Russians in Reich
Friendly, but Reject
Writers' 2 Requests
With a group of other Amer
ican correspondents, David M.
Nichct of the Chicago Dotty
News has just completed a
10-day tour of the Russian Zone
of Germany. His journey took
him via Dessau, HaUe, Merse
burg, Weimar, Jena, Erfurt, Leip
zig, Dresden, Chemnitz, Goerlitz
and Berlin.
By David M. Nichol
foreign Correspondent of The Star and
the Chicago Daily Newt
DRESDEN, Germany, June 14.—
diers and civilians in the Russian
occupied zone of Germany.
For 10 days, with six other Ameri
can correspondents, 1 toured the
region behind the so-called “Iron
Curtain.” No similar group had
ever been given such broad opportu
nities.
it was an eye-opening experience.
At each stop in the trip, which took
in the most important cities of the
three provinces, we were asked to
specify what we wanted to see. And
our requests were not always diplo
matic.
We talked with an endless va
riety of both Russian and German
officials, we saw opposition party
leaders in private—at the sugges
tion of the Russian provincial com
mander—and we saw the sites of two
immense German aircraft plants—
Junkers at Dessau and Slebel at
Halle.
Persistent rumors of the type
which find ready listeners in Berlin
and elsewhere have suggested that

these plants are now working for
the Russians. We now know they
are not, and will not be.
What machinery could be re
moved has been taken as repara
tions. What the Allied bombers did
not destroy the Russians have
blown flat. They now are salvag
ing bricks and other building ma
terials. Even adjoining airfields
have been cut up into garden plots.
At Erfurt, where the Russian zone
adjoins that occupied fiy the Ameri
cans, we saw a dispersal camp for
German war prisoners returning
from Italy, Prance and Britain to
Eastern Germany. The men are
held only two days there and then
moved along to camps nearer their
scattered homes.
There is no barbed wire, and for
1,000 prisoners there are only a
handful of guards.

optical works, 90 per cent stripped
for reparations, but now returned
to the “stiftung” or foundation that
has operated it for the last 50 years,
in contrast to most other sizable
plants that are now nationalized.
Gas Plant Make* Fertilizer.
Near Merseburg we visited the
vast Leuna works which produced
the bulk of Germany’s synthetic
gasoline. It is owned now by ,a
Soviet corporation, and portions
that can be operated are producing
fertilizers.
We were the first* foreigners to
visit there since the Russians took
over last summer. We were even
permitted to photograph it.
At Goerlitz we had an oportunity
to view one of the absurd results of
World War II. There, the Neisse
River boundary between Germany
and Poland cuts squarely through
the middle of the city. We found its
single bridge carefully controlled
with traffic limited to two or three
persons a day, but no other unusual
border precautions.
On the entire trip ony two of our
sometimes not so diplomatic re
quests were turned down, and both
with an almost Oriental effort to
avoid a flat “no.”
At Weimar we asked to see the
notorious Buchewald concentration
camp, now be|ng used as barracks
for Russians. After two days of
stalling, we were informed that our
orders did not permit visits to Soviet
military installations.
J.X1C11, fcuum ul V/iwuuiiw nc oobcu
to see the Czech border region
around Oberschlema. There have
been many reports that the Rus
sians are mining pitchblende there
from which to extract uranium for
atomic energy experiments. These
seem to have some foundation be
cause pitchblende exsits near the
neighboring Czech city of Jachy
mov (or Joachminsthal).
We met with the bland explana
tion that the three German border
counties had been under quaran
tine since June 2, when several cases
of typhoid were discovered there.
An issue of a local paper for June
5 included the quarantine notice.
A similar measure had been taken
far 10 days last February, the com
mander explained, when typhus ap
peared among refugees streaming
into Germany.
Germans tell lurid tales of thou
sands of persons working feverishly
in that area, of a ring of guards
and of extreme secrecy. Chemnitz
was only 20 miles away. There was
no sign there of unusual activity.
The nearest approach to an “in
cident” on the whole journey was
the detention of the Chicago
Tribune's German driver who took
the car one night to visit his mother
here. The modern automobile with
United States Army plates aroused
suspicion. He was released when
properly identifled.
“We have taken special care since
Lt. Gen. Lucius D. Clay’s car was
stolen,” one officer explained.
Everywhere we found the Rus
sians almost painfully eager in pro
testations of friendship, of peace
ful intentions, of determination to
make a peacetime reality of the
alliance beeun in the mutual needs
of war. Even the vodka treatment
was milder than in the past.
“May our guests drink as they
themselves desire," it was said fre
quently. To one who has been
through it before, there could be
little better evidence of good will.

Here is one of the most attractive and impressive homes in Chevy Chase,
situated between the Columbia and Chevy Chase Country Clubs, built
of stone by the owner-occupant and beautifully landscaped; rear garden
partially terraced with flagstones.
In our opinion, as custom builders, this house is as well built as any we
have ever seen and could not be duplicated today for the price being
asked of $32,500. It will carry about $20,000 first trust and the owner
does not require all cash above this figure.
The house consists of large living room with Fireplace, dining room, center
hall, kitchen and pantry on the first floor; second floor has 4 bedrooms
and 2 baths; third floor has one bedroom and a large storage room. The
screened porch runs the full depth of the house over the two-car tandem
garage, which has an entrance into the basement. It is heated by oil
and has been entirely redecorated. Possession about July 15.
