East Germany is Country of Variety By Hubert J.Erb BAUTZEN, East Germany (AP) — What is East Germany like, the other Germany carved out by victor powers from the ruins of Hitler's Third Reich? It is a land of myriad lakes and streams, sandy soil, a crowded Baltic sea coast in the north and dark green forests and hills in the south. It is not as rich or as populous as West Germany but in the summer sun soft green fields give way to picturesque towns and cities such as Bautzen, near the Czechoslovak frontier. But the quiet can be deceptive for here in Bautzen, in an old prison, are held many of the political offenders whose only crime was to want to run away. The name of this Germany is the German Democratic Republic, criss-crossed by an autobahn net originally built by Hitler to move his legions but which b/ought the Soviet He'd Army and Communist rule rolling in from the East. Party officials call it "our Republic" and "a farmers' and workers' state" but it is the farmers and workers who most represent the dividing wall in Berlin and the mined death strip that bars the way to West Germany. In the jargon of the day, water and all belong to all the Tlmai Herald, Carroll, la. f\ r\ W«dn«day, March 24, 1976 A «J people and industrial smoke belches from "the people's own factories." East Germany is also a place where people live and die, hope and dream, work and pray, are industrious or lazy, where they brag a little, proud of their recovery from war and defeat and Russian reparations. No less than the West Germans, East Germans love to eat, stop everything for coffee and cake at four, try to be fashionable when they can, go abroad when they can, dream of vacations in a hot sun that will burn them brown. Their cars are not as powerful as those of the West Germans, and cost twice as much, but when an.East German has one, he will drive it as fast as it will go, just like his cousin in the West. v This is an ancient place — Bautzen 'and Weimar to the West are 1,000 years old — a remarkable place, a place still underpopulated because three million people "voted with their feet" and went west before the wall went up in 1961. spurgeons Precision Tailored DRAPERY SALE or Unlined 30 •A OOFF Reg.
