WASHINGTON (A1J) The Soviet Union will be allowed lo buy 2.2 million Ions of U. S. grain but will make no addi- tional purchases during the cur- rent crop year, Treasury Secrc- lary Simon announced Satur- day. The Soviels will be allowed to acquire one million tons of corn .and 1.2 million tons of vvhuil, Simon said. President Ford on Oct. 5 halt- ed a planned shipment of a total 3.2 million tons of U. S. grain, including 2.3 million tons of corn and tons of wheat. Midwest Weather The President acted in (he face of smaller U. S. harvests primarily brought on by ad- verse Midwest weather condi- tions in the form of spring floods, summer drouths and au- lumn freezes. Following the shipment, hall, Simon went lo Moscow on Oct. 12 to discuss His grain situation with Soviet leaders. Simon said Saturday the partial resumption U. S. grain sales resulted Irom those discussions. Simon's announcement said, "The Soviet Union also agreed lo make no further purchases in the U. S. market this crop year, which ends next summer. Fur- ther the Soviet Union agreed to work with the U. S. toward dev- elopment of a supply-demand data system for grains." Treasury officials said such a system would consist of an ex- change of information between Ihe U. S and Russia about prc- idieted crop harvests and anlici- paled grain demands. .Major Firms The grain sale aborted earlier (his month had been planned by Continental Grain Co. of New York and Cook industries, Inc.
