MIDWEST GROWERS i QUIT WHEAT POOL Lack of Sufficient Support Causes Abandonment of 1929 Plans by Directors of Group. By the .Wioclftted Press. OMAHA. Neb., June 13 —The World- Herald said today that the movement sponsored by the Midwest wheat pool organization for contract pooling of Nebraska and Western Wyoming wheat has failed for this year, because of lack of sufficient support from growers. The newspaper said that officials of the organization announced that cf-| sorta had failed to bring into the pool i 50 per cent of the wheat in the terrl- | tory represented and that directors , therefore had found it necessary to abandon plans sot the 1929 pool. The decision was said to have been , reached in Lincoln, Neb., Saturday at a stormy meeting, during which di rectors learned that only 11,000 of a promised 15,000 contracts were avail able. This d'seovery. the newspaper fur-! ther says, led to dismissal of Philip F. Bross. who has been managing di rector of the pool, and J. W. Brinton, who has been assistant director.
