WEEKLY COTTON REVIEW

IliRhcnt Level* Show .Net <>nin? or

f By Associated 1'rcss. 1 i
NEW OHLEANS, April 7.? Wide ad
vances again were made by cotton here
last week, mainly on the strength of
the spot situation, lyowest levels were
recorded on the opening session, while
the highest levels were made in the
last half of the week. At no time was
the market nt a net decline, and high
est levels showed net gains of H'5 to
172 points. The close was to 137
points over the closing prlee? of the
preceding week. On Friday there was
a stiff reaction from the decline, but a
good part of the setback was recovered
on the closing session.
The continued eood demand for ac
tual cotton antl reports of an increased
inquiry for cotton goods, for both gov
ernment and civilian accounts, were
the mainstays of the rise which put
all months in the contract market, as
well as spot prices, to new hluh levels,
the highest ever known on futures, and
the highest in hr.lf a century on spots.
Crop news showed distinct improve
ment. without affecting values. The
main development in this direction wa?
the breaking "f the long drought in
Texas. The reaction Friday was partiy
1he natural sifter-effect of the Ion;:
rise. and was partly due to reports of
price-fixing and less favorable news,
but on the week end a more favorable
opinion of both features obtained.
This week the trade will have to di
gest a greatly increased tnas.t of crop
reports, and on Wednesday, the first of
the oliicial weekly reports on the crop
will be Issued by the Department of
Agriculture. Wnr news is bound to be
important, and the trade will be unable
to get very f.-?r away from develop
ments in the markets of the country
for finished cotton goods.
