XXVL NO. 63 CflOLIQGEIS LOME FOR S CHIEF EXECUTIVE FINS MKH FAITH IN MARKETING CONFERENCE AT HES MOINES. DES MOINES. Iowa, Dee. 29.— —President Coolidge looks to the farm marketing conference here to * day to aid in “working out a sound economic policy {for holding croj surpluses) or: which there will be J substantial agreement among farm interests.” A telegram from the White Houst closing with these words was re-ceived by conference leaders and read by Representative Cyrenut Cole. The president’s telegram, clarifying his attitude on a grain export .’orporation as expressed in his recent Chicago speech was the chief . :opic under discussion as the conference assembled. It was as follows: “In order that you may be able .o clarify certain conflicting reports being made concerning my ittitude on the agricultural marketing problem, in case the ques-ion arises at your conference December 29,1 refer you to my recent Chicago speech w frere among other liings I said ‘Of course. I should ie willing to approve any plan that ■an be devised in accordance w ith ound economic principles.’ I recog-lize that it is a problem of eeo-lomic importance not only to agri-ultare but to the nation and I beleve that sound ways can be ound for coping with it. As I have dated. I am opposed to government mice fixing whether direct or in-lirect or to government baying and clling farm products either di-eatly or indirectly. I have not approved any specific plan. I believe, owever, that discussion of the vfplus problem is bringing differ -nt intgp^Bts together on the prin-iples J/a sound plan to bandie it nd I further conferences and ia^Q-Ions will result in the work-lg of a sound economic plan n which there will be substantial grepment among farm interests. I ust your conference may contrate to this end.” F CONSOLIDATION OF BIO NEW YORK INSTITUTIONS FORE-CAST IN REFORT.
