Canadian sales benefit Japan switches wheat buying policy TOKYO (Rcuter) Japan has been switching part of its wheat purchases to Canada and Australia because of the United States West Coast dock strike, a food agency spokesman said today. Tlie spokesman said the pol- icy will be continued and ex- panded if the strike becomes protracted and if worker's in U.S. ports along the Gulf of Mexico and on the east coast go on strike when labor contracts end Sept. 30. He said Japan had built a suf- ficient stockpile of wheat in an- t'-inition of the U.S. strike, but had been makina some emer- gency imports from Gulf ports as well as Canada and Australia to replenish the stockpile. The food agency buys most of Japan's wheat imports through its weekly tenders. These emergency imports are known lo include tons of Australian wheat, tons of Canadian wheat, and Ions ol American wheat from Gulf ports. The agency has already in- vited offer's of tons of wheat for October shipments at weekly tenders starting Wednes- day. The agency spokesman said he did not know how much American wheat would be of- fered at these tenders from west coast or Gulf ports. Any shortfalls in offers of American wheat will have to be covered again with emergency imports from Canada and Aus- tralia, he said.

It has given the Russians a big voice in the area, but it hasn't done the Arab Commun- ists aoy good. For 15 years the Soviet Union has been the main supplier of arms to many Arab slates. Thousands of Soviet technicians, army officers and diplomats roam about freely in some Arab countries. The Soviets have undertaken mammoth construction schemes in Egypt and Syria. Egypt's bil- lion-dollar Aswan High Dam, its near-billion-dollar iron-and-stecl project at Helwan are exam- ples. The Soviets have gained strong footholds in the Middle East and at the northern gates of the African continent. But there is a growing trend in Hie Middle East toward rejecting! local Communists, their ideology as well as their physical pres- ence. The 74-hour Communist coup in Sudan last month aroused so much resentment in Egypt and Libya that vigorous efforts were quickly mobilized to quench it. After Maj.-Gen. Jaafar el-Ni-l meiri was restored to power, he ordered a ruthless hunt for all Communists in his country. FAlLUltE WEAKENS Sudan's Communist parly, al- though officially banned, counted more than follow- ers and was considered the largest and best organized in Africa and the Middle East. The failure of the coup has reduced its strength substantially. El-Nimeiri's crackdown o n the Communists and his execu- tion of the Sudanese party's to leaders angered Moscow, which attacked el-Nimciri violently in its newspapers. Ef-Nimciri ex- pelled Soviet, and Bulgarian dip- lomats Iroir. his country, re- called his ambassador to the two Communist countries and Air force returns to Glasgow base GLASGOW, Mont. The U.S. air force will start using the large air base here again. When it was "deactivated" three years ago, the mil- lion base was the most modern in the nation with a population of Glasgow is in northeastern Montana, about 200 miles south- east of Medicine Hat. B-52 bombers and force tankers will use the base on a tegic Air keeps nuclear armed bombers in the air at all times, wiil use this and other bases as satellite faciMties, to disperse whatever planes are on the grovnd. Two hundred men Mill be stationed here when the new plan is operative next spring. Meanwhile, base facilities are sent his defence minister to Pe- king to discuss economic and military iad, previously sup- plied by Moscow. At the onset of the coup, the Soviet ambassador to Egypt, VJadimir Vinogradov, was re- ported to have called on Presi- dent Anwar Sadat and urged him to support the rebels. Sadat is said lo have reacted angrily telling the ambassador he could never do so. Hours later, Boris Pono- marcv, a secretary of the Soviet Communist party, met Sadat in Cairo and again appealed for support for Hie coup. Mormed sources say Sadat replied tiiat communism could never be ac- cepted in the Arab world, and he would fight it unflinchingly. Because its stakes in the Arab world arc high, the Soviet Union seems to have toned down at- tacks on el-Nimeiri and pres- sure on Sadat, and decided to drift with the Arab currents for the moment. Experienced ob- servers of Commvnist trends in being used for more and more I the Middle East say Moscow civilian purposes.
