FRIDAY, JULY «, 1990 Bf.TTHKVH.I.K fARK.) CfHmTK* NKW» PAGE THREE U.S. Plans Report to S/iow Pub/ic Food Is Plentiful jj. WASHINGTON, July 21. (AP)—Disturbed by increases in prices and evidence o£ con- •Jfcer hoarding, the government is working on a report to convince the public that it ne«<i not fear food shortages. The report, being drafted by th« Agriculture Department, will be made public Saturday night. R*pe»ted assurances by President* Truman »nd Secretary of Agrl- Belgians Ready For Riot Duty Trouble I* Expected On Eve of Leopold's Return 'to Throne culture Brannan that food supplies are plentiful were said by officials to have slowed down, but not stopped, the heavy consumer buying of sugar, canned goods and other nonperishable foods that started with the Korean war. Officials hoped that » detailed report, giving statistical information on supplies and production prospects of various major food items, would serve as a clincher their argument that there is Justification for hoarding or for price Increases. War's Market Effects The report is being prepared by the department's Bureau of Agricultural Economics and will take into account the possible effects o! the war and Increased mllitarj spending on the market for (ooc and farm products. It Is expected to say that, on Ihe basis of present conditions, there Is no valM reason for « icr Krnrrll level ot food prices nj Ihe next six months. ces of some foods, It will say should go down in the fall—par ticularly meats. Slaughter supplie of meat animals will Increase from the normal low levels of the summe to put a much larger supply. o meats in butcher shops. Tlie report Is expected to stal that large farm production, plus bi cold-storage stocks, should maintai supplies of eggs and 'poultry high levels, with prices advancin only slightly from summer quota tions. Wheat Supply Gooil ' I* »'lll point out that suppli of wheat for flour and bake products are 30 to 40 per cent i bove anticipated market demarv for the grain. It also will sta that feed grain supplies are amp to maintain production of mca' milk and poultry products at higher level than at present. It to expected to report that milk production is at near record levels, with a part of the supply being diverted into government surplus stocks in the form of butter, cheese and dried mine. Supplies of fresh, canned and frown fruits »re expected to be about 11 per cent less than last year and about 4 per cent below aver;e, reflecting spring freeze dam- f. The peach supply is likely to do^rn a fourth from last year. VraH Pilila May Rise A* a consequence, somewhat high •r prices ar« anticipated for fruits • ProspecU point toward abundant aupplies of fresh »nd processed veg- etabtas, Including potatoes, sweel potatoes, dry beans »nd pens. Record-large stocks have been depressing farm prices of dry beans. Tht report undoubtedly will paini a favorable picture of supplies of food fats and oils. Pall and winter production of lard is -expected to b« larger than a year ago. Vegetable oil supplies, on the other hand, may be a Uttle smaller, reflecting atnaUer acreages of cotton, peanuts Vew Rocket r est Slated "or Monday LONG R A N O B PROVING ,ROUND, COCOA, Pla., July 21.
