The Farmers National Grain corporation, the largest marketing organization -in the United States representing farmers, has Jnst completed an audit showing that In -the last 18 months It has made a profit ot $1,500,000.

Part of this profit will be used to build up a reserve and part of It will go back to co-operative marketing organizations, as. tbe first patronage paid since the federal marketing act went into effect. i This extraordinary development will come as a surprise to the agricultural world, but it was made possible through the orderly marketing of grain, the prevention of gluts at various terminals, and the' recent rise in the price of wheat. Chairman James C. Stone of the federal farm board has been In conference with the Fanners National Grain corporation here this -week and expressed himself as much pleased.

With -this evidence of the effectiveness of the agricultural marketing provisions of the law. Mr. Stone pointed out today that In the general discussion of the farm boards policies, so much attention had been paid to' stabilization operations, which were Initiated as an emergency measure only, that many. people had lost sight of the permanent features of the law whereby the farmers were to be aided In marketing their product at the highest possible return to them ana without the expensive Intermediate charges that used to go to the middleman. Middlemen Suffer.

Naturally it is this encroachment on the middlemans field that has aroused the antagonism of the grain trade toward the farmers co-opera-tines, but the Farmers National, which la wholly owned and controlled by tbe farmers, does for the producers what -tbs commission men used to do, except that Instead of trying to buy from the farmer at the lowest price rand selling on their own behalf at' the highest price, the Farmers National merely concentrates on trying to get the maximum return, since It represents farmers only and anyfmoneylt makes goes back to the farmers. Incidentally, the Impression gained here by talking to agricultural experts, Is that at no time In the last three years has wheat been bought on a sounder basis than -today. Thus wheat receipts at the terminals are below the demand, for cash grain. There la no doubt that speculators recently sent the market up too rapidly, hut on the other hand, the general rise in wheat' prices over the next 12 months la confidently expected; 7 Mills Need WheaL Officials here revealed that the farm board certainly justified its refusal to lock up In storage Its accumulated wheat, for if it had agreed to; withhold this wheat, tbe mills In the northwest might have been forced into a desperate situation. The crop failure In that section as It 'is, has made it difficult for the millers to get the right quality wheat except at.

a premium, and to some extent business is being lost to Texas and other milk. Wheat Is selling nr a premium at Minneapolis. The merchants who-sold their, wheat to the stabilization corporation, are buying it back now and while it might have been possible to charge them prohibitive prices," because they needed the wheat to supply the millers, such a policy. It was recognized by the stabilisation corporation would mean distress to the northwestern mills. and hence a compromise level hap been fixed.

iThe Grain Stabilization corporation is an emergency organization which la utilized by the farm board in emergencies to buy wheat but the Farmers National is a permanent marketing agency for the farmers. While there is a hotbed of controversy over the whole policy of the farm board, there Is no doubt that the Farmers, National Grain corporation is the real bugaboo. Never before has a farmers organization achieved such size or such success. The fact that middlemen are adversely affected is attributed by officials here to an evolution In marketing jnst as the growth of the chain store has driven many independent grocers out of business. It Is not going to be accepted, however, without a struggle and already the attack, oa farm board policies has grown Intensely In this region in the hope of breaking down, cooperative marketing.
