The pact was signed As an executive agreement rather than a treaty which would have required Senate ratification an Lith hour addition to Bargaining terms stemming from the huge Grain Deal held up final signing of the agreement which had been under negotiation for most of this year. The billion dollars Worth of soviet Grain buying from the United states has driven up world freight rates sharply. Administration officials already accused by some with a Quot Giveaway on the Grain Deal wanted to revise the maritime pact so Taxpayers subsidies would not be helping the soviets. Secretary of Commerce Peter g. Peterson reported the soviets who have been anxious to get the Wheat agreed to up their share of the higher Shipping costs.

Quot i am Happy they have worked out an in a news conference Peterson said Quot i done to see How anybody can fairly say we have been snookered on this the Commerce chief called the pact Quot an in dispensable first step in beginning of a new Era of Commerce with the soviet Quot we appreciate the cooperative attitude of the soviet Union in helping us share costs in what clearly is an unprecedented situation a he said. By the end of this year Peterson said he expects the United states and the soviet Union to have concluded a Broad Trade agreement. The third economic Accord in the works a settlement of soviet lend lease debts is reported near completion. Newsmen were told no russian merchant vessels have called at East coast and Gulf ports since 1963 and that no Ameri Ltd merchantmen Are engaged in Trade with the soviet Union. Under the new agreement which is to take effect next Jan. I the amount of Advance notice that vessels of each country must provide before entering 40 ports of each has been reduced to four Days. Previously the United states required a 14-Day Advance notice on soviet ships and the soviets had a 30-Day Advance no Tice Rule for american vessels. Peterson gave this picture of the situation on . Subsidies which Ore aimed Al compensating american vessels for the difference Between their higher costs and the world Market rates the current Government subsidy to american vessels for Surplus Grain shipments abroad amounts to about $19 a ton Negotiators originally agreed with the soviets to Supply that portion of the Grain going to the soviet Union on american ships at a freight rate of $8.05 a ton. At the time that was negotiated the world Market rates were much lower around $6 a ton. So the soviets were agreeing to pay a couple dollars a ton extra for the american shipping costs. After the Grain Deal the world shipping rates jumped to $9 a ton Early this month. U the $8 05 rate had been left untouched the soviets would have benefited then from a lower than Market rate thanks to a Subsidy. The soviets agreed to pay a higher rate when the world Price goes to $9 a ton or above. This rate on the Grain carried by Vessels will be to per cent above whatever is the current Market rate. Thus with the going rate at $9, the soviets would pay $9 90. Aunt sue is 102 today a wire photo old hands learning How to use Pencil by John Van Gieson associated Pratt writer two egg Fla.
