Carryover of Feea brains To Decline ' WASHINGTON (AP) - The ; Agriculture Department predicted r today another decline in the car* ryover of food grains during the 1963-64 marketing year. tt estimated the total supply , of feed grains for the year which started Aug. 1 at 208 million tons, 7 million tons less than a year earlier and 23 million tons below the record supply of three years ago. The 1963 feed grain crop is estimated at about 147 million tons, 4 million tons larger than in 1962. The increased output is more than offset by a prospective reduction of 11 million tons in the carryover. Cite Larger Acreages The higher production estimated for this year is due to larger acreages of corn and grain sorghum. Consumption and export of food grains during 1962-63 was estimated at 155 million tons, slightly above 1961-62. The total is expected to increase a little in 196364 as livestock numbers continue their upward trend. While a further reduction in the carryover is thus indicated during 1963-64, it is expected to be less than in the previous two marketing years when stocks were reduced by about 12 tons a year. Gofesburg Register*Mail, Gofesburg, 1ft. Weo*., Aug. 21, 1963 25 WASHINGTON (AP) - The rugged spires of the minarets in California which had been classified as a primitive area, have been given a wilderness status. "This is an area of glacier-fed mountain lakes and fishing streams—a true wilderness deserving of preservation," said Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman, in announcing the reclassification. WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman will hold a news conference Wednesday to report on what's new in farming behind the Iron Curtain. Freeman returned last week from a month-long trip to Russia and other Iron Curtain countries during which b/e visited collective farms and conferred with agricultural officials. He already has given President Kennedy a preliminary report in which he said he was received with friendliness everywhere he went and that the people in the Soviet bloc were enthusiastic about this country's efforts to bring about a more peaceful world. WASHINGTON (AP) — Somewhat higher retail prices for meat are on the way, the Agriculture Department predicts. Prices during the third quarter —July through September—probably will average above the corresponding quarter of last year. But, the department expects, they still will average 2 to 3 per cent below the third quarter of 1962. Higher production of bee"f, veal, and lamb and mutton is looked for in this quarter, with less pork than in the second quarter. Average urban retail meat prices were above year-earlier prices from May 1962 through March 1963. Since April retail prices have averaged below the same months of 1962. The index of retail prices in June, the last month for which final figures are available, was 98.6 per cent of the 1957-59 averages and 1.6 per cent below June 1962.
