Crawford Suspension Recalls Other Efforts to Corner Market CHICAGO (U.P.)— Grain futures operations functioned calmly on the Chicago board of trade Tuesday under regulated price ranges, b.ut- written in the legendary annals of the great mart was the'story of another financially tragic attempt to corner the market. ' Mindful that grain prices, would be at a dangerously low position if success had climaxed the gigtantic "feoup planned by E. A. Crawford; now suspended, traders dealt with caution. Directors' announcement that the 90 cent minimum price for July wheat and 92 cents for September wheat would..continue in effect Tuesday served as a backlog to spurts of brisk activity when the market opened Monday after two days suspension. The price of the steady, easy* : sailing market, however, was cql- Farm Bureau And 4'H Clubs I Milford 4-H • Club Meets The Milford Merry Maids 4-H club met Tuesday afternoon at th'- home of Alvira Dueland.

D. Armour, "Old Hutch" Hatchinson, Jim Patten, Arthur Cutten and "King Jack" Stnrgis. Crawford was suspended -by the board for "inabijity to meet obligations," but it was more than rumor along LaSalle street that his holdings of 13,400.00 busbels of corn when the market began crumbling early last week added the necessary momentum to turn th«- slump into a major crash. Apparently referring to Crawford, who abandoned the dentistry profession to become one of'the market's heaviest plungers; federal officials in Washington said restrictions were enforced to pre- v'ent "a big trader" from dumping 13 millions of bushels on the market. Like many •»» his colorful predecessors, Crawford saw everything : swept away just when he was. within reach of one of the greatest fortunes in grain exchange history. Crawford's wild, far reaching plunge into the market : recalled how Jim Patten, the first man ever to make millions in the wheat pit, operated. ' , Early in 1908 Patten received reports of frost in tue Argentine, with the price at 98 cents a bushel. He began taking wheat until he had 10 million bushels. In May the price skyrocketed to $1.35. Patten, reeolute and unyielding, permitted shorts, who by this time were experiencing tremendous losses, to buy back at $L34. Patten profited $2,000.000. One of the most colorful of the old traders was "King Jack." Grey- haired, impulsive and daring, Sturgis dove Into the corn market. He disdained a coat. He went into the pit wearing a flannel shirt, a brightly hued shirt and a knotted pair of shoes. He started buying in June. Slowly the market advanced, and on July 29 of 1874 it shot up-nine cents. The next'-day he offered a fair quantity for sale. Believing the corner broken, heavy selling developed. But Foxy "King Jack" reversed his position and purchased more grain, squeezed the shorts and came out with a profit of $960.000. The famous Cutten "squeeze" was manipulated in 1921. Quiet, reserved and deliberate. Cutten dropped, several- million dollars after the grain futures administration was organized. Cutten went extremely long on the market, purchasing nearly all grain arallabl*. He was called before the board of directors. While he was conversing with them, the market .broke. He rushed from the directors room but already *he had lost a .fortune. As If spurred by the heat of the Chicago fire In 1871, 'wild' spec* ulation developed on the market the following year. It was then that P. D. Armour, one ol the canniest of all traders, "QW Hutch" Hutchinson, and Joseph L*iter entered the mafk<jk TheU combine developed one of the first corners la grain ever accomplished. But just when ttey were ready to realize on their carefully laid plans which boosted wheat from 90 cent* to $1.29, they were outwitted by another trader who demanded Immediate delivery. This being Impossible, the combine lost heavily as it was forced to "liquidate. Crawford's, iyramlded holdings may be the last of the dramatic, f ortune-made-ln-a-uay plunges In the grain exchange. With pegged prices suggest* . by the .govern: ment in the present situation, and directors more inclined tj place restrictions orr th« ' marke* the moment It begins to *Hde, opportunities are vanishing for Blow, unnoticed purchase of huge holdings and then, quick, ruthless selling.

"If all employers in each competitive group agree to pay their workers the same wages—reasonable wages—and.require:the same hours— reasonable hours —then higher wages and shorter hours will hurt no employer," Mr. Roosevelt declared. "Moreover, such action is better for the employer than unemployment and low wages, because it makes more buyers for his product. This is the simple idea which is the very heart of the industrial recovery act. "On the basis of .this simple prin- ciple of everybody doing things together, we are starting out on this nation-wide attack on unemployment. It will succeed if our people understand it—in the big industries, in the little shops, in the great cities and iri the small villages. There is nothing complicated about it and there is nothing particularly new in the principle. It goes back to the basic idea of society and of the : nation itself that pteople acting in a -group can' accomplish things which no individual acting alone could even hope to bring about." Mr. Roosevelt illustrated the benefits of united action-by pointing out that the textile code wiped An Invitation to ES LABOR The undersigned business firms are inaugurating a movement to encourage home improvement, repairs, remodeling and modernizing.

"or if one »tate tried it, the costs of operation rose so high that it was impossible to compete •with the employer or states which had failed to act The moment the recovery act was passed, this monstrous thing which neither opinion nor law could reach thru years of effort went out in a flash." To the millions of men and women wage earners affected by the codes, the president also had a definite message and a word of encouragement. He declared that "the codes and the agreements already approved, or about to be passed upon, prove that the plan does raise wages and that it does put people back to work." "You can look on every employer who adopts the plan as one who is doing his part," the president said, "aad those employers deserve well of everyone who works for a living. It will be clear to you, as it Is to me, that while the shirking employer may undersell his competitor, the saving he thus makes is made at the expense of his country's welfare." Mr. Roosevelt began his address by accounting briefly for his stewardship during the last four months and a half. He reviewed the moves for strengthening the financial structure of the government and the aatlon thru his administration's action in the banking situation and in reducing expenditures to income. Then he (raced the utept toward increasing the purchasing power of the fanner thru a reduction of crop acreage aod production. • "It i» obvious," he said, '"that If we can greatly increase the purchasing power of the tens of millions of people who make a living from farming and the distribution of farm crops* we will greatly increase the consumption of thcwt goods which are turned out by industry."
