SETTLEMENT of the "nation's longest and toughest labor
dispute" was announced yesterday in Washington.
An agreement protecting the jobs of the railroad industry's re-
maining 18,000 locomotive firemen was announced by M. W. Hampton,
assistant president of the AFL-CIO United Transportation Union.
The agreement calls for continued employment of the current
firemen until they retire, resign, die, are discharged for cause or
are promoted to locomotive engineer.
The dispute dates back to 1924 when the first diesel engines
were introduced that eventually replaced all the old coal-burning
steam locomotives on the nation's railroads.

INDIA IS READY to ship to North Vietnam high-yield rice
seeds developed from seedlings and research financed by Ameri-
can philanthropic foundations.
The project, however, has not gone any further than obtaining
necessary clearances from the Indian Foreign Ministry.
"Even if we wanted to send the seeds now, how are we to send
them?" a spokesperson asked, saying the shipment would be kept
out by American mines in North Vietnamese harbors.
The project began in the mid-1960's with seedlings imported from
the International Rice Research Institute near Manila, and was financ-
ed by the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations.
THE MARCH OF DIMES in Jefferson County, Kentucky sent

Republican Party in this all-important election year."
Approximately 8,000 Jefferson County residents are getting mailed
an apology for the printers mistake that left the March of Dimes
THE MICHIGAN HOTDOG won a congressional reprieve yes-
terday from action that would have lowered its standards.
The House Agricultural Committee voted against an amendment
to a bill that would have forced Michigan to comply with less strict
packaged meat standards imposed by the federal government.

bologna, sausage and meat loaf contain only skeletal fresh meat. Fed-
