meetings and in the press to ease an acute shortage by getting along with less Local leaders are being warned that bread must be saved and that prices may be raised Despite these warnings there ap pears no great probability that any Soviet citizen will go seriously short of bread Emergency wheat purchases abroad running about 7 million tons will offset crop losses during the past year due to drought and persistent mismanagement of plantingandI harvesting The loss apparently is about 10 per cent of the crop which last year was 65 million tons The shortage and the bad har vesting have sent

snow While Ivan and Natasha may not go short of bread the shortage of wheat and corn seems certain to make them short of meat again this year Grain was lost in the virgin lands last year because thousands of combines and tractors lay idle in the fields for lack of spare parts As early as Aug 28 the paper Farm Lifa reported that some farms had not finished the repair of harvesting machines and combines before the beginning of this years harvest In some areas only 20 per cent of the machinery was used In the Irkutsk area of eastern Siberia the iaper said Peas started to fall out of the pods
