Section 4 of the Food Administra-
tion Act makes it unlawful for any
person dealing in necessaries, to en-
age in any discriminatory or unfair
practices or make any unjust or un- |
reasonable rates. The practice, there- r
fore, of threshermen charging a bonus
for threshing one farmer's crop ahead
of another, is plainly a discrimination
prohibited by this act and should not
be indulged in either by the farmers
threshermen. The County Food
Administrators are requested to co-op-
rate in securing the observance of
these maximum prices.
The committee which recommended
these prices, consisted of the under-
sell as chairman, Dr. Stratton D.
Brooks, president of the State Univer-
sity and former food administrator;
Dr. J. W. Cantwell, president of the
A. & M. College; Mr. L. P. Daniels, a
nrmer from Kay County, and Mr.
I(ilixi Scott, president of the State
Mr. Scott thought the range of
prices shoul 1 be eight, eighteen, four
teen and fifteen cents, instead of those
adopted, but the report of the majority
was approved wihout a dissenting vote
by the State Council of Defense and
the farmers and threshermen present.
