U.S.S.R. Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Revolution Thi

is Year

Visit To Russia
Offers Mixture
O Modern, Old
Over 12,000 Americans
Expected To Tour Soviet
For 20th Anniversary
More than 12,000 American tour-
ists are expected to tour Soviet Rus-
sia this. year to watch that coun-
try celebrate its 20th anniversary of
the revolution, which brought the
establishment of the S.oviet state.
Last year 9,000 visitors were enter-
tained.
Russia is getting to be known more
and more to American tourists as a
place where the modern is mixed with
the old. The Soviet Union tells its
visitors proudly about the facts and
figures concerning the new apartment
building just around the corner, rath-
er than about how a little boy saved
the beautiful cathedral from the en-
emy several centuries ago.
To Begin May Day
This year the Russians are plan-
ning a group of celebrations to com-
memorate their industrial era and
advance. May Day will sound the
beginning of the extensive festivities
planned for the anniversary of the
days of Nov. 7 and 8. The principal
activities are to be staged in Moscow,
Leningrad and Vladivostok, which
form the centers usually of most in-
terest for tourists. However, every
city, town and hamlet throughout
Russia and Siberia is making exten-
sive preparations for its own little
celebration under the socialistic sys-
tem.
Moscow at present is in its second
year of the new 10-year plan of re-
construction. The little, winding
streets are being made into wide,
beautiful boulevards; heavy traffic is
being eased with the construction of
subways; rickety, old buildings are
being torn down and new, scientifi-
cally sanitary structures are being
put up.
Tourists Laud Progress
Similar modernization is going on
in Leningrad, Kharkov and many
other cities and towns. Visitors to
Russia who had toured the Soviet
Republic 10 years ago have said that
they are astounded at the remarkable
progress being made.
People who are interested in co-
operative movements in their local
towns in America will be interested
in the system of factories and stores
in Russia. The middle man is almost
unknown to the Russians. Most of
the concerns are governmentally op-
erated and are run without consider-
ation for profits.
Yet with all the modernization
and development of science, Russia
represents a veritable happy hunting-
ground to the seeker of the ancient
and the mellowed. One of the most
