Los Angeles Times Service MEXICO CITY - The humble tomato has assumed what could become a typical role in United States relations with Mexico. Restrictions on U.S. imports of Mexico's winter crop have stirred intensive protest here, and farmers are talking of retaliating with a boycott of all goods made in the United States. AT STAKE, according to spokesmen for Mexico's growers, are about $24 million in revenue and the welfare of an estimated 10,000 Mexican families dependent on the tomato crop. The crisis, as it is being referred to in the press here, turns on a 1937 U.S. agricultural marketing law and a bumper winter crop in Florida. The law provides that in times of surplus, U.S. growers can appeal to the Agriculture Dept. to restrict the marketing of their product in interstate commerce. Florida's tomato growers are in the process of harvesting what appears to be an unusually bountiful crop and, to prevent prices from falling drastically, they have sought and obtained what are considered in Mexico to be severe restrictions. ALTHOUGH THE step is being criticized here as an embargo, U.S. officials point out that in fact jt simply fixes a minimum size for tomatoes introduced into interstate commerce. Mexican tomatoes, essentially of the vine-ripened variety, must be at least 2 and 17/32 inches in diameter to meet the standards. The restriction went into ef- Suit challenges State Bar question {A woman demanding admission .to the State Bar of Arizona will get an Arizona Supreme Court hearing Tuesday on her contention that the bar should not require her to brand the organizations she belongs to as either subversive or nonsubversive. •'She is Mrs. Sara-E. Baird, who identifies herself as a $67 Stanford University law school graduate who has lived jofr Arizona since that time. Through Phoenix Attorney Robert H. Allen, Mrs. Baird has filed a Supreme Court petition which asserts: • ' —IN APPLYING for admission to the bar here, she has answered the bar's question asking her to name all organizations she has joined since 16. —She has not answered a further question asking if she is or has been a member of .the Communist Party or any jother organization advocating irviolent governmental overthrow. ! The latter question requires $Jlrs. Baird to sit in judgment aon the organizations she has pisted among her affiliations •and "characterize" them as .'either nonsubversive or subversive, at her personal peril if such characterizations happen to be mistaken, her petition indicates. Moreover, the question infringes on constitutional freedoms of speech and association and it is unnecessary since Mrs. Baird has answered the other question calling for her affiliations by name, her petition adds. MRS. Baird believes she has passed the bar's entrance examination and the bar now should be required by the Supreme Court to show why she is not entitled to admission, her petition concludes. The bar has iled a two-fold response that: —Mrs. Baird's application for bar membership is still under consideration by that "EVERY HEE8 FOR THE SICKROOM" Rentals and Sales Bennet and Byrd Units Hospital Beds, Walkers, Wheel Chairs, Commodes. 278-8541 Dye Medical and Oxygen Supply Company 3332 W.

The importers promptly filed an appeal, and a public hearing is scheduled for Monday in the Phoenix court. Arguments will be heard at that time on behalf of the impor- ters, who supply the winter market in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and for the Agriculture Dept. Consumer and Marketing Service, the agency which ordered the restriction. SPOKESMEN for tomato growers in the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Sonora contend the new standards will reduce by half their normal annual shipment of about. 600,000 tons to the United States. In Washington, however. Agriculture Dept. officials say the reduction will probably be closer to 20 per cent. The Washington officials: point out, too, that Mexican tomato exports to Canada, roughly 20 per cent of the crop, will not be affected.
