Packer and Grain Buyer Advo
cates Government Price
Fixing for Food.
Chicago, April 10.—J. Ogden Ar
mour'ssuggestion of meatless days and
government control of food stuffs was
said to have influenced a sensational
break on the hoard of trade at the
opening today. Part of the initial loss
was substantially recovered. Wheat
declined 6 cents and provisions from
55 cents to $1.55.
May wheat, which sold at $2.15 last
Saturday, added 5 cents to yesterday's
decline by dropping to $2.02 on early
sales. July sold at $1.80 and Septem
ber at $ 1 .GG■ July corn declined 5
cents, to $1.22. July pork, which closed !
yesterday at $37.35 a barrel, declined
$1.55., J-uly lard dropped $1.50 from
the previous final figures of $20.50.
July ribs lost 5 cents.
His Statement.
Mr. Armour's statement advocating
fixing of food prices by the govern
ment follows:
"Because the time is short and the
situation so dangerous I favor gov
ernment supervision and control of
fdod production and food prices. Let :
us do it before we are compelled to do j
The prices of w'heat, corn, livestock :
and other food products have gotten i
away from any control but that of th
government. Let the government for
instance fix the wholesale price of all
meat products. That would probably
result in an automatic regulation of
all prices from the producer to the con
sumer. If it fulled to do so further
government action might be neces
"Let the government, say, guarantee
to the farmer, a minimum [»rice of
$1 50 a bushel for all the wheat he can
raise. It would be a perfectly safe
thing to do. It would not cost the gov
ernment a cent.
"These are radical suggest ions. But
this is an emergency which nothing
but radical remedies will meet. There
are firms whose profits would be cut
but In the present situation the indi
vidual would have to suffer so long as
benefit to the masses of the people re
"As a measure of conservation, for
example, I should favor the institution
by government edict, If necessary, of
meatless days, one or two a week, such
as they have in Europe. I believe that,
either by law or voluntarily people will
be obliged to stop eating so much meat
during the summer months, especially
if they expect to have a sufficient sup
ply next fall and witner."
A Clear Brain and healthy body are easential
