(AP) - Simas Kudirka came to the United States expecting to find his new country wracked by starvation. That was what propaganda in the Soviet Union told him to expect, the 44-year-old Lithuanian seaman who was freed from a treason sentence said Wednesday, his first full day in the United States. He said he wanted some firsthand information, so he went shopping to see if there was a shortage of food and to find out whether the quality of food in this country was poor. "That certainly is not the case," said Kudirka, whose Soviet prison diet was such that his teeth began to rot. Soviet propaganda depicts the United States as gripped by massive unemployment and starvation and its workers as under the thumb of factory supervisors "who want to squeeze out the last bit of blood from workers for their personal gains and who, with automation ... want to get rid of workers," Kudirka said. He attempted to escape to the United States four years ago only to be returned to the Soviets by the Coast Guard. He was declared a U.S. citizen while in a Soviet prison. He is temporarily staying with one of the families who worked for his release to the United States. Kudirka, his wife, two children and mother arrived Tuesday from Moscow. Still groping with adjustment, he said he has to "find out what I'm going to do for a job, what my wife is going to do for a job, about school for my children and where we are going to live." Kudirka said in an interview conducted through an interpreter that the Russians were stopped twice from killing him Realtors Board discusses current trends, problems Current trends and problems in the real estate profession were discussed at the October meeting of the Millwood Board of Realtors held at the Holiday Inn in Hope. Leading the round-table discussion were Pat Honeycutt and Arthur Strech, newly- elected president and vice- president of the tri-county organization, composed of realtors and associates in Hempstead, Howard and Nevada counties.
