Restoration Of Washington Homestead Annual Program Washington-(/P)-The ?20th anniversary of George Washington's birth finds his famous ISlh century homestead more than ever like it was when he and Martha Washington, lived there. Reconstruction of General Washington's greenhouse, a major proj- cc'. in thn restoration of Mount .Vernon, has -just been completed. Another restoration project, re;decoration of the banquet hall, is Hearing completion. The original greenhouse, last ol ·the major units which constituted Mount Vernon at its highest state of development, was the o n l y major structure that failed to survive until the . Mount Vernon Ladies Association acquired . the property in 1858. It was destroyed by fire in "1835."' ' : Evidence for the present recon- struction, largely obtained iron the correspondence of Genera Washington, was accumulated ove many years. Sufficient data for an authentic reproduction was gathered by the latei 1930's, but World War II forced postponement o the reconstruction. The Mount Vernon Ladies Association is beginning its 94th year as a custodian of the most famous home in the Western Hemisphere The association pursues month by month and piece by piece a perpetual program of restoration. Should the mansion ever be destroyed, it would be possible to reproduce the celebrated home for future generations of Americans Large scale measured drawings are available which/include even the the intricate 'designs of the ornamental plaster ceilings. Stocks, Prices Sag As Raw Material Supply JjjjIds Up By SAM DAW'SON New York-OP)-Slipping stock prices and sagging commodity prices point up 'at least one thing --America's staggering ability to produce. The raw material shortages (real and imagined) that developed after Korea are melting steadily. Abundance is succeeding scarcity in the nation's factories--just as it did long ago in the retail markels And signs increase that fast- expanding industry 13 approaching the point where it 'can supply al that civilian, consumers will buy and military consumers need-with products to spare.

As a result, wholesale commodity prices have dropped lower, on average, Ulan they/ were a year ago. This has finally caught up with some retail prices, as store sale ads show. industrial capacity is licking inflation, business leaders contend. Slocks Marked Down And stock market operators, worried by the easing in the prices of goods and the profits of business, recently have marked down the stocks of some companies. On the London stock market base mcta shares were particular targets of bearish-minded traders --a sure sign that they, at least, think the days of shortages in lead, zinc and copper are numbered. ·Metals men here also report there are m lines of customers forming pi their mill doors for stmc of their products. .,-', Makers of brass sheets and strip, for example, say demand Is definitely off, Their products arc used by auto, electric, hardware and plumbing industries. And output of these industries, has been cut back--in some cases by government controls i n d . i n others by slackening sales. ·· Sheet and strip arc in plentiful supply, steel officials say, Their customers have as big inventories of these products as government inventory curbs'permit. The speed with which American steel mill capacity has expanded has astounded the world. Some Types Scarce Some other types of brass, steel and copper products are still in tight .supply. And government control officials insist that the suddenly appearing surpluses of some industrial products docs not change the over-all picture of defense needs. 1 Tho government, however, is relaxing some of its metals control, to the extent of permitting more metal to go in the second quarte to makers of cuch "Jess essential' goods us toys, Venetian blinds cigarette lighters, umbccllas am costume jewelry. Abundance is also showing in some non-metal products tha once were j-:arcc. Cotrols are being relaxed on rubber and some chemicals. Paper companies note a slacken- ng in 'orders and consumers report they can get all .they want now.

Munich, Gcrmpny-yi'J-One of* iT.e Kremlin's biggest headaches throbs daily in '.His Bavarian city just a jet hop from the Iron Curtain, where Radio Free Europe fires a ceaseless barrage of infor- matign against what RFE calls "the big lie of Communism." . If a speed-up plan in a.Commu- nist factory outside Prague falls flai, Itadio Free Europe has the report almost immediately and spills the beans during Its 18-hour daily broadcasts. When a Communist party official in Hungary gels the boot, Radio Free Europe finds out and tells, over a 135,000-watl beam that probur the crannies of Soviet satellites. Radio Free Europe is run by the American-sponsored Crusade for I'rcodom. It gets its f u n d s Irom private donations. There arc no government strings attached and Ihfit's one of its biggest advantages. "Since we arc a private enterprise,' said one- official, ' we can hit below the belt and sometimes we do.

"The people coming out tell us that we have reached them a n c driven the Communists wild." Tu prevent detection, Czechs have started Radio Free Europe listening clubs, where members spciul one hour each turned in on FIFE. Then they meet secretly and pool their information. Some UFE successes have feus (rated Czech Communist bosses. For example, Prague morning newspapers are quoted and re- bulled by RFE the same day the papers appear on the street, in the Czech capital.
