Walla Walla Union-Bulletin (Newspaper) - January 9, 1977, Walla Walla, Washington Walla Year Sunday January 25 Cents Mondale to carry Carter message abroad PLAINS Ga AP elect Carter said Saturday he will send Vice President-elect Mondale on a trip to Europe and Japan the first week of the Carter administration The President-elect said he himself probably will attend an economic summit meeting of the world's in- democracies this year probably in late May or June Carter also said he likely will meet with Soviet party leader Leonid Brezhnev sometime before next fall and hopes by that time to have achieved substantial progress on a new strategic arms limitation treaty On another subject Carter said he has every hope that tax rebate checks a key element of his plan to stimulate the lagging economy will be sent to millions of taxpayers by Alaska can buy back oil leases JUNEAU Alaska Oil Co of California has agreed to sell back its Bay oil and gas leases to the state for million Gov Jay Hammond announced Saturday Although the agreement calls for Standard to receive million more for the leases than the firm paid for them in 1973 Hammond said the deal does not represent a profit for the big oil company If approved by the legislature the deal would climax a long-standing political and environmental battle over the leases which were sold by the administration of former Gov William Egan without public hearings I was convinced that the leases should not have been issued in this particular area which is so rich in marine Hammond told a news conference There are many places where oil exploration in this state can proceed without con- but this is one area in which our renewable resources should receive the most stringent tion Hammond said he will seek a million appropriation from the coming legislature to cover a little more than half of the cost of the back deal early spring Carter said he still intends to minimize his own travel in the first year of his administration but would make an exception for the economic summit Carter talked to reporters at a chilly outdoor news conference on the lawn of his home I've asked Sen Mondale to go to West Germany to France to Great Britain to the European Community headquarters in Brussels and also to Carter said He said arrangements for the trip already have been made and that he will speak with the prime ministers or leaders of those nations by telephone sometime next week He said the purpose of the Mondale trip is to let America's closest allies know in some detail what I and the United States Congress propose to do about the stimulation of our economy In addition to that he will explore with them better means by which we might coordinate our NATO policies deal with the problems of the in- creased oil prices and also share with them some of our potential plans at that point for helping to resolve the potential problems surrounding Cyprus and Turkey and Greece the Middle East and of course the ern Africa question In the latter case Carter said that the United States plans to play a supportive role and will not pre-empt the leadership position taken by the government of Great Britain Mondale later issued a statement from his Washington office ex- pressing pleasure with the ment from Carter He said the trip will allow the new administration to consult closely with allies to exchange views with them and to prepare for a possible economic summit Finally I expect this trip to provide an opportunity for a frank exchange of viewpoints in other vital areas including East-West relations the European Community and the NATO alliance the Middle East and Cyprus the world energy situation and various trade and monetary Mondale said Carter said he himself probably will meet with the leaders of the nations Mondale will visit later in the year probably in the framework of an economic summit meeting He expressed the hope that other meetings with foreign leaders during his administration's first year take place in the United States Carter said he has exchanged with President Valery Giscard d'Estaing of France about the timing of an economic summit The meeting is expected to be held in Japan Carter said Mondale will be his personal emissary As a means of getting acquainted with them letting them know in some detail the hopes of tration in international matters particularly relating to tension in world trouble spots I think Sen Mondale can do as good a job on his first trip as I could do Carter said He said the Mondale trip will be just the first in a series to be made early this year by other members of the administration On Friday Carter and key congressional Democrats proposed a two-year program to stimulate the economy through jobs and public works programs a permanent tax cut and a one-shot tax rebate that could give individual taxpayers up to A reporter asked Carter about reports that Congress might not be able to act on the rebate portion of the plan for several months I would hope the information from is Carter said I don't foresee any difficulty in getting the rebate checks out very said Related stories page 25 Downhill tubing Jim Parsons 7 gets some help

Milton-Freewater Strohmaier sees nothing personal in appointment by Ray Of The Union Bulletin It would be difficult for anyone to say Gary appointment last week to head the Washington Department of Agriculture was a return of a personal favor More correctly Dixy Lee Ray probably appointed the Touchet wheat producer because she feels he is the most qualified person for the job The Strohmaier says he didn't even know Miss Ray until he met her briefly when she was in Walla Walla last October We talked for about two he says And being director of the agriculture department was the farthest thing from mind at that time because he was busy with his own bid to win a State Senate seat in a race with Jeannette Hayner His dreams fizzled following the November election when he was defeated not over- but by a mere 543 votes by Mrs Hayner It wasn't until more than a month after the election that Strohmaier started thinking he could serve well as the state's director of agriculture When I ran for the Senate people would ask me Why go through all this My answer to that was I liked to be involved I like to get things done The desire for involvement was the reason Strohmaier decided to sit inside

letter and a page resume to Miss Ray seeking the position of agriculture director He got to know the upcoming governor a little better last Monday during an interview in her office at Olympia It was more of a casual con- versation than an Strohmaier recalls Her first comment to me Gary I want you to know it is my opinion that the department of agriculture is one of the more im- portant departments in the State of He said Miss Ray told him she thinks there is a lot of for further expansion of the state's largest industry She's going to be deeply dedicated to agriculture Strohmaier a father of five says he thinks Miss Ray chose him because of a combination of his past activities not necessarily because he has all the answers to the problems of agriculture That experience includes being an assistant to both U.S Rep Mike McCormick and Rep Thomas Foley now chairman of the House Agriculture Committee In addition Strohmaier has served as president of the Washington Association of Wheat Growers a member of President Johnson's advisory committee for wheat and feed grains and he belonged to the Partners of Alliance a self-help partnership between Washington and Ecuador Strohmaier says he sees his primary job as head of the ment as an administrator of the laws of Washington as they pertain to the agriculture industry He sees his first big job as director as one of making a speedy and transition between outgoing director Stewart Bledsoe and himself The first thing I want to determine is if the department is efficient and highly ethical If it's not meeting any of those then I'll make the necessary changes Strohmaier says he will also make an effort to bind people in the urban areas of Washington with those in the rural areas Farmers are consumers just like the people in urban areas Many times in the urban areas seem to feel the farmer is not a consumer I'd like to emphasize the fact it cost a farmer just as much for a dozen eggs as it does the engineer at Boeing Strohmaier admits it will be an impossible job to solve all the problems of agriculture Farmers have had problems ideas and interest for years and years and years They're going to continue to have problems It's a growing industry and we're still suffering growing pains On other subjects Strohmaier much government control of Iff I TOUCHET WN Gary Strohmaier at Touchet farm in warmer weather

should not be the decision of any department on the administrative level of state government Neighbors say accused spy didn't hide love for Russia A former Russian merchant seaman who told his New
