Already gorged with wheat which it is unable to digest or dn- pose of, except at enormous mone- tary loss, the board, under its nsw chairman, James C. Stone, has de- cided upon a radical about-face m the policy it pursued under the di- rection of Alexander H. Legge. CARRIED WARNING Boiled down to essentials, board's announcement carried to tne growers the Wunt warning that they can no longer look to the government to take the surplus off the market m order to peg pri- flies wit! in reducing thei? ccresge so Gat 1931 will not produce a further un- manageable surplus. The effect of this warning asd the new policy remains to be seen. But on all sides today it was ac- cepted that the board's action would serve to accelerate a de- mand in the new 72nd Congress for trial of the debenture or equal- ization fee schemes of dealing with the wheat situation. It is a pros- pect and a situation that bodes little peace for the Hoover admin- istration, which came into power two years ago on the promise of solving the farm riddle which has plagued every administration ainca the war.
