REPORTER: John Chancellor

(DC) President Ford gives Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz go-ahead for another grain sale. Strategy is to win Midwest farm votes for Ford. Wheat prices dropped from $6.04 bu. in February `74 to $3.38 in December `75, partly due to embargo. Price now $3.80 bu.; target is over $4. Of 1975 harvest, 13.5 million tons already sold; 3.5 million tons more proposed. Agriculture spokesperson says food price won't go up. Consumer spokesperson says sale would threaten consumers.
