THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: APRIL 8. 1917.
Story Beaches Omaha that Fed
eral Officials Will Abolish
TO fIX MAXIMUM PRICE
Omaha grain men anticipate the
. possibility of the future, or specula
tiv market, being abolished by the
government. Reports reached the
Omaha Grain exchange, coming from
Chicago, that the federal government
is considering the advisability of or
dering the dosing of the market on
futures and tha,t the next thing In
line !s to be the commandeering of
the grain supplies of the country and
fixing a maximum prices at which
cereals and provisions shall be sold.
Should the government close the
Chicago Board of Trade, it is asserted
that such action would automatically
close every grain exchange in the
country, as the prices'on grain tor ru
ture delivery nade by Chicago gov
erns prices elsewhere.
Local grain men are non-communicative
relative to whether or not the
present grain prices are too high, yet
as a rule they admit that they would
be lower in the event the government
should close the speculative markets,
commandeer surplus stocks and fix
the maximum price at which rsin
and food supplies should be sofa.
While no grain man will permit
I himself to be quoted, a majority of
the local ones assert that it 'would
not cause them any surprise if with
in ten days the government took dras
tic action in reference to all grain

''Robinson Crusoe, Jr.." with At Tol-
Rains and Snows v
Come to Rescue of
Crops of the State
The rain and snow at Omaha
amounted to nearly one-fifth of an
inch up to 7 a. m. Saturday. It ex
tended over all the state except the
extreme west. The highest precipi
tation, according to the weather bu
reau, was .42 of an inch, though the
railroads reported some as high as
It extended over the Dakoras,
Minnesota and as far east as the
Great Lakes; also as far south as
northern Kansas and Missouri. There
were also many points registering
freeiing temperatures over the cbrn
and wheat belt
Railroad men say the rain is espe
cially beneficial now because it
comes right after the sowing of
spring wheat. They believe also that
it will save many a field of winter
wheat,, giving the roots a new start
and probably resulting in a fairly
good crop, where a tew days ago
failure was indicated.
The rain will also start the pastures
in good shape.
Volunteer Third t
' Of Class in Navy
Fifteen of the forty-four senior
medical students at Creighton univer
sity have volunteered their services

geon at a salary of $2,000 a year.
Dr. Norman Sullivan, attached to
the Great Lakes naval training sta
tion, is coming to Omaha Monday to
examine the applicants. Only a physi
cal test will be applied to them. By
special dispensation from the gov
ernment the students will not have to
undergo ah examination into their
knowledge of medicine or surgery.
All the volunteers have had an. aver
age of 85 per cent or over for the
four years they have been at school.
