Statistics Canada reported Fri- day in its first estimate of this year's principal field crops. The 1973 estimate, although larger than last year's produc- tion, is about two per cent lower than the 1962-71 average figure Of 614.2 million bushels.

Production of all major seed crops except barley and rape seed will rise, said the statistics bureau, with oats showing the largest increase. 333.3 million bushels compared with 300.2 million bushels in 1972.

Other accounts said two other vessels may have carried Soviet grain to Italy, he said.

De- fence Minister Lin Piao, Peking said Friday. The official New China news agency mentioned specifically that frontier guards in Sinkiang, the northwest province border- ing the Soviet Union, and troops in Inner Mongolia have been stepping up training. It said the army is paying special attention to a passage in a communique in which the 10th Communist party congress called on the people and army "to strengthen without fail their preparations against wars of aggression, be on guard against the outbreak of an imperialist world war and particularly against surprise attacks by so- cial-imperialism." "Social-im- perialism" is the derogatory Chinese term for the Soviet gov- ernment. The army's position toward the purge of Lin Piao has been i of interest because of the pre- siimed loyalty of a number of officers to the man who was I both defence minister 'the 19S9 party constitution- party Chairman Mao Tse-tung's chosen heir. Two years passed between i the time in September. 1971, I when, Chinese leaders say.

The announce- ment came at the party con- gress, which wrote Lin out of the constitution and denounced him as a Soviet henchman try- i ing to restore capitalism in China.
