When Vice President Dan Quayle made a campaign-style foray into a crowd Friday outside Melbourne's Flinders Street train station, most of the surprised Australians chatted, giggled and posed for pictures. But one older Melbourne office worker skipped the small talk. "What about the wheat?" he asked Quayle, referring to subsidized American grain exports that are hurting Australian farmers. Quayle shot back, "(We're) gonna keep on exporting." For the vice president, the incident was a quick reminder of some of the frictions that the United States faces with even its closest friends and allies, problems that are an outgrowth of the easing of the Cold War with the Soviet Union.
