improved economy-
WASHINGTON (A) - The government said yesterday its in-
dex of leading business indicators was up 1.9 per cent in June,
a big increase that points to a solid improvement in the economy
in months ahead.
The indicators index now has increased for four consecutive
months and it stood at 98.3 in June, the highest since last October
when it was 100.3.
IN ANOTHER report on the economy, the Commerce Depart-
ment said the nation had a record merchandise trade surplus in
the second quarter of 3.5 billion and also a record in the first six
months of nearly $5.5 billion.
The surplus was attributed to a steep decline in imports, al-
though exports also fell. Imports were off in the second quarter
by $3 billion to a total of $22.3 billion, while exports fell $1.4 bil-
lion to a total.of $25.8 billion.
Agricuture Secretary Earl Butz said, 'meanwhile, ,that the
value of U. S. farm exports in the fiscal year ended June 30 rose
to a record 21.6 billion. He said agriculture exports exceeded im-
ports ty $12 billion.

He warned that provisions of

tion in Europe."
"The United States will par-
ticipate fully in this process,
Ford said.
HE ARRIVED from Krakow,
Poland, where he was warmly
greeted by a crowd of about

70,000. He paid a 27-hour visit
to Poland which included a trip
to the former Nazi death camp

a "dedicated pursuit of peace."

after an overnight train ride
from Moscow. He looked fit af-

the large crowd of reporters and
photographers on hand. But he
issued no formal statement.
President Tito of Yugoslavia,
whose Communist nation is not
a member of the Soviet blot,
praised the conference on his
arrival as a "unique gathering
in European history."
