—''war). /
“3. That said corporation shall
have full power to buy and sell wheat
grown in the U. S., the entire crop
if necessary.
Capital Sufficient
“The proposed capital is sufficient.
Co-operative concerns without any
capital are now borrowing €5 percent
*' of the value of wheat. In Canada dur
ing the World War, the farmers were
advanced at the time of delivery 65
percent by the government, and the
balance at the end of the crop mar
keting year. In this way the wheat
farmers themselves can largely fi
nance the operation as the banks will
loan, as now, 65 percent of the value.
“You will observe it is. the purpose
to sell the exportable surplus abroad
at the best prices obtainable, using
orderly methods of marketing. Then
sell the balance for United States
consumption for the world level of
prices plus 30 cents, the amount of
the tariff. This would yield for the
wheat farmers $180,000,000 oVer and
above what they would otherwise
receive. /•
“The saving of $180,000,000 can be
effected without making any special
appeal to farmers for their cooper
ation. That is to say, it is not de
pendent upon their cooperation. It is
believed, however, that with the pres
tige of a big Government institution
like the United States Wheat Cor
poration, the leadership can be such as
to bring about successful acreage re-‘
duction through the cooperation of
the farmers, to the extent of wipiiig.
out the entire United States wheat
surplus. As our United States surplus
is larger than the world surplus, it
would wipe out the world surplus and
.leave a decided shortage. Many be
'lieve this would spell $2.00 wheat. If
any one thinks this plan is tame, they
have another guess coming. In fact, it
has such great potentialities, mem
bers of Congress will probably insist
cn writing into the law provisions to
make it the duty of the directors tp.
plan always to have a reasonable
yvheat surplus in the United States,
and that a maximum price be fixed
at something like $1.50 per bushel.
Handled on World Level
“In working out this plan, wheat
for export and flour for export would
both have to be handled upon the ba
sis of the world level of prices, which
should be made as high as possible
under a system of orderly sales, and
without dumping.
“Stabilization legislation must be
obtained through the approval of
both the President and the Congress.
As between them, President Harding
is undoubtedly the more friendly to
agriculture. If we can’t gd the Pres
ident to call Congress together now,
the chance of getting any kind of
wheat price stabilization at the reg
ular session will be in doubt.”

chinery of the court, th'rf president
‘ “My own sincerity of purpose has
been questioned because I do not in
sist that we shall accept the exist
ing world court provided.
Personally I would vastly prefer the
policy of submitting all cohtrover
. sies in which we are coii<!srrtled the
court as Si sits today, as agaisht any
other agency of settlement yet de
vised. As speaking for
the United States, I am more inter-'
ested in adherence to such a tribunal
in the best 'form attainable than I am
concerned about the triumph of
presidents insistence. The big thing
is the firm establishment of the
court and our cordial adherence
thoreto. All else is mere detail.”
Prefacing his review ef internation
al achievements with the declaration
that “when the present national ad
ministration cSihe
ty world affairs were in a compli
cated and very difficult posture,” the
president said: four main tasks were
undertaken as foHwfti:.
“First, the reestablishment- of peace

derly settleqgsat of those ixujfpsiadt

after-problems of the war which di
rectly involve the United States:
“Second, the protection and promo
tion, amid the chaos of conflicting
national interests, of the just rights
of the United States and the legiti
mate interests of American citizens.
‘‘Third, the creation of an interna
tional situation, so far as'the United
States might contribute thereto,
which would give the best assurance
of peace for the future; and
“Fourth, the pursuit of the tradi
tional situation, so far as the united
cooperation with our sister republic
of the western^ fiemisphere.
Praise' For Hughes
“The eminent success and the far
reaching achievements must have
their ultimate appraisal by American
public opinion,” the executive added,
“but I submit them with unrestrain
ed pride, and sincere tribute to the
historic service of a great secretary
of stale.”
Mr. Harding then proceeded to the
enunciation of international achieve
Taking up first the negotiation of
separate treaties of peace with the
central powers whichx was necessary
as “the peace negotiated by my dis
tinguished predecessor, tho he was
impelled by lofty purposes, had evok
ed a bitter and undying controversy.”
Equitable Peace jObtabwd
The negotiations resulted “in trea
ties which established peace with
those countries on an equitable basis,
and at the same time preserve for
the United States the rights em
bodied in the Paris treaties which we
had acquired through participation
in the common victory.”
Next the executive listed the Ger
man-American treaty providing for
mixed claims commission to deter
mine American claims against Ger
many in connection with which or
ganization he said:
“The extraordinary tribute, un
paralleled in international relation
ships was paid to the American sense
of justice by the suggestion on the
part of Germany that the United
States should appoint an American,
The successful sittlement of the
costs incurred for the maintenance
of the American army on the Rhine,
.listed as another accomplishment,
the president said, had “little about
it all to make sentimental appeal but
it t is a gratifying record of sane busi
ness and the seemly assertion of our
just rights.”
Arms Conference Big Thing
“The outstanding historical, monu
mental achievement is the Washing
ton conference on the limitation of
armament,” Mr. Harding be-_
fore passing k to minor accomplish
ments. “Only a few days ago the
government ef France gave the rati
fication .which makes unanimous the
approval of the nations concerned,
and confirms the dawn of a new era
in international cooperation for world
“The limitation of armament con
ference was significantly triumphant
in two accomplishments: it relieved
and limited the burdens and found a
way to remove the causes of misun
derstandings which lead to war. The
conference proved one of the greatest
achievements in the history of inter
national relations.”
The president enumerated the vari
ous treaties and agreements which*
grew out of the conference and then
'• U. S. Influenced Lausanne
Mr. Harding also pointed to the
■ good offices performed by American
representatives at Lausanne, assert
ing that although “cynical critics
sneered at our ‘unofficial* represen
tatives/’ he was firmly of the belief
that “American influence at Lausanne
played a becoming part, and an' in
fluential part, in making for peace,
when all the world stood in- appre
hension of an aAned conflagration.”
TurningAc iT*tin-America, the chief
executive reviewed a- long list of vic
tories in state craft and of evidences
of good will toward the United States.
Replying to the argument thaOlus
sia should be' recognized by the
United States as a means of alleviat
ing the distress, there, the president'
said: “The establishment of a basis
of permanent improvement in Rus
sia lies solely within the power of
who govern the destinies of
that country, and political recogni
tion prior to correcting- fundamental
errors tends only to perpetuate the
ills from which the Russian people
are suffering.”
Convention a t Watertowb;
South Dakota, to Bring
Many Delegates
Activities of Kiwanis clubs in fif
i ty-three of the most progressive
cities of Minnesota and North and
■ South Dakota during the year will
reach a climax at Watertown, S. D.,
August 9 and 10 when the annual!
convention for the district which
these three states constitute will
be held. The Bismarck Kiwanis
club will figure equally with all o]’
the other clubs of the district in
the business of the occasion and its
delegation will be strictly “in the
swim” not only officially but also
socially and literally, Watertown’s
famous summer resort ef Lake
Kampeska being one of the main
lures attracting the Kiwanians to
the hustling South Dakota city.
District Governor Andrew Pick
ard of Minneapolis and District
secretary Caryl Spiller of St. Paul,
with other officers and committee
members of the district organiza
tion. are preparing a program
which will show the progress Ki
wanis International has made in
this district during the past year.
The convention wilt also afford
delegates and other Kiwanians op
portunity, to hear International
President Edmund P. Arras of
Columbus, Ohio, International Sec
retary Fred Parker of Chicago and
other notables of the Kiwanis or
Automobile caravans carrying
Kiwanians and their ladies from
all the leading cities of the three
states are being arranged. Rail
roads are offering special rates on
the certificate plan and, with many
new Kiwanis clubs in the district,
officers expect this year’s conven
tion to be the largest ever held in
this district.
Additional Unfavorable Crop
Reports Affect Market
Chicago, Aug. I.—Unfavorable
crop reports from the Northwest
