"Why should there be a standard weight for bread?" asked Jay Burns of Omaha, Neb., well known middle western baker before the fifth annual convention of the Transmississippi association of the baking Industry in second day's session at the Chamber of Commerce this morning. 'Nearly all ingredients of bread are sold by standard measure or weight." he said, "but why Ph.P"ld the product be required to weigh a certain amount when sold?. A -certain price a pound is asked for wool, but when you buy a suit of clothes, you don't buy It by the pound, do you?" .The debate over the standard bread weight law. with A. H. Eamford of Chicago, supporting-rthe. affirmative, and Jay Burns of Omaha, upholding the. negative, was the most interesting event on the morning s program. Says Public Demands It. Bamford said the principal reason for the establishment of a standard bread weight law was that the public is slowly but surely demanding it and that it would be better for the bakers to voluntarily establish such a law than to be forced to do so. "If bakers do not wish to lose the confidence of the consuming public they will be in favor of a standard weight," he said. Gov. Henry J. Allen was out of the city this morning but was to make the address on the industrial court scheduled for the morning program this afternoon. "Relation of Operating Costs to Ma terial Costs" was the subject of great interest to the bakers, as discussed by V. N. Power of Kansas City, Mo.

An order diverting equipment from parts of the counrty where the needs are not so pressing, and an embargo on nones sentials from some sections, are under consideration, it was learned. As a result of the commission's con sideration of the situation there is no use for congress to take act'on. Chair man Esch, Wisconsin, and other mem bers of the house committee said. The $500,000,000 additional loans asked by the railroad executives for the pur chased of new equipment cannot re lieve the present situation, they pointed out. Must Hurry 1920 Crops.

"I think the car shortage will not be greater than usual in the grain move ment." said Kendall. "Storage of cars in the southwest, where the grain movement will open about June 15. will begin in ten days. In 1919 25,000 cars were ready when the southwestern growers were ready to ship. We hope to be able to have an equal number of cars ready this year if necessary. The 1920 crops, however, are forecast as considerably below those of 1919. If this is so, 15.000 cars may prove sufficient to open the southwestern movement.

Year of Incidents, "The last year has been one of re markable incidents and surprises," Mr. Shirk said. "In the first half of the year, the children were brought to us - in rapid succession. During Christmas time we had more than usual on hand. Then there seemed to be a lull for two months when there seemed to he a rush of children to the home for shelter and love. Within one week, a family of seven, another of five, another of three, a tiny baby and a girl of fourteen years old. sev enteen in all, came to us from differ ent juvenile courts of the state.

"We had another very touching case in a family of seven that were sent to us by a juvenile court, both parents living, the mother soon after giving birth to twins. "Placements have been a little slow since the first of January, owing large ly to the high cost of living and the uncertainty of the future." Mr. Shirk said. "At the close of our fiscal year, we had twelve children on hand, more than ever before in the history of our society, and this week we have eigh teen in the receiving home, being also the largest number ever recorded be fore at one time.

'Washburn Slipping From Fold. That Washburn has been slipping from the Congregational fold was evi denced by figures introduced showing that there are only 118 Congregational students at Washburn as compared with 300 at Kansas university. R. W. Sanborn this morning de livered the annual address of the moderator, choosing for his subject " The Pilgrim Spirit and the New Age." He pointed out the sufferings and .the forward spirit of the Pilgrim Fathers, declaring that 'the' present age has passed beyond mere modernity. 'Mayflower Beats Huns." "It was the Mayflower," he said, "which made impossible the German victory. How pitiably inefficient were alt the German U-boats against the spiritual TNT that was Btored in the hold of that fragile little, craft. Too late. Admiral von Tirpitz. It was not the Lusitania you sunk, on the ground that it carried enemy ammunition. You should have cabled your ances tors to scuttle the Mayflower before she. ever anchored under the lee of Cape Cod. The mischief was done that long ago and all the strategy of the G. H. Q. and all the organization of that famous gray army could not catch up with the explosive effects of those few scratches of a pen in the cabin of the Mayflower." A. J. Culler, of McPherson college, told of the present situation in Tur key, where he spent some time and traveled extensively with the Brethren church relief expeditions. America is the one nation universally trusted and looked up to in that country, he de clared. The Turks have the viewpoint that America stands for justice and right, he asserted. Favors Armenia Mandate. Could a part of Armenia be 'set aside under American mandate, Doc tor Culler asserted. It would practical ly solve the Near East problem. The Turks would leave the territory and the Armenians residing in Turkey would move into it, he said. He de clared the Armenians are a highly in tellectual and progessiv people, but are m danger oi losing tneir jnnsuan ity as the result of their persecution at the hands of the Turks. Their new religion, he said, was responsible for their suffering, from their viewpoint. The Mohammedan power is slowly slipping from the earth and already many leading Turks have signified their desire to become Christians, he said. Dr. Frank M. Sheldon, of Boston, gave a talk on "Jesus and the Religion of His Day," In which he pointed out that many of the statements made by j Christ were misconstrued by the pres ent generation. - "The Problem f the Congregational Student" was the subject of an address by Prof. W.

Sheldon, of Boston, In his talk before the ministers attending the sixty-sixth annual Congregational conference at the First church Tues- iday afternoon. He flayed both capital and labor for the part they are play ing in non-production and high price. In Bible times those who preyed upon the poor were thrown out of the land. This should be done - with the modern profiteer. Doctor Sheldon de clared. He charged that those who took advantage of the war to make millions of dollars profit were worse than the slackers who dodged military service. A. L. Goudy. of Partridge, delivered the conference sermon Tusday night. Communion services were- held in .charge of President P. P. Womer. of I Washburn, and the Rev. John Rice.
