Volume 36, Number 4 i) .... Sundance, Wyoming, Thursday, December .4th, 1931 Official County Paper. Farm Board Plans To Use Surplus Wheat Stock For Unemployed of Nation The Senate agricultnre eommittee ~Saturday approved a bill authoriz- ing the farm board to give 40,000,- 000 bushels of i,ts surplus wheat for feeding the unemployed. It will be n'essed for action in the Senate Monday. The wheat would be turned over ,to the Red Cross or any otiler char- itable organization showing proper qualifications. The farm board has :taken the po- sition it cannot distribute its wheat to the needy under present laws, since it wouhl 'have to be paid for. The Capper bill provide~ for the gov- ernment to meet the ,cost. This is the language: "The federal ~farm board shall keep account of all wheat furnished and'delivered as provided herein and shall report ,the average ,cost of :such wheat to ~the board as a credit again- st its revolving fund," Chairman Jones of the House ag- riculture committee whleh met Sat- urday for ,the first ,tdlne this session, :said he could ,see "no objection to ,heiphig the farm board ge't rid of its wheat provided some sensible, plan oF repayment is worked out." H~ added, however, that his com- mittee likely would wait for 'the Senate to work out a bill for that purpose, "since it had already s,tart- ed and ,there is no use of duplicating ,the work."
