A. April 2�?tomorrow, theremin come to a head in Washington one of the most important situations bearing upon the future course of business and economic policy in the United states. The officials of the american Petroleum Institute comprising nearly All the important Oil producers in the United states Are coming to find out in effect what will be the attitude of the government toward an agreement they made last week to restrain production. The agreement is in substance not to take any More Oil out of the ground in 1929 than they took in 1928. The member of the government upon whom lies the immediate responsibility for an answer is Secretary of the Interior Wilbur. The Interior department has custody of most government Oil matters a and the Secretary of the Interior is chairman of the Federal Oil conservation Board. The other members Are the secretaries of War Natty and Commerce. Secretary Wilbur in anticipation of the meeting has turned the fundamental question involved Over to attorney general Mitchell. Or. Mitchell has been asked to give an official opinion As to whether the agreement proposed by the Oil producers is contrary to the Basic Sherman anti Trust act and its supplement the Clayton act. What the act says what or. Mitchell will do will get to examine the proposed agreement and decide whether it violates the anti Trust act. The essential words of which Are As follows a every contract combination in form of Trust or otherwise or conspiracy. In restraint of Trade or Commerce is hereby declared whether the language of tile agreement is contrary to the Lan cd rage 0f the anti Trust act is a pure it legs i question. If or. Mitchell ays a yes it is a then obviously the agreement Falls. No group of business men would go on in violation of Law and no administration could afford to let them. There would remain however the quite different matter of policy. As a matter of policy the government has Long favored conservation of Oil. And there can be no doubt whatever that this agreement is. Among other things an act of conservation. Competition in the production of Oil Doe Lead to deplorable waste of a precious natural resource. As Lone ago As 1924. President Coolidge said a the present methods of capturing our Oil deposits Are wasteful to an alarming persons with no financial interest k in Oil. Such As geologists and Heads Washington d. C., april 2�?the j i entire East coast of Florida from f a Jacksonville to key West an area important economic and containing 600,000 persons will be represented in the lower House of the new Congress by a woman and if you ask her what she Hopes to accomplish in that responsible position she will Tell you with engaging frankness that her first Effort will be to establish an identity of her own. That would be a Little mystifying 1 if you did no to happen to know that this new representative is Ruth Bry an Owen daughter of the commoner. Her career has been handicapped. She is a member of Congress but so was her father. She has achieved Success As a Public speaker but so did her father. She has a theory of government founded on a recognition of its obligations to the people who live under it but there again her father was ahead of her. Now you understand Why mrs. Owen should feel that what she needs is an identity and that its not going to be easy to achieve it. She dedicates her life it will be especially difficult to achieve because she has chosen politics As her vehicle of accomplishment. That too was her fathers Field and he left so Little of it uncultivated that his daughter rather wonders where she can turn a Furrow of her own. Choice. She had to seek the accomplishment of her ideals through political action because again As her fathers daughter she had the deep conviction that through such action alone could her country a destiny be fulfilled. That conviction shaped her career. She a in senator says Mcmaster on radio says Rural West has been denied Equality discrimination big upon Jimenez Well maybe the women will leave poker alone now they have invaded Field of Crane operating in big manufacturing plants a their hands say managers Are lighter at ticklish work rebels surrounded but is beaten Back monday both using planes this is the delicate Strong Arm Yankton s. aprd2_ special Mexico City Mexico april it it a a Njg Faith a senator w.

The belief Here however was that it was in Chihuahua rather than on the West coast that the fishing had its principal significance. A Victory for the federals at Jimenez probably would mean rapid disintegration of the rebel movement outside the state of Sonora. A rebel Victory while not entailing Federal disaster would certainly give the revolt a new lease on life and prolonging it indefinitely. Lieutenant colonel Gustavo Leon who hew across the rebel lines late yesterday afternoon reported he had seen Bridges burning on railway outlets from Jimenez to Chihuahua City and to Parral. This probably the work of Federal raiders were reduced materially and when they asked for a 20 percent Tariff on hides they got nothing at machinery parts protected senator Mcmaster pointed out thai practically everything the Farmer buys is on the High protected list a except farm machinery and in the Case of farm machinery a he continued a the materials that go into the manufacture of that machinery Are on the highly own country a plenipotentiary a number of details inseparable from the elaborate ceremonial involved.

A agricultural College of North Dakota told the House agriculture committee today in testimony on the Nwe farm Bill. Crops produced in other countries where lands and labor were cheap he said were driving american products from the markets and leaving the american Farmer with a surplus. They come into this country largely in the form of substitutes he added explaining that imported molasses in the manufacture of Industrial alcohol was displacing american Corn while starch imports left growers in this county with potatoes to throw away. 1 he urged that the problem be dealt we Ith by Tariff revision to preserve the Domestic Market for american producers. Coulter favored creation of a farm Board to Aid the Farmer in balancing production and demand. Stabilization corporations also would be valuable he said but he disagreed with suggestions that they should be controlled by the government instead of by the Farmers. Make plans say Coulter said that in anticipation of the enactment of farm Relief legislation that would be effective plans already were being made to increase the acreage in production during the Canning season. Turning to the problem of dealing with the philippine islands farm products. Coulter said Congress should say frankly to them whether they might expect their Independence and proceed accordingly. A if we intend to give them their indent Denee we should put them on the same Tariff basis As Cuba and not allow them to go abroad and build up an artificial agricultural situation on the expectation that they will eventually become at state a he said. Suggests Pool Alliance an Alliance Between american we heat growers and the Canadian we heat pools was suggested by j. W. Brinton. Of Lincoln. Neb., before the Senate agriculture committee As a Means of stabilizing the Price of wheat. He said 60 per cent of wheat of the world is grown in these two countries and that if they cooperated they would be Able to control the Price rather than have the world Market do so. Senator Norris Republican. Nebraska observed that a higher Price level maintained by the United states and Canada would result in increased production in India and Russia but Brinton said that this did not necessarily follow. Advocating the Mcnary Bill which is serving As a basis for the farm hearings. Brinton declared that the stabilization corporations could return a profit because they would make a enormous economies in the handling of wheat. Chairman Mcnary contended that the stabilization corporations would lose Money in the end but he also thought they would Institute economies and that these savings could work to reduce their losses. Urges Coop teaching c. Coffey Dean of the department of agriculture at the University of Minnesota told the House committee that funds should be made available to the agricultural colleges to assist in educating Young men and women in cooperative marketing.
