Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - September 25, 1963, Bennington, Vermont Ii Oral Lim Erst troll rms eat less bread russians told Moscow apr soviet citizens who doubtless eat More bread than any other single food Are being told at private 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 appears 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 tilt past year due to drought and persistent mismanagement of planting and harvesting. The loss apparently is about to per cent of the crop which last year was 65 million tons. The shortage and the bad har vesting have sent Premier Khrushchev now in his 70th year storming about the country denouncing careless farming methods. Again one of his pet projects the Virgin lands in Siberia and Southwest Asia has let him Down As it did in other recent years. Harvesting in the Kazakhstan Virgin land area is so far behind schedule that it seems inevitable much Grain will rot in the Fields and some will be buried under the 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. This correspondent has just returned from a tour of Kuban the soviet unions Best farm area. A bumper crop of wheat was har Hawley company furniture manufacturers e.

The drought Hurt the Corn badly As Well As vegetables and fruit. Villages and towns in the area Are Short of vegetables. This is reflected also in Moscow and other cities. In the capital queues form every time a shop displays any fresh vegetables. 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 life 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 percent of the machinery was used. In the Irkutsk area of Eastern Siberia the paper said a peas started to fall out of the pods while Drivers were still testing their a half billion dollars is to be paid to Canada in the next 18 months for delivery of 5.3 million tons of wheat and 500,000 tons of flour. Another 1.5 million tons of wheat has been ordered from Australia with a like amount on option. Much of this will be shipped immediately to the soviet unions foreign customers to protect her position As a supplier. Flour cannot be bought at Many stores apparently because it can be hoarded while bread cannot. Many Farmers buy bread to feed to cows and pigs they Are allowed to raise privately for Market. One couple was pilloried in the press sunday for having bought nearly half a ton of flour bread Rice and Macaroni.
