TALKS OF SUGAR
Former Food Administrator Gives
Viows on Entire Situation.
Washington, May 14.-Herbert
Hoover, former food administrator
and candidate for the Republican nom
ination for president, gave his views
to congress today on the sugar sit
Appearing before a house commit
toe investigating the sugar situation
Mir.. Hoover declared that the world
shortage of the product was likely to
continue two or three years. The
pressing need was rationing, lie said,
-with immediate government action to
control -the supply through corn ucre
lal, not legalistic methods.
Although the hearing related pr'i
marily to the action of Attorney Gen
cral Palmer in approving a maximum
price for the Louilslana crop, it reached
out. into ia broader field after M r.
I loover said lie could give only an "off
hand" opinion as to that proceeding.
Mr. illoover, said, however, that the
governmenit shouild have bought the
'Louilslana cro!) last year, pocketing
the loss or else selling to the luxury
trade at an advance.
'arlier in the (lay Mr. 4Hoover, who
was a member of President Wilson's
second industrial conference, told the
senate labor committee lie did not be
lieve that the relationship between
employers and eiployces could be set
tied by any form of legal repression
whether It be by injunction, compul
sory arbitration or Industrial courts.
'While a large audience heard Mr.
Hoover's views before both commit
tees, the greatest Interest was dis
played by crowds that sought enlight
enment on the shortage and high prlice
of sugar, with its resultant tax on the
family pocketbook. Answering a mul
titude of iluestions hearing onl the
Louisiana crop and price situation Mr.
Hoover explained that lie had no
knowledge of his own on the subject
but that it influenced Cuban produc
er's to stimulate prices, and that except
for it, the rise in prices would have
been less rapid.
Mi. Hoover frankly disagreed with
the policy adopted by the attorney
general saying that if he had been in
the latter's place he "certainly would
not have attempted sdlich an opera
tion." Prices never could be fixed by
threats of jail, he said, adding that
the proper course was through com
In making reply to members who

there was a chance to help by limit
