By the Associated Press. KANSAS CITY, May 27.—Through W. B. Lincoln, president of the Kansas City Board of Trade, grain men here yesterday repeated their offer to pur chase the entire Farm Board holdings of cash wheat at the price the board is offering it at the Gulf and Atlantic seaboard for export. In again offering to purchase the sur plus. estimated at 90,000.000 bushels, the Kansas City grain men denied a public statement of the board that the private trade's purchase ofTer had been at a figure IS to 20 cents below the market. Lincoln characterized the board's statement as a gross misrepresentation of facts. “Realizing fully the depressing influ ence of Government wheat,” he said, “the grain men made numerous pro posals seeking to get rid of this wheat surplus, and the prevailing market price has governed each offer made. "At no time did the trade underbid on this grain. The effect of this Gov ernment surplus has so undermined normal merchandising methods that we had only the public interests and that of the country at heart, so that confi dence would be revived in our markets to hasten the return of normalcy.” SUSPENSION PROTESTED. Head of Farmers’ National Grain Cor poration Defends Updike Co. CHICAGO. May 27 (#)■—C. E. Hufl. president of the Farmers' National Orain Corporation, last night described as "not only far-fetched, but without merit” the charges upon which the Chicago Board of Trade suspended the Updike Grain Co., a subsidiary of the Farm Board-sponsored co-operative. Denying that Updike officials made false affidavits as to Updike stock ownership, HufT said an affidavit filed with the Board of Trade “clearly shows Farmers' National Grain Corporation to be the holder of the large majority of the stock,” with HufT, Oeorge S. Milnor, Farmers’ National general man ager, and J. P. Florentine, Updike sec retary, holding one share each and F. J. Thatcher the remainder. It was clearly inferred, he added, that this was “for corporate conven ience." Florentine and Thatcher had their trading privileges suspended by the board.

ACREAGE INCREASE CALLED NOMINAL Agriculture Department Com pares Figures With Harvest Records. Agriculture Department officials are not greatly concerned over the 7,000,000 acre increase in world wheat acreage over last year, as reported by the Inter national Institute ol Agriculture in Rome. They say it is not really an in crease over last year's plantings. They printed out that the 7.000,000 acre Increase in United States Spring wheat is found in comparing farmers' intentions to plant with the acreage actually harvested last year, which was reduced to 14,000,000 by drought and heavy abandonment. The average acre age planted in this area in recent years is 21.000,000 acres, the amount ex pected to be sown this Spring If inten tions are carried out as reported. United States Winter wheat acreage remaining for harvest on May X was 32,277,000, as against 41,009,000 on the corresponding date last year, a reduc tion of more than 8,000,000.
