Thinly populated Siberia always has been a problem, but inducements also are keyed to the international political climate and the mood of the Soviet citizenry. Not only have there been incentives for people to move to the far north, but to Kamchatka, Sakhalin, and eastern Siberia, where China and Japan loom across the borders. Inducements vary according to the situation. They include higher wages, outright grants, long vacations, and building loans. Occasionally they have been as stark as choice between a prison sentence and forced resettlement or exile. Recently inducements have been reshuffled. It comes as a- surprise that Kaliningrad Province, where the Soviets presently are negotiating with a group of West German firms about the building of four giant nuclear power plants, is among the regions for which especially high incentives are offered. Kaliningrad oblast, which covers the eastern part of the former German province of East Prussia, is hemmed in between the Baltic Sea, the Lithuanian Soviet Republic and Poland. Although the westernmost territory of the Soviet Union, today it is one of its least known areas. Western Tourists are not admitted. There are no Germans left in the now Soviet parts of East Prussia. The fleeing Nazis evacuated the population. Only a few Lithuanians and Mazuric Slavs have remained. Resettlement of Kaliningrad Province is still not completed, There are fewer inhabitants than before the war, even though the Soviets try hard to attract prospective settlers. The climate is good, the soil fertile, and inducements offered until recently were only a little lower than for inhospitable Kamchatka and Sakhalin. But' Soviet settlers apparently still do not feel at home in Kaliningrad Province. "Too many generations of Germans are buried a recent emigre from the Soviet Union remarked. Although gravestones have been removed and cemeteries plowed up, people fear that in another war the Germans might try to come back. Chinese Premier Chou En- lai's retort to a European visitor, "I do not know a Kaliningrad; I only know Koehrgsberg; (the ancient German name of the province's capital) has made the rounds in Eastern Europe.

Here Tuareg nomads, all of them from drought and starvation in the next door country of Mali, eke out a pitiful existence. Named after a former French isolation hospital, Lazaret is run by the International-Red Cross. It is managed by one of those big, capable Scandinavians one finds so often on world relief projects. His name is Arnulf Tjugen of Bergen, Norway. "We just try to keep "them alive, on 850 calories or so per day.
