Group seeks profit on buried gold BOSTON (AP) -Lee Bailey has confirmed that he is the at- torney for a group seeking to make a profit on 100 tons of gold buried in New Mexico and that he called John Mitchell, attorney-general of the United States about the matter last spring. John Dean, former White House counsel, brought up the subject during the Watergate bearings last Tuesday. Dean testified that he at- tended a luncheon meeting with Mitchell and H. R. Baldeman, then White House chief of staff. Dean quoted Mitchell as say- ing: "Bailey has a client who has an enormous amount of gold in his possession and would like to make an arrangement with the government whereby the gold could be turned over to the government without the client being prosecuted for hold- ing the gold." Bailey denied on Friday that he was trying to work out.a deal under which his clients would escape prosecution on federal statutes prohibiting the hoarding of gold. He said he called Mitchell be- cause he is "an experienced lawyer who knew his way around the White House." Mit- chell was in private practice at the time of the call, Bailey said. Bailey said the gold is in the form of bars and old Mexican, Spanish and Indian corns and artifacts. He estimated the gold to be worth about million.

As a result of this competi- tion, the United was moved to embargo tbeexp ort- ing of soybeans and cotton- seeds and their byproducts, meal and oil, last Wednesday. There is a growing belief that the embargo may soon be ex- panded to cover exports of corn as well. Not only are people tending to improve their diet all over the world, but so are the unprece- dented herds and flocks of cat- tle, hogs and poultry. The days when cattle lived on grass, bogs on garbage and poultry on whatever was at hand is over in this country and is beginning to pass into history in the rest of the world. Today, livestock in the Unit- ed States consumes far more grain and soybean products than humans do. About 80 per cent of the 5.4 billion ushels of com produced in the nation last year was fed directly to live- stock. Despite record crop produc- tion last year there will be per- haps 2 million more humans to feed, along with 4 million Sore nsad of cattle, a million or more hogs and countless millions of chickens. The biggest consumer of grains and soybean meal is the American steer. During its 14 to 16-month lifetime, the steer will eat an average of 650 pounds of corn, sorghums, oats and wheat and about 30 pounds of soybean meal each month. The old days when a steer could have an acre of range to itself are over. Land is too expensive. Range-fed animals take longer to mature, and their meat is tougher and stringier. Today each acre of a cattle feed lot is crammed wifti animals. Until recently, the United States was the only major livestock producer in the world using "confinement feeding." now such major livestock pro- ducers as Australia, Argentina ward tills method. According to U.S. cattlemen, the Soviet Union has become another recent convert to con- finement feeding of its estimat- ed 104 million head of cattle. The most dramatic livestock population explosions have been taking place outside the United States, among people who ae even more eager for meat in their diet. The United States agriculture department estimates that In- dia, with the world's larrgest cattle population, has 200 mil. lion head. But they ae con- sidered sacred by most of the people. Only a reriatively small numbe of cattle are safughter- ed by the Moslem minority. The United States is second with 122 million head of cat- tle, compared with 110 million four years ago. The Soviet Un- ion has increased its cattle herds to 104 million bead from 94 million in that period. Bra- zil is believed to have some 100 million head oC cattle. Australia has shown the biggest increase in the bat four years, to 28 million head from 20 million. Argentina expand- ed to 52 million head from 48 million, and New Zealand to 9.3 million head from 8.3 mil- lion. Even morr damatic is the fact that the new wealthy na- tions Jaapn and those in western Europe have only now begun to place beef on the tables of ordinary people regu- larly. In the Soviet Union and China, where livestock statis- tics are mere guesses, their combined population of morer than a billion people is also just beginning to consume beef to any extent, as far as the world protein market is con- cerned. U.S. banks increase lending rate NEW YOEK (AP) Large United States banks from coast to coast raised their prime lend- ing rates to eight per cent from 7% per cent Monday, respond- ing to anti-inflationary moves by the Federal Reserve System last Friday. The increases appeared to signal the eighth general hike in the rate this year and the sec- ond in less than two weeks. The prime is the minimum interest on loans to top corporate cus- tomers and increases tend to dampen spending by raising the cost of business loans. The prime, which has been climbing since early last year from 4% per cent, has gained two full points this year and is drawing close to its record high of 8% per cent, reached during the tight-money days of late 1969.
