.Washington Bureau of The Omaha Bee
73 Fourteenth Street, N. W.)
(By a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, July 16. (Special
Telegram.) That the organized grain
farmers of America are becoming im
patient over the delay in the passage
of the food control bill became mani
fest when the representatives of 400,
(100 grain farmers wrote a letter to
each United States senator -pressing
passage. T n- ct.
The letter was sent by J. W. short
hill of York, Xeb., secretary of the
National Council of Farmers' Co-operative
"The national council is composed
of state associations of the ten prin
cipal grain growing states, and rep
rsents more than 4.000 farmers' ele
vator companies. They have recently
established national headquarters in
"Grain growers are ready for food
control." says Afr. fehorthill in his let
ter to the senate. "Who is afraid to
place the products of his labor or
Ins genius m the hands of the presi
dent when winning this war makes it
necessary? . i
Alarmed at Outlook. j
"Who is afraid to permit our gov-!
4-rnmcnt to control the product of his !
labor or his genius in order that ruin- j
.us speculation in that product may ;
ho curbed? Certainly not the gram
growers of this country."
Mr. Shorthill further says; i
i "1 note with crave concern the situ
ation which seems to be developing
in the senate in regard to the elimina
tion from House Roll 4961, of all nec
essaries except food and fuels. In
this connection I earnestly solicit
your direful consideration of the fol
lowing suggestions: -
"The grain growers are ready for
food .ontrol. They welcome it. But
it the l'jislation that may be enacted
is going tj appeal to them as being
just, you must comer tne pjwer to
excrcis-! the very same control over
any other necessity when unusual
conditions' demand it. t
"They want no special favors per
mitted to, or conferred up.n any class
by this legislation. They ask no spe
cial privileges for themselvcr; in fact,
they are humiliated by the proposal to
exemp litem from any of the penal
ties of the law, , ,
"In ihL matter the grain growers
of this country now and at the side
of the, president. If the producers of
other products, the miners, the manu
facturers, the merchandisers of other
necessaries will now step up in the
same row, this essential legislation
can be passed in a day.
"We are ready to fight for this
legislation," asserted Mr. Shorthill in
commenting upon the letter.
"The' farmers of our organization
are squarely behind the president in
this work. We welcome food control,
but w e also feel that powers should be
vested in the president for control
over other necessaries than food.
Should Include All Necessaries.
"We are willing for food control
to be first because that is most vital,
but the principle should extend to
other vital necessaries."
Congressman Lobeck after an inter
view with Mr. Hoover last week, said
it was the intention of the food ad
ministrator to invoke a council of
grain mm and representa'!ves of
farmersi for the purpose of ' fixing
an approximate price for grain that
would be fair to grain dealers as well
as to grain producers.
It is understood that Mr.' Hoover
has invited the suggestions of a num
ber of grain dealers of Omaha and
ofher (Jr ain centers for thejpurpose of
ascertaining just what would be an
equitable price for wheat, .oats and
corn. . .A .

Omaha Manufacturers Complain
Of Scarcity of Skilled Workmen
Omaha manufacturers are complain
ing of the difficulty of getting and
keeping skilled men in several lines,
on account of the call to arms. Watch
makers have been hard to get for
over a year, and they are getting more
and more scarce.
' A year ago thit, was attributed to
the fact that men as highly skilled as
these in technical and delicate work
were so valuable in munition factories
that the American factories having big
allied war orders offered them good
wages and got them to make shells
and other munitions. Now the claim
is that the fact that America is going
into the war is causing the munition
factories to work harder and work
larger shifts than ever, with the re
sult that the demand is rtill greater
upon this highly skilled labor.
Surface grinders in the optical and
optometrist trade are also scarce. This
is said to be due to several causes, all
of which center, of course, upon the
war. The surface grinders are a
highly skilled class of workmen, and
their very careful attention to detai
makes them valuable in munition fac
tories, though the work there is of a
different character. 1
Many of them, however, have left
the bench and enlisted in the ranks of
the infantry and navy, following the
call of their country, and the very
natural call to get out of a work
room, away from a bench, and get into
the open where they can eat three
meals out of doors, sleep out of doors
and exercise out of doors.
