Coofweof/ier 6 «" n »'" are taken may subside *>y By UK Associated Press Milder weather crept across the midcontinenl today, easing out a late-April chill that again dropped temperatures below freezing overnight from the Great Lakes through the central Appalachians. Freeze warnings irere in effect before dawn in northern Lower Michigan and in the mountain areas of Maryland and Virginia. light snow and rain lingered in portions of Montana, and driizle and fog dampened the western Plains from South Dakota into northern Texas. Thunderstorms and locally heavy rains persisted in Texas from the Big Bend region to Arkansas. More than 2.5 inches of rain swamped Ballinger, Tex. A flash-flood watch was up in north-central Texas south of Waco. • Showers splashed into the Pacific Northwest and, across the country, from New York into New England. Isolated showers spilled over sections of Tennessee. Fair skies dominated the kr Southwest, much of the Plains and Midwest and the Southeast. Temperalures overnight ranged from 26 at Marquctle, Mich., to 77 al Key West, Fla., and Corpus Chrisli, Tex. Sugar beet plant plans announced WINGER, Minn. (AP) - A Winger group says it has lined up M per cent of the financing for a J100 million sugar beet refinery and protein plant complex. The protein factory, to be constructed by a Swiss engineering firm, would convert wastes from the Winger Cheese Co. and pulp from the proposed beet plant into animal feed. Area farmers have been asked to provide about $300 per acre for the remaining 20 per cent of the financing, a spokesman for the Winger Sugar Beet Refinery Development Council said Wednesday. Winger Mayor Jarvis Zitow said the proposed cooperative would need about 75,000 acres of beets and he has no signed agreements. WALLACE R. COLE, D.C.

MISNEAPOUS (AP) - The sale of 3.4 metric tons of grain to the Soviet Union by American firms .seemed to catch market traders by surprise, says an official of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. Alvin Donahoo, executive vice president of ihe exchange, one of the nation's largest, said that the sale announced Wednesday had been predicted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but not by traders in the grain market. "There'd been talk of a sale, maybe a little smaller than this one but I was talking to an experienced guy this afternoon who had planned lo go on vacation and changed his plans because of all this activity," Donahoo said.

The'Agriculture Department said late Wednesday that Russia has bought 3.4 millionmetric tons of grain, the first round of sales since early last November. The new sales had been anticipated by department experts for several months. Although USDA declined to identify the firms, Continental Grain Co., New York, announced later that it had sold two million tons of the grain. Other companies involved, according to trade sources, were Cook Industries, Memphis, Tern., and Cargill, Inc., Minneapolis, Minn. The department said a total of two million tons of corn involved in the sales would come from the 1975 harvest. That boosted to about 15.8 million tons the amount of grain sold (o the Soviets last July, including about 11.4 million tons of feed grain, nearly all corn, and 4.4 million tons of wheat. A metric ton is 2,205 pounds and is equal to 39.4 bushels of —THE WEATHER April Weather 1975-76 - mi- Mi!

It is the unit most commonly used in international grain-trade. The new sales have been "counted" in official export projections for some time and will not materially affect consumer food prices, according to department experts. Record grain crops last year have led to a modest buildup of U.S. reserves and the department says farmers could harvest huge new crops this year if they get normal weather. About 1.4 million tons of the new grain, including 1.1 million of corn and 300,000 of wheat, will be delivered to Russia after Oct. 1 from this year's harvest. Under terms of the five-year pact signed last fall, Russia will buy at least six million tons of wheat and corn annually. The agreement also allows the Sonets to purchase up to eight million tons a year, but if they want more they must consult with VJS. officials. The grain bought from last year's harvest is not counted as • part of the five-year agreement and is being sought by Russia to help meet current needs. A drought-damaged grain crop last year, which fell far short of requirements, forced Russia to buy grain on the world market, including the 15.8 million tons so far from the United States. When the long-term agreement was announced last Oct. 20, U.S. .officials said Russia would be able to buy a total of around 17 million tons of grain from the 1975-76 supply without further discussions. Now, with 15.8 million purchased, Russia is within about 1.2 million tons of that limit. Despite the substantial sales to Russia, those are a fraction of total U.S. grain exports this season. Wheat shipments in 1975-76, for example, are expected to total about 32.7 million tons to all countries and corn about 39.4 million, according to USDA.
