J« <UP) — The Agriculture Department said today [hat the, amount of wheat I the four principal exporting nations were able to save from la.-' year's crop was the smallest In eight years. The report, compiled by the t\e-- parlmenfs Foreign Crops and Markets Division, raised the possibility that deficit nations may have to scrape along this year with cu'n less wheat than the'y had expi uc-l from this and other exporting conn- i tries. The situation probably also will have an effect on American consumer prices. If world compclltloM for wheat drives grain prices ii'Kh- er, it «-ili i )(! reflected in higher domestic retail prices lor meal, poultry a nd dairy producl.s. I The Department said wheat stocks in the four main prociucinc I countries on July 1 — start ol the ! new crop year — were only jvi - i 000,000 bushels. This is K.OM DUO ! bushels- below 194G and the .•jiiwllcsl ' July 1 stocks since 1338, T In addition to the United Stale? the world's major wheat producing! nations arc Canada, Australia and Argentina. Tola! world grain reserves on July 1 were estimate:! by the department at -!0,3(i5,COO short tons an increase of some 20 per ceni over the previous year. Due to Corn Trice Kisc This was due almost entirely tc a sharp rise in world corn reserve? principally in the United States The world corn carry-over was estimated at 917.000.000 bushels, an increase of nearly 50 per cent over 1046- The increase in the American carryover since has been counterbalanced by hot. dry weather In the corn belt which "has cut this year's corn crop several hundred million bushels. The department gave the following picture of other grain reserves in the four main exporting countries July 1: Rye — 18.000.01)0 bushels. This was -slightly higher than a year ago as a result of a near-record crop in Argentina. U. S. stocks at 2.000,000 bushels were unchanged from 104B. Barley — 143.000.0CO bushels. Stocks were estimated to be about I 10 per cent higher than last year.' Domestic reserves were put at a- 1 bout SG.000.000 bushels, also up slightly. 1 Gats _ 413.000.000 bushels. This! is slightly below 1045 although U.S. stocks or some 273.0CO.OOO bushels were still well above average. Although this country now is i cleaning . up . n rccorri-brcaliing-i wheat harvest of 1,427,000,000 bii-i shels. officials have all but given j up hope of meeting their original; export goals because of the disastrous corn failure. ' It had been hoped that American wheat exports would run Ije- j twecn 450.000.000 and 500,000.001 | bushels. Now they are not expected j lo top 400,000,000 bushels at most.: Not Yet Four, Plays Difficult Classical Selections CHICAGO, Aug.'26.
