SEOULN South Korea (AP) Moon Se-kwang told a court today he tried to assassinate President Chung Hee Park because he thought it was essen- ; tial to a Communist revolution in South Korea. He said he made the attempt on instructions from a pro-Communist Korean resident of Japan, but was deeply sorry over the death of Park's wife because he didn't plan to kill her. Moon said he had not known of Mrs. Park's death until investigators told him last week, and didn't know how a bullet hit her since she was sitting more than 16 feet from her husband. Moon testified on the opening day of his trial for the Aug. 15 Independence Day attack in which Mrs. Park was shot to death but Park escaped injury. A teen-age girl also was killed in the shooting in a Seoul auditorium. Moon is charged with murder, attempted murder, and attempted rebellion. If convicted he faces the death penalty. Moon said he entered the country with a false Japanese passport and fired five shots with a revolver he had stolen from a Japanese police station in Osaka. He said a Japanese couple, Yukio and Michiko Yoshii, helped him obtain the passport under Yukio's name, knowing that he was to go to Seoul to try to assassinate Park. ; Stringent security measures apparently were ordered for Moon's trial because of rumors that the radical Japanese Red Army or Arab guerrillas might stage terrorist acts to rescue him.

Ford talks to wheat farmers WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford, anxious to find out how farmers are taking the cancellation of $500 million worth of U.S. grain shipments to the Soviet Union, made a call to the Kansas wheatlands Sunday night. "Pretty nearly all the people out here are displeased," Clarence Ochs, a farm equipment dealer in Otis, Kan., said after talking to the President. Ochs, 69, said about 1,500 farmers were attending the grand opening of his farm equipment business when the President called Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., a guest of honor. Ford talked to Dolen then to Ochs. "Normally we've had real good reports on Ford till this deal came up," 'Ochs said in a telephone interview. On Saturday, Ford persuaded two exporters, Cook Industries Inc. of Memphis and Continental Grain Co. of New York City, to cancel contracts to sell $500 million worth of corn and wheat to the Soviet Union. White House Press Secretary Ron Nessen said Ford told the exporters of his "strong concern over the potential domes- tic impact that such sales could have at a time when the United States is experiencing a disappointing harvest of feed grains." Ford asked Dole how farmers felt about the cancellation of the grain contracts, an aide to the senator said, and was told they are not very happy about it. "Dole suggested the President consider renegotiation of the sale and something like a delay or stretch-out on delivery as opposed to an outright cancellation," the aide said.
