NO HOPE SEEN OF BILL'S PASSAGE Restriction at This Session of Direct Marketing Is Doomed. WASHINGTON, May 5. (.W--Restriction of direct marketing by legislation appeared doomed today as far as action in this session of congress is concerned. Representative Hope (R. Kans.) who first introduced an amendment to the 1921 livestock act this session, expects committee consMera- tion of his bill next week, but is by no means optimistic of a favorable report. Hope feels that Representative Jones (D. Texas), chairman of the house agricultural committee, is hostile to the bill, which is opposed by the Texas cattlemen. Kansas cattle interests are united in favor of the Hope bill. The act, however, would affect more vitally hog producers, and it is in the nation's leading hog producing state, Iowa, the chief opposition has developed among the farmers. Despite this opposition. Representative Wearin (D. Iowa) still is hopeful of enactment of the Hope- Wearin, act. He issued a statement today in which he said "The excessively low price of hogs demands immediate action." He said the fact that hogs are far below cattle in price indicates the packers are using their advantage of the 40 per cent of the supply they are buying direct to drive down the price at the central market.
