Become a lawyer if you wish;
A doctor or a barber.
Against these not a single grudge
Doth mankind ever harbor.
Become a lanner or a clown—
Or even be a waiter.
But for the love of Pete, my son—
Don't be a legislator!

last week. And that uncovered a lot
of opposition which, until then, had
kept itself mow or less in hiding.
You see, there are some members of
the legislature who never have been

else attaining any prominence along

New Uses For Cotton Brings On
Optimistic Spirit In Industry
New York Exchange Told Of Recent
Development* Which Help
New York, March 27.—Important
developments in the creation of new
uses for cotton and the pronounced
improvement in the cotton manu
facturing Industry of this country
during the last two months were de
scribed by George A. Sloan, presi
dent of the Cotton Textile institute,
at a meeting of the New York Cot
Mr. Sloan spoke optimistically of
the results accomplished by the cot
ton manufacturing Industry, with
the co-operation of the United
States departments of agriculture
and commerce, in expanding the
consumption of cotton goods, and of
the effect of such activities.
Sales Volume Galas.
"The volume of sales of cotton
cloth since January 1,” said Mr
Sloan, "has been heavier than dur
ing the same period in any recent
year. These large sales have com
pletely changed the position of the
industry. While unfilled orders are
now approaching peak levels, stocks
on hand, the cause of concern only
a iew montns ago, nave diminished
to the lowest volume ever recorded.
On many classes of goods, stocks
have been /educed to the minimum
yardage on which current business
can be transacted.
“Notwithstanding this gratifying
expansion of business, the mills are
taking a conservative atltude re
garding production because of the
conviction throughout the Industry
that the recent favorable trend in
cotton textile should not be regard
ed as a genuine recovery until the
general business situation shows
further improvement. The excess
