Family OTTAWA (CP) The sto- rybook romance of Mary Knittel is going to have a happy ending after all, A tele- gram has arrived at her Wa- terloo, Ont., home from Rus- sia saying, "Visa granted, ar- riving later this month." It means that her childhood sweetheart from the 1930s Ivan coming to Canada 'tu Marry Mrs. Knit- tel. And it will mark the end of a marathon diplomatic ef- fort to have the two reunited. Mrs. Knittel talked by tele- phone today to Robert N. Thompson Deer) before leaving for work in a Waterloo hospital. He said "you can just imagine how she felt." Mr. Thompson had helped her apply pressure in every diplomatic soft spot to get her long-lost boyfriend to Canada. Just recently she had" a let- ter from Robert Ford, Can- ada's ambassador in Russia, encouraging her not to give up hope. SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS Tlie story begins in the early 1930s when Alary and Ivan, both of German origin, went through school together in the Ukraine. After complet- ing school they became en- gaged. When the Nazis arrived, Mr. Neufeld joined the Rus- sian army, and Mary Knittel was evacuated to Germany. By war's end, Mr. Neufeld was presumed dead and Mary Knittel emigrated to Canada. She married in 1951, had two sons and became a laboratory technician in Waterloo. Her husband died in 19M. Meanwhile, Mr. Neufeld had survived the war and had gone through a Russian uni- versity to become an account- ant. He assumed Mary had died in the war. He never married. In 1969 he came to Vancou- ver to visit a brother and through friends, by a thou- sand-to-one chance, he was told that Mary Knittel was liv- ing in Waterloo. He went there immediately. "It was just the she recently recalled. "He cams in, and it wasn't a bit strange. It was so happy." Mr. Neufeld considered re- maining in Canada, but rather than become involved hi an embarrassing political situa- tion, he returned to Russia and applied for permission to emigrate. He didn't get it. In the last two years, Mrs. Knittel had pleaded with everyone who might help. She wrote to Prime Minister Tru- deau, to Mrs. Trudeau, to Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitch- ell Sharp and to countless offi- cials. She even arranged to visit Moscow when Mr. Tru- deau originally planned to be there in October, that Russian officials would be more lenient toward the application. But Mr. Trudeau postponed his trip at that time, and Mrs. Knittel went alone. She was unsuccessful in getting per- mission to marry Mr. Neufeld there, in hopes BBS would in- crease the chances of emigra- tion. She tried, unsuccessfully, to plead directly with Russian Premier Alexci Kosygin when he visited Canada last Octo. her. "I'll never give she said at the time. "I hope they understand and will help." "I k n o w some of the younger people don't under- stand am 50 now and he s I just want him so much here. He's the loneli- est person ia SB world."
