PLANNING TO MAINTAIN
GUARANTEED WHEAT PRICE
Washington, December 88,- Leg
islation to make effective the wheat
price guarantee for the 1919 crop
and at tho same time to safeguard
the government against losses was
recommended to . congress today by
the Department of Agriculture and
the food administration.
A memorandum sent to Repre
sentative Lever of South Carolina,
chairman of the house agricultural
committee, made the following
First —Extension by congress be
yond Juno 1, 1920, of the date for
the government purchase of the 1919
Second— Continuance of the food
administration's grain corporation,
or creation of a new agency to buy,
store and sell 1919 wheat that may
be offered to the government, and
Third—Possible legislative pro
visions to protect the government
against wheat or flour brought in
from other countries during the per
iod of effectiveness of the guaran
teed prise and also to protect buyers
of such wheat as long as the wheat
is in this country and not consumed.
The memorandum was compiled
with the approval of President Wil
son and Secretary Houston, in sub
mitting it, said: "Tho government
has made a guarantee and it goes
without saying that it. must be made
effective." _, '
Regarding the extension of the
date of the government purchase, the
"it would be Impossible to carry
out the guarantee as it is intended by
June 1. 1920, and, if producers can
not soli their wheat to the United
Staes before that date and are left,
with wheat on hand, it will be felt
that, the obligation of the United
states has not been carried out In
"The government purchasing
agency," the memorandum sets forth,
"must have ample funds at. all times
to purchase throughout the United
Stales at the guaranteed prices such
wheat of the J9 19 crop as may be
offered to it, and also to provide
storage facilities to lake care of the
same by lease or purchase of facili
ties now in existence, or by building i
additional facilities, or both. I
'"The application will have to he
on a basis to enable the guarantee
price to be maintained at all times
by purchase of wheat with funds pro
vided by the government ami without
relying on oatside credit."
The food administration grain cor-
I oration is maintaining the pric ) for
the 19IS crop with its capital of
$150,000,000 and its credits, com
bined with the export demand for
wheat. The 1918 crop is estimated
at 917,100,000 bushels, and on No
vember 20, list, the movement from
the farm amounted to 588,000,000,
of which 254,000,000 was in storage.
"It will be observed," said the
memorandum sent to congress today,
"that, there is a very large amount of
the 1918 (Stop yet to be moved from
the farms, and it will take all the
resources of the grain corporal
and the most careful atention to
every detail to carry out the guaran
teed price for the crop of 1918. In
fact, if the export demand should
diminish, it may ne necessary that
there be a further appropriation by
The carrying out of the guaran
teed price for the 1919 crops presents
a much more difficult situation, 't
was pointed out, because tho winter
wheat acreage is about 9,000,000
acres larger than that for 1918 and
if an increase in spring wheat is
planted, the harvest of 1919 may be
in excess of that of 1918.
Export of 1918 wheat is estimated
at about 310,000,000, a larger fig
ure than can be expected for the
1919 crop,? because of shipments
from Canada, Australia, India and
Argentina. ' Domestic consumption
of the 1919 crop, including the seed
wheat reserve, the memorandum
stated, can not exceed 640,000.000
bushels as a maximum. The possible
1919 crop was fixed at 1,114,500,000
bushels, of which 90,000,000 would
in- for seed requirements, 550,000,
--000 bushels for domestic consump
tion, leaving 474,500,000 for export.
Tho 1919 crop for export, lt was
pointed out, might sell in competlton
with that from other countries at a
prico considerably lower than 'he
guaranteed price, which probably
would result in similar reductions at
