CHIPAAAN FUNERAL SERVICE C. B. CHIPMAN, PHONE BURT, RES. 924-3X31 BURT - Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Ulses, rural Burt, received an interesting letter from their son, Gene, who had been attending school at the University at Vienna, Austria, during the month of June, where he was studying German. The weekend of July 22-23, he and three college friends went to Budapest, Hungary. Following are some interesting excerpts from Gene's letter home: "Hungary seems much like Iowa, as the land is fairly flat and there were a lot of large fields of wheat and barley. It was harvest time and they were threshing with large machines. "Budapest is very old and appears to be a poor city. The streets are very old and there are not nearly as many cars here as there are in Italy and other countries. The people themselves are quite different and are not v.ery friendly. Some o! them speak a little German, however I don't think it is taught in the schools as the government tries as much as possible to do away with Western influences. Their language is quite a barrier for tourists as it is so different. Hungary is a communist country and one must undergo a lot of checking at the borders. Passports and visas are checked very thoroughly and there are guards with machine guns all along the border where you enter Hungary. THE B. A.

Taylor, Executor Charlie Quinn, Auctioneer, Bancroft, Iowa (61-62 63) "I don't think Hungarian people can get permission to leave the country. Young married couples are forbidden to leave. The priest here in Vienna said he couldn't go there if he wanted to, even though Hungary is 75% Catholic. Young people aren't allowed to go to church and we noticed when we attended mass Sunday, the church was filled with older people. The priest was a very old man. It is hard to say just how much the church is restricted by the communists. "Budapest is a sort of pretty city as the Danube River flows through it and we saw many pretty parks. Our meals in the hotel were very good. We met a young Yugoslavian youth 18 years of age on the bus, who now lives in Milan, Italy. He and his family got permission to leave Yugoslavia eight years ago, but said his father was imprisoned • many times before they left, as he was a chemical engineer -, and the communists wanted to convert him to communism and when he refused he was thrown into prison. "My roommate in Vienna was from Syria and he, too, was studying German. He plans on entering "med" school this fall, but finds he cannot enter a medical school there as they wouldn't accept his diploma alter 12 years of school in Syria, so he plans to attend school in East Germany. "I saw in the German papers today that they were having terrible riots in Detroit and New York. They had a picture of a National Guardsman standing guard with gun and bayonet and it sure doesn't look good for the United States, especially to the Europeans as they don't understand the racial situation in the States. I think the paper probably played the story up big to down-grade the United States." On Aug. 3, Gene and his three colleagues left to tour Germany, Belgium, Holland, Sweden and Denmark. They will return to their studies in Rome in the fall. Gene is studying for the priesthood in Rome and has been in Italy since last fall. - o - Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Langfitt, Algona, are parents of their first child, a son, Mitchell Lewis, Aug. 10.
