iTerbert Hoover Points Out That If
Action Is Xot Taken Soon Both
Farmers and Public May
4 Suffer Serious JLosses.
WASHINGTON-, July 10. A Senate
agreement to vote on President Wil
son's food control bill on July 21, five
weeks after Its submission to Con
gress as an urgent war measure, was
followed today by issuance from the
"White House of a detailed report by
Herbert Hoover, declaring that both
the farmers and the public are threa
tened with serious losses unless food
control authority Is given quickly to
the Federal Government.
Democratic Senators obtained the
agreement for a vote only after they
had consented to strip the bill of some
of its more drastic features, including
the stringent prohibition provisions.
So far-reaching was the revision de
manded, in fact, that all-day confer
ences of the Democratic steering com
mittee and the agriculture committee
resulted in presentation of a substi
tute for the entire measure.
Administration Bill Followed.
There was no expression of opinion
from the "White House regarding the
provisions of the sub-bill, but it is
expected to be agreeable to the Presi
dent, in the main. It follows general
ly the lines of the Administration bill
as originally introduced with power
to control other industries besides food
and fuel eliminated. It would prohibit
manufacture of distilled liquors, with
out provision for Government purchase
of existing stocks and would place in
the President's hands the power and
responsibility to decide whether pro
hibition shall be extended to beer and
Neither was any comment on TVIr.
Hoover's report available at the White
House., but the fact of its publication
at this time was regarded as another
evidence of President Wilson's disap
pointment over the failure of Congress
to act. He repeatedly has sought to
impress upon leaders the importance of
quick enactment of the legislation and
was particularly anxious that the food
programme be complete by July L.
Senate Delays Legislation.
Any plan which can 'he acted on
quickly provided it embodies the ele
mentary principles of the Administra
tion programme is expected to have
White House support. The control bill
now has been before the Senate more
than two weeks and the food survey
bill, another Administration measure.
has been held up in conference since
early in June. ........
With the whole legislative situation
upset in the Senate, the leaders ex
pressed doubt tonight whether action
can be taken under any circumstances
before Saturday of next week, the date
set for the vote. The substitute bill,
drawn by Chairman Gore of the agri
culture committee, was taken up by
the committee as soon as It was sub
mi t ted. and some progress made in its
consideration. While the committee is
continuing its work, the Senate will
debate general features of the legislation.
Senator Chamberlain, who hag had
charge of the bill, obtained the agree
ment for a vote, stubbornly denied
Jieretofore by the opposition, after he
had given assurances of radical revi
ion. Later he withdrew a motion
filed yesterday proposing to invoke for
the first time in the Senate the cloture
Food, Peed and Fuel Chief Items,
The Gore substitute provides that the
Government control proposed shall be
limited to foodstuffs, feed and fuel,
the original purposes of the legislation,
and not include steel, iron, cotton and
many other products added during
congressional consideration. It would
authorize Federal requisitioning and
operation of coal mines, limit Federal
licensing to concerns engaged in
.nandnng or producing foodstuffs or
fuel, authorize Federal purchase and
sale at "reasonable" prices of food
stuffs and fuel, fix a guaranteed mini
mum price of $1.50 a bushel for wheat
and create a salaried board of food
administration, subject to Senate con
The prohibition section of the sub'
stitute would forbid manufacture, im
portation or exportation of distilled
beverages during the war, and would
authorize their commandeering by the
Government, "if necessary" to obtain
Industrial alcohol. The President
would be authorized to limit or pro
hibit manufacture of malt, fermented
and vinous beverages.
Leaders tonight expressed confidence
that some such a compromise provl
sion would be adopted in lieu of the
Senate prohibition sections and the so
called Smoot amendment which is un
satisfactory to both wets and drys.
Minimum for Wheat fl.50.
The agriculture committee today
tentatively approved several section,
of the substitute, including the pro
vision to fix a guaranteed minimum
price of $1.50 for wheat producers and
will continue work, tomorrow.
Agreement for a final vote on th
legislation July 21 and withdrawal o
the cloture motion which was to com
to a vote tomorrow with private poll
indicating its defeat, came after virtu
ally every Senator became convinced
that the bill could not be passed with
out substantial revision. Senator
Ixdge, acting Republican leader, and
Senator Simmons, a Democrat and
chairman of the finance cpmmlttee,
made vigorous speeches attacking the
general scope of the measure and its
effect upon business.
It was with the understanding dras
tic modification and limitation of the
legislation was in preparation that

SEATTLE, July 10. Dr. Henry Suz
zalo, president of the State Council of
Defense, after a conference with Insur
ance men and owners of grain fields
regarding threats of Itinerant laborers
to burn wheat fields in Eastern Wash
ington, issued a statement today in
which he declared most vigorous meas
ures would be taken to repress incen
diarism. He said: !
"In dollars and cents a fire this year
means double or treble the average
loss, because of the high .price of
wheat. Wheat burned cannot be re
placed. This year, too, there Is a sinis
ter element that must be reckoned
with those who deliberately would
destroy. This element can and must be

bending every effort toward combat
ing both the fires and the destruction.
Many Deputies Proposed.
"The council is working to make
scores of men in each county Deputy
Sheriffs plain-clothes officers of the
law who will be ready, like the min
ute men of Revolutionary days, to
spring upon the lawless those who
would destroy. With the farmers' help,
so complete will this organization be
that no man can hope vo set fire to
grain and escape. Once he is caught
the law will do him the Justice he de
serves." Frank Waterhouse, chairman of the
Washington State Harvesters League,
said that assurances had been received
from the state that harvesters Rent into
the country would be protected, and
the league would resume its activities,
temporarily suspended because of
thteats by itinerant laborers said to be
members of the Industrial Workers of
the World. Mr, Waterhouse continued:
Livlns Condition Improved,
"Lacking definite official assurances
that workers would not be Interfered
with, the Washington State Harvesters'
League could not and would not en
courage people to go into the orchards
or grain fields. Now, however, that
objection has been overcome and we
will once more give the people of the
state an opportunity to enlist harvest
Commencing next month, many
thousands of men. women and children
can be put to work in Eastern Wash
ington orchards. We are taking steps
to see that the living conditions in the
orchards this year are better than they
have ever been before, as we expect
much hig: r order of labor than has
previously been at the disposal of the
growers. Representatives of the league
are actively at work among the
orchards and we are receiving daily
reports that the growers are making
arrangements to provide every reason

WASHINGTON. July 10. A section
of the Administration's trading with
the enemy bill making it unlawful to
mail letters, pictures, maps and similar
articles to enemy countries was
stricken from the measure in the House
today. Republican Leader Mann and
Representative Gard (Dem.), of Ohio,
led the fight against the provision. Mr.
tiard declared the espionage law al
ready sufficiently provides against use
of the mails by spies and that it would
be unwise to inflict unnecessary hard
ships on persons In the United States
having relatives in Germany or her
allied countries with whom they desire
to communicate innocently.
The House also struck out on Mr.
Mann's motion a provision empowering
the President to designate all natives
of enemy countries as "alien enemies."
A substitute was adopted providing
that such designation shall be given
citizens or subjects of enemy countries.
The debate brought out a condemna
tion of spy scares by Mr. Mann and a
speech by Representative Walsh, of
Massachusetts, on the general sub

the public Information committee as a
