Less Favorable Position Seen
For Northwest Wheat Grower
In Local Leaders' Report
A determined battle is being
waged on three or four "fronts" to
save the northwest wheat grower
from increasingly severe freight rate
discrimination in the handling of the
products of the Inland Empire, ac
cording to A. H. Nelson, county com
mitteeman for the Eastern Oregon
In charge of the campaign for
equitable freight rates is the Tri
State Wheat Transportation council,
which was organized through the
efforts of the Eastern Oregon Wheat
league and the Farm Rate council.
The efforts of the tri-state body are
directed by a board composed of five
members of the Eastern Oregon
Wheat league, five growers of east
ern Washington and five from north
The seriousness of the freight rate
situation is indicated, according to
E. H. Miller of Lexington, chairman
of the wheat transportation commit
tee, by the fact that during the first
few months of 1937 prices received
by Inland Empire farmers for their
wheat averaged 24 cents a bushel
below the national average price, or
nearly twice the price differential
which prevailed in 1933 when the
situation was considered so serious
that the North Pacific Emergency
Export associaion was organized to
subsidize foreign exports.
One of the first efforts of the
tri-state council was to represent
Inland Empire growers before the
Interstate Commerce commission in
attempts to reverse increases in
freight rates which have resulted in
losses to northwest growers of the
newly-developed southeastern mar
ket. Through increases in rates from
Gulf and Atlantic ports inland and a
reduction in rates from middle west
ern soft red winter wheat areas to
southeastern states, the Pacific
northwest was placed in an unfavor
able position in competition with
These adverse changes in rates be
came effective in July, 1936. Since
that time the council has presented
its case at a hearing held in Seattle
last August and is now planning to
argue the case further before the
entire Interstate Commerce commis
sion in Washington, D. C.
Added to these unfavorable devel
opments there has occurred this year
an increase of from 10 to 18 per cent
in ocean freight rates through the
canal on flour and wheat, and still
more recently a plea on the part of
railroad executives for a general in
crease of 10 per cent in all freight
Unless the council is successful
in gaining a revision of these adverse
rate structures, the Pacific north
west wheat grower will suffer losses
aggregating millions of dollars an
nually, according to J. M. Parish,
secretary of the Tri-State Wheat
Announced by Nish
Condon Plans are rapidly shaping
up for the tenth annual meeting of
the Eastern Oregon Wheat league,
to be held this year at La Grande at
the request of wheat farmers from
counties east of the Blue mountains,
according to C. A. Nish, Mikkalo,
president of the league.
Names of members of the various
county committees have been an
nounced by President Nish and the
executive committee, and will soon
be holding meetings to formulate re
ports. These men will take their

mittee meeting to be held in La
Grande on December 2, where final
