(Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By GAYLORD P. GODWIN United Press International ;" WASHINGTON (UPI) —The Agriculture Department today estimated the 1964 food bill in the United States at $80 billion. This is 5 per cent, or $4 billion, above the $76 billion spent in 1963. The 1965 food bill will be even bigger, though the increase may more nearly approach the average annual 3 per cent rise between 1961 and 1963, the department said. ' The $80 billion outlay for food does not include expenditures jfor alcoholic beverages. These ttaled $11 billion in 1963. In a review of the national food situation, the department said this year's gain in food expenditures was due to price increases, increased population, larger consumption of food per capita, and more and higher- priced marketing services. The agency said per capita food consumption in 1964 is running about 1 per cent above a year earlier and that the population has gained about 1.5 per cent. It added that sales at eating and drinking places, up 7 per cent so far this year, suggest ithat more food is being marketed through restaurants and other away-from-home dining tables. Prices of such foods are up 2 per cent so far this year. The department said per capita consumption in 1965 is expected to equal 1964's high mark, and that retail food prices may increase only slightly. This means that most of next year's gain in total food expenditures likely will be due to The Almanac By United Press International Today is Saturday, Nov. 21, the 326th day of 1964 with 40 to follow.

Philip Randolph, president of the Negro American Labor Council; Dorothy Haight, head of the National Council of Negro Women; Jack Greenberg, director of the NAACP's legal defense fund, James (Farmer, director of the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE), and Whitney Young, executive director of . the National Urban League. . FOREIGN NEWS : COMMENTARY By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst WARSAW, Poland—The Poles slowly are closing the freedoms which in 1956 they thought they had won. The Communist regime which eight years ago seemed to be leading the way among the Communist satellites in restoring personal freedoms" today leads the way to taking them back in a campaign to still criticism and muzzle the voices of the press, the intellectuals and the church. Lending strong support is a resurgent secret police. The harsh government repressions may be laid in part to fear of popular unrest arising from a .desperate economic plight which'makes Poland the only Communist .nation to have an unemployment .problem. In part they may be laid to conflicts within the Communist regime, and partly to the contradictions of government policy which internally follows a path of strict Communist orthodoxy while externally proclaiming co-existence. Taking' Road Back And they seem. the more harsh for ofFthe five nations within the Communist bloc visited by this correspondent, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, only Poland appeared to be taking the road back. Leading a desperate rearguard action against the loss of liberties are the intellectuals. The year 1956 was climactic within the Communist bloc. It marked the beginning of de-Stalinization, of the Hungarian revolt and of th bread and freedom riots in Poznan, Poland. „ . Wladislaw Gomulka, once jailed as a Titoist, became first secretary of the iPolish party and defied Nikita Khrushchev with a declaration that each nation had, the right to find is own way to socialism. ; I. Gomulka pressed a purge of the -feared secret police, restored the bulk of Polish farmlands to private enterprise and Polish primate Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski to his duties within the church. Editorials in Polish newspapers reflected a new freedom of speech. But in 1959, catechism which in 1956 had been restored to Polish schools, again was banned and new attempts made to isolate the cardinal from.the Polish people. Today the loyalty of the church again is being questioned. Newspaper Disappeared In 1963, the newspaper Nowa Kulture disappeared and with it the last • of free editorial opinion. In 1961, the suicide plunge of a Polish journalist from his apartment window signalled the return of Ofma, civilian arm of the secret police to press a campaign of harassment of the people and passport control. Dramatic new evidence of secret police .activity came late this year with discovery of a hidden microphone within the walls of the new U.S. Embassy building. And in March of this year came, the famous ."letter of the 34" which protested censorship and other harassments of Polish intellectuals. It led to stormy debate and on Nov. 9 to the conviction of Melchior Wankowicz, a Polish- born U.S. citizen on charges of distributing "false and slanderous" material against the government at home and abroad. Wankowicz, a noted writer and lecturer, obtained his U.S. citizenship in 1956 but returned to Poland four years later. Po- FEED PRICES ARE LOWER KIND OF FEED Bag Ton Price Del. 50 Lb.

' : Trial Not; Over' Wankowicz, free pending outcome of his appeal from an 18 month -sentence, has declared the trial "far from over." The regime frowns upon abstract art in which the Poles are recognized ' as leaders. Strict censorship applies to the film industry which has not won a major award in two years. : ' In contrast to the relaxation among other members of the bloc, Poland retains strict border controls. It is estimated that 800,000 residents of Warsaw .'lost their lives in the defense of their city, i first .in the initial onslaught of 1939 and ,later in the Warsaw uprising against the Nazi Germans in August, 1944. Warsaw's tall buildings, the restoration of national monuments, ancient churches and palaces and new housing developments are the evidences of a reconstruction effort probably unmatched in modern times. They rose from a city that had been levelled. But the idle arms of huge construction cranes silhouetted against the sky also are the evidence of an economy that over-reached itself. . It is figured today that 23 per cent of the Polish population in the age group 15-19 are unemployed. These are the unskilled and of these it is estimated that 250,000 are male. From these idle come the hooligans to demonstrate in 'Polish city streets. Jobs Not Available By 1971 it is expected that another 1.5 million people will swell the Polish labor market. As today's planning stands, jobs will be "unavailable to approximately 200,000. The Polish economy itself defies definition.,. On the If arms, it is primarily, one of private enterprise. Taxes are paid in kind and are compulsory. A bad crop year means that the farmer must borrow from his neighbor. In Warsaw, the state owns all the land, but cooperative apartments on the laVid may be purchased by. private individuals. Outside Warsaw, both, land and the buildings upon it may be held by private ownership. To correct the desperate state of industry, the regime has fallen back on measures remarkably capitalistic in their operation. "'In the last year, 30 firms were set aside to deal in exports only. Three of these operate free of centralized control, under instructions only that their product be competitive in qutside markets. An example is the Poznan Cegelski plant which manufacturers engines for ships and diesel locomotives. Another manufactures railroad cars and other heavy rolling stock. Economists were given greater voice in other industries, notably the chemicalj-'jin deter-, mining lines wluchi.will be; expanded or discontinued" Some Priv*a|p'•'SjBryices. : ,•.. , In-the fight Jagidlst unemployment, the regime has permitted a return id private services such as' blacksmith shops, laundries and small restaurants. The Polish.economy fell upon evil days'because of a too-rapid expansion of industry and ver- ly ambitious construction plans which under-estimated costs. In 1963, employment hit , a peak not. expected before 1966. > ; The result was a rising family income, ah increasing de- 1 ) mand for'luxuries and galloping inflation. To meet the emergency, the government froze employment in light industry and cancelled building projects. Construction firms laid off up to 10 per cent of "their employes. 1 \ ; .The next resulf; WaSr today 's unemployment. > '.^Traditionally, wars have swept across the plain of which tWarsaw is the *»nter, Vftadj- 'tlpnally the Poles* jj ^e 'Jit(Continued i BACK ivf BUSINESS} Llvt.^ ; trucHl W .^,^ Claret 'Am } «&&*v !rf TELL ME TfiE JLARGfSr HAILSTONES KMOWN...'/fc INCHES \N 'CIRCUM- 'FEREUCE....FELL M NEW SOUTH V/flUES.'

Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—Was it really a whole year ago? It will have been at 1:30 p.m. EST—Nov. 22, 1964. Twelve months distant from three bursts of gunfire out of the sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building in Dallas. Where were you that day? If you were in a newsroom, will you ever forget the horror of what you saw on the wire: F—L—A—S—H DALLAS —President Kennedy shot and seriously, perhaps fa- tall, wounded by assassin's bullet. . If fVouHwerje Mrs. Mary Mc- Grath.tHai *He "w York cleaning woman," do' you remember telling people at St. Agnes Church, "Jesus, Mary, Mother of God, President Kennedy was shot." Charles Brehmn of Dallas will never forget. He saw it happen. "He was waving and the first shot hit him, and then that awful look crossed his face." A Gigantic Shock Can anyone really forget those four numb days when, as it was written, grief rolled over the nation like a gigantic shock wave, and you wondered at the time if it would ever subside. Has' it really subsided yet? Not on the faces of the thousands who make their way up the green, sloping face of Arlington . National Cemetery to stand beside his grave, or who wince at the sight as they see the eternal flame flickering in the dark of a Washington night. Where, now, are the principals of that terrible day in Dallas? Lee Harvey Oswald lies in his grave in Ft. Worth, unmourned. •His foul crime against a man, and ^gainst humanity, is still not understood even-despite the Warren. Report's searching analysis.of his twisted.mind, . "jack Ruby, his killer, sits in a Dallas jail cell, awaiting execution—or a commutation, or a new trial—while his mind deteriorates.' , , Gov. John Connally of Texas, who nearly died from one of the assassin's bullets, is fully recovered.

' Life Goes On Life, of course, goes on, and the world changes^as it always does. There'is much that has baopenedin the last 12 months thai John' Fitzgerald Kennedy, 3Sttt president of the United States, with all ;his 'dreams and aspirations, would have been happy to' see. He fought so hard that final year for the ta$ cut and the cl- iytl- rights bilir Off 1 that muted November day when his successor, stood before,a stricken Con<*e* W Ssattl "lePli8 .Wptin-, lie," he called for passage, of both bills as the most fitting memorial that could be provided/or> John Kennedy. UWh feVruar5fc%e t ta: sTlne^tos&hlu^hi _ economy, becaiae law. On June tin July 2 the most far-reaching piece of rights legislation since the days of Civil War reconstruction became the law of the land; It has, for the most part, been obeyed. The fact that Americans, North and South, largely have accepted it would have made John Kennedy more happy than its mere passage. There are many other things that this cultivated and witty man would have enjoyed. He would have liked the accomplishment of the Washington Senators, whom he kept seeing lose on opening day of the baseball season, who finally climbed out of the American League cellar. True, they- only went up one notch, but progress in-all things is noteworthy. Many Events Since He would have been proud of the- American Olympic team that won more gold medals than anyone else at the Tokyo Olympics. This, man who pushed so eloquently for Negro equality would have welcomed the decision of the Nobel Peace Committee to award its 1964 prize to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. These are all- rather small things in the scheme of the awesome power, that radiates from the President's office in the White House. In the world of big matters that count, there has been much that has been good, and much that has been bad that Kennedy was spared. He would have reacted with dismay to the racial violence that erupted this summer from Harlem, Rochester and Jersey City in the north to Philadelphia, Miss., in. the South. A president who fought with such deep conviction for the nuclear test ban treaty, he would have been disturbed by Red China's nuclear explosion, heralding the spread of atomic weapons which Kennedy viewed as a setback to mankind. The Torch Burns He would have understood the internal forces that brought about the change in leadership in Britain and. Russia, but he probably would have regretted the disappearance of his old foe Nikita S. Khrushchev from the scene.* Khrushchev was the man who brought the world to the brink of war in the Cuban . crisis that Kennedy handled so brilliantly two years ago, but he was, as Kennedy knew, a tough peasant who understood reality. All of these changes have made for an eventful year, climaxed by last Nov. 3 when Kennedy's chosen vice president, Lyndon Johnson, swept to the greatest electoral victory of. all time. Johnson campaigned on a pledge to keep burning the "golden torch of promise that John. Kennedy set aflame." And throughout the whole year, the nagging undertone of frustration and sadness, the words of the poet John Donne: "Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefre never send to know for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee." VILLA SACKED ISLAND IF ISCHIA, Italy (UPI)—The villa here of actor Eduardo Cianelli was burglarized Thursday night of jewels, paintings and other valuables.
