Port Charges Add to Dollar Drain By PICK BARNES Associated Press; Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - An authoritative estimate pegged the government's payments for port charges on food ing to summon four federal agencies to explain why the government adds millions to the dollar drain each year by paying port charges on American food given to foreign countries. The Associated Press learned of the forthcoming investigation as President Johnson asked Congress to tax Arharican tourists as one step toward stemming the drain. Johnson asked Congress to tax American tour- traveler going abroad on a rising scale that would reach 30 fiscal 1967 and climbing rapidly. The General Accounting Office, an agency of Congress, began asking three years ago why are "groping for a formula, an | mean $9.5 million and $10.5 mil approximation" of the portion respectively would go to charges. There are "all kinds of port costs. t»chnical problems," he said. "There's nothing to negotiate "The Senate Foreign Aid ex- to get it," Lippman said..

By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER AP Special CorresppHaent WASHINGTON (AP) - Reports persist in diplomatic circles that North Korea specifically told the United States about the operations of the USS Pueblo well before it captured the ship. But U.S. officials, while acknowledging pre-capture protests by North 'Korea about alleged American "spyhoat" activities, deny North Korea ever specifically charged that the Pueblo was intruding in her territorial waters. About 10 days after the Pueblo began operating in the North Korean area a North Korean spokesman at the Military Armistice Commission in Panmun- jom denounced the United States for allegedly infiltrating "spyboats' 1 into Korean eoartal waters. State Department, officials said this allegation did not in any sense constitute'a North Korean warning to get the Pueblo away from Korean shores or action would be taken against the vessel. But some diplomatic sources maintain such a warning was given and that the United States had time to act to "withdraw th? boat if it had wished to avoid a crisis. ' '•• ;. •. -•• :; .•<•; .Secretary of Defense.-Robert S. McNamara asserted on a ra- diortelevision broadcast Sunday with Secretary of State Dean Rusk that the Pueblo "went undetected by the North Korean* for 10 to 12 d»ys." The ship was seized by North Korean patrol boats on Jan. 23. There have been reports that it arrived on station in the Eastern part of'the' Sea of Japan about Jan. 10. If it Went undetected for ifl'or 12 days the possibility of a specific protest against its presence on Jan. 20, officials say, would be quite small in view of the time taken for information to be processed through governments. The State Department bases its denial of any warning about the Pueblo, however, on its statement that a study of North Korean accusations at the time never referred to the Pueblo in ny way. McNamara and Rusk said Sunday they could not absolutely rule out the possibility that the Pueblo, while it was on radio silence for about 10 days or more, might have gotten inside the 12-mile sea limit 'set by North Korea. But they insisted it was not supposed to and that they had no evidence whatever that it had. ated Press learned. The free food is shipped under a 13-year-old program designed to meet famine or other emer- ;encies. in addition to donating he food, the United States pays shipping costs. Joseph Lippman, staff director of Gruening's subcommittee, said in an interview that a foreign government must agree to Dear all port costs. But, he said, 10 per cent of the transportation costs the United States has been paying actually are port charges—wages for stevedores, wharf rentals ?nd port authority fees. : Since 'transportation cost $71:4 million in fiscal 1967, that would mean $7.1 million went unnecessarily down the dollar drain for port costs, Lippman said. President Johnson's latest budget estimates such food shipments will' cost S9.5 million this biidget year and $105 million in fiscal 1969. If the ii) per cent estimate holds true, that would tered An AID source acknowledged "there are agreements. in the abstract requiring port charge payments," but said negotiations must be held with each country to set a formula for determining these costs:..:'.;. "We'll pr&bably have to take a hard stance very quickly," he added. ..,..• He said when the program began, it was envisioned food shipments would be in full shipload lots on charter vessels where port costs have been only a minor problem. Instead, he said, the vast majority of shipments go in smaller lots as part of other ocean liner cargoes. Liner tariffs, he said, don't separate port charges from:other costs, of shipment, thus creating problems of cost allocation. The General Accounting Of- first reported the port charge situation to Congress in mine what the charges are. The first case the GAO pointed out to AID concerned shipments to Colombia. GAO suggested that AID try to recover past port charges. AID replied, according to the latest GAO report, that "a claim should not be processed against Colombia because the objectives of the foreign aid program in that country would be seriously impaired by the assertion of the clamV'~ " •',' 1965 pers after investigating .ship- books. The new GAO re port .said AJD contended at that time that the United States should pay the port charges, but changed its mind in July. 1966 and set about trying to deter- IN THE COUNTY COURT FOR THE CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS IN THE MATTER OF ANNEXATION.
