Dale Bumpers said Monday that he had serious reserva- iions about ihe safety of nuclear plants.

Obituaries Trade between Japan Arkansas discussed LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The deputy to the Japanese ambassador to the United States said Monday he did not think regulation of United States grain sales to the Soviet Union would affect the large amount of grain this country regularly sells to Japan. Minister of Japan Seiya Nishida is the deputy under Ambassador Takeshi Yasukawa. Nishida said in an interview that he thought the United States had no intention of controlling grain sales to Japan. Meanwhile, major grain exporters were meeting at Washington in an effort to protect apparently dwindling domestic grain supplies. Nishida, 53, came to Central Arkansas to look at the countryside and to talk with businessman, bankers and agricultural leaders about possible trade between Japan and Arkansas. Japan was hit by export controls last year, but it still bought $3.4 .billion worth of grain from the United States, Nishida said. He emphasized that Japan "has been importing the large portion of United States grains...and we have been regular customers, and, well, perhaps I can say in a much nicer way, but I don't want to be, Japan does not want to be disturbed by, say, this irregular customers...but I don't want to offend Russian colleagues." Nishida said such large scales sometimes "give rise to dislocation of normal trade," but he said he thought the current problem was temporary and would not affect Japan. "I don't know the announcement to be made by the White House," Nishida said, "but I think the United States knows about our requirements and the sensitivity of our trade." Dwight H.

Panel finds oil firms derelict NEW YORK (AP) - A special slate grand jury says the country's major oil companies knew in advance that last year's fuel shortages would occur but did not use their available resources to make enough petroleum products to avoid the energy crunch. And the shortages did "render the nation particularly vulnerable" to last year's Arab oil embargo, the special panel added in a presentment handed up Monday, in Manhattan's state Supreme Court. The special body said "the evidence clearly shows that the petroleum industry did not produce sufficient petroleum products (including gasoline and fuel oil) during the first six months of 1972 to keep up with increased demand" that would peak a year later. The report said this was true "even though the industry at the time possessed the over-all capability (to produce sufficient products), both in terms of refinery capacity and availability of crude oil." In announcing the grand jury findings, state Atty. Gen. Louis J. Lefkowitz said, "It's a fair question to ask whether the Arabs would have imposed the embargo at all if the nation had adequate reserves:,." He empaneled the special grand jury last March to investigate the petroleum industry. Its life was extended to the end of this year. In its presentment, the panel made no allegations of Violations of law, and specific companies were not named. However, Lefkowitz said that while "the oil companies were telling Congress and other investigators that their inventories were confidential and could not be revealed because the figures were competitive, they knew exactly what their competitors' positions were through the Texas Railroad Commission." The commission is a state agency that regulates the production of crude oil in the state and gathers detailed statistics each month from oil companies. Hope Federal records higher gains this year Significant net saving gains have been recorded by Hope Federal for the year 1974. As of October 4, the firm posted net gains for the year of $2,600,965.51. This figure compares with $2,682,197 for the entire calendar year of 1973. Steady growth is seen from other years; for example, in 1971 the firm showed a net savings growth of $847,000 and for the year 1972 a net growth of $1,630,000. With approximately three months to go in calendar year 1974, an all-time new net savings record is predicted by Fred O. Ellis, president of the firm, reflecting the continued high economy of Hope and Southwest Arkansas.
