SLUSSER UPI Business Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - The stock market followed the course of the dollar on the New York Stock Exchange this week, finishing with prices higher but investors uncertain Week on Wall Street ;;' Trading picked up on the rise but dwindled Friday with the return to the downside. The dollar advanced on for eign currency markets for the first three days and the market rallied, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average more than 38 points higher. But the dollar declined in price on foreign markets Thursday and searched for direction Friday. Consequently, the market became uneasy and generally moved lower. The Dow lost 15.95 on Friday. Further adding to concern late in the week was President Nixon's hospitalization for pneumonia. He is expected to be in the hospital about a week. Program Soon? There had been strong indications the President would remove the price freeze and announce provisions of his promised Phase IV economic program. Many administration officials had said they expected the announcement to come soon. The Dow climbed almost 20 points Wednesday as specula tion grew over the pending an nouncement. Treasury Secretary George Shultz said Friday he did not know how Nixon's illness would affect the Phase IV announcement. He did say he believed it might be possible to end controls by the end of the year, although he would not flatly say this would be done. With these developments, the Dow gained 15.88 to 885.99 for the week. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index was up 2.81 to 104.09. The' NYSE common stock index gained 1.76 to 55.12. Advance stopped declines, 1,412 to 373, among 1,957 issues crossing the tape.

Glamors climbed. Walt Disney rose 9Ys, ARA Services 8%, Schlumberger 7% and Xerox 6Y*. Illinois Harvest Put at 22.1 Million Acres SPRINGFIELD - Illinois farmers expect to harvest 22.1 million acres of field crops in 1973,11 per cent more than was harvested last year, according to the Illinois Corp and Livestock Reporting Service. Large acreage increases in soybeans, corn and wheat more than offset decreases in oats, sorghums and hay acre ages. THE CONDITION of most crops on July 1 was generally reported as good, but heavy rains and poor planting conditions in some areas reduced stand and crop conditions. Development of most field crops was generally a little behind normal. Soil moisture as of July 6 was reported as 31 per cent surplus, 63 per cent adequate and six per cent short. Illinois farmers planted 10.1 million acres of corn for all purposes in 1973 and expect to harvest 9.8 million acres for grain — both seven per cent greater than 1972. For white corn, 49,000 acres are intended for harvest, compared with 39,000 acres in 1972. These acres are includ* ed in the total corn acres for grain. PLANTING of the 1973 corn crop progressed slowly up to mid-May because of frequent and abundant rainfall Which caused muddy fields. Planting generally made rapid progress during most of the last half of May and early June, although rains caused occasional delays, particularly in the extreme south. With the slow planting this year, plant growth on July 1 was behind 1972. Illinois farmers planted 9.1 million acres of soybeans for all purposes in 1973, up 21 per cent from last year. They ex pect to harvest 9.04 million acres for beans '** also 21 per cent more than in 1972. By July 1, planting was nearly complete in most northern areas and about 90 per cent statewide. Planting was about 80 per cent complete in the south where frequent rains delayed planting. CROP PROGRESS was generally about two weeks behind normal and last year. Stands were somewhat spotty and crop conditions reported mostly fair to good. Wheat production is forecast at 39.7 million bushels, 27 per cent less than the 1972 production. This year's average yield is forecast at 31 bushels per acre, down sharply from the 45 bushels in 1972. Crop conditions and grain test weight are down from 1972 in many areas of Il linois. The lower yields more than offset the seven per cent increase in acreage for harvested yields — resulting in the lower expected production. Harvest was about 40 per cent complete by July 1, behind both last year and the average. Oat production in 1973 is forecast at 23.2 million bushels, down 16 per cent from last year. This year's yield is expected to average 58 bushels per acre, compared with 63 bushels in 1972 and 00 bushels in 1971. Oats harvested for grain are expected to total 400,000 acres, nine per cent less than in 1972. The 550,000 planted acres are dOwn sharply from the 1,250,000 acres planted in 1972, when much of the acreage was planted on government set - aside acres. Oat progress on July 1 was about the Shortage of Meat Results In Closing of 16 Plants CHICAGO (UPI) — The American Meat Institute reported Friday that 16 meat producing plants have closed and 20 others have curtailed production due to meat shortages. The institute said the closing and production curtailments have left more than 6,000 persons out of work. The institute reported closures or curtailments in meat plants in 16 states, with Iowa hardest hit with five plants employing 645 persons closed down. An additional 300 persons will be put out of work next week if Jones Dairy Farm of Fort Atkinson, Wis., abides by announced plans to close down Tuesday. Adding to the problem will be 1-day closures scheduled for Monday at Armour Food Co. plants in Mason City and Sioux City, Iowa; St. Paul and Worthington, Minn.; St. Joseph, Mo., and Huron S.D. Record Crop Could Reduce Grain Imports by Russians Commodity Exchange Board Proposes New 'Safeguards' WASHINGTON (UPI) —|lance of market activity for in- Plagued by repeated charges it has been lax in policing trading on the nation's miultibillion- dollar commodity markets, the Commodity Exchange Authority has announced a proposal aimed at erecting new safeguards against price manipulation and other abuses. CEA officials have proposed a new regulation aimed, in essence, at compelling more active self-policing efforts by com modity exchanges. Spokesmen said the new proposal was drafted because "some conitraot markets are maintaining a passive attitude (while) others are failing to diligently seek out violations." Specific Steps The proposed new regulation spells out specifically steps which markets must take in enforcement of their own rules and federal regulations. The seven-part proposal includes steps including "surveil INSIDE fc OUTSIDE SALE 151 ALIENS AVE. Sat. & Sun. Avon Collection, household items, clothing, drapes, girl's bicycle, nic-nacs, toys, misc.

' The proposal came on the heels of votes in both the House and Senate to increase the CEA budget in order to step up market policing by the federal agency itself. A report by the House Appropriations Committee had been critical of commodity markets as well, saying that they should be taking a more active part in guarding against trading abuses and market manipulations Announces Complaint Perhaps coincidentally, the CEA announced on June 25 it had filed an administrative complaint charging the Chicago Board of Trade with failing to enforce its own minimum fi nancial standing regulations in a case involving Rice Commodities, Inc.

GALESBURG REGISTER-MAIL DISPLAY ADV. — Phone 343-7181 WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agricultural Department announced Friday that Russia may harvest a record grain crop this year and Soviet grain imports may drop below ear lier estimates. But officials refused to say how far they think the import reduction may go. The department said that in light of reports of good weather and crop conditions, prospects as of July 1 indicate the 1973 Soviet grain harvest could total a record 195 million tons, up 16 per cent from last year's poor harvest. Not Precise But on import prospects, officials would not be precise. Our information is conflicting. It would not (be a service to give a specific figure," an official of the Foreign Agricultural Service said after release of the statement which predict- Consumers May Pay Cost Hikes Under Phase IV WAUKEGAN, 111. (UPI)-Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott predicts farmers and producers will be able to pass on costs to consumers in President Nixon's Phase IV economic program. Speaking at a Republican diner Friday, Scott said, "Phase IV will be more like Phase II than Phase HI. "There will be a period of strict mandatory control. There will be what we call a pass- .tiirough which will permit the farmer, the producer of raw imateraials and of food at the source an opportunity to pass on the cost to consumers." Scott said he did not believe the President's hospitalization would delay action on Phase IV. He said he believed the President's move would be dramatic, restore the economy land stabilize the dollar. SIU Students Emergency Aid To Cost $99,000 CARBONDALE, 111. (UPI) Doctors Hospital here will provide after - hours emergency treatment for Southern Illinois) University students for $99,000 under an agreement approved by the SIU Board of Trustees Friday. Under tne agreement, students could receive emergency treatment at Doctors Hospital, Carbondale's largest hospital, between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. on weekdays and during weekend's afternoon. ed that Soviet 1973-74 grain imports from all sources will be down "somewhat" from a previous FAS estimate of 15 million tons. Another expert, however, said privately he believed the decline would be "slight." Whatever tlhe final figure, it will be down sharply from Russia's grain import for the 197273 season. In that season, following the poor 1972 crop, Russia imported nearly 30 million tons of grain from all sources, including about 19 million tons from the United States. Orders to Date The Agriculture -Department earlier this week reported that Soviet orders for U.S. wheat and corn for 1973-74 delivery so far totaled 7.845 million tons. Officials confirmed again Friday that these shipments will come primarily from the U.S. 1973 crcps.
