L. Curtice
To Receive,
First Check
LANSING (P)-The older brother
of Harlow Curtice, General Motors
Corp. president, will soon draw his
first pension check under a plan'
negotiated by his brother and the
United Auto Workers.
Leroy J. Curtice, 68, retired Aug.
31 as a paint inspector at they
Fisher Body Plant.
Said the elder Curtice, who has
belonged to the union for all but
two or three years:
"I think the union has done
very well for the employe. They
have done a lot of good. Maybe
they have done some harm. I
would say they have done more
One thing he's not entirely
happy about, Leroy said, is the
size of his pension-which will
amount to a monthly payment of
$2.25 for each year's seniority.
The younger Curtice also said
he would like to see the pension
plan liberalized so that a retired
worker's widow would continue re-
ceiving the payments as long as
she lives.
His younger brother's last re-
ported salary was $775,400 a year,
with a take home of $121,689., He
will reportedly retire, at about
$68,000 a year.
Despite the gap in their pay
checks, Leroy wants no part of his
brother's job.
"I wouldn't want his job. I
wouldn't mind the salary. Too
many headaches on that job, your
brain works 24 hours a day, even
in your sleep."

booklet about contact lenses or drop in for a free demonstration.

U.S., Russia May Exchange Students
By MIKE KRAFT y - r iY

'Exchanging students with Rus-
sia next summer is a real possi-
bility," said Dewitt C. Baldwin,
director of Lane Hall.
Baldwin returned this fall from
directing a European tour which
included two weeks in Russia.
There, as a representative of a
number of American youth organi-
zations, Baldwin confered with the
Committee on Youth in USSR, and
officially proposed that the United
S ates and Russia exchange some
5 to 75 students next summer.
Russia has already established
similar programs with France and
"The Russians seem very anxious
to arrange student tours, the Lane
Hall director observed, "but al-
though the Communists received
the suggestion favorably, they said
a major problem would be clear-
ing the red tape involved in ad-
mitting their students to the
United States."
The only source of difficulty is
the Russian social stigma against
fingerprinting; a process they re-
quire only of criminals, but which
the United States requires of all
visitors, Baldwin said
"We explained quite frankly to
them that this is a government
regulation dating back to the war
and is required of everyone. How-
ever, this problem should easily
be solved."
Russian Pride
Reflecting a moment, Baldwin
speculated that perhaps this was
another example of the Russian
pride which members of the tour
found prevalant throughout the
USSR. "They have a strong de-
sire to prove that they're just as
good as we are."
"Provided we were someplace
they considered safe, instead of a
possibly wired hotel room, the
Russian people were extremely
frank and willing to talk.
"We had no trouble conversing
with them," he said, explaining
that besides the guide two of thir-
teeih members of his tour spoke
fluent Russian and several others
were well versed in German. Nine
of the tourists were college stu-
"They asked the Russians ques-
tions even I was too embarassed

"But still," Baldwin reminisced,
