Newport Daily News (Newspaper) - October 21, 1974, Newport, Rhode Island 21 Newport, (R.I.) Doily Newt, Mondoy, Octobtr U.S. mulls grain sales for Indians WASHINGTON (AP) While cutting back grain sales to Rus- sia, the United States soon may provide grain to India under a new Food for Peace agreement. Andrew J. Mair, coordinator of Food for Peace in the State Department, said he is certain a grain agreement with India is coming up, but doesn't know how much the U.S. will supply. The agreement may be worked out during Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's visit to In- dia later this month. Calling the subject "a very sensitive thing with a top Agriculture Department of- ficial added: "We're reluctant to say that they have asked for aid because they are reluctant to say so." India could buy grain and other commodities and have as long a! 40 years to pay, with no payments for the first 10 years, under a Food for Peace agree- ment. The Soviet Union tried to buy 3.2 million tons of U.S. grain recently, but the shipment was halted by President Ford Oct. 5 because of smaller U.S. har- vests blamed on spring floods, summer droughts and autumn freezes. But Treasury Secretary Wil- liam E. Simon announced Sat- urday that the Soviets will be allowed to acquire one million tons of corn and 1.2 million tons of wheat. They agreed to make no further purchases in the U.S. market this crop year, which ends next summer. The Soviet Union has been a major foreign supplier of wheat to India the past year, providing more than 1.8 million metric tons of wheat, according to USDA figures. India's wheat production is down, with the crop last spring estimated at 22.5 million tons compared with 24.9 million in 1973. At the same time, the U.S. wheat reserve may be only 218 million bushels by next sum- mer, the lowest since 1948. India has not received Food for Peace aid since before its war with Pakistan almost three years ago. It got 1.5 million metric tons of wheat worth million under the last agreement, which expired June 30, 1971. India imported about 3.6 mil- lion metric tons of wheat during the 1973-74 fiscal year, including 1.5 million from the United States.

Worked 100 years (UPI) Soviet Union has announced that Zibida Sheidayeva (shown in photo made last May) has been awarded "Red Banner of Labor" for 100 years of work at the Kuba Rug Factory in Azerbaldzhan. Said to be 114 years old, Zibeida was cited by Presidium of Supreme Soviet for her productivity, according to Novosti Press Agency. Novosti says she still works as fast as her much younger colleagues, tying knots a day and making medium-sized rug in 20 to 23 days. Harvard pundit raps vast files on persons SOUTH KINGSTOWN, (AP) A Harvard University Law School professor has charged that the enormous amounts of personal data stored in computerized files subtley controls the behavior of in- dividuals and the exercise of constitutional rights. Arthur Miller, author of "As- sault on told a con- ference on privacy at the Uni- versity of Rhode Island that this data is creating a "record prison" of individuals who change their behavior to make the record look good. Miller argued Saturday that useless and inaccurate in- formation collected on innocent individuals without their knowledge can come back to haunt them. The National Crime Informa- tion Center in Washington gath- ers arrest data on every citizen accused of a crime. But over one-third of these records con- tain no information on the dis- position of these cases, he said. Miller has served on and tes- tified before several congres- sional subcommittees studying the questions of invasion of privacy. He said that in 1971 as a member of a subcommittee on constitutional rights, he heard testimony that a military in- telligence unit President John- son activated during the 1963 riots accumulated a file of sev- en million names. "All seven million of them couldn't be bomb he said. "Some were the SDS, the Weatherman, the klan. But those names were already on seven other files in Washing- ton."

Sokolosky said the Haddam plant was chosen for the tour because officials wanted "to show people what pressurized water reactors look like...this is what we propose for Charles- town." The company has suggested the construction of two, megawatt nuclear reactors at the former Naval Air Station in Charlestown.
