tions such as "Spartak" or "Bu-
revestnik."
"I've learned a lot about the
Russians' views on gymnastics,"
said Loken, "and it has been a
wonderful experience."
An important fact that the Rus-
sian performers stressed is that
gymnastics is not only a display
of strength and vigor, but also of
aesthetic 'qualities.
They pointed out. that well-co-
ordinated exercises on the equip-
ment is closely related to ballet,
where harmony and rhythm are
essential, and have found that
music is a great help to the per-
son performing. They have dem-
onstrated to the world that gym-I
nastics is one of the most grace-
ful and spectacular sports. {
"The Russians' extreme exact-
ness and confidence is evidence of!
the fact that they put in many
more years training and compet-
ing than our boys,' said Loken.
"Unfortunately our gymnasts
don't havethe time for this."
Loken indicated also that it
would be a help to American gym-
nasts if they had greater oppor-
tunities for meets with teams
from other countries.
Compares U.S.-Russia
When asked how some of the
top American teams such as Mich-
igan, Illinois, Southern Illinois,
and Penn State would stand up
against the Russian team, Loken
said: ''We'd give them a good
fight, but I doubt if we would
win."
He expressed tempered confi-
dence that in the next four years
before the Olympic games in Ja-
pan, the American gymnasts
would be able to develop a team
to challenge the Russians.
Coach Loken was also very
pleased that the Russian team
was able to come to the U.S. be-
cause of the great social value of
cultural and athletic exchanges.
This exhibit at Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, was one of seven exhibi-
tions that the' team has given
here as part of the State Depart-
ment's cultural exchange pro-
gram.

Loken had several opportuni-,
ties to speak to the Russian visi-
tors and said it was extremely
enjoyable, finding all the men and
women friendly and glad to ex-
change pointers about gymnastics
and life in their country.
He went on to mention that. he
hopes many more of these ex-
changes will take place between
our two countries, because of their
great benefit at easing cold war
tensions.
Next year the AAU is planning,
to have top American gymnasts
travel"through the Soviet Union
for our part of the exchange.
