loflfl Dtocn v. j«n. a, mi , in. H, nil BEFORE YOU BUV Mooe looms for lovers of wool .j. %-.,.-, ,.. By MARGARET DANA The shortage of wool has hit home with many consumers who can't buy woolen goods because stores. 5km't stock them. Shoppers will be glad to hear hope looms ahead -especially a reader who wrote of her inability to purchase wool clothing, and woolen yarns; · She; -writes, "Wool makesSvinter a lot warmer fijf us, ... We're supposed to ; be buying less and more carefully, so why can't I find wool fabrics- that- could easily last me3ive or even 10 years? Istffthat better buying?" . -Last .year word came Asit numerous Australian %oo\ growers had shifted 'out of wool production because their high production of .wool for 1968-69 caused -prices to drop in 1971 to i; 30-year low. As a resii^i'Avool production felLby-22 per cent in the five; 'years ending in 1974. World_ production dropped '.Job, bj^Ci per cent :No$^lJat wool is following -the rule of supply and .gernand, prices went up ; and- .wool growers went ·bacKniito business or in- .creased-thetr flocks. THE WOOL BUREAU Inc., which studies and cheeks wool supplies everywhere, says Australia's wool production in 1974-75 will be up 10 per cent, and wool production will increase 3 per cent over last year. Then what's the problem? Though Australia is not the only wool-growing nation, the o f f i c i a l Australian Wool Corporation has set a floor price for wools sold at auction, trying to keep a fairly stable price this time. If the bid at the wool auction in Australia is not above the floor price, a corporation buys it and keeps it until the price is up again. There are six major wool-growing, countries: A u s t r a l i a , the Soviet Union, N e w Z e a l a n d , Argentina, South Afrjca and the United States. Whj don't these produce enough to supply world wool demands? Russia consumes all the wool it produces and imports large amounts of wool from Australia and New Zealand. Japan grows no wool, and for years has been buying about 40 per cent of the wool offered at the Australian auction. Other countries have comp l i c a t i o n s because of government-set export taxes which distort the price of their wools. What about the United States? Why can't we produce enough for our own use and just depend on that? The fact is that the United States used 210 million pounds of wool in 1973 but only 48 million pounds of that came from our own sheep. The rest of our crop -- 27 million pounds -- was exported. Added to this is the fact that only apparel wool -no carpet wool -- is grown in the United States. EVERY COUNTRY in the world needs wool. To keep it coming, all growers must increase / their production to meet demand -- and they can't, unless they earn a profit doing so. The basic cause of this up-and-down pricing, demand and supply is the increased use of m a n made fibers which, in the last decade, have come more and more to resem- ble the feel and often some of the performance of natural wool. And the synthetics were lower- priced. U.S. consumers, particularly, accepted the substitute and wool producers found price competition difficult. What's happening now is that careful consumers are rediscovering what wool offers that other fibers, however important and useful, can't: a natural resistance to flame, a more extended machine Dining cheap in ·Phyll's orange dessert- Ifkmnce can unpeclcd halved apricots in light : "syrup ; 2 laBlQpoons rum .:; Membrane-free sections from 6 medium , v · olanges '. f to IVi cups flaked coconut ; v Brain; apricots and puree them with 2 tablespoons of .their Syrup, in an electric blender; stir in rum.

By ELEANOR OSTMAN Rldder News Service ST. PAUL, MINN. - A 12-course P e k i n g d u c k dinner for nine people for $8 -- impossible in an inflationary era? Not in Poking, China, where the $8 tab included eight bottles of sorghum whiskey. Eating in China was one of the joys of a 40,000- m i l e , s i x - w e e k t r i p t h r o u g h t h e People's Republic of C h i n a for David Silvian who was filming for the Public Broadcasting Corporation. Oriental cooking was a hobby for Silvian when he lived and worked for an educational television station in Hawaii. He has a notebook full of typed recipes accumulated from friends and restaurants there. The hobby led to producing a Chinese cooking show with Titus Chan t i t l e d "The C h a n e s e Way", which appeared on e d u c a t i o n a l c h a n n e l s throughout the nation. Silvian recently moved his three cats and his wok 'cooking utensil) to St. Paul to become a producer for the M i n n e s o t a Educational TV Network. Over a lunch of mahi- mahi, a fish that became his favorite in Hawaii, Silvian recounted his travels in China. The trip was a surprise to him. He'd mentioned to a Chinese friend in Hawaii that when foreigners were permitted into Mainland C h i n a a f t e r President Nixon's visit, he'd like to be allowed to film Chinese lifestyle and culture for public television. Silvian did not know t h a t his friend was a friend of China's C h a i r man Mao. He was amazed to get a telegram from Peking shortly thereafter that his visa had been approved. S i l v i a n h a d n ' t even applied. IN MAY, 1973, Silvian and three .other members of his film crew crossed into China. They were the second U.S. television t e a m allowed into the country, preceded only by NBC w h i c h recorded the historic table-tennis m a t c h e s t h a t led to Nixon's visit. A l t h o u g h o t h e r networks have since been in, Silvian, to his knowledge, is the only one who's been invited b a c k . His object i v e approach on two shows may be the reason. He and his team shot 30,000 feet of film which resulted in hour shows on "The Children of China" and "Arts and Crafts of China" which will be rep e a t e d on P u b l i c Television this spring. "My whole premise was to p r o d u c e v i s u a l 'pro- g r a m s without making any commentary." He interviewed Chinese doctors and art specialists for their opinions but kept · his own out of the script. CHARGE . IT!

It already has begun its U.S. comeback, especially in home-sewing fabrics, knitting wools, blankets and upholstery. If consumers make their demand for wool heard, wool will increase in availability and prices can be, expected to stabilize at current figures. "1 don't believe it's possible to impose one culture on another." Yet he has observations to make in conversation. ."Children," he said, "have a nice life in China until they're 12; after that i t ' s all downhill." W h e n he r e t u r n s to China, perhaps next summer, he'll complete filming for a documentary on the women of China. On this last trip he visited a good m a n y homes. He knows how Chinese women live, how they cook, sharing one kitchen with three families, how they have to shop daily because there's no refrigeration: Few travelers go into China, he said, :because cars, interpreters and armed guards are needed f o r each p a r t y , " T h e guards, in Silyian's view, are not to keep the film crew in line but to protect them from leftist groups who don't want friendly relations with the U.S. ·Chicken-*-- LONG BEACH 3200 E.
