anxious than I for a reading of John Gunthers side Russia Today recently off the Harper Brothers Press I had the same interest in the work that any person interested in world affairshas plus a couple of consideiajiioris not shared by anybody else Foremost of these the fact cthat the Intourist interpreter who served him for just short of two months was the same Zoya Kurancheva who served1 me arid my Iowa colleague Willis 0 Pat ton our time in Moscow early last year In the Gunther book it runs 550 pages with its appendix on personalities andrits bibliography that flaxenhaired housewife is mentioned specifically a number of times In numerous other places Ithought I could detect a reflection of her background in formation or views Zoyas a clever and able Com munist believe me The same can be said of nearly all Intour ist more accurately described as guides I think Under her guidance the Ameri can visitor sees just about what she wants you to see THIS WAS TRUE with respect to Earl Hall and its true with re spect to John GAinther And ij anybody thinks hes deluding himself The appearance of freedom to explore and scruti nize Russia is much greater than the V At least a ing my

was deemed by the editorial board of that con cern to be too late with my of fering and by one vote I was informed Its our my letter rejection stated that the reading publics interest in Latin America has been pretty well sated by John Gunthers volume Some of my colleagues on that factfinding mission to South America were highly critical of the Gunther interpretations But I found them to bealmost with out exception in harmony with my own Ho was playing the role of reporter so was I Myfriends wanted the facts glossed over hi interest of good will And that brings me back to In side Russia Today My first gen eralized observation would be this In cases where John Gun ther and I looked at the same tangible object behind the Iron Curtain we got almost precisely the same image the same im pression as it were But when it came to dealing with the intangibles the things we couldnt see or put our hands on the things for which we had to take some Communists word we parted company in many
