Washington, May 25. Japan is
withdrawing gold from the United
States at a rate which has caused con
siderable interest and somi specula-.
tion as to the meaning of Hie move

been withdrawn since January 1 and
other withdrawals are expected in the
Officials here feel' that the move
ment is not fully accounted for by the
balance of Irade. The possibility that
some Of the other allied governments
are paying their munitions bills to
Japan with gold in this country, made
available by the extension of credits
by this government has been dis
cussed, tiatJt is believed that this con
tingency likewise would not accourit
for the strong current of gold ship

The gold supply at San Francisco,
from which shipments to Japan are
made, has at present reached a point
where the government has decided
that the . cost . of transferring gold
across-the. country properly should Is
borne by the interests intending to
ship it out of the country. In addition
the retention here of the increased
gold supply' hugely accumulated dur
ing the war it regarded as highly de
sirable and its exportation is discour

Senator Says There Is Real
Shortage and Little Hoard."
ing of Cereal by the-
Washington, May 25. Considera
tion of. the first administration- food
bill, designed - to stimulate produc
tion, provide for a national food cen
sus and sales of seed at cost, was
begun today lit the senate and will
he kept before t(je body as the un
Senator Kced opened the debate
with "a statement of the real condi
tion of the wheat situation." Much
false information, he said, was being
furnished to the country. He first
took up prices which farmers re
ceive for their wheat.
No Abnormal Hoarding.
"There ' has been no abnormal
hoarding of wheat," Senator, Reed
declared, adding that it was only
after the supply was low that the
prices became high. Senator Reed
quoted figures to show a world
shortage of 100,000,000 bushels j and
an artificial shortage amounting to
approximately J00,000,000 bushels, due
in part to the shutting off of Russia
because of the war and a lack of
ships io carry wheat from Australia.
"Large future purchases by the
allies, were in his opinion, senator
Reed said, . "responsible for a Ixrge
measure in the rapid rise of prices.
The allies, he said,' had in all good
faith, bought from 100,000,000 to 150,
000,000 bushels for future delivery, but
there were not enough transport
facilities. The, allies, finding tiny
could not get ilie wheat across the
seas, sold part of their holdings and
bought more futures. This, Senator
Keed said, - resulted in them taking
virtuall ya.xoiUrel of the market.
"I do iot jchargc the allies with
gambling," Ije explained.
Senator Reed said such a condition
could lc remedied by negotions be
tween the government and the allies
putting an end to tli situation.
Says Hoover. Causes Ad-;;;-?, -
Senator Reed said another cause for
the recent advance in the price of
wheat was the statement attributed to
Herbert C. Hoover -that flour may
advance to $20 a barrel and wheat to
J3 a bushel.
"Hoover haV. been worth millions
of dollars thus far to llie bulls," the
Missouri senator said, adding that
Americans must expect to pay high
prices as long as government officials
announce to the world that it is about
to starve to death. Consideration of
a "food dictator" and the hparding of
food by housewives had lielped to
raise prices, also ,
"We must regulate by law and not
by lodging arbitrary power in one
man'a hands." declared Senator Sher
man of Illinois, republican. "You
can't atop gambling in bread wheat
as long as there is one bushel of
wheat on the market."
In the liouse, where debate was pro
ceeding at the same time, Republican
Leader Mann .assailed 'Assistant Sec
retary Vrooman of the Department of
Agriculture, for saying that the time
might come when the XJnited States
would be grinding potatoes. for flour.
Mr. Mann said such statements were
Representative Lever of South
Carolina, in charge of the bill, retort
ed that a food administrator is abso
lutely necessary. Representative
Emerson of Ohio declared that the
greatest menace and greatest criminal
was the "food baron.

Condrx Saya Congress Success.
"The first Nebraska Stale Confer
ence on the Conservation of Foods
has been a success," said Dr. C. E.
Condra, chairman. i 1
"The brainiest men of Nebraska
men who knew many things and men
who knew one thing better than any
other one man in the state have been
here for three days. . Each has con
tributed his best.
; "There has been brought out at this
meeting information that is good for
us to know. Every man here, and
every one who has been reading the
newspapers, is better informed as to
Nebraska and' Nebraska's problems
than ever before.
"We have developed a mast of in
formation which will give the State.
Defense Council something tangible
upon which to work. That council
will now know the difficulties it has
to meet and what weapons it has in its
hands with which to meet them. In
other words, what it is up against"
The resolution! of the poiicy com
mittee were passed without a dis
tenting vote although a "row" was
only narrowly escaped, according to
Dr. Cdndra. -.
"When 1 went to bed at 5 o'clock
this morning, after working 111 night
long as a member of the committee
on resolutions, I firmly intended to
come to this convention and fight the
passage of those resolutions," lie told
the congress, just before the resolu
tions were - presented. "But, after
sleeping oarer' the matter, I have de
cided that these resolutioni are all
'Tight and I intend voting for their
passage in their entirety. 1 also ask
my friends in the congress to do like

and spoke as follows:
"I know fhat this congress has ac
complished work that f dpviiot believe
any other body in Nebraska could
have performed." The cream of the
patriotic response of the state was
here. The whole idea was 'how can
we -make a United effort to help our
country?' I amWe the defense coun
cil cannot do all the work it is called
upon to perform unless it can use
the individual work of the people of
this ttate, It is Only by using such
agencies that the National Defense
council can do its work. - We must
have a steering wheel to the machine,
no matter how fine the machine. This
defense council must have the united
effort of this great state. You may
be sure that when such a response
is made Nebraska is going to perform
its full duty towards the nation."
