Mr. liujncs said it was his convii tion that the present system of grain marketing through open exchanges, by maintaining a highly competitive mar ket. at alll times, worked to tho advan tage of l|oth producer and consumer, and that future trading was beneficial in that it furnished insurance for trad ers against destructive losses on com mitment»! which would bo taken in wider margins of profits without ex change hedging. he expressed Points Sound Marketing Moves. He urged the development of a bet ter understanding of "the great ex changee and cooperation with them in developing their full service and olini inating t|hieir defects and abuses," and commun tied the committee for its tem per to 'Jay aside prejudice and pre vious conceptions to learn the truth about basic facts on sound marketing." Touching upon recent declines in wheat prices, which some agricultural interestik of the country have claimed are unwarranted by the existing sup ply and demand, Mr. Iturmw said the wheat producer had "escaped the full effect of deflation'' because of the "cushion" found in future trading. Wheat Comparatively High. He .cited figures tending to show Unit the decline in wheat front the peak post war price to the current, level lias been etily 18 per cent, as against a decline of 68 per cent In po tatoes, for which there is no exchange marketj Similar comparisons reveal declines of ifif, per cent In cotton, 47 per cent In beans and 46 per cent In bi'aiis and 46 .per cent in iburley, the » statement said. Indications that the deflation is world-wide in character and not confined to American farm products alone, Mr. -Barnes said, was found In the 1 fact that Imported, flarm commodities such as sugar and coffee fell off from 61 to 66 per cent during tho same period. In answer to a question from a com mittee member as to whether It would be feasible for producers to market their own crops, Mr. Barnes said the preset t system maintained a lower trade (toll between producer and con sumer than would be possible in any systeqi which eliminated hedging and that in his opinion any organization of farmers for price fixing would not be decreed just by the American public. Scores Monopoly Cooperation. Particular emphasis was given the statement that cooperative efforts of producers in local territories to elimi nate Unfair (practices where monopo lies existed were not to be confused with a nationwide marketing system which would itself constitute a mon opoly Tbe former, Mr. Barnes de clared, is sound in economic principles and Will succeed, while the latter is not sound in that it seeks to establish market influences other than the fun damental laws of supply and demand.
