WASHINGTON, March 21.?Thc nn
? onncement of a complete scale of
rev/ steel prices at the Industrial
Board headr-uartcrs late to-day indi
cated that a conference between mem
bere of tho board and Attorney Gen?
eral Palmer had developed nothing
that would interfero with the govern
ment's price stabilization programme.
In approving the schedules submit?
ted by the etcel men the board, accord?
ing to a statement issued to-night,
adopted a poliry to bc followed in
agrecnicnts with produccrs of other
basic commodities. This policy.it was
said, is to strike a balance that "while
calling sooncr or later for some sacri
fice or adjustment on tho part of all
yet will not subject any of these in?
terests to undue hardship."
Judge E. H. Gary, of the United
States Steel Corporation and chairman
of the committee representing the
American Iron and Steel Institute,
which conferred with the board, in a
, statement containing thc announce?
ment of tho new prices, said that the
r<*te3 were agreed upon with a view
?o bringing about a revival and stabil?
ization of business through prices
favorable to the consuming public and
yet yiclding a moderate and reason
able return to investors in tho in?
dustry. He expressed thc belief that
the new prices would not disturb wage
rates or interfere with wage agree
ments.

The Boards Statement
The statement issued by the Indus?
trial Board follows:
"In giving its approval of the
schedule of prices just decided
upon for the principal articles of
?ron and steel, the Industrial Board
of the Department of Commerce, carry
ing out the purpose for which it was
created, believes that a level has been
? reached below which the public should
r.ct expect to buy during tho current
, <-ar. The purpose of the board is to
ng about such a lower level of prices
as will effect stabilitv and stimulate
'trade to the end that business and in
.dustry can proceed nnd build up with
'?onfidence and provide maximum em?
ployment.
"In its effort to effect cooperation
between thc government, representing
'he public, and capital and labor it
has in view a due and just regard for
' all of these interests, and thcreforo in
-giving its approval to these prices and
others which it will now consider im?
mediately it will endeavor to strike a
balance which, while calling sooncr or
iater for some sacrilice or adjustments
on the part of all, yet will not subject
nny of these interests to undue hard?
ship.
. "The board is asking industry to co
operate in taking the tirst stop and
voluntarily make temporary sacrifices
jn tho interest of all, and has asked the
ron and steel industry, because of its
fundamental importance, to be the first
to act, and the board is highly gratified
with tho spirit in which it has re
sponded.
"H is fully understood and expected
'nat the present wage rates or agree
nwnta will not be interfered with, the
aprrr'ivcd pricen having this in view.
"Ihe reduction in price lists may in

iniA a atttlement of the price qneatlon,
Ao offkjal nt tbe Oonaolidatc/I Steel
Corporaiivn, wbich waa organized re
ccntly to handle the foreign business
of the leading indcpendent steel com?
panies, said yesterday that important
inquirica had been received from
South American countries, the Par East
and practically all the so-called neu
tral countries of Europe. India alone,
he stated, was in the American mar?
ket for approximately 800,000 tons of
steel to cover its J i>20, 1921 and 1922
requirements.
E. A. S. Clarke, president, and his
associato officers had their busiest day
yesterday since the organization of
the new export combme. They r
ported a heavy increase in inquiries
for orders of foreign origin. Mr. Clarke
sails to-day for Europe.
Representatives of the building trade
did not take the same optimistic view
of the future as the steel men did.
They expressed the opinion that
prices would havo to drop still lower
before there would be any appreciable
increase in buying from that source.
They argued that the building con?
struction companies could not afford
even the reduccd prices for steel so
long ns their operating costs continued
as high as at present.
Metals
Lead Shows Weakness
and Other Metals Steady
in Dull Market
In the absenco of demand the price
of lead shows marked weakness, some
offerings having been made in this mar?
ket yesterday at 5.20 cents a pound,
which is 5 points bclow the price
quoted by the American Smelting and
Relining Company. In St. Louis the
market is as low ns 4.90 cents a pound.
The. spelter market is quiet and
steady, with no change in price, while
the copper market also remains un?
changed because of the lack of demand.
The large scllcrs are still quoting 15
cents a pound for the metal, while the
small interests are offering copper at
14 5-8 to 14 8-4 cents a pound. There
is, however. very little business being
booked at these prieos.
American Potash Now
Available for Export
Seocks Said To Be in Excess of
Quantities Domestic Users
Will Buy
Lack of domestic demand for Amer?
ican potash has left fairly large stocks
of the product in the hands of the
manufacturers in thia country, and
aa a consequence they are to-day in a
position to sell to foreign buyers.
Eugene Suter, head of a large chemi
cal export concern, is enthusiastic over
the possibiiity of selling American
made potash abroad.
''The progress of the American pot?
ash industry," he said yesterday, "has
been so rapid that this country ia actu
ally in a position to export potash
salts in cargo lots at short notice.
"The domestic demand for this
spring fell somewhat short of expeeta
tions because of the efforts of tho
plan ter a in the cotton belt to reduce
their acreage for the next crop by
about 25 per cent. There is at pres?
ent enougn potash in this country to
take care of the requirements for next
fall's business so that little or no
foreign potash need be imported into
this country for some time to come.
"Whether or not the domestic fer
tilizer industry will be ablc to com
pete in price with tho Alsatian and
German potash in six or eight months
from now remains to be seen. This
may be entirely possible for some of
the domestic plants that are advan
tageously located and which work at
a low cost of production. Some works
in California and Nebraska, however,
have recently discontinued the produc?
tion of potash.
"One of the most hopeful signa for
the growth of American potash ex?
ports is tho inquiry which comes reg?
ularly from foreign countries. I be- ]
Ueve that a good foreign trade in this
product could be developed if ocean i
freight rates were brought down to a '
more reasonable level."

Freight Difjficulties Hold
Up Export Business
in Chemicals
There is much dissatisfaction among
chemical exporters over the difficulty
of obtaining satisfactory quotations
on freight rates. This has resulted,
in the loss of some large orders. One
of them on Thurseday rejected a $35,- ?
000 order for a certain chemical tol
be shipped abroad because he could;
not get a quotation on ocean space ?
that would permit tho shipment. A
few hours after hc cabled his rejec- j
tion of the order a satisfactory freight
rate was offered him and the exporter
then was forccd into the position of
cabling his fooeign customer that he
would accept his offer.
The harbor strike has tied up large
quantities of chemicals for export.;
Much of this material is now lying
on the New Jersey docks, while the
producta that are subject to detoriora
tion are held in freight cars, and dc
nuirragc is said lo be cating up of
profits.
Citrie Acid Wanted for
"Soft Diinks" Is Scarce
A marked shortage of citrlc acid cx
istfl in the American market, owing to
the inability or imporlera to obtain
sumcient quantities from Italy, The
price of the acid is hitfb and tonnage
from Europe has boen lack ing. Mean
time the apring demands are increas?

Buyers of Woollen Goods
Put Quality Before Price
Mills Are Reported Swamped
With Orders for Fall
Flannels
Mills producing high grade woollen
goods for next fall report more of a
demand for these fabrics from the
manufacturers of men's clothing than
ever before. In fact, some of thc
makers of medium prices clothing have
thia season for the first time visited
woollen selling agents who cater to
the highest class trade. There is a
distinet trend to place quality before
price. j
A promincnt clothing manufacturer
said yesterday that his lirm believed >
that the average suit sold in the retail
stores next fall would be priced at ''?
something above $40, and this despite
the fact that woollen goods can be
bought cheaper now than those which '
went into last falPs clothing.
More orders for flannels for men's
wear next fall have been secured than !
thc trade can handle. This, it is said, j
is the reason for the trimming of
flannel orders by the American Woollen !
Company, Parker, Wilder & Co. and |
other large sellers of this cloth. Blue, i
green and brown are the most wanted
colors. One explanation of the Ameri
can's cutting down on flannel orders is
that by trimming these orders thc
mills can probably force the purchase
of other materials, and so operate other
looms that are not suitable to thc pro- ,
duction of flannels.
While many selling agents for
woollen mills report that thev have j
sold the production of their mills on
fall goods for the men's wear trade
for many months to come, manufac?
turers of clothing have by no means
filled their entire requirements in
cloth. The market has not reached a
point of stabilization sufficient to in
fluence the clothing makers to buy all
that they will need for next fall, "it is I
said, and there is much more business
coming in the near future.
Pears that worsted goods, because of i
their relatively high price compared !
with wollens, would not sell well this
year appear to be unfounded. Those ;
who know fabrics know that a worsted i
cloth will give moro wear than a wool- !
len cloth. That, it is said, ia the rea?
son that many clothing manufacturers
have increased their orders for wors?
ted within the last few days. Several i
of tho leading clothing makers, it is
said, have become convinced that as I
a reaction against the poor wearing !
Jabrics necessarily put out. during the j
war, the conauming public will de?
mand the ultimate in wear in clothintr !
next fall. * !

mand.
"The new clip situation is without
material change. Some conaignments

War on Unscrupulous
Buyers Is Declared
Associated Dress Industries Says
Praetiee of Unjust Cancel
lation Must End
War has been declared upon im
scrupulous buyers who operato in th<?
wholsesale market for women's ap
parel. The vigilanco committee of the
Associnted Dress Industries of Amer?
ica yesterday made known its inten
tion to place- an immediate check
upon buyers whoso methods of doing
business are questionable, and particu
larly those who indulgo in unjust can
cellations. The following statement
was issued:
"In the course of the vear there are
hundreds of thousands of dollar*'
worth of merchandiso bought only to
be cancelled at n later date. This must
be stopped. An order placed must
romain an order and cancollation is
uncalled for and unjustified unless the
order is not filled as per specifica
tions."
David N. Mosessohn, executive. di- :
rector of this national trade body,;
said: "There is no room in New York '
or any other market for that matter,
for the unscrupulous buyer, particu
larly the unscrupulous resident buyer.
A buyer who is found guilty on more
than one charge of illegal practice will I
find the showrooms of the dress manu- '
facturers closed to him and will stand j
a good chance of being ostracized from
tho women's apparel industry of the I
country through the joint eooperation j
of other trade bodies with the As- I
sociated Dress Industries of America.
"The legitimate resident buyer is an
asset to the industry and is ready to
work with us to st.amp out the evils !
in the industry, and wo are with thc
responsible buyer because he is a fac?
tor in the trade and worthy of respect
?but the other kind must and will be
eliminated."

Novelty Silk Goods Still]
Hold Buyers' Attention;
Haw Silk Higher
Some of tho silk manufacturers
booked n goodly number of orders yes?
terday, but with most of them ihe day
was a relatively quiet one. The atten?
tion of tho few buyers who visited the
salosrooms cent red 0n the so-called
novelty v.cavcs, and it was reported
that merchantn from the smallcr citics
of tho United States had placed what
were deemed to be remarkably large
orders. Manufacturers of plain'fabrics
Beemed to be doing only fairly, but
some who depend upon tiie cutting-up
dress trade frankly admittcd that goods
were being moved bv sacrlficing
prices. Displaya of fall shades are in?
creasing. and although a few of thc
leading houses have taken quite large
orders from Canadian merchants
trade hi autumn styles aa vet Iihh not
developed with much show of enthu
aiaam.
Japanese raw silk, which was in ac
tiva demand, advanced 10 cents a
pound, and the Chinese grades also
were said to be in better call. The
Japanese reclcr.i now visiting the
United States were credited with hav
ing atatnd that present prices for thoir
products do not allow of room for
profits, Importers who formerly did
a thriving business in Italian raw silk
reported thaf they expected to see some
of this material in thi' American mar?
ket. the coming summer, The Italian
government, which has held all avail
abla Huppliea at tho prohibitivn prico
of $11 u pound. will rallnqulah control
of tbe raw allk after May 81. Thia
will tend to incrnaso compctition, which
operation will work to tho advango of
Amoncan conaumqrs.
Finds Yankees Flexihle in
Making Goods for Export
Buyer for Big London Store, After Vistiing Mann
facturing Centres, Says This Country Is Ready
to Make Things Wanted iu Quantities Abroad
AMERICAN manufacturers are
not stubborn. E. 11. Aird, repre
scntative of Harrod's, Ltd., the
large London retail establishment,
who sails to-day for England, after
a canvass of manufacturing centres
in this country, said that he had
found them not only willing but
anxious to enter foreign trade and
ready to go so far as to make neces?
sary changes in their machinery to
produce goods according to specifica
tions of foreign buyers. W. D. Ager,
American agent for Horrod's, will
sail to-day on the Adriatic with Mr.
Airtl. They are carrying with them a*
great quantity of samples of Ameri?
can made goods to show to the store
executives in London.
"Before I left England a few months
ago," said Mr. Aird yesterday, "1 was
informed that I would find American
manufacturers unwilling to descrt
their fetish of standardization in or?
der to produce goods suitable for the
foreign market. 1 am sailing for
home to-morrow. and one of the first
things 1 shall tell my people upon ar
riving there, is that they are wrong
in this particular instance. During
my sojourn in this country I met lum
dreds of manufacturers of all kinds
of products. Except in a few cases I
have found them quite willing to pro?
duce the kind of goods we want. Of
course, Ihe embargo which the British
government has placed upon importa
tions prevented our placing any large
orders here, but as soon as the em- :
bargo is liftcd, we will bo ready to J
buy liberally iu American markets.
There is a great future in England
lor American made goods.
Merchandise Shortagc General
"Vou Americans have no idea of the
shortagc* of general merchandise now
in England. It is no longer a question
of trying to sell our goods over thc!
counters. The big question is to ob?
tain supplies to take caro ot' thc or?
ders that pour in upon us. Our sales
force has become slack, for there is
little or no incentive to make sales.
Thc sales people have become mere or?
der takers. During the war almost
every bit of machinery of any kind in
the country was devoted to war work.
It Avill take a year for us to get back
to anything like normal production of
civilian goods.
"We havo planned and confidently
expect to increase our business by
$5,000,000 this year, and no small per- i
centage of this increase will come i
i rom the men's and women's apparel!
scctions. When hostilities ceased thc
ban on cxtravap;ant clothing was lil'ted ;
and never before has there been so
much 'dressing' ur, there is in England
to-day. This year for thc first time
since the war we are to have those
great incentives to dress, tho Epsom
races, Ascot race week, the Henley rc
gatta and Cowes yachting week. These
are social functions of the highest or?
der and they will undoubtcdly stimu
late the demand for fine clothing
among the British and visiting public."
Soldiers Buy "Ready Mades"
Mr. Aird was asked what he thought
of the future of American made cloth?
ing in England.
"We have cieveioped the production
of women's ready made garments to a
high point," he replied, "and I don't
believe American manufacturers in
these lines can hope to compete with
the English faetories. In Harrod's we
make a lot of the women's clothes we
sell right in our own shops, and other
large retailers do the same. I think
there is a future, though, for men's
rcady made clothing. Tho sale of
ready made clothing for men is in?
creasing rapidly in England for two
reasons. Eirst, because the retailers
are pushing it through advertising and,
second, because in demobilization
many of the soldiers want their ci
vihp.n clothes quicfcly and can't wait
until they are turned out by a tailor.
Once used to wearing ready made
clothes these soldiers will con'tinue to
buy them. but I am not of the opinion
that ready made clothing will ever
supplant the tailored or 'bespoke'
clothing, as we call it over there, to
the cxtent that it has in America. Be?
fore tho war you could get a well
tailored suit made to measure in Lon?
don for about $15. and there was one
well known firm in Scotland that turned
out made to measure suits at $5 apiece.
Ready mades could not compete with
such prices, of course, but now that
cloth is so expensive, more so in Eng?
land than in America, the rcady made
suit is coming into its own.
"Prices have not dropped in Eng?
land to the extent that many people
thought they would when the fight ing
stopped, and we don't think they will
drop any further for another year.
V/ages are still high, and it is be
lieved that any attempt to reducc them
from the present level will lead to
serious trouble. Then, too, the vast
number of women who entered indus?
try during the war are rcluctant to
give up their positions. Many of them
were formerly in domestic service, but
they won't go back. They have tasted
good money and the things they can
buy with it and they want to keep .!
work in the faetories. Sealskin coats
were known as 'munitions workers'
overalls' during thc war. That's the
way they spend tlielr money. and as
long as these people spend thc high
wages they make thc retail stores will
prosper.''
Instead of showing improvement
lately, borrowing by business has de?
clined morc than ever. The most nota
blc aspect of the market is the scarcity
of notes bearing the names of- large
firms. One broker finds that the
largest, customers on his books are
borrowing only 50 to 25 per cent of
normal, and this seems to hold for
most of thc dealers in paper. Small
names are by no means plentiful, but
they have not ceasod borrowing to the
samo extent as the largcr businesses.
The dealers maintain that they could
sell perhaps three or more times as
many notes to banks if they had the
notes to sell.
lt is not primarily a question of
rates, either from thc side of the
borrowing business or from the side
of the banker, though the latter is
more interested. lt is simply that
business does not want to borrow thc
money. The banks have not been in?
terested greatly because thev have had
worries oT their own. Thc chief factor
all along has been thc neccssity thc
banks are under for taking the issues
of certificates of indebtcdness as they
came out every two weeks; and this
factor will continue to bc morc im?
portant until a month from now,
when thc Victory Loan will be floatcd"
The present local factor has been thc
turning of the tax payment checks by
the government.
The general rate for paper coniin
j ues at oVi per cent for four to six
month maturities. Occasionally, pa
.per with an cxceptionally good' name
j and short maturity goes for 5V*. per
'cent, and brokers suspect that they
could sell paper even of four months'
: maturity at that rate if they could
get a hold of really big names. Out
in Chicago a fair volume is stiil be?
ing sold at 5*4.
Thc demand for bank acceptances
fell off a great deal yesterday, not
withstanding that ihe ruling rate of
call money was only fl per cent, com
pared with (! per cent thc day before.
The comment of acccptance dealers
was that though the rate was lower
, money was not. easy by anv means'
; \estorday, for the first time 'in a Ion
while, one dealcr bought more bills
than hc sold.
Dealers are looking hopcfully for
\u TJi'SJ '"stalment of bills against
tho $50,000,000 Belgian crcdit to be
drawn. lt ls delayed now because
: batiKcrs here are waiting for the ar
! rival of thc Belgian Commission that
, is going to draw the bills.

Large New Bedford
Mills Shut Down
Head of Sharp Manut'aoturing
Company Says Cotton Yarn
Business ls Poor
Business News Bureau
Special Correspondence
NEW BEDFORD, March 21. Thc
big Sharp .Mills. with nearly 200,000
spindlcs and employing 1.000 opera
tives, shut down to-night for a week, I
which possibly will bc cxtonded to a
longer period of time, acording to an
ofticial bulletin posted to-tay. These
mills, which an* among the largest
yarn works in this part of \'ew Eng?
land. have been running on a cur
tailed schcdule for several weeks.
The following explanation was made
by Robert Schofield, superintendent of
the plant: "The management of the
Sharp Manufacturing r'ompany has de?
cided to keep its miils closed for a
week or morc, as market conditions do
not warrant their running. Just as
soon as business warrants their start?
ing again they will do so."
Early this week thc acquisition of
thc MacManus holdings in the Ilomc
Blcach and Dye Works of Pawtucket.
R. L, by the owncis of thc Sharp Mills
was announced.
Textiles
Colored Cotton Goods Are
Attracting More Atten?
tion in This Market
Lightcr buying of the rougber forms
of cotton goods, livclier trade in colored
fabrics and fairly good business in
bleached products were the principal
developments in yesterday's move
ments in drygoods. Prices for gray
goods were slightly lower than earlier
in thc week, and it was intimated that
some dealers who had bought goods for
speculation had taken their profits. In
thc fancy fabric division of the mar?
ket shirting material received consid
erable attention from buyers, and it
was reported that some good sixed or?
ders were placed. A few of the com?
mission house.; stated that it was ditii
cult to get full supplies of colored
yarns suitablc for weaving into high
grade shirtings.
Thc yarn trade in general was re?
ported to havo improved a little, but.
sellers agreed that business is by no
means satisfactory, and it was intimat?
ed that further curtailment of output
was likely unless business, as well as
prices, matcrially expanded. Buyers
of colored goods when placing orders
insist that shipments be made as
spcedily as possible, showing that
stocks in the hands of jobbers and:
manufacturers of finished garments
are light. Commission men asserted ,
that buyers havo been giving some in- I
dications that they believe prices are
as low as they will go.
New England manufacturers of ging- ;
hams are cngaged in a drive to stimu
late retail dealers' sales of that mate?
rial during the week of April 21-28. ;
Business in this product, as distin
guised from that of the Southern arti
cle, was said to be in excess of mill
outputs. Commission men said that
cxport orders continued to furnish a
fair volume of business to the cotton
trade in general. Hayti and other West
Indian islands were stated to be among
the most recent customers. Mill agents
manifested little concern over thc
break in sterling exchange, the embargo
imposcd by England on imports of cot?
ton goods having tomporarily curtailed
exports from the United States.

liiiMinii' Drags at Sale
Of (rovrrnmriit Wool
PHILADELPHIA, March 21?Bidding
dragged at thc final day of the gov
ernment's wejol auction here, manu?
facturers and dealers showing little in?
terest in thc offerings except when good
grades were placed on sale. Lack of
business by carpet mills, high prices
asked and the low grade of much of
the stock ofi'crcd were given as causes.
Tho fact that the British government
has reduced its price for wool 17 'a
per cent was also given by some who
attended the auction as one of the
causes for light sale: .
There were 1*1 lots offered, compris
ing about 4,300,000 pounds of greasy
carpel wool and 550,000 pounds of
scoirred carpet wool. Withdrawals were
heavy, amounting to 109 lots, totalling
2,456,800 pounds and representing 61
per cent of the offerings.
The largest buyor took 1,213,800
pounds. Another large buyer obtained
280,800 pounds. Two buyers took a
total of 133,258 pounds of white sining
combing China of 38 per cent shrink
age at 36 cents in thc grcase. Another
bought '17,;'ii)7 pounds of the same kind!
and same shrinkage at ."?:'> cents.
Things Argentina Buys
A list of articles contained in orders
sent to this country from the Buenos
Ayres store of Harrod's, Ltd., gives an

corsets, aluminum ware, wrapping pa?
per, writing paper, cardboard for mak?
ing boxes and subscriptions to leading
American trade papers.
"There is little or no market for
American made wearing apparel in
Argentina," said W. D. Ager, American
agent for Harrod's. Ltd., yesterday. "1
