Devalued Dollar Increases Japanese Food Purchases Mesburg Reaiste^Moil, Galesburg, III, Monday, June 25, 1973 13 By BEUNAUD BRENNETt UPI Fanm Editor WASHINGTON (UPI) Japan's aggressive food and farm product buyitfs will push their imports from the U.S. to a record $2 billion or more in the fiscal year ending June 30, nearly 75 iper oent above the level of a year earlier, lihe Agriculture 'Department says. On the Farm Front Figures for calendar year 1973 may be even more impressive, added Bruce L. Grcenshields, a department economist. Grccn- shiefds said In an. article published today that Japanese buyers may conibinuc to take advantage of the ifaot that devaluation of the dollar allows them to buy more soybeans, corn and other crops for their yen. Greenshields' article made no reference to the possibility of U.S. fiction to limit exports of Life insurance for every member of the iamlly — lhe' eaileai and cheapest way to pay Inevitable ilnal ixpenaeg.

Life and Health Insurance some of the livestock feed commodities which rank at the top of some of the Jiaipanese Import list, including corn and soybeans. President Nixon has asked for mow standby authority to limit shipments of these crops, and has said he would use the authority if it appears necessary to protect U.S. consumers from runaway meat, poultry and milk prices. Ths Agriculture Department economist said several factors in addition to devaluations of the dollar have played H major role in the boom in sales to Japan which has moved faster than most American experts expected. Early this year, Agriculture Department officials noted that exports to Japan had reached nearly $1.2 billion in the 1971-72 fiscal year iandi. predicted that a $2 billion plateau would be approached in two or three years. That level is in sight for 1972-73, Greenshields said, partly because the Japanese have been trying to stockpile farm products do protect themselves against worldwide shortages, and because Japanese consumer demand is growing rapidly as thie country continues to pull out of its "mini recession" of 1971. Currency value changes, however, have been a prime factor in the sharp gain in export Tormenting Rectal Itch Of Hemorrhoidal Tissues Promptly Relieved In many cases Preparation H gives prompt, temporary relief from such pain and itching and actually helps shrink swelling of hemorrhoidal tissues caused by inflammation, Testa by doctors on hun- dreds.of patients showed this to be true in many cases.

Gf@eti6hield* pointed out that In calendar 1073, the amount of yen which bought $1.4 Milton worth of U.S. farm products in 1972 will buy stocks valued at $1.7 billion. Some of this gain is offset by higher dollar prices, but there has been a gain in the physical volume of shipments, the experts said. Grcenshields said soybeans and soybean products led the list of U.S. farm exports to Japan in calendar 1972 with shipments valued a.t $380 million. They were followed by corn, wheat, grain sorghum, cotton, cattle hides, tobacco and pork. Rapidly rising pork shipments to Jajpan have troubled some consumer-oriented critics who fear the sales are helping to keep domestic pork supplies tight. The Agriculture Department economist said the outlook (or U.S. farm product sales to Japan, which have grown steadily over the past decade, is "not quite so optimistic" afiter 1973. Graenshields said this is partly because of current heavy stockpiling in Japan which may reduce future orders and partly because Japan continues to maintain import barriers on some foods including fruits and vegetables.
