The fall is a kind of trough .n the film year between the lucrative and busy summer sea- son and the important holiday season. Most companies tend to iold back on major releases in the early fall. Trends in films are frequent- ly self-defeating, going .from a blockbuster success to a series of imitations that peter out in ooredom and low receipts. At least a temporary exception is the spate of pictures made for black audiences. EXPLOITATION Industry figures are frank hi describing these films as pa- tently exploitative in content and wildly exaggerated in char- acterization. An upgrading ap- pears to be in prospect in pic- tures with black characters drawn closer to life and meant to have a universal appeal.

HUNGRY BECOME HUNGRIER ROME (AP) The hun- gry countries of the world iell short of their goals in food production last year, while countries which had enough to eat produced sur- pluses, a United Nations re- sort says. Although the world's agri- cultural output rose three per cent, the increase was only one lo two per cent hi the un- derdeveloped countries, said the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. The goal, set by the United Nations, had been four per cent. FAO said the number of un- dernourished in the world showed no noticable change from the previous UN esti- mate of 300 million to 500 mil- lion. It added that there con- tinues to be a "widespread incidence of protein and ca- lorie malnutrition which, it is estimated, effects one-quarter to one-third of the population in many developing countries for which data are avail- able." The United Stales and Can- ada registered an annual growth of eight per cent, tha largest single gain in a year since 1958. FAO said the in- crease prohably enabled North America to reach the highest food production vol- ume in history. China fared well, FAO esti- mated, although its food out- put still fell short of needs. In the Soviet Union, farm output was unchanged, with bad weather reported. In Western Europe, the in- crease was six per cent; In the Middle East, three per cent and one to two per cent in the Far East. Latin-American food pro- duction showed a decline of about ose per cent. Draught in Cuba and unfavorable weather In Argentina were seen as major causes. Unmarked cars back on streets CALGARY traffic patrol cars ore back on city streets after a two-month layoff because statistical evi- dence shows they reduced seri- ous accidents, says Chief In- spector Howard Lcary of the police department's traffic div- ision. The "ghost cars" carry two plainclothes officers who look for impaired drivers, danger- ous driving, speeding and crim- inal negligence. In n period immediately pre- ceding first use of the cars, in- Jury accidents had rise lo more than 100 a month and there were DS many as five traffic deaths a month. The cars were on the road for a five-month period this year starting in February, and in- jury accidents declined stead- ily during the time to K in June. February was fatality-free and total fatalities for the first six months of 1072 dropped to 11 compared wilh 17 for the same period last year. The cars were taken off the road during the Calgary Stam- pede in July and stayed off un- til last week. Injury accidents rose to 74 in July and 134 in August.
