In the news today ...

OTTAWA, Ontario--Canada has closed its
east coast ports to Soviet fishing vessels be-
cause of alleged overfishing in Canadian wa-
ters; the government announced yesterday. A
Canadian official said the move, which will
take effect July 28, was necessary after fail-
ure of diplomatic efforts to get the Soviets to
adhere to quotas set by an international com-
mission. "It will be a very serious inconven-
ience to them," the official said; but the Ca-
nadian agent for the Soviet fishing fleet called
the action "a futile gesture that will hurt no-
body but ourselves."
MIAMI BEACH, Fla.-Representatives of
the International Longshoreman's Association
(ILA) voted yesterday to refuse to load
American grain aboard ships bound for the
Soviet Union, but they gave union officials
the power to lift the ban. "If we do stop it
-and I hope we won't have to-we'll have the
support we need," said ILA President Thom-
as Gleason.
"We don't just want to kill the farmer out.
We want to see the government export pro-
duce. But we want assurances that our bro-
thers are protected." Meantime, Agriculture
Department officials said the Russians have
ended their $1.3 billion grain buying spree but
may start shopping again later this year. Over
the past few weeks the USSR has purchased
some 9.8 million metric tons of wheat, corn
and barley.
WASHINGTON-President Ford urged the
Senate yesterday to rewrite the 1965 Voting
Rights Act to make it apply equally in all 50
states, a plan previously rejected by the Sen-
ate. In a letter read by Democratic leader
Mike Mansfield shortly after the Senate voted
to limit debate time on a House-possed bill,
Ford noted that the bill's provisions for pro-
tecting voting rights of Spanish-Americans and
other language minorities would expand the
act's special restrictions to an additional eight
states. "What is right for 15 states is right for
50 states," Ford said. The House bill, like the
original law, would keep the primary applica-
tion of the act on seven Southern states.
RALEIGH, N.C.-Five blacks and seven
whites were empaneled as jurors yesterday in
the trial of Joan Little, a black woman ac-
cused of killing a white guard in a rural
North Carolina jail. The panel was seated
after 113 prospective jurors were considered
during eight days of jury selection. Four alter-

nates remain to be chosen. Eight women and
four men, many of them young, were chosen
to decide whether -Little stabbed the 62-year-
old night jailer in self-defense or, as the state-
contends, she murdered the man as part of an
escape plot. Four of the jurors expressed the
opinion on the stand that Little was inno-
cent even though they said they would base
their ultimate decision on the evidence.
LANSING-House-passed legislation to re-
peal the Fair Trade Act in Michigan was ap-
proved by the Senate Agriculture and Con-
sumers Committee yesterday in a 3-0 vote.
The proposal has the support of Governor Mil-
liken, the attorney general and several con-
sumer groups and was reported out of com-
mittee despite opposition from hardware deal-
ers and manufacturers.
The Fair Trade law, which originally was
intended to protect small businesses from be-
ing undersold by chain stores, prohibits all
retailers from selling goods below manufac-
turers' fixed prices. Said State representa-
tive Perry Bullard of Ann Arbor: "This was a
Depression-era act that hasn't accomplished
anything but to allow big manufacturers to
engage in price-fixing at the expense of con-
sumers." Bullard is the sponsor of the re-
DETROIT-The pace of new car sales in
mid-July was the highest for a mid-month
period since -une 1974, topping last year's de-
pressed figures by # per cent, U. S. automak-
ers reported yesterday. It was the first time
this model year that sales in a 10-day period
ran ahead of those for the comparable 1974

The weather scene today is hardly exciting;
mostly cloudy skies and a 30 per cent chance
of thunderstorms may spoil your outdoor ac-
tivities. High temperatures will reach the
