Stafford lei the The tour was a break from Farmers Get Greater Share Of Marketbasket Dollar WASHINGTpN (AP) -Farmers received a little more last month ot what consumers spent for food, according to the latest marketing study by the Agriculture Department. Officials said Tuesday that a market basket of U.S. farm- produced food cost a record annual rate of $1,751 in August, up $25 from July. Higher returns to farmers accounted for $22 of the increase, with middlemen getting S3 more as their share. The report said farmers in August received an equivalent of 41.7 cents of each $1 shoppers spent in retail stores for U.S. farm-produced food, up slightly from 41 cents in July. In August last year the farm share was 51.9 cents of each food dollar spent. Over a one-year span, the fig- ures showed, it has been the middleman who has contributed most to higher food costs. In August 1973, the market basket was $1,653 on an annual basis. That means the indicator has gone up 598 since then. But the let increase occurred this way: During the year the farmer's share of the basket dropped $134. Middlemen, who process and sell food in the farm-to-consumer pipeline, increased their margin by $232 on an annual basis. Put still another way, accord ing to USDA's market baskei figures, the farmer's share o: the year's food bill -- computer for a theoretical household o 3.2 persons -- went down 15 per cent since August 1973 while the middleman share increased 28.3 per cent.

"I would tliink there would be vote taken in such a manner as to know .whether Dr. Le- laistre is being backed up or sn't," said regent Dr. James ~. Bauerle of San Antonio.
