Holdup on grain that's OK to go to USSR is attacked

The American Farm Bureau Federation has filed secondary-boycott charges to fight the refusal of East Coast and Gulf port longshoremen to load grain that President Carter said could go to the Soviet Union.

The National Labor Relations Board must investigate the charge of a secondary boycott, an illegal union action against parties not directly involved in a labor dispute. If the board's general counsel finds reasonable cause to believe law has been violated, a federal court will be petitioned for an injunction to force the longshoremen to load the grain, the Farm Bureau said.
