Slavic Department Members Relate Soviet Experiences

According to their itinerary, the
delegation will spend May Day in
Moscow, where Prof. Dewey is
looking forward to "a big celebra-
tion with lots of red flags."
Farrell Tells of Activities
Presenting a paper at the Con-
gress, visiting friends in Lenin-
grad, and studying at the Univer-
sity of Warsaw were the activities
of Prof. James Ferrell during his
two trips to the Soviet Union.
Referring to misconceptions
about the United States, he said
that they number "rather less than
I'd expected. However, the people
do regard America as some sort of
incredible paradise," he said.

A native of Kharkov, Prof. Assya
Humecky lived in the Soviet Union
until 1943, did forced labor in
Austria, and then went to Italy
and England. She received her
B.A. from a Connecticut college
and M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard
University.
"I would not attribute the Slavic
proficiency in science and mathe-
matics to, the school system," the
Slavic high school graduate said.
"There were outstanding names in
these fields before the Revolution."
Americans Have Misconception
Americans often approach her
with the misconception. that stu-
dents in the Soviet Union are
forced to follow whatever course of
study the government advises, she
said.'
After two months in Poland and
one month in the Soviet Union,
Prof. John Mersereau found the
people "a little stupid in their
nationalism."
"I had rather the idea that the
whole system (Communism) was
sort of cracking apart, and I found
that this was not true. The only
fissures in the whole master sys-
tem were a few evidences of dis-
satisfaction with the lack of in-
formation from abroad," he re-
ported.
A Russian student snce 1942,
Prof. Mersereau asked his guide,

whom he got to know quite well
after 30 days of constant com-
panionship, what one change he
would effect. The guide replied
that there was too much of a
discrepancy between the salaries
of the highest officials and the
workers.
Mersereau Indifferent
Worn down by two months of
the material and political condi-
tions in Poland, Prof. Mersereau is
"indifferent to returning" to the
Soviet Union. "The people there
hate every minute of life under
the Soviet system; they live on
starvation diets and have rags for
clothes. I didn't meet one pro-
Communist the entire time I was
in Poland," he said.
,Also attending the Congress last
summer was Prof. Thomas Win-
ner.
"My contact with the people was
the most fascinating part of the
trip," he said. "I didn't expect
them to be as anxious to talk to a
Westerner."

More buxom blondes with shipwrecked.
sailors insist on Camels than any other
cigarette today. It stands to reason:
the best tobacco makes the best smoke.
The Camel blend of costly tobaccos has
never, been equalled for rich flavor and
easygoing mildness. No wonder Camel
is the No.1 cigarette of all!
