W>— A young official of the Polish foreign ministry won political asylum In West Germany today and denounced the Kremlin for turning his homeland into a "Soviet slave colony." The refugee— 28-year-old Boguslaw Borowicz, who was granted asy- llam after appealing to Allied occupation authorities here — declared that Poland now is no more than a huge prison.

The dark-haired six-foot refugee until recently was chief editor of Wiadomoscl Polskie a weekly newspaper issued in Frankfurt under the auspices of the Polish Bed Cross, but controlled and financed by the Warsaw foreign ministry. Borowicz who Joined the Polish United Wcrkers (Communist) Party in 1947 has bten in charge of the i^ weekly for the past two years. •™ "The aim of Wiadomoscl Polskie was to serve as organ for Communistic- and anti-West propaganda among Polish displaced persons/' Borowicz said In an Interview. "The directives relayed from the foreign ministry by the Polish military mission in Berlin were to glorify conditions of life In 'peoples' Poland and decry life In western Germany," he said. "The publication also served as a means to contact individuals for collection of Information on Allied militarj forces, the activities of Polish political emigres and activities of DPs unfriendly to the Warsaw re- Blmi "Under the protection of diplomatic Immunity, Polish foreign ministry employe* recruited agenU and Informers from among the German population and the DP's.
