Russians Facing Education
Poblems -- Pof. Lohwater
By TAMMY MORRISON
A University mathematics professor said last night Russian
teachers are contending with the problems of expanding enrollment
and lowering standards which are similar to those of American pro-
fessors.
'Prof. Arthur J. Lohwater, who last summer attended the third
All-Soviet Congress of Mathematicians in Moscow as a guest, said
many mathematicians he spoke to there expressed alarm over the
way Russian academic standards are dropping as a result of the
Kremlin's drive to turn out more technically trained personnell,

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.. B -
Sen. William Knowland (R-Calif.)
and Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-
Minn.) yesterday advocated Uni-
edNation diplomatic and econ-
omic measures against the Soviet
IUnion if all other steps fail to end
Soviet intervention in Hungary.
The two senators, both members
of the United States delegation
to the United Nations, stated their
views at a luncheon of the UN
Correspondents Association. Both
stressed that they were speaking
for themselves only and not for
the delegation.

port for a full General Assembly
airing of the Russian charges
against the United States.
Sen. Knowland, Republican
leader in the Senate, declared at
the luncheon that the whole fab-
ric of peace was endangered by
the Soviet Union's refusal to com-
ply with UN resolutions calling for
withdrawal of its forces from
Hungary and for the entry of UN
observers.
He expressed hope that the
Kremlin might yet abide by the
decisions once they learn from
their diplomats around the world
"the adverse effect" their position
is producing.
If this does not happen, he said,
"I would favor sanctions."
Sen. Humphrey proposed that
the UN Assembly should first ask

tend school and offered additional

"A good student is a gem there,"
he said. "He's given a full oppor-
tunity to develop his talents in-
stead of being ground out in the
production line."
Saying the reception Americans
received was "most warm," Prof.
Lohwater commented, "The Red
Chinese received the coolest wel-
come."
One reason for this, he said, was
the Russians' fear that, as Red
China becomes more industrializ-
ed, it will try to expand into part
of its land now held by Russia.
Reprimanding the YR's for
changing his talk's title to "What's
What in Russia," Prof. Lohwater
said he felt his three weeks there
did not qualify him as an expert.
He was in Moscow when the
Poznan riots occurred. Very' little
about them appeared in Moscow
newspapers, he said, but there
was some radio coverage.
"The radio called the Polish
rioters criminals who broke into
Jail in an attempt to destroy their
criminal records," he said.
"But then it said something
pretty revealing--that 50 tanks
were restoring order and 150 more
were on the way,'" he concluded.

Walkout Continues in Face of Guns
As Protest Against Kadar's Policies
BUDAPEST (A-Thousands of Budapest workers decided
yesterday to strike until the Soviet-imposed regime of Pre-
mier Janos Kadar releases their imprisoned leader.
There were reports that the Kadar regime had been vir-
tually supplanted. and the real authority was being wielded
on the scene by Gen. Ivan Serov' chief of the Soviet Union's
secret police.
Defying the guns of Hungarian soldiers and police, the
workers walked out only a few hours after the end of a 48-
hour general strike called to*
protest Kadar's dictatorial
policies. That strike caused atH u g ra
least six deaths in clashes with

diplomats who visited Hungary
estimated that about 25,000 Hun-

more than seven weeks ago. This
was the first estimate of any off i-
cial nature. Previous estimates of
Hungarian killed have ranged be-
tween 20,000 and 50,000.
The new strike paralyzed nearly
all the factories in the Industrial
11th District of Budapest.
There was a possibility the strike
would spread to large plants else-

south of Budapest. There workers

government invitation for new
negotiations in the tank-sur-
rounded Budapest Parliament

Racz was held for giving incorrect
information to Western reporters.
Western reporters drove up to
the Bajolannis factory late this
afternoon. They were immediately
surrounded by hundreds of the
plant's 6,000 striking workers.

porters.

Special To The Daily
Detroit - Hungarian rebels will
be able to oppose Russian tanks
until February, a University ot
Budapest student said in a speech
at Wayne University last night.
Speaking to a small student
audience, George Linzi related
happenings in the revolution torn
country since the first demonstra-
tion on Oct. 23.
Linzi replaced Istvan Laszlo,
student council leaders at the Uni-
versity of Sopron. Laszlo's talks,
which are being sponsored by the
United States National Student's
Association, were cut short when
he was requested to return to Aus-
tria by his fellow students who
hope to re-establish the Univer-
sity in Hungary.
Address Cancelled
Linzi's address at the Univer-
crowd of approximately 600 had
gathered at Rackham Amphi-
theatre.
Commenting on the revolt, Lin-
zi said Hungarian students were
angered by Soviet academic con-
trol at the universities. Russian
language and Marxist theory
courses were required for all stu-
dents.
Student discontent provided the
catalyst for the deep economic
and social discontent lying latent
in Hungary, Linzi continued.
Aid Promised
Student revolutionaries were
encouraged by promises of aid
from Radio Free Europe and1 Voice
of America. Students and workers
never would have had the courage
to revolt if it weren't for this en-
couragement, the 21-year-old
Hungarian said.
Deep dissolution and feelings of
betrayal were felt by the students
and workers when no aid from
the West came.
Linzi said no hope of aid in form
of manpower was expected buti
was thought that weapons would
be supplied.
Russian Tanks
That it was just a matter of
time until the Russian tanks would
overpower the unarmed mobs was
the general feeling in Budapest at
this time. A deep bitterness kept
the Hungarians fighting a hope-
less battle. Whole families were
wiped out by the Russians. Lin-
zi's father was tortured and killed
and his 16 year-old brother de-
ported by the Russians.
At the time of the revolution a
few weapons were available to
over tou t rbels by the Hunar-
ia amywhich wa ageysm
