alone speculators have taken fifty million dol
lars a month Horn the American public during
the last five months. Sixty millions a month
would not be excessive estimate. At the low
er reckoning, however, we are paying up

ish puck of wheat gamblers,' while thousands
of families struggle against ever-increasing
odds to get dailjHbread. And if other necessar

now hold a price-fixing dictatorship were taken
into account, the total tribute which those un
scrupulous interests are wringing from the peo

The sole beneficiaries of this extortion are
the gamblers and monopolists themselves. The
farmer does not share in their preposterous
gains; in fact, every farmer knows that they
are his inveterate foes. Honest merchants and
manufacturers are injured almost as much as
consumers are by the food gamblers’ game and it
is significant indeed that not a single national
trade association is opposed to the Food Con

whether of field or factory, the interests that
sustain the country and make it prosperous, are
entitled to protection against those that are
sapping the nation’s lifeblood*
This woull be true at any time; but it is su
premely imperative at a time when America’s
security and happiness and very existence as a
free nation depend vitally on the effectiveness
with which we meet the food requirements of our
