ARKANSAS White House Draws Farm Blueprint By DON K K N D A L L WASHINGTON 7 ( A P ) -- T h e : Whit* House has been pushing! whit could become part of a political blueprint for larmbcll Republican candidates and speech writers who want lo cite Nixon administration accomplishments during upcoming election campaigns. As put fortli by the While House, the message is Ibis: \iTon farm policies have been so successful in the past five years thai they have been the underpinning of many diplomatic Â·moves and strategy developments on an i n t e r n a t i o n a l scale. That is not a new claim. Ag- r i c u l t u r e Secretary Karl L. Butz, for example, h a s said many times thai U.S. food reserves and f a r m potential helped make possible detente with the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China. R u t the claim seems to have :oen given new t h r u s t by W h i t e Â·Jousc aides, according to one ource who attended a recent i r i c f i n g by A l e x a n d e r M Haifi ir, Nixon's chief of staff. Ac- :ordmg to notes marie by the source, here ' ' " Â· Â·lied it up: "Farm policy is thÂ« the most progress of m i n i s t r a t i o n and is the President's N'o. 1 i n t e r e s t in the domestic economy. The wizardry ot (Secretary of State) Henry Kissinger would not be possible liout the design and under- p i n n i n g of a strong, sound economy U home." Hnig did not dwell on farm jiolicy in his b r i e f i n g , a closed m e e t i n g held May 2'.\ p r i m a r i l y for top public a f f a i r s aides is how Haig sum- area of this ad- In For A Surprose DALLAS (AP) -- The thief who stole a lane recorder and several tapes from the car of Francis Andrews of Tomball is in for a .siirpri.se -- the only sounds recorded on the tapes arc heart sounds. Andrews, 42, who lists h i s occupation as "heart sounds" work, told police he was in Dallas working at the Veterans Ad ministration Hospital when someone broke into his car and stole the tapes, Also l i f t e d was a "digital hcarlsoimd scope" he invented and values at $25.000. Andrews told police the scope is one of only two in existence. Ho said he was installing the oilier one at the hospital. The scope is a machine used h e a r t rese;irt^i. rom v a r i o u s departments of .he executive branch. His brief assertion about f a r m policy/ lowever, was warm! yreceived by Nixon people in the A g r i c u l - t u r e Department. The liaig talk ranged broadly over domestic and foreign policy, including a review of how Ihc While House viewed developments over the last five years. Apparently, HaEg told the nicetirig, U.S. leaders prior to Ni.xon believed the rest of the world could adapt to the American style and that it depended upon U.S. generosity. According to the source's notes, Haig said Nixon recogni/ed by 1969 that Ihu world had changed from that view in these terms: --"The U.S. is no longer an a f f l u e n t giant in a class by itself. --"Friends and enemies no longer depend on U.S. largesse. Newly developing countries do not want U.S. paternalism. --"The U.S. has no nuclear monopoly. By 19H9, U.S. and USSR were near nuclear p a r - ity, with this further apparent fact: the USSR had a building program t h a t would outstrip the U.S. this century. --"By 1%9, the animosity between Moscow and Peking was greater t h a n ttwt bclwecn the J.S. and either Moscow or Peking." Haifj said Nixon was able to replace confrontation with nc- j o t i a t i o n in dealing with Russia and C h i n a . Other ad-minislralion leaders, including Butx, frequently have pointed to huge f a r m sales to .he Soviet Union and a newly developed SI billion export ,rade with China as prime benefits of such talks. Although the Haig view of TOW Nixon f a r m policy has Telped broaden diplomatic relations abroad may please GOP ipeechwriters and candidates. the White House official apparently skirled some of the more sensitive issues which also have come up the past two years. Record farm exports, Eor example, have drained U.S. reserves of wheat to a 27-year low and have severely depleted stockpiles of corn and iother feed grain needed to turn out meat, milk and eggs for American tables. Food prices, lo a large degree, have soared to record levels because of those exports and a worldwide scramble (or them. Administration farm officials predict record grain crops tins year, hut if those do not mater i a l i z e f u l l y , another round of high dovnand from U.S. consumers and foreign buyers could lead to further gains in food prices. Also, if crops in the Soviet nion and China should fail a :ar or two from now -- pros- icts appear good in 1974 -- irvival of detente hailed by dig could depend greatly on ability and willingness of United Slates at that time provide another round of rge grain shipments to those lUntries.
