Grain dispute flares WASHINGTON (AP) A dis- agreement over the United Slates-Soviet maritime pact signed last month has stalled shipment of American grain aboard both U.S. and Russian ships, the Washington Post re- ports. The Post said today that the head of the Soviet ship-charter- ing agency has heen 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 what the Russians must pay lor grain to be car- ried in American ships. Under the agreement signed OL-L 14. the Russians arc to pay a minimum of 58.05 a ton c- i'-s market rate plus 10 per cent for a shipment of grain from an American Dort to a Soviet port. The Soviets insist the maket rate Is a ton while the Americans say it is closer to The Post said. The agreement says Ameri- can and Soviet ships are each to carry one third of the grain with the rest to be carried by third-country shins. So far Tha Post said, third-country ships have carried an estimated four million tons of grain. The Post said there is a tacit understanding that no Soviet flag vessels will can-y any grain until U.S. ships start car- rying it. Rail excursions make comeback sell out almost every seat NEW YORK (AP) The old- p fashioned railway excursion has not only been revived to the United States but it is growing like crazy. "We sell out almost every seat on every says a spokesman for Amtrak, the government's opeating arm for passenger rail traffic. "The only thing keeping us from selling more is a lack of care." 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 f 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- 1 tion with a regular tour firm. The tour firms arrange for meals, hotels and sightseeing buses, while Amtrak furnishes the trains. The tours are sold for an all-inclusive price which makes 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 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 tour to Florida, including a rental car for seven days. The compact car is included with the purchase of three train tick- ets, while four tickets will get a full-size car for the same one- week period. 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 excur- 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 for FIRST WOMAN TO PRESIDE-Madame Jeanne Martin Cisse of Guinea, the firil woman to preside over the Unit- ed Notions Security Council, assumes her position for the first time.
