MEDIA, Pa. (') - W. A.
"Tony" Boyle, a man who once
counseled presidents of the Unit-
ed States as head of the power-
ful United Mine Workers
(UMW), was sentenced to three
consecutive life sentences yes-
terday for ordering the 1969 as-
sassination of a union rival.
"All I can say is I'm inno-
ent," said the pale 73-year-old
Boyle in a firm voice as he
stood erect and unsmiling be-
fore Delaware County Judge
Francis Catania. Then he
blinked his blue eyes, bit his
lips, clasped his hands behind
his back and remained silent.
BOYLE was convicted in the
same courtroom 17 months ago
of three counts of first-degree
murder for the Dec. 31, 1969
shootings of Joseph "Jock" Yab-
lonski; his wife, Margaret, and
daughter, Charlotte, while they
slept in their Clarksville, Pa.,
Special Prosecutor Richard
Sprague, who had successfully
prosecuted seven other men and
a woman in the Yablonski slay-
ings, demanded the severest
penalty-consecutive life terms
-because Boyle "caused a
whole family to be assassin-
Boyle currently is serving a
three-year federal sentence in
Springfield, Mo., for illegallyl
using UMW funds in the 1968
presidential election in support
of Republican Richard Nixon.
That sentence will be complet-
ed at the end of 1976.
Catania ordered Boyle to be-
gin his murder sentences in a
state prison at Dallas, Pa., aft-
er completing the federal term.
He also fined Boyle $100 for
each murder conviction, and or-
dered him to pay court costs
estimated at more than $25,000.

WASHINGTON 0') - The Ag-l
riculture Department revised
slightly downward yesterday its'
forecast of a record U.S. grain
harvest. But the prediction in-
dicated ample grain would be
produced to permit further sales
to the Soviet Union.
The corn crop is expected to
total nearly 5.69 billion bushels,
USDA said. Wheat production
was estimated at 2.14 billion
bushels. Both are records.
IF THE wheat harvest comes
in at the predicted level, it
would mean the United States
would have nearly 769 million
bushels of wheat available for
foreign sale without jeopardiz-
ing domestic supplies.
The United States is expected
to consume 71.2 million bushels
of wheat this year. Foreign
wheat sales are expected to to-
tal 1.3 billion bushels, including
the 154 million bushels already,
sold to the Soviet Union. !
Total foreign sales of corn are}
expected to be about 1.5 billion
ALTHOUGH the forecasts in-
dicate ample grain will be avail-
able for foreign sale, uncertain-
ty over the actual harvest has
prompted some speculation in
the commodity market and
caused some price increases.
Agriculture Department econ-
omists say the grain purchased
thus far by the Soviet Union will
add about 1.5 per cent to con-
sumer food prices through 1976.
President Ford, campaigning
in New Hampshire, did not rule
out the possibility that the Unit-
ed States might attempt to swap
American wheat for Soviet oil.
In an interview, Ford said, "I
wouldn't rule out the possibility
that that might materialize."

ning part of the old buffer zone
a few miles away for more than
a year. The Swedish desert vet-
erans say life might be tough
for the U.S. civilians.
"There are landmines all over
the place," says a Swedish cap-
tain bouncing through the sand
and heat in a desert patrol car.
Rows of deadly explosive
charges, Israeli and Egyptian,
lie a yard on each side of the
car and stretch as far as the
eye can see.
At least five U.N. soldiers
were killed in the Sinai last year
by exploding mines, despite
safety paths cleared by Polish
army sappers. "Nobody knows
how many mines there are in
the buffer zone," says Lt. Col.
Nils-Goran Staf of the Royal
Guards, deputy commander of
the Swedish contingent. "Butl
there are millions of them."
"WE can avoid the mines -
they are marked on maps,"
says a Swedish private. "But
we can't map the scorpions or
mice, and we have a lot of
both." The Swedes haven't lost
a man yet to a scorpion bite,
but they keep their first aid kits
The Americans will be sta-
tioned seven to 11 miles east of
the present buffer, in the bleak
Gidi and Mitla mountain passes,
but the passes have their mine-
fields, too, and scorpions abound
all over the Sinai.

would not be immune to sniper
bullets, or in Israel, where Arab
