Lively Handful • Herschel Elliott who farm south of Woodhull, s has a struggle as he poses triplet calves for the camera. A Woodhull veterinarian told Elliott that the incidence of triplet births in cattle is one in 10,000. The three heifers Were born to a 5- year-old Angus cow that had had calves several times before. Elliott said the calves are advanced for their age. They were born June 19. He said he will keep the calves, at least for a while, since his family is enjoying them and they are such an oddity. Drought Concerns Chinese Leader By CHARLES R. SMITH UPI Senior Editor HONG KONG (UPI) -A few weeks ago, Premier Chou En- lai slipped out of Peking and attended a meeting 200 miles to the south concerning China's problems with drought. The meeting in. Shihchia- chuang was not widely publicized, and Chou's presence there was never announced. But diplomatic sources based in Peking said he was there. They also said he apparently spoke "with some gravity" about the serious situation on the farm front in the light of threatened new "natural disasters" this year. Chou's presence underscored the fact that China's agriculture, which was seriously affected by drought last year, still is in trouble. Pinch Will Be Felt There is no threat of famine. Even if there were a poor grain harvest this year, nobody in China is likely to go hungry. The pinch will be felt in other ways. Since China depends so much on agricultural production for capital accumulation, another poor crop year could mean a slowdown, if not a significant cutback, in capital construction plans. Then, too, the Chinese will have to dip deeper into their foreign exchange holdings to purchase more grain from abroad. Last year, large areas of north China experienced what some official Chinese reports called the worst drought of this century. The grain harvest was down from 1971's claimed record yield of 246 million tons. Vice Premier Li Hsien-nien said the drop was a "mere two million tons." Analysts outside China put the decline at four million tons or more. Two Main Purposes If there is another year without an increase in production, the impact could be great. The implications of a second successive poor crop year I become much more apparent when you consider that China will have acquired at least another 30 million more mouths to feed since 1971—and without an increase in grain production. The Chinese have been purchasing grain abroad consistently for more than a dozen years. This has served two main purposes. The first was to meet shortages at home or build up reserves. The second was to enable China to sell higher-priced rice abroad to earn foreign exchange and use the cheaper wheat as a supplement or substitute at home. This year the Chinese already have hedged against the possibility of another poor grain harvest. In March and April they apparently purchased, through third parties, an additional two million tons of wheat and a million tons of corn from the United States. Agricultural analysts here said the purchase also may have been a hedge against prices, which have risen sharply since the purchase. But the unavoidable fact is that the country still is threatened by drought and flood in many important grain-producing areas. A hedge against this. is ! wise in view of the worldwide grain shortage. World War II Pilots Body Is Buried After 30 Years SOUTH HOLLAND, 111. (UPI) —U.S. Army Air Force S. Sgt. Leonard J. Wozniak was to be buried with full military honors today, just one day short of 30 years after he was reported missing in a c t i o n in New Guinea during World War II. A Chicago native, Wozniak was sent to New Guinea as a flight engineer during World War II. He was 20 years old when, on July 10, 1943, he was listed as missing in action. An oil company employe found Wozniak's body in the wreckage of his plane 12 miles from a New Guinea village in July of 1972. The body was returned to Chicago's suburban Calumet City Friday following positive identification and an autopsy conducted in Japan, members of the Wozniak family said. "The Air Force declared him dead in December, 1945," said his sister, Mrs. Dorothy Karp of Morris. If "Mother (Mrs. Frances Wozniak of Dolton) has been praying for his return for 30 years," Mrs. Karp said. Mrs. Karp said her brother had won a number of citations and medals during his military service. Services were to be held at St. Jude the Apostle Church in this Chicago suburb followed by burial in Holy Cross Cemetery in Calumet City. Accident Fatal MATTOON, 111.
