Last July 29, ministration's decision to help Latin America stabilize world coffee prices will make a cup of coffee cost more--but not much more--officials s a i d Saturday. They cautioned housewives against worrying that prices may jump to SI or more a pound. But they conceded ;hat if coffee imports are controlled and prices set internationally, coffee would cost a little more than it now does at the grocery store. * * * * SINCE SEVERAL U. S. missions have returned from Latin American survey trips, the Kennedy administration has become seriously concerned about improving re lations with those countries. Approximately 14 countries there depend cither wholly or in part on coffee imports for American dollars.

They will be presented at next month's Inter-American E c o n o m i c Conference in Montevideo Uruguay, called at the request of President Kennedy to set up machinery for the alliance for progress program. The basic problem is t h e continuing overproduction of coffee. At the moment, the world is 40 million 132-pound bags. The administration is prepared to demand production curbs in return for entering into a price stabilization agreement as the world's largest consuming nation. * * * * TO STOP THE overproduo tion and resulting price de creases, U. S. officials are considering several steps. A new international coffee agreement between producing and consuming countries to guarantee stable prices over a period of years. Producing countries would agree to enforce production controls according to assigned quotas so that higher prices would not result in more production. An international organization to buy buffer stocks which would be stored in big production years and sold when production drops thereby guaranteeing a s t a b l e market. Some assurance whereby L a t i n American countries would agree to diversify their agriculture in return for the American assistance. Administration of f i c i a 1 s agree that the United States would have to pay a major share of the cost of buffer stocks. But the tab would be picked up by the taxpayer, not by the housewife when she buys a pound of coffee lat the store. (AffverllsemenO ACKACHE AT MAY CO.
