Abolition of Consolidated
Buying Is Urged By Hoover
In Letter to Farm Meeting
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 9. American
farmers face a new era, which will
be marked by a steady improvement
in marketing conditions, despite the
present discouraging low pi ices of
1 farm products, speakers deck-red to
day at the opening session of the
filltfnth annual international farm
Confidence in the future of the
farming industry was expressed ami
fanners were warned of the danger
of cutting production. Marketing of
products on hand ratUer than future
production plans drew the principal
d'scussion at the first session.
A letter from Herbert Hoover, out
lining what he characterized as "the
major needs of American agricul
ture," was rea'l. His suggestions in
clu led:
"Peace with Europe and participa
tion of the I'mted States in preserv
ing peace.

Assembly Disappointed Over
America's Unwillingness
to Attend Conference
Dominion's Delegates Secure
Elimination of Permanent
Commissions Clause
tiK.EVA, Dec. 9. President Wil-1
son's negative reply to the leaj i;e of
nations' invitation to name an unof
ficial delegate to. cooperate with the
commission to be appointed by the
assembly to. discuss disarmament
has caused great disappointment
here. Tiie chiet desire of the assem
bly members seems to be to maintain
as nn:ny point of contact as possi
ble wi'h the United States and it
was ihought. tti disarmament inves
tigation afforded tin opportunity of
winch President Wilson could take
advantage without committing him
self. President Wilson's decision re
garding the. Armenian boundaries
have not been received here. It is
thought in league circles that his re
ply has more likely been sent to Ixin
don or Paris, since it is a matter for
consideration by the supreme coun
cil of tl.e allies, rather than by the
league of nations. Canada, whose
delegation has made a great impres
sion on the assembly, scored again
today when it secured elimination of
the provision in the technical com
mittee's report for permanent fi
nance, transit and health commis
sions. The as;i-Miibly. impressed by
the growing expenses of the league
and the international labor bureau,
accepted the Canadian view.
The Canadians agreed it was pref
erable to work with temporary eom
mis.Voiis having - onsultiiig power
only until it is possible to .-ie more
clearly just what may be done with
specialized organizations.
The prospects of a prolonged stay
in Geneva are beginning to worry
the delegates and officials of the as
sembly. All life members of the del
egations are making every effort in
committees or full sessions to in
crease, the speed of thoir work, but
with little success so far. After two
days spent -ntircly upon the report
of the technical committee. President
Hymans of the assembly today made
an earnest appeal to the delegates
10 cut the'r remarks short.
Pitsident Hymans held over the
heads of the delegates the menace
of two sessions dailp and advancing
the hour of the morning session by
half an hour. A number of the dele
gates have arranged to Lnue Geneva
Fi'day or Saturday of next week.
Meantime, theie remains to be dis
posed of the report of the commit
tee 011 the admission of tiVnv states
and also disarmament, mandates and
the intermit ional court, besides a
number of smaller questions.
