North America records farm production hike JL By KEVIN DOYLE THOMSOE, Norway (CP) NATO forces were fighting a simulated holding action today and laying the groundwork for a major offensive following a mock Invasion of tlwir defen- sive positions by "enemy" troops. The activity Is part of the largest combined land, sea and air operation staged by the al- liance since its foundbg in 1949. Nearly Canadian troops, most of them from the 3rd Bat- talion, Royal Canadian Regi- ment in Petawawa, Out., were among the defending forces meeting the attack which was launched before dawn Monday. Lt.-Ool. Philip Spencer, com- manding the Canadian contin- gent in the Arctic exercise known as Strong Express, said his troops performed extremely well Monday. "They are in fact, doing more than was required of he said in an interview at his headquarters tent in a heavily-wooded part of Nor- way's northwestern coast. DETECT 2! SHIPS Meanwhile, United Slates naval officers said Ihey have detected 22 Soviet vessels in the Atlantic and the seas north cl Norway since the exercise started Sept. 11. Rear-Admiral George Cassell, captain of the anli-submarine vessel Intrepid, said these ves scls have r.ot come within mile of NATO craft. Another officer said the Rus- sians have been showing "bet- ter manners." A recent agree- ment signed by the U.S. anc U.S.S.n. called for better rela lions on the seas and in other matters related to shipping. About 14 of the 22 vessels de- ectetl were to he So- viet submarines, naval official, said, Monday's "assault" wa made by about Norwegiar forces making three amphibi ous landings and two direc land allacks.

This is a principal finding o[ tha United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in its annual world review, which was released here. The United Nations agency, based in Rome, estimated total world fjrov.lh in agricultural and fisheries output in 1971 at about 3 per cent. The world's population, estimated at 3.G billion, is growing by about 2 per cent every year. 'According to the document, there may have been a "small decrease" in the percentage of the world's population that fe to be considered under nour- ished, but the number cf hun- gry people on earth remains 300 million lo 500 million. The 1971 rise in agricultural production was brought about mainly by the world's richest countries. "Unfortunately, It was not a particularly good year for the agricultural sector in the de- veloping Addeke H. Boerma, the agency's secre- tary goneral, declared in a fore- word.

The report, titled "the state of food and floriculture dealt only in passing with China, explaining that official informa- tion was unavialable from Pek- ing. The document referred to "rough outside estimates" as- suming a 10 per cent increase of China's national income dur- ing 1971. Agricultural output, estimated to contribute -30 per cent of China's gross national product the- sum of all goods and services produced was also believed to have risen 10 per cent last year, the report said. Farm production In the Sov- iet Union in 1971 was described as stagnant because of unfav orable weather. The report said :hat "the level of output con firmed the long trend upward.' Farming output in western Europe in 1G71 was said lo have been up 6 per cent, a growth rate much higher than that of recent years. In an analysis ot the record North American farm output, Ihe document said it had been brcrjjjht about almost exclusive- ly by crops, while total live- slock production rose only slightly. According to the findings, the value of agricultural exports from the United States reached a record level in 1971 bil- lion. The increase was said to have been only 0 per cent, as compared with 22 per cent in 1970, partly because of dock strikes that hampered) shipment in the second half of last year. tended to test the strength c NATO's northern flank.
