than on?'
hundred bales of cotton, hitherto
named a.? the unit, provided would-be
.??mall borrowers combine their appli?
cations to make up at least one hun?
dred bales. No application, however,
may be on the basis of fewer than
twenty bales. Borrowers will be re?
quired to have their cotton actually
under cover in warehouses and not
simply in the custody of the ware
iiuthorities.
Arraafomeata will be made to de?
posit warehouse receipts and insur?
ance policies for cotton within tho
states of the borrowers so that de?
liveries of doearaeeta afaiaet sales of
cotton may be readily made. The lo?
cal and state committees will bo
charged with the responsibility of
vouching for the good character of
applicants for loans.
