"Opposition to the" eighteenth
amendment is not today a political
issue, Mr. Vicks statement said,
"but the Volstead act is open to
amendment as has been vointed out
by Governor Edwards and by such
a distinguished republican authority
as Senator Knox of Pennsylvania.
"The Volstead act is so extreme
that it has placed in the criminal
class millions of women who make
of the home grown fruit light wines
for domestic use and millions of
farmers who make and mature cider
from their own- orchards. It places
under a banvmillions of our of our
citizens who, for generations, have
regarded light wines and beers as
much a part of their daily food as
the bread upon their tables
"Evil consequences have followed
the enactment of this unwise and
undemocratic law. Moonshining has
grown twenty-fold. It has come
crown out of the mountains into the
plains and even into the towns an
cities. Disrespect of the law an
the bribery of state and federal
agents of enforcement are every
where in overwhelming evidence. In
place of the harmless lig'.'t wines
and beers, we have the increasing
use ot the harmful liquors in illicit

call a hal on this and rescue the
country from hands of- a fanatical
minority whose numerical weakness
is shown every time they show a

clear, fundamentally democratic,

BY 'POTATO KING
Coloradoan Says Agricultur-I
lsts4fVU Not-Continue' to
Raise Crops Under Pres
, ent Conditions. v
Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee Leaned Wire.
Chicago. Tune 1R. A' "strike nf
farmers that will astound he world"
is predicted by E. H. Griibb. inter
nationally known as a "potato king"
ot Colorado,' and perhaps the final
word on potato culture.
He is consulting agriculturist of
a Sacramento valley irrigation com
pany in Lalitornia, a breeder of
blooded stock and recognized the
world over as an expert in Agricul
ture. His warning comes in a letter to
A. C. Thomas, member of the Chi
cago Press club, and says in part:
farmers will not continue to oro-
duce crops at a loss and under pres
ent conditions. All kinds- of meat
and grain products are being sold at
prices that lose money to the farmer..
The worm has turned, -commer
cial agriculture is at end, it cannot go
on with the' high cost of inefficient
labor, short hours and other unfavor
able conditions. There are millions
of acres of depopulated farms in New
lands sold the. fertility off 'without
replacing anything. The low price
of products prevented the purchase
ot necessary iertiuzer.
In parts of Colorado the larm Ta
bor situation is so serious that farm
ers are doing only such work as can
be accomplished by themselves and
their families. Great tracts are be
ing sown to grass. One farm I know
of formerly produced 50,000 bushels
of potatoes and - 5,000, bushels tf
wheat. . ,
"Now, 2,500 food consumers mdst
look elsewhere ' for potatoes and
1.000 others must seek new supplies
"Housekeepers' boycotts will not
change these conditions. TJre 35.
000,000 people who derive their sup
port from agriculture ' will rise up
and, assert their independence in a
way to astound the world."

group of independent and progres

tions,' said Mi1. Hoover in discuss-
lng his -talk with Senator Harding.
'Ane senator stated that it was his'
most sincere desire to be the instru- '
mentality for bringing the divergent"
elementsof the party together;, tliatj
the views of both the sonservative '
and progressive wings of the party ,
would be fully represented in the ad- '
ministration; that he represented no
particular group, but that he consid
ered it was his duty as leader of the
party to consolidate alllemcnts into
a united front."
Pleased With Platfenn.
Mr. Hoover made public" a better
he had sent to some of his friends '
prior to hi, conference with Senate
Harding. In this letter Mr. Hoover
said that while he was "greatly dis-
appointed over some tendencies that '
were apparent it Chicago." yet the
greater part of the republican plat
form is 'constructive.. and pro
gressive," and there is- nothing to
prevent a "forward looking inter
pretation." i He nnteH tliaf -s-
ganizatiou .of laws relating to elec

not adequately dealt ith.
Mr. Hoover said hv
progressives could accomplish mote
