Plan to Advance
Money on Wheat
Scheme to Overcome Difficul
ties of Farmers, Due to Ipyt ,
Prices?"' Announced by
V Kajisaij Buyers. ,;
pvichha. Kan. Nov.' 24.--A new
nay fa relieve wheat farmers tlif
ftcmtles as th result of low prices
and a strained money situation, has
bWu devised by mil and elevator
operators here and in ' other grain
centers of the southwest.
'. A plan of advancing to grain
growers $1 a bushel pn wheat car
ried on contract so that ' they may
deliver now and sell at some future
date has -been adopted by a large
lije of elevators and mills. The" In
auguration of this plan Is primarily
Ul relieve the money situation, it
was said. Millers" declare the plan
will move considerable wheat and
stop talk of forcing the farmers to
sell their grain.
The Inauguration of the plan, mill
operators said, already has elisited
much favorable comment from farm
ers as well as bankers.
The plan as outlined by mill and
elevator men follows:
"Tht contract with the fapners is
very simpler He now ha the- op
portunity to dispose af his wheat at
once anq receive in turn ? I down.
Then as. he watches the market quo
tations he finally decides the quota-'
tlons nave reached the top atid he
can draw I the remaineder of his
money from the miller" or elevator
it the hasic market price. The re
sult of the plan can be easily seen.
Itlwill relieve the farmer of "holding
his loan. The wheat will not be uub
ject to weevil and the market will
become more stable." V
