"We need a president and a secretary of agriculture who understand the problems of the family farmer and the consumer and if I am elected, we're going to have both. The peanut farmer from Plains, Ga., who is confident he has a strong chance of winning in President ForJs native Midwest, made Des Moines his last stop on a four-day campaign trip. Aides said he would try to capitalize on what he believes is significant discontent in the farm belt over Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz and the administration's farm program. He has attacked BuU as a supporter of big agricultural businesses, lacking un- derstanding and support for small far- mers. "We need to close the revolving door between the agriculture department and the large special Carter said. "If I am elected, we will make sure that our support prices are at least equal to the cost of production. That will not guarantee profit no real farmer wants that but it will give the determined farmer a chance to stay in business." The Democratic presidential nominee also attacked export embargos placed on agricultural products by the Nixon and Ford admlnstrations in the last three years, calling them "a record of un- paralleled incompetence. "It's not my idoa of a fair shake when the government promotes foreign sales and then cuts them off for political convenience. "It's not my idea of a fair shake when inside speculators, with special con- nections in the agriculture department, make windfall profits on grain deals while the producer himself sells at a loss." Carter had said Tuesday night when he met with representatives of two dozen national farm organizations that if elected president he would never authorize an embargo on foreign shipment of U.S. farm products. "Under my administration, if I'm elected, there will never be another em- bargo that singles out farm the former Georgia governor said during the meeting with representatives of such groups as the National Farmers Organization, Farmers Union, National Grange, American Farm Bureau and Nat ional Corn Growers Association. Embargoes on shipments of U.S. grain, particularly last October's embargo on shipments to Russia, have been a sore point with many farmers who claim they iosl money because of them. The ad- ministration has said that no farm sales ie ports and ships were tied up at the time of the em- bargoes. Carter also said that, if elected, he would do what he could to clean up what he called "the dirty situation" in the country's grain inspection system. An ongoing federal investigation of the grain export business in New Orleans has resulted in the conviction of more than 90 grain companies and individuals. After his arrival Tuesday evening. Carter spoke to a crowd of about persons who attended a rally on a farm near Des Moines. Saying he felt he had come home again. Carter reminded his audience that his victory in Iowa's Jan. 19 precinct caucuses had started the momentum that led to his nomination.

S. calls for punishment PANMUNJOM, Korea (AP) The United States today demanded that North Korea punish the soldiers who hacked to death two U.S. Army officers at the Panmunjom Truce Village a week ago. North Korea proposed physical separation between communist and allied guards at Panmunjora to prevent clashes like the fight in which the two Americans perished. The U.S.-led United Nations Command declared the separation proposal "may be a positive step" and will be studied in detail but said it meanwhile expects punishment of the North Koreans who killed the Americans in a dispute over pruning a tree. "I have called this meeting for one purpose to inform you that our side calls for punishment of those responsible for the murders of the two UNC U.S. Rear Admiral Mark P.

Ever since the truce was signed in 1953, guards from both sides have had free run of the joint'security area at Panmunjom, an area about 850 yards in diameter bisected by the military demarcation line between North and South Korea. Major General Han Ju-kyong, the chief N'orlh Korean delegate, proposed (hat in the future North Koreans stay north and the Americans and South Koreans stay south of the line, which also passes through the center of the conference room and across the table used for today's meeting.

Frudden, the chief t'NC delegate, said this was a positive step but still "your response is unsatisfactory." The allies, he said, demand concrete action including punishment of those responsible lor the killing and orders to North Korean troops against physical contact with, or obstructing the movement of allied guards. "The U..N. Command will study your proposal in detail concerning the JSA joint security area and provide our response when the study is theadmiral said. Tlie Korean general told liim, "we believe it is most reasonable to separate Ihe security personnel of both sides in this area with the military demarcation line between them so that they perform their guard duties in their respective areas only." Pentagon: U.S. help was too far away WASHINGTON (AP) The Pentagon says an armed U.S. serious conflict. reaction force normally posted about a mile south of the Korean demilitarized zone was too far away to rescue two American officers who were killed by North Korean guards last week. The disclosure came after Rep. John M. Murphy, D-N. Y., said three Army officers who left Korea recently "wereastounded to learn that the U.S. reaction force... did not come to the aid of the victims of the attack. The reaction force is usually armed with M16 rifles and Murphy said he was told. The Pentagon, meanwhile, said it was standing firm on rules permitting U.S. soldiers Inside the truce zone to shoot in self defense only as a last resort and only if a U.S. officer in charge orders them to do so "These procedures arc considered still the Pentagon said when asked about possible changes in the rules following the by axcswielding NorDi Koreans. Some defense officials indicated concern that any loosening of strict rules might increase the danger that even lesser harassment of Americans by North Koreans, such as reported pushing, shoving and spitting Incidents, might escalate into Murphy would not the three officers who told him aboul the reaction force. In a statement prepared for delivery on Ihe House floor Tuesday he said they also told him that U.S. troops who carry unloaded weapons inside the DMZ would be unable to obtain ammunition from a facility "well out of the area" in the event of a "Shootout at the site." In response to questions, tlie Pentagon said the armed reaction force normally is posted two kilometers south of tlie truce zone and that the Joint Security Area where UK killings occurred is in the middle of the two-and-a-half-mile DMZ. Officials calculated that the reaction force would have been about Iwo miles away and could not liave seen the Aug. 18 fighting. The officials said the attack lasted only a few minutes and the reaction force could not have reached the scene in time. The Pentagon did not say under wliat circumstances the force would react.

He blamed inconsistent tighl money policy under the Republicans for driving up interest rates, wiping out some businesses and slowing down others, and putting millions of people out of work. He said Carter would balance the money supply with federal spending policy as tools lo stimulate business and create jobs. Mondale said full employment would bring in an additional billion in income tax money and save money on less-needed food sUmps, welfare and unemployment insurance. That additional revenue, he said, would finance such Carter-Mondale programs as national health insurance, tax reform and belter housing Uut Mondale said full employment is a campaign pledge Ilial lie and Carter will keep. SEATTLE (AP) Republican vice presidential nominee Robert Dole campaigning on the heels of Jimmy Carter said he intends to spell out the Democratic presidential nominee's "mass of contradictions." Dole said he intends to campaign the next months emphasizing changes in Carter's political positions, but the Kansas senator said it would not be a personal attack. Dole said he would reply today to Car- ter's position on Vietnam war draft evaders when he addresses a national American Legion convention here. He said his position would be his personal view and not necessarily that of the Ford ad- ministration. Carter, appearing before the convention on Tuesday, said he would pardon, but not grant amnesty, to draft evaders if he is elected president. Hundreds of delegates hooted and shouted "No" while a coun- terdemonstration supporting his position broke out in the stands above the con- vention floor. Carter said that "for those who violated Selective Serevice laws, I intend to grant a blanket pardon." He continued, "Amnesty means what you did is right. A pardon means what you did right or wrong is forgiven. So pardon yes, amnesty no." Dole is a decorated World War II veteran who spent 39 months in an Army hospital recovering from .shrapnel wounds. He still does not hove the use of his right arm. Dole was asked at an airport news conference Tuesday night if his role in the campaign would be to act as "the heavy bitter" while Ford maintains a more aloof "presidential "Not Dole replied. "I'm not known as a hard hitter. I'm one who likes to point up differences, and there will be no personal attacks on anyone. "Mr. Carter is a mass of contradictions. We hope to spell those out to (lie American people. They're entitled lo know, and if lie doesn't want to tell them, I'll be happy to tell them." Dole said he was not deliberately following Carter around Uie nation. He arrived in Seattle seven hours after Carter left and moved into the same suite of rooms in Uie. hotel where Carter had stayed. Later today. Dole was to fly to Das Moines, where Carter was speaking at the Iowa Stale Fair. Dole plans to make an appearance at the fair tonight. Ford said conceding South, N.Y. VAIL, Colo.
