HOLD PART OF THE WHEAT Farmers Will Do This Because of the Unattractive Prices Offered Right Now. Topeka, Kan., July G.—An optimlHtlc Htatomcnt that the Sautu Fo railroad Is fully prepared to meet all demands for freight cars and that the movement of grain will be promptly attended to, was Riven out. here today by K. O. Merrick, general freight agent of the Santa Fe system. The situation is helped by the fact tluit many farmers Intend to hold at leaat a part r>; their wheat, beeatiHtj the jjre.^ent market price la not attractive, Mr. Morrlck said. "The Simla Fo baa been jmttlng In its he:;t llc.ky for .several jnontbi-t to pet ready for the season's crop movement," s»id Merricli. ''New cars have been bouirht; old-uirs repaired. Wo are in pretty good shape and rourty for the rush. An Illustration. "Of course any such optimistic statement should bnve a loophole. For instance: If all tho farmera should take a notion to ship all their wheat at one time, no rallrond could handle tho grTi.iu offered. Hut they are not likely lo do It that way. The prevailing price of wheat la not attractive, so most farmers will try to held at least a part of the crop. Reports com- liiE from Santa Pp stations in llio wheat territory indicate an orderly movement which the :ailroad:i will be able to handle In a manner satisfactory to the shipper, In my Judgment. It Is Teamwork. "I'rcsidont Storey's appeal for shippers to cooperate with us In the handling of equipment in such a. wny as to get the- best service out of U, struck a responsive chorTl. The teum- work wo have had from tho ssUlppera generally has been fine." All reports indicate a big corn crop, Mr. Merrick said; also large yields ot filfalfa, sorghum, oats and "pastures never were lictler." Tho Sautu Ku, he said, is hauling a good many cattle into Kansas u> restock farm's whim let their stuff go during the depression. . "Taking thiugs together," .Merrick i-jiichi.U'd, "It Is goini5 to l)o-B"T»wtty- eood year for tho fanner."
