"The wheat tarraors must face their situation today squarely," declares John A. Whitelrurnt, president ot the State Board ot Agriculture In Issuing his call tor Uio meeting to bo held at Wichita next Monday. This moetlng •will ho attended by dolegntes appointed by governors' ot flvo wheat producing states and the purpose is •working out a remedy tor the present •unfavorable position ot the tarmer. President WhtlohurBt request!! pub- llcatlon of the tallowing etatement outlining his views on tho wheat situation; "The gradual decline In the price of •wheat since tho war has reached ft point where It cat* no longer be raised at a' profit under the present system of farming and marketing, and unless n change is made one of our greatest industries is In peril. •'. "It la always the tendency to placo the blame on the other fellow when thlnga go wrong but unless the actual cause of the present condition of the •wheat farmer is "found and remedied 'the result will bo disastrous and far reaching. "Wheat Is a world, grown commodity and Its price can only ho controlled by the "supply and demand" of the world, it is true that markets are manipulated to some extent 'by speculation hut thuro must he two sides to any market and such manipulation will cause prices to he Inflated as often as depressed so that it is impracticable to lay the blame entirely to this cause. Can't Legislate Price. "Owing to the fact that the United States la only one ot several countries that produce a surplus ot wheat that must bo Bold to tho markets of the world, it would be Impossible that Its price can ever 'be regulated by legislation until such tlmo us wo consume all we produce within our own borders. "The railroad rates are much liigher on wheat and flour than ten or fifteen years ago, as they are" on other • commodities, hut this is explained by the railroads as caused by the increase in the coat ot labor and all materials. "Tho mills are often criticized for the difference between the price they receive (or their products and the 5>rlco they pay for their wheat, yet the mills always iuive to pay a premium over the terminal market or export prices nnd'tmly the large and well managed i%iiU seem to survive. "It would seem tliat no legislation •will help to regulate tho 'price of -wheat so that it must be up to the fanner to help himself by producing a quality ot wheat that will bring the highest price, producing it In the most economical manner, and taking- the proper care of It after it is raised. Our Flour In Demand.' "The "Hard Winter" wheat of Kansas Oklahoma and the Puuhatidla of Texas produces a flour that is In demand by the largest flour consumers of Kuropo as wall as the United Klates, and most of tho wheat is milled in the district where It is grown, the best is sought by the millers at premiums over oilier markets but when the wheat Is allowed to get out of condition it Is only bought by exporters who buy the lowest quality of wheat, or by speculalors who buy it at a wide margin so they cun mix It jmd grade it tip at a profit. "There is no (location but that a great deal of the fault lies with the fanner himself and can be remedied (hyi better fannimT methods and hy a bettor understanding ot the marketing conditions, and or his own wheat. Too much attention ban been paid to legislation to ifure the farmers' troubles, and not enough to common sense fanning methods. "There are mnnyl farmers who resent having anyone try to telUthem anything about farming and If they don't muke a cticccsK at It will placo the 'blnmo on everybody but themselves, yet. these farmers will ignore the results of years of experimenting by Agrioultural colleges maintained by the States and by the Federal Government for their benefit, they will continue to "wheat their laud to death" by planting nothing but wheat your after year without fertilizing, rotating crops, or doing nnythla;; to build up the soil, will plant seed from the same wheat until a largo percent of _lt is shriveled grains, weed seed, rye, or other foreign Hiatoriai, until the sol> has been drained of its Jertiilty and will producu only half a crop of wheat that Is so poor in quality the local mills cannot grind it without shipping In a better quality of wheat from distant markets to build it UP. Constantly Reduced Yield. "Oo-operntive marketing proves successful in some instances and In others has not, depending largely on.the local management. Wheat Growers' Assoclatl6ns aro being tried injiun- eas and Oklahoma but there associations can only sell the wheat tho farmer produces and at prices iu proportion to Its quality. "The crop ot -wheat now being threshed la ot exceptional duality and yield owing to unusual weather conditions, yot tho yield In most localities 1 B about lialf that of a normal crop on the same ground fifteen or twenty years ago.

McMillan, who has been In United States! consular servico In Latin America for the past ti years, and who is bore visiting his Bister, Mrs. J. E. Hodge of •Oareyville, states that his chief appreciation of Latin America is that U has mado him like his own. country better. Mr. McMillan bogan his consular work after graduating at tho Kansas University In 191V. He was first placed In chargo of the Port of Cas- lorica In Central America. He remained thoro until early In September last year, when ho 'WUB sent to Aulo- fagasta, one of the larger ports of Chile, A Cosmopolitan City. "Chile is a great nitralo producing country," stated Mr. McMillan, "it supplied this country with most of tho nitrates during the World War. Anlofogasta is the chief port of Bolivia which is an Inland country. The population of the city is at least half foreign. Thoro aro more Spanish, thnu any other foreigners. They are tho morchitnt class. Tho English aro next In numbers. They own tho nitrate mines, the railroada and the banks. Tho Jugo-Slavs also control many ot tho nitrate mlues, batiks and the breweries. There are a great many Gormans in that country and also many Americans. Altogether it is a^ory cosmopolitan city. "Trie Americans have tho biggest industry iu that city which baa about 55,000 inhabitants, it is tho world's •biggest copper mine, which is owned by tho Guggenhfdms. ' This mine is 160 miles northeast ot Antofogasta. Although tho percentage of copper in tho ore Is email, is 1B the best mlno because they simply scoop the oro off the top of tbo mountain. Thors are about loo Americans employed at the mine which has a total payroll of 16,000 people. T£e town whore tide mine is located is called Ohuqulca- mats, Double Investment. "This mluo produces/ lC.iJOO.iMO pounds of reflued copper every month. It costs eight cents a pound to produce (be copper trout the mine to New York, where it was selling for 17 cents a pound. "A great deal of tin Is shipped from Bolivia to tho port of Antofogasta to this county. There are between thirty and fifty million dollars worth of goods ahlppod to this country every year from Antofogastu. That amount of goods is handled in from 325 to 3S0 ships which clear the port for the United States every year.

Water 1 B secured from the snow molting on the Andes mountains 21^ milc-ii away. • •'Antofogasta is a very modern little town. It looks more liltc an American city than a Latin city. Kngllsh is spoken a groat deal and thero are English BChools. There Is one American missionary thorb who teaches a class of 600 young men. H«v e Their Yankees. "Thero are three strata of society in Chile. Tho ruto is composed or tho laboring men, who are poor specimens compared to tboso in this country. The3o -ilien plan on their weekly spree. Tbo mlddlo class men are the shop keepers who aro very plain. The upper class people aro much like Americans. They are called tho -Yankees of South America, for they aro very fond ot t politics. "Tho Americans who go to Chile. Bhow njoro-iuitlativo than tho English or tho other forelBuera but too many of them go looking for romance and the soft eyed senorltas. They Boon tiro of that and returje home. The English fo down thero to stay and many 'of .thorn marry the people ot Chile. There is an opportunity in that country for young mining engineers from tho -United Blates. "Argentina and Oh'.le are the two best countries lu South America.
