!
Agriculture Dept. Aims to Pro- 1
tect Wheat Producers From
Pit Speculators.
liUnutltHl Newa lervler.
While the Department of Agricul
ture baa no substantiation of chtrfta .
that wheat prlcea are being driven <
' 'own by manipulation, Secretary of <
Agriculture Meredith today atated
that he will use every effort In hla <
power to aee that the farmer seta a '
fair price for hla wheat and other 1
producta. |
Commenting on charge* by Senator
Capper, of Kanaaa, that Chicago wheat
apeculatora are planning to "rob the
farmera of every hard-earned cant of 1
profit there may be In the 1(20 wheat
crop," Secretary Meredith declared ,
that "the producer muat receive an
adequate price for hla product."
CAPPER ( HAUiM PLOT.
Senator Capper declared that
manipulator* in the Chicago wheat
pit are engaged In a raid on the pit '
with the "intention of robbing the
farmer" of hla wheat, by creating a
lump In prlcea, and once getting the
wheat In their own hands, to boost the (
price again. Senator Capper char*
acteriied the present ftactlca in the pit
as "simply a grain gambling con- <
splracy to bilk the people and grain <
growers out of several hundred millions
of dollars, and Ity success depends
solely on how long the gamblers
can prolong the raid and
manipulate the market."
Secretary Meredith said that his de- *
partment has no Information yet
which ahows how manipulation is affecting
the price.
"Our experts in the fleld are at j
work keeping up with the crops, en- j
deavoring to ascertain the size of the ,
crops, and In general to see what the .
world situation is." the Secretary t
| said. "This Information will be placed
at the disposal of the farmers and the
public as fast as we get it. and we j
will naturally tend to keep down j
speculation by spreading the latest ^
information we get."
Secretary Meredith indicated that (
he felt strongly the situation the j
farmer is in. He pointed out that j
the farmer was told that the world j
depended on him for wheat and food, {
and that the demand was greater j
than ever before. .
CROP BETTER THAJT AVERAGE. J
"Acting on this plea In good faith,
the farmer has proceded to raise a
crop this year bftter than the av- .
erage," Secretary Meredith said. "In j
spite of generally unsettled conditions
and unprecedented difficult In
securing labor and transportation facilities,
the farrriers are repeating
under the difficulties of readjustment '
the assurance that they are not f
daunted nor deterred by adverse condltlons
from doing their full share c
for the welfare of society. C
"Business men as well as other
elements of the population m'ust r
realize that If the record made by s
the farmers during the war and dur- *
ing readjustment is to be maintained. 0
and the food requirements of the na- 0
tion met, farmera must receive ade- L
quate prices for their products, prices S
which will enable them to continue to *
produce, to secure a reasonable return
for their efforts."
