High-PHcedRiceis **xzzzr a Government Attacks Double-Digit Inflation Still a Good Bargain By Gay nor Maddox (NBA Writer) Rice supplies basic nutrition to more than half of the world's people. But whether you in North America buy it in 10-pound bags or in one-pound cartons you are finding the price amazingly high. What is behind the spectacular jump in price? James Naive, leader of the Grain Program Area of the Economics Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, explains hi part: "In 1973 there was a poor rice crop in Asia and the rest of the world. Yet the demand continued strong — rice is an essential food in many countries. That jerked up the price. "Then we suffered the effects of tropical storm Delia in the South where rice is principally grown. The result was a loss of about 5 per cent of the American crop. "Of our American-grown crop of rice we consume only about 40 per cent. But of that 40 per cent, about 10 per cent goes into the making of beer. That may surprise many people. We drink around 10 per cent of the rice grown in this country. We export about 60 per cent of the American rice crop. That makes us the largest exporter in the world. "But compared to the vast production of mainland China, for example, our export total is not very large. It is only a spit in the bucket." He predicts a larger crop this year. Favorable growing conditions throughout the world should cause price adjustments. "But," he adds, "people can't lose sight of the fact that we are living in a time of steadily rising inflation." Another rice expert is Taylor A. Prewitt Jr., president of the Rice Council. The Council is a nonprofit organization of rice farmers, millers and other segments of the industry in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Their purpose is to help increase the use of rice. "The price has risen greatly, but there are inescapable reasons for that," says Prewitt, also a rice producer. "Even so, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, half cup of rice costs 3.79 cents as against half a cup of potatoes for 4.92 cents. And remember, rice is perfect for Church Services HOLY SPIRIT PARISH Carroll, Iowa Rt. Rev. Msgr. Leo F. Lenz, V.F.

He hopes to see rice become a steady part of the diet of Americans who live in the northern states. "These people haven't really fully learned how delicious, economical and nutritious rice is. They are learning gradually. Consumption goes up steadily. Last year beat all other years. It is really so delicious. I love a plate of hot steaming fluffy rice with just a pat of butter on it. But if you want something a little more elaborate, then try Arkansas Cumin Rice. It's spectacular," Prewitt urges. Arkansas Cumin Rice is made with a cup of raw rice browned in a large sauce pan with bacon drippings and a little chopped onion and bell peppers. When golden brown, turn it into a shallow casserole and add a pint of beef broth plus a ta blespoon of Worchestershire and about three quarter teaspoon of salt and the same of cumin seed. Cover casserole tightly. Bake for half an hour, until liquid is absorbed. Fluff lightly with a fork. This amount should serve six people.

It is now going to follow a more restrictive economic policy, instead of a more expansionary one. That is the clear message from President Nixon's statement on June 24. After a meeting with his chief economic advisers, the President said that he intends to reduce total government spending in the new fiscal year, beginning July 1st, by $5 GRACE BIBLE CHURCH Glidden, Iowa Arthur Van Pelt, Interim Pastor Sunday— 11:00 a.m. Worship Service.

Which does little except cause pain in the area of your pocketbook, Fines Levied by Magistrate AUDUBON — James D. Briggs of Carroll, has been fined $25 in magistrate court here on a contempt citation. He was cited for contempt after a check he wrote in payment of a fine was returned because of insufficient funds. Briggs was charged with driving with an expired driver's license in May. When he paid the fine the Carroll bank on which it was written returned the check to magistrate court here. Briggs was notified and the check deposited again but was returned a second time. He was arrested Tuesday in Carroll on a warrant issued by the district court magistrate here and was released Tuesday night after payment of all of the fines and costs. Two men have been charged here with driving while intoxicated. Richard Hill of Omaha, was arrested near Audubon and released the next day after posting $350 cash bond. John Dennis, Brayton, was released on his own recognizance. An Audubon man was fined $130 on two traffic charges after he was found guilty following a trial before the magistrate. Randy Williams was fined $80 for speeding and $50 for failture to obey a police signal. He was clocked by radar by city police who then were unable to stop Williams' Corvette. Police said Williams' car reached 95 miles an hour during the chase. Two felony charges have been dismissed. A charge of injury to roads filed several weeks ago against Elmer G. Carlson of Audubon, was dismissed at the request of county officials. Carlson had been accused of damaging a bridge on a road near Audubon, but County Attorney Robert Nelson said the cost of repairs had been paid. A larceny charge against Michael B. Christensen of Audubon, was dimissed after a preliminary hearing before Magistrate Joe Sklenar. Christensen was charged in connection with the alleged attempted theft of a water tank from the Brayton Produce Co. recently. Dennis Lee Nelson of Elk Horn, was charged with operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent and has been released on $500 bond. The charge grew out of an incident involving a farm tractor owned by Gary Schmidt of Audubon. billion to $300 billion — and thereby to cut the prospective budget deficit approximately in half. Whether this $5 billion cut can in fact be carried through is not as important as the intent of the policy. In January, when this budget was first sent to Congress and when the oil shortage carried the threat of a serious increase in unemployment, Mr. Nixon's lieutenants said openly that the President would "bust the budget" FUNNY BUS/NESS The ITU: a Study in Democracy By NKA-London Kconomist News Service American unions are generally rather democratic. Elections for local officials are fought harder and more regularly than in Britain. Turnouts average 55 per cent and incumbent officials are often defeated. Most wage deals or strike decisions are usually submitted to union members for ratification, and the law requires that national union leaders be regularly elected either by secret ballot or by convention vote. Yet many unions are run in an autocratic way and most union presidents exercise more power than their British equivalents. Easily the most democratic union in the United States, and indeed in the world, is the International Typographical Union, the oldest in the country. It is now facing extinction at the hands of automated printing processes, but it still has at least a decade of life ahead. The unique feature of the union's democracy is that every election within it is contested by candidates from two rival parties: the Progressives and the Independents. The party out of power functions as an opposition. Elections are held every two years. The Progressives have been in power for the last 25 years nationally, although the Independents rule several local areas. Two months ago, the Progressive slate narrowly won control of the national executive yet again. There is no ideological division between the parties and the issues are usually .about administration, but the system keeps the men in power on their toes. All party candidates are chosen in primary elections and every policy decision, either local or national, has to be put to a referendum. Referenda are held on the third Wednesday of a month, and cover everything from strike decisions to officers' expenses. After the rise in oil prices, union members were asked if car expenses for IS BEIN6 FILMED; &il HIDDEN TV J CAMERAS .'r (meaning ' 'increase spending") if necessary to avoid any real recession. Now he is going to try to cut spending instead, even although American production in the first half of 1974 has been lower than in the previous half-year, and although private economic forecasts for the second half of 1974 are now looking for only a very weak upturn. Motions by congressional Democrats to reduce taxes as a means of stimulus for the economy have been scornfully opposed. Apart from a new program By Roger Bollen FANTASTIC!

This one is set in Florida and Hawaii and concerns a young lady named Pidge Brindle, who has interrupted her honeymoon at the latter location, convinced either that her new husband is trying to kill her or that she is losing her mind.

The tiara, with turquoise replacing the emeralds, is now a part of the gem collection at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. to bolster housing construction, decisions on government spending are nearly all on the side of restraint. The bark of the Federal Reserve Board's supposedly restrictive monetary policy may be worse than its bite. The money supply does keep expanding. But the Feds' intent is clear, and is in the same restrictive direction. As the stock market, now almost an object of pity, awaits the small bone of a drop in present skyhigh interest rates, the stony-faced central bank is mainly IN LEADER COURSE Cadet Randall J.

The United States government, in short, now takes the danger of double-digit inflation far more seriously than the fear of some further decline in production or rise in unemployment. Most politicians believe that public opinion supports this policy, despite the President's other troubles. Fears of some sort of slump in the rest of the industrial world are recognized in Washington to be reasonable, but their only effect so far has been a modest reduction in most economists' forecasts of American exports. The Administration regards inflation as the overriding problem and intends to treat it with the old time religion of fiscal and monetary restraint. Its apologists say the restraint is not really severe — not as severe as in France or Japan or as is proposed in Italy. They just expect very slow .growth in America during the rest of the year.

The majority voted "no." The union has tough rules about its own finances: They are audited monthly, and every three months an independent accountant submits a financial report to the members. Over 80 per cent of the members normally vote in referenda, which are conducted by secret ballot. The result is that the union is run in accordance with the wishes of the members, who feel involved and take extra interest in union affairs. It is also one of the few unions in the United States that has never been accused of corruption. lei The Economist of London THEY REALLY "CONVERF--WITH OUR NEW "HIGH-OCTANE" PROTENA CHECKERS!
