These factors are (1) the supply of the type in relation to the compeing types (2) the existence of an abnormally high or low demand for the type (3) the existence of a general or prolonged strike in the textile industry or the threat of a boycott from large scale buyers (4) the operations or a syndicate of buyers or sellers etc. [...] The physical conditions of humidity and temperature prevailing in the spinning room and the testing room are also given in the tables.5 (v) Remarks.—The results of the two previous sections are sumarised and discussed with special reference to waste percentages quality of yarn and seasonal variation in the fibre-properties and spinning perfomance of the cotton. [...] The accumulated results for several seasons provided just the kind of data required for solving the above-mentioned problem and the measure of success achieved together with the limitations of this method are discussed in another bulletin.* The fourth purpose served by these tests is to place in the hands of the trade detailed information regarding the standard cottons. [...] It has been customary in the past to give in each issue of this Bulletin full details of the machinery and the spinning technique employed in the spinning tests of the apparatus and the methods employed in the fibre and the yarn tests and of the standards of yarn strength and twist adopted at the Technological Laboratory. [...] On the other hand in view of the valuable information yielded by a knowledge of the degree of maturity of the cotton fibre maturity tests have been made on the standard cottons since the last season and these along with the tests for fibre length fibre weight per inch and fibre strength will be repeated in the following seasons.
