That incident was one among any turned up by a special ouse GoVernflu-nt Operations jbcomBiittee in an investiga- on to determine how often ub-standard goods turned back government purchasing gents * ire peddled to unsus- ectlng consumers as quality erchandise. The. subcommittee, headed by ep, fieajamin S. Rosenthal, D- will open public hearings .n its, findings within a month. A member of the subcommlt' stnn aid the investigation ..after one of Rosenlhal's tonstftufints complained about he unusual bitterness of some toffee she had bought at a gro- :ery in Queens. The subcommittee spokesman said the coffee had been re- jailedyfrom commissaries after authorities learned it wus five fears 5 old. the government ouldn't return the shipment to khe processor; he had gone bankrupt* So it sold the coffee to commercial suppliers', who re sold it •; to retailers changing the military label. The subcommittee spokesman refused to identify any of the Individuals involved in the Investigation, but said they would be summoned to testify. Among cases to be examined at the hearings are two others Involving frozen foodstuffs.

But the processor salvaged some of his investment. He sotd the dinners, al a discount, to Ms own employes. -Another 30,000 pounds of frozen turkey, purchased by the , Department of Agriculture, had Rock Boards who were defeated thawed by Ihe time it reached M* rch "" Us destination. Th« department promptly shipped it back to the packer, refroze ee jected 18,563 frozen dinners because their bacteria count was who just as promjjtly the tmat and Sold it again-hilf to the defense Department and half to the North Carolina prison system. An expert at the Agriculture Department said meal which is (hawed and then refrozen can be dangerous. Bacteria begins forming as soon as the meat thaws and 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 of trousers because of faulty stitching, tears and m.ichlne 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 con- without sumer who assumes from the label that these things meet government standards and then fall apart." Gen. Robert E. Lee, Defense Supply's tor for procurement tion, said the "fact thing is rejected doesn't mean it isn't anygood." "Our specifications are sometimes much stiffer than commercial ones because of our problems," he said, For exam- Assistant AH?, G«u Thomas Glaze also said the controversy over the length of school board members' terms could have been avoided had the governor's call for a special session of the General Assembly had included an act to shorten the terms to comply with the new school election date* Glaze said the opinion Issued for the Cabot board involved an incumbent who did not seek reelection. He said Incumbents In both the North tittle Rock and Little Rock races may have waived their right to continue on the board when they filed for pie, he said, the pockets or a military work uniform must 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 What 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 of 1967, his agency rejected per cent of the goods it or- iut kept no record of how rejected material is disposed of by suppliers.

The manpower decline from 1966 resulted primarily because the military command stopped counting thousands of Commu* nlst political workers as part of the enemy's artm-d strength. The killed versus strength ratios are admittedly imprecise since the enemy's force levels fluctuate through the year and at any one point might have been higher or lower than yearend figures. Further imprecision also results from the way enemy death totals are calculated. The Pentagon once claimed h at enemy losses were toted up strictly by body count but former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara acknowledged before leaving office that the tabulation involved "many judgment factors." Often the "body count" is a mere battlefield estimate. On the American side of the ledger the war has claimed 20,096 U.S. servicemen from Jan. 1, 1961 through last March 16. Other U.S. deaths in the war zone not directly linked with enemy action total 3,555, Most of Us to Lose NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (AP) — Remember what you weighed between the ages of 18 and 25?.

The handwriting on the letter she got Is definitely that of her son, says Mrs. Everett Arnold of Santa Rosa, Calif. But she said the letter from Richard reads as though he would start a sentence—and someone else would finish it. Mrs. Lyle C. Shingleton of Atoka, Okla,, mother of Seaman John Shlngleton, does not think her son wrote the two Identical letters she received. One of her clues Is the way the letters start: "Dear Mom and Dad.." "He always starts out, 'Dear Folks'", Mrs. Shin- gloton said. Like Mrs. O'Bannon, Mrs, Shlngleton received a picture. Both photos were turned over to the Navy. Some of the families contacted by the Associated Press said they were satisfied with government efforts to free their sons. Most were simply confused and anguished. Only two said they thought the United apologize.
