Now York, July 16.—Week-end developments in tho Ruhr, problem caused a change In Bpeculativo opinion and prices were pushed down sharply for a time in today's extremely dull stock market. The short­ ever, failed to bring about any outside liquidation and prlcos stiffened slightly on a small amount of short covering. Sales ayu-rox-lmatod 275,000 shares. Now York, July 16.— Prices opened somewhat lower lit today's stock market, professional traders launching Immediately into short selling as. a ro- '- suit of tho failure ot tho public to participate in the improved market on Saturday. Lossos of one point each wero recorded by Dupont, Gulf Estates Steel/Baldwin and E'amous Players, whllo practically all ot the oils wore fractionally fewer. \ Selling orders wero concentrated in. tho early dealings against the motors, equipments, oils and steels, with somo of the specialties olso under considerable pressure. Foreign exchanges ' opened lrrogular with Italian lire up five points. With speculative sentiment unfavorably affected by Premier Poincare's speech outlinlun; the yronch attitude in regard to thevltuir tangle, little effort was made to sustain-vprlces during the .forenoon. Gontlrued hlgu money, rates also discouraged buying, •while the vulnerability of -leading industrial shares to pressure encouraged renewed short selling by bear specula' tors. Bevoral scores ot stocks. were pushed' down one to three points. Buying of Studebakvr which rallied a point, dnjected a better tone Into the market at midday, Baldwin, United Slates Steel, Gulf States Steel, American Can, Corn Products, and other favorlties recovering half a -point or more.

The conference, called by Johu A. Whitehurst, president of tho Okla- lahoma state hoard ol'agriculture, was of vital interest W every wheat grower of tho southwest, as it was expected that befornitho 2-day meeting was over tho future course of the wheat growers and wheat marketers would be mapped out. A Large Number. More thaa 400 delegates wore ex- poctcil. * Among tho most prominent speakers at the coniercnco will he: J. C. Mohler, secretary of the Kansas Btate board of agriculture. John A. Whitehurst, president of tho Oklahoma stale hoard of agriculture. George C. Jewell, general manager of the Northwest Wheat "Growers association, Minneapolis, Jdinu. C. J. Oaborno, president, of. tho Nebraska Farmers' Union, Omaha. Nebr. II. M. IJalner, secretary'«ot tho,South­ west Wheat Improvement association, Kansas City, Mo. Curl Williams, member of tho committee to make an international market survey, Oklahoma City. John Mauley, president of tho Oklahoma Wheat Growers' association, Enid, Okla. John Fields, editor of the Oklahoma Farmer, Oklahoma City, j Earl W. Evans, president ot tho 1 board of commerce, Wichita. Can't Be Grown at Profit In dismissing wheat and the wheat grower, Mr. Whitehurst said: "The gradual decline In the prico of wheat since the war lias reached a point wh"re it can no longer he raised at, a profit under the present svstom of fanning and marketing, and unless a change Is made, one of our greatest Industries is in peril. "It is always the tendency to place tho blamo on the other fellow when thing* go wrong, hut'unless the actual cuso of the present condition of the wheat fftruior is found and remedied, the result will bo dlaasterous and far reaching. "Wheat" Is a world grown'commodity and its price can only ho controlled by tho~ supply and demand of tho world.

"Owing to the fact that the United States Is only one of several countries that .produce a surplus of wheat that must bo sold to the markets of the world, It would seem Impossible that its price can ever be regulated by legislation until such time as wo con- sumo all we produce within our own borders. "The railroad rates ore much higher on wheat and flour than ten or fifteen years ago, as they are on other commodities, but this Is explained by the railroads as caused by the incroaso in tho oost of labor and all materials. "The mills are often criticized for tho difference -between the prlco they receive for their products and the price they pay for their wheat, yet the mills always have to pay a premium over fho terminal market or ex port prices and ouly the largo anil well managed mills seem to survive. Legislation Won't Help. "It would eeem Ahat no legislation, will help to regulate tho price, of! wheat so it must bo UP to the farmer j to help himself by producing a quat-j ity ot wheat that will bring the high-' est price, producing It in the most economical manner, and taking the proper care of It after it Is raised. "There is no quostion but that a great deal of the fault lies with the farmer himself, and can bo remedied by hotter farming methods and by a better understanding of tho marketing conditions and of bis own wheat.
