Private deal- trs in uraln and cotton lead those wlio propose abolition of ihc wl-.ois .system, whereas the larger naticn- that it be preserved ami be giv^n even greater powers to enable it to l.-ecoine iiselul to agriculture. Scenes of chiirB«i have been linrl- <:d at the board 'iiud its methods, . but the underlying impetus to this investigation by tile Senate Agri- 1 culture Committee was ftirnislied°by th;. fact that whereas (lie hoard and the $500.000.000 act were r?c- ommenrlcd by (he Hoover administration as the test possible farm relief measure, they have been almost utterly impotent in the attempt to check tobogganing farm . prices nnd rave cost the taxpayers • a huge sun of monev. Senator George W. Morris of Nebraska, sponsor of the investigation, says the Sjnattj ''only wants to ' make an absolutely fair, investigation for the truth." He so framed '?is ._resolu.tion that private grain and coHcn"deulers will also beTn- vcEtig.ited. with especial reference lo their Alleged altempts lo hinder 01 wreck the Farm Board. . Ten big questions Morris and other farm .stale senators want to determine are tt.sse: 1—Whether the board, regardless of ils $200.000,000 losses, has helped or hindered tile farmers. 2—Whether it should be abolished, or continued with activities restricted to encouraging co-operative marketing nnd making loans or continued with power to use tile fquiltzation fee or the export debenture plan. 3—Whether the cosily' stabilization operations were in accordance with tlic law. 4—Whether the act lias had n fair tryout or whether Its successful operation was rendered impossible only by Ihe- protracted depression. 5—Whether the board, by mistaken or improper operation, has injured rather man helped the farmer co-operative movement and fias entered into competition with previously established co-opera lives. G—Whether Ihe stains of trr ?5(iO.OM.OOO given to the board indicates the need of a change in the board's membership. 7—Whether there is Justification for tl:e S75.000 salary paid one executive of a co-operative financially aided by Ihe Farm Board or the $50.000 salary paid to another. 8—Whether any exchanges, board of trade or private dealers have hampered or interfered with tha fxwrd's activities. 0—whether politics fc.is entered Into the affairs of the board and Us sponsored co-operatives and whether there lias been speculation with federal funds lent to co-operatives. 10—whether anil why the individual fanner p.iys from 1 to 10 per cent Interest on F.irm Board money origin.iiiy advanced to (he cooperatives at an average- of 3 per ceni.
