African Sext plets Are Given Good Chance by Don Kendall a farm writer Washington a the government says rising middleman costs not record farm prices for wheat have accounted for most bread Price increases since huge Grain sales were made to the soviet Union 18 months ago. An analysis of bread costs compiled by agriculture department economists shows that a one Pound loaf sold in supermarkets in july 1972 for an average of 24.5 cents. Last november the same size loaf Cost 31.5 cents the department said. The increase of seven cents included a boost of 2.7 cents in the Cost of All farm ingredients used. Of that wheat flour the main item accounted for 2.2 cents. But other markups including margins for flour Millers and Bakers added about 4.3 cents per loaf to the retail Cost during the 18-month Span according to a study by the departments economic research service. The figures however did not indicate what May happen to bread prices in the next few months. Neither do they reflect Sharp increases in wheat prices since last november. Bakers say huge wheat exports Are siphoning off reserves to such an extent that bread prices May soar perhaps to $1 per 24-ounce loaf if shipments Are not curbed until the new Harvest is ready. At that rate a 16-ounce loaf used by the economists As the Basic indicator would Cost about 65 cents in retail stores. That would be More than double the Price of bread reported for last november.

Susan Rosenkowitz High schooners take to snuff Copperas Cove Tex. Apr the old fashioned habit of snuff dipping has become the rage among some High schooners Here and the authorities done to like it. This is not the effete old English habit of opening a Silver snuff Box taking a Pinch and delicately sniffing it. This is the Pioneer and deep South procedure of pulling out the lower lip shaking in a generous portion of tobacco closing the lip and letting it seep around. The problem is that snuff begins to make the Mouth water. Sometime or other the user must discharge the overflow or drown. If a Pupil were in a corridor there went a new Brown splotch on the floor.

He estimated 50 boys use snuff or chewing tobacco in the 1,200-Pupil school. Then he thought a minute and raised the number to 65. Any actually dipping in class a ooh we be had a few kids coming to class with a jaw or a lip full a said the principal. Have the girls taken up the habit As did their Pioneer great grandmothers a a in be heard of it but i Haven t seen any of it around Here a Powell said. It seems that the new snuff dippers have added a new twist that probably would make an old time dipper ill. A a it a not powdered stuff like that Garrett snuff. Its a moist powder a Powell said. A and this new stuff is Sweet and it comes in flavors like Wintergreen and Raspberry and two or three
