U was also charged that another windfall had been made by a special export subsidy price lasting front Aug. 25 to Sept. 1. Finally, it was charged that all this had been facilitated by a shift of personnel back and forth between leading grain companies and the Agriculture Department. Butz said Saturday that McGovern's charges were "entirely without any substance." He accused McGovern of "engaging in another political flight of fancy" and "jeopardizing a trade .hat is of great benefit to the nation." The agreement provided thatlP r ' ce EARL L. BUTZ Farmers Will Benefit To their surprise, as Butz acknowledged Saturday, the Soviet Union has purchased an estimated 400 million bushels of wheat, and their total purchases are already about $1 billion- four times the obligation. * * · REFERRING to the wheat purchases, McGovern said that the grain exports, with foreknowledge of Soviet intentions, had bought wheat from "many unsuspecting farmers" in the early-harvest states of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas at about 31.3B a bushel. These farmers, he said, were "unaware that if they held their production, prices would rise to current levels (for farm sales) of around $1.65." Conceding that some farmers may have sold wheat at prices around $1.32, Butz insisted that ;he Soviet Union would purchase 'rom private U.S. grain dealers 750 million in grains over three years, with $200 million worth purchased the first year. The Jnited States would extend a ane of credit up to the amount of the total purchase. The U. S. Government role in the agreeement was limited to the extension of credit and the payment of an export subsidy to the grain dealers of the difference between the higher domestic price and the going export *** «*···%* vj-.tyi,, XJLII-/J Jjioioiitaj tfiicii/ wheat, under prov they had not been penalized by not being privy to inside information. "They knew precisely las much as we knew," he said. "They teew as much as the grain companies." F u r t h e r more, 'he said, the farmers as a whole would benefit by the increase in domestic and world prices generated by the deal. In fact, he said, "it has increased the value of farmers' crops by nearly $1 billion." McGovern also suggested that the exporters had made a second windfall through early placement of orders for future delivery at prices that would turn out to be considerably below domestic prices in late summer.
