Uppoeeg Quota Mr. McKelvie has maae it clear that his country is definitely align ed against the quota system. Russia wants her old position as the leading what exporting nation and the Danubian states whose production fell off during the war support her. The opposition is likely to include Canada, Argen tina and Australia. Russia Not Definite The Russian statement, signed by Isidore Lubimoff, does not com mit the delegation to any definite proposal, but rather places the re sponsibility for success or failure of the conference with the large exporting countries, including the United States. "It is necessary to emphasize/' the statement said. 't'hat the es tablishment of a scheme based on quotas can be acceptable only if the largest wheat exporting coun tries will participate. The other delegates declined to comment W the import of that paragraph. Repudiate Definite statement referred to Rus s j a ' s willingness to accept a quota system and said, "but it must be realized that our wheat i one of the main sources for covering our liabilities in connection with our • . _ j arlommtA for sports, and adequate credits lor financing wheat which must be tpm etorV in Russia must be TionnHintion nf the McKelvie vSv definite * ° rnr .f prenrp „rmrdincr to the The conference^a ^ , dispatches met Friday late and ^ ned V 1 A? dT ^! ^ ensi pi 311 .. s Saturday morning, May a. un Saturday the conference deadlock f ov . er the . acreage reduction or American plan, or the quota ex port or the Danube plan. ^position from Canada and Australia as well as the United j States forced the abandonment of the quota scheme.

These experts will meet in London later to attempt to draft an agenda which will permit international operation in meeting the situation. Nil-; Olson of the U. S. depart-} ment of agriculture will be this American representative on committee. Altho the conference repudiated e acreage reduction idea, Me Kelvie was optimistic and said idea was a step in the right direc tion, and that "if we had only dis cussed these problems without reaching an agreement our would be abundantly worth while." The clause in the agreement lating to acreage reduction the subject of varied interpreta tion.. "The conference considers that wherever possible, reduction areas devoted to wheat should undertaken in whatever way each country considers to be most fective* and practical," it read. The agreement said nothing a bout "orderly marketing" but in conference following ad a press 1 journment Chairman Howard Fer , guson of Canada said the partici pating nation all had agreed to it. THE PLAN Under terms of the proposed Information clearing house, all countries will be asked to submit figures in production, planting, movement of stocks and kindred subjects. Mr. McKelvie said such an in formation bureau, supplying accur ate figures, would do much to clear up the present situation for wheat traders. O'NEAL IS SKEPTICAL Washington, May 23.— Agricul tural leaders tonight placed little confidence in"the agreement at the international wheat conference to reduce acreage wherever possible or in the ability of nations to en force such a program. Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Feder ation—the largest and most pow erful agricultural (business) or ganization in the world—said the scheme was not popular even in thi country which recommended it to the conference. THE LOGIC OF IT O'Neal said the economic logic in a smaller wheat acreage was excellent but that its principles ran counter to human nature and the processes of government. Oth er farm leaders concurred in this belief. National farm thought friendly toward the plan of the conference to maintain a secretar iat to act as a clearing house of information on wheat and toward the reported support of an "or derly marketing" program. The latter fits into this govern ment's farm relief measure as em bodied in co-operative marketing and the former merely proposes to do on an international scale thmg the United States has been doing through the department ot agriculture for numerous crops un der congress' extension of the for »< was a eign crop reporting service of bureau of agricultural economics., FARM BOARD SILENT No comment was forthcoming from the Farm Board. Cnairmiu. uîTret^ Ot a d"te' gation. TWO PER CENT DECREASE The indicated wheat acreage in 19 countries including the intended spring wheat acreage of the Unit ed States and Canada, and the es timated area of winter wheat in these and 17 other countries ex clusive of Russia and China estimated by the government today at 181,865,000 acres, compared with 185,278,000 acres lat year. This represents a decrease of about two per cent in the countries contributing three-fourths of the total world acreage outside of Rus sia and China.

Donald Keogh, with his playmate had left the hall and were playing with the care less abandon of small boys and had ran down the street to the front of Mike's place. Grant, who had brought his wife and family to the graduation program and was at tending it himself, was called by phone by R, J. Coughlin of the Westland Oil Co. who was at Grant's farm home and was an xious to see him on business, driv ing through from Minot.. Grant told his wife that he was: going to the farm and that he! would be back for her, and went to his car which was parked about 150 feet north of the point where the accident occurred, backed away from the curb, started south and had just thrown the gear into high} when the boy appeared in front of him. He threw on the brakes but hit the boy on the right hand side of the car. The accident cast a shadow over the festivities at the hall and brought sorrow and grief to Allan Keogh and his parents and sisters on the night of his first triumph. Grant was paralyzed by the fortunate accident. Coroner Fulker son conld not do much Wednesday evening so be returned to Plenty wood. and Thursday morning he and Coroner Martin Nelson, Coun tv Attorney Bakewell and Mrs. Bakewell. and the county attor ney's stenographer accompanied by Deputy Sheriff Bob Smith, to Outlook to hold ap ipquest Deputy Coroner Fulkerson had felt that an inquest tm wort was unneces theisary but Grant had insisted on one being held.

One of the wit resses, O. D. Hendrick of Zahl, N. Dak., who was visiting at the Goodlaxon home, and a stranger, was standing by when Grant left the curb and saw the accident * when it happened. Donald Keogh was the third son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Keogh who have resided at Outlook for a num ber of years. Besides Donald there arc four children: Allan. Noel, Bet -1 ty Lou and Rose Mary.

Stone of the federal farm board, with Sec. of Agriculture Hyde, gave orders to the American delegates to the May 19 wheat conference In Lon don to advocate a policy which the administration privately admits will faq —* policy of reduction wheat acreage throughout the en tire world. The American delegates propos ed that all countries undertake propaganda campaigns to induce grain growers in their own coun tries to plant less wheat. Stone and Hyde realise that this propaganda has failed in the Unit ed States in the past 18 months and they do not seriously expect the European countries or Austral ia, Canada or Argentina to achieve anything Important thru It. Pallure is anticipated because the governments can do no more than give advice to the owners the land, as to what crops »bail be planted. Soviet wheat planting will be steadily increased, mean while, since' the Russian govern ment needs wheat as a commodity for barter to other countries for the industrial and farming ery she must have. may part 1 Panic Affect« Death Rate at- - at^ does of a in New York —FP— While the con tinues low, according to the state department of health, the effect the panic is shown in the kinds deaths reported.
