PREDICTS COTTON WILL BE SCARCE British Expert Says Supply Next Ten Years Will Be Threatened Blackpool. Eng., Dec. 12.—Pro fessor John A. Todd, one of the British delegates to the World Cot ton Conference at New Orleans, in October last, told the Textile Insti tute the other day that the world's supply of cotton for the next 10 years was seriously threatened. He saw indications that the scarcity of cotton would increase as the world capacity to consume it returned to normal. Professor Todd said the first step to be taken should be to assure the grower of a reasonable price to cover the cost of production and to re ward him adequately for growing Improved cotton. He pointed out that the present system of market ing did not encourage the production of better cotton and insisted that the British government might well do a great deal more than this to extend the cotton industry. He pleaded for rigorous economy in consumption. The American cotton crop, said the Professor, was the limiting factor in the world's supply. This crop had developed an extreme undesirable see-saw movement of acreage, crops and prices. There had been five bad crops in succession with high prices accentuated by world infla tion. Before the war, said the speaker, a large part of the American grow ers were on a small margin of pro fit and when prices did not #ay they reduced their acreage. This oe curred during the war and the acre age then lost had not since been re covered. American acreage was re duced in 1919 and, owing to bad weather, this year's was "a disas trous failure and a calamity."

FRIDAY EVENING, result was that prices had been forced up to a very high level. Europe and Asia are without stocks of cotton g*>ods, said the Pro fessor. The amount of cotton which the world's mills could spin and weave is now restricted by destruc tion of machinery in the devastated regions of Europe and restriction of the hours of labor but these con ditions would not be permanent. One thing which alarmed him was the enormous development of the use of motor cars in America with a consequent demand for 500,000 bales of staple cotton for fabrics in tires. This demand existed at a time when the whole world supply of staple cotton, he said, had been re duced to 1,500,000 balesi Motor Bandits Steal S9O Worth of Ham and Eggs From Butcher Philadelphia, Dec. 12. —Three mo tor bandits are held to-day on .charges of stealing S9O worth of ham and eggs from a butcher's window.

A fourth, carrying a suitcase of breakfast, also was arrested. An hour after the robbery Patrol man Reading saw a young negro with a heavy suitcase. The police man examined the bag and found that it was full of eggs and pieces of ham. The negro was arrested. After the prisoner had been ques tioned, Detective Fairstein and sev eral policemen went to another street and say three negroes in a room cooking a meal of ham and eggs into three shares.

I„ Dee. 12.—Stanley Simon, aged 19, accidentally killed himself while trying to solve a prob lem in the use of a revolver which arose in a short story he was writing, according to Coroner Wilbur South ard, who conducted an inquest. Simon was found dead beneath a mirror. H. S. Simon, his uncle, tes tified that a magazine had returned a short story written by his nephew with the request for more action in it. This brought up a question con cerning the method of using a re volver. The uncle told .him of a sit uation described in a magazine, got his own revolver, unloaded it, allow ed Simon to handle it. Later he re loaded It and put it away. After the body was found, the magazine was discovered on a table open at the story mentioned by the uncle. It is presumed that the young man, after his uncle and aunt had left the house, got the revolver and, not knowing that the cartridges had been replaced, pulled the trigger.

Becoming over heated, the smelter ignited floor timbers and soon the walls were ablaze.
