NEITHER EAST NOR WEST:
Czechs Seek Political Moderation
By The Associated Press
PRAGUE, Feb. 14-Czechoslovakia,
which geographically and politically
is the bridge connecting Russia and
the Western world, is striving with
some promise of success to be neither
East nor West.
"The task for the Czechoslovaks
is to be themselves, adapting ideas
suiting their purposes, no matter
'what their origin," Prime Minister
Zedenek ' Fierlinger said recently.
But the process of adaption has_
swung the reviving republic pretty
far to the left. Many political lead-
ers protest against the impression
that the country is within the zone
of overwhelming Russian influence.
Such an impression is due to several :
factors, the most important probably
being that Czechoslovakia's chief mil-
itary alliance is with Russia. Most
citizens, including some who are
"western minded," hold that the al-
liance is good because Russia is re-
garded as an effective guaranty of se-
curity in the event Germany becomes
strong again. If there is a "next
time," Russian armies can be ex-
pected to pour in promptly and
Other factors include the decision
to pattern the new Czechoslovak
army after the Russian model, the
country's sweeping program for na-
tionalization of industries, and the
energy with which trade with Russia
is being prompted.
The things that are precious-the things that
are everlasting! Choose with care from our
selection of blue-white matched diamond and
wedding ring sets, and single engagement rings
a# $42.50 and up, including tax.
The nationalization program
brought conflict with some Western
interests, causing Westerners to
speculate on how far the surge to
the left will go. Industry minister
I chumil Lausman says 78 per cent
of the country's productive capac-
ity will become state enterprises.
The plan is to compensate the own-
ers of industries on the basis of 1938
valuations. Czechoslovak owners will
get government bonds and currency
in a manner to be fixed by laws still
to be enacted. The citizens probably
will be obliged to accept government
Is is different with foreign owners,
and there are indications there may
be disagreements. The Czechs are
sensitive to the possibility of reprisals,
such as are foreseen in the proposed
American legislation to withhold
loans from states "confiscating" for-
eign holdings. Another concern was
whether countries feeling themselves
unfairly treated might withhold raw
The general impression was the
British will be the most exacting
in their claims, with the Americans
more disposed to make adjust-
ments. Britain gave official no-
notice she expects fair compensa-
tion paid in sterling, and the Czecs
replied they will pay just prices.
While some features of nationaliza-
tion look like adoption of the Soviet
pattern, other aspects of the recon-
structed state are wholly unRussian.
There are no collective farms, and it
has been stated definitely there will
be no nationalization of the thous-
ands of small shops.

Run, Vice-President Robert P. Briggs
said. "Seven or more" other dorms,
none of which has been previously
occupied, will be available for the
Spring Term, if needed.
At least 600 students can be"
housed in these dorms, the vice-
president estimated. Each room is'
fully furnished and centrally heated.
The University will place a resident
counsellor in each dorm.
A fleet of 20 buses will transport
students on frequent schedules, be-
tween Willow Run and the campus,
12 miles apart, Vice-President Briggs"
explained. A cafeteria will be opened,
at Willow Run an a few days, he
Yesterday's action brought relief
to University officials who had been
sending out "regret notices" since
mid-January to all except formerI
students and Michigan residents be-
cause of crowded classrooms and in-
"Willow Run has become a very
satisfactory residential center for
University student veterans," Presi-
dent Ruthven declared. Before ar-
ranging with FPHA for additional
facilities; officals had consulted vet-
erans now living in the Village and
their reactions were generally fav-
orable, he said.
Married veterans seem especially
pleased, the President noted, to be
able to start housekeeping in a home
of their own. Housing officials at
the University say the dorms are
as comfortable and attractive as 75
per cent of the' permanent dormi-
tories in the country.
The University operates a com-
munity center, with a full-time so-
cial director and part-time assist-
ants at Willow Run. Stores, a church,
schgols, and theatre are convenient-
ly located in the Village.
