She is Miss Gundega Amols, who with her mother, stepfather and brother landed in Boston 2 months ago. They are now making their home in Greene. The 19-year-old blond, with her many war experiences, hopes to become a dentist. She is currently taking preliminary scientific courses at Teachers colleg'e, along with the other required freshman courses. Flees to Austria Gundega and her family lived in Latvia until September, 1944. They experienced both the Russian occupation in 1940 and the German occupation one year later. When the Russians threatened to reoccupy Latvia in 1944, the family fled to Austria, where they stayed one year before being moved to the displaced persons camp at Esslingen, Germany. Life at the camp was hard, according to Gundega, even though it was in the American zone of Germany. "The living conditions were bad. It would be difficult for a person in America to imagine how it was," Gundega declared. The Americans helped the Latvians set up a good school system in the'camps, with nursery schools and trade courses as well as regular classes. Thanks to her instruction in the camp, Gundega has a good background in languages, the social sciences and mathematics In the physical sciences she has had courses in biology, zoology physics and chemistry. Classes Different "My chemistry class here is different," she said. "In the camp we could have no experiments— no equipment." Actually she is finding her routine different. She finishes her classes in the morning, instead of studying for 7 solid hours as she did in the camp. In the afternoon she returns to the George F. Newman home where she is living while attending Teachers college. Asked what impressed her most about Teachers college, Miss Amols said. "The instructors are very kind and friendly. I think the students here ask more questions." With her persistent and intelligent approach, it is a safe bet that Gundega Amols will know most of the answers when she completes college work for a career in her new country.
