"At last," he whispered as M i k h a i l Budin slipped inside. "Have you got them?" Budin pulled three small blue books from his briefcast and handed them over. "Here you are . . . a graduation certificate from a secondary school," said Budin, "a diploma from the Technical School of Soviet Trade and :i graduate degree from the Trade Institute. All this plea:: re fn - just 1,100 rubles." or $1,221 at the official rate of exchange. ~ : ": \vas known as the PFUCS- man who could supply "those n e c e s s a r y documents" -forged educational diplomas and degrees.

If he knows the right people and can atford it there is a wide choice available from black marketeers such as Budin. They range from an ordinary high school diploma at 6(10 rubles to a university graduate deeree at 2.000. Such black market opera- lions are frequent, otrects of indignant exposes in the Soviet press, The latest in Solsi- alisticheskaya Industria -- Socialist Industry -- told of a Leningrad gang which ran a lucrative business for nearly six months. Alexander S e l i v e r s t o v hatched the plan and joined forces with a printer, an artist and a photographer. But it was forger Valentin Kleineno? who did the real work. With pen and ink and a small metal press he turned out the final products bearing the official stamp of the Soviet government.

The diploma salesmen fre- q u e n t e d factory cafeterias where they found young workers anxious to leave the drudgery of the assembly line and earn more,money. After the KGB amassed 30 volumes of evidence a Leningrad court convicted 50 persons. "Today," Socialist Industry concluded "all those 'professors' and their 'pupils' are registered in another kind of educational institution." Rival Firm Chailenqes Awarding of Contract EAST HARTFORD, Conn, ffl -- Pratt Whitney Aircraft has asked the federal government to reverse the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's award of a $500 million space shuttle engine contract to the Rocketdyne Co. of California.

The protest was based on several allegations: -- That NASA did not notify PW of deficiencies in its engine plan until it was too late to make revisions prior to selection. -- That Rocketdyne's proposal did not meet specifications for the engine set by NASA. -- That NASA was in error in criticizing some aspects of PW's engine plan. -- That PW has previous knowledge of this type of engine gained by experimentation that Rocketdyne did not undertake.

Only $1.50 GIBSON PHARMACY 1330XOSTORYZ By LYNNE OLSON PAGE, Ariz. (5) -- Anne Morton, the vivacious, Kentucky-born wife of Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton, is getting her first look at the West this month on a tour of 17 states. "It's been absolutely great," she says. W h i l e accompanying h e r husband on an inspection tour of Interior lands and offices, the tanned blonde has visited Indians in Oklahoma, watched an Indian parade in New Mexico and hiked up a rocky can- yon trail to Utah's Rainbow Bridge. Almost three weeks of the trip remain, featuring a float trip down Oregon's turbulent Rogue River and a pack trip in the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. Mrs. Morton and her husband meet President Nixon today at Idaho Falls, Idaho, for a trip with him to the Grand Tetons. "The tour has been very informative, since I've never been to this part of the country," she said in an interview during her visit to southern Utah's Rainbow Bridge. "I plan to return often/' she added in a light Southern drawl. ' Right now, I'm picking out the spots that I'm going to come back to." Mrs. Morton said, her husband, a former Maryland congressman, wanted Westerners to get to know him better on the trip. Morton is the first Easterner to be appointed Interior secretary. "He not only wants to see the West, he wants it to see him." Mrs. Morton said. "He wants Westerners to realize that an Easterner can have some concept of the- problems they face." She said she has become deeply interested in the environmental problems facing her husband and his department. "Rog and I discuss the problems all the time," she saidr adding with a smile, "Occasionally, I'm able to influence him." Her personal contribution to conservation is using products that don't pollute the environ- ment, she said. "But they're very hard to find." During the tour, Mrs. Morton said, she has been particularly impressed by the rugged beauty of the West and the ' hospitality of its people. ' Westerners are friendlier and much nicer than people in the East," she said. "Easterners in big cities are so mean to you." But she added that she has not become totally acclimated to the Western way of life. On " her Wyoming pack trip she plans to use an English saddle. "From sad past, experience, I've found that I'm highly incompatible with the Western saddle," she said. Marine News fn Port Sandvlken (N o r w e I g I a n), Richard feugg 8.
