PAGE TWO High Prices Drive Agriculture Department Out of Egg Market BLYTHEVfLLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS • By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, D«o. 13. ( Rich prlcci have driven the Agriculture Department »j well as some consumers out of the market (or ««*« .Officials said loday the Department his bought none during the last two weeks and less than one half of one per cent. o( the production during the last two months, i For the year to date, the Department has bought about six per wnt of egg production under it price support, program the agency buys epgs only when prices drop to alwut Z5 cents a dozen In the mid-west, 'the surplus producing area of th country. Most of this year's, purchases were made by midsummer. Buying Limited to Dried V.gfs s Its buying has been limited lo dried eggs. These eggs are processed chleflv from low quality, ungraded eggs for which there Is no consumer market. : •'Department buying has been heaviest in the late winter and spring. Egg production Is largest In this period. It, far outstrips cnn- sumer demands. For example, hens this year laid 60 per cent more eggs In Aoril than In November. It Is I'll* difference In rate iif production Hint is largely rrspnnsi- ble for 1 surpluses and low farm prices In the first half of the year and shorter suonlies and high prices In tre last half of the year. Department holdings •• of dried eggs are available for consumer markets but. there Is no demand tor them. Some of the dried esss have been Fold abroad at very low prices. The. Denartment now holds about 8? 500,000 pounds. The Department buys surpluses In the dried form, officials said, because eggs—being highly perishable —can be kept for long periods only in that form.:Furthermore, the type of eggs It buys—being of low srade and quality—would not be suitable for storage in any other form. Hii-h Prtce Factor* .': Officials said several factors contributed to current high prices. Besides the low level of. production they include (1) heavy buying for the armed services, (2) Inability of some producing areas to get supplies to market because-of storm conditions, «n'd '(3) depletion of cold itorage stocks of shell eggs. :Officials said the cold storage Industry .'undoubtedly would hsve •tored more eggs from the surplus 'production last spring If It hart expected prices to go as high as they have. : -: : .• • .- . -> Department : experts- expect a •harp drop In egg prices next month.

(AP>— The Marines Lower Casualty Figures Estimates of Loss** in Korean Trap ar« Cut by 50 Per Cent WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. (AP) — Marine headquarftrs yesterday scaled down It* estimates of the casualties suffered by the Marine Division In breaking out of the Chinese Communist trap In the Changjin Reservoir area of Korea. The Marines put the figure at 3.000 to 3.300 »nd .said the number Includes those disabled by sickness and exposure to winter weather. Actual battle tosse.s — in fctlled, wounded and missing—were estimated at about half the total. At 1t% strength The headquarters supplied the new casualty toll after Marine officials had given varying estimates on the basis of a field report. This report said the division's three Infantry regiments were only at 70 per cent strength after the 10-day battle. The first estimates ranged up to 6.500 and were calculated. In part, on the assumption that other units had suffered about the same losses as the infantry groups. The revised figure would make the total casualties roughly equal to the World War II Marine lasses In the 70-hoiur battle for Tarawa The Tarawa toll Ls limited, however, lo actual battle casualties.

"No report of activities or locations of friendly troops except In terms of divisional units or separate United Nations forces and tint) only when the unit Is In firm contact with the enemy." Echols said also that all field correspondents in Korea will be asked to submit to local headquarters copies of their stories on military matters within eight hours of filing but not before they are filed U a pubjlc Information officer fee* upon reading them that security has been violated, he will refer the story to Tokyo headquarters.
