Grain Support Change Asked Market Emergency in N.W. Cited Declaring' an emergency exists in the marketing of small grains in the four Northwest states, four grain organizations today petitioned federal officials to broaden the government support program to include lower quality grains. In wires to J. B. Hutson, president of Commodity Credit corporation, and N. E. Dodd of the agricultural adjustment administration, the grain men explained: "During the harvest season the four Northwest states (Minnesota, the Dakota and Montana) have experienced unusually rainy weather, which has resulted in deterioration of the quality of all crops. Tn fact, the damage has, In a large number of instances, reduced the quality so seriously that wheat now offered to country shippers is not of a grade eligible either under the loan program or the support program." Terminal elevators are faced with a manpower shortage which restricts their ability to unload grain sent here for storage, and this, plus the limited supply of boxcars makes it difficult for country shippers to place grain In position to benefit from the government support program, it was explained. "In view of the above, we earnestly request the price support program for wheat be enlarged to Include, at suitable discounts, grades lower than No. 3, so graded on account of damage or moisture, and that the program be extended so space and facilities of country elevators may be utilized to relieve j possible terminal congestion and : to afford all producers the bene fits of this program" the wire said. It was signed by Farmers Elevator associations of Minnesota and South Dakota, Farmers Grain Dealers association of North Da- i . . , , . t, kota and Northwest Country Ele - . ... vator association.

IIALIX)RAN Star Jnurnnl rolltlral Writpr Roy Dunn, Republican national committeeman who has assumed the role of GOP dynamiter in Minnesota, was out blasting today at Senator Harry S. Truman, Democratic nominee for vice president. Expressing his concern lest this Missouri man, on whom he poured without restraint grave charges of evil nolitiral performance, should become president if the Democrats open the claim Truman really is running for president. "Some of his associates already have intimated or openly said President Roosevelt, if re-elected, would resign when the war ends land take over the presidency of " . T . .;,, I the United Nations organization, .- w Dunn declared in a speech before the Fourth ward Republican club. "This would leave Senator Truman of Kansas City as the President of the United States." So, he went on, "we are entitled to analyze the man behind Truman, his connections with the infamous Pendergast political machine of Kansas City and his record in the United States senate." Dunn said there always Is the possibility of a president dying in office, thus moving the vice president into the White House. President Wilson, he said, had broken under the strain of the last war "and a small group ruled the country while he was unable to function." Getting down to the business of his charges against Truman, Dunn said that he had tried to block senate confirmation of Federal District Attorney Maurice Mulligan, responsible for conviction of Pendergast himself on an Insurance racket charge and for 2S3 convictions in wholesale vote frauds perpetrated by Pendergast. , , Truman also had attacked Federal Judges Reeves and Otis who sent the men guilty of the vote frauds to the penitentiary, Dunn said. It is expected Democrats, who have been "pointing with pride" to Truman's senate record, will be right back in his defense. They had a big time with Dunn a few weeks ago in his now celebrated controversy with Dean Everett Fraser of University of Minnesota law school.

Judge La Belle sent him back to the city jail bullpen and asked military police to take over the case.

McKnight, War Chest president after a meeting of the executive committee. Stanley Hawks will be general campaign chair- in a n. Goodrich Lowry will be co-chairman. Frank G. Jewel t, chairman of the Community Fund budget committee, pointed out i more than 60 budget hearings involving 8S1 man-hours have been held in recent months to insure local agency requirements are met, and to prevent duplication of services. Approximately two-thirds or funds collected in the drive will be earmarked for home-front agencies. Remaining one-third will go for the pccial war appeals. Around 32,000 volunteer solicitors are being organized throughout the city and county. I Chest roster this year will com- prise the 51 Community Fund ag-i encies, six other local and county agencies, and the National War j Fund group. National War Fund includes USO, War Prisoners Aid, United Seamen's Service and 19 I foreign relief appeals.

'Mlnnrannlis Pnnml Table of National Conference of Christians and Jews, local USO units, and VMCA. Neither the city nor county civilian defense councils will receive funds from proceeds of this fall's campaign, it was explained. Financial status of these organizations will permit continued operation into 1915 without supplementary financing, it is anticipated. Three new agencies have been added to National War fund recently. These are American Field Servit'c, Philippine War Belief, and I'nitcd Lithuanian Iielief. American Field Service Is an aided understated Jr Tench army medical units.

Diehl, today urged the Minneapolis board of public welfare to establish a hospital for rheumatic fever patients in the vacant Motley school building near the University campus. In urging the arrangement, Dr. Diehl proposed that either the board take over the plnee and '4 s ji .A4 tl t , -'j'-'v. v.. y if i equip it rts a heart hospital wnnjnation the university supplying medical care free, or that the board take over the project in co-operation with the university. The latter plan would have to be approved by the board of regents before it could go into effect, he said. The heart hospital, under direction of Dr. M. J. Shapiro, who also attended the meeting, was housed for a number of years at 1S00 Chicago avenue in what now is Elizabeth Kenny institute. The out-patient clinic still is at that address and hospitalized patients are being cared for at Glen Lake sanatorium. ' Other members of the university delegation who spoke in favor of the project were Dr. Cecil Watson, head of the department nt medicine; Dr. Wesley Spink, associate professor of medicine, and Dr. John Adams , associate professor of pediatrics. Terming rheumatic fever a "forgotten disease," Dr. Watson says "it is 10 times as important as most other diseases of childhood." Dr. Spink declared it is one of the major medical problems of yie armed forces. The board decided to appoint a committee of its own members to visit Motley school with the uni- versity men, and if the site proves feasible indicated a clinic for research on causes of the disease would be established as well as hospital care. It also was indicated by board members that, in case theydecide on the project they will ask the hoard of education to deed them the building.

KIF.CKIIEFEB Minneapolis Star Journal Farm News Writer A "tight" butter situation has developed in the Twin Cities which may leave consumers in this butter capital of the nation without spread for their bread, according to dairy firm officials. Price ceilings, government needs, lack of storage space, closing of some creameries and diversion of cream to other uses were anions reasons given for the plight of some of the dairies which supply groceries, restaurants and housewives with their butter and cream. Leonard H. Heller, vice presi dent of Northland Milk Co., said the Twin Cities area was in danger of running out of butter almost any day. He blamed lack of ceiling prices on cream for the condition. Creameries are able to get 8 to 10 , cents more for cream when they sell it to confectioners candy makers and bakeries and some ice cream makers than they can get from butter makers who are restricted on the price they can bid because of the ceiling prices on Jbutter, Heller said. He estimated "2 creameries in Minnesota have gone out of the butter business and he said countless creameries are diverting their cream to other uses. Creameries close to the Twin Cities area which make sweet cream butter particularly have been shipping out cream, he said, because they are closer to transportation facilities. Hjalmar Newlien, general manager of Clover Leaf Creamery Co., said his firm was operating now on a day-to-day schedule and that almost anv day might not fbe able to supply its customers. Newlien said his firm had been suffering from a shortage of butter for almost a year as the result of many small creameries closing, their cream going into the dried milk business in some instances. Clifford Holmes of Miller & Holmes, St. Paul, one of the large butter making firms of this area, admitted the volume of business his firm is doing at present is "nothing to brag about" but said it was about in line with what government figures show other j firms are doing throughout the Miller & Holmes has had to cut off the butter supply of several dairy distributing firms' recently. Holmes said this was due generally to two factors. Production of the butter firm is about 15 per cent below that of the same period last year and in addition it has a backlog of set-aside orders for the government. Holmes said that when the government ordered 50 per cent of the butter production set aside during the heavy milk production months of early summer, his firm had difficulty getting that amount of its butter into government agencies hands. Butter, he said, would he offered and not taken in sufficient quantity to make up 50 per cent of the firm's production. The butter had to be moved to keep the firm in business. Holmes said, so some of the butter which should have been going into government hands was moved into civilian outlets. As a result, his firm now is trying to catch up on the butter it "owes" the government stockpile despite the fact this is one of the lowest periods of milk production. E. N. Craig of Twin City Milk Producers association, said he believed the low 'milk production which will continue about another 60 days, combined with heavy de- mands for milk and cream from outside sources, is a factor in the butter shortage. Government reports show but-te$, production has been declining since July, 1943, and that the nation's production during flunc this year, was the lowest on record since 1925. Production of nil the other manufactured dairy products cheese, evaporated and dried milk were above the 1943 levels. Cold storage stocks of butter at the beginning of this year were 130,000,000 pounds above those of Jan. 1, 1943. On July 1, however, the storage stocks were 51,000,000 pounds below those of July 1, 1943. This trend continued into July. Cold storage holdings of eggs Aug. 1, however, were the highest since 1930 and stocks of "lard and rendered pork fat were the largest on record July 1.
