When the new crop is ready iext summer, the- department expects the wheat reserve to be 210 million bushels, less than one-half the stockpile last sum- Tier and the smallest since 1948. May Be High The estimate, however, may )o too high. Listings by export- ers show about 1.3 billion bush- :ls of wheat may be sold over- icas this season, about 125 mil- ion bushels more than depart- nent estimates. Thus, if Ihe higher figure .'orrcct, the wheat stockpile iext July 1 could be 85 million msliels. That is not enough to ncet requirements in an ordcr- y manner, say bakers and ithcr domestic users.

Tlie first calculation is to add certain figures to the monthly take-home pay such as pay- ments to a credit union and payments for bonds and medi- cal insurance. Subtract Expenses .The second calculation is to subtract a portion of work-relat- ed expenses, such as travel, uni- 'orms and maintaining clothing. The amount subtracted is ten percent of the expenses or whichever is less. The third calculation is to subtract certain hardship ex- penses: medical expenses if they total more than in a month, child care costs, pro-rat- ed expenses of the education of Ihe applicant or spouse (not Iheir children) and deductions tor natural disasters or acts of God, such as fire or tornado, if the applicant sustained a loss not repaid by insurance. Harmon explained that if a student pays for tuition and for books for one quarter, this expense would be di- vided by three to determine the expense for the month used to determine eligibility Figure C ..The figure arrived at by the third calculation is referred to as figure C. The fourth calculation is to compile expenses for housing, including rent or mortgage pay- ments, utilities and tax and in- surance for a residence. In determining the utility cost, a six-month average or a pro-rated figure from a manual is used instead of: the previous month's cbsts. Taxes and insur- ance also are pro-rated.

This is referred to as fig- ure E. The sixth calculation is to subtract figure E from figure D to arrive at a "shelter deduc- tion." The seventh calculation is to subtract the shelter deduction irom figure C to arrive at the 'adjusted net income." That is the figure used to de- :ermine eligibility and define he cost of food stamps, Harmon said. A large chart supplied by he government is used to deter- mine the cost of the stamps. Eligibility Households with only one per son arc eligible for stamps if heir adjusted net income is less han The figures for other louseholds are as follows: Two persons, three persons, four persons, five persons, six persons, ?G46; seven .persons, eight persons, nine persons, ten persons, According to the chart some ,iersons may not have to pay anything for their stamps. The imount of stamps to be rc- :eived is determined on the jasis of the number of persons n Ihe family as follows (with he maximum amount that night be charged in parcnthe- One person, two icrsons, three pcr- ons, four persons, 142 five persons, six persons, even persons, eight Total Amount when warm weather arrives.

Dr. Douglas Bauer, deputy as- sistant director of research for he energy office, said daylighi ,ime will save energy, because .he demand for energy does no stay constant it hits peaks and valleys during a 24-hour cycle.

Oregon, gasoline dealers approved a voluntary ationing plan in which motor- sts would gas up on alternate ays according to the last lumbers of their license plates. A maritime union leader chal- enged the oil shortage Tues- ay, terming it "as phony as a 9 bill." According to Jesse Cal- oun, president of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Assn., the il industry deliberately staged shortage in hopes of increas- ig the price of natural gas, rid- ing the industry of environ- icntal restrictions, and to open 10 offshore oil fields to large cale drilling. Two major oil firms Stan- ard Oil of Indiana and Gulf Oil jointly bid more than nillion for rights to the first overnmcnt-backcd shale pro- uction project.
