FIXING WHEAT PRICE
Head of Macaroni Factory
Says Other Actioi Playing
Into Hands of Spec

(President Skinner Mfg. Co.)
If present prices cwheat are justi
fied by a present or prospective short
age in supply, the government made
serious mistake in not taking over
the supply when wheat passed the
$1.50 per bushel price.
By allowing manipulation to bring
prices where they are today, the gov
ernment has absolutely played into
the hands of speculators and has made
tjie public sutler; only speculators
Not one farmer m a thousand who
raised wheat last year or the year he
fore, even considering present high
prices, actually received more than

a profitable crop at $1 a bushel and as

Heavy Sales Result.
Heavv sales always result from ris
ing prices. When the public see prices
advance they buy for the future. In so
buying the consumers make business
good for the manufacturer, whole

time they play info the hands "of the
speculators who 4 re only interested

If the government would at once
put a price on wheat of $1.60 a bushel
it would stop hoarding of food prod
ucts. This price would give more
than. a liberal profit to the farmer who
raises the wheat, in fact, give him
about 60 cents a bushel more than
he as a rule expects, and the only
harm that would he done, if it can be
called harm, would be to the specu
lator who devotes his energies to
gouging the public.
Such a move on the part of the gov
ernment should have the entire sup
port of every manufacturer who in
any way uses wheat and also the
support of everv wholesaler and re

wholesaler and retailer would find
sales curtailed temporarily. However,
on goods sold they would make the

and would have the satisfaction of
knowing that the consumer would be
getting square and honest treatment.
Prompt Action Needed.
Prompt action on the part of the
government to 3et the price of wheat
at $1.60 a bushel or lower, is to the
interest of every business man and
every individual In the United States
with the exception of those who are
speculating in wheat.

every wholesaler, every manufacturer
and every pubtisher to see that the
public is protected bv this condition
being righted at once. If present con-
cttions can be given the proper pub
licity action will be taken.
No one seems to be positive just
what is the present supply of wheat
in this country. If there is an actual
shortage, conditions will continue to
go from bad to worse, and by delay
ing action only speculaors will profit
while in the end those who are well-to-do
will have an over supply of
wheat products while the middle
classes will be unable to purchase at
all. Certainly such a condition de
mands drastic treatment.
Large Users of Durum. ,
The Skinner Manufacturing com
pany operates the largest macaroni
factory in America, and, we believe,
is the largest user of pure Durum
wheat flour in this country. We are
at all times in close touch with all
large millers and our trade letteri to
wholesale grocers tor the past year
will show that we have continually
from thirty to sixty days in advance,
predicted the market accurately. How
ever, we nave earnestly nopea that
wheat manipulators would not have
the nerve to put the price where it it
today and we have felt that without
any prodding on the part ot the pub
lic that even before present prices
were reached the government would
take drastic action and put the
price of wheat around $1.60 per bush
el, where it should be.
Personally, we do not believe that
there is an actual shortage.
When the great crash comes, which
the present conditions are sure to
bring, it is doubtful if the farmer
would set S1.5U from hit wheat on
the fall market. So if the government
would place a price of $1.60 a bushel
on wheat it would not only atop
manipulation and make it a case
simply of supplying the demand, but
would be doing the farmers a real
