His was one of the victims of the homosexual mass slaying which came to light here this week. One Houston official said part of the answer was the great Many factors Cause 'panic' grain buying WASHINGTON The latest estimate on the U.S. wheat harvest was not good enough. Despite U.S. agriculture de- partment forecasts Thursday of record wheat and corn harvests this grain prices are still climbing on commodity mark- ets in the mid-west. Brokers fearing a world-wide shortage of grain were willing to pay sky-high prices to assure deliv- eries when the harvests come in. And because grain is a vital component in cattle and dairy the prices for meat and eggs soared as well on Ameri- can exchanges. Wheat which sold for a bushel 14 months ago and for only a month ago was fetching about a bushel in cash markets Friday. Other grains and soybeans showed similar spectacular rises. What has happened to the Where will it Agricultural experts here say a whcle variety of factors have contributed to the near-panic situation. They tick them off like items on a grocery be- ginning with last summer's crop failures in the Soviet Un- through the disappearance of the anchovy schools off and on to drought or floods or civil war in Latin Amer- India and Asia. What few experts are willing to do is predict where the price spiral will stop. they grain prices should reach a plainly unrealistic level at some a level which would discourage demand and assure that this year's abundant U.S. crops will suffice. But many observers believe the peak has been still prices DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic Suite 8-----304 5th St. S. Ph. 377-7244 Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz and his staff sometimes seem to be the only officials in Washington who still believe that some form of export con- trol on wheat and other grains will not be required to stem the pressure of foreign buying. The U.S. carryover of wheat was only 428 million bushels as of July the lowest in 21 years. If current projections about harvests and demand prove ac- the carryover next July 1 would be only 266 about half the annual amount the U.S. is expected to need merely for its domestic food supply.

Part of the price panic has been caused by the fact that while the agriculture depart- ment foresees total export sales billion bushels for the small grain Soviet repre- sentatives quietly placed huge total of with a series of American deal- ers. They got bargain prices and persuaded the U.S. to fi- nance most of the deal on credit. In the federal treas- ury subsidized American deal- ers to the tune of more than million under an export- subsidy program and provided an estimated million to U.S. shipping companies for helping carry the cargo to Soviet ports.

The U.S. imposed controls on exports of soybeans and some other farm products earlier this bringing down a tor- rent of recrimination from for- eign customers in Ja- pan and Europe. CONTROLS REJECTED Agriculture officials say Butz now would be reluctant to curb wheat and other grain exports because of the further damage such controls would do to the U.S. reputation as a reliable supplier of farm products. Much of the blame for the current American grain prob- lems is being placed squarely on last summer's unprece- dented sales to the Soviet Un- ion. Critics In Congress accuse Butz and the Nixon adminis- tration of the deal. With grudging admiration for the slick way the Soviet buyers exploited weaknesses in the U.S. grain-export the critics are also suspicious that there were manipulations and gouging by American grain companies. Alone among the major grain- exporting nations of the the U.S. relies on private tra- ders for its grain sales abroad. Australia and other ex- porters use central agencies like the Canadian Wheat Board. Until exporters in the U.S. were not even required to advise Washington about for- eign sales. The Soviet deal changed that. Faced with a disastrously number of teen-age runaways in the city. Lieut. Joe head of the Houston police department's juvenile said are just m many runa- ways from other neighborhoods in this city and for that from any large He said the number of runa- ways frequently masks truly missing persons. we bad down from ttw previous year. And In we had runaways. I do not be- lieve the number of runaways is decreasing. I think parents are no longer reporting them. Last year for the first time we had more girls reported as runa- ways than boys. Boys are still running but the parents just aren't telling Skipper said police actively seek all runaways reported to them by parents as long as the child is under 17 years of age. 10 years we as- sume they are lost and a police unit is sent at once to assist the he said. But Detective Patricia Faw- kes of the juvenile missing per- sons bureau dcn't have the manpower to conduct intensive And Skip- per agrees after 30 days if no progress has been the missing person report goes into the inactive file. It stays there until the youngster is 21 or po- lice happen to run across him. Iir juvenile officers say about 95 per cent of missing juveniles either return home or are found. Skipper said his department doesn't keep that kind of fig- ures. He said not more than 200 or 900 missing juveniles a year are actually found by his de- partment and be has no idea how many come home after their files are placed in the in- active section. Senator Henry Jackson has said the shortages caused by the Soviet deal have added billion to the grocery bills of American housewives. Butz retorts that the charge is a exports have added only one cent to the cost of a loaf of bread and that he doesn't regret seeing record prices paid to American farm- ers. Subcommittees Senate and the of both the House have opened investigations into tire Soviet deal and the general ac- counting which carries out inquiries for is making its own study. REPORTS FALSE Two American grain com- including the pace-set- ting Continental Grain have already been accused of filing false reports about their sales. The effect was allegedly to conceal the size of Soviet purchases from the agriculture which might have cut export and from American many of whom sold their crops before news of the Soviet deal sent prices upward. Agriculture department offi- cials say the Soviet purchases were only one of the causes of current tight situation.
