How that money will be di.s- .ribuled was one of the major .opics of lalks between Mr. Lang and the Prairie agricul- ture ministers Tuesday. The ministers, Jack Messer of Saskatchewan, Sam Uskiw of Manitoba and Dr. Hugh Homer of Alberta, said they were anx- IS lo see the subsidy used as a jase for a grain-income stabili- zation program, They indicated lo reporters .hey were in general agreement :hat the money should be used for cereal grain producers other than just wheat farmers. Mr. Uskiw said his opinion is that an interim payment will be made shortly, and he said he hoped later payments will be made in a stabilizing that (he largest farmer does not necessarily receive the largest subsidy, and so that small farm- ers arc given appropriate aid. Mr. Messer said lie guessed that such an interim payment might be based on acreage, but added the desire is for the two-price system lo be paid out as some form of in- come stabilization. No official anouncement came out of the talks between the ministers. The sessions are held periodically to involve the provinces in grain policy-mnk- ing by sharing with them some- times-confidential information and hearing their opinions, Mr. Lang said.

But, they presumably com- plied Tuesday wilh a federal judge's order lo give the jury handwriting samples, since Uiere was no evidence of con- lempt proceedings being pre- pared against them. Tlie New York Times quotes sources as saying that Irving in- voked the Fifth Amendment guarantee against self-incnmi- nation and his wife used either the same guarantee or the privi- lege of a wile not lo testify against her husband in refusing to answer questions. It was the first jury appear- ance for Mrs. Irving, the ac- knowledged "Ilelga K. Hughes" who deposited in a Swiss bank three cheques totalling MnO.OM intended for Hughes, then later wilhdrcw the money. A third key witness, Irving's literary researcher, R I c li a r d Su.skind, also appeared briefly before Ihe grand jury and won a delay until Thursday to allow his lawyer a chance to familiar- ize himself wilh Ihe complex case. Suskind, who arrived in New York Monday from his home on Majorca, has sworn in a court affidavit that he wilnessed a meeting between Irving and a man he believed lo be Hughes. Irving claims he met the bil- lionaire recluse for a scries of secret interviews Ihal provided the material fo the book which McGaw-Hill Publishing Co. had intended to print. But in a telephone interview, a voice identified as Ihal of Hughes denied knowing Irving and denounced the book as a fake. Irving has said that one meet- ing with Hughes look place when he took a trip lo Mexico in Ihe company of Nina van Pal- landt, a Danish cabarel singer and neighbor of Ihe Irvings on Ihe island of Ibiza. Mrs. van Pallandl, who is scheduled to appear before Lhe grand jury Friday, lias said she was with Irving constantly dur- ing Lhe Irip exccpl for a two- honr period when he went to gel her an airline lickcl.
