Pindling, shown with his wife, is the first black prime minister in the history of the Bahamas, a 700-island chain arching across the Atlantic between Flor- ida and Haiti. The Independent Commonwealth of the Bahamas is about to become an independent nation. It has a couple of items to attend to with the United States and Cuba before making its final break from Britain on July 10. Countryside travel curtailed By THEODORE SUABAO New York Times Service IVANOVO, U.S.S.R. Every year around this time, when melting snows begin to turn much of the Russian plain into a sea of mud, traffic in the countryside grinds to a vir- tual haJt. Out-of-the-way villages be- come isolated for weeks, chil- dren often cannot be transport- ed to rural district schools, and newspapers and magazines fail to reach village subscribers. In this textile manufactur- ing city, only 200 miles north- east of Moscow, the provincial government has just issued an order prohibiting all heavy truck traffic for a few weeks, beginning April 9. The order, which applies even to the best roads, is designed to keep pave- ments and other road surfaces from disintegrating under heavy loads during Uus spring season. Ivanovo province is heavily industrial and farming in the area's poor soil has historically played a secondary rote, so the disruption decreed in rural traf- fic is unlikely to be crucial. But in the main agricultural regions of the southern steppe, this lack of transportation becomes precisely at planting time when seed must be deliv- ered to farms and any delay may mean a decline in crop yields. The Soviet Union has never developed the reliable farm-to- market road system that went along with agricultural devel- opment of the American mid- dle west, and the absence of year-found transport links con- tinues to -take its toll in Russian farm performance. Local officials, asked about the road ordinance, said a sim- ilar order -was issued every spring in an effort to protect the road network against dam- age. In addition to probhibit- ing all traffic by trucks of three tons or more, it orders light- er trucks and buses to keep their maximum speed to 20 miles an hour.

Political parties received million from big firms OTTAWA (CP) Canada's major companies donated nearly mMon to political parties in 1970, and million of this came from foreign- owned firms. The information was given to New Democratic Leader David Lewis in reply to a written Commons question. The statis- tics cover only firms having as- sets of or sales of at least and cover only do- nations defined as taxable.

It's true you need space for the kids and the dogs and the groceries. But that doesn't mean you have to lug a giant station wagon around. With the rear seat down, the Volvo wagon has space in back for 67 cubic feet of kids, dogs and groceries. Or a 6-foot sofa. And space in front for a 6 husband. But outside, the wagon is exactly the same size as the sedan. (That's about 3 feet less to park than the giants. And three feet less to dent.) A sense of proportion is one of many sensible things about Vfolvo. Others include 4-wheel disc brakes. A rear-window wiper, washer and defroster. And rear doors with extra locks the kids can't open from inside, so you can keep your mind on the road instead of the back sea-. If all wagons were designed as sensibly as a maybe women drivers would have a better name.
