It simply has driven prices dov.n from $5.25 to $3.25. btcn himself. On July 9, when the wheat processing tax became effective, Chicago May wheat was $1.10. On Nov. 15, with a 30-cent processing tax imposed; Chicago May was 15 cents a bushel lower. Tnal means that the farmer, through his lower price, was absorbing half tlie processing tax. Oppos* Acreage Cut Is acreage reduction working in the wheatbnds? There Is some skepticism. E.! J. Grimes, chairman of the NRA Grain Exchange Code committee at Minneapolis, believes there Is considerable .'fcrmer resistance to the plan, and that the acreage reduction will fall short of expectations. He thinks the higher prices Ere cutting down the consumption of flour, and that most of the rise in wheat prices is due to speculative demand stirred by inflation, drought. Tr.ere seems little doubt thai many farmers who did not raise wheat before, and who therefore were not eligible for the reduction program, are determined to raise it now. That, of course. tenJs to neutralize the redactions of others, stripped do For instance, there is evidence by horses, that Iowa, not hitherto a great v;b;at sti.*-', has seeded 25 per cent ^ I more winter wheat this winter than ^ £ year ago. White the" 1933 crop, Slo.OOO.COQ bushels, was the smallest in 37 years, the carryover of old wheat is one of the largest., and ihe total of wheat available today (nearly c billion bushels) shows only a.sma! shrinkage Irom a year ago. Flour Demand Slumps Tlit mills here report a definite fallin; on* of demand for flrmr since the processing tax. Some of this is due lo the fact lhat farmers are getting their own Hour • (round al country grist mills instead of buying it, but tber« is some evidence that city consumption has also fallen. Many wheat men will tell you, wilh a shake of the head, that I be fifture of wtleat still rests mere on whal Nature does lo the 1934 crap than on all Ihe reduction and tinkering programs. While it is true that the NRA Is vastly unpopular in the northwestern farm areaj. inside t.'.c citv it "has been accepted "generally on laith, in the hope" that it. will do tome good." says Carl Cummins leader of the NHA organization in St. Paul. There have been some 400 complaint*, including the anonymous to which no attention was paid. Nol more than W octitlons lor exceptions were made. Protest on Wages However, the garment-making trade here now has a formal protest lodged with its permanent code ' authority, claiming that not enough . .differentia! in wages from the New ' York standard has been allowed to make up for the difference in :.kill and productivity between the nimble New York garment-makers and •Ihe stiff-lingered Swedes of tin: ieclion.
