Honorary President Urges
Legislation to Unionize
Agricultural Industry.
i ""he forty-third annual convention
of the Association of Official Agricul
tural Chemists, formed primarily to
promote the adoption of uniform
methods of the analysis of materials
relating to agricultural pursuits,
• attended this morning to hear the an
nual address of its honorary president,
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley. It will close
tomorrow morning after a program
devoted to the consideration of com
j mittee reports, dealing with technical
j subjects which are important factors
j in modern farming and dairy methods.
Addressing about 200 delegates and
i guests from every section of the coun
try In which the government conducts
! agricultural experimental stations. Dr.
j Wiley predicted that the farmer will
i never co-operate and fix his own
prices during this era.
Urging that the farmer share in
the protection afforded industry, Dr.
"Wiley spoke in favor of legislation
which will serve to unionize the farm
er just as authority to establish agri
cultural stations has already con
ic: .ed upon him the means of learn- j
ing scientific agriculture.
The proposed legislation would ere-1
ate a board of experts, members of 1
the faculties of land grant colleges l
and agricultural experiment stations, I
to ascertain the cost of production I
of certain agricultural products and I
' finally permit the farmer to set a j
price of his product based on the!
1 j production cost estimated by experts, i
' j permitting a reasonable percentage j
1 , of profit. Many details are considered
' ] in the estimates, including the aver- [
; age cost of all the States in reference
I also to the quantity produced and

Search for Missing Woman
Has Now Lasted 13 Days.
Friends Baffled.
It has been 13 days since Mrs. Ann
Ramsey Forbush slipped from Keith’s
Theater while her husband. Rev.
Dascomb E. Forbush, pastor of First
Congregational Church. Canandaigua.
N. Y., waited at another exit and
today the mystery of her disappear
ance is as baffling as on the rainy
night when she fell victim for the
third time in eight years to an obses
sion which impels her to seek solitude.
The searching party, which last
week numbered about 30 Canandaigu
ans and friends from Rochester,
N. Y., had dwindled this morning to
Rev. Mr. Forbush and Clifford A.
Parmenter of Rochester. A message
was received, however, from Canan
daigua that Rev. George E. Finlay,
pastor of the Baptist Church there,
and Dr. Robert G. Cook, head of
Brigham Hall Sanitarium are en route
here. They are expected to arrive
early this afternoon.
Maintain Permanent Posse.
Home-town friends of Rev. and Mrs.
Forbush have adopted a definite
policy of maintaining a permanent
posse here, as much to comfort the
anxipus husband as to assist in the
search. Although it is felt that a
large posse is no longer necessary,
unless some definite clues develop in
which event the original posse of 23
men is in readiness to return here,
two or more friends plan to be here
for the duration of the search.
Rev. Mr. Forbush and Mr, Par
menter conferred this morning with
Lieut. Mina C. Van Winkle, head of
the Women's Bureau, enlisting her co
operation in a canvas of rooming
houses and places where feminine help
is employed. The possibility has not
been lost sight of that the obsession
which has twice driven the missing
woman to hide herself in the woods
may have taken this time a new
twist, causing her to adopt a different
mode of life and lose her identity in
a large city.
Rev. Mr. Forbush was somewhat
encouraged by a report that a woman
answering the description of his wife
had been seen in New Hampshire.
The Forbush Summer cottage is at
Canaan, N. H., in the White moun
tains. and the theory was advanced
early in the search that she might be
attempting to make her way back to
the cottage where she has spent many
quiet hours.
Clues Prove Futile.
Yesterday was a day of futile clues
as have been dreary preceding days.
One clue led to a search of an aban
doned cemetery near Adams Mill
road but it developed later that a
woman who had been seen entering
the cemetery did not answer the de
scription of the missing woman.
When Mrs. Forbush disappeared
she was wearing a small, tightly fit
ting brown hat, a brown coat with
a raccon collar and hose and shoes
to match. She weighs about 130
pounds, is 5 feet 4 inches tall, and has
light bobbed hair and gray eyes.
National attention has been drawn
to the search. Rev. Mr. Forbush has
been in receipt of letters of sympathy
and advice from all over the country.
This morning he received a letter
from a woman in Los Angeles.
