he handles big problems as well a« iit

gains the impression that he is fitted
mentally, temperamentally and by
training, no less than physically.
Barnes has grown up in the grain
trade. Jle developed his own con

however, his firm withdrew' from busi
ness for the period of the war and

of the food control bill, and is now at
the head of the corporation upon
which the real work of stabilizing
prices and distribution of wheat and
flour will rest.
