SOUTHERN MACHINERY FOR
The Charlotte Observer predicts
that in the near future much machin
ery used in Southern cotton mills will
be made iu the South by Southern la
bor. "In times gone glimmering.”
says The Observer, "it was contended
that the Soujjl could not manufacture
its raw supplies of cotton for the same
reason now advanced that it cannot '
make its own machinery, viz.: it does
not have the skilled labor.' Rut the
native talent developed into the finest
class of skilled labor, and the same
thing is going to happen in the case
of manufacture of machinery to run
the factories of the South."
Iu this connect on The Observer
gives figures and data as compiled by
Commerce and Industry showing that
while Massachusetts and Rhode Is
land continue to lead the country in
tlie output of textile machinery,, there
are uow 14 machinery manufacturing
establishments in the South, these be
ing located in North Carolina. South
Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia. Ala
bama, Kentucky, Maryland and Vir
ginia. In all the States iu the Futon
reporting machinery manufacture.
North Carolina now ranks ninth. Due
to the fact that the Tar Heel State is
the leader in textiles in the South, it
is nothing but natural to presume
that the ranking of the States will
oon move up.
The discussion in Commerce and
Industry is conducted by George New
by and Walter Matherly. ami '\>hcy
quote authorities encouraghig this de
parture. They put in evidence that,
admitting the Southern advantages of
nearness to market and cheap fuel, the
New England manufacturers go on to
say that the necessary skilled labor is
lacking in the South. Labor on tex
tile machinery is highly skilled: the
workers must think in terms of ex
ceedingly fine measurement and the
prexent manufacturers say that such
skill cannot be developed : u a single
Feneration. Also the New England
. manufacturers xny that they must se
cure their raw material from the
Pittsburgh district. The Birmingham
district is not making the rolled shapes
needed at the present time.
“Admittedly these New England
manufacturers are prejudiced." argues
’ Commerce and Industry. "They prob
ably do net want to see the manufac
ture of textile machinery in the South.
As Mr. Edmonds point* out. New
England cotton manufacturers predict
ed. back in the eighties, that the South
could never succeed at cotton manufac
turing. But the Squth has succeed
ed. Mr. Edmonds’ suggestions that
the manufacture of textile machinery
may come into the Houthern States
. through tlic erection of branch plants
and through the acquirements of pat
ent* seem entirely feasible.”

! showing the following figures on Rus
sia’s trade with the United States in
1925; value of Russia's exports to
United States $11,000,090; value of
Russia’s imports from United States
These figures offer a chance for a
comparison with figures for the last
pre-war year, when the old order was
still established in Russia. In 1914
Russia sold goods worth $23,320,157
to the United States and bought from
the United States goods worth $31,-
Our purchases from Russia have
fallen off from $23,320,157 to sll,-

shown an astounding increase, jump
ing from $31,303,149 in 1914 to $102.-
000,000 in 1925. The total value of
our Russian trade this year, imports
and exports, is $113,000,000. The to
tal value of our Russian trade before
the war and before the revolution was
Prices arc higher now for the same
goods than they were in 1914, some
thing like 60 per cent, higher. The
volume of our total trade with Rus

prices. This still falls short by $25,-
