Big Drop Wholesale Prices Fall During July Goltsburo ftcQister-Moil, Golesbura, HI. Thuridoy, Aug, 2, 1973 3 WASHINGTON (UPI)Wholesale prices dropped in July by the biggest margin of aity month in 24 years, the Labor Department said today, indicating that lor the time being at least President Nixon's Phase IV economic plan was putting the brakes on inflation. Prices of industrial goods, farm products and a wide range of other non-retail products dropped 1.3 per cent last month. The sharp, surprising reversal in an upward climb of wholesale prices was the first since a small turnaround in October, 1972, and the largest for any month since February, 1949; | Prices of farm products, processed foods and feeds, dropped 4.1 per cent in July. In the past year, these prices have soared by nearly 27 per cent. Freeze Ends Tht freeze on prices imposed in June will come off most items in 10 days. It is scheduled to stay on beef however for an extra month—until Sept. 12— but there is growing pressure for this date to be moved up. Agriculture Seorttary Earl L. Butz, after hearing appeals and warnings from meat industry leaders Wednesday, switched from a previous firm stand against relaxing the Sept. 12 date and said he would "seriously consider" lifting the beef freeze before then. Shortages of beef are becoming severe in parts of the country, Bute said, because of a run on markets by housewives fearing a shortage, and because beef suppliers are holding back meat animals until the freeze ends. Some Variation While the over-all wholesale index—and all farm products- showed a dramatic drop in July, other wholesale prices registered only modest increases: consumer foods up 0.3 per cent and consumer finished goods up 0 .2 per cent. Since the behavior of whole* sale prices tends to foreshadow retail price movements, -the July report suggested a possible slowdown in the rise in the cost of living by early fall. This is what administration leaders have been hoping for. This means that the unusual July drop likely will be followed by wholesale price increases in the months ahead, but perhaps not at the rapid pace registered since January. Taking seasonal factors into account, wholesale prices in July foil by an adjusted figure of 1.4 per cent, the biggest such decline since February, 1948. The consumer price index will be issued later in the month. Another of the economic indexes coming out shortly is the July survey o^employment. It is scheduled Friday.

Raising the Champion Steers ' Old Friends' on County Fair Circuit Panel Subpoenas Records Of Nixon Home Spending WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Government Operations Committee voted unanimously today to subpoena records of government spending on President Nixon's private homes, reported to total between $3.5 million and $3.7 million. The committee took the action even though it had received a letter from Bryce N. Harlow, a presidential counsel, assureing the members that all the spending records would be turned over voluntarily starting next Monday. The committee adopted a resolution that also provided for possible subpoena of similar records covering use of federal funds for the residences of Nixon's four immediate predecessors, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower and Truman: Administration officials have said a new definitive statement on spending for Nixon's homes in Key Biscayne, Fla., and San Clemente, Calif., probably would be issued this week. They said it was expected to show a total of $3.5 million to $3.7 million had been spent on the properties in the name of increased security and safety for the President. 96th Meeting Spying, Amnesty On Bar Agenda By WILLIAM CAMPBELL (Staff Writer) The two Angus steers named grand, champion and reserve grand champion during the steer show Wednesday at this Knox County Fair are we<Il acquainted. . They've bsen dueling for the tap two spots all along the fair circuit this season, and they always win. TWICE THIS year the 1,139- pound steer named Frosty has been ohossn grand ohaimpLon and has chief connpettaiom, a l ,099Hpound steer simply called Angus, was the reserve. At '.»wo other shows, Angus was grand champion and Frosty was reserve. Wednesday, from a field of 47 steers, Frosty won his third grand championship. As usual, Angus was the reserve chaniipion. Frosty is owned by the Horsley Brothers of near Toulon. He got his name from a peculiar characteristic — at toast for a champion. His ears are only aboutl two inches long. "He was born Feb. 9 (1972) in Montana," Jim Horsley explained. "It was a very cold night in Montana." Frosty's ears froze off the night he was born. But it obviously hadn't hurt him otherwise, as Wednesday the Horsley's gat -him ready for the next show — the Illinois State Fair. ANGUS, Wednesday's runner-up, is owned by the Reel family of Congerviile. He'll be headed for Springfield, too, to continue the match. Which one will win there? No one was making predictions Wednesday, but many losers in yesterday's show were saying that one of them would. A prominent local livestock raiser with a good track record at county livestock shows said Wednesday, "We didn't do so well today. It doesn't bother me that much, though, not when you lose to beef like that." Dr. Harlan Richie, a Mich- Dr. Harlan Richie . . ( . the best anywhere igan State University professor and nationally-known livestock judge who evaluated Wednesday's steer show, also commented on the quality of the entries. "AN EXCELLENT set of steers," he. responded. "The best I've seen anywhere." Dean Simkins, director of the livestock show at the fair, agreed. "It (the competition) was real tough. There just were no bad steers here today," Simkins said. "Just outstanding." Following the judging, Richie took the microphone and explained to about 100 spectators why he picked the two steers. "It was very close," Richie said, "but these two were desirable as light-heavyweights. They had just the right amount of finish — enough, but not too much." Prize money for winning grand champion was $200 and the reserve took home $100. The two steers also came in first and second in their class, of course, and won an additional $50 and $45 each there. RICHIE separated Wednesday's steer show into five categories, classed by weight. Winner of the lightweight division — 880 to 973 pounds — was also shown by the Horsley Brothers. Second through fifth places went to steers owned by Tom Carter, Lewistown; Spivey's Angus Farm near New Windsor; Howlett Brothers, Rock Falls, and Sandy Hand, Prophetstown. A steer shown by Brent Ericson took first place in the £81 -1,028 - pound weight class. The other four winners in that class, in order, were Brad lindskog, Prophetstown; the Reel family, which took both third and fourth, and Guen Frothers, Genesee, who won fifth place. The third class included steers weighing from 1,031 to 1,073 pounds. Winners in order were Louis Perino, Deer Grove; Michelle Howlett (Howlett Brothers Farm); Jim Horsley (Horsley Brothers); Randy Spivey (Spivey's Angus Farm), and Greg Chatterton, Bllisville. Third, fourth and fifth places m.the 1,079 to 1,144-pound class, led by the grand champion and reserve champion, were Lindskog; Nancy Starman, Manito, and Larry Mitchell, Roseville. THE HEAVYWEIGHT class included steers weighing 1,149 to 1.309 pounds. Winners were Debbie Eddleman, Alexis; Rhonda Starman, Manito; Hewlett Brothers; Kris Lindskog, Prophetstown, and Dan McManus, Aledo. '"Oris is the first year for this particular show," Simpkins said Wednesday, "and as far as the quality of the beef — I just couldn't be more impressed. "We hope it'll be this good every year," he added. Frosty and Angus are headed south toward Springfield for another duel. The competition there is at least as tough as Wednesday 's show provided. But if they maintain this pace, everyone else will come in third again. WASHINGTON (UPI) - The 96th annual meeting of the American Bar Association opened here today with an agenda showing controversial subjects from amnesty to Watergate. Both the Assembly, which comprises all members of the association, and the 318-member policy - making House of delegates are expected to consider resolutions deploring participation - of lawyers in the Watergate scandals and calling for discipdinary proceedings. Speeches and panel discussions by more than 700 persons prominent in every facet of the law will run through Aug. 9. Participants include present and former Cabinet officers, Supreme Court justices, mem* bers of Congress and other political figures and foreign dignitaries. Chief Justice Warren E. Burger will follow the recently established custom of delivering a "state of the judiciary" message at the opening of the Assembly Monday. Samuel Dash, chief counsel of the Senate Watergate inves tigating committee, and the chief minority counsel, Fred D. Thompson, will address themselves to "Watergate — a View from Capitol Hill" at a Saturday lunch. The House of Delegates, meeting Aug. 6 to 9, will consider major issues referred to it from the association's many sections and committees. For instance, the section on individual rights and responsibilities is expected to recommend repeal of state laws that hamper free access, to birth control devices and procedures, including voluntary sterilization. The section also recommends taking off the criminal law books "noncommercial" sexual conduct crimes between consenting adults in private and simple possession and "casual distribution" of marijuana. Other issues include whether newsmen should be allowed to keep their sources confidential, condemnation of the Soviet emigration tax, machinery for removal of misbehaving federal judges and tax relief for single persons.
