Udall said he thinks he has a chance to top the field punself but insisted that his -khowmg will be a plus so long as he finishes "ahead of the other progressive candidates." In television interviews and at rallies and receptions from Boston to Springfield, six candi- dates were at work, in a race so divided that a relative handful of votes could juggle the order of finish. Former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter, fiontrunner among Democrats by virtue of his New Hampshire primary victory, al- ready has wrapped" up his Mas- sachusetts campaign, with Democratic oddsmakers gener- ally agreed that he probably will run near the top of the field here. Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama was staging the last of 17 campaign rallies Monday night in Boston, and his pri- mary strength was a major im- ponderable, particularly in a city torn by controversy over the busing of school children for racial integration. "He's a factor; he will distort the results in Udall said on the CBS-TV pro- gram "Face the Nation." Shriver and Pennsylvania Gov. Milton J. Shapp shared the television cameras, while former Oklahoma Sen Fred R. Harris was campaigning in Somerville. near Boston, and Chicopee in western Massachu- setts Shapp said whatever his showing it will be better than anyone could have expected of a candidate who came to Mas- sachusetts virtually unknown by the voters. "Actually. I can't lose in Mf-ssachusefts." he said Shriver said he is in the pres- idential campaign to stay, "and we're going to win on Tues- day." With his wife, the former Eunice Kennedv, Shriver held a Family Day rally at Faneuil Hall, emphasizing his tie to the biggest Democratic name in Massachusetts. Oasar Chavez, president of the United Farm Workers Un- ion, also appeared with Shriver. Vermont also holds its pri- mary on Tuesday, with Carter. Harris and Shriver entered President Ford is unopposed on the Republican ballot there. Ford and Ronald Reagan both are on the Massachusetts bal- lot, but neither has campaigned here.

He did not sa> when it was taken, who did the polling, or how many voters were sur- "Our poll, the last poll we" had. showed that we had a good lead he said Jackson also looked for a lift from the endorsement of Daniel P Moynihan. the former United Nations ambassador, which was to be promoted in an election-eve advertising blitz PHIUDflPHM PROVIDENCE SALT UKf By Most Of Candidates Busing Issue Food Price Decline Seen BOSTON (AP) About demonstrators marched peace- fully around South Boston High School on Sunday to underscore an issue that most major candi- dates in the state's upcoming presidential primary have cho- sen to ignore: busing school children for racial integration. As South Boston demon- strate called for an end to busing, one of the candidates, Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana, said in a television panel ap- pearance in suburban Need- ham: "If I were president. I wouldn't be running against black school children or trying to run against yellow school buses He said he supports busing as a last resort to achieve public school integration, but his com- ment came in response to a question. Bayh and other entrants of the Massachusetts race have generally failed to address the issue of school busing a con- troversial one in the state's largest city. Only Alabama Gov George C Wallace, who has opened a campaign office in South Bos- ton, and Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington are overtly wooing opponents of busing. The rest of the Democrats will answer questions on the busing issue, but rarely bnngjt up themselves. They" are re- signed, for the most part, to writing off that constituency, the size of which is an impon- derable in the election. "To be pragmatic, I don't ex- pect a groundswell of support in South Boston for Sen. Bayh." said Jack Walsh. Bayh's state coordinator. "People there are paying more attention to busing than to presidential politics." South Boston "has come to symbolize the city's opposition, sometimes violent, to city-wide federal court-ordered busing for school desegregation. But other neighborhoods in the city- are just as passionately op- posed to it. Wallace, who polled 7.4 per cent of the state primary vote in 1972 before court-ordered busing, has come to Massachu- setts this year searching for re- spectability. using antibusing sentiment "as his calling card He is given a good chance of winning the contest this year and the hot busing issue is con- sidered one reason why- Wallace is the only major Democratic candidate who backs a constitutional amend- ment against busing. Jackson is pushing legislation making busing orders more difficult to obtain and giving federal aid to cities under busing orders Both Bayh and Rep. Morris K. Udall, each trying to emerge- as the leading liberal candi- date, say they favor busing as a last resort, if" all oilier efforts to create quality integrated education fail. And former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter, the frontrunner after his 30 per cent ictory in the first primary in New Hampshire last week, calls for voluntary busing when possible and criticizes Boston's lack of black leadership in the school svstem. Bj LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Another round of declines in _ the price of butter and eggs I helped consumers at the super- I market during February, an Associated Press market- basket survey shows. But grocery costs at the start of March remained almost 30 per cent higher than they were three years ago. The Associated Press drew up a random list of 15 com- monly purchased food and non- food items, checked the price at one supermarket in each of 13 on March and has rechecked on or about the start of each succeeding month. The latest survey showed a continuation of the encouraging price drops that occurred in January. The marketbasket total at the checklist store was down dur- ing February in 12 of the cities surveyed, with an average drop of 2 per cent. The only m- i crease was in Seattle where the 11 total at the checklist store went up 2.2 per cent. I Comparing current prices i with those at the start of the I the AP found the mar- I! ketbasket total had declined at I: the checklist store in every city, down an average of just over 4 per cent. On the gloomy side, however, I1 the survey showed that the total at the checklist store increased by an average 29 per cent from March 1. 1973 until now, a jump of about 10 per cent a year. Most of the increase came in the first two years when food prices soared "The U.G Depart- ment of Agriculture has report ed that food prices rose 14.5 per cent in 1973 and again in 1974. Last year, by contrast, food prices went up 8.5 per cent, ac- cording to the USDA. The department has pre- dicted that food prices will rise by about 1 per cent in each of the first two quarters of 1976. What happens after that de- pends partly on the size of grain harvests, but analysts say the overall increase could be held to under 5 per cent. The moderating trend is ap- parent elsewhere. The Con- sumer Price Index showed food prices declined in January for the First time in five months. And the AP survey showed the marketbasket total at the checklist store dropped in the year ended Feb. 29 in 11 of the cities surveyed. Much of the de- crease was due to falling sugar prices. The savings at the dairy counter were most apparent during February. The price of a pound of butter dropped in eight cities last month 'after declining in nine cities during January. Medium eggs, which declined at the checklist store in 10 cities dur- ing January, dropped again during February in 12 cities. The only increase was at the checklist store in Seattle where the price had been an unusually low 45 cents a dozen and rose to 55 cents. There were no other clear-cut trends during the month. No item was up in more than five cities Pork chops dropped slightly in several areas, reced- ing from peak levels caused by production cutbacks Alleged Spy Takes Life Security Increased In Lebanese Cities BEIRUT.

The new security measures were launched as Lebanese pol- iticians journeyed to Damascus to consult on Syria's suspended mediation on forming a nation- o! union government to settle Lebanon's civil war. Newspaper columnists here attributed the recent lawless- ness to delays in organizing a national reconciliation govern- ment to replace the six-man cabinet of Moslem Premier Rashid Karami. The commission spokesman said Lebanese troops were tak- ing over police functions in Bei- rut's Christian sector and dis- banding security squads for- med by right-wing Christian mi- litias." The armistice commission has been given the power to use Lebanese and Palestinian, armed forces "in any way it deems fit to re-establish law and order and cope with any cease-fire violations the spokesman said. The decision to give the com- mission extra powers to handle the country's securi'y was tak- en jointly by Premier Karami and Christian President Sulei- man Franjieh, he added. NORMAN REES Defense To Close Its Case SAN FRANCISCO (AP) One of Patricia Hearst's law- yers says the defense will rest Monday and predicts that her bank robbery case could go to the jury by Thursday "Depending on what the pros- ecution does. I expect the case to go to the jury by Thursday." Al Johnson said in an interview- Sun day. "We haven't ruled out the possibility of Patty taking the stand Johnson said in response to a question. "But I can't imagine circumstances which would bring her back U.S. Atty. James L Brown- ing Jr. has hinted he might have a surprise rebuttal wit- ness and has said "something is in the wind." But the tall, easy- mannered prosecutor is playing close to the vest enter- ing" the sixth and perhaps final week of the celebrated bank robbery trial. Johnson also was cautious not to tip his final hand. However, he said that Dr. Margaret Thaler Singer, a clinical psychologist from Berkeley, would be called to testify Mondav. Johnson said he doesn't know- how long closing arguments will take, but said he expects his partner, the stylish Boston barrister F Lee Bailey, to handle that chore for the de- fense. At, though warming up for this week's climax. Bailey ap- peared Saturday before 400 stu- dents at Stanford University Law School. He restated a number of key defense con- tentions including one that Miss Hearst never became the revo- lutionary Tania. nor a convert to the terrorist Symbionese Lib- eration Army which kidnaped her Feb. 4. 1974 "If that had in fact occurred, we would be trying Tania, not Patty Hearst, and she would be doing just what Emily Harris told her to do jumping up and down and calling the judge a he said. "If I been confronted with a flaming revo- lutionary. I probably would have turned the case down." SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) A former Mobil Oil Co. engineer who reportedly sold important oil industry know-how to the Soviet Union before turning double agent for the FBI died Sunday of what authorities said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy was begun to determine the cause of death. Norman John Rees, 69, admitted accepting money for information he gave to Soviet in- telligence agents and said that from 1971 to 1975 he acted as a double agent for the FBI. ac- cording to a published interview. His work was considered so important that the Kremlin gave him a medal, according to the interview published in the Dallas Times Herald. Rees said in the interview that he agreed to work as a double agent in 1971 when he was confronted by the FBI. and continued in that capacity until 1975 He continued to meet Soviet contacts at FBI instructions, allowing the agency to observe and identify a number of Soviet intelligence officers, he said. "Jesus Christ, that is said Rees' son. John Warren Rees of Ashfield, Mass. He said his family knew nothing of his father's alleged connections with either the Soviet Union or the FBI. The son spoke to reporters outside the Rees home in Heritage Village, a retirement community in this town north of New Haven The son said he had been comforting his mother who also was unaware of her husband's alleged activity, and believed he killed himself because of an'illness. "She thought it was on account of his illness that he did this." "I just told her there's a story in the newspaper and she's acting like it's unreal." said the son. a bearded 31-year-old junior high school science teacher who was summoned by a neighbor. The Dallas Times Herald issued a statement Sunday saying: "Norman Rees requested on several oc- casions that the Dallas Times Herald withhold publication of the story and refrain from identifying him. We did not feel that we could repress the story and proceeded with publication." The Times Herald, which published the copyright story in its Sunday editions, quoted Rees as saying his most significant industrial espionage act was the passing in 1950 of a Mobil design for a newly developed catalytic cracking converter. He won a Soviet medal for that act. he said. Mobil had no immediate comment The converter, now a standard of the in- dustry, increases the percentage of gasoline that can be derived from crude oil The paper also quoted an "intelligence source" as saying that Rees was "the single most important individual in the development of the Russian oil and gas industry during the relevant period (1945-1960) "FBI director Clarence Kelley confirmed that the FBI was aware of Norman Rees contacts with foreign officials in the U S and had in fact inteniewed Rees on a number of occasions concerning these an FBI spokesman said. "Mr. Kelley stated that the FBI would be unable to make additional comment on a matter related to foreign intelligence activities in this country." the spokesman added Saturday. When "contacted Sunday the agency said it would stand on its Saturday statement. It was not immediately clear what law or laws would apply to what Rees said he did. An FBI spokesman in Washington, while not com- menting on the Roes' case, said spying gener- ally falls in one of two categories: In instances where no classified information is involved, espionage statutes do not apply: in cases of industrial espionage, the Foreign Agents Registration Act would normally apply The Dallas Times Herald reported that the Sicilian-born Rees told the paper that he "was a Communist sympathizer" during World War II when the United States and Russia were allies and began helping the Soviets and "just got out Fencing Ring Uncovered WASHINGTON (AP) Don- ald E Robinson Jr.. assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, has been arrested on bribery charges along with over 100 other persons arrested in connection with an under- cover fencing operation.

(AP) Presi- dent Ford said Sunday he is certain" he will win the Florida primary March 9 and, if he wins big, Ronald Reagan's supporters "ought to know they can't win, period." Ford made the optimistic statement to a group of Presi- dent Ford Committee workeis in Tampa as he completed a two-day campaign swing through Florida and prepared to fly back to Washington. After addressing a crowd of 8.000 at a building complex in Tampa, Ford made a brief stop at the Ford Committee recep- tion. "1 thought that before we came down here this time that we had this he said "Now I know more than ever that we have it. "I am absolutely certain we are going to the Presi- dent stated. "Florida is really the kev. If we can win and win big in Flor- ida they (Reagan supporters) ought to know they can't win, period." He said his narrow victory over Reagan in the New Hamp- shire primary last Tuesday us the springboard we needed." He forecast victories in the Massachusetts and Vermont primaries next Tuesday. Both, he and Reagan are entered in Massachusetts, but neither campaigned there. Reagan did not enter the Ver- mont primary. The weekend trip to Florida was Ford's second campaign foray into the Sunshine State in two weeks. Speaking at a Shnners picnic in Sarasota, Ford said he was the presidential candidate with the experience and the moder- ate philosophy to run the gov- ernment for the next four years and anything else would be bad for the country. "1 happen to think it's an ad- vantage, rather than a handi- cap, for a person to have some experience in his chosen field, and I think on-the-job ex- perience is the very best kind." Ford said Sunday's schedule included two public speeches and a series of informal meetings j. with Florida before his return to Washing- ton. The President said he had been in public service for 29 years as a member of Con- gress, vice president and Presi- dent, and lie said in the last 19 months he had stopped runa- way inflation and eased inter- national tensions. "As you know, I'm entering every one of the presidential primaries this Ford said. "I want the people of ev- ery state to take a close look at my record, and at my goals for America's future.'"
