Wheat Sale Flayed by Douglas NEOGA, HI. (AP) - Sen. Paul H. Douglas, D-I11., says Canada's sale of wheat and flour to Russia follows Communist doctrine and is a direct blow to American foreign policy. The senator's remarks came Saturday after the announcement that the Russian government had negotiated the purchase of $50C million worth of wheat and flour from the Canadian government. The Russian purchase indicates not only bad crop conditions but a breakdown in the Russian system, Douglas observed. The senator's statements were made in Neoga during the dedication of a new post office. He told a reporter, "It's unfortunate that the free nations don't stick together." The former University of Chicago economics professor said, "Ir was their (the Communist's) contention that there was not enough unity among the capitalist countries and that this lack of unity would allow the Communist to play one off against the other." Earlier Douglas appeared with Orville Freeman, the agriculture secretary, at nearby Vandalia to attend the National Plowing Contest. In response to the agriculture secretary's question about 60 persons raised their hands indicating they favored the sale of U.S. wheat to Russia. Less than 10 persons in the crowd estimated at 3,500 raised their hands to indicate disapproval.

Harrell, the controversial Louisville, 111., cult leader, will go on trial Nov. 4 in U.S, District Court, East St. Louis, on two charges. Harrell, however, has been missing from his home since last March 31. His lawyer, Robert Rice, of East St. Louis, said he could call for a continuance, if his client does not show up for the trial. He said he has no knowledge as to where Harrell is. Federal authorities said if Harrell does not appear on the trial date in court, he could forfeit $52,000 in bonds posted for his appearance. Harrell and his family were reported en route to talk with federal officials in Springfield, 111., about his federal income tax when they disappeared. The charges against Harrell stem from Kartell's alleged attempt to harbor a Marine Corps deserter and resisting federal and state officers on his estate more than two years ago. G. E.
