A disparate group of people filed into
Room 200 Lane Hall yesterday at noon.
The bearded visiting professor was
followed by the clean-cut Political
Science major carrying a yellow legal
pad, and he, in turn, was in front of an
older couple carrying brown-bag lun-
At 12:05, the crowd of about 75
became silent and all eyes focused at-
tentively on the speaker, New York
Times foreign correspondent Flora
Lewis, the author of several case
studies on Polish politics, recently
returned from a trip to Eastern Europe,
which included Poland and the
U.S.S.R. While'in Poland, she reported
on the workers strikes for The Times.
"THE MOST IMPORTANT insight
into recent developments in Poland was
given in a London newspaper that said,
'Marx's irresistable force, the working
class, has finally met Lenin's im-
movable object, the Communist Par-
ty," the thin, gray-haired reporter
told the crowd.
"By striking, the working class told
the party, 'You're doing it (running the
country), wrong and we're tired of it,"'
.she continued, as she lit another
Lewis called the ruling Communists
in Poland a "stupid, incompetent,
badly-managed, badly-organized group
of people." She blamed the party's
mismangement for what she called the
"bankruptcy" of the Polish economy.
ALTHOUGH CRITICAL of the way

management, Lewis was quick to point

was talking to the new Minister o0
Finance, a man who was supposed to be
confident and experienced," she ex-
plained. "When I asked him why it was
so difficult for the Party to give in to
worker demands, he replied, 'Well, of
course, we've had no experience in
negotiation; it's the first time for the
An important ingredient in the suc-
cess of the strikes was the fact that
there were no intellectuals in control
Lewis said. She said the initial linkage
between all the striking groups in
Poland was made by the Workers'
Social Defense Committee formed
from the core of the working class.
"They worked out of an apartment in
Warsaw. People around Poland sent
word there if they went on strike," she
Lewis also noted that workers
refrained from drinking vodka
throughout the strike. "That reflected
an extraordinary. amount of discipline
and solidarity," she said, adding that
alcoholism is a serious problem in
A question-and-answer session
followed Lewis' talk, which was spon-
sored by the Center for Russian and
Eastern European Studies.
