The administration's farm relief

Just what form his new aid will
take has not been , determined but
both President Coolidge and Secre
tary Jardine have reached the con
clusion that surplus crops present
one of the dominating problems of
agrculture and that some govern
mental step must be taken to afford
Tremendous pressure has been
brought to bear recently on the ad
ministration by the congressional
farm bloc and western agricultural
leaders to create a, federal commis
sion with powers to direct the dis
position of surplus farm, crops in a
way wheh would enable the produc

Heretofore the White House has
been silent on the subject, but after
the president had conferred with
Secretary Jardine, which vas the
culmination of a series of confer
ences between the two, It was dis
closed that the administration was
prepared to indorse conservative leg
islation fostering the sale of sarplus
crops in the export trade witn a
government commission as . a direct
The issue was brought to a head
a few hours before the departure for
Des Moines of the Iowa congression
al delegation, members of which
invited to attend a meeting there of
farmers and bankers to discuss
means of marketing the surplus corn
Representative Dickenson, repub
lican, Iowa, talked with Secretary
Jardine just before he left and it 13
understood that the agriculture sec
retary, who had come direct from
the White House, authorized the
Iowa representative to tell the farm
ers of that state that the administra
tion sympathized with .their difficul
ties and was prepared to support
some measure for handling the sur
plus crops provided it did not put
the government in a business and fix
Secretary Jardine, in laying the
foundation for the bill, plans to
follow the same course he pursued
in preparing the co-operative mark
eting bill when he called in co-oper
ative leaders for advice. He will in
vite farm leaders over the country
to offer suggestions.
At present, the secretary believes
that surplus crops can be handled
through the co-operative marketing
system with a government commis
sion as a guiding hand. He is giv
ing consideration to the proposal to
empower such a commission to de
clare "emergency periods," when
some particular farm crop is under
pressure and to. designate some
agency to handle it.
"Farmers through their own or
ganizations have a most powerful in
strument to control movement of
surplus crops into consumptive chan
nels," Mr. Jardine said.
"With the confidence I have in
the co-operative movement, . I have
always opposed government price
fixing, either direct or indirect, and
the handling of farm products by
government agencies with the most
certain feeling that ,a government
guarantee of this nature would eli
minate the one real incentive for
"After a thorough study of the
problem I have come to the conclu
sion that there may be legitimate
functions which a government board
or commission might render which
would encourage, rather than dis
courage, initiative on the part of
farmers along the broad lines I con
stantly and consistently have held
