Price Freeze Problems Mount By MATH1S CHAZANOV United Press International Farmer Garret van de Steeg of Auburn, Wash., placed seven of his Holstein cattle on the auction block Tuesday because he can't afford to feed them. Related Story; Page 20 Hawaii agriculture director Fred Erskine warned there could soon be shortages in fresh produce and meats in Hawaii's supermarkets. In Canton, Ohio, officials at the Superior Meat Packing Plant said it would stop its, production of fresh pork Friday and lay off 100 of its 1,840 employes because of "unprofitable pork production as a result of the recently instituted 60-day price freeze." The problem for Van de Steeg and other farmers is that the cost of raw agricultural prod­ ucts, such as cattle feed, is going up while the price to processors, wholesalers and consumers of milk and ether foods is fixed under the 60-day price freeze that expires in mid-August. James W. McLane, deputy director of the Cost of Living Council, said consumers could expect only a limited slowdown in the rate at which the cost of food rises under Phase IV. "It is clear that food prices are going to go up and they will go up at a moderate rate," he said. In Kansas, a state spokesman said a wet spring and the expectation of high prices should result in a record crop of 381 million bushels. The previous record, set last year, was 315 million bushels. Fuel and boxcar slortages have "certainly been a prob­ lem," he said, but "they haven't kept farmers from harvesting." Matt Nash, a spokesman for the Northwest Dairymen's As* sociation, which represents dairymen in Washington, Idaho and Oregon, said the problems "are almost unparallelled in their seriousness." Farmers with years of experience are going out of business. Herds for sale are at record levels." Cornelius P. Courtney, executive director of the 800-member Connecticut Food Stores As* sociation, said "extremely serious shortages" of some fresh fruits, baked goods, eggs and poultry products can be expect* ed within days because food processors are hot willing to pay prices being asked at the grower level.

He organized the gift on behalf of the legion and the homecom-' show in 1954 and has worked on it ever since. ing association. WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agriculture Department Tuesday issued a crop report pointing to a potential record grain and soybean harvest and, according to department officials, toward easing inflationary pressure on food prices as of this fall. The estimate for soybean acreage for harvest this year in . Illinois, the leading producer of the sought - after commodity, was 9,040,000 acres, up nearly 20 per cent from the 1972 figures of 7,475,000 acres. /? In corn, in which Illinois ranks second only to Iowa, acreage for 1973 for harvest was estimated at 9,780,000, up 650,000 .acres from the 9,130,000 for 1972. July 1 winter wheat estimate was 39,680,000 bushels, down from the 42,300,000 estimated in June, and down sharply from the 54,000,000 bushels produced in 1972 Don Paarlberg, the department's chief economist, told a news conference Mowing the report that meat prices probably will rise after current ceilings are lifted because of an earlier boom in livestock feed cost.. But he said the bumper corn, soybean and wheat crops forecast Tuesday should help by both reducing feed prices and persuading farmers to reverse recent trends toward slowing meat, poultry and egg production. The report estimated farmers will harvest 62.5 million acres of corn, up 9 per cent from last year and 55.7 million acres of soybeans, up 22 per cent. No formal production estimates were issued but the report said that with average yield the corn crop could reach a record of 5.879 billion bushels—up 6 per cent from last year while the soybean harvest might be up a record 24 per cent or 1.588 billion bushels. The tentative "projection" is fractionally below the government goal of 6 billion bushels while the soybean "projection" is slightly above the administration goal of 1.5 billion. Paarlberg cautioned that the growing season still lies ahead, and "this crop could get much better or it could get worse." But he said Tuesday's optimistic report shows that in spite of handicaps- like flood and fuel shortages, "it's out there and growing." He said that if the crops live up to projections, consumers can expect to see a pick-up in broiler chicken production in August and September and an upturn in egg production by September and October. He said beef supplies this fall could in­ crease over levels now In sight, but it might be well into 1974 before any substantial gain in pork appears. Paarlberg said he could not foresee "any prospects of lower food prices to any appreciable extent for the rest of 1973." But, he said the "favorable" crop report should speed an administration decision to move out of the price freeze and into a more flexible economic control program. Assistant Agriculture Secretary Carroll G. Brunthaver told the news conference that no decision has been made yet on whether current export controls on soybeans and other high- protein livestock feeds can be scrapped in the fall, or whether controls on those crops—plus export limits on grains like corn and wheat—would be needed for the marketing season be* ginning next fall. Fairview Show Organizer Recognized Good Soviet-American Relations Key FAIRVIEW - Charles Harn, who has worked on the Fairview Junior Livestock Show for 20 years, was honored Saturday at the Fairview Homecoming and Junior Livestock Show. Harn has done more work organizing and developing the livestock show than any other July 16-20 person, said Harold Omer, past American Legion commander who introduced Harn.

Boy Is Calm During Holdup CHICAGO (UPI) - An attorney for one of two Chicago youths who fled the country after being indicted for planning to poison the city's water supply says his client wants to come home. Attorney Rick Halprin said RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (UPI) — Twenty customers and employes of a bank stood paralyzed Tuesday as a bandit held a pistol to the neck of a three-year-old boy while two others gathered $15,000 from cashiers' windows.

William Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said today that good Soviet-American relations are too important to be permitted to be undermined by the issue of emigration of Russian Jews. "Learning to live together in peace is the most important issue for the Soviet Union and the United States, too important to be compromised by meddling —neven idealistic meddling —in each others' affairs," Fulbright said in a prepared speech to the American Bankers Association. Fulbright was referring to an amendment proposed by Sen Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., to forbid extension of normal U.S. trading terms to the Soviet Union unless Kremlin leaders allowed Jews or others to leave Russia freely if they wished. Jackson has the support of 77 senators and 200 representatives for his amendment to the administration trade bill. If adopted, the Jackson amendment would scuttle the provision of the Soviet-American trade agreement of October, 1972, which calls on the United States to extend "most favored nation treatment" to the Soviet Union. This extends normal trading terms to a nation so designated.- Chicago Man Wants to Come Home Tuesday he received a long letter from Steven Pera, 19, who said he would return to the United States as soon as he gets permission from Cuban authorities.

Both were students at Chicago City College. Authorities charged they were breeding microbes in laboratories at the college and at a hospital where one of them.worked. Halprin said Pera and Schwander were being held in a Cuban prison, charged with counter - revolutionary activities. ing. READ THE WANT ADS! The Farmers & Mechanics ANNOUNCES...
