They returned to the Stales a year a .no, and for the past nine months, Tom has been studying the Korean laminate at Hie S'ale School of Far Eastern Languages.

Where .here aie mililiiiy i stablishmonts .heie aie American schools: in ilber places private schools were jrgani/cd often with Ihe parents lelping to gel them stail'd. Although they have enjoyed each country in which they have ived, Mrs Kruse. says she particularly liked Ceylon. The island is lovely, with many lea plant a- ions, and they wore able lo travel about it freely. In some places they lived in housing groups with other American and European familie-, but in Ceylon they had a large house unions the regular residents. On one side of them lived a Modern family, originally from Pakistan. The son. Faisal was Tommy Kruse's best friend but thev never saw the mother. She was an old-fashioned Moslem, living m purdah in which women are. extremely secluded. Their neighbors on the otlu r side were Tamils, whose forebears came from India. Another gnmp in Ceylon are the Singhalese and it was the friction between them and the Tamils that: caused the May riots of 1958. The Kruse family bad friends in both groups and most of them deplored the friction that suddenly grew up after living together peaceably for yeais. In all places she has lived overseas, Mrs Kruse has bad lots of household help, but this is a necessity there rather than a luxurv. Servants are by no means limilecl to the wealthy class. She said she found that because of the climate she could do only about hall' as much work as she could in the States and in turn it took two servants to do the work of one. All water had to be boiled, the floors kept immaculate, the houses .were big, and the Kruses did a great deal of entertaining in connection with his job. When asked if she found it hard to get along withoul help after coming back to the Stales, Mrs Kruse replied thai last year in Connecticut, she had an eight room house, did all her own work and enjoyed it. . After the Korean tour, the Kruse family will pr.pb.ably have a two year' residence--in-'Washington, for the U. S. Information Agency, usually assigns employees to the States after three overseas tours. By that lime', Carolyn and Tommy will be ready for high school and 'they can add United Stales schools to their cosmopolitan education. After lhat, although the Kruses say its much loo far ahead to plan, they may yet be able to try their hands at owning and opera- ling a newspaper. 6-A!gond (la.)
