PA., n his first morning in the United Slates. 4-year-old Michael Hajko awoke and rushed from his bed to the window. "America was waiting for him, he felt," said Pavel Hajko, a newly arrived Czechoslovak refugee as he smiled down at his solemn faced son. "Michael was a little disappointed. He kept demanding to see Ihe Atlantic Ocean and the coconut trees.

The Hajko family, with 165 other 'Czechoslovak refugees, arrived in the United States aboard a plane chartered in Vienna by the Inter governmental committee for European Migration to bring the largest single group here since the Soviet-bloc invasion of Czechoslovakia in August. Other groups will arrive weekly under liberalized immigration rules permitting several thousand to enter Ihe country before I he end of the year. Relatives or friends were waiting to receive many of the refugees at Kennedy International Airport, and others went off to jobs promised them in Chicago, Los Angeles and other cities. Those who remained and had no immediate employment prospects or plans were GARY DEAN r . w i j - " t- ' ' lis r i ') ( 51 vK 11:25 PM 1 TONIGHT baked dish of noodles and cheese. ) On politics, said Wagner: "You can even call the president names and no one here will hurt you." He paused, then added: "but don't abuse the privileges." Eleven of the newcomers decided to take jobs offered in the lodge, mostly as waiters and maids. It was arranged that Mrs. Hajko, who is a nurse, would take care of the children and the four other mothers would share their wages and tips with her. Wagner said he had arranged for other hotel-owners who are "not even Czechoslovaks like me" to take in several hundred more refugees. Wagner, 47-year-old bachelor, arrived in this country as a refugee 16 years ago and helped his aunt build up the now prosperous mountain resort hotel on a 500-acre tract in hte Poconos. The American fund for Czechoslovak refugees, headed by Dr. Jan Papanek, carries on its work in this country entirely with private contributions. "Our monev would be exhausted in no time if we had to keep these families in Manhattan," said Vojtech Jera-bek, the organization's executive secretary, who made the trip to the Poconos with the newcomers. Discussing the reasons for having left their homeland, some of the refugees said they were afraid of political persecution. Others said they felt Czechoslovakia's brief period of liberalization had been brought to an end by the Soviet occupation, and still others said just that they thought thev could have a better life in theU.S. "We're very happy to stay-right here," Hajko brought to this mountain resort in a bus chartered by the American Fund for Czechoslovak Refugees, the sponsor of 131 of the new arrivals. The others were brought by United HIAS the International Rescue Committee or the United States Catholic Conference. Travel-weary after the 11-hour plane flight, most of the 31 refugees on the bus six of them children slept during the ride. After three hours, the bus drew up at Mount Airy Lodge, glittering with lights. Colored floodlights played on ornamental fountains. A muted orchestra sounded in the night. The women self-consciously touched their hair, the men their unshaven faces, as they crossed the carpeted entrance hall and sat down to a re-warmed dinner under crystal chandeliers. But they managed a smile when two young waiters greeted them in Slovak: "Vitsme Vas" welcome. And their spirits rose when Emil Wagner, the general manager, assured them they were to be his guests, without charge. For those who wanted jobs, there was work waiting, he said. There was a solemn moment when the Rev. Stefan Zima, also speaking in Slovak, gave them his blessing and prayed briefly for "those others who remain." Though weary, they could still laugh aloud for the first tine when Wagner, speaking in Slovak, offered them advice: "Don't tell Americans how to do their jobs better. Don't rush into new businesses. They have everything here except maybe halusky."

Dr. Ugolini is an associate professor of forest soils at the University of Washington. He says Antarctica is "the ideal outdoor laboratory" for his particular study because the remote vastness of the cold desert region has had few intrusions of other life on mineral soils. "And." he added, "the frigid weather slows down the rate of change of the biological mechanisms. This combination provides a simple primitive system in slow motion effect which allows the scientist to observe individual steps and isolate specific biological processes. "The biological weathering of soil has direct revelance to the study and understanding of soli development in other soil zones where, in contrast to the cold desert region, there are rapid biological changes and the Interactions of complex scological systems." Dr. Ugolini is a veteran commuter to Antarctica. His first trip was in l'.Wl. He left for anoiher two-monlh visit in mid-October. Ugolini and an assistant, Charles CJrier, a graduate student, are "prospecting" within a WO-mile radius of McMurdo Naval Air Base.
