Television Review By CYNTHIA IX )WRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP)-"To Tell the Truth," CBS's Monday night i guessing game is a pleasant, i well - placed, early evening pro- 1 gram. At our house, we watch it with our after - dinner coffee, finding it amusing lo guess with the panel which contestant is the real skin diver, bear wrestler or whatever. Monday night's show was about par for the series, which will soon start its eighth season on the network. Tom Poston, Peggy Cass, Orson Bean and Kitty Carlisle were bright and good-humored, if not always too shrewd in their attempts to spot the real inventor of the wobble board, the real Japanese flower arranger and the real designer of Thanksgiving Day parade balloons. The show had been taped Nov. 20 for broadcast the following Monday, but that was the day of President Kennedy's funeral, and it underwent some minor surgery. A light - hearted exchange between Poston and a cohtestant who said her name was Casa- blancas revolved about its translation as "white house." Producer Gil Fates thought it would be in better taste to remove the reference. CBS will pre-empt the Jackie LONG TIME BETWEEN TRAINS—Mayor Debruyne of the French coastal town of Sangatte, near Calais, stands beside a monument marking the place where a tunnel under the English Channel was started in the 1890s.

WASHINGTON (API - U.S. farm exports are likely to advance to $6 billion for the year ending June 30, up sharply from the 5.1 billion total for each of the past two years. The Agriculture Department said the outlook is particularly favorable for exports of wheat, cotton, soybeans, dairy products and vegetable oils. Exports of wheat are likely to total a record 1 billion bushels in response to an exceptionally strong demand in Western Europe and the Soviet Union, where wheat harvests have been poor. Exports of soybeans will continue to benefit from the substantial increase in demand for oils and protein meal in West- em Europe and Japan. ment for the "Jerry Lewis Show."
