the farmerg was male by tlie senate
agricultural committee tcday in a state

n protest from farn'crs throughout tlie
United State who fear '.hey will suf
fer heavy losses tliij year.
While approving efforts to reduce
the cost' of " living, the committee ex
plained that the f.-.-n.ersi' interests
must be safeguarded.
Hundreds of inillii.i.s of bushels of
wheat have been shriveled by heat this
ascason, it was stated, and ender present
grading rules cannot sell for more thau

"At this time we shall insist on a
change in the whe.it standards so-as
not to ptymltw every grower of wheat.'
the committee announced. "The pro
ducers are 'defrauded and the consum
ers receive no benef:."
The Myers resolut'on to study the
advisability of loi!at:cii to limit ex
ports of food stuffs, clothing and oth
er uecevariej was bofor.; the senate
Senator Weed, Missouri, was expect
ed to speak on the cos' of living iu the
"1 am not in favor of letting groat
quantities of food, shoes and clothing
go abroad while we arc r.quited to pay
tribute to profiteers acre," Myers
said, in urging adoption of his mena
' lire. .
The grain situation ing'iged the at
tent ion of the aenate agriculture com
mittee. Heads Of farm owaniuations
were iu conference w:th the committee
over proposals to abolish the United
Mates grain corpora'ion, wipe out the
minimum wheat price gutiinntee'and re

the Salem market this senson, or the
gross value or the net returns to the
growers, for there has been a strange
cotupliratiun of market conditions, to

It is generally co .coded that there
may never cgain prevail such a high

Congressmen and repiesentativeg of
farm organizations probably will sign
the statement later.
"The people of the farmi, are deep
ly concerned in the u.rcst manifest
now in the serious protests against the
high eosl of the necessaries of life,"
the statement said. "While entirely
sympathetic with the hardships which
present prices cause the people of the
city, fanners individually and through
their organisations ae no lew concern
ed with their own economic situation
an ! with the question of production of
the raw materials of food and clothing.
Tho effeet of the resent agitation
must be seeu rom the point of view of
tha producer, in order to be under
stood. There is danger that city inter
ests, by reasmi of their predominance
iu ntsmbor and orgui uation, may take
unwise, steps withort understanding
tho almost self evident result of such
unreasoning acts as might 'ruin the
fanner and serious'.v 'eUn.e fnrm pro

"It must be remi:nbered that this
drive is now coming at a time when
the great staple products of the fnrms
are going to market ud that in selling
the wheat crop, fo m'trree, the farm

The result of such wolie.y, together with

AMERICA CAN DO KORE
FOR WORLD OUTSIDE OF
(United Preu Staff Corresjsjudeuv.)
WsjiJuagton, Aug. IS. America, in
dependent, can be of greater service to
the world thaa America "fettered" by
the league of nations, Senator Lodge,
Massicuosetts, Bepublic.su leader of the
senate, asserted today ia a senate speech
on the league.
"By meddling ia all the differences
which may arise among mankind, we
simply fritter away our influence and
injure ourselves to.ua good purpose,"
"We shall be of fat more value to tne
world aad its peace by occupying, so far
as possible the situation we have occu
pied for the last twenty years and by
adhering to the policy of Washington
Lodge denied this means a policy of
American isolation. That, he suid, ia no
louuer noaaible, because the United
States became a world power at the time
of the war with Saiu.
"Nobody," said Iodge, "expects to
Isolate the Carted States 0r to make it
a hermit nation."
