SUNDAY. APRIL 10, 1966


The Russian soviet of Uzbek,
touching Afghanistan's border and
extending almost to the Caspian
Sea, has been transformed from a
medieval to a modern society in
the last 40 years through the con-
centrated efforts. of the Russian
government, three University pro-
fessors have reported.
Profs. William K. Medlin of the
history department, Finley Car-
penter of the psychology depart-
ment, and William M. Cave of the
sociology department recently fin-
ished their report on the role of
education in a planned program
of social change such as the pro-
gram carried out in Uzbekistan.
Before the period of Soviet in-
fluence, there was not one higher
school with a modern educational
curriculum. -By 1959 there were 31
schools enrolling over 50,000 stu-
dents in classes such as Russian
language, mathematics, chemistry,
and military education. By 1960
75,000 people had been trained in
the technical sciences where pre-
vious to Soviet control only skilled
handicraftsmen had existed.
Logical Place
Carpenter said that the Soviet
Union was a logical place for their
study since "the government runs

all." He also noted the advantage
of extensive available documenta-
tion, for the Russians document
well their long-range plans such
as their Five-year Plans.
The soviet of Uzbek was chosen
for study because it had a strong
Islamic tradition and because an
intellectual and scientific elite
there was becoming significant,
the report stated. Carpenter re-
marked that Uzbek education has1
now "leaped centuries in 40 years."
The United States Office of Ed-
ucation provided funds which were
dispensed by the University for
eight trips to the Soviet Union in
the past seven years, Carpenter
said. He mentioned the study was
uniquely interdisciplinary.
Carpenter pointed out the po-
litical significance of the improve-
ments made in Uzbekistan. The
changes serve as a "propaganda
outlet . . to persuade new Afri-
can states." He said it was hard
to identify the representatives and
students from Africa in Asia with
any one opinion of the changes,
though. Some people whom the
researchers talked to were "friend-
ly" to the changes, others were
hostile. Carpenter commented that
some Africans felt they were dis-
criminated against in housing.

Neighboring Afghanistan also
has been influenced by the Soviet
control in Uzbekistan, Carpenter
said. The two countries have a
similar culture and ethnic make-
up. Carpenter has heard that
"young educated people in Af-
ghanistan have been pressing for
radical changes." However, he
thinks it "doubtful that you can
get immediate impact without
such control (as the Russians
Uzbekistan's educational system
has broadened opportunities to
earn a living, Carpenter noted.
Children in this "traditionally re-
ligious country" are no longer
urged to follow their fathers' oc-
Carpenter remarked that the
Russians have undertaken "a
large task in changing a culture."
They have imposed an atheistic
orientation on a population that
was 99 per cent Moslem, he noted.
One factor that facilitated the
changes is the willingness of the
youth to adopt new ways. Car-
penter found the Russians "suc-
cessful in influencing young peo-
ple. The Russians are practical)
psychologists with an insight intoj
human motivation."

In the previous Uzbek schools'
children had to memorize long
passages from the Koran in Ara-
bic, a language they did not us-
ually understand. The schools did
not have a large enough capacity.
Under Russian control there is
no physical punishment, and free
lunches are provided. There is
often a playground connected with
the school. Carpenter said the
Soviets "utilize schools for getting
what they want."

The schools and youth organi-
zations are designed to bring the
youth away from the parents. The
Russians "insure an interesting
time for the students," Carpenter
said, "and utilize science as com-
petition to religious belief."

But the first speaker after him
mentioned Stalin. While saying
"there would be no return to the
past," the speaker claimed pride
in the Stalin era.
Then followed a parade of
speakers calling for a crackdown
on writers who criticize Soviet

was along the modernized Stalinist
lines of the recent trial of two
writers, Andrei D. Snyavsky and
Yuli M. Daniel.
Resistance to these lines showed
up in the Ministry of Culture. Its
head, Mrs. Yekaterina A. Furtseva,
spoke relatively mildly. The min-
istry's newspaper censored the
tough remarks out of its daily
congress diary.
The same speakers who called
for a cultural crackdown also
showed concern over Soviet youth.
They have failed to become Com-
munist believers to the extent the
party would like.
Kosygin reported on economic
prospects after Brezhnev had
quickly surveyed the field. Some
differences in their two approach-
es seemed to support theories
among foreigners here of difficul-
ties over economic problems.'
The main announced purpose of
the congress was to approve di-
rectives for the nation's 1966-70
economic development plan.
After Kosygin had explained the
outline which was made public
Feb. 20, he said the plan itself
would not be ready for four or five
months - far along in"the first
year that it is supposed to cover.
Many congress speakers blamed
Khrushchev, without naming him,
for causing economic difficulties
with his erratic orders. Kosygin
blamed agricultural failures, a
failure of labor productivity to rise
fast enough, more defense spend-
ing because of Viet Nam, and fin-
Ially Khrushchev.

Under the ousted premier, "eco-
nomically unjustified targets were
set which could not be fulfilled,"
Kosygin said. So some targets for
1970 have been cut, he added.
Kosygin did not mention that
the party program adopted under
Khrushchev in 1961 still contained
higher targets for such things as
electrical output in 1970 than his
new plan directives contained. Nor
did any delegate mention that
party rules say a congress "re-
views, amends and approves" the
