Five new columnists, Jack Anderson, James Kilpatrick, Art Buchwald, Louis Rukeyser and Mark Russell are appearing on the Times Herald Editorial Forum Page for the first time this week. Buchwald, whose, first . column will appear tomorrow, is one of America's foremost humor columnists. His column today appears in more than 450 newspapers around the world and is avidly read by millions. The writer • has been called the most -comic American observer of the world scene since Mark Twain. Born in Mount Vernon, New York, on October 20,. 1925, Buchwald and his three sisters lived in an orphanage and a series of foster homes, before finally settling in Queens with their father, Joseph, a curtain manufacturer. By then Buchwald was 16 and an indifferent student. On his 17th birthday he joined the United States Marine Corps. He was assigned to the Fourth Marine Air Wing and spent three and a half years in the Pacific. On his return to civilian life. Buchwald entered the University of Southern California. He wrote a column for the college newspaper and . . , Inside Citizens aide helps lowans cut through bureaucracy — Page 10.

Without waiting for a degree and driven by an urge to taste life in Paris, Buchwald left . USC in 1948. He bought a one-way ticket to France with his war bpnus check, and when his money ran out he took a job with Variety in Paris. In 1949, the writer presented a trial column to the European edition of the New York Herald Tribune. Composed of offbeat data on Parisian night life, it brought Buchwald a job on the staff. - , By 1952 Buchwald's columns had become so popular they were brought to readers in the United States. Americans took to the writer's new brand of humor and within a few years Buchwald "became a permanent fixture in the column-writing business. Early in the 1960s Buchwald switched his home base from Paris to Washington, D.C. In recent years his columns have featured humor found in the nation's capital. His home newspaper now is the Washington Post. Al t ho u gh • most of Buchwald's columns are now written from Washington, the writer will go anywhere he thinks there's a good story — and do just about anything to. get it.' He has chased goats up and down the mountains of • Yugoslavia, climbed trees to get a bird's-eye view of the races at Longchamps and traveled to Turkey for a firsthand impression of a Turkish bath. Buchwald is'the author of two dozen best-selling books. He also appears regularly on the lecture circuit. Rukeyser, whose column also appears for the first time in tomorrow's Time Herald, brings to his present role as television's top financial expert more than two decades of globe-raining experience as Columnists, See Page 2 WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumers may see retail food prices go up only 3 to 4 per cent this year despite prospects that the Soviet Union may buy more grain from current U.S. reserves, Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz said today. That would be the smallest one-year gain since 1972 and less than half of the 8.5 per cent increase last year. Food costs soared 14.5 per cent in each of the two previous years, after a rise of about 4.5 per cent in 1972. Butz told a news conference there is "a likely prospect" of Russia buying more grain for delivery by Sept. 30. Last fall, the Ford administration set a tentative limit on how much more grain the Soviets could buy from the 1975 crop without more 11 lowans Are Killed in Crashes By The Associated Press It was a bloody weekend in Iowa with 11 lives lost from vehicle accidents.

In any such talks, American officials are expected to weigh the consumer impact of additional U.S. sales along with other factors such as their estimates of U.S harvests this year. Just returned from a three- week trip around the world, Butz said his 1976 food price prediction depended on farmers getting "average weather" and turning out bumper crops of corn and wheat this season. Major U.S. grain companies disclosed that the Soviets last week bought nearly 4.3 million metric tons of wheat and corn, including some from last year's crop and a further quantity from 1976 production. The orders also included about 1.9 million metric tons of grain to be delivered after.Oct. 1 under a new five-year pact signed last fall. The agreement calls for Russia to buy at least six million metric tons of wheat and corn annually over five years. It also lets the Soviets buy up to eight million tons a year without further consultation with U.S. officials. A metric ton is 2,205 pounds. Last summer after the Soviet Union had bought about 10 million tons of U.S. grain, the administration halted further sales until more was known about U.S. crop production. The embargo also was ordered in the wake of threats by AFL-CIO President George Meany and maritime union leaders to boycott Russian grain ship loadings unless steps were taken to protect American consumers against undue food- price increases that might have been triggered by the sales. When the five-year agreement, hailed by the administration as a major step to reduce the effects of large grain sales on the U.S. economy, was announced last Oct. 20, officials said Russia could buy another seven million tons — for a total of 17 million — without putting any stress on U.S. supplies. But they said if Russia wanted more than 17 million tons, further talks would be in order. Some further sales were made after the embargo ended, and the new round of sales last week has raised to 16.2 million tons the amount of grain Russia now has purchased from the 1975 U.S. harvests. Thus, Russia is nearing the limit that U.S. officials had set before further talks would be initiated. Meanwhile, USDA officials have projected bumper wheat and corn crops this year, based on acreages that farmers say they will plant and on recent trends in yields. Given normal weather, the department says the 1976 wheat crop — which will begin to be harvested laterthis month — could be almost as large as the 1975 record. The corn crop, according to the projections, probably will exceed last fall's record harvest. Thus, department experts say, total U.S. grain supply probably will increase over the next 18 months despite the current Russian purchases and the grain to be delivered under the new agreement. Ford Drives for Comeback in Indiana By The Associated Press President Ford is campaigning for a comeback in Indiana while Ronald Reagan seeks to turn the momentum his way in a Republican presidential contest that may be raging long after the Democrats settle on their White House nominee. Ford said he remains confident that he will win the GOP nomination, and ranking politicians in both parties agree, But he won't win it quietly, not now that Reagan has scored a surprising wipeout in the Texas presidential primary election. It was a victory that virtually guaranteed that the former California governor will be campaigning all the way to the Kansas City convention that begins Aug. 16. By gaining all 96 delegates elected in Texas Saturday, Reagan cut into Ford's lead in nationwide delegate strength. But the President is still ahead, and by a comfortable margin when uncommitted delegates who are really on his side are tallied. Nonetheless, Reagan now has the credentials of a winner, the proof of his Southern campaign strategy, and the victory he needed to impress potential contributors. His Texas sweep exceeded anybody's guess. Reagan him- Kissinger Proposes Third World Fund \ NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger will propose a billion-dollar international fund this week to help Third World countries develop new sources of income, U.S. officials report. ' The officials said Kissinger would propose creation 8f an "international resources bank" when he speaks Thursday to the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). It will be the third major policy speech of his six-nation African tour. Officials said Kissinger's plan calls for the oil-exporting nations to put up about half of the capital and the industrial countries the rest. Using this capital, the bank would sell bonds on the international market. The proceeds would be Used to create new " sources of income in countries hurt by falling prices of coffee, sugar and other commodities that are their main source of export income. Kissinger is also expected to put forward plans to direct private capital to developing countries through multinational corporations. Spokesmen for some of the poor countries have condemned Kissinger's proposals in advance as devices to continue domination by the United States and the other industrial countries. UNCTAD Secretary-General Gamani Corea of Sri Lanka has proposed a $6-billion fund to finance integrated buffer stocks of 10 commodities: coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, jute, hard fibers, cotton, rubber, tin and copper. The fund would buy these commodities when prices are low and sell when prices are high to smooth out price swings. The United States and some other industrial nations oppose this idea. They say each commodity presents its own market problems that must be solved individually. And some of the poor countries object because a global commodity plan might wipe out trade advantages they have already negotiated on specific raw materials. The industrial nations also reject as inflationary a proposal to tie commodity prices to the prices of manufactured goods that the poor countries import. Kissinger arrived Sunday from Senegal, the sixth nation on his tour of black Africa. After stopping first in Kenya, he visited Tanzania, Zambia, Zaire, and Liberia. While in Senegal, Kissinger proposed a development program to "roll back the desert" in the drought-stricken Sahel region south of the Sahara. He urged Western European nations-to contribute to the plan, which U.S. officials said could cost up to $7.5 billion. Congress to Look at Charity Appeals WASHINGTON (AP) - "Did you know that hunger hurts?" a religious charity said in an appeal for contributions that Was mailed to thousands of Americans. "Children in our missions cry mostly because they are hungry," said the solicitation, which contained a picture of a child. "I'll be disappointed if you turn me down ... not be-' cause you will hurt me personally . . .but because you may be denying some poor child in our missions a ration of rice," the appeal continued. The solicitation was mailed by the.Pallottine Fathers, a C a t h o 1 i c missionary order whose Baltimore mission carried out mail-appeals. Americans, responding to this and other appeals, contributed an estimated $8 million to $15 million annually to the Pallottines. However, authorities say most of 'the money did not to go hungry children like the one pictured' in the fund-raising solicitation. The consumer protection division of the Maryland attorney general's office estimates that only around 10 per cent .of the money raised by the Pallottines went to the missions abroad.. Most of-the money paid for the mass mailings with other portions going to real estate and other investments; Revelations of mass-mailing methods used by some charities are spurring Congress to take a look at charitable appeals, an area once almost immune to federal regulation. Three different types of regulatory legislation are under consideration on Capitol Hill. The strongest of these measures, expected to be approved by the House Post Office Committee on Thursday, would require a charity to state in any mail appeal what portion of'funds raised in the last year actually was used for the charitable purpose. The Postal Service supports the bill, sponsored by Rep. Charles H. Wilson, D-Calif. However, the bill hasn't received the support of any charity. "The approach of the bill is not what most of the organizations in the National Health Council would want," said Barney Sellers of the council, which represents 21 health charities. Sellers said the organizations generally prefer a bill offered by Rep. Lionel Van Deerlin, D-Calif. This bill would require charities to send a report containing financial data to anyone who asks for it. Many charities already mail such reports on request. The Van Deerlin bill is pending in a House commerce subcommittee. The third bill, sponsored by Sen. Walter Mondale, D-Minn., would require charities to spend at least half of their collections on a charitable purpose. This bill is in the Senate Finance Committee. self had thought the race was a close one, and Ford had said at one point that he expected to win. But Reagan, boosted by the votes of conservative Democrats whose crossover produced a record GOP turnout, won in all 24 Texas congressional districts. It was a delegate selection primary, with no popular vote test. But Reagan's leading delegate candidates pulled two-thirds of the ballots. In the Democratic primary, former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter scored his own sweep, and cemented his dominance in that campaign. He captured 92 delegates, leaving only six for Sen. Lloyd M. Bentsen, who ran as a favorite son in an election he engineered to serve his own presidential campaign. Bentsen quit the presidential race early. He won renomination for the Senate, to run against Rep. Alan Steelman of Dallas. Carter said Sunday that he plans to spend more time now contacting party leaders, making sure all Democrats "feel welcome in the Carter camp," in an effort to unite the party he expects to lead. "I think now my time would 300 Stolen Railway Ties Are Returned GRUNDY CENTER, Iowa (AP) — Homeowners who stole' Chicago and North Western Railroad track ties to spruce up their property have returned 300 of them and paid $1,500 those they're keeping, railroad detectives said Monday. In a move similar to days when 1 ibraries allow borrowers to return overdue books without penalty, authorities will let the thieves bring ties or money to avoid prosecution. The thieves "have until the Ties, See Page 2 best be spent two or three days a week on the phone," said Carter, who now has 447 of the 1,505 delegate votes needed for nomination. Nobody else is close to him. Indeed, the man in second place, Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington, quit the race Saturday for lack of campaign money. That leaves Carter virtually unchallenged in the Democratic primary in Indiana. His active rivals now are Rep. Morris K. Udall of Ari- zona, who said Sunday he'll stop Carter; Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace; Sen. Frank Church of Idaho; and Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. of California. Carter now has won eight primaries. Udall and Wallace haven't won any. Church and Brown haven't run yet; their first tests come in mid-May. Texas Gov. Dolph Briscoe, who opposed Carter in the primary, said the victory there assured the Georgian of the Democratic nomination.
