"Speculators Trying
To Starve the Stock,"
Says a County Agent
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 23. (Special.)
Profiteering in hay by speculators
is threatening to prevent the feed
ing out of thousands of head of Ne
braska cattle, according to informa
tion reaching the extension service
of the University of Nebraska col
lege of agriculture. The high price
will also compel the sale of many
stock cattle in the drouth stricken
section of the state. Eastern Ne
braska county agricultural agents at
tempting to buy hay in the western
part of the state have found the sup
ply cornered by speculators. These
profiteers are asking $25 a ton for
alfalfa. Farmers of eastern Nebras
ka say they cannot pay such a price
and they plan to sell their cattle
without fattening.
Farmers of Seward county sent
their agricultural agent, H. P. Rig
don, on a hay buying tour. He trav
eled 1,000 miles by automobile ajid
visited seven counties. Four other
counties in the drouth stricken belt
of the state sent men west. All had
the same experience. Where specu
lators have not actually bought up
the hay they have excited the farm
ers into holding for, an exhorbitanl
The cheapest alfalfa found was at
Stratton $22 a ton. At Hairier and
Sanborn $27.50 a ton was asked. In
Dawson county, thousands of tons
are in the hands of speculators and
are being held for $25 a ton. The
.a.eents succeeded in buying a little
wild hay for $21 a ton. ;
"Speculators are trying to starve
the stock in our county," wrote one
county agricultural agent. "If hay
cannot be purchased so it can be fed
without too great a loss the fanners
arc going to ship their stock out."

cial.) Scottsbluff potato growers
have organized to do their own mar
keting. A branch of the county farm
bureau has been formed, known as

tion has taken over the Farmers'
Union storage cellar at Morrill and
thousands of bushels will be stored
there. One dollar to $1.10 per 100
pounds is the prevailing price of
fered for potatoes on the car here
now. They must be sacked, and
the sacks cost 23 cents each, which
cuts the price to the grower to 77
to 87 cents a hundred.

good in this county. The spuds are
large, smooth and comparatively
free from scab. The potatoes are
graded and inspected by government
men before they are shipped.

(From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 23. (Special.)
Eliminating Christmas and spring
vacations, and continuing school on
Saturdays, may become necessary
in Nebraska to make up for the
epidemic of Spanish influeenza.
State Superintendent Clemmons
and Nebraska educators are con
sidering such a plan and it is very
likely that school children will have
to make the sacrifice.
In order to complete the required
amount of school work as early as
possible to release students for
work on the farms, it is more than
likely that school will keep six
days a week, with regular course of
study on Saturday.
