By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP )-Uncle Sam is financially embarrassed in his dealings with the rest of the world because for several years he's been sending more dollars abroad than he has been getting back. And yet his exports of goods and services exceed his imports by around & billion a year. Some of the cause of the deficit lies in government policies. But not all of it. How then do all these billions of dollars flow out of the country? First there are commercial imports, now costing around $16.8 billion a year, four per cent higher than a year ago. Their total cost in dollars may rise still more as the country becomes more prosperous. Some imports are raw materials that U.S. industries will be chewing up. Some goods come in because they are cheaper than American can produce—and in a number of cases curbs have been put on this inflow. Others are quality or high style or novelty goods that Americans buy when they are flush. Second, money flows out when American banks make loans to foreigners. The United States has been the fattest source for such capital. And interest rates here usually are lower than those charged by foreign banks. Third, Americans have been buying foreign stocks and bonds. The government says that sales here of new long-term foreign securities are now running at an annual rate of $1.7 billion. Also, corporations or well- heeled individuals with idle cash have been sending dollars to Europe for short-term securities paying higher interest than obtainable here. This outflow is called hot money. And whenever there's much talk about the dollar being under pressure because of the balance of payments deficit, some speculators send their dollars abroad to buy gold or securities or for deposit in banks. Fourth, American corporations have been spending dollars abroad to build factories and distribution centers. Motivations are cheaper production costs, or crawling under tariff walls other nations build against American- made goods, or getting close to fast growing consumer markets abroad. But these invested billions abroad aren't all on the deficit side of the balance of payments. A lot of dollars flow back as earnings from these plants. A fifth source of the outflow of dollars lies in the large amounts of American securities, real es* tate, factories and resources owned by foreigners. Interest, dividends and profits on these hold* tags speed dollars overseas. A sixth source of U.S. dollars for foreigners is the American tourist. In 1962. the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louts points out, Americans spent $1.9 billion in foreign countries, plus $563 million on foreign carriers. The total this year is expected to be higher, This $2.5 billion outflow last year was only partly offset by the $1 billion foreign visitors spent here, including what they paid U.S. carriers for transportation. Finally, the U.S. government spends billions of dollars on military programs abroad and other billions on grants and loans to other countries. A sizable part of this is reclaimed. President Kennedy says up to 80 per cent of foreign aid is actually spent here, boosting our exports by that much. Mr. K Blames Bad Weather In Crop Loss MOSCOW (UPI) - Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, admitting that bad weather has put Soviet agricultural production in a "rather difficult position," today continued his trouble - shooting tour of the state-run farms. No; figures have been released on the size of this year's wheat harvest, but the Soviet purchase of 7 million tons of wheat from Canada indicates it will be at least that much short of the 147 million tons harvested last year (Congressional sources in Washington said the Soviets are nterested in buying an additional I million tons of American wheat.)

Agency Issues Report on j Mid-September Farm Prices Urged Utmost Efforts Khrushchev, who has given a great deal of advice and countess directives to the farmers and officials on the collective and state farms, urged them again Monday to make the "utmost efforts" to make up for the poor harvest. The main way to do this, he said, was for Russia to manufacture and the farmers to use as much chemical fertilizer as the United States does. Soviet produc tion must reach 35 million tons a year by 1965, he said, about the same as U. S. production now, and 100 million tons by 1970, Khrushchev, whose remarks to peasants in the Ukrainian town of Novaya Kahkovka were published in Monday's Izvestia, said irrigation also had high priority. He called for more irrigation systems and the training of specialists in the field. In Bad Position "This year weather conditions were unfavorable and we found ourselves in a rather difficult position, and must draw the necessary conclusions," Khrushchev said. He called for measures "to safeguard us against any eventualities." As one of these measures, he urged an increase of grain production in the Hungary Steppes, where there are large- scale irrigation projects. By raising more grain in this area of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, he said, the nation would have a kind of insurance, a "guaranteed fund" in grain.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agriculture Depart merit's monthly farm price report shows prices in terms of parity for mid-September were down five per cent from one year ago. The report showed the average prices for crops and livestock down to 77 per cent of parity. In mid* September, 1962, farm products were selling for an average of 81 per cent of parity. The report showed a squeeze on profits for cattle and hog producers. Prices for hogs and cattle dipped between mid-August and mid-September while the price of corn, the chief livestock feed, went up. The index for livestock feed prices was the highest for any September since 1956. Cite National Average Corn was selling in mid-September for a national average of $1.21 a bushel. This price was up two cents from mid-August, and it was 14 cents above the price in mid-September of 1962. Agriculture Department spokesmen pointed out, however, that corn prices normally begin to decline after September as the harvest season comes on. Another development in the corn market situation came last week when the Agriculture Department resumed sales of government-owned corn for domestic use from terminal markets. A spokesman, reporting on this action today, said the government had been selling corn at terminal markets only for export since mid-summer. The price report Monday showed hog prices in mid-September averaging $15.40 a hundredweight, down $1.20 from mid-August. Beef cattle prices averaged $20.10 a hundredweight in mid- September, down 30 cents from mid-August. Wheat prices, on the other hand, were pushed up by reaction to recent big Russian import orders for wheat. In mid-September, the average wheat price was up to $1.84 a bushel, a seven-cent gain over one month earlier.

CAIESIURO House Ready To Increase Military Pay WASHINGTON (UPI) - The House was set today to give final congressional approval to a pay increase for almost 2 million of the nation's servicemen. The price tag would be $1.2 billion. The Senate already has approved the compromise measure which calls for raises for all those in the military except 742,000 draftees and enlisted men still serving their two-year military obligation. The average increase would be a little more than 14 per cent. The effective date would be today. A total of 411,000 retired military personnel also would benefit. They would receive increases ranging from a 5 per cent cost- of-living boost to recomputation of their retirement pay under new scales. The increases vary, depending on the retirement year. The bill also provides combat pay of $55 a month to U. S. servicemen under fire in Viet Nam and any other cold war area where fighting may erupt.
