MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JULY 29 1961 Paper Consists ol Two SectionsSection Ont AssocUted Press United Frew tntenwttonaj Full Lease No 251 Children caught in cold war Problem for W Germany By ERNEST WEATHERALL New York Herald Tribune News Service in the tidal wave of refugees flooding the camps daily are hundreds of bewilde red children clutching their precious dolls or favorite they have left from their homes in Communist East Ger many The children are too young toj understand why they have been torn from the security of familiar surroundings and now must share a crowded barracks with stran gers But how can parents explain to little minds why they have left their homes their land every thing they have worked for dur ing a lifetime to flee to this strange refugee camp IN A BRAVE effort to keep things normal the children play with old donated toys in makeshift nurseries or attend improvised kindergartens taught by volunteer teachers at the camp But the long trek nad the new life is just beginning There is an airplane ride to West Ger many Exciting for some terrifying to others And at the end still another camp More crowding More waiting It is only when years have gone by that the children of refugee families will realize why their parents have left the Communist world behind to flee to the free world When an East Germany family decides to make that one way journey to the West the secret is confided only to the older chil dren And even doing this is risky Like the Hitler youth the leader of its Communist counter part the Free German youth also urges children to spy on their parents It is not uncommon to read in the Communist press about youngsters being given awards because they have turned in their parents as enemies of the State ONE COUPLE from Leipzig and their three young children who arrived at Marienfelde West Berlins busy reception center for East German refugees told their children they were going on a vacation on the Baltic Sea This was true since Kurt had permis sion from the factory and local police to leave the city But the Welke family had to change trains in East Berlin Instead of continuing their journey they slipped over to West Berlin The children keep asking when we are going to the sea side Kurt Welke explained They also want to know when they are going home and sleep in their own beds again It will be a long lime before they have a bedroom of their own From Marienfelde they will be flown to another camp in West Germany where they will wait for a place to live in the househungry federal republic I know we will have to stay in barracks for many many months the father said but the children will not grow up under the Communists ACCORDING TO camp officials at Marienfelde children have often given away their escaping parents just by their presence If the East German policemen spot a family on the subway or the elevated railway going to West Berlin they are irrimcdi ately questioned So families split up The father takes some of the children the mother the remain der One large family decided to make their risky trip to freedom on installments The mother mak ing two trips took four children and left them at the refugee camp nursery in West Berlin while their father waited with the two other children in the East Everything worked fine until the last trip when the Communist Peoples police questioned the their papers were not in arrested them Then with the Communists holding the mother and two chil dren as hostages the father re turned to West Berlin and tear fully picked up the remainder of I he children

resumed FURTHER EAST in Tunisia French paratroopers still held the city of Bizerte against bitter Tunisian opposition Across the ocean the U N Security Council was discussing possible further action France had ignored the councils earlier demand that French troops be pulled back to their original po sitions inside the base The De Gaulle governments attitude is that the Bizerte af fair concerns France and Tuni sia alone and only they can settle it The French see Tuni sias new appeal to the Security Council as an attempt to inter nationalize what they regard as a purely bilateral affair
