Rumors Claim
Poles Intend
To Halt Trials
POZNAN, Poland. Oct. 6 -Humors
raced through Poznan to
day that the Polish government
plans to stop the trials resulting
lrom the June 28 "bread and free
dom" riots here. .
These rumors were based on
the belief that the Communist
government has been sorely em
barrassed by the bold and dra
matic testimony given by some
defendants against miserable liv
ing conditions, lack of political
(reednm and extortion of confes
sions by polite brutality.

world the complaints of people
who felt themselves oppressed
and obliged to fight for bread and
freedom. The government's em
