PRICE, IS PLEA
Julius Barnes, U. S. Gram
Official, Says Nation Must
It is "unthinkable'' that Congress,
paving placed a guarantee on the
price of wheat, should in any manner
neglect to keep faith ?with the farm
era of the country, Julius H. Barnes,
1 president of the Food Administration
' Grain Corporation, told the House
Agricultural Committee yesterday.
As further argument for jnaintain
Y ing a guarantee on the price of wheat,
Mr. Barnes protested that "America
shall not place the power to name the
value of its products in the hands of
any concentrated buying agency (for
eign^, no matter how friendly."
>aggfstii l.mbargo Power.
It was made clear that no rationing
system for this country is contem
plated. nor regulation of retailers.
Mr. Barnes mado the following sug
gestions for incorporation in any leg
islation Congress may enact:
An appropriation of at least
Authority to buy. if necessary, in
the regular commercial manner,
pledging the credit and property of
whatever agency shall be set up.
Authority to buy ard sell wheat
and other cereals and their prod
ucts and other foodstuff at home
Import and export embargo power.
Also, authority to build storage
facilities or contract for construc
tion with private enterprise and au
thority to requisition storage and
prescribe terms of payment; to
licence dealers, millers and ele
vators; to control exchange trad
ing; to* transport at home and
abroad and carry on business any
where in the world and to form for
use any corporation or agencies
Preferential service on American
Railroad* and authority to eontrul
ansport flow of all cereals or
oducts into any markets or sea
iMr. Barnes said he was forced to
^e conclusion that the only wise
gislation possible at present i*>
|ch essential preparation to Aeet
|y possible development or cond
ition of influence creating tli
lost unfavorable conditions.
I'Thj wheat needs of the three
jlies. the United Kingdom. France
[d Italy, will run not less than
.000,000 tons annually." he said,
ind of this the British colonies
innot be expected to furnish over
lalf. Yet that half, being under
Seir influence, could b?* so used as
establish a prize level, on which,
ler any definitely committed pol
. we must furnish the other half.
|nd I protest that America shall
lot place the power to name the
|?alue on its product in the hands
[of any concentrated buying agency,
'no matter how friendly.''
Will Maintain 92.2H Price.
As to broad policies. Mr. Barnes
*aid the grain corporation did not
believe America's surplus wheat
should be sold aProad at a lower
price than paid by her own con
sumers, that a government guar
anteed price would be intended
primarily for the American pro
ducer. and that whatever method of
faking- this effective is used, it
must contemplate reflecting from
those markets to the producer him
self, at a fair basis.
Chairman Lever made it clear that
nothing else was intended by the
committee than that faith be kept
with the farmers and the guarantee
of $2.26 per bushel made by the
government be made good.

'Recommendation by Gen.
Crowder in> Report of Se
lective Service Act.
Emphasizing the enrollment by the
selective draft machinery of 13*000,000
in one day, Provost Marshal General
Crowder, in his current annual report,
recommends to the government that
the next census be handled through
the War Department draft process.
Gen. Crowder says: "The selective
draft law resulted in the enrollment
of over 24.000,000 men?13,000,000 in a
single day and a total of over 24.000.000
in four days. Not alone was the en
rollment accomplished, but a com
plete survey and classification as to
the domestic and industrial status of
those enrolled was made."
Referring to the results of the draft.
Gen. Crowder says that on the date
of the signing of the armistice the
War Department "had produced an
army of 2,810.290 men. Had mobiliza
tion lasted five days longer the se
lective service oiganization would
have placed with the colors more
than 3.000,000 soldiers." It is also
shown that had the war continued it
was intended to create an army by the
selective draft of 7.131,00*) men, most
of whom would eventually have been

says, at a total cost of f 10.000,000. In

capita was |217. while uud< r the recent
draft it was only I6.S2.
The speed with which armies were
raised in Great liiitain and in th<
United States is shown in the fol
