from Attorneys Bobbins Anderson and

Defiance of the legal action of tha

as it waa said at the meeting,, caused
that body to take steps to prevent , a
recur renre of 'disregard of its regula
tions and it ia feasible that tha entire
weight of the. federal food commission

only waiting the receipt of eertain in
formation, by cable, from Adminis
Mr. Dole, in opening tha meeting,
saiii the, members were called '.'to con
sider the breaking of our laws in re
gard to the salea of rice."
"It ahowa a clear ease of absolute
defiance ot our rules," said tbe chair
man, "These laws were passed by our
commission with tha honest effort to
prevent profiteering," an! to obtain a
fair profit aad price for the growers to
prevent any injustice. It soems to roe
this is an absolutely clear rase of profit
eeriag of a flagrant character. The
argument- that tbe price should be as
high as tha- California price seems to
me to have little bearing on the case.
The local authorities, abould enforce
these regulations. If it is impossible
for us to enforce the regulations wc
ought to know it."
Boogs Suggests Action J '
W. 1L Hoogs Sr., suggested that
Chairman Dole- awear out a warrant
against' McCandieas for profiteering.
Mr. Dole, however, said advice as to
