IN EAST GERMANY
The Status of Communism
Today-An I nterv ieW

The West -

They Run Together

Am

(Editor's Note: The -following is an account
of an interview with Peter Kalinke, an "East
German who was held in Russian labor camps
from 1945 to 1950 and has since resided in West
Germany, doing sociological studies of East
German and Soviet peoples. He is presently do-
ing graduate work in the sociology department
here.)
Do you think the average American has
a clear understanding of what Russian
attitudes are?
I don't think it is possible for the typi-
cal American to have such an understand-
ing today. It is difficultofor any person to
identify himself with human beings so com-
pletely separated from us.
Most information from Soviet Russia is
too exaggerated and merely serves to satisfy
the popular urge for sensational reading. We
must differentiate between this religion
called communism and the people we are
fighting against.
M * * *
Are there any significant differences be-
tween Soviet tactics used in Russia and
those used in Eastern Germany?
Yes. The structure of Soviet society in re-
gard to culture and economy is in sharp con-
trast to that of Eastern Germany, so brain-
washing tactics are completely different in
the two places. The Soviets started in East
Germany with strict laws designed to build
up the Communist and Socialist Unity Par-
ty which soon controlled the whole zone.
They brought Russian soldiers in but kept
them completely separate from the East
German people.
For several years the East German econ-
omy worked entirely for Russia. Whole
factories along with their specialists were
taken to the USSR but the Soviets didn't
understand German psychology. The Ger-
mans were very bitter about POW treat-
ment.
The Soviets found it would not work to
arrest anti-Communists, especially those
among the middle class. They soon realized
that the standard of living of East German
workers was so high that the class would
not rebel against the middle class and weal-
thy capitalists. And, in 1952, the East Ger-
man government realized their entire sys-
tem had been wrong. Communists found a
desperate need to win the support of the
intellectuals and large middle class, a situ-
ation they ihad never faced in the USSR.
* * * *
What reasons do you see for the June 17
revolt in East Germany?
My opinion is that one country cannot
project its government and political party

system into another country. The norm sys-
tem of production will work with the Slavic
mentality but German mentality will not
accept it. German factory bosses often lie
about how much work they turn out in order
to save themselves from the ire of higher
officials. Machinery and equipment pro-
duced is roughly turned out. Even optical
equipment is now very poor. The norm sys-
tem depresses the Germans who are used
to private, small factories run on a person-
al basis. They don't like the public economy
system. Small private businesses and farms
still exist and now receive more official sup-
port than ever before.
East German Communist officials are
idealistic puppets of Moscow, not straight
politicians and they have difficulty rec-
onciling themselves to the party line.
The German people are tired of the dry,
organized, dictatorial system. They want
individuality and cannot be forced into a ste-
reotype. Czechoslavokia, Hungary and Po-
land, also industrialized before the war,
were not successful experiments either.
The island of Berlin is still by far the most
important city in Germany. For there East
Germans can compare their low living stan-
dards 'and lack of freedom with opposite
conditions existing in West Germany. There
was no organized plan for the June uprising
as Communists declared. Knowledge of it
spread through RIAS, the West German ra-
dio station, which is listened to by millions
of East Germans. The subjected people be-
lieved that the time had come and expected
their revolution to be successful. But this
was not the last uprising. It was the be-
ginning of a fresh realization of freedom's
meaning for the East Germans. Every day
makes the people there more bitter against
their government. Although officials liberal-
ized conditions temporarily, they are now
tightening up again and there is no signifi-
cant difference between conditions today and
before the June uprising.
. .
Is the deification of Soviet leaders today
as strong as it was during Stalin's life-
time?
The deification of Stalin was and is very
strong today. However, I don't believe the
winner of the Malenkov-Molentov struggle
will be deified because there is not the same
opportunity today for seeming heroism that
there was for the leader of a revolution and
one in command during a successful war.
Today Russia is torn by struggles between
militarists, economic powers and high politi-
cians.

Behind Locked Doors --
Preparedness

Its Resources
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a
series of weekly articles analyzing the problems
faced by the Western section of the United
States.)
THE PEOPLE flocking to the West in
search of a new life were (and for that
matter still are) confronted with the prob-
lem of best utilizing natural resources, a
problem which must satisfactorily be solved
if this area of the nation is to continue to
flourish and grow.
To the tourist travelling over the large
tracts of land lying for miles unbroken by
any signs of population, land appears to
be the least worry in the settlement of the
West. However, this is not the case. Al-
though the natural land mileage be large
enough to house the entire American pop-
ulace, relatively little of it can support
any population whatever.
Hundreds of square miles are uselessj
wastes. Deserts and semi-parched tracts
speckled the entire area. The lack of water
makes these areas useless in supporting hu-
mans-not even marginal farming is pos-
sible in states such as Nevada, Utah, Arizona,
New Mexico and Wyoming.
As a result, the exodus from other see-
tions of the country has for the most part
been directed toward the Pacific states-Cali-
fornia, Oregon and Washington-where the
water situation is slightly better. However,
California is built on a prayer-the hope
that its underground water supplies will not
run ,out. In certain parts of this state the
settled populace watches helplessly as the
underground water supply becomes more
acute. The citrus fruit growers servicing
many parts of the nation with their produce
constantly fear the rains will not come.
But the state has done much to alleviate
this problem. Recently, a huge man-made
irrigation, power and flood control system
has been completed in the heart of this
lush area.
Water is now being pumped from the
northern part of California where rainfall
is relatively heavy to the southern and
dryer sections where most of the growing
areas are located.
Oregon and Washington are less fortu-
nate, however. Although blessed with greater
rainfalls and rivers capable of irrigating
large tracts of land and producing water
power, flash floods continue to act as a detri-
ment to any permanent progress.
The rampaging Columbia River poten-
tially can support the development of tre-
mendous industrial growth, but little fore-
sight has been exercised in this respect.
Although dams are being constructed at
present along the river, an asinine lack of
imagination and the proper amount of
political narrow-mindedness in Washing-
ton have reduced these dams to the sole
purpose of controlling floods.
Engineers have known the techniques of
building all-purpose dams for several years
now-dams which not only are capable of
contiolling floods but equally important, of
producing power.
However, the last Congress is an effort to
save money has cut appropriations on a Co-
lumbia River dam beyond the point where
it can be built to harness water power. Ac-
tion such as this saves the taxpayers money
temporarily only to waste it in the future.
Other stumbling blocks in the way of
proper development of the West are the
paucity of imaginative planning ideas at
top levels and the resitancy of govern-
ment to intervene to produce a dynamic
economy for the area.
The government seems content to let de-
velopment take its haphazard and not al-
ways certain course. It has constantly been
demonstrated that no single state in the
West is capable of financing development
projects which are sorely needed. It has also
been satisfactorily shown that the economy
of the West is an inter-economy with one
state naturally relying on other states for

its economic survival.
The government, caught in the whirl-
pool of anti-socialistic hysteria and glut-
ted on a partially eclipsed theory of "let-
business-do-it" is beginning to make less
and less of an effort to make certain the
area is developed to its fullest potentiali-
ties.
While land is plentiful and water scarce
there is no reason in the world why a higher
economic standard cannot be reached if
only the government takes the interest and
acquires the desire to exploit the potential-
ities of this promised land.
-Mark Reader
B30TH CRITICS and Congressmen could
develop more fully the art of distinguish-
ing. Congressmen must learn, for examnle,
that liberals are not Comnunists, and Com-
munists are not socialists, and all Commu-
nists are not atomic spies. They could even
train themselves to separate disagreement
or flat error from disloyalty and fundamen-
tal protest from subversion. Critics must
realize that all Congressmen probing sub-
version are not McCarthys, that legislators
can often be guided to responsible conduct
by responsible criticism, that civil liberty is
not a license to unlawful acts or deceptive
techniques, and that all Congressional in-
vestigations into political operations are not
"witch-hunts."

TOSSED AROUND like a football this week, the proposed Paul Bun-
yan trophy for the winner of the annual Michigan-Michigan State
rivalry continued to receive no comment one way or the other from
director of athletics Prof. Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler. Suggested by
Governor G. Mennen Williams, the trophy would represent the figure
of Michigan's legandary Paul Bunyan standing on a map of the
State. What concern Paul Bunyan has with football remains a ques-
tion.

"SOUVENIRS," shouted the men of Michi-
gan. "Open the doors."
"If they don't let off steam this way,"
said the Dean, "it might turn into some-
thing worse."
But It didn't. Unlike the panty raiders
of a year and a half ago, the little mob
of about 300 men who invaded a theater
and charged up observatory hill Friday
night didn't break a door or capture an
undergarment.
The police and the dean agreed that the
crowd had been fairly orderly.
What had happened to the spirited men
whose exploits in the spring of 1952 were
reviewed on front pages throughout the na-
tion?
The answer lay in the old boy scout

motto, which surprisingly proved useful
Friday night in dealing with mature Uni-
versity students.
"Be prepared" is the motto, and the Uni-
versity officials and local police were.
The alert was flashed. The mob was com-
ing. Housemothers raced to prearranged
battle stations. "Lock the doors. Close the
windows. Tell the girls to keep their heads
in."
The quiet riot met with defeat because
the University was one step ahead of the
potential raiders nearly all the way.
It is not to the discredit of Michigan men
that no real damage was done Friday. The
spirit was there. It was just that the Uni-
versity got the doors locked in time.

ROMAN HOLIDAY, with Audrey Hep-
burn and Gregory Peck
WHEN THIS FILM was shown at one of
the European film festivals this sum-
mer, some connoisseurs thought it was a
shame that Director William Wyler had
wasted his time with such standard mater-
ial. They missed the fact that Wyler had
turnedhout something which has been in-
creasingly difficult to make lately-a first-
rate comedy. "Roman Holiday" is sophisti-
cated without being completely slick; it is
warm without being "childlige"; and it con-
tains one of the most sparkling "personality"
performances seen in recent years.,
The sheer presence of Miss Audrey Hep-
burn in fact so overshadows all other con-
siderations that it is hard to think what
the film might have been like without her.
In this, her first role as a star, she is an
affection-starved princess on a 'European
tour, arriving in Rome at the end of her
youthful patience with pomp and circum-
stance. To know that Gregory Peck is an
American reporter charged with covering
the princess's visit to Rome is to know
the rest of the story. Knowing it, how-
ever, does not account for the way Miss
Hepburn, with the assistance of Peck and
Eddie Albert, is able to put it across.
From scenes of bedroom farce to motor-
cycle slapstick, she is in total command.

At the State . . .
EAST OF SUMATRA, with Jeff Chandler#
and Marilyn Maxwell.
FIRST LET it be knownthat this film was
made far, far east of Sumatra-about
California, I should judge. Further, the re-
maining components have an equal amount
of truth.
Jeff Chandler is a tin-mine manager, a
poorly adjusted Hemingway type with
past loves and future problems. His task,
as it is revealed early in the picture, is to
scrape some tin out of an insignificant is-
land in the aforementioned geographical
location. Anthony Quinn and a group of
happy natives own the island and don't
want to lose their tin.
Mr. Chandler is quite resourceful, but all
the same he gets accused of burning down
the local rice harvest, and he and his men
and Marilyn Maxwell (extraneous) spend
the rest of the picture looking into the
wrong ends of poison-dart blowguns.
The central problem thus changes per-
ceptibly from that of tin-digging to escap-
ing from the jungle. Since the suspense in-
volved-for there is no possible logical
way out-is the only attractive element in
the production, it wouldn't quite be cricket
to give it away here. But be assured, logic
or no, there is a relatively calm ending.
One disturbing factor, however, which I
noticed merely because I attended the Sat-
urday matinee with the rest of the children:

Politics & Investigations
To the Editor:
IN HIS letter to The Daily Mr.
George Denison has expressed
an attitude which is commonj
among 2 yr. olds toward academic
freedom.
I do not question the right of

government investigating commit-j
tees to exist. The key issue is theF
type of men heading the commit-
tees and the methods they use in'
their work. These chairmen should
be Americans- first and politiciansI
second. They should not try and,
make political capital out of the'
"academic freedom question." Yet,
some men have used the issue ofj
communism as a method to keep;
their names before the voters. I
refuse to support the work of a
committee (as Mr. Denison sug-
gests we should support their1
work) headed by one whose questt
for publicity overshadows his own
sense of right and wrong. Thesej
politicos have operated on the the-j
ory if you expand the truth
enough, people will believe you,j
worship you, and vote for you.
