To these preregU s, the court adds that the Spielberg doctr only applies if the arbitral tribunal (4) arly decided the issue on which it is later ed that the Board should give deference,j^ d tribunal's award appears 'repugnant to the statute. In the Ferguson case, the driver contended that his refusal to drive was a protest against "abnormally dangerous" working conditions protected under Section 502 of the Act and a protest on behalf of other employees against the unsafe condition of the truck and to secure its repair. He argued that such protest is protected under Section 7 of the Act, which gives employees "the right to engage in concerted activities for the pur- pose of mutual aid or protection." The Board argued that its deferral under -Spielberg was proper because the statutory question-whether in all the circumstances Ferguson was justified in refusing to operate the tractor because' of unsafe operating con- ditiois-"was squarely faced by the Joint [Grievance] Committee since Article 16 of the contract prohibited discharging Fer- gusol unless his refusal to drive based on safety factors 'is unjustified.' The court takes this issue with the Board on this point, saying: , the Board's characterization of the contract and statutory issues as identical does,not make them so, and our decisions resolution alongM conhttioned upon It tji tfie present case the Joint Committee ap lied to the issue before it a standard corfect under the contract but not under judicial interpretation of section 502, then RECot,.D -Extensions it cannot be said t'hs`', the statutory issue was decided by the Joist Committee.

"The 'green revolution,' encouraging as it is, nevertheless shows that traditional agri- culture won't solve the food problem of the future," according to Rainer Gross, West Ger- man nutritionist working on the Peru proj- ect. The undertaking here is far from tradi- tional. Essentially, it converts sunlight, a minimum of water, and a tiny fresh-water plant into a"flour" that nourishes human beings with vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and, above all, protein, the basic element of all healthy human nutrition. The plant is a microalga with the scientific name of Scenedesmus. Sown in shallow plas- tic basins of water, it is cultivated with abundant sunshine, measured doses of car- bon dioxide and a special mineral fertilizer. It produces a crop every four days. A centrifuge harvests the crop, recycling the water back into the growing basins. Dried, the microscopic plant becomes a pow- dery, leaf-colored "flour" with the faint scent and flavor of fresh salad greens. Except in appearance and consistancy, however, it's not really a flour at all. It nei- ther thickens nor binds when combined with other foods, whose colors and flavors it easily assumes; and it boosts the nutritive value. "The traditional food with the highest pro- tein value is the egg, followed by milk, beef and soya," Gross said. "Scenedesmus ranks between eggs and milk. By adding it to milk, we can give the latter a higher protein value than eggs." West Germany has conducted research on cultivation of Scenedesmus for human nutrition for more than two decades with an acre planted with wheat and protein than an acre of soy- protein 4,400% beans.

JOE L. EVINS OF TENtrFSSLL IN THE HOUSE OF R.EPRE ENTA rIVi;S Wednesday, September .15, ;9874 Mr. EVINS of Tennessee. Mr. Speaker, the Tennessean in Nashville in a recent editorial questions the involvement of the Central Intelligence Agency in the inter- nal affairs of other nations. The editorial specifically refers to testimony of CIA Director William Colby before a House subcommittee to the effect that the CIA was actively involved in the agitation in Chile against President Al- lende prior to his overthrow and death. This testimony included the statement that the CIA authorized $500,000 to aid the political opposition to President Allende, $300,000 to bribe Chilean legis- lators to vote against the late President, and millions of dollars for destabilization of the Government. Hopefully these policies of covert ac- tivities related to the internal affair:; of other nations will be reversed and a new set of principles adopted for the opera- tion of the CIA with much tighter reins on covert action. Because of the Interest of rely coilea> ues and the American people In this platter, I place the editorial in the RECORD here- with, The editorial folldWS: UNrren STATES NE MS To REASSE6s Cavsar ACTIVITIES ABROAD Disclosures that the central Intelligence Agency authorized millions of dollars for covert activities in Chile are bad enough, but President Ford's public defense of this Nixon administration policy is astounding.
