    DROUGHT HIT THE RUSSIAN WHEAT HARVEST IN THE UKRAINE HARD IN MAY AND THEY HAD TO USE WATER SPRAYING MACHINES TO TRY AND SAVE THE CROP WHICH CAME IN FAR SHOT SEE SHORT OF THEIR GOALS. THE AUTUMN CROP IN SIBERIA WAS DAMAGED BY BAD WEATHER AND THE SOVIET WHEAT HARVEST IS EXPECTED TO BE AT LEAST 40,000,000 TOMES TONS UNDER EXPECTATIONS. THERE IS A BREAD SAVING CAMPAIGN ON ALTHOUGH MOSCOW DENIES THERE WILL BE ANY ACTUAL SHORTAGE, LARGE WHEAT PURSE PURCHASES FROM THE U.S. WILL SEE TO THAT. BUT VEGETABLES ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY AT THE GOVERNMENT STORES IN MOSCOW AND THEY ARE HIGH PRICED AT THE FARMERS MARKET WHERE FEMURSEEE MAREEE FARMERS WEE SELL WHATEVER THEY GROW ON THEIR SMALL PLOTS OF PRIVATELY OWNED LAND. A LARGE CABBAGE, FOR EXAMPLE, GOES FOR ABOUT ONE ROUBLE OR A DOLLAR TWENTY TWO CENTS IN AMERICAN MONEY.
