NEW YORK Sept 25 New York Times today quotes Basil W Delgass former vice pres ident of the Amtorg Trading cor poration as sayingthe dumping of wheat andother commodities is a fixed policy of the soviet govern ment designed to foment revolution in other countries Delgass recently was declared an outlaw by the soviet government and his property confiscated be cause he refused to go to Moscow and explain his resignation from the Amtorg the soviet commercial agency in this country Under U S Price Russia he said presents the extraordinary spectacle of a coun try being starved and impoverished by a government pursuing the fan tastic policy of depriving its own people of the things they desperate ly need in order to dump them abroad at cheap prices as a means of creating disorganization discon tent and revolution in other coun tries Ttiere is also aniSher Un policy namely that of obtaining capital for the soviet industrializa tion plan Colonel Douglas Sanday a mem ber

crop for the coming year which they can produce at 50 cents a bushel at Black Sea ports as com pared with the American production cost of upward of 80 cents He said he nad reason to believe that Russia was figuring that the United States next spring would have a surplus of at least 200000 000 bushels which together with the huge Russian crop would de piess prices greatly The short sales in his opinion were made to make money for the AllRussian Textile Syndicate which expects the price to be down as a result of the huge Russian crop and to be able to cover at u large profit RAIL CHIEF BY
