\ 22 Gotesburg Register-Mail, Golesburg, III. Tuesday, Oct. 8, 1963 Wheat Sales No Drain on U.S. Supply WASHINGTON (AP) - The possible sale of 100 to 125 million tons of wheat to the grain-short Soviet bloc would barely make a dent in the bountiful American supply. At a time when wheat shortages are appearing in many countries, the U.S. government owns enough wheat to feed Americans more than two years. This is in addition to this year's crop which also is sufficient to meet domestic food needs for an additional two years. Although this feeding capability is based on the assumption that no wheat would be exported, there is no need to restrict exports. Present American supplies are ample to meet anticipated domestic and export demands for at least 18 months, probably 20 months. In the meantime, another crop—next year's—will be grown and harvested. The plentiful American supply situation is in sharp contrast to that of the Soviet Union and some of its satellites. Because of poor crops and less skill in production than possessed by American farm ers, the Soviets have found it necessary to turn to Canada, Australia and Western Europe—and now possibly the United States— for supplementary wheat. Saturday, diplomatic sources reported Hungary has told the United States it is ready to buy 800,000 tons — about 30 million bushels—of American grain. Other informants said Cargill, Inc., of Minneapolis, one of the big American grain processors and shippers, has already requested an export license from the Commerce Department. It was also reported that the Czech and Bulgarian embassies in Washington have expressed interest in buying about $60 million of American grain. : Last Friday the State Department said there have been approaches from the governments of the three Communist countries for the purchase of American wheat. The government owns what is popularly referred to as a big wheat surplus—supplies produced in past years and turned over to the Agriculture Department under farm price supports. This quantity was 1,026,000,000 bushels as of Aug. 31. Farm officials object to the tagging of its wheat as surplus grain. They say it should more accurately be described as a reserve and surplus supply. They say it is in the public interest to maintain a reserve of at least 400 million bushels to protect against crop failure or other national emergencies. The government's stocks have been supplemented by this year's crop of 1,134,000,000 bushels. The bulk of this grain is owned by producers, grain merchants and warehousemen. Some already has been consumed and some exported. Americans consume about 500 million bushels a year and use about 155 million annually for livestock feed and seed. They have been exporting more than 600 million bushels annually in recent years. As prospects appeal' now, this year's crop will not be adequate to meet domestic and export requirements. Before the Soviets appeared as possible buyers, it was calculated that at least 150 million bushels would have to be taken from the government slocks before the 1964 crop starts moving to harvest next spring.

Memories Are Giveaway in Age Guessing By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-It Is hard to tell the age of men and worn en today. There is a conspiracy to stay young. Gray hair is tinted another color, cosmetics give a youthful complexion, diets keep figures trim, and—for those who can afford it—plastic surgeons remove tattletale wrinkles. But now matter how skillfully you camouflage your exterior, you have a secret betrayer within. That is your memory. And it will quickly give away your real age anytime you succumb to the temptation of reminiscing out loud. Certainly you're no longer a spring chicken if you can remember when — Casey Stengel was a madcap outfielder for the New York Giants. Red Grange kept in shape for football by delivering ice in the summer. There were two things you could be sure of: (1) Nobody would ever climb Mt. Everest, and (2) no man would ever run a 4-minute mile. Girls wore dresses so short you could see their rolled stockings on a breezy day. A pet dog ate the scraps from the family table, and didn't require a special menu of its own Most workmen wore white shirts only on Saturday nights and Sundays. Young ladies used to sit in the backyard with a towel wrapped CARNIVAL By Dick Turner "J hadda pay for four cavities! Two in the kid's teeth and two in the dentist's finger!" around their necks and let the hot sun dry their long hair. Father always wore earmuffs to work on a cold day. When anyone was sick in the house, neighbor ladies always baked fresh bread and sent it over. A lad's knowledge that his grandpa was old and might die at any time was compensated for by the hope that he might get the old man's watch. Children studied reading, writing and arithmetic in school — instead of social adjustment and group adaptability. It was the height of romantic ecstasy to let your foot accidentally touch your girl's foot as you both pumped the player piano in the living room. Any town that didn't have at least two pool halls was really only a village. Half the young sports in America were growing sideburns and slicking down their hair so they'd look more like Rudolph Valentino Remember? If you do, don't ad mit it—or everyone under 40 will either put you down as a con temporary of Methuselah, or think you're still in mourning for William B. McKinley.
