Washington, D. C. Organitutlou el
a nutiouul system of rudio programs
through a broadcasters' association,
to give service such us press asso
ciations do for newspapers, was sug
gested by Secretary Hoover Monday
night in an address opening the third
uational radio conference.
The conference is attended by
representatives of all branches of the
industry and was called by Mr. Hoover
to consider the numerous problems of
radio development in tho I'nlted
States. The general sessions are open
to the public for presentation of any
problem involving the industry.
The addresses were broadcast
through a system of IS radio stations.
In presenting his views Secretary
Hoover reiterated his opposition to
any attempt to monopolize the air,
declaring that local broadcasting sta
tions were of first importance and
must not be driven from the field.
The secretary's suggested plan for
a national program association would
provide for a self-sustaining system of
inter-connection of radio broadcasting
stations and offering through those
stations the best the nation has in
music and entertainment.
"My proposition." Mr. Hoover said,
'is that the local station must be able
to bring to its listened every import
ant national event with regularity.
The local station must be able to bring
to Its listeners the greatest music and
entertainment of the nation, but far
beyond this it must be able to deliver
important pronouncements of public
;m-n. it must bring instantly to our
people a hundred and one matters of
national Interest. To this it must add
matters of local interest. This can
be accomplished only by regularly or
ganized inter connection on a national
basis, with nationally organized and
directed programs for some part of
the day In supplement to more local

WHEAT PRICE SETS
Wheat prices are soaring in all the
world markets and quotations ia the
Pacific Northwest are easily keeping
pace with the advances elsewhere.
Soft white wheat, the leading ex
port variety, was sold at the Portland
Merchants' Exchange Monday at 1.55
a bushel, a gain of a full 5 cents over
Saturday's bid price. Other offers at
the exchange averaged about 1 cent
over the close of last week. After
the session the demand continued
strong and there were sales in the
cash market of club at 1.52, or 4
nts better than Saturday; hard win
ter at 1.4S, a gain of 2 cents, and
western red at 11.47, a 3 ent advance.
These prices are the highest scored In
the local market this year.
The demand for wheat is practically
all for shipment to Europe. Mills are
making a few purchases, as they have
some European flour orders, mainly
from Germany, but the bulk of the
wheat trade is for export.
Farmers are taking advantage of
the high prices and are selling their
wheat freely at prices based on the
Portland market. The larger part ot
the selling has been In the Walla
Walla and Pendleton sections, where
over 1,500,000 bushels changed hands
in the last days. The buying flurry
took care of about a third of the crop
of the Walla Walla country, while in
the Pendieton district not over 40 per
cent of the crop remains In the farm
New York With the capture of a
rakish Hrilish steamer with ll.ooo
cases of whisky aboard, prohibition of
ficials Saturday claimed to have caus
ed the collapse of an Anglo-American
banker bootlegger alliance which iu
the last six months has flooded this
country with illicit liquor.

investigation, coast guurdsmeu seiz

has 110.000.000 behind its operation of
a four-ship fleet.
In addition to the prize capture
of the Britisher, four smaller craft
fleet motor boats that bring the
liquor from the rum fleet to the Long
Island and New Jersey shores were
taken. The capture included u half
hundred cases ot whisky. Fifteen
prisoners were made by the marine
One lone police boat, with lights
out, got three of the little craft off
the Koikaways single-handed. The
fourth was taken at Staten Island
while her crew was unloading whisky
on a dock.
A novel ruse was emp'ayed by the
federal agents to involve the crew
of the Frederick B. In a test of the
new treaty, which extends the an
cient three-mile limit to the disiauce
of an hour's sailing.
After banding the vess d's raster
1100,004 in cash and checks to make
a fat liquor purchase agreement bind
ing, agents asked for 25 "sample
cases" to take ashore at once. They
put the "stuff" uboard the fastest
speed boat they could get and raced
ashore in 42 minutes. This, assert tt..
agents, involves the bootleg ring in a
violation of the Anglo-American
Their race against time completed,
the agents pressed the coast guard
cutter Manhattan into the work. That
formidable armed little vessel steam

anchorage off the Statue of Liberty.

USE YOUR OWN MIND
T3 1.' MECCA NORTH'8 father, who
himself had Inherited his trails
from a Southern plantation UHaM tunl
a New England clergyman, always
told her, when she came to him as a

he grew up, she not iced bow con
spicuous by Its uhsence was that
quality In most people. One,- she hap
pened to make the remark Hint, If one
wanted to make a friend of a person,
the surest method was to get him to
do one a good turn. Within Hie week
ahe heard three of her friends repent
her bit of worldly wisdom, or get It off
aa their own. That, ahe decided, S
not using their own minds. Inn hers.
Rebecca chose the t'-,!,s she Hunted
to read for herself. When she went
to buy a hat she had her own opin

thought and observation.
"You look Just lovely in It," tho
aalealady might say; but If the crown
was too big for Rebecca's profile, alio
uaed her own mind In making her de
cision. Her friends' opinions, ns they mar
ried, were "what John thinks," and
their stnndards were "what Ik done."
Then the Continental railroad went
Into the hands of a receiver. Bebecca's
father succumbed to heart failure and
Rebecca and her live sisters were left
high and dry without u cent in their

were sold off and their clothes grew
