KELLY BRYANT Secretary of State State of Arkansas More beef, but less pork, poultry is seen WASHINGTON (AP) American families will be able to put more beef on the dinner table next year but not as much chicken and pork because of a changing supply situation, government specialists say. Spokesmen for Department of Agriculture commodity specialists said consumers can look forward to a glut of grass-fed cattle coming on the market this fall. The total cattle herd has increased by about 7 million head this year. At the same time, however, poultry and pork production are declining because of rising feed and corn prices. Agriculture specialists predicted the poultry industry will market 10 to 20 per cent fewer broiler chickens in the first half of 1975 than in 1974, while pork production will decline about 5 to 10 per cent in the same period. Meanwhile, Agriculture Sec• retary Earl L. Butz said U.S. LEGAL NOTICE food prices will not climb as PHOP P» S .1£,S9£5J I I U Z IONAL shar P lv next vear as this year- He predicted that prices in 1975 will go up less than 10 per cent. This year, they are expected to rise at least 15 per cent, the most since right after World WarH. Butz also told a news conference Monday he did not believe a recent claim that there is less than a one-month reserve in world food supplies. "This frightens people. This simply is not true.

KELLY BRYANT Secretary of State State of Arkansas that," Butz said. Butz referred to a statement by lister R. Brown of the Overseas Development Council at a recent population conference in Bucharest, Romania, in which he said the world was nearly running out of food and had only a 27-day supply. Butz said that figure took into consideration only the reserve of grains held by exporting nations, such as the United States, but did not include reserves held by countries that import grain. "Most of all he completely ignored this tremendous livestock inventory in this country, in Europe, in the whole southern hemisphere," the secretary said. Butz said that when livestock and grain stockpiles in importing countries are taken into account, the world food supply could last nearly 500 days. The council here said Brown still was in Europe and not available for comment. However, a spokesman confirmed that Brown had used only major grain exporting countries, including the United States, Australia, Argentina and Canada, as sources for his 27-day food claim. "But the point is that regardless of supplies in food-importing countries, the 27-day reserve is all that there is if any of them want to buy food," the council spokesman said. food reserve much greater than New cars will cost 14.5 per cent more LEGAL NOTICE aini'iiilinciil.

WITNESS my hand and seal as Clerk of this Court on the 15th day of August, 1974. Leona Cole. Clerk Aug. 20, 27; Sept. 3, 10: 1974 DETROIT (AP) — Car buyers will be paying up to 14.5 per cent more for a new car from General Motors this fall, including a 10.3 per cent boost in the price of the Chevrolet Impala, the nation's best selling car. And according to a 1975 modal base price list released Monday, GM's three new sporty subcompacts will list for about $4,000 each. Of the 176 models in GM's lineup this fall, only two will list for under $3,000. Both are Vegas. GM's lowest-priced car, the two-door Vega sedan, is going up $295 or 11.8 per cent to $2,799. The most expensive GM car, the Cadillac Fleetwood four-door limousine, will cost $14,570 this fall, up $1,316 or 0.9 per cent. The base price list gives the manufacturer's suggested retail price for each model, not including options, shipping charges or state and local taxes. Last week GM said the price increase on its equipped 1975 models would average $416 or 8.2 per cent. That figure included an average $70 rollback from a price increase announced the week before and took into account popular options ordered with each model. GM said options are going up an average 2.8 per cent in price across the line. GM, the auto industry's price leader, is the first car maker to disclose 1975 base nrices fnr each model. Its competitorsn Ford Motor Co., Chrysler Corp. anu American Motors, are expected to raise prices in line with those set by GM. According to the base price list, GM cars will be going up between 3 and 14.5 per cent, with the new compacts reflecting the largest increases. Most models will be going up eight to 12 per cent. For example, the lowest- priced compact Chevrolet Nova is going up $407 or 14.5 per cent to $3,218, and the compact Pontiac Ventura coupe is going up $414 or 14.3 per cent to $3,306. The compact Oldsmobile Omega coupe will cost $3,435 this fall, up $392 or 12.9 per cent. The lowest-priced Chevrolet Impala, the No. 1 seller in the country, will cost $4,561 this fall, a $426 or 10.3 per cent increase. Similarly, the full-size Pontiac Catalina, will be up $435 or 10.4 per cent to $4,625. Chevrolet's new sporty subcompact Monza will list for $3,966, $1,000 more than the Vega and $300 more than the sporty compact Camaro, which the Monza resembles in a smaller package. The 8-cylinder Camaro will cost $3,698, Morton Henkin SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) Morton Henkin, 62, president of KSOO-TV and KPAT-FM in Sioux Falls, died Monday. He was active in broadcasting for 38 years, and was president and general manager of KSOO- TV in Sioux Falls until the property was sold in the past year. Fulbright will make China visit WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., will lead a bipartisan congressional delegation on a two-week visit to China, the White House an^ nounced Monday. Jerald F. TerHorst, the White House press secretary, said the trip was arranged during Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's visit to Peking in November. A spokesman for Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the senator could not accept an invitation last fall to visit the country. "He is happy to have this opportunity to visit China," the spokesman said, "because he believes relations between America and that country are very important." The White House could not supply information on the itinerary of the group, explaining that it was arranged by the Chinese. "They don't normally inform these groups until they're on the ground," a member of the National Security Council's staff said. He added, though, that the delegation had been asked to' meet with top officials of the Chinese government. Rep. Peter Frelinghuysen, R- N.J., is to be deputy chief of the delegation, which will include Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey, D-Minn., and Hiram Fong, R-Hawaii, and Reps. Clement Zablocki, D-Wis., William Broomfield, R-Mich., and Barbara Jordan, D-Tex. The group is to leave Monday. Civil War canteens were made from wood because of metal shortages.

PEACE Administratrix Route 1, Box 240 Hope, Arkansas 71801 Aug. 27, Sept. 3; 1974 Mills vows to fight gasoline tax increase LITTLE ROCK (Af) — Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., vowed Monday to fight a proposal to increase the federal gasoline tax by 10 cents a gallon, and said he did not think President Kord had even seen the proposal. Mills told the Southern Farmers Cooperative meeting that he thought the proposal came from within the Treasury Department. "I don't think the President has even had it before him," said Millsm "The Secretary of the Treasury has not even recommended it. It is being tried as a trial balloon, I think, by people within the office of the Treasury, below the secretary. "I'll guarantee you one thing, as long as I am chairman of the committee, it'll never see the light of day," Mills said. "It'll never get out of the committee." Mills also discussed various tax reform proposals being considered by his committee. One would exclude taxation of profits on the sale of a house when the sale price was $35,000 or less. The prevision previously capplied only to taxpayers over 65 years of age. "Since in the present housing market, a large portion of the gain represents inflation rather than profit, the committee felt tha the present law was imposing an undue burden on the middle-income taxpayers and it is felt that this provision will provide more equitable treatment." The committee's suggestions also cover what Mills called a "new simplification deduction." Mills said this new method would simplify tax deductions for those taxpayers who itemize their deductions. He said for simplification purposes, the committee had modified the deduction for casualty losses, eliminated some gasoline tax deductions, modified some medical deductions and put a floor on "miscellaneous deductions." Labor groups donate about *3,000 to Pryor LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas labor groups gave about $3,000 to the primary campaign of David H. Pryor, the Democratic nominee for governor, J. Bill Becker, president of the state AFL-ClO, said Monday night. Of this amount, Becker said, $1,000 came from the state AFL-CiO. He said he was sure the $1,000 was contributed upon a request from someone working in the Pryor campaign. "We don't make contributions to a candidate unless the candidate or the finance director of the campaign makes a request," he said. Becker said the AFL-CIO had not received a request from the Pryor campaign for any additional contributions. "We are not ashamed of the contributions we made to the candidates," Becker said. "It'd be perfectly all right (with the AFL-CIO) if the candidates made full disclosures, including the money we contribute." Becker made the remarks two days after Ken Coon of Conway, the Republican nominee for governor, called on the AFL-CIO to disclose the contri butions it has made in the governor's race Coon also told the AFL-CIO at its convention Saturday that one of the gubernatorial candidates had been labeled "labor's man." As expected, Pryor got the endorsement of the AFL-CIO. Of Coon's speech, Becker said", "I think he was soliciting a negative reaction. The convention was very cordial to him.' "I think he was hoping for not just a negative response, but a vocal reaction. He tried to anger the delegates. I think he was appealing to the antila- bor sentiment in Arkansas." Coon said he was pleased that Becker had answered his challenge. But, Coon said he would have preferred a written list showing the respective organizations and the amounts of money they gave to the Pryor campaign. "This is just the beginning of our effort to expose secret contributions," Coon declared. He said Pryor had reported $168,000 in expenditures in the primary and that with labor's contributions totaling about $3,000, there was still $165,000 unaccounted for. He said he had written Jackson a letter about the AFL- CIO's positions on four proposed constitutional amendments and that he also would contact the Democratic party.
