Farm Roundup By DON KENDALL AP Firm Writ»r WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of Agriculture Clifford M. Hardin is the keeper of a bit of nautical memorabilia that lends credibility to one of his honorary titles as an admiral in the Nebraska navy. Hardin was presented last week with a plaque bearing the narheplate of the S.S. Jeremiah Rusk, a World War II Liberty ship recently sold for scrap. Someone in the Department of Commerce's Maritime Administration thought it fitting for the Agriculture Department to have the ship's nameplate, since the vessel was named in honor ol Jeremiah McLain Rusk, the first full-term secretary of agriculture. Hardin, who was born in Indi ana and was chancellor of the iluses overflowed existing land storage facilities. Then she served as a floating warehouse or surplus wheat. "I the secretary of agriculture for whom the ship was named would have been proud o be memorialized by a ship which, like her namesake, served her country so well," Gibson said. "Farmers and sailors have a ot in common, though one plows the land and the other the sea. The work of both is a basic and continuing part of our history and our economy." The old Liberty ship, since its jranary days ended in 1963, was aid up in the Hudson River Reserve Fleet waiting another chance for service. However, .he Vietnam conflict passed her )y and last January the S.S. Jeremiah Rusk--which cost $1.7 joining the Nixon cabinet, has a number of honorary titles, one of them the Nebraska navy ad- miralship and another as "Sagamore of the Wabash" in Indiana. .The Jeremiah Rusk nameplate, an 18-by-23-inch plaque, will be displayed in Hardin's office. Jeremiah Rusk, the ship s namesake, technically was the second secretary of agriculture after the agency gained Cabinet status in 1889. The first secretary, Norman J. Colman--who had headed the agency when i was a lesser bureau--served only three weeks. Rusk, a former governor o! Wisconsin, then served a four year term. He helped organize the department's personnel poll cies and was a pioneer in get ting government information to farmers. According to one report.

(AP) An altar boy on the way to church Sunday picked up a deadly coral snake that didn't bite until the boy finished his chores at early mass. Bruce Yeagcr Jr., a 12-year- old reptile fancier, dropped off his bike to stuff the red, black and yellow striped snake in his pocket and then continued on to church, his mother said. "He thought it was a harmless king snake," Mrs. Yeager said. "He's always bringing snakes home. He's got a boa constrictnr here now for a pet." At church the boy changed nto robes and helped with mass. "When he finished, and was changing clothes, he reached nto his pocket for the snake and t bit him," his mother said. A chum, 12-year-old Richard Glavish, checked the 32-inch snake in a book after the Yea- ;er boy cycled home and found it was the coral whose venom attacks the central nervous system. WASHINGTON (AP) - In a ! jlack-bordered brochure at his 'uneral, Brig. Gen. William Itoss Bond was described as having been "high in that minis- culc group destined to lead the United Slates Army." In plain language, he was known around the Pentagon as a comer. i The 51-year-old general, who battled back from a massive heart attack in 1965 to win his star and a field command, was killed by a sniper April 1 some 70 miles northeast of Saigcn. Rare Event lie was the only American general to die in ground combat in the long war. Five others have been killed in plane or helicopter crashes. At the time of his death, Bond was directing elements of his 199th Light Infantry Brigade in a fight against two North Vietnamese companies. Reared in Maryland and Virginia, Bond graduated from the University of Maryland and spent a year at its law school before enlisting in the Army early in World War II. A lieutenant by 1942, Bond fought in North Africa and Sici- y. He volunteered for the amed "Darby's Rangers" and oarticipated in some of the bit- crest fighting of the Italian campaign. He was with the Rangers the night of Jan. 30, 1944 when--at lislcrna Di Littoria near Anzio when he took over command of a 101st Airborne Brigade in 1904. But in January 1965 lie suffered a massive heart attack, and was ruled unfit for retention on active duly. "For the ordinary officers this would have been the end of career and aspirations," said the brochure given out at his funeral. "But Bond was cast in a special mold." By a complex scries of persuasive appeals and waivers he secured probationary assignment to Thailand in 1966. There, though he sometimes complained bitterly in private that "the fates are against me," he began to rebuild career and health. He had returned to Vietnam just last November. Bond was married in 1960 to the former Theodora Sedgwick They had no children.

The pilot took the plane to about 400 feet and the men ejected, but air force officials said there was not enough height for the parachutes to open.

In Washington a U.S. Treasury spokesman said in response to queries that the intent of the Ca- ladian action "is to permit the exchange rate to move over a broader range above the existing parity, with the aim of dampening a sharp increase in reserves and internal liquidity which has been aggravated by short term capital inflow. "The U.S. government, while ,-ecognizing the circumstances ,hat motivated this action, welcomes the intention of Canada o remain in close consultation vilh the International Monetary ?und, with a view to a return to lormal practices at the earliest possible date. The U.S. dollar is not affected." Simultaneous with the action on the dollar, the Bank of Canada announced a reduction in the bank rale from 7'.i per cent to 7 :er cent--the second drop in :our weeks.
