WHEAT DEAL CITED:
Report says Nixon
hurt small farmers

j
_,

WASHINGTON (PM - A study, us-
ing the huge U.S.-Soviet grain deal
as an example, says the Nixon ad-
ministrption is damaging s m a 11
farmers. and consumers while ca-
tering to big exporters and other
corporate giants.
The Agribusiness Accountability
Project accuses the Department of
Agriculture .(USDA) of scuttling
a Ireaty which had set minimum
prices for world wheat trade and
of ;freely engaging in "job shut-
tling" of employes between private
business and the government.
"Agribusiness has installed itself+
asp USDAs chief client, 'and the
department -'created as a farm-
er's agency-isn't," says a report
published yesterday.
:The .t.S. grain sale to the Sov-
ies, estimated at $1 bllion, in-
ludes "about 400 million bushels of
wheat plus other grain and soy-
tbeans.
The report says a treaty orig- '
inated in the Johnson administra-'
tion, called the International Grains
Arrangement. (IGA), attempted to
set minimum and maximum pric-
es for wheat on the world market.
It failed, the report said, b e-
cause the Nixon adrinistration op-
posed international price-fixing.
"Gutting the IGA was one of the
firsttasks the Department of Ag-
riculture performed for the grain;

Atlanta
ATLANTA, Ga. (A) - A federal
appeals court, declaring Atlanta's
school system' "virtually totally
segregated," has ordered the city
to get a desegregation plan in op-
eration in seven weeks.
The order, which calls for t h e
cty'Bod~d of Education to devise
and implement a plan by Nov. 27
alinost certainly will necessitate
the busing of pupils.
A three judge panel of the U.S.
5th Circuit Court of Appeals is-
sued the order Friday in N e w
Orleans. It stems from a desegre-
gation suit filed 14 years ago by
the National Association for t h e
Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP). a
"It's about as severe an order
as they could give us," Asst.
School Supt. Ed Cook said yester-
4ay.
The ruling necessitates abolish-
ment of the racial bomogenity of
20 white schools and calls for pair-
ing or grouping of contiguous
schools for purposes of racial bal-
ance. t.
.In refusingthe NAACP plan, the
District Court had argued t ha t
busing would cause an increase
i the white flight from the city of
the suburbs.
The federal appeals court noted
that argument in its order, which,
in, effect, reverses the 1 o w e r
court ruling. "The fear of w h i t e
students' flight shall not be util-
ized as a factor incomposing this
plan," the court said.

trade. after President Nixon took
office," the report says.
The treaty was replaced by aI
weaker agreement which has no
control over prices, the report
says.
Partly as a result, the Soviet Un-
ion was able to buy cut-rate U.S.
wheat at subsidized prices. Since
the sale, wheat prices have jump-
ed and this is expected to bring
higher grain-food prices.
',The world in which wheat isI
traded is hardly a world of f r e e
trade," the report says. "It reeks
of price protection, conflicting in-
ternational interests, political con-
siderations, finite markets. a n d'
trade blocks."
Sales to the Soviets were hand-'
led by large export firms, inclid-
ing Continental Grain Co., N.Y.,
and Cargill,, Inc., Minneapolis.
Secretly transacted last June
and July, the impact of these sales
was not generally known u n t i 1
wheat prices began soaring in late
July and August.I
Accusations of secrecy, finacial
losses by farmers in early harvest
areas and questions over inside
information possibly leaked by the
Agriculture Department have pro-
duced a skein of Congressional in-
vestigations, White House orders
for an FBI probe, and countless
election-year charges and denials.
