U. S. Embassy Staff
In Moscow Assailed
By Resigned Official
ly th« Associated Pros*
BERLIN, April 17.—Armond D.
Willis, erstwhile American informa
tion officer in Russia, says members
of the American Embassy staff in
Moscow “are building their reputa
tions and their careers on being
Russian haters.”
TTiis, Mr. Willis declared here last
night, was one reason he resigned
the post in Moscow he had held
since last September. He said an
other was that staff members had
objected to his releases. He was
Interviewed on his way home.
(In Washington, Lincoln White,
State Department press officer,
said Mr. Willis was ordered home
for dismissal March 20. He'said
this order followed February cor
respondence between Ambassador
Walter Bedell Smith and As
sistant Secretary of State Wil
liam B. Benton, Mr. Willis’ su
perior. An offer of transfer to
another European city was re
jected by Mr. Willis, Mr. White
added.)
“Yoi* can’t be in the Moscow Em
bassy 5 minutes before you hear
some vicious crack about Russians,”
Mr. Willis said, referring to the
staff as “a bunch of pixies.”
‘‘I think that most of our diffi
culties with the Embassy staff were
caused by the fact that my wife and
I were just two ordinary guys find
ing a lot of average Russians who
wanted to know us Americans bet
ter, who wanted to get along with
us Americans as friends and who
liked us. * • •
“Information I was releasing was
going contrary to the beliefs of the
American Embassy, namely that
Americans and Russians can’t get
•long together.’’
Mr. Willis said Embassy secre
taries all censored his copy.
(Information from Moscow
was that the reported dispute
came to a head over Mr. Willis’
report on a trip to the Ukraine.)
Mr. Willis was born in Danville,
111., once was a Northwestern Uni
versity administrator living in
Evanston, 111, and in the war served
62 months in the Navy, becoming a
Military uovemment omcer.
He left Moscow by air yesterday
with his wife and their two chil
dren, Arthur and Leslie. The chil
dren had attended Russian schools.
U. S. Marriage Age Lowest
Contrary to popular belief, the age
of Americans at the time of their
marriages averages lower than that
of people in most other countries.

'Stolen' Traffic Motorcycle
Found Hidden in Thicket
Somebody pitched Traffic Division
Patrolman Albert J. Senes’ motor
cycle down a 20-foot ravine early
today while the policeman was at
tending to a traffic violator, causing
all sorts of police activity until the
machine was found four hours later
only a few feet from where the
officer left it.
Police suspect that pranksters hid
the motorcycle shortly after 2am.
on Massachusetts avenue N.W. east
of Ward Circle, where Pvt. Senes
had parked it. It was found in a
thicket-covered ditch near the spot
at 6:30 am.
Pvt. Senes, who spent 18 months
in the Aleutians with the Navy, said
he left the motorcycle parked to
escort Miss Mary Benton Gore, 26,
of the 2100 block of Massachusetts
avenue N.W. to No. 8 precinct. She
vu charged with falling to keep
to the right, he said, and he had
to drive her station wagon to the
station house because she had no
permit with her.
When he came back 20 minutes
later the motorcycle was gone. All
city and nearby police were alerted
and Pvt. Senes was already'filling
out embarrassing forms when the
vehicle was found.
Chevy Chase Citizens Told
Of Nazi Re-education Need
The Chevy Chase Citizens’ Asso
ciation last night heard why plans!
for a “long-range policy” dealing
with the re-education of the peo
ple in the occupied areas of Ger
many and Austria is considered
necessary by the Allied Military
Government.
Maj. William A. S. Dollard of the
Re-education Branch of the War
Department told the group Ameri
cans “cannot afford to turn their
backs on what might be our last
chance to show our way of life
to the people of Europe.”
He told how in Germany the
Americans allow a free press to
flourish—something the Germans
hare not seen for a long time. He
also told how, in the American sec
tor of Berlin, his group had to
rebuild completely the school sys
tem, which was comparable to that
of the city of LoS Angeles.
Col. Peyton G. Neritt, adjutant
general of the District National
Guard, asked that the group make
plans to adopt and sponsor a unit
of the Guard, which is being re
organized. He said it is hoped there
will be 40 units in Washington, with
a total complement of 4,000 men.
The meeting was held in the
Lafayette School, Northampton
street and Broad Branch road N.W.,
and was conducted by Charles G.
Lueck, president.
G. U. Regent to Speak
The Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, re
gent of the Georgetown University
School of Foreign Service', will ad
dress members of the Organized
Reserves of the District at 8:30 p.m.
Friday in the Interior Department
