18 North Westchester Times, Mt. Kisco, N. Y., April 24, 1958 AFS Committee Makes Plans For Housing 90 Students Most of the 39 Chappaqua fam­ ilies who were hosts to American Field Service foreign students last July are looking forward to re­ ceiving more of the young guests in their homes this summer. The A.F.S. committee met Tues­ day morning at the home of its chairman, Mrs. Philip F. 1 Mygatt of Hardscrabble Rd., to make pre­ liminary plans for housing the 90 students who will be in Chappa­ qua July 18 through July 22. Last year the group numbered 72, and 10 offers of hospitality had to be turned down because all students had been spoken for early in the summer. It is expected there will be no difficulty in finding the re­ quired number of hosts for the four-day period in view of the fine impression the students made wherever they appeared last year. The group consists of foreign students who have spent the cur­ rent school year in high schools throughout the United States. They will be spending their final few days in the Greater New York area after having been taken on a two-week bus trip to see more of this country before returning to their homelands. Present plans call for the ar­ rival of the young people in Chap­ paqua on Friday afternoon, July 18; a day at A.F.S. headquarters in New York on Saturday (trans­ portation provided by A.F.S.); a picnic on the Mygatt estate on Sunday; and a dance at the Mount Kisco Country Club Monday night. The group will leave by bus for New York Tuesday morning. Host families last year found their young guests well-mannered as well as bright and stimulating. Many are still in correspondence with the students. A recent letter from a Japanese girl to her Chap­ paqua hostess said, \You remem­ ber I told you the principal cause of death of children from 15 to 19 in Japan is suicide because they fail their examinations. I've been studying like mad for the college entrance. Maybe I'll fail; maybe not. But I, having seen so much how other people live, will not think of suicide.\ This reaction of one student to her year in the United States would seem to jus­ tify the American Field Service in its belief that only good can come from the student exchange pro­ gram. Last year's Chappaqua hosts were Mrs. Francis Bartoccini, Mr. and Mrs. Court Benson, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Buckley, Mr. and Mrs. Robert G. Calder jr., Mr. and Mrs. Edward P.

Russians & Regime Different, Digest Editor Tells Students Eugene Lyons of Bedford Rd., Chappaqua, senior editor of the Reader's Digest, told a group of students at Hunter College last week that they must remember \to make a clear distinction be­ tween the peoples of the Soviet Union and the Communist r egime under which they suffer.\ Mr. Lyons, who was a foreign correspondent in Moscow during the thirties, spoke as a trustee and the found uig president of the American Committee for Libera­ tion. He explained the Com­ mittee's functions as basically di­ rected towards promoting the eventual liberation of the \en­ slaved people of the USSR\. The American Committee, among other things, supports Radio Lib­ eration's round-the-clock broad­ casts to the Soviet Union in Rus­ sian and 17 other Soviet langu­ ages. Asked about the significance of the sputniks durning the question period. Mr. Lyons declared \I lived long enough among the Rus­ sians to know that they take great pride in their scientific accom­ plishments, but that in their hearts they resent the fact that the outside world is giving the credit to their communist oppres­ sors. \They are living under a regime which thev never chose, which was imposed on them bv a tiny minoritv and which is being maintained these 40 years by phy­ sical terror and the terror of the mind, namely propogander\ Mr. Lyons observed. \Now in its 41st year, the Kremlin dicatorship still does not enjoy the free allegiance of its subjects. It continues to maintain its power by police methods and massive agitation. A government which maintains hundreds of thousands of full-time agitators to sell its system to the people obviously does not believe the people are already sold. \At the moment, compared to the worst Stalin years there is relative moderation, but 1he Kremlin has not yet dared to permit anything resembling free speech, free press and free assembly. As long as the people have no role in choosing their rulers, the swing of the pendulum from full terror to half terror is interesting but in my view not as significant as people assume. \A similar period of moderation marked the thirties; and even then wishful thinking was rife through­ out the non-Soviet world, the same muddleheaded confusion towards Soviet intentions so apparent to­ day. Actually, as we know, that earlier period of moderation proved to be the prelude to the bloodiest, most reactionary years in Russian history—the years of the big purges.\ Mr. Lyons also commented on the \remarkable and brilliant per­ formances given by the Moiseyev Dance Co. at the Metropolitan Opera House. Declaring that \there was nothing Soviet or Com­ munist\ about them, he added that the Russian company was providing New York audiences with music and choreography in the best Russian tradition, reflect­ ing the genius of the Russian people which was there long before the Communists came on the scene and will be there long after they have disappeared, \which I trust will be soon\. Mr. Lyons' audience was a groun known as the Students for the Promotion of American Ideals. Route 9. Harmon CRoton 1-8700 fit NOW-ENDS SAT.
