FRIDAY. MARCH 12, 1018 Czechs Flee Red Rule in Home land More Than 800 Enter U.S.,Zone in Germany After Communist Coup 111 !l~»*!£ J ° h " J ' MM>ll!ln nvr^v^l^f, Sta " Corr «pondrnt) KbCjkNSBURG, Germany Mar 12 (UP)_More than 800 ' Czechs' including three member., offiarl a-' tienl, have fled their homeland In he past two «ek s to seek haven in American-occupied Germany it was reported today. ^ l """" y ' The Germans do not like them, but the Americans told the Germans to take care of the Czechs I here wasi no place they could go. The border of the Amerlcnn- "^"E . zone is the °" lv remaining cniiiic in Czechoslovakia's Iron curtain. The Czechs are part of 550000 refugees being housed In Bavaria Among these refugees are 200.000 Sudeten Germans forced out ol Czechoslovakia. The first two Czechs to arrive were put In with the Sudeten Germans, who beat them, according lo the Americans. Then the Czechs vi'ere given their own place—the Rcgensburg Hlsh School. . Tlie Germans registered their arrival In a large copy book and ! gave them folding cots to set up In the deserted class rooms. There are 200 Czechs in the school. American authorities say there are n total of 650 in this section of Germany. The Czechs themselves say their numbers are more than 800. First Came in Cars \The first refugees came in automobiles, before the border police were reinforced. There are six cars parked In front of the school. Later they came on foot. Among the refugees was a five- year-old boy. He walked across the border at night, hanging to his father's hand, while his mother carried his nlne-monhs-old sister There are 30 students, s ome of them among those who were fired on by Prague police. But mostly they are professional people, from the middle and upper middle class. At first they came at the rate of 60 a day. Yesterday the number dropped to 24. They live on the basic German ration of 1.500 calories a day. It hurts to take charity from the Germans they hate, but they do It. Their main fear is that their names will get back to Prague and members of their families still there will be punished. Mostly they want to emigrate— Canada, stiuth America, Africa. But thc v intend to go back to Czecho- solvakla some day. A spokesman said Communist Informers sometimes try to slip into the camp. "We found two the other day," he said. "They were recognized by the students. The Americans look them away." BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COUniER NEWS Pink Pretties PACK nvn But Line Hearing Reset for April 6 CA11UHKHSVII.I,K. Mo.
