The $176 million in low-cost financing is the first aid from the bank for a nuclear project in a Communist country. It also is the largest ever for Yugoslavia. Eximbank's granting of low- interest loans and credits to Communist countries, which has increased sharply in the past year, has met sharp criticism in Congress. A number of congressmen object to extending low-interest financing to Communist nations--and other nations as well -- while domostic firms must borrow funds at interest rates above 10.per cent for their purchases and investments. And, on Tuesday, the House voted to try to block international loans to India as a pro test of her nuclear test last month. India has not signed the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and the House move would seek to prevent loans by the Inter national' Development . Agency to any country which develops nuclear explosives and does nol sign the treaty. BILL HUNG UP Eximbank's lending authority expired at midnight Sundas and a bill to extend it for an other four years has'- been hung up in Congress. A 30-day exten sion has been approved bu 'resident Nixon' has not signet t yet.. . . The . Yugoslavia credit wa announced in an Eximban press release on Friday, befor he bank's lending authority ex pired. Additional informatio on the project was learned elephone interviews Monda and Tuesday with Eximbank ol icials. The annual interest rate o he Eximbank credit of $17 million is 7 per cent, considera )ly below market interest rates. The financing is extern ed in the form of a credit to purchase of U.S. equipment. "We think our job is to he] tl.S. suppliers sell their equi ment," said Warren Click, e ecutive vice president of E: 'mbank. A spokesman for the Atom: Energy Commission said Yugi slavia signed an agreement year ago with the United N, lions' International Atom Energy Agency and the Unite States to buy the reactor. Sue agreements include provisio for IAEA to inspect the pow plants to be sure that the plut nium, which all nuclear rea tors produce, is not diverted make weapons. . The spokesman said that i objection to the contract wi raised last year by- Congres joint Atomic Energy Com mittee. The committee last week a proved a bill that would gi Congress veto authority ov any transfer of U.S. nude technology to a foreign cbuntr apel, accompanied by his lighter, 11 grandchildren and e -widows of his two sons. His face twisted with emotion he stopped briefly in front of e coffin. For the rest of the ne hour and 15-minute service e sat quietly in the first pew, odding his head at the praise r his wife of 48 years. Dr. Benjamin E.

Hohert Holland Route 2, Box 177 Faycttevillc, AR 72101 Phone 442-9069 By JOHN CUNNIFF Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) -- When executives think about raising vorker productivity the image hat comes to mind is the production line, and they ask: How can we turn out more units per manhqur of work? But what about executive jroductivity? Seldom asked in :he past except during recessions or serious lags in profits, be question now has become a matter of serious concern for arge and small companies. A bad executive decision, it is realized, is magnified on the production line. And time lost on the golf course may cost far more than the secretary's few minutes at the water cooler But this isn't always obvious. In a survey of executives by the American Management As sociations, respondents were asked to name the personne area in which the most seven productivity problems existed Most named production; But when asked to name tb factors responsible for the un satisfactory productivity the ex ecutives, inadvertently perhaps pointed the finger at them selves. At any rate, the poor produc tlvity factor most often checke by the 1,275 executives wa "lack of well defined organ zational or departmental goals nd objectives." That's a man- igement failure. The management organ- zation claims the survey ques- ionnaire, sent to 6,000 managers and presidents of Amcri- -an business, generated the econd greatest response of any of its surveys. Sixty-three per. cent of the respondents said executive productivity was a "serious concern" in the operation of business and industry today. And hey generally agreed it was :ied directly to achievement of goals and profits. Nevertheless, only 36 per cent were making efforts to evaluate executive productivity, a startling illustration of the absence of managerial goals. When asked to specify the productivity problem area in business and industry, the executives chose themselves as the least blameworthy. Production, supervisory management and clerical staff ranked highest. The concluding words of the report, to be published July 15, carry this admonishment: . It is time to forget the grandiose notion that managers naturally manage properly. We executives--from middle managers to presidents--need all the help we can get."
