crop on their farms by resolutions
adopted today by representatives of

session at the capltol, and a com
mittee headed by A. It. Campboll
of Geary was appointed to confer
with hankers of the stato to work
out a plan of financing tho crop
until it can be marketed.
John A. Whltohurst, president of
tho state hoard of ngrlculturo, pro
vided at tho meeting.
"It will be necessary to storo the
crop on tho farm this year not only
because of the Impending shortago
of cars to move tho crop to markot,
but also hecauso prices enrly In tho
market season most certainly will bo
far less than tho cost of production."
Whitehurst declared. "I'rlces will bo
low because of tho romoval of federal
restrictions on tho market, hecauso
of the low rate of foreign exchango
and because of Juggling with tho
market by foreign buyers."
ItcxilulloiiH Adopted.
Resolutions adopted unanimously
' "An emergency exists which
threatens the economic and financial
stability of ntir state and demands
