Reduction of Ten Per Cent
Wanted to Hold Surplus
' Down To Normal, r
1 Washington. Chairman . Legge of
J the federal farm "board warned that
: unless wheat farmers ... reduce , their
acreage by 10 per cent and prevent
:'; another wheat surplus, the board will
be unable to help them get 'a fair
. price next year. ...
. , In a virtual ultimatum , to , wheat
growers, made in a letter to Governor
; George F. Shaf er of North" Dakota,
Legge explained the board will ,have
:'i 100,000,000 bushels of wheat on hand"
5 at the end of this year, and that
there is no hope of f dumping very,
I much on the export market. ..
' . The farm board chairman also de
, clared there is no hope for relief of
v congestion at terminal - markets with
in 60 days. He said "the . tendency
seems to be for the congestion to be
" come worse rather than better." This,
, he added, is due to rapid liquidation
; in other wheat-exporting countries
- Australia, Argentina and Canada ,
" which he said would go on, in his
opinion, at something below the level
of prices in this country; "no matter
to what basis our price , level went."
; . The present operations of the ata
bilizatiori corporation will undoubted
' ly result in its having upwards of
: 100,000,000 bushels of wheat on hand
''at the close of the present-season,
'. Legge said. .L":'- '; j-:-.. ,'""'
"If the .farmers are going ahead
trying to produce an additional sur
plus on the basis that some way. will
be able to take care of it on a fair
. price level another year, they are go
ing to be mistaken. i .'
"If they will cooperate, the stabiliz
ation corporation will be justified in
paying storage charges and carrying
this wheat for time in hope that a
crop shortage somewhere in the world
will give them an opportunity to nn
, load it. If, on the other hand, the
. farmers' attitude is to let George do
1 jt all, the , natural procedure would
eeem to be to dispose of this wheat
" the best- they could and write off the
loss,, but doing this would probably
, adversely affect the price of the 1930
crp-" -
' Legge wrote in response to a letter
from Shafer as to the basis of buying
i Wheat after . congestion at" terminal
markets is relieved; The chairman
pointed out that he cannot say, as
there is no relief for the congestion
: fit this time. ..... '.-K-S
i "There is no possible solution of
this problem unless we get the co-
' operation of the growers themselves.
"e "No other industry in the world
' blindly produces without any at
tention to potential market possibili
ties. In endeavoring to obtain qual-
ity for agriculture, it is perhaps es
sential that ' agriculture adopt some
of the basic principles of other lndus
'tries.'-: ., :--v.
"Wheat seems to be in the worst
situation of any of our major ercrs,
' as far as the export market is con
cerned, but fortunately there is only
a small amount of it exported onran
average. ,
"Your growers will ask how they
are going to get along with a less
:' production, but if they can get more
money, and we believe they can, by
raising four bushels where they are
now raising five, why should they
destroy the market by raising the ex
. tra bushel? '
f "A 20 per cent reduction would
make the tariff fully effective, .but
' the 10 per cent we are now suggest
' ing would in our judgment put the
trade on a fairly healthy basis."

height of the average center. He is
a wiry athlete, fast on the floor and
a good checker and combination play

services were held in the home Sun

the round trip with a load of wheat
to a steamboat landing on the Co
lumbia, where he sold his grain for
as low as twenty-three cents per
bushel. '

Seed Pea Prospects For
Weston Upland District
Operations have been practically

Frank Blair, the company's . local
representative, the plant may be
started up again before long to clean
seed shipped into Weston, but all the
ueas- frrown here last season have
now been taken care of.
'From all nresent indications, work
f the lncfll nlant will bo resumed the
coming fall. Quite a few mountain
farmers, it is said, have signined
their intention to try out seed pa
growing this year on part of their
acreage. Apart from the direct
value of the seed crop lor wnicn tne
company offers' two and one-half
centsi a, pound . this year the soil
is renewed and the culls and straw
make excellent cow and ', hog feed.
Some of the farmers who grew seed
peas last, year are fully convinced of
the value of this crop to the moun
tains, and will increase their acreage.
It is said to be the company's de
sire, to secure two thousand acres, in
cluding the leased ground in the Wild
Horse uplands which it will itself
handle. - The community of Weston
is hopeful that the seed concern's
program will be realized, in view of

promised Tuesday to the Columbia
Valley association by Charles Baker
secretary of the Walla Walla county
farm bureau, at a conference ! with
Dr. Clark Black and R. H. Kiflp of

to further use of the Columbia river
for transporting freight., .
Assurances that boats, would be

A letter from Dr. John W. Summers
representative in congress for ; the
Fourth district, was read in which he
stated the national . legislators will
look with more favor on any program
for river development if some use is
made. Kipp was plied with scores of
questions from the business men as
to plans for the canalization. He as
serted that a Government survev is
being made which will give an insight
into what can be done. :.,
Baker asserted farmers would save
4 to 6 cents a bushel if the canaliza
tion and barge development program
was brought to a successful conclu
sion. His claims, challenged by S. J.
Miller, local representative of the
Northern Pacific, Baker declared the
local bureau believes most of the
wheat raised on Eureka Flat could be
warehoused on;t the Snake river.
He asserted the canalization plan
with the use of barges will work in
line with the cooperative marketing
scheme which the government is
sponsoring and which Baker is lead
ing in this section. Kipp and Black
promised to return as soon as re
seeding is completed in order to or
ganize this territory in larger meas
