The Plain dealer said a the president has gone too far. The transcripts of White House conversations clearly involve him in a coverup to say the least.

High Point Enterprise Friday May to 1974 134 Turkey prices drop Birds destroyed Goldsboro no. Apr North Carolina Turkey growers third in the nation in production Are destroying eggs and slaughtering breeder flocks in an Effort to curb a Market glut that has driven wholesale prices to a 30-year Low. William Shepard of Goldsboro president of the National Turkey federation says housewives will Benefit with retail Turkey prices dropping As Low As 39 cents a Pound. But an unprecedented oversupply could prove disastrous for Many Turkey producers and will result in Sharp production cutbacks and skyrocketing prices later Shepard said. Shepard is general manager for Goldsboro milling co., one of three major producers in Eastern North Carolina. His firm produces 2.5 to 3 million turkeys a year. A producers today Are losing from $3 to $4 a Bird Quot he said. A but we re having to move the Birds. At the end of the first Quarter of 1974 there was an oversupply of Over 200 million pounds in cold with last years meat shortage retail prices of Turkey Rose As High As $1.19 a Pound last thanksgiving. The High prices and what appeared to be a prospective meat shortage resulted in greater production. But High prices not Only sparked increased production of other meat products they stimulated buyer resistance. Other problems also developed. Shepard said the government has been purchasing turkeys to Supply Public school lunchrooms around the nation. That program is being curtailed. Shepard was to appear before a congressional committee hearing this week to urge its continuation. Compounding the problem for producers has been Sharp increases in feed equipment and labor costs. For example feed prices were around $90 a ton two years ago. Today the same feed costs the producer $175 per ton. A the consumer is going to Benefit in the weeks ahead because the prices Are Down and will stay Down until the Supply is reduced. But a lot of producers Are going to be Hurt and some of them will be wiped out a said Shepard. He said one producer near Monroe destroyed 10,000 pouts in a single Day last week. A you can to keep raising them when you re going to lose 13 to 17 cents per Pound a he added. The problem is nationwide. Or. Harold b. Fighter evangelist revival. May 9 thru la 7 30 .
