of 1 percent from the December total of 11,531,00r long tons
and a decrease of 29 percent from the 194' monthly average of
13,655,000 long tons. At tne same time the value of water-borne
foreign trade declined from S1,301.0 million in December to
51,229.1 million in January which also represented a decline of
5 percent from the 1347 monthly average of $1,287.9 million.

Prom December to January combined export-import shipments on
dry cargo vessels, representing 74 percent of the total foreign
trade tonnage, fell off 12 percent and 6 percent in shipping
weight and value, respectively, from 8,219,000 long tons at
31,245.0 million to 7,206,000 long tons at $1,16".3 million.
Although January witnessed a decline in tne tonnage of tanker

tons the previous month," there was an increase of 11 percent in
the value of these shipments from ',.8 million to $61.7 million.

The shipping weight of both exports and imports during Janu-
are followed the general pattern as exports at 5,972,000 long
tons and imports at 3,952,000 long tons represented a drop of 12
percent in each case. The value of January exports and imports
also declined to 8811.3 million and $417.8 million, respectively,
5 percent and percent below the December value figures.

Atlantic Coast Ports.-During January the foreign commerce of all
Atlantic Coast seaports amounted to 6,858,000 lonr tons valued at
1882.8 million or 70 percent of the shipping weight and '2 per-
cent of the value of the total foreign trade of the United States.
This represented decreases in shipping weight and value of 11
percent and 8 percent, respectively, from the trade during Decem-
ber 1947 and decreases in shipping weight and value of 16 percent
and 5 percent, respectively, from the 1947 monthly average of

million), Baltimore for 1,448,000 long tons ( 52.3 million), and
Philadelphia for 1,010,000 long tons (t58,0 million).

exports and imports during January or 1,954,000 long tons (8218.6
million) was handled in Gulf Ports. Foreign water-borne commerce
in this area was 3 percent heavier than in December 1947 but 11
percent less than the 1947 monthly average of 2,468,000 long tons.
Exports mounted to 1,522,000 long tons valued at 1180.7 million,
as imports reached 432,000 long tons valued at 337.9 million.

Coast ports decreased from 817,000 long tons in December 1947 to
769,000 long tons in January, which represented a drop of 19 per-
cent from the 1947 monthly average of 944,000 long tons, the value
