The food production record of the lets developed countries from beginning of this decode through 1966 it not on encouraging one. Food production, itorcely obit to keep pace with population growth, not to mention additional demand generated by rising incomes, fell behind over-all demand. However, preliminary crop reports for 1967 in the developing countries indicate food output per person gained 6 per cent over last year's drought* depressed levels, bringing production per person back to levels of Hie early '60s. U.S. Department of Agriculture reports the food-population problem will not be satisfactorily solved until population growth is effectively slowed and eventually stabilized. PROBf REVEALS Substandard Foodstuff Sold To Unsuspecting Consumers By DICK BAKNES Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - After government school lunch inspectors rejected 30,000 pounds of frozen turkey because it had thawed, the turkey was refrozen, thawed again to permit new labeling, rcfrozen once more and sold to supermarkets in New York City. That incident was one among many turned up by a special House Government Operations subcommittee in an investigation to determine how often sub-standard goods turned back by government purchasing agents are peddled to unsuspecting consumers as quality merchandise, The subcommittee, headed by Rep. Benjamin S. Roscntlial, D- N.Y., will open public hearings on its findings within a month. A member of the subcommittee staff said the investigation began after one of Rosenthal's constituents complained about the unusual bitterness of some coffee she had bought at a grocery in Queens. The subcommittee spokesman said (he coffee had been recalled from commissaries after authorities learned it was five years old. the government couldn't return the shipment to the processor; he had gone bankrupt. So it sold the coffee to commercial suppliers, who resold it to retailers without changing the military label. The subcommittee spokesman! refused to identify any of the in- LIKE NEW!] LJ Complete Body Strait hteninc & Paintinj HOLLEY CHEVROLET dividuals involved in the investigation, but said they would bo summoned to testify. Among cases to be examined at the hearings are two others involving frozen foodstuffs. The spokesman gave these details: —The Defense Department rejected 18,563 frozen dinners because their bacteria count was too high. A federal inspector said he wouldn't put the food in his freezer, much less eat it. But the processor salvaged some of his investment. He sold the dinners, at a discount, to his own employes. —Another 30,000 pounds of frozen turkey, purchased by the Department of Agriculture, had thawed by the time it reached its destination. The department promptly shipped it back to the packer, who just as promptly refroze the meat and sold it again—half to the Defense Department and half to the North Carolina prison system. An expert at the Agriculture Department said meat which is thawed and then rcfrozen can be dangerous. Bacteria begins forming as soon as the meat thaws an will survive refreezing, he said. Subcommittee Investigators also uncovered cases involving products other than food, the spokesman said. The Defense Supply Agency rejected one lot of 450 pairs o'f trousers because of faulty stitching, tears and machine damage. The trousers later turned up in a Southern California surplus store, still labeled to indicate they met government standards. "This isn't a hazard," the staff member said, "But it can be an economic loss for a consumer who assumes from the label that these things meet: government standards and then I has them fall apart." j Brig. Gen. Robert E. Lee, De-! fcnse Supply's executive direc-, tor for procurement and produc- j lion, said the "fact that some-! thing is rejected doesn't mean it j isn't any good." | "Our specifications are sometimes much stiffer than com mercial ones because of our problems," he said. For example, he said, the pockets of ; military work uniform mus have straight stitching that wouldn't be required for a civilian work shirt. Lee emphasized a product "doesn't belong to us until we accept it"—meaning, he said, his agency can't control whal the processor or manufacturer does with rejects. He said he had no estimate of what proportion of defense supply purchases are rejected. Heinz A. Abersfeller, commissioner of the Federal Supply Service, said that in the last half of 1967, his agency rejected 2.8 per cent of the goods it ordered, but kept no record of how rejected material is disposed of by suppliers. Bill Turns Tribe Over to State WASHINGTON (AP) - Responsibility for a tiny tribe of Indians believed to be Texas' first settlers would be turned over to the state under a bill approved by the Senate Interior Committee Wednesday. Passage of the bill, sponsored by Rep. Richard White, El Paso Democrat, would allow Texas to spend $35,000 for food, clothing and medical care for the 167-mcmber Tiwa tribe.

Fla. (AP) In the two years since Danny Goldman was kidnaped, tipsters ! have sent his parents and the I FBI scuttling down Mind alleys • from Jerusalem to the Oregon Jogging country, but the Gold!mans believe Danny still is i alive. Aaron Goldman said $40,000 waits for the persons who returns his son alive. If their son is dead, the parents will pay a reward lo the one who produces evidence of his death. The Goldmans say they are bitter with crank callers and they no longer constantly sit by the telephone as Mrs. Goldman did for 18 months. The Goldmans were tied hand, foot and throat and their mouths gagged with tape at 5 a.m. Monday, March 28, 1966, by a stocky man. "You don't remember me now but you cheated me. I'm here to get even," Goldman said the man told them after waking them in the bedroom of their waterfront home and tying the family. The man scorned the $50 in Goldman's wallet and $100 in Sally Goldman's purse, and demanded $10,000. "I don't keep that kind of money in the house," Goldman said. The man freed Danny, who was lo celebrate his 18th birthday the next day, and ordered him to dress. "I'm going to hold Danny as security for the money. You get up $25,000. If you don't get it for tonight the price will be double tomorrow. I'll call .. . with Instructions." The man then marched Danny off at gunpoint. The Federal Bureau of Investigation does not believe the kidnaper ever made contact again. Agents still visit the Goldmans about once a week. "It's like living in a night- mare," Mrs. Goldman said during a recent interview in the room where the kidnaping took place. "I relive the episode every day. Unless I hear otherwise, I will always believe my son still is alive. Bible stories say that when a parent loses his child in death, the parent forgets what the child looked like after a while. I have never forgotten." If Danny still is alive, wouldn't his two-year absence mean he didn't want to return? In the FBI's three other major unsolved kidnapings, the bodies of the victims were found. "No!" Mrs. Goldman said. "Danny's a very emotional type. A shock like this is so great it could have caused amnesia. "He could be working someplace, doing the thinks he liked best — television repair, printing, aquarium or automobile work." the boy's mother said. The front bedroom in the Goldman home — Danny's room — is unchanged since Danny was hustled away in his own car, an auto now recovered and parked outside. The bedroom is stacked with television sets in various states of repair, radios, dozens of batteries rusting and corroding, two phylactorics that are the implements of daily prayer for a Jew, other souvenirs of boyhood including a sailboat and school books. Letters come from all over. Pakistan, Italy, Canada, South America and every nook of the United States. Some means well, others seem sick. i "1 had always presumed there were a few kooks in the world," Goldman said, "but there are so many kooks you wonder. On the other hand, it is gratifying to know there are so many good , people who have wished us well and tried to help." Mrs. Goldman nodded and said, "I don't even know if I'd I know how to live a normal life • again. 'I'm suspicious of every, one, afraid, a feeling of sus- ipense all the time." | A woman in Miami said she i saw Danny in a picture from the ^Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. A logger in Oregon fir country i sent the FBI to a camp it. Esla- cada, Ore. A man in Poulsbo, iWash., said he could sniff «ut the grave from 25 miles away. Daniel Jess Goldman would I be 20 years old Friday. His last description had him just under six feet, about 170 pounds, brown eyes, dark curly brown hair. Mrs. Goldman decorates model apartments for her husband, i a successful building contractor. i But she won't resume her interi- or decorating business of gd back to her profession as a schoolteacher.
