Today at t In oH'.co of t!i'' company p-resident John ('. Fekliardi and Secretary J. (i. Dingle branded the ninior as entirely false and as having arigiiinlcd withoit any found;. Hon whatsoever. "The plant is not even on die mar ket and Is not going to In sold,'' sai I Mr. Dingle, "and I don't see how such a Btory could have been started Our plant is an indi pendent concern, owned iiy 1 ,; lllinuis funnel s." It was also suggested by I he cone started by some local 'person who had a liainnti r out lor the concern and was giving vent to a little fai.sili cation to valise the owners of the iPlanl uiiHysnc.

BARNES REFUSES 10 WHtAT DIRECTOR SEES NO WAY TO PREVENT EUROPEAN POOL EXCHANGE MEN WANT MARK ETS REOPENED FOR SPECULAT ING AND DEALING. Chicago, May 7. Suggestions id' gra.n exchanges tha the l ulled states government Invoke embargo privil eges of the Ijever act, if necessary, to prevent t In? pool of iurolgn govern ments from manipulating1 the t'nited States wheat markets were vetoed to day by Julius 11. Humes, what director who said the proposal "presented un told ditllculties." Mr. Harncs met. -inn l.onrd of Trade representatives, grain dealers, millers, terminal and elevator men to discuss restoration of open markets and fu ture trading after June 1. when the wheat guarantee act expires. The exchange men arc parliculirly apprehensive of the tremendous pow ir exerted by the allien, thru their grain pool and want the government to Insure Its support in blocking for eign manipulation of the market, with undue depression of prices. The conference decided to submit the question of future trading to the exchanges. Mr. Hurnes criticizes the subidd ny plun under which the allies sell Amer ican gruln to their people at less than cost, utitl also the power of the for eign buying pool. 'With all possible sympathy for their ditllculties," he su'd, "we are obliged to conclude under present conditions, the overseas movement, the seasons at which it moves, and the prices to he paid for wheat sold tor export. Prices practically tire dictated by the officials of foreign governments, whose interest lie not parallel to America's own." There are unusual hazards in the way of the return to an open market, he said. SANCTION EMBARGO ON AMERICAN GRAIN SALE DENIED IIEBS'CO? OE Fl CLASS OP 75 10 BE T.
