Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Grain dispute flares WASHINGTON (AP) A dis- agreement over the United Slates-Soviet ma-ilimc pacl signed last month has stalled shipment of American grain ahoard both U.S. and Russian ships, the Washington Post re- ports. The Post said today that the head of the Soviet ship-charter- ing aguncy has been trying to settle the disagreement. While grain from the 17-mil- lion-ton deal piles up at U.S. grain elevators and port facil- ities, The Post says officials disagree on whal the Russians must pay for grain to be car- ried in American ships. Under the agreement signed OL-L 14. Ins Russians arc to pay a minimum of S8.05 a Ion t I -3 market rate plus 10 per cent for a shipment of grain from an Ameiican norl to a Soviet port. The Soviets insist the maket rate Is a Ion while tbe Americans say it is closer to The Post said. The ag-eemenl says Ameri- can and Soviel ships are each lo carry one third of the grain v.ith the rest lo be carried by third-country shins. So far Ths Post said, third-country ships have carried an estimated tour million tons of grain. The Post said there is a tacit understanding that no Soviet Tag vessels will cany any grain until U.S. ships start car- rying it.

"We sell oul almost every seat on every says i spokesman for Amtrak, Ihe government's opeating arm for passenger rail traffic. "The only thing keeping us from selling more is a lack of cars." Amtrak offers a wide variety of tours, from a one-day jaunt New York to Washington for half the usual fare to a 15-day Chicago-Los Angeles trip. The western one has a return via San Francisco and Reno and costs about 20 per cent less than the regular rail fare. The longer tours are generally offered by Amtrak in co-opera- tion with a regular tour firm. The tour firms arrange for meals, hotels and sightseeing buses, while Amtrak furnishes j the trains. The tours are sold for an all-inclusive price which Stabs for pennies BOSTON (AP) Gerald Sla- ter, 20, of Brookline, was held in lieu of bail Thursday on charges of stabbing and rob- bing a girl of 35 cents in Bos- ton's Back Bay section. make: It difficult to say Just how much is for rail passage and how much for the other fea- tures. COSTS VARY However, one recent traveller discovered that he could spend for two people for a trip from New York to Los Angeles and back on the regular trains. But a longer trip, fares only, on an excursion ticket was only S584 for two. This called for a nine-day trip via Chicago, Den- ver, San Francisco and Los An- geles but did not include hotels and meals along the way. Another Amtrak innovation is a rail '.our to Florida, including a rental car for seven days.

The car can be picked up at any of five Florida cities and returned at any of the others. TRAFFIC IS STEADY Unlike the old railway sions, many of the longer ones can be started on any day. There is enough traffic so a traveller will always find some other tour passengers on the train, enough of them to justify the buses and escorted sight- seeing tours at stopping places. However, some of the family plans to Florida must be used only during the week, to take advantage of the lower price lor CURRIE'S FINE FOODS OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK TO P.M. 1516 9th Ave. S.
