MARTYR Hunger Striker's Body Heads Home LONDON (AP) - The body of Irish hunger striker Michael Gaughan headed back Saturday to a martyr's funeral in the Irish Republic. The casket was escorted by eight Irish Republican Army men in black turtle neck sweaters, black berets and dark glasses. Several spectator's booed the cortege on the way to London airport and one woman called out: "That's the'way they should all go back to Ireland." First Crop Report Scheduled WASHINGTON I/PI - The Agriculture Department will issue on Monday the first of a series of crop production reports that over the next four months will have an important bearing on how farmers and consumers can expect to fare in the coming year. Most important in the report will be the department's new estimate of 1974 winter wheat production. The estimate, made from surveys on June 1, comes as the harvest in the Southern Great Plains gathers 'momentum. The most recent estimate put the winter wheat crop at more than 1.6 billion bushels, a record and up substantially from an initial projection made last December. In addition, according to forecasters, the 1974 harvest of spring- planted wheat could be 560 million bushels. . Thus, say USDA officials, it looks as if U.S. wheat output this year may near 2.2 billion bushels. The report Monday will provide -a better look at that analysis. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz and other administration officials, alarmed by consumer reaction over soaring fool prices, have repeatedly attempted to assure the public that larger crops this year is the best way to attack the problem. But the prospects of large crops -- of record proportion in the case of wheat and corn -- also pose problems for farmers, who have seen their expenses rise because of overall inflation in the economy. There is always a possibility that record harvests will mean drastically lower prices and therefore smaller profits on the farm. The wheat report will be only a partial reflection of 1974 crop production. Estimates of spring wheat.output based on field conditions will not begin until July, and the first solid estimate of 1974 corn production wil! not be until August. M e a n w h i l e , t h e British Home Office announced that five other Irish prisoners had ended their own h u n g e r strikes in British jails. Gaughan, 24, died Monday in Parkhurts prison on the Isle of Wight after a 64-day fast. He was to be buried in his birthplace, Ballina, County Mayo, in the Irish republic. During a requiem mass at the Church of the Sacred Heart in London's Kilburn district, he was hailed as a "martyr to Irish freedom." Brendan Magill, an IRA leader in England, said in a eulogy that Gaughan, who was serving a seven-year sentence for a London bank robbery aimed at raising funds for the IRA, "is as much a hero to the ordinary people in the jails as he is to the Irish nation." * * * THE BRITISH Home Office announced late Friday that Dolours and Marion Price had taken their first voluntary nourishment in 205 days. They were both serving life sentences in Brixton prison for their part in a series of bombings in March 1973 in London in which 228 were wounded and one man died. The Home Office announced Saturday that Hugh Feeney in Gartree prison, Gerard Kelly in Wormwood Scrubbs and Frank Stagg in Parkhurst on the Isle of Wight had also taken liquid nourishment. There was no official word · on why the five ended their strikes. Feeney and Kelly were serving life sentences for the 1973 London bombings and Stagg was sentenced to 10 years in jail March 31 for conspiracy to organize an IRA unity rally in Coventry. The five were admitted IRA members and were fasting in support of demands to be treated as political prisoners, to benefit from an amnesty and to be transferred to jails in Northern Ireland. . . All five were reported in fair condition. The Price sisters, Feeney and Kelly began their hunger strikes Nov. 15, the day after their conviction for the London bombings. They were forcibly fed for a time but prison officials halted the practice several weeks ago when the five actively resisted. The end of the h u n g e r strikes arroused unofficial speculation about a possible deal with British Home Secretary Roy Jenkins who had said it would be "possible and reasonable" for the sistevs to be transferred to Northern Ireland jails. Jenkins said he would not act under the "duress" of a hunger strike. Authorities denied any deal to end the hunger strikes. SANDALS FOR HER Reg. 2.99 ea. Vinyl; man made sole, heel.
