CHICAGO, July 27.-( P)-The'
Grain Market Analyst club, num-
bering the leading grain statisti-
cians and crop experts as its mem-
bers, blamed steadily increasing
supplies and efforts to withhold the
surplus from the market for the
present world wheat situation.
The analysis, released Sunday,
said that wheat had very little val- i
ue except for human food, and "aI
surplus beyond human consumptive
capacity means a cumulative un-
wanted surplus that forces price

Continuing, the analysis said:
Bill" Murray, back from his martial
law camp at the Dpnison-Durant
toll bridge, commanded the state
highway department today to obey
the orders of the federal court he
had previously defied.
A federal injunction issued at
Muskogee Saturday forbade state
interference with persons using the
bridge and dissemination of infor-
mation along the highways direct-
ing traffic to the free bridge.

"Efforts to attribute responsibil-
ity for present low wheat prices to
market manipulation, short selling
or Russian dumping, break down
entirely in the face of a tremendous
and growing world surplus of wheat
in comparison with world require-
ments. This surplus represents the
patriotic effort to stimulate wheat
production in North America, Ar-
gentina, and Australia during the
World war, to fill the void left by
the withdrawal of Russia from the
field of world supply.
5 Years Show Sharp Increase.
The world wheat supplies have
been increasing more rapidly annu-
ally during the last five years, than
could be absorbed at prevailing
prices, the report continued. In the
I first five9years of the decade, from
1920 to 1925, world available sup-
plies averaged 3,525,000,000 bushels
per year, and consumption 3,220,-
In the second half of the decade,
from 1925 to 1930, supplies aver-1
j age 4,000,000,000 bushels yearly,'
and consumption 3,365,000,000 bu-
shels annually, the analysts said.
Last year, available supplies were
4,365,000,000 bushels and consump-
tion about 3,765,000,000 bushels.
"In other words, surpluses were
steadily increasing," the report con-
Individual Efforts Bad.
"Efforts, either by individual co-
operation like the Canadian pools,
or governmental operations like the
federal farm board, or state efforts
in Australia to temporarily hold the
surplus off the market, only make
the situation worse in the end,
through holding out the hope of se-
curing profitable prices and en-
couraging a continued excess of
acreage and excessive production.
"The prestige of the government,
backed by hundreds of millions of
dollars, cannot overturn the imnu-
table law of supply and demand,
and such effortscontinued, only to
serve to waste the creation of furth-
er surplus when it is the existence
of that surplus which is the funda-
mental cause of the trouble."

Auburn type were unnecessary

"The millions of dollars now em-
ployed to construct elaborate maxi-
mum-security poison," it said,
"could with much better advan-
tage, be used in the development
and proper financing of adequate
systems of probation and parole."
Under the proposed system all
prisoners would be paid wages
their treatment would be more hu-
manized, the choosing of prison of-
ficials would be emoved from poli-
tics, and guards would be trained
specifically for their task.
It was advocated that 'no man
