WARKEN WASHINGTON (AP)—Arc you planning to attend the presidential Inauguration in January? Thousand* of others are, too, and the headaches they are ere- party officials shine through this composite of the letters piling up in Washington. "As you know, my family and 1 worked awfully hard lor the ticket during the campaign. So naturally we want In on the In augural fun. "Please send us five tickets for the inaugural ceremonies and six for the Inaugural ball, as my daughter will want a dancing partner, and passes for other big doings.

TRY FACTS CLASSIFIED parade ruote so we can see It from the windows if the weather is bad. 'Sorry we couldn't carry our precinct for you and the ticket. 3ut, to coin a phrase, You can't win 'cm all!" If your letter brings a disappointing answer you might like to know some of the reasons. In the first place the inaugural ceremonies have two phases: There is the solemn oath-taking in the Specially built court before the recently reconstructed east side, of tha Capitol. Thi* Is under the jurisdiction of a Joint Sonate- House committee. Seats are free, but at least 50,000 requests are expected for the 18,314 spaces available, Then there are the attendant spectacular^, such as the twn- liour parade from the Capitol t< the White House, the inaugural ball, the pre-inaugural dinner, the governors' reception am' Constitution Hall concert, and the like. These are under direction of a citizens' inaugural committee. For his personal and official amlly your senator will be al- otted 12 guest tickets and your •epresentatlve only 8, leaving precious few for distribution to Insistent constituents. Already, members from Massachusetts and Texas, home states of President-elect John F. Kennedy and Vice President-elect Lyndon B. Johnson, are circularizing colleagues from distant and less concerned states for spare ticket*. It's true, this congressional distribution will not fill the Capitol stands, but think of the other demands, About 1,900 places ane assigned to the press, radio and TV personnel who must narrate and visualize this significant event for the world. Contracts have been let for semipermanent—wooden, that Is —spectator stands for 15,000 persons at a cost of $164,016. In addition, 25,000 bleacher-type seats wllj be put up with another 23,000 to be held in reserve for quick erection if seat sales warrant them. The costs of all these side events are underwritten by local merchants and associations who hope to get their money back through ticket sales. If there is a loss, as there was in 1957, the underwriters take it. If there is a. profit it goes to charity. In 1957, parade route seats, depending upon location, were priced from $3.50 to $18.75, the latter near the presidential pavilion and reviewing stand In front Add to these the diplomat* and °i the White House. This year families; the electors; and faml-! the committee hopes to break Her of governors; state party leaders, etc. even at least by filling the stands at lower prices—but what the Well,'you'say, If we can't see P ric . es will be has not yet been Incidentally, we may use yourjThey cost money, but even mon-;our leaders sworn in at least we j <lc ^' de f' . .. , lf fh _ ,„„„„..,.., office as a sort of •hea.l.piartcrs' ey won't buy space that's already can find a place along the two So what about the inaugural on Jan. 20 until the inaugural gets! filled. miles of parade route and cheer; hall?

By invita- ion only there is the pre-inaugural dinner on Jan, 18, the governors' reception and governors' concert on Jan. 19, and various itate society functions—but not what you would call wide open affairs. What about a place to stay?. For several weeks, members of Congress and their staffs have been pestering hotels, molets rooming houses and what-have- to reserve accommodations lor insistent constituents. Requests in writing are being received but invariably are being referred to a citizens' inaugura housing subcommittee for allocation to groups and individuals. Hotels have said that regular rates will be maintained but thai reservations must be made for four full days—Jan. 17 through Jan. 20—and that payment must be in advance.

Lower hog price are expected next fall. Lower egg prices also may be In store. The new administration Is ex pected to ask Congress to tak Immediate action to offset som of the depressing agricultural fai tors. During the campaign, Sen. John F. Kennedy promised, il elected, to signal an about face on the Ei scnhower administration policy of getting government out of agricul' hire and of reducing farm price supports. Kennedy contended that the only Way to improve conditions on the farm was to invoke rigid production controls designed to strengthen prices and in turn to put more money into farmers' pockets. He also promised broadened programs to help the needy al home and abroad—steps designer to siphon off some of the price- depressing food surpluses. But will Congress go along? farm states went against Kennedy In the election may strengthen opponent* of hla farm proposals. Fighting these programs will he the strong American Farm Bureau Federation. It favors withdrawal of government from • culture. But helping Kennedy will be the National Farmers Union and, to a somewhat lesser extent, the National Grange. In any event. 1961 is not expect ed to see many farm program changes. Enactment of the Ken nady crop control program li whole or in pan probably would come too late to be put Into opera tion during the year. SHOW STARTS 6:30FM MON.-TUES.-WED.
