we did not commit any crimes."
'GOP camag drytricks'
hurt Democrats--MankiewCz

NEW YORK () - Consumers
got more bad news yesterday.
Food experts said dairy and
bread prices would keep going
up in coming months and pre-
dicted that this year's Thanks-
giving turkey will cost twice as
much as last year's.
The news came at a briefing
sponsored by the Super Market
Institute, a nonprofit trade as-
Panelists included George Me-
hren, a former assistant secre-
tary of agriculture who now
heads Associated Milk Producers
Inc., the largest dairy farm co-
operative in the country; Ro-
bert Wunderle, director of eco-
nomic research of the National
Broiler Council; Richard Lyng,
another former assistant secre-
tary of agriculture who is presi-
dent of the American Meat In-
stitute; and William Mead, chair-
man of Campbell Taggert Inc., a
baking company.
Mehren said milk production in
the United States has been de-
clining for 11 months and is now
about 5 per cent below 1972
levels. He predicted there would
be a 10 per cent increase in
the price of fluid or drinking
milk between now and January
Mehren also said that because
of decreased milk supplies, there
may be scattered shortages of
some items. 'I am very doubtful
that the Associated M i I k Pro-
ducers will have butter to sell in
December," he said.
Wunderle said supplies of
chicken and other poultry pro-
ducts were generally ample to
meet demand, but said turkey
productions wasabout 5perecent
below last year. He said every-
one who wanted a turkey for

Thanksgiving will be able to get
one, but added that prices will
remain about 35 cents a pound
more than last year, an increase
of 100 per cent.
Mead, whose Dallas-based com-
pany has 50 subsidiaries operat-
ing 75 plants throughout the Unit-
ed States, said the over-all price
increase in bakery products this
year will be about 20 per cent. .
About 5 per cent of the increase,
he said, will come in the last
three months of the year.
All of the experts blamed gov-
ernment controls,. export polic-
ies and rising food and grain
prices for the hikes at the retail
levels. None offered much hope

of any change in the immediate
Mead said that although this
year's wheat crop was a record,
increased demand,' particularly
overseas, will leave little grain
in storage. "Unless it rains just
right, unless we have a bumper
crop, we're going to be out of
wheat in this country," he said,
looking ahead to next year.
Lyng provided the single note
of optimism. Echoing other in-
dustry sources, he said meat
supplies are up and prices are
down. He predicted beef and
pork would remain at or below
freeze levels through the next
month, then might rise slightly.

WASHINGTON (P) - Sen. George McGovern's
forme'r political director Ftank Mankiewicz testi-
fied yesterday that Nixon campaign dirty tricks
contributed to the Democratic party's 1972 wounds.
"What was created by the sabotage effort
was an unparalleled atmosphere of rancor and
discord within the Democratic party." Mankie-
wicz told the Senate Watergate committee.
Republican witnesses have claimed that the
anti-Democratic sabotage added little to President
Nixon's landslide victory over McGovern.
But Mankiewicz said Sen. Muskie's backers
told him they blamed McGovern for anti-Muskie
sabotage in the New Hampshire Democratic presi-
dential primary.
He said false leaflets were distributed during
the crucial California primary, leading McGovern
and Sen. Hubert Humphrey to suspect each other
of a "vicious campaign of distortion and vilifica-
tion." He said this may have led to Humphrey's
attempt to claim some California delegates won
by McGovern.
He said a fake, insulting telephone call to
AFL-CIO President George Meany may have con-
tributed to Meany's decision to withhold the giant
labor organization's backing from McGovern.
Mankiewicz said the purpose of the sabotage
seemed to be to ,"create within the Democratic
party such a strong sense of resentment among
the candidates and their followers as to make unity
of the party impossible once a nominee was se-

"At that, the effort seems to have been most
successful," he said in a prepared opening state-
During the panel's morning session, another
former McGovern aide, Rick Stearns, accused the
committee of a partisan, political attempt to smear
the McGovern campaign.
The 29-year-old Harvard Law School fresh-
man fenced with both Democrats and Republicans
on 'the committee, which had prepared a subpoena
to serve on him before his lawyers said he would
come voluntarily. He complained he had been call-
ed fewer than 24 hours earlier.
Then he blamed unnamed members of the
committee staff for "innuendoes and slanders" and
of "unfounded attacks on Democratic integrity."
Without actually saying so, he obviously re-
ferred to reported attempts by Republican com-
mittee investigators to turn up evidence of Demo-
cratic dirty tricks.
Stearns was called specifically to testify about
use of some McGovern telephones last year to pro-
mote an anti-Nixon rally at the Century P 1 a z a
Hotel in Los Angeles Sept. 27.
Stearns says he doesn't recall approving use
of the phones. But Wednesday the former head
of the McGovern campaign in Southern California,
Frederick J. Taugher, said Stearns knew about
plans to use the phones and approved of them.
After Thursday's session the committee planned
to take a two-week recess, resuming public ses-
sions Oct. 30.

STOCKHOLM (Reuter) - The
first of the coveted 1973 Nobel
Prizes was awarded yesterday
to three scientists who studied
the birds and the bees to redis-
cover clues to man's sexual be-
The 125,000 dollar award for
physiology or medicine w a s
awarded jointly to two Austrians,
Professors Karl Von Frisch and
Konrad Lorenz, and Nikolaas Tin-
bergen, a Dutch professor at Ox-
ford University, England.
Sweden's Karolinski Institutet,
in its citation, said the three
scientists revitalized study on
animal behavior and showed how
early experiences l could deter-
mine the later life patterns of
both animals and man.
VonFrisch studied theastrange
language of the bees and dis-
covered how the insects by
waggling dance movements -
showed other bees the location:
of sources of honey. The quicker
the waggling movements, the
closer the honey lay, the Aus-
trian professor discovered.
Lorenz and Tinbergen both work-
ed chiefly in the field of bird
behavior. The first showed how
an animals sexual attitudes laterj
in life could be determined by
early experiences.
Tinbergen studied the cries of
seagulls in a series of experi-
ments which led to important
findings about the birds court-
ship and mating procedures, the
citation said.
The three researchers carved
out a unique position for them-
selves in the field and were in-
strumental in founding the new
