Secretary Mohler Believes $2
Wheat Guarantee Will Help
Kansas Farmers.
Action of Senate and Council of De
fense Campaign Expected to
Have Good Effect.
Action by the United Slates Senate
In placing a $2 minimum on wheat,
means a record wheat acreage and
millions of dollars to the Kansas
farmers, according to men familiar
with agricultural conditions in this
state. J. C. Mohler, secretary of the
etate board of agriculture, declared
that in his judgment the senate action
would mean the sowing of every acre
possible with the equipment, labor
and power available in the farming
Combining the action of the senate
with the campaign of the state coun
cil of defense, Mohler believes the
state's greatest wheat acreage is cer
tain. Seed wheat is high and every
acre sown In Kansas will probably
receive the best possible care and at
tention. Reports sent, to Topeka by members
of the state council of defense indicat
ed that farmers would refuse to plant
more than a normal wheat acreage
unless the government placed a guar
anteed minimum price on their crops.

The War Is Draining State of Most
of Its Best Physicians,
Say Officials.
When the United States gets Its
fullarmy over to Europe, Kansas will
be exceedingly shy of good physicians
and surgeons. Most of the first-class
doctors and surgeons will be with the
troops. Of all the professions, the
medical men are showing the most
patriotism. They are volunteering by
the hundreds, but still there is a
shortage of surgeons in the army.
Next to common soldiers surgeons are
needed In tho greatest number.
It takes private soldiers and sur
geons to win a war. The outcome
doesn't depend entirely upon the stay
at home farmers, as many of the poli
ticians are now preaching. Many of
the big surgeons of the state have not
only volunteered their services but
have offered to equip field hospitals.
Two Topeka surgeons, Dr. McCllntock
and Dr. Bowen, even offered to estab
lish and run a base hospital, but the
war department has been compelled
to reject all such patriotic otters.
It Is organizing the hospitals, both
field and base, itself, and will permit
no others to be organized in the fu
ture. Early in the war game it did
give authority to one or two sets of
surgeons to organize hospitals, but it
has now changed its policy In that re
spect. Nearly every surgeon of any
consequence In the Btate has offered
his services. The surgeons are not
so particular as to what rank they are
given. They are ready to go in most
any capacity, just so they can go and
the threatened exodus of first-class
surgeons to Europe has caused alarm.
One big Topeka hospital may close
during the war on account of losing
its surgeons and nurses engaged in
war work. It is barely possible that
the hospitals of the big cities will all
have to form a pool to take care of
the home situation during the war.
Next to medical men perhaps the
newspaper profession is furnishing
the most soldiers that is, from the
professions. The training camp at
Fort Riley is filled with newspaper

Plans for a state-wide campaign

Wheat, $125 An Acre. A new high

for $2.36 per bushel, bringing $125 to
the acre. On the same farm a total
wheat acreage of thirty-three acres
