Private cabies reported that German spinners would reducc tholr worklng time by 20 per cent., and there vere reports that Carolina spinners -vocld ehut down, while the Southern *elllnar here was belleved by many to be ngainst actual cctton. Further showerB and continued low temperature- are looked for to-nlght In thu Eattern belt, but the Western belt forecast was for falr and warmer weather.
