Actions To Halt
Secretary of Agriculture Or
ville L. Freeman has expressed
deep concern over the down
ward trend in wheat and grain
prices which the U.S. Depart
ment of Agriculture is taking
a number of actions to check.
The Secretary said:
“I share the frustration of
our country’s grain growers
over a price problem that is
persisting beyond the end of
surpluses. There is no wheat
surplus in the United States
today, but as we try to adjust
to the ‘New Era’ farm pro
grams that make it possible to
approximately gear yearly pro
duction to yearly needs we are
finding that immediate supply
levels occasioned by world
wide bumper crops are prompt
ing irregular and discouraging
short-term market action.
“An oversupply at harvest
time in the U.S. has temporari
ly glutted the market and
forced prices down.
“We also are faced with the
continuing effect on our price
levels of production in other
countries. Both Western and
Eastern Europe grain crops
are big this year. The Soviet
crop, while not as large as last
year, is expected to be large.
Indian crop prospects are far
better than in the last two
