Washington, D. C Sydney Ander
son, representative of Minnesota and
head of the National Wheat council,
disc ussed the wheat solution at some
length with President Coolidge Satur
day and urged the necessity of using
the flexible provision of the tariff law
to provide the American wheat grow
er additional protection against Cana
dian grain. He announced immediate
ly afterward that he would urge the
matter before the tariff commission
early this week.
He pointed out the power of the
executive under the law to raise or
lower duties 50 per cent of the fixed j
rate if deemed in the interest of
American producers. The duty on
wheat being 30 cents a bushel, he re
minded the president that without call
ing congress in session the rate could
be increased to 45 cents.
Canadian wheat Is now being sold
in Minneapolis in spite of the tariff.
Mr. Anderson said he had been ad
vised, and that being the case, the
first move should be to protect the
American grower to the limit before
taking any steps to stabilize the
domestic market. He said it looked
to him like poor business to employ
methods to help American producers
without at the same time doing some
thing to prevent the dumping of large
quantities of the foreign wheat in this
country in competition at the more
advantageous prices. If Canadian
growers can compete now, he pointed
out, improved conditions in this coun
try certainly would do nothing less
than to increase the availability of do
mestic markets to the foreign product.
Representative Anderson declared
his opposition to any price-fixing
plan but did not commit himself on
any of the other stabilization pro
posals, of which there are many, ex
cept to indicate that they did not im
press him deeply. He let it be known
that in his study of the grain situa
tion in connection with his activities
on the wheat council he was convinc
ed that rapid improvement in the
wheat market is near. He asserted
the conviction that in the end it will
develop that this country actually lias
no surplus of millable wheat.
The question of readjustment of
acreage in the sowing of the next
crop was discussed with the president
and was agreed upon as one of the
solutions, which of course could not
be a help to the producers of this
year's crop. He said after leaving the
White House there was no (Ioh.h hat
with acreage today on the five year
average before the war there would
be no complaint whatsoever now re
garding the wheat situation.
The latter statement Is understood
to have referred to the figures of
government statisticians showing that
while 14 states decreased wheat acre
age very considerably in 1923. the
average planting for the United States
as a whole was 13,744,000 acres great
