MARKETS]

NEW YORK COTTON
NEW YORK, Oct. 9—yP)—Cotton
opened steady at an advance of 7
to 12 points on buying which ap
peared to be influenced by the
standard cloth statistics for Sep
tember, relatively steady Liverpool
cables and the possibility that con
structive developments might grow
out of the meeting of the Cotton
trade called for on Monday in New
Orleans to discuss measures for
stablizing the market.
There was very little southern
selling but the advance met some
realizing around 10.44 for the new
December and 10.74 for March. This
checked the upturn but prices held
steady and within a point or two
of the best at the end of the first
half hour. The standard statistics
for September showed a decrease of
11.4 per cent in stocks of cotton
orders on hand and an increase
of 26.1 per cent in unfilled orders
The market eased after the early
buying had been supplied under
selling which seemed to be tnflu
< .iced by weakness in the stock
market. New December sold off
from 10.44 to 10.32, or back to
about yesterday's closing quota
tions but the decline brought in
some additional buying and a rally
in stocks was followed by a bulge
which earned the price up to 10.42,
! r about 10 points net higher. Lat
er fluctuations were irregular with
the market at midday comparative
ly qviiet at net advances of 4 or
5 point.".
CHICAGO GRAIN
CHICAGO. Oct. 9—/P)— Grain
values underwent sudden setbacks
from an early advance today, but
soon steadied.-The downturns fol
I lowed announcement that incident
to stock market weakness United
States Steel shares had dropped to
new low record quotations for the
year.
Opening l-8c off to 7-8c up, Chi
cago wheat future deliveries fluc
tuated afterward at around yester
day's finish. Corn started un
changed to l-2c higher, reacted
sharply, anu then recovered.
NEW ORLEANS COTTON
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 9—<*»)—
Cotton opened somewhat firmer In
sympathy with better Liverpool
cables and because of a bullish view
of the September textile statistics
which showed sales sixty ?>crcent
in excess of current production.
First trades showed gains of 9 to
12 points.
The market continued to improve
after the start, the better feeling
being helped by a conference on
cotton prices to be held here Mon
day.
December traded up to 10 45 and
January to 10.53. or 12 to 3.63. yes
terdny’s close. Toward the end of
the first hour prices eased off 3 to
7 points from the top on realizing
but the undertone continued steady.
The market turned easier late in
the morning due mainly t» weak
ness in stocks and a brokerage
f. ilure on the New York Stock Ex
r' ange. As a result December
eased iff to 10.30 and January to
10.41. or 12 to 15 points down from
the highs which wiped out all the
early advance bringing the prices
back parallel with yesterday's close.
At noon the market was easy
and at the lows.

NEW YORK, Oct. 9—{/Pi— Mary
Garden arrived on the Bremen to
day. “quite frisky," as she express
ed it, atfer a summer on the R -era
during which she spent much time
swimming with the fishes and, to
quote her again, with no more on
than they had.
Miss Garden, long an advocate of
open air sun baths, said she felt
younger than ever. She dared any
one to say she didn't look younger
and there wasn't a whisper.
“On the fifteenth." she announc
ed, “I'm going to sing all over the
radio.” And she pronounced It
“raddio.” Someone asked if she had
learned that from former Governor
Alfred E. Smith.
"Does he say it that way?” she
asked. “What! He's been criticized
for It! Well, he's perfectly right
Hes laways right. He's a dear.”
After singing on the radio here
Miss Garden will go to the West
coast to take a voice test and find
out if she is equipped to star in a
movie opera. Then she'll go to Chi
cago for a little while end then
back to Prance, where she expects
to spend most of her time from
now on. She said she had giver
up the idea of becoming an Amer
ican citizen although she took out
her first papers five years ago.
“Now. there’s one miestion yor
haven’t asked.” she said. “You 'al
ways ask if I’m engaged. Well. I’m
not. and I don’t plan to be. I don’t
think there’s any use getting mar
ried when you have work to do. Of
course if a woman hasn’t any work
then I suppose she has to get r
husband to work for her.'1
