Other Nations Experience Financial Worries Like US By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-You hear a lot today about red-ink bookkeeping in U.S. accounts with the rest of the world. And you ask why just the United States? Why aren't other nations also having deficit problems affecting their currency and their credit standings? The answer is: Some nations do have balance of payments troubles, and have them bad; Other nations (like Britain) have them off and on; and most of the rest suffered after World War II even worse than the United States is today but have pulled from deficit to surplus as the United States slipped. Underdeveloped countries usually are dependent on loans and grants from others to balance their payments with the rest of the world. This is especially true of those with big ambitions — the ones who want to grow industrially at jet speed. Aiding them has helped push the United States further into the red. Industrial countries like Britain have periodic payment problems when their exports slump or their consumer taste for imports gets too rich. France, West Germany and other European countries went through rough years after the FOR 1964 WWi'.W.V.W.W.V Upper: The Coupe de Ville; lower: The Fleetwood Sixty Special Sedan MORE TEMPTING THAN EVER!

West Germany built up to her present affluence by auster* ity. France belatedly cured its inflationary sprees that caused the franc to be devalued more than once when the rest of the world lost confidence in it. Now a new inflation is starting and Prance is taking sharp corrective measures. Canada has a commercial trade deficit of $1.4 billion with the United States, largely offset by $L2 billion a year in investments by Americans. It now is proposing to curb U.S. imports while protesting U.S. efforts to stem the investment outflow. The unique thing about the U.S. deficit of payments today is that it isn't in any of the classic forms. Usually deficits arise from imports topping exports (as in postwar Europe while it was importing all it could to build up its industrial facilities for domestic use and finally for the ex ports that make it prosperous). But in the United States exports go right along topping imports. Today the Yankee dollar, for all its problems, isn't shunned. It doesn't buy as much in goods and services as it once did. But most foreigners are willing to hold onto most of the dollars they get-up to a point. And it's that point American and other financial authorities worry about. If the ILS. balance of payments stays out of kilter too long and others get the idea the dollar might become shaky, most countries would switch from dollar reserves to demanding gold.

Shuman, is the fact that American consumers would have to pay more for American wheat than would the U.S.S.R. Shuman, of Sullivan, UK, to president of the American Farm Bureau and a frequent foe of Kennedy administration farm policies. In a talk at a Rotary Club farmer-businessman dinner Tuesday, Shuman commented on reports that Russia is dickering for millions of dollars of U.S. wheat. Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman indicated Tuesday in Harrisburg, Pa.-, that Russia is prepared to buy 200 million bushels of wheat. Cites 'Basic Issue' "The basic issue," said Freeman, "is whether we can sell at the world price. The world price is currently about $1.55. In the international sale of American wheat, the U.S. government pays a subsidy to bring the price up to the domestic price of about $1.90 a bushel. Shuman told his audience that indications are, "Russian wheat sales merely await approval by the President, ignoring for the most part a congressional policy statement of 1961 that subsidized sales of farm commodities shall not be made to unfriendly nations." The agriculture secretary, however, had said the 1961 statement "is not a legal mandate." Points to Protest Shuman, in saying that American consumers would have to pay more for wheat than Russia, cited what he called "the storm of protest that arose several years ago over proposed subsidized sales of U.S. butter to Communist nations." Shuman also observed that some have suggested any sale should be made out of storage bins of surplus wheat that is burdensome to taxpayers. "In other words," said Shuman, "the taxpayer is being asked to pay twice for the administration's stubborn adherence to a high price support policy that has encouraged excess production and priced us out of the free world market."
