"Conditions responsible for the re

the bulletin states, "were .principally
weather influences consisting of earljr
frosts and recent heavy rains. Heavy
frosts occurring during the latter half
of October killed a majority of the
cotton plants, leaving very few to ma

rains have done some damage to tha
quality of the open cotton stlil un
picked by either beating It out on the
ground or causing k to stain on tha

Urge quantity of open cotton is ob

for the new revenue bill, Chairman
Green declared in announcing that tha

The $304,000,000 cut in revenue next

the committee to complete the drafting
of the tax reduction bill this week,
thus assuring early consideration by
the house soon after Congress con
venes December 7.
As agreed upon by the committee,
the bill Will provide for widespread
reductions in all income tax rates, in

of many of the excise and special
levies, repeal of the gift tax and pub
licity of income tax returns, and modi

minor changes will be confined almost

appoint such advisory boards and com

those who, in the opinion of the secre
