'TdagY--We have a prudent Solution of American Wheat Problem? A SHINGTON.--Solutlon of the wheat problem lies along two lines---the aJust- meat of production to American needs if the world market is overtmpplied from other producing countries at lower prices than are sat- Isfactory to the Ame'lcan producer ander prevailing conditions, and the development of an improved marketing system. These suggestions were made in a rtort to the President, made public by Eugene Meyer, Jr., managing director, aml Frank W. Mondell, director, of the War Finance comporatlon, who have completed an investigation under in- structions of the President of condi- tions in certain wheat-growing areas. The development of an improved marketing system, in the opinion of Mr. Meyer and Mr. Mondell, can be brought about by the organization of the producers of the country for the purpose of marketing their wheat under the co-operative marketing plan, making It unnecessary to rely so com- pletely upon the uncertain functhm- ing of the speculative public contract market. The report expresses strong opposi- tion to the various proposals looking to an Increase in the tariff on wheal government priqe fixing and govern- merit purchase of "surplus" wheat. It comments on but does not go on rec- ord regarding proposed distributing of $58,0(Y0,000 said to have been made as profit by the United States Grain cor- poration, and modification of the pres- ent Immigration laws so as to provide for selective admllon of a larger sup- ply of labor.  On the matter of returning the so- called profit of the grain corporation the report says it has no accurate is- formation on the subject, and with re- spect to modification of the immigra- tion laws the report says that senti- meat in this direction is almost uulvet  sal among the agricultural commtmi- ties vLslted. The report reflects the fact that the condition of the wheat farmers Is Im- proving under presentocondltions be- cause of 'the readjustment taking place. Conferences on the wheat situation with farmers and farm organizations, state departments of agriculture and agricultural colleges, city and country bankers and leading business men de- veloped many points of view. They were held at Chicago, Minneupolis, St. Paul, Sioux Fails, S. D. ; Fargo, N. D. ; Billings and Helena. Mont.; Spokane, Wash.; Portland, Ore.; Pocatello, Ida- ho, and Denver. Would Sell Germany Wheat on Credit RESIDENT COOLIDGE and Secretary of Agriculture Wal- lace were urged by a delega- tion of Middle-West grain men and bankers to support the so-called Gould plan for furnishing a government credit of $50,000.000 to aid Germany In purchasing 50.000,000 bushels of American wheal Those in the delegation were George E. Marcy of Chicago, president of the Armour Grain company; W. E. Gould, banker of Kewanee, Ill., and the an- thor of the Gould plan; Charles E. Lewis of Minneapolis and George A. Roberts of Omaha. Under the Gould plan the War FI- nance corporation would be authorized to make advances to American export- era to finance purchases of wheat and ram by Germany or other foreign gov- ernments. German obligations would be accepted by the War Finance cor- poration as security for a long-term loan. According to sponsors of the plan, Germany will purchase 50,000,0OJ bushels of wheat d a long-term credit basis, and thus dispose of the bulk of the wheat surplus of the United States, with the result that the price of wheat In this country will advance materially. The Gould plan was embodied in bills introduced in congress in the last session which met defeat before oppo- sition of Eugene Meyer, Jr., managing director of the War Finance corpora- tion, and others. The scheme for disposing of the wheat surplus proposes that the 50,- 000,000 bushels should be taken from different sections of the country, 30,- 000,000 bushels to come from the states east of the Rockies. 10.{K0,000 bushels from the Pacific coast and 10.- 000.000 bushels of durum wheat. One- third the wheat would be In flour. All would be American grown and all the flour would be ground in American mills. It is proposed that a percentage would be shipped in shipping board veels and the remainder in German vessel s. Hear). A. Snow of Oakland, Cal.

Charges brought against Snow are : That he ran down big game 'n an automobile taking moving pictures af the. fleeing animals until they fell, unable to move, from exhaustion. That he wounded wild animals so that, while they writhed in agony, he cOuld take "cpse-up" pictures of them wthout Injury to himself.

No More War; Society Does Not Approve Major Henry Reed Hatfleld of 1725 Walnut street, Philadelphia, has re- turned trlamphant from his European mlaaio. In a word or two Major Henry Reed Hatfleld was a "social am- bassador." The title, like the mission, is his own. The purpose to which he has dedicated himself Is nothing leu han world peace. There must be" Major Henry Reed Hatfleld points out, ome omnipotent force, recognized In every civilized land, if world peace ia to be attained. That omnipotent.force" recognbd la every civilized land, Is Society. So Major Henry Reed Hatfleld sailed for Europe as social ambassa- dor. The vital questions at which dip- lomats and politicians shy Major Hen- ry Reed Hatfleld ha discussed frank- ly aug settled finally with the elite of Paris, London, Berlin, Vienna and such of those of Moscow and Petro- grad as he found sojourning la Geneva and other enforced domiciles. Not only did he dlscflsa these questlo frankly with the aristocracy of Edrope, the only people who really court, but he set- tied those questions and formed an informal citizens' league for peace. Diplo- mats and politicians henceforth are powerless. They may blunder into war, but there will be no war. for society--in[ernatlonal societywill not coun- tenance it. ....

There will be aerial battles, nnder- sea battles, destroyer, fast cruiser and dreadnaught engagements, as well as landing battles in which a complete fa'ce of marines will be involved, all- aviation and signal corps branch.s of that arm of the naval establishment. New scouting cruisers, fastest naval vesss afloat, and the I6-incit Cun drdnaughts will participate among the 150 naval craft that will make up the units in these war games. The Pacific fleet, under Admiral S. S. Robinson, known Am the United Stat battle fleet, will leave about January 4. Tbis embraces the battle- ship divisions, the destroyer squadrons, submarine divlsiona, aircraft divisions and fleet base force. The Atlantic forces, known as the scouting fleet,' will leave the east coast at the same time the Pacific units leave Lem Angeles, and upon reaching Panama will engage in a combined war game with the Pacific units. The scouting fleet consists of battleship dlvisioas, deetroyer squadrons, air squadrons, train forces and a control force, and Is under ePmmand of Vice Admiral N. A. McCully. Admiral Robert E. Coontz will be in active command of the winter ma- neuvers. Gen. Jan Christian Smuts. premier of South Africa, emerged from the peace conference in Paris the ac- knowledged equal in intellectual and moral qualities of any participant In the treaty of Versailles. He has now bulked large In te imperial confer. enee in London of the British empire. England credits the South African premier with having forced the hand of Premier Baldwin of Great Britain in the matter of the new attempt to adjust conditions on the continent, by declaring in a speech that arrange- ments were being made for an inter- national oanference on reparations. The address by General Smuts, in which he appeals to the conscience of the world to redeem the chaotic European situation, is rightly to be regarded as an inspiring document In the realms of both diplomacy and mo- rality. '* General Smuts bluntly refused to give Indian ttlers in South Africa political rights. He held that they could not make a distinction between India ns and Africans. ]lll]lll I Jl A./ $1I .....
