Soviets may sell to pay for grain By JOHN' BAUSMAN transferred large amounts of j MOSCOW (AT) In tbe la.it month or so Soviet huyer.s have gonc to ttiu Id rnarket lo pick up millions of Ions of grain, apparently lo make up a serious shortage in tlicir own production. Western specialists here fig- ure the Soviets have run up a hill oi around Si.4 hillion in grain deals with Canada, tbe United States, France anil Aus- tralia. Unless Hie Soviets have n special reserve fund that no one knows about, there are two main ways they can raise the money; Ry reducing ptanncd industrial investment or selling gold, of which Ihe Soviet Union is one of the world's major pro- durcrs. Rumors of Soviet gold sales, carried out m planned, have cropping up in ar.d Switzerland. The Soviet Union never pul lishes an accounting of its for- eign currency holdings or golrl re.se rves. So far TIS specialists hero know, the Soviet Union has made no substantial gold sales since the In tbe years to IOCS, also a time of harvest trouhles, Soviet gold sales are believed to have run around million a year. In 1966 tbcy tapered off to in significance. There is a pcssihility the So- viet-; arc fjnietly and regularly selling off small amounts ONCK MADTC BIG RALKS n early years the Soviets tended to make big gold deals For special purposes and rnajo payments they cither sold o old. Rut thai was at a limo when old Kohl at the fixed rate of >35 U.S, an ounce, no matter LOW much was put on the mar LCl. With a free price now run- iJng nearly double the inter- governmental fixed price of in ounce, the Soviets face a dif- ereiit kind ol market. If they tried to sell large quanUtics at one time, they coultl depress the market and owor the value of their gold. Thus some observers here do not look Eor any dramatically arge Soviet gold sales. They speculate that Ihc Soviets may lave started selling off small amounts of gold to avoid big leals that would weaken prices. This could account for unoffi- cial reports over the last few months that Swirl gold was >cing sold in Zurich, Suitzer- land. The U.S. treasury con- firmed last month that a rela- tively small .shipment of Soviet gold, Si ,327 ounce's, had her-n received from Switzerland by a licensed American buyer. AMOUNT A KKCKKT Just how much gold Ihe So- viets have in reserve is closely guarded secret. Conservative Western estimates nm around GO million ounces, which would be billion at (he fixed inter- national price or nearly double that on the free market. Some Western estimates run substantially higher than that although the sources are about the basis ofr thcih fig- ures. Anriual Soviet gold production Ls another figure hard lo pin down. The conservative e.sti mate is ahout seven million unc.cs, vorth about mil- at the current free market e. Again other Western esti- nates run somewhat aljovc this igurc to around 10 million lunces.
