German affairs BONN, West Germany (AP) — West Germany has accused a U.S. business group of trying to meddle in German affairs by opposing a plan giving workers a say in running businesses in Germany, including some American owned giants. A spokesman for Chancellor Helmut Schmidt told newsmen Wednesday that the American Chamber of Commerce in West Gemany was "very close to interfering in our affairs" by distributing a study that criticized the so-called "co-determination" bill presently before parliament. . . -,tJ, Wlh "shareholders'^ on boards running the 650 largest firms in the country, including 50 subsidiaries of U.S. busineses such as Ford, General Motors and IBM. Employe representatives now comprise one-third of the board in every business employing more than 2,000 workers. * The Chamber has been hostile to the proposed legislation for months. The current row began when the Chamber dis- tributed an independent study claiming the bill violates investment protection clauses in a 1954 U.S.-German trade agreement by limiting the rights of American shareholders over their own businesses. A copy of the study was sent to Schmidt's office. One sent to the U.S. State Department included a request that Washington intervene in behalf of the American businessmen in opposition to the bill. A Chamber spokesman said the organization also urged U.S. parent companies, of- Ger Tr congressmen to pressure: the Ford Administration to do something to defeat the bill. A U.S. embassy spokesman said Washington has not responded to the Chamber's request for support and that the Bonn government had made no formal protest of the Chamber's activities. Ford administration officials said in Washington they do not expect an early reply and classified the situation as "a delicate issue." Kissinger mistakes said due to egotism PARIS (AP) - Henry A. Kissinger "has a desperate need to be admired" and the American secretary of state sometimes gets tripped up by his "reverence for his own intelligence," says a former French foreign minister. "He thinks that he can submit history to his reasonings, to his constructions," wrote Michel Jobert of the American diplomatic superstar in "Memoires of the Future." "There is no doubt that this fidelity to himself, this constant reverence for his own intelligence leads him to some mistakes," Jobert wrote. He added: "There is something of an illusionist in him. He feeds himself with his illusions, and he has many illusions. ... He has a desperate need to be admired. You can see it in his face." Jobert became foreign minister in April 1973 — when Kissinger issued his call for "a new Atlantic Charter" that later was sidetracked by Middle East warfare and the energy crisis. Jobert interpreted the idea for a refurbished trans-At- lantic relationship as an attempt by Kissinger to dominate Europe. Jobert wrote that during his year as foreign minister, he found that Kissinger always opened conversations by reciting a list of complaints. He said Kissinger "spoke a lot, easily taking a-silence for an aquiescence or professing sadness that an objection could imperil a grand historic design." But Jobert said he found that his respect for Kissinger in- creased as the chill between France and the United States settled in. He described Kissinger as "a man who was doing his duty to the best of his ability." Jobert retired upon the death of President Georges Pompidou last April. Since then, French- American relations have become warmer. Mills speaks to Little Rock Jaycees today LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The Little Rock Jaycees will hold their meeting today in the largest room of the Sam Peck Hotel instead of the previously scheduled location because of the publicity surrounding the group's speaker — Rep.

'V- "-"* i Harvests making progress Rules panel postpones hearings on Rockefeller WASHINGTON (APJ — Fail harvests and winter wheat' planting are making good progress after killing frosts last month that cut further into 1974 soybean yields. As of Oct. id, about 22 per cent of the nation's corri crop was harvested, compared with 18 per cent on the same date last year, the Agriculture Department said Wednesday, The soybean harvest was 34 per cent completed, far ahead of an 18 per cent rate Oct. 13 last year, USDA said in a weekly Weather repoh. Early frosts killed late-maturing corn and soybeans in many areas in September, particularly in the upper Corn Belt. Some further damage occurred in early October in southern areas. As Of Oct. 1, the department reported, the corn crop was es* timated at about 4.7 billion bushels, down 16 per cent from 1973'S record harvest of 5.64 billion. The soybean crop, as of Oct. 1, was p"t at 1.26 billion bushels, down 19 per Cent from 1973 production of 1.57 billion. Clear weather in much of the big winter wheat area allowed farmers to move ahead in planting their 1975 crop, the report issued Wednesday said. Mow- ever, Seeding lagged a year earlier in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Texas. Whiter wheat planting was 90 per cent completed in Kansas by last Sunday, compared with 55 per cent a year ago, the re- port said. The Oklahoma crop was 88 per cent planted while Texas farmers were 78 per cent finished. The cotton harvest made good progress in Texas, but dry and warm weather was needed in Arkansas and Tennessee to open the bolls, the report said. "Texas cotton was 25 per cent harvested versus 15 per cent in 1973 j Mississippi 19 per cent against the normal 27 per cent," the report said. Cotton farmers were 15 per cent finished in Louisiana by Oct. 13, ahead of a 10 per cent rate last year but far behind a normal of 30 per cent on the date, the report said. Elsewhere in the southeast the cotton harvest neared 30 per cent completion. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Rules Committee has turned down Nelsoft A.
