The position of the farmers of
the United Stj tea will be made

The Harding :farm conference will
meet on fanuai*} 23. Then the peo
ple will know what the farmer
wants. *
Of courae. Pre* ident Harding will
f*nnounce why h< has called it. But,
after all. that is incidental.
The President: himself has ad
j| fnltted this. Bvf* the opening ad

Important utterances of hia admin

Mr. Harding ;?t that time will

pleaaes. He can suggg?*t remedies.
,f?There is no violation ?f confidence
when it is stated that i this is one
thing that President H C-rding, Sec
retary r>avis and other i,nembers of
p. Aie Cabinet would like t<\ compel.
A free and complete exchange of
ideas on "What is the maitteer with
the United States?" coupled with
another Suggestion of what the
remedy ought to be, w<*ild please
the President and his advisers.
They have had all of the? troubles
facing them poured forth. ( The ag
ricultural "bloc" In Con: press and
pther suggested dlvisicpm have
frade open complaint. Burt the ad
ministration frankly says now, and
^ias said so for week, that vif is not
f?o concerned with complaint? as it
is with what the remedy s^'iall be.
Chief IMvlsioa* to Refo^rt,
Last night Secretary Wallace
suggested what his program'will be
fr. dealing with the conference.
After the opening addnass by
President Harding, the first '<lay of
the conference. Secretary Wallace
explained, probably- would b*e de
voted to a canvass of the gi neral
agricultural situation throxsjghout
the country.
From the Northwestern delegates
there will come a presentatio n of
conditions in their section. \ ''rom
4 the range country will be presented
a survey of conditions there, -with
similar expressions of conditions
prevailing in the cotton belt, the
^ grain belt, and otlyr producing
| areas.
' In that manner, it is assured, 'the
entire conference may be given a
blrdseye view of agriculture as a
whole, the conditions prevailing fn
each of the chief divisions, and U*e
problems thus presented.
Following the discussion, the con
ference, Secretary Wallace staterl
last night, probably would xwiah to
divide into Committees, each com
mittee to Consider some important
phase of the work and report bacftc
to the main gathering.
Coaaltteet to Meet.
No attempt has been made. Sec- I
retary Wallace also pointed out. to
lay down a hard and faat program j
in advance for the conference's con- I
aideratlon. Suggestions will be
made to the conference from time
to time in keeping with President
Harding'a ideas in proposing that
the gathering be called.
The general aeaaiona of the sec
ond day of the conference probably
will be devoted to aeveral short
addresses as to what might prop
erly and profitably be done to im
^ prove conditions in certain phases
m of agriculture. The conference will
hold general sessions in the fore
noons and utilise the afternoons
and evenings for group committee
meetings to consider specific de
tails. ^
Attention will be called to the
European situation as it afreets the
American fanner, and discussion
will be invited as to what possible
readjustments might be made here
to relieve the situation. There also
will be discussion. In all probabil
ity, of financial afTairs relating
both to the present emergency and
th? future.
Forestry Pelley m Topic.
Looking to the future, as the
President suggeated In his letter of
December SO. the suggestion of the
conference will be Invited as to
best methods to be puraued in
formulating a national agricultural
policy.

the future food supply of the na

The naval committee of the arms

troubles until Monday Meanwhile
governments are being consulted.
There are two propositions that are
halting developments. They are
the fact that the conference Is seek
ing a formula that will remove all
questions of ambiguity as to what

WM atated emphatically last
night that suggestions that there
most foolish propositions yet made.
Yesterday the committee on naval
afTairs. made up of the chief of the
five divisions, met and made prog
ress with the naval treaty. They
paased upon the suggested texts,
and then adjournment was taken to
allow the preparation of a new
copy to be conaldered by all of the
five delegations.
fthaatnag Leading base.
Shantung will have the right of
way until there are decisions on
the smaller propositions. Then, of
course, will come the question of
the possession of the railway which
if agreed to. will finish all of the
outstanding difficulty.
It can be stated as a fact that
the naval treaty as originally
agreed to will not radically be
amended. There will be an agree
ment that nations adhering to the
treaty shall have the right to con
vert certain of their highest ton
nage ships Into air-craft carriers.
But In doing this the regulations
of the treaty will be enforced.
Certain of the nations which have
a high allotment will make a w^le
lot of money by doing this. Certain
scheduled warships that are to be
scrapped may be saved at a real
substantial saving.
But there will be a .careful un
derstanding that no ship ordered
to the scrap heap, and not com
pletely salvaged by an agreement
for substitution, shall be replaced
in commission. There will be no
loophole allowed through which it
Will be possible to evade the scrap
order. And this goes for the latest
products of Japanese and other
shipyards.
Naval Treaty Landed.
H The? naval treaty as completed

the opinion of various delegation
spokesmen. Last night, however.
It was suggested that there had
been a very evident effort to stress
matters which had not even been
In dispute between the delegations
to make It appear that here was
something uncanny behind the ne
gotlattons.
Suggestions that certain delega
tions had raised the question that
their confidences had been abused
by the publication of points under

amusement in inner conference cir.
cles. As a matter of fact the pub
licity dodge on the present con
ference has been so far outworked
that newspaper correspondents who
donH want to accept propaganda
as. propaganda, have to turn
sharply to the right and keep go
ing when they flirtl the various
delegation spokesmen heading to
ward them under full sail.
There will be no plenary sessions
for some days to come. Anybody's
guesa to date Is aa good as any
one a else. But it looked last night
aa though by Monday night the fi
nal dates for the conference would

WILL PUT FORD'S
SHOALS PROPOSAL
UP TO CONGRESS
Secretary Weeks Is Un
derstood to Have Virtu
ally Accepted Offer.
With the announcement of Sec
retary of War Week* that he will
?end Henry Ford's $150,000,000 bid
for the Muscle Shoals nitrate plant
to Congress, it Is understood that
the offer has virtually been ac
cepted.
Congress is to receive the offer
In contract form within a week
with comments and recommenda
tions by the Secretary of War.
Secretary Weeks declined to dis
close the nature of these "com
ments."
The responsibility of definitely
turning over the Alabama plant to
Ford would be placed upon Con
gress. Secretary Weeks Intimated,
for a Congressional sppropriation
of approximately $30,?*0,000 will be
necessary before the work Is com
pleted.

Ford plans to utilise the Muscle
Shoals plant proper for the manu
facture of "ch^ap" fertilisar. But
the construction of dams, for which
i?the ( opgre ?gas> ap?ia?idatt?n> to
intended. in connection with thV
Muscle Shoals project well event
ually mean a vast Improvement of
-the Mississippi Valley* la Ford's
: opinion.
In announcing that the offer
would be submitted to Congress.
Secretary Weeks said to meet the
contention of the government that
there be an sgreement on the limit
of cost of completing the two dams.
Ford had signified his willingness
to pay 4 per cent on the total cost
of completion, whatever that may
be, until the amount fs amortised.
RaHaatf Cmmt
Already Ford and Thomas A.
Edison have estimated the cost of
completing these dams at $2$,000.
000. At this rate Ford would have
to pay annually $1,120,000.
Ford said he was confident his
offer would be accepted by the ad
ministration and declared that with
the sssistance of a sufficient Con
gressional appropriation, it would
be possible not only to complete
the dams now under construction
but several additional dams.
As a result of such construction.
Ford said, the Mississippi River
Valley would be developed to such
an extent as to go a long way
toward solving the railroad prob
lem. toward lighting, heating and
generating Industrial power for the
valley more cheaply than ever
before.
Meatflaaa Carreaey Plaa.
"If the government should un
dertake the proper development
of the power possibilities of the
Mississippi and its tributaries."
Ford said, "the question of unem
ployment of navy yard men or of
any other class of men who really
want to work would be forever
settled. The government could is
sue currency against the project,
the rentals would retire the cur
rency In twenty years and the
project would be paid for without
one cent of cost to the people."
According to Chief Engineer
Mayo, of the Ford Motor Company,
"everything is settled. We are
now down to brass tack*."

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 13.?An erf
tat* eatimated at between $4,000,004

"TO help jobless
Executive Opposes Class
Legislation in Federal
More than an hour ' f ywterday'i
Cabinet meeting was aevoted to the
reception of a report hy Secretary
of State* Hughes, In which he ex
pressed the utmost confidence that
an early, complete and most satis
factory report of all developments
in the armament conference would
i ne "???
colleagues the statu* of all of the
negotiations. WbUe he <Md ?ot
read a copy of the treaty under
consideration, he explained what it
made effective. His report was wel
come. and later tt was explained
that the President waa hopeful that
the final result will please not only
America but the people -of the
world.
Another matter that came in for
discussion was the unemployment ;
situation. Secretary of Commerce |
Herbert Hoover called attention to
the necessity of the various de
partments doing everything possi
ble to reduce unemployment In the
aeaaonal occupations. President
Harding Indorsed the position of
Mr. Hoover, and he asked all of the
Cabinet members to Initiate work
wherever' possible to take care of
the unemployed, especially those
who by reason of the weather could
not carry on. The Prealdent made
it plain that Mr. Hoover had hia
complete support In all a?ch meas
ures Initiated, and It waa aaid later
that eventually construction under
all departments will be pushed to
the limit.
The president had l?efore Him
Csterday the special report pre
red by the Federal Advtsorv
Council taking cogn'sance of the at
tempted leglalatlon to compel tha
appointment of a "dirt farmer" on
I tha Federal Reserve Board.
Qnp.se. (Ism UfWstles.
In thla connection it can be stated
that the Piealrtim personally *>
prove* of the aentlment behlml the
agitation for this sort of legisla
tion. He would willingly appoint a
practical Tarmer to any Job In the
gift of the administration. But he
Is opposed to claas legislation In
every form and has no hesitancy
In saying so.
The report which was filed witn
the President by the Federal Ad
visory Committee declared at the
outset that "a grave situation ex
ists which endangers the safety of
the Federal Reserve System."
Attention then was called to the
Senate bill demanding the appoint
ment of a "person whooe business Is
farming" to the next vacancy on
the Federal Reserve Boand. This
was characterised as "claw legisla
tion" and attention called to the
fact that if a farmer, then why not
later. In successive stages, labor
and every possible interest In Amer
ica.
Two Principles Set Forth.
If the legislation were to be
adopted, the advisory committee de
clared. It would indorse the ''un
warranted" assertion that the pres
ent plight of the farmer lr due to
the maladministration of the Fed
eral Reserve System. It -was then
stated that the report of the Joint
Committee on Agriculture shows
that the slump In the price of agri
cultural products Is world-wide
The reasons of course, was polnten
out In that It Is Impossible to tam
per with the law of supply and de
mand. At great length the report
explained the operation* of the
Federal Reserve Board sy*tem and
denied emphatically that the farmer
ever has been slighted.
In conclusion two principles were
set forth In detail about as fol

Lloyd George Seeks Statement*
The British premier has tele
graphed his desire to meet the new
government at once to discuss the
Anglo-French alliance and other
questions affecting the future rela
tions of the allies. He will seek,
it is understood, a definite state
ment as to the course France In
tends to pursue In order to be able
to mold his own program accord
ingly.
The press, generally approving
Briand's course of action* In resign
ing. In the belief that It will clear
the atmosphere, at the same time
indicates some conccrn lest the fall
of the government and the ascension
of the nationalists may be constued
abroad a? an indication of militar
ism or imperialism, and inany news
papers were todav explaining away
this attitude.
"We hope that our American
friends will not construe Briand's
resignation as a proof France is
militaristic and war-seeking*** saye
the Vlctolre.
It Is confidently believed that the
negotiations not on*y regarding the
Anglo-French treaty of defensive
alliance, but on the purely economic
pioblems affecting Europe, will be
resumed as soon as Poincare's new
government Is firmly establiahed.
