Wheat May Be Deciding
Factor In The Election
Short Crop, Ruaaia’a Return as Importer and Russo-Jap.
anese Situation May Send Wheat Prices Skyrocket
ing and Re-Elect H oover Next November
BY ROGER W HABSON,
Copyright 1932, sMlshrrs Financial
Babson ark Mass., May 21. Keep
an eye on the wheat situation. It may
hold the key to our coming national
elections and may have a decided in
fluence upon business. While it is too
early to gauge accurately the out
come of this year's total crop, recent
reports do show probabilities of out
standing shortage in winter fheat. As
suming normal growing conditions
over the remainder of the season, win
ter wheat output will be only 440 mil
lion bushles, or 44 per cent lower
than last year, and 20 per cent be
low the five-year average. The spring
wheat crop may be somewhat larger
than last year if the weather is fa
vorable. but the United States’ total
wheal crop for 1932 is likely to he
short. Although there is now a large
visible over-supply on hand in the
world. Russia is likely this year to be
a buyer rather than a seller. The
Soviet agricultural program is in dire
distress and food shortages will neces
sitate buying foreign wheat.
A striking parallel exists between
the present situation and that in the
great depression of 1893-1896. The far
mers were then making the same de
mands as today for Hat currency,
silver monetization, and other direct
inflation measures. Wheat i 3 now sel
ling at 50 cents a bushel. In August.
1396, it was selling at 53 cents. Then
came news of a big crop failure in
India, which, coupled with lower crop
reports here, caused a scramble for
wheat that sent prices soaring. The
price rose to 70 cents by September
1896, and to 94 cents by election time.
McKmlev and (he Repablicans rode
to victory on the wave of improveu
farm sentiment. Incidentally the im
provement in wheat dragged with it
the Jprice of other farm products,
greatly helping to end the depres-
Also Were Duped
Hi v ‘‘ .:
Dean H. Dobson-Peacock, top, and
Rear Admiral Guy H. Burrage,
briow, unwittingly were dupes of
John Hughes Curtis, Norfolk ship
builder, who has confessed to per
petrating a cruel hoax on the
Lindbergh family by fabricating
a story of his contacts with the
kidnapers of the Lindbergh baby.
The churchman and retired ad
miral were both stunned by
Curt**’ statement made-Biter po
But Jacob became homesick for his old home and
began to plan his return. However, he feared to
meet Esau and planned to win his favor by send
ing ahead great flocks as gifts to please 'his
akin. Will history repeat itself in
1932? No one can tell; but the situa
tion Is well worth watching.
Factors To Watch.
Sensational damage has undoubt
edly been done to the new domestic
winter wheat crop. Although the
spring wheat plantings will probably
be larger than the acreage harvestel
last year, even a good crop of spring
wheat would not compensate for the
loss in the winter yield. Leaders in
both politics and business will watch
growing conditions with keenest in
terest this season. A drought or ex
cessive rainfall could easily mean that
we would produce no more than we
need and perhaps be forced to draw
on our reserve supplies. Also watch
carfully the growing hostility between
Russia and Japan. Should actual
fighting begin, Russia would not only
be unable to export wheat but would
be forced to import it In large suan
tities. Russia is .already making pur
chases In Australia, Canada, and the
Argent inei Remember (that It w%s
Russia two years ago that completely
upset the Farm Board’s plans by
dumping wheat la the United States,
Now, with Russia a buyer instead of
a selle rand with the lower American
ctop prospect, tse United States
should be able to work off consider
able of our wheat surplus. The Eu
ropean season is suite late this year.
While crops in the Argentine and
Australia are fairly good, these coun
tries are not now pressing sellers. Al
though world finances are still very
discouraging. Europeans must eat.
and unless there occurs a sudden
change in foreign crop prospects, Eu
rope must turn to North America
for Increasing supplies. Another fac
tor to watch is the Farm Board mar
keting. Chairman Stone recently said
that if effective financing -aere ar
ranged he could sell 15 million to 25
million bushels of -wheat and front
500 thousand to a million bales of cot
ton before the end of the present
crop year. It is possible that Congress
may pass some export financing mea
sure for farm products that would
help. Also note that France, Italy, and
Germany have recently relaxed their
embargoes on imported wheat. France
is now allowing 40 per cent of her
annvial consumption to come in as
against three per cent before.
Farmers have come to the con
clusion that no amount of credit re
lief will do them any good. Many feel
they have already had joo much
credit. What is desperately needed is
a rise in farm prices. Ail the bills
now In Congreps in behalf of the far
mers are directly aimed at raising
prices. Even though the farm bloc
holds the balance of power, the farm
ers themselves are unable to agree on
any single plan of legislation. One
organized group favors the equaliza
tion fee; another just as powerful, is
firmly set on the debenture plan; and
a third wants stabilisation of the dol
lar through the Goktsborough bill.
Still another group wants direct In
flation o fthe currency through green
back Issue. This division Os opinion
may easily prevent any of these bills
from becoming law. In the meantime,
other forces, entirely outside of Con
gress, may accomplish a rise In farm
prices irrespective of legislation.
Just as It was In the rise in wheat
that saved McKinley in 1896 after
four years of terrible depreenlon. and
as it was drought and a rise in wheat
that assisted CooUdge in 1934, so it
may be a Russian shortage, possible
Russo-Japanese warfare, and a short
wheat crop in the nlted States that
may raise prices and reotoct Hoover
in 1932. I am merely pointing oat pos
sibilities based on study of the facts.
I am not forecasting that wheat will
go skyrocketing this year. One de
pressing factor will be the tendency of
farmers to market the new crop ail at
the same time, beeauee they badly
need cash. Another is the hundred
million bushels or more of -Farm
Board wheat hanging over the mar
ket. Should, however, events ■ trails
