Russian Made Tractors Are For Sale In Heart Of Dixie POPLARVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Tractors made in Russia are up for sale in places where most farmers equate communism with the Devil. But the hangups have been fewer than expected. . 'I" 1 ""*" "*« might be a ? ack i a ^' "US" 1ar - we hav «'t heard the first whisper," said T.J. McBride, * tractor dealer from Bessemer, Ala. McBride's showroom in Besi e m e r , near Birmingham recently added Belarus tractors, made in Minsk and shipped from Leningrad to New Or- Loyalty Oath Is Proposed For Instructors LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ Dr Charles E. Bishop, the newly appointed president of the University of Arkansas, refus-d Thursday night to comment on a proposed loyalty oath which legislators have sent lo committee. Bishop, however, who is the current chancellor of the College Park campus of the University of Maryjand. said most states do not use loyalty oaths. State Rep. Bobby Glover of Carlisle proposed the o a t h which is for instructors in state colleges and universities T h e measure is expected to set off a furor among educators. Approval of the proposal by the General Assembly however, does not appear likely. m »'f h o p ?J id te wouldn't comment on the oath until he had voTved ° r kneW w h a t was in " The oath was offered after nS Lcf ?.' s .' a , tlvc , Council quizzed UA officials for a I) o u t two hours on the Grant CooS.? .Cooper, who joined a Commu- "1 s , 1 °H gamZati(Xn last s sparked controversy by leans, La. The first load hit port last month. McBride was here to attend an all-day demonstration of the tractors from the Soviet Union. It was held, of all places, on a farm once owned by the late Sen. Theodore Bilbo--a fiery racist who never had much use For Communists, either. "It probably gave him a spin," said Mel Bailey of New Orleans, national sates manager for Satra Belarus Inc., importer of the tractors. The American sales program is still in the stage of attracting dealers, but at least one farmer already has purchased a Soviet- made tractor. Bailey has signed on dealerships at Bessemer; Picayune. Miss.; Bowling Green, Ky., and Poplarville, Miss. N i n e fire-red tractors, trucked in by Bailey and hitched to discs and harrows and cultivators and mowers, were put through their dusty paces during the demonstration. The day was bright and hot. A few farmers came, watched, inspected parked tractors and stood in the shade of cluster of oaks for a soft drink and a soft sell before moving on. "They're built rugged," said Clay Allen, who has a 320-acre farm near here. "An American tractor like this one would cost you about $7,000; their price is $5.600. "And when you buy an American tractor, you go on a six- month waiting list. I bought one last year." Argie Stewart, a tractor dealer at Poplarville, said that when a farmer saw his new Belarus models and vowed to Never Buy Red, his counter-argument was simple. "I just asked how much German or Japanese stuff he owned," said Stewart. "Then after a while he remembered that we fought Germany and Japan in World War II, but the Russians were our allies." Stewart added Russian tractors to his line because he can't operate without tractors to sell. He also offers Japanese and British makes. American manufacturers, due to various shortages and demands, have been unable to meet dealer requirements, he said.
