Police Diners Fail to Detect Phony Russian hall full of policemen failed to penetrate the disguise of a fake Russian general who made a speech, at an F.B.I. banquet last night. Introduced as "General Peodor chief of the N.K.V.D. or Russian security police, the phoney general brought tempers to the boil- Ing point with his disparaging re- marks on the American capitalistic system. He launched into a tirade against the F.B.I, for using "old fashioned hawkshaw methods" and hinted that an American policeman couldn't find a peach in Georgia.

Feed for Quality Secretary of Agriculture Ander- son told newsmen yesterday farmers could help save grain by .selling hogs at much lighter weights nnd by abandoning, for the time being, the practice ol' fattening beef cat- tle to the top grade. Cattle fall into four major grades choice, good, commercial and utility. The bulk: of the grain used to produce choice, or top grade, cattle goes toward putting quality on the meat rather than in adding addi- tional pounds. Choice beef has more fat about it, particularly a mixture of fat with the' lean, than the other lower grades. This additional fat con- tributes to the flavor of the meat. It naturally sells for higher prices than .the other grades. Lighter Hogs However, much of the extra fat on the .choice cuts is in excess of the quantity which average consum- ers -will eat along with the lean, of- ficials said. As a consequence, much of" this extra fat is left on plates and goes to waste. Officials said farmers already are beginning to market hogs at lighter weights, markets Hogs sold last week at principal averaged 267 pounds compared with 287 a year Anderson suggested further re- ago ahead of Lollar's throw which bounced oQ Rizzuto's glove.

The spokesman told a news conference that Sforza. said "the preamble to the treaty, freely signed by Russia, states that formal execution of the treaty would be a strong factor favor- ing Italian entry." The treaty went into effect September IS. ly to the advantage of Italy's pres- ent non-communist government.

Pilots said the flight would have meant "certain death" for the girl because the box would have been stored in an unheated compartment where temperatures high above the Atlantic would have been below zero. The girl gave the name of Doris von Knoblock, 21. Airport employes who became sus- picious and pried open the box top found her wearing only a shirt and underclothing. She hastily donned a sweater, stepped out and appeared a bit dazed but nonchalant. Wiiliam Waring of New York, op- erations representative for Ameri- can Overseas Airlines, happened to sit on the box and noticed Jt was warmer than others in the ware- house. German employes told him they thought they had seen the cov- er move during the night but were unable to believe their Army officials took custody of the girl.
