v^^ . Farmer Roswell Carst, who hosted Nikita Khrushchev in 1959fsays the U.S. should sell grain to all nations, even to the Communists. Tte American Farmer Sneaks His Mind by Fred Kiewit COON RAPIDS, IOWA. I iving and working still on the Iowa farm where he hosted Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1959, Roswell (Bob) Carst, 78, proudly discussed two of his achievements: Serving the American consumer well by selling hybridization (high-yielding grains and animals) to Corn Belt farmers and pioneering agricultural trade with the Soviet Union. No one argues the merits of hybrid seeds and chickens. But the second grows more controversial by the year. The key question is whether foreign grain sales,'particularly to the centrally controlled economies, are in the U.S. interest. Also of immediate concern is their effect on food prices here at home. It is a subject which begs for factual discussion and plain, unemotional talk. Though he speaks today through a buzzing, battery-powered resonator because of a throat-cancer operation, Garst remains vigorous and loquacious. He is confident the results of his work complement, rather than complicate, the American life-style. "I probably have had as much to do with holding down food costs as anybody," he said. "I was a wild enthusiast about fertilizer. I was a wild enthusiast about hybrid seed. I have never made any apologies about that." Pocketbook issues dominate And it is the price of grain that will probably keep Carst and his neighbors Republican in the election. They know a new farm bill must pass Congress next year to replace the expiring 1973 act. and a COP President would be more likely to stand for free markets, at least in theory. The farmers fear a Democratic Administration would press legislation leading to a strong reentry of government into farming and a large federal grain reserve that would tend to depress grain prices. However, because of the strength of two dozen liberal farm groups, neither continued Introducing Pillsbury's new family drink mk with half the sugar. Half the sugar makes sense for the whole family. Pillsbury knew that a drink mix with just half the sugar would make a lot of sense for your entire family. Because while reducing your family's sugar intake, it would reduce calories, too. So we squoze sugar in half. Result: Squoze, with only half the sugar and half the calories of most pre-sweeteneddrink mixes. Half the sugar makes a great tasting all-family drink.

Half the sugar means a lower price. ^ New Squoze has a much p'' " lower everyday price per '---w «s quart than any other leading pre-sweetened drink mix.
