Weather Can By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) - Weather still can affect the course of bud* ness and public awl individual fortunes despite all the man-made economic and political systems. It can set the price of many things from food to clothing to shelter—even the price of gold. Weather can weaken govern* ments or parties along &th specific corporations or enterprises. It can change long-held government policies, although its effects may show up more quickly on commodity markets and some* times stock exchanges. Any merchant can tell you how fair days or foul can affect his sales on any one day—or how temperature and precipitation variations can make or break any one season for him. The Communist nations have been taking their licks from the weather to the accompaniment of dramatic headlines—wheat shortages in Russia, hurricane damage in Cuba. But weather also has been setting economic courses in non-Communist countries. Many of the patterns are pleasant this year. Some are not. Coffee merchants are saying prices may rise this winter. The reason: Brazil's crop has been badly hit by drought and frost, and also by forest fires blames on the drought. The price of sugar may be tied to the skirts of Hurricane Flora, even if the United States no longer gets any of its sugar from Cuba. The reason: Russia has been either consuming or acting as middleman for Cuba's sugar crop. Flora is reported to have damaged it heavily, adding to the already admitted damage caused by the shortcomings of the Communist regime there. The world sugar market will be affected by the loss of the Cuban crop, and with world sugar prices already high, and fluctuating, the price in the United States may be affected. Weather, however, has. been kind to the U.S. sugar beet industry. A bumper crop here will temper the effects of Flora's rampage. The failure of the Russian wheat crop is chalked up to bad weather, with an assist from Communist collective inefficiencies. Russia's shortage has had widespread reactions. Canada has sold Russia 239 million bushels and Australia has sold 58.5 million bushels. The sale particularly helps Canada just now because perfect weather has given ( Saskatchewan a near record wheat crop this year to overflow the storage facilities. Russia's wheat dearth expanded further into international finances. To pay for its grain purchases Russia has been selling gold on the free market in Europe, an estimated 300 tons, of $280 million worth in September alone. This is more than its average annual sales volume. The offering has forced the price on the London market below $35.07 an ounce. The official U.S. Treasury price, plus handling charges, is $35.08. All this takes pressure off the U.S. gold reserves—thanks to the bad wheat weather in Russia. It also may be giving Russia still another headache. Gold producers estimate that Soviet mining is relatively expensive, that it actually costs Russia $70 an ounce to produce the metal it's selling. That spell of bad weather may be crippling the Communist economy in more ways than one. Seaton Scouts Elect Officers SEATON — The Cub Scouts Troop 441 met at the Center Presbyterian Church Oct.
