GAO will delay its report on alleged misuse of GOP funds By MIKK WATERS WASHINGTON (AP) - The General Accounting Office has decided to delay its report on alleged Republican misuse of campaign funds after a talk with a top Nixon re-election official produced "new facts." The announcement of the delay came after a GAO auditor met in Miami Beach, Fla., with Maurice H. Stans, Nixon's chief fund raiser. However, a spokesman for the office Wednesday denied the report, was being delayed because of the Republican National Convention. Earlier, Paul Barrick, treasurer of the Committee for the Re-election of the President, denied reports of any law violations and said the finance leaders of the committee had sought to comply with requirements irt the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971. Meanwhile, Rep. Wright Patman, D-Tex., chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, accused the GAO of blocking committee investigators probing a connection between the possible violations and the June 17 Democratic National C o m m i tt e e headquarters break-in. By DON KENDALL WASHINGTON (AP) Beef and pork cost more than ever before in July while overall supermarket food prices rose 1.8 per cent, the Agriculture Department said today. Supermarket prices for the year are running 4.5 per cent more than in 1971, the department said. Most of the gain was attributed to higher prices paid farmers and mark-ups bv retailers, The overall retail-food-price increase was slightly more than the 1.2 per cent reported Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The department explained its meat index was for the entire month while BLS covered prices only in the first week of July, meaning prices rose through July. In all, a "market basket" list of farm-produced food, theoritically enough to feed an average; family for an entire year, cost $23 more than in June—a record of $1,322. Average beef prices for all cuts soared to more than 81.17 per pound in July, compared with $1.13% in Juris and the previous record of slightly less than $1.16 last February and March. A year ago beef was about $1.05 per pound. Pork averaged a record 85.6 cents per pound, compared with 82.0 in June. The previous high was 82.1 cents by 1970. The July report showed the price spread for beef rose the most between wholesalers and retailers. Farmers received the same as in June, and wholesalers who sell carcass beef actually received a little less. Prices of live beef cattle have dropped from recent high marks and the wholesale beef price also has edged down. Much of that reduction, however, was not Included in the July figures. Farmers got $16 of the market-basket increase mainly because of higher prices for hogs, chickens, eggs and some fresh vegetables. Middlemen who transport, process and sell food accounted for $7 of the rise. Compared with $528 in June, the farmers' share of the market basket in July was $544. The middlemen received $771 in June and $778 last month. Compared with June, lower prices were reported for milk, bread, tomatoes and lettuce. Communist China will vote in U.N. to bar Bangladesh UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Communist China was ready to cast its first U.N. veto today, to bar the admission of Bangladesh to the United Nations. Diplomatic sources said the Chinese were adamant in their stand as the Security Council scheduled an afternoon meeting to take up Bangladesh's bid after three weeks of backstage maneuvering. The session was viewed as another chapter in the Chinese-Soviet jousting for influence on the Indian subcontinent. Bangladesh, expecting defeat, was prepared to carry its campaign for membership before the General Assembly which convenes Sept. 18. It hopes to get the assembly to tell the Security Council to try again. China sought postponement of council consideration of the bid today. But if that failed, a Chinese veto was considered certain. The Nationalist Chinese regime used the veto once in the 26 years it occupied the Chinese seat on the council. Bangladesh, formerly East Pakistan, was born of the India-Pakistan war in December that Pakistan lost. The Soviet Union supported India in the war while China backed Pakistan..
