They said soybeans and corn were hit the hardest with damage also to tomatoes, Kentucky's tobacco crop and New York state grapes. The cold weather brought frost to states such as South Dakota as early as Sept. 3 and freezing was reported in late September in most of the northern Midwest. The result, officials say, was the destruction of crops such as corn and soybeans that are normally planted late and which in some areas were planted later than usual this year because of heavy spring rains. The only good news was a prediction of short-range benefits to beef consumers. Officials in Indiana es- timate the frost cost farmers there about million; in Wisconsin, officials said total crop damage for the year is million, much of it from the frost, but some of it from heavy spring rains; in Ohio, total damage was set at million for the year from drought, torrential rain and early frost. In other states, estimates were not yet available but of- ficials predicted the cost would be high. Walter Goeppinger, chairman of the Board of the National Corn Growers Association in Boone, Iowa, said Friday that American fanners will harvest less than 4.8 billion bushels of corn this year. The U.S. agriculture department predicted last spring a harvest of 6.1 billion bushels. Goeppinger predicted a short-term benefit to con- sumers. He said much of the damaged corn crop would be used for silage and fed to beef, causing a short-term increase in the beef supply.

Yes No DATE COURSE BEGINS Mideast peace talks threatened By GEORGE KITCHEN UNITED NATIONS (CP) A move by the Arab states to win UN recognition of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as the representative of the Pal- estinian people poses enor- mous complications for the aleady complex Mideast peace negotiations. It also threatens to under- mine the basic principle that the UN is an organization of sovereign states and that only sovereign states may hold membership and participate in UN debates. Nineteen Arab dan to introduce a resolution that would invite the PLO as "the" representative of the Palesti- nian people, to take part in a UN debate on question in Noven er. The Arabs claim tt have at least 70 ma- jority of the UN's 138 the invitation. The resolution would have the effect, so far as the UN is concerned, of recognizing the PLO, rather than Jordan, as the bargaining agent for the Arabs living on the Israeli occupied west bank of the Jordan River and in the Gaza strip, as well as other Palestinians scattered around the Arab world. Jordan says that she, not the PLO, speaks for the Palestin- ians. Many of her Arab neigh- bors obviously don't agree. Is- rael also says the Palestinian need can be met by negotia- tion with Jordan. The Arab move seems clearly aimed at setting a precedent for a claim for a seat for the PLO at the even- tual Middle East peace New network OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Radio Television Com- mission Friday approved an application from Alberta Educational Communications Corp. for a network licence to carry a one-hour program.

This would confront Israel with one more adversary with which she would have to negotiate. Egypt, Jordan and Syria al- ready are in the picture. The danger is that Israel would balk and declare the ne- gotiations ended, wrecking months of delicate diplomatic manoeuvring towards an eventual settlement. Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal Allon told the General Assembly in its general debate Thursday night that Israel refuses "to recognize the PLO and we will not recognize it because of its doctrines and of its deeds alike." The PLO, the source of much of the terror- ist activity against Is- real, has both hard- liners and moderates in its ranks. The hardliners would like to see the state of Israel driven into the sea; the moderates want a Palestinian homeland made up of the west bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza strip, with Jerusalem as the capital. CLAIM SOVEREIGNITY A number of Western nations, Canada and the United States among them, oppose the Arab move on a number of grounds, including that of sovereignity. UN membership always has been reserved for sovereign states and the privilege of ad- dressing plenary debates has been reserved to their representaives. Some in- dividual groups have appeared before UN committee hearings but only as wit- nesses. Diplomats express concern that if the PLO is given the right to join in the Palestine debate, the way will be opened for any similar organization at some future date to demand the same right. The result, they feel, is that the UN would degenerate into a sort of concert hall, where dis- sidents could join in debate with leaders of sovereign countries. Westerners also oppose the resolution on the grounds its acceptance would rejudge the question of which group or or- ganization might eventually represent the Palestinians in the final peace talks. The PLO already has a foot in the UN door. In Paris, the executive board of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization voted to invite the organization to its general conference Oct. 17. Canada and the U.S. dis- sented.
