Riley, Blouin Expound on Energy Crisis Last minute campaign activi- ties Saturday found candidates for the Second district congres- sional seat issuing statememts dealing with middlemen and the international energy crisis. State Sen. Tom Riley, Cedar Rapids Republican, declared that the farmer and consumer "appear to be victims of a shocking 'rip-off by the middle- men." State Sen. Michael Blouin, Du- buque Democrat, said congress must take the lead in devising long and short term strategies "to deal with the international energy crisis." Riley said recent federal sta- tistics show "there has been a two-cent per pound drop in the farm price received for dry navy beans, but an unexplained 33-cent per pound increase at the retail since October, 1973. "Sugar is another he said. "The farm price rose only 10-cents for a five-pound sack, while the retail price went up a staggering "The same situation exists ,vith regard to red meats and dairy products, although the margins are not as 'dramatic." Riley said he has sent U.S. Ally. Gen. William Saxbe a tele- gram commending him for or- dering an investigation into pos- sible price-fixing by middlemen. Blouin said in a statement hat "congress must be willing to coordinate a national energy policy which conserves what li- mited resources we have and distributes those resources equi- tably to all sectors of the econ- omy and all sections of the country." Any acceptable energy policy or the immediate and long- range future must include a re- turn to competition in the oil in- dustry, he said, as well as dev- elopment of conservation and recycling programs and a change in the American life- style.

They say they don't want to build false hopes by other na- tions thai the U.S. will agree to bankroll an international food welfare system. Food Reserves Instead, participants such as Ambassador Edwin Martin and Agriculture Secretary Butz say the emphasis at the meeting in Rome Nov. 5-16 should be on improving agriculture produc- tion in developing countries. Support will be given by the U.S. delegation to the idea of a system of nationally hold food reserves. H o w ever, Russian participation is regarded by some delegation sources us a key condition before such a sys- tem can actually function. U.S. officials say a stockpile of 30 million to GO million Ions of grain could be set up but details would have to be worked out. The meeting of aboul 130 na- tions was proposed a year ago by Secretary of State Kissinger to discuss ways of maintaining adequate world food supplies and to deal with hunger arising from natural disasters. Martin, a career diplomat who is organizing U.S. partici- pation in the conference, said [he Ford administration Car Entered f- Alvin C.

No Sightseeing For President On Japan Trip TOKYO (AP) President Ford will not sightsee in Tokyo on his trip to Japan later this because of recent demon- cliiK'd sharply in volume in the last two years. Kiicl of Life But Martin said world hunger probably will be a fact of life tor 10 years to come. "There now are million undernourished people in the world, and there is doubt-that will eliminate malnutrition in the next 10 he said. Our target should be to reduce it numerically." Some government officials planning the conference believe there has been a shift in empha- sis by the U.S. from help-now to help-tomorrow. They said this is in part because of a worsening outlook for U.S. farm production this year. However, these same adverse crop conditions, along with ris- ing prices, have made the de- veloping countries desperate for help now. India, Bangladesh and Central Africa are the immediate trou- ble spots. Good Harvests The conference was called at a time when we anticipated good food said How- ard Worthington, a deputy assis- tant secretary of the treasury. I don't think they had in mind that things were going to be even worse. "If we had a good crop this year, people would be concen- trating on how to help people feed themselves, and wouldn't be worrying about food he added. Martin said in an interview that the rising price of food has aggravated world starvation, which has always existed lo some degree. The increase in price cer- tainly affected the nutrition levels from what they were two years ago and it proba- bly means more people are dying because of increased sus- ceptibility to disease" and other hunger-related causes, he said. Serious Famine But Martin added he is op- timistic that the world will es- cape serious famine, "although there may be famine in a few spots." The administration has asked congress for billion for food aid in the current fiscal year, which will provide about the same quantity of food as last year. But the volume of food aid last year was the lowest since congress approved the U.S. Food for Peace law in 1354. While food aid has declined, U.S. agricultural commercial exports soared last year to billion, nearly double Ihe pre- vious year's value. Martin said that resulted from the increased commercial de- mand for U.S. food and the declining food surplus. ;lrations against his visit, the 'oreign ministry said Friday. But he will tour Kyoto, the an- cient capital and one of Japan's most beautiful spots. Left-wing groups have staged irolests since Ford's forthcom- ng visit was announced, and more demonstrations are ex- pected. In 1960, violent demon- strations by leftist students and union members forced cancella- ion of a visit by President isenhower, but the government expects no violence this lime. Ford will be (he first Ameri- can President to visit Japan. Announcing his schedule, the 'oreign ministry said he arrives n Tokyo the afternoon of Nov. 18 and will have an audience h Emperor Hirohilo and impress Nagako the morning of 19. He will see them again .hat night at a banquet given in lis honor by the emperor. The schedule calls for Ford lo lold talks wilh Prime Minisler 1'anaka Nov. 19 and 20.
