>Southern California fires are not only affecting people in southern California but airline passengers from around the world as well.

A trade tour scheduled for eastern Idaho today may have to be delayed to allow representatives from several countries in the Far East to arrive.

According to TK Kuwahara, United States Potato Board tour leader, the trade representatives had to be re-routed through other airports, which will probably cause a delay in the tour.

The tour is to be made at the fresh-pack and dehy plants at Larsen Farms at Hamer, ID. The group is also scheduled to visit the Miles Willard Company Inc., which develops formulated potato products for major food companies.
