Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 26, 1962, Mason City, Iowa Daily Newspaper fer CITY GLOBE HOME EDITION VOL 102 newspaper that makes all North I owans United UiwrutUwal roll Wlrct MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY M W2 10o of Two war in IVI j Algerian power fight Another Commie festival Not many are big successes By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON At least 400 American students will attend the Communistsponsored World Youth and Student Festival for Peace and Friendship which opens in Helsinki on Friday and extends through Aug 3 With a little luck the student kaffeeklatsch the Communists are putting on in Helsinki could backfire again The last of these world youth festivals put on in Vienna three years ago may have represented on balance a Red plus but it was hardly the whole hearted peacelhroughjoy success its sponsors had hoped for Reading perhaps that the awe struck Austrian government could be counted on to forestall any un toward incidents the Communists allowed the youth schmoos to be held for the first time this side of the Iron Curtain The last time the show had been put on close to the edge of the Curtain in 1951 in East Berlin the supposedly dedicated young Mari ists from Communist countries took advantage of the proximity and skipped over to the West and political asylum The Vienna bull session started ofE with a boycott by mostAus trian youth groups and nonCom munist newspapers On the open ing day 13 street fights between festival supporters and Austrian and other antiCommunists were reported Uniformed poljcemen were called in Western newspapers which anti Communist youngsters tried to distribute at a press freedom sem inar on July 31 were destroyed by festival guards US and British youths carrying antiSoviet pla cards in the mass parade through Vienna on Aug 1 were beaten The physical violence was hard for some of the less determined Iron Curtain delegates to swallow There were collateral k advan tages to the West Delegates from Asia Africa and Latin as well as the Soviet block boys and girls heard a Washington nuclear engineer publicly rebut a Soviet professor who disparaged US nuclear efforts at a festival lecture And a good many of the delegates from behind the Curtain got their first good full look at the rewards of democratic politi cal institutions Helsinki apparently was chosen for its closeness to Russia Also because of new rail and air lines delegates can be brought from India Asia and Southeast Asia without being exposed to decadent but comfortable nonCommunist countries The Indonesian group for example will go by ship to Red China then by train through that country and Russia Most of these junkets are pack age deals put together at low rates and delegates are offered an extremely cheap lossleader tour of Soviet Russia as lagniappe The whole show is estimated to cost Russia between million and million The bulk of the US delegation Is being furnished by the US Festival Committee which is un derstood to have the blessing of the sponsors Paul Robeson Jr headed the official US group at Vienna But just as three years ago dissidents are making the trip under the auspices of the In dependent Service for Information with headquarters in New York This outfit and others at Stan ford and Yale have been inform ing delegates of the Communist nature of the festival and coach
