Denies That I". S. Grain Corporation
'•Will-Try, to Hold Down Market
to Guaranteed Price
M. H. Houser has issued the fol
lowing statement regarding the poli
cies of the U. S. Grain Corporation
in handling this year's wheat crop:
: The writer has just, returned from
the east, where I attended the gen
eral conference of second vice presi
dents of the Grain Corporation.
Just as'soon as. we receive the
various contracts, which will be
MKtiuie the latter pan of this week,
we wi'l Issue a bulletin in which we
will endeavor to give an explanation
of the general policy and function
for the coining year.
I notice in looking over (dippings I
of the Spokesman-Review there j
seemed to be r. great deal of misun
derstanding and apprehension in re- '
gard to this year's operation and the '
guaranteed price under the Presi
dent's proclamation, especially as it
relate*, to the wheat grower of the
Inland Empire. At the time the
sutement .was made by the wheat
director, both Mr. Barnes and myself
thought everyone would fully real
ize and understand that by under
taking to establish a $2 price at Spo-.
tone would seem absurd, it* not ri
diculous, when the $2.20 price at tin-
Coast points reflects six to seven
cents more to the grower per bushel
than a $2 price at Spokane would.
We naturally thought that everyone
-•ho was at all interested in this
"*ork had certainly familiarized
themselves with the President's proc
lamation; nt least we felt they should
have done so before creating any un
necessary and uncalled for* alarm,
and in their zeal and desire to serve
*< interests of the people Si the
'"land Empire they should first get a
""■rect understanding of the facts,
and thereby preclude such short
■i"hted statements.
For the most part this year's op
eretloa is going to be along lines
simllar to those under which wo have
worked for the last two years with
Mmc; distinct advantages to the
grower and which will .also be re
flected to the consumer, especially if
li should become necessary to make
*">' price readjustment, without de
ling in the least from the pro
•*. This will be done either by
m advancing price or premium from
month to month, or a monthly carry
"« allowance to reflect interest and
durance charges, so as to make it
wsjlbie for the interior dealer or
'"•ll"r to at all times pay the farmer

%:->'■', for, . 'he most part through
the old established wheat sections
there was very little, if any abuse.
In fact, so far as complaints reaching
us were concerned during the last
two years, we had as many from lo
cal Interior buyers and in some in
stances farmers* organisations thai
millers and sonic dealt were pay-
Ing more than the government price,
or what they thought they should be
paying, than otherwise.
I also noticed in the Review that
Air. agarden of Montana seemed to
f* el that Mr, Barnes, the wheat di
rector, was using powers to limit the
buying of wheat only to the govern
ment guaranteed price. This is a
grievous mistake. Anyone In the
business, either grain, milling, or ex
pi Ing, is tree to ay lor. or buy
wheat, at any price they see fit so
long as it Is not lower than the gov
ernment guaranteed pi ice. It is one
o,' the primary functions of the grain
corporation to see that to the fullest
extent of 1.1 s ability the guaranteed
price is maintained absolutely at all
times. In fact, nothing would please
the wheal director more than to see
such good marketing conditions at a
fair margin over and above the guar
anteed price that it would become
necessary for us to buy little, if any
wheat. This I think was clearly dem
onstrated last year, especially out
here In the Northwest, as on account
of the drouth the crop movement
started early, yet it was well along
In September before little, if any,
wheat was delivered to the grain
corporation on account of mills and
others buying the grain at better
prices than the Grain Corporation.
Another point 1 would like to
have fully understood is that the
glower at all times will have the priv
ilege of shipping his wheat direct to
the drain Corporation at either Port
land, Seattle, Tacoma or Astoria, or
hrving the interior dealer perform
this service for him on a reasonable
outright 01 commission basis.
1 am very much pleased to know
we will have in this year's operation
either the carrying charge clause in
the contracts, or the advancing
monthly premium, so that the grow
er who can Immediately market his
wheat or who may buy-it, will be
reasonably recompensed for the de
lay, as I have felt the last two year
that this was the only serious diffi
culty confronting the grower and the
proper functioning of the grain cor
poration to reflect fair dealing to the

The Department of Farm Crops re
•'■ pot that '.m per cent of the wheat
■ crop raised in th*.s state in 1918 con
■ sisted of nine varieties, Other vari
■ eties were of only local importance.
Ui, they produced less than ten per
cent of the crop. The nine leading*
| varieties are listed below in the
mdi of the quantity grown:
Variety of 1918 Crop
Bluestem 21.6
Baart 18.8
Marquis 13.7
Jenkins Club 8.9
I Hybrid 128 8.8
Forty Fold 8.2
Hybrid 143 4.'.»
I Red Russian 4.9
Turkey Red 4.1
j The 1919 crop will give a very dif
! ferent percentage distribution on ac
j count of the large Increase of fail
I wheat, but it is safe to predict that
these same nine varieties will still
oduee '.mi per cent of the crop.
' From experiments conducted by
the experiment station for the last
10 years, they have found that Forty
• ,i.l. Hybrid 143 ;nd Red Russian
| might profitably be eliminated. That
Hybrid 128 could take the place of
j Forty Fold and Red Russian In every
section of the state where they are
giown. All factors considered, Hy
brid lis will return more money 'per
acre for the same amount of work,
than either Forty Fold or Red Rus
sian. Where Hybrid 143 is grown
as a fall wheat Hybrid 138 will prove
more hardy and will yield more bush
els per acre. Where M Is used as a
spring wheat. Jenkins Club might
well be substituted. Jenkins Club
lis one of the most common wheats
j under irrigation for both fall and
spring seeding. Bluestem is the
! most widely grown and in general
gives the best satisfaction in all sec
tions of Washington except "in the
dry belt, where Baart ha* almost en
tirely superseded it. Baart, or Early
Baart, as it was first called, is drouth
resistant, and -natures early. It is
the best variety that has yet been
found for regions of 15 inches oi
less 0 rain fall. Marquis has been
Introduced into the Bluestem areas
during the last three years in increas
irfg quantities. Apparently this has
been a mistake, as variety experi
ments show that it yields less than
Bluestem. The farmers are pretty
generally going back' to Bluestem
this year. Marquis seems to be best
adapted to the short seasons and
frosty valleys of the intermountatn
districts, but should not be grown in
the Bluestem areas of the Palouse
country nor In the dry bell of the Big
Turkey Red la & hardy winter
wheat, well adapted to the dry belt,
and is one of the surest, most pro
lific winter varieties known. It is
smut resistant to a high degree, as is
Marquis of the spring varieties.
if the varieties grown i" the state
could he reduced to the nix varieties:
Blueatem. Baart, Marquis, Jenkins
Club Hybrid 138 and Turkey Red,
not only would more total wheal be
produced, but it would help reduce
field mixtures and largely solve the
marketing difficulties, <* there
would then be but four classes, as
Bluestem and Baart take the same
iradei this is also true for Jenkins
Club and Hybrid 128.

"The extent to which the automo- ,
bile has contributed io the wealth of
tin- country in comparison with other I
utilities is shown by a review of the
various stages of our commercial
evolution," says A. it Baker, local
dealer in Chevrolet passenger cars
and trucks.
"From 1790 to 1000 the wealth
of the United States increased from
• 619,200,000 to $88.517,307,000, an
increase of $87,898,107,000.
"From that year until 10 iB, a per
iod of is years, the wealth of the
United states Increased from $88,
--517,307,000 to $250,000,000,000, an
Increase of $161,482,603,000. it la to
be noted that the increase In this
18-year period was practically al
most twice the Increase in the 110
--year period.
"In the years 1900 to 1018, the
principal changes in our commercial
life, were due to the Introduction of
wireless, the beginning of foreign
trade; development and standardisa
tion of manufacturing, and the
manufacture and general adoption of
the automobile for transportation ]
"It has been said, a community ad- !
vances only so far as its transporta
tion facilities allow it to do. If re- '
stricted by certain limits of trans
portation, business growth is re
stricted. This leads to the thought ,
a* to bow much the automobile us a
transportation medium has had to j
do with the very unusual grow»"i in j
the period of litoo to mis.
"While it is true that without the.
automobile there would have been
material development in the country, j
due to the introduction and use of
the many improved utilities anu I
methods, it is obvious that tin; full- i
est value or usefulness of these in- •
novations could not lure been se
cured without the aid of motor-nro
polled vehicles. And so to the auto- 1
mobile is lightly due a major share
of the credit for the development o*
natural resources, the expansion of
our industries and the increase In
wealth, as had been experienced dur
ing recent years."
The muss and dirt of a coal or
wood cook stove add to the burden
of the housewife. Coal dust seems
to get everywhere and it means con
tinual work to keep a kitchen clean
when coal is need in the stove.
"' All this trouble is done away with
vAi'en kerosene is used as a fuel. It
is dean and convenient and makes
far less work for the housewife. In
addition to this, it is more econom
ical than either coal or wood.
A good kerosene like the Standard
Oil company's Pearl oil makes a dis
tinct saving, not only in the house
hold budget but also in the time and
energy of the housewife! Pearl oil
gives excellent results as far as good
cooking is concerned and when it is
used the kitchen never becomes
overheated. A good cookstove with
Pearl oil will hake, broil, roast and
toast, economically.
Having been refined, and re
refined by a special process, the im
purities are removed from Pearl oil
so that, it burns up clean and pro
duces no odor.
