The editorial in this month's Journal of the American Medi- cal Assn. blames the Food and Drug Administration for delay- ing approval of these drugs, even though they have been found safe and effective by the British. The editorial was written bv Cuba.

Fulbright, chairman of tin senate foreign relations commit tee, was defeated in a party primary earlier this year by Arkansas Gov. Dale Bumpers. Two years ago he tried, am failed, to reverse the isolation policy against Cuba. He realizes lie may fail again.

His let- er to Fulbright reluctantly ap- >roving a recent 10-day visit to Juba by committee staff direc- or Pat Holt reflects this atti- ude.

Forty-eight percent of Ameri- cans questioned in the most re- cent Gallup Poll believe the fed- eral government, rather than business or labor, is chiefly re- sponsible for inflation.
