cottonseed oil to Russia These are not strategic materials and here is no policy barrier against them except a general policy under which the government reserves the right to bar any exports to Russia contrary to the security interests of the United States There are several forces pressing strongly for official sanction of greater trade with the Soviet Union and satellite countries They are 1 The development of a buyers market meaning a supply of oods running consistently above the demand 2 The accumulation of vast stores of surplus agricultural com modities in the United States 3 A slow move toward general easing of international tensions The more the Soviets make friend y gestures the more traders everywhere tend to look for busi ness with the Soviet Union But on the other side is a set of arguments which has many adher ents especially in the State De partment and probably in the De fense Department as well They in clude 1 A major policy of the admin istration has been to exploit dif ferences between the rulers and the ruled in all the Communist coun tries rA major source of trouble for theSoviet leaders has been low agricultural production The export of any large quantity of foodstuffs such as fats and oils would run contrary to US policy on this point 2 Agricultural surpluses for for eign sale are often in effect subsi dized by the government The gov ernment would have difficulty jus tifying the subsidized export of any foodstuffs toRussia 3 A basic rule of US foreign economic policy is not to export surpluses in such a way as to in terfere with normal trade patterns of friendly countries Countries other than the United States nota bly those of Western Europe are normal traders with the Soviet Un ion A heavy export of goods there might defeat US policy interest in maintaining and expanding these trade patterns for countries to which billions of American aid dol lars have gone May Replace i Amendment WASHINGTON UP A resolution circulated among most

all but about 10 of the 96 senators last Saturday by Sen Kefauver Unlike the proposal by Sen Bricker ROhio and an adminis trationbacked substitute by Sen ate Republican Leader Knowland of California the resolution would not amend the Constitution it would simply put the Senate on record as affirming certain atti tudes toward treaties and their domestic effect It would also re quire a recorded roll call vote when the Senate ratifies treaties Bricker argues that an amend ment to the Constitution is needed to insure that basic American lib erties shall not be taken away by treaties which he says migh supersede domestic law and thi About The Weather Mason City Cold wave with strong northerly winds and light snow Iowa Cold wave with tempera tures falling to 10 to 15 below Minnesota Snow
