Negotiation for wheat export agreement bogged down today and, with prospects of a possible world shortage due to drought and rust, the field appear ed open for an international scramble to capture the market. American and European crop estimates were reported cut by drought. Russia may suffer Bonn reduction. Argentina refused to Join with the other wheat producing nations In an agreement for a minimum price on exports. Unless an agreement is unaimous, all the exporters involved will refuse to oompromlse. - If she expected shortage materializes, the United States would then have an excellent chance of selling a large part of Its permanent export surplus, to the advantage of western farmers. . Drought In the middle western United States has caused a sharp dip of 170,000,00 bushels in the winter wheat forecast. The Danubian countries, which produce considerable wheat, also are suffering from drought. Canadian prospects also are poor. Russia fc ahead with its sowings and has been looking for a bumper erop, but dry weather has set in and unless rain comes within the next two weeks, the crop may be smaller than expected. IHNSON'S CASE HAS BEEN SET FOR . TRIAL NEXT WEEK (By United Press.) The greatest dust storm on record drifted across more than half of the United States today to Jhe Atlantic Seaboard, adding to the devastation of a prolonged drought in the mid - western grain land and causing wide discomfort in eastern states. However, weather bureau officials predicted the dust would dissipate Itself along the eastern seaboard late today. They explained tnat me ausi had filtered east, but was not be - in z reolenlshed and might soon set' tie, depending however on the wtnds. MeteroloMeal authorities saw ine storm's extent was almost unprecedented and that the dust clouds, raised by winds from the scorched plains of the . west, might continue to drift high in the air for many miles. The cloud, estimated in the west at 1,900 miles long and almost 1,000 wide at one time, made the sky a haze, sifted through tiny window cracks and laid a fine coat of dust Inside countless skyscrapers of New York, homes and stores. In addition to injuring or killing many head of cattle in the west, the dust caused human discomfort and injury. New York hospitals reported twice the normal number of patients seeking removal of foreign matter from their eyes. .Visibility was strictly limited, but airfields reported flying as usual. The western skies wer clear today after the dust cloud passed eastward, but in the course of its formation the storm affected many states, including: North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Wiscconsin, Michigan, Missouri, ansa, and Nebraska (all of which had clear skies today) ; New York, Pennsylvania, Massachuetts, Connecticut, New Jersey and other eastern states. o rani Harrieburg, Pa., May 11.

It Is one of the most peculiar storms ever recorded Id this country and In this oom - uMffiHy many noted" the dull, hazy atmosphere and wondered what caua - td It "Glancing In the direction of the sun there was a most unnatural Wll of dust particles visible to the naked eye, all attributed as a part f the phenomena of the great dust storm to the mid - west. During the afternoon much of the haze passed away and the blue sky was visible gain. By FRED MYERS, (United Press Staff Correspondent.) Chicago, May 11. A gigantic cloud of dust 1,500 miles long, 900 miles across and two miles high buffeted and smothered almost one third of the nation today in a spec tacular climax to a drought more damaging than the 1927 floods which made 600,000 persons homeless. Slowly shifting winds promised early abatement of the dust storm, but despairing farmers, losing an es tlmated $2,000,000 daily as vegeta tion burned in the ground, were given no hope of rain. For more than 36 hours arid winds from the plains of Western Canada swirled tons of sand and grit eastward. Cattle in parched fields sickened and died as dust blanketed grass and fodder. Thousands of persons suffered seriously from eye and nose Irritations. Health authorities warned of the danger of dust - carried epidemics. In Chicago, St. Louis, Des Moines, Kansas City, St. Paul and Minneapoliseverywhere under the grimy blanketthe sun was obscured and visibility limited to less than a mile. Pilots of commercial airlines climb ed to heights of almost 16.000 feet to reach clear air. Thick layers of gray powder sift ed through window and door cracks, defying every precaution of housewives. Foods were ruined and furniture made unuseable. Wheat leaped the 5 - cent limit on the Chicago Board of Trade yester day and crop experts predicted a $1 quotation within a week. May wheat sold at 90 3 - 8 cents a bushel, 13 cents higher than a fortnight aeo. Corn and oats also participated in the upward movement. Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace assured the country that there is no danger of a food shortage, although a million bushels of wheat are being destroyed dally and prospects for the spring crop are worse than at any time since the famine harvest of 1894. A record heat wave which has aggravated aridity over a laree nart of the country for almost a week was expected to, break today. ine austy storm covered the ooun. ny Between the eastern slope of the Rock Mountains and the east ern end of the Great Lakes, reach ing rrom north of the Canadian bor - ENDORSEMENT TO EARLE OR REED Philadelphia, May 11. The Pennsylvania Federation of Labor today refused to endorse the candidacy of George H, Earle, 3rd., and David A. Reed after a riotous debate lasting more than 30 minutes. Earle la seeking the Democratic gubernatorial nomination and Reed is a candidate for re - election to the U. S. senate on the Republican ticket. Threats of personal violence filled the ballroom of the Benjamin Franklin, where the 33rd annual convention is being held, as the delegates representing organized labor fought a resolution giving the support of the Federation to Earle and Reed, The convention adopted a resolu tion condemning Reed's record as i U. S. Senator and declaring that he had always represented the "vested Interests." "Reed's whole record showed that he has been against the working man," Martin F.' Brennan, of the United Mine Workers of America, said. "We should vigorously oppose his candidacy for re - election." An attempt to amend the reeolu tion so that it would Include George H. Earle was made by George Rhodes, president of the .Reading Central La bor Union. John A. Phillips, president of the federation, ruled that no amendments were permissable from the floor. Loud shouts greeted the announcement. A roll call was demanded by many. Immediately following adoption of the Reed resolution, Thomas W. Ken nedy. Democratic candidate for lieu tenant governor and secretary - treas urer of the U. M. W. A., started a vigorous defense of Earle. After con siderable debate it was moved to ex punge the discussion of Earle from the record. Kennedy charged the attempt to condemn Earle was "a left - handed effort to divide labor." After a bitter fight the conservative group sent a resolution endorsing the Lundeen bill which provides for un employment and social insurance to the executive council for considers tion. Many of the delegates protested that the resolution was being "pickled" In the committee. Previously the delegates had ap proved a resolution endorsing the Mc Leod bill providing for the full payment of the balance due on deposits in closed banks.
