COTTON CONFERENCE AGREES
Washington.—Tare limited to 21
pounds composed of bagging weighing
two pounds a yard and ties weighing
46 pound* per bundle, including buck
les, was adopted as standard cover
ing for cotton bales at the gin by
cotton shippors and bagging manufac
turers In conference at the depart
ment of agriculture.
This action is regarded as a definite
atep In the direction toward dealing
In cotton on net weight basis Instead
of the present gross weight and Is the
result of agitation for the improve
ment of the quality and appearance
of the American cotton bale in Inter
national trade. As a result, an effort
•will be made by tho department to
have this type bale adopted as stan
dard for all of the cotton exchange*
of the world. At present tho tare tn
this country ranges from 18 pounds
In California to 30 pounds in Goorgla
qnrt South Carolina, and a score of
different type materials are used for
To assure the use of the standard
material, tho manufacturers agreed
not to manufacture any other kind of
material for stofck after 1925.
The question for patches for the
bale was not settled. The shippers
summed up their case as follows:
The shippers are seeking a patch
that is large enough to cover the sam
ple holes, say between 22 to 30 by 40
to 48 inches, weighing from J to I 1-2
pounds, which has a sufficent durabil
ity to stand the strain of compression
and which has a surface capable of
taking and holding markings, and
which can be bought at a jre*»onable
pile*. r .
The manufacturers contended:
"The supply of material Is an Im
portant factor and there is a question
as to whether a patch' described by
the shippers can be manufacture/! with
sufficient strength at a reasonable
price and several manufacturers ex
pressed a willingness to make sam
ples and submit them to the cotton
commute* la the department of agri
culture with -which to experiment."
J. M. Locke, chairman of the tare
committee of the Amerlcsdl Cotton
Shipper*, association ,of Muskogee,
Okla., told the committee that be
cause of the lack of a standard tare.
Importers and mills In Europe had to
sample the bale to determine the tare
and It was estimated that the samp
ling cost $500,000 annually.

STANDARD OIL PROFITS G OW
NET EARNINGS INCREABED
TWENTY-FIVE MILLION LAST
Shreveport, La. —Combined net earn
ings of the Standard Oil compnay of
New Jersey and its subsidiaries in
11)24 totaled $81,016,570, an Increase
of nearly f25,000,000 over 1923, Chair
man A. C. Bedford announced In his
annual report to stockholders.
SaUfs of petroleum products during
the year, he said, were the largest
in volume in the company's history,
and were reflected in an expansion of
more than $42000.000 in gross income '
to a total of $409,995,806. * !
After the payment of $13,998,103 in
preferred dividends, the company's
earnings were equivalent td\ $3.30, or
12.2 per cent on the common shares,
compared with $2.10 per share earned
"Results of te Standard Oil com
pany's natural "gas business and of
subsidiaries engaged In collateral
activities, Mr. Bedford explained, were
In 1924, as In previous years, more
satislfsctory thsn the results arising
from the oil business itself.
"Excessive competition, arising from
of crude and the
resnitant overaccumulatlon of finish
ed products which hss caused many
of these products to be forced upon
th* msrket at prices below their
value," he said, "has seriously mili
tated against the prosperity of the
petroleum Industry in the past tour
years. Better results should attend
our operations when the industry is
relieved of this problem."

FORD MAY BUY 400 SHIPS
DEAL, IF PUT THROUGH, WOULD
TAKE CONSIDERABLE TIME
Detroit. —Henry Ford will purchase
the 400 vessels of the United States
shipping board if the government will
fix what he considers a fair price:
The announcement was made by Mr.
Ford, following a conference with T.
V. O'Connor, chairman of the ship
O'Connor is quoted as asking Ford
to take over 200 ships In his original
suggestion. However, when Ford in
formed him that he would only buy
the ships to scrap them for junk,
O'Connor suggested that he buy all
400, as it would not cost much more
to construct dismantling apparatus to
handle the 400 ships than it would
th> lesser number. Font agreed to
this, saying that he might retain from
10 to 30 of the ships for use by Ford
If any ships were put in operation
by Ford, they would be reconditioned
and equipped aa oil burners the arti
Despite the tentative agreement, the
matter of the sale of the ships to
Ford will not be cleared up for several
months, it is estimated. The shipping
board has been wary of making any
agreement heretofore, as it felt if the
ships were sold abroad to be scrapped,
that promises might be broken and the
ships might reappear uhder foreign
flags in competition with American
"The ships were built during the
war when everybody was craiy," Ford
was quoted as saying. "Most of them
were thrown together in a great hurry.
They were for an emergency and con
sequently many of them were not
strongly built and some of the engines
put into them were pretty bad."
"We have already purcaaed three
vessels from the shipping board," he
added. "We took these three boats
for pioneering and we know their
limitations. Two of the boats are of
about 3,000 tons. The third, the East
Indian, is slightly larger and is now
being put into shape for service to
Denmark, which we hope will begin
about August 1."

THREE HONORED BY ROOSEVELT
Washington.—ln the east room of
the White House, President Coolidge
presented' medals awarded by the
Roosevelt Memorial association to
Governor Pinchot, of Pennsylvania.
George Bird Grlnnell, of New York,
and Miss Martha Berry, of Georgia.
The awards are made annually for dis
tinguished service in any of 10 fields
of endeavor. ,
Addressing Governor Pinchot, who
received the medal for his services In
behalf of conservation, President Cool
idge declared that "no American who
is familiar with the history of the
great movements Inaugurated by such
men as John Muir, Edward A. Bowers
and Secretary John W. Noble, and
later sponsored by President Roose
velt, for the preservation of our for
ests, bur waterpower and our mineral
wealth, will question the Justice of
"In the development of a policy
which became one of the most signi
ficant of Mr. Roosevelt's administra
tion," Mr. Coolidge told the governor,
"you were from first to his coun
sellor and helper." To his vision and
his power you added knowledge and
practical experience which was essen
tial. You have preached your gospel
eloquently and, in office and out of
office, have put it into action with an
effectiveness which- has rightly won
you the gratitude of your fellow Ameri
cans, of whiah this medal is a symbol."
On presenting the medal to Mr.
Grinnell, an editor and publisher, who
was honored for his work in promoting
outdoor life, the President recalled
that he had been with General Custe?
in the Black Hills and with Colonel
Ludlow in the Yellowstone, had lived
among the Indians, and that his study
of the language and customs of the
Blackfoot tribe, of which he is a mem
ber, are considered authoritative.
"Few had done so much as you,
none have more," added the
President, "to preserve vast areas of
picturesque wilderness for the eyes
of posterity in the simple majepty In
which you and your fellow pioneers
first beheld them. In the Yellowstone
Park you prevented the exploitation
and therefore, the destruction of the
natural beauties. The Glavier Nation
al Park is peculiarly your monument.
As editor for 35 years of a journal de
voted to outdoor life, you have done a
noteworthy service in bringing to th£
men and women of a hurried and har
