Surfing enthusiasts called the waves the best e protection for U.S. fanners power to control the main polluters Smog danger for the Dutch WASHINGTON (API An agriculture department trade expert says the 10-per-cent sup plcmentary duty on imports or- dered by President Nixon is of- fcrin; little protection lo Ameri- ran farmers. John .1. Hudson ot HIP foreign agricultural service says in a report that the duty must be i viewed in terms ot long-range j administration objectives for free world trade. "For Hudson said, "It should be clear that Ameri- can fanners cannot look upon the new import surcharge as a means of protection from for- eign competition." "For many of our major prod- ucts, of course, the surcharge either does not apply, cause there are practically no insignificant." Hudson listed wheat, com, rice, soybeans and soybean products, cotton, certain dairy products ami oranges as exam- ples of what he meant by insig- nificant imparts. "For some he said, "the surcharge may temporar- ily afford some additional pro- to its removal as soon as we and our overseas trading part- ners can deal with the circum- stances that dictated its use." TEAR RETALIATION Farm organization leaders and others in the agricultural field in the U.S. have expressed 0. Halbert Goolsby, a trade specialist with the department's economic research service, said in another report that the U.S. trade deficit would have been much worse in recent years had it not been for farm sales abroad. liy SUE MASTKRMAN London Observer Service T1IF, HAGUE Seven days of thick smog above Rotter- dam and the surrounding area during the recent short Indian Summer caused near-panic when a secret plan for evacua- tion of part of the population whose lives might be endan- gered leaked out. After a cabinet meeting last week, the Dutch Government admitted that it had no power to control Uie main polluters- industry and private cause its new anti-war pollution law will not be ready for Par- liament before next year. The with similar atmospheric situations around Los Angeles and Tokyo caused by the action of sun- light on industrial fumes- causes symptoms wliich vary from itching eyes, irritated lungs and throats and dizzy spells, to vomiting and asthma- tic attacks. At one point doc- tors were advising their asth- ma patients 10 per cent of the Dutch have some form of asthma to leave their homes and go to stay witli relatives anywhere else in (lie country. But meanwhile the sym- ptoms have spread to the whole area around Rotterdam down to the sea and across to Delft and The Hague. Officials spoke of "mass I hysteria" and "a better lion than last year, when we had to close the schools ant: I some but workers in several factories downed tools in an atmosphere which they said made work almost impos siblo. TNO, Holland's State scientific research unit, an- lounccd that the actual level of Til pollution above Delft was nuch worse than that in Rot- .crdam or in il-s port area, and hat The Hague was almost as iad as Rotterdam The smog effected an area of almost 20 square miles. Government medical officials b 1 a m o the record number of complaints from people suffer- ing from the ill effects ot the smog on "the unhappy coin- cidence of this weather wi'-h a mystery virus which afiects :hose susceptible to Imig com- plaints A record mnr.ber of com- plaints was received by the Central Reporting and Ruling Chamber, an official body set up by all the local authorities in the Rotterdam port area wliich warns industry if Uie level of pollution is getting too high. 'Phase the stage at which industries in the port area are requested to take all possible measures to cut down further pollution, was in operation for almost a week. But the warn- ing system can only request in- dustry to cut down and has no official power to demand that especially dirty sections of many oil refineries should slow down production or stop work. LITTLE HELP The complex and expensive system of re- cently installed throughout the area, which automatically mea- sures the level of sulphur diox- ide in the air and reports back- to UK computerized central posl, cannot help much because whatever causes l.hc smog sick- ness it is not sulphur dioxide. Write the Dutch Government is promising lo speed Ihc pas- sage of tiie new air pollution through Parliament, a des- perate but unpublicized re- search program has started to find out just what it 3 in the Rotterdam s rrr o g rhich has caused so much ill- ness this year. Local medical authorities will not give any details of numbers of people who have reported sick and have been examined by them. They deny that Uie hospitals have had to admit more lung and asthma patients than usual. But hi and around The Hague hospital rooms usually used for other purposes had to be cleared for extra beds to admit more pa- tients, especially children and old people. The only clue which has em- erged up to now is that the number of people reporting sick fluctuated with the extra- ordinarily high level of ozone in the atmosphere. The ozone develops when clear sunliglrt meets a mass of industrial fumes, and has also been blamed in Los Angeles and Tokyo for Uie similar situa- tions there. The large industries around Rotterdam are already prepar- ing for the effects of the new law, which will give the gov- ernment much broader pow- ers. The new Gulf Oil refinery, which has already been told by the local authority on whose ground it stands to stop pro- duction because its periodic 100-foot gas flame offends un- der Uie Public Nuisance Act, sent a circular last week to local inhabitants prom- ising rapid improvement. But the company has appealed to the Crown against the shut- down order and may continue production so long as the case is being heard. Democratic movement is like an iceberg By .TAMES It. PEIPERT MOSCOW i API Risking jcbs and personal freedom, a small band of men and women is keeping alive the hope that some day the Soviet Union will be a more democratic place. During the last, year, many of so-called "dissidents" have been arrested. Those still at large say Uie "democratic movement" is like an iceberg, with sympathizers scattered be- neath the surface cf Soviet soci- ety. Two of Uie best known of the active promoters of social change talked separately with ar Associated Press correspond- ent about their motives and pals. "I'm a pathological concern the duty could lead to; scid historian Pyotr lonavich retaliation by foreign customers and serious reducUons in U.S. farm exports. Exports in the year ended June 30 soared to a record value of S7.8 billion and ab- sorbed the equivalent of about one hi every four acres of crops harvested by farmers.
