EDITOR'S NOTE: Comedian Danny Kaye has been attending the Moscow film festival a% an American ambassador of good will. In the following exclusive dispatch, he tells of sharing laughter with the Russians. By DANNY KAYE Writien Far UPl MOSCOW (UPI) - Believe it or not, the Communists are just as capable of laughing as the guy next door. I didn't come (o Moscow to see the men who run the Kremlin or to clown for them. I didn't come merely to see the sights of Moscow's third International Film Festival, but I eertamly did come to see the people and to reaffirm my belief that laughter is truly universal. Before leaving the United States, I had some reservations about going to Russia, even though I was extremely curious to see what it was like. I had originally declined to attend the film festival, but when the State Department urged me to go to Moscow on a people-to- people mission and when the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) asked me to visit So- Viet children's institutions, I readily accepted. I thought that in a country where the political ideology is so diametrically opposed to ours, in a country where the mere mention of capitalism causes a nervous twitch, in a country where our society is frowned upon, I feared that people would not react quite the same to laughter. I found, however, that they do react to laughter with warmth and friendship and that they have the same emotions, fears and Bill calls for more money for education SACRAMENTO (UPI) —California public schools were assured today of receiving additional state aid, providing that the legislature will produce it. When the lawmakers opened their special session Monday, the aid-to - education measure moved immediately to the fore. Not only did Gov. Edmund G. Brown call it a matter "of overriding importance," but two men quickly introduced identical bills providing additional funds. The bills, by Assemblyman Gordon Winton, D-Merced, and Sen. Donald Grunsky, R - Watsonville, followed the 1 i n e s of a compromise proposal that won initial approval before the legislature adjourned June 21. When the governor's revenue program failed to pass, the compromise died with it. The Grunskj' - Winton bills call for spending an additional $40 million on the schools this fiscal year and S60 million in fiscal 1964-65. Ir. addition, they would enact the controversial countywide school tax, which would raise another S27 million from local sources. Districts now receive about $800 million annually in state aid. Assemblymen Charles E. Garrigus, D-Reedley, and John .L.E. Collier, R-Los Angeles, also promised school aid legislation. But both said they were working on final details before introducing the measures. Brown, in his special address to the lawmakers, followed Winton and Grunsky in recommending enactment of the original compromise measure. However, he made an important exception. He proposed that the additional 60 million next fiscal year should not be spent "unless the special session provides adequate revenues for the entire two - year span of the legislature." ' Unruh lauds message, Republicans blast it SACRAMENTO (UPD - Lawmakers Monday commented on Gov. Edmund G. Brown's message to the 1963 special session of the legislature. Their remarks included: Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, D - Inglewood — "Governor Brown's message ... represents a program that every forward- looking Califomian interested in the health of the nation's No. 1 state can and should support." Assemblyman Charles Conrad, R-Sherman Oaks. GOP floor leader — "Like a broken phonograph record, which keeps repeating the same phrase, Governor Brown is still making" his patent medicine man pitch to the legislature and the people of California." Assemblyman Don Mulford. R- Piedmont, GOP caucus chairman —"The governor is taking desperate steps to avoid facing up to the fact that his free-spending program, including millions and millions of new welfare payments enacted at the 1963 general session, is leading directly to new taxes." Assemblyman Robert W. Crown, D - Alameda, Ways and Means chairman—"(The message is) an effective restatement of the pressings needs of a growing California." Sen. John F. McCarthy, R-San Rafael, GOP floor leader — think it's very foolish of him to do this. It doesn't seem to make any sense at all. We are offering him a positive program and I cannot understand why he will not accept it (a GOP compromise plan)." Budget omits funds for new governor's mansion Greek rulers in London SACR.-^MENTO (UPI) - Gov. Edmund G. Brown's augmented budget sent to the legislature today failed to provide for a new- governor's mansion or a new private plane for the chief executive. But he restored literally hundreds of other items cut from the original spending program he proposed in February. The major items, of course, were expenditures of $40 million in state aid for education, $30.2 million for state employes pay boosts, and $13.8 million in construction money for higher education institutions.

Reports said that Scotland Yard officials learned of a plot to halt the two monarchs' train ride from Gatwick Airport to Victoria Station, where Queen Elizabeth planned to greet them officially, London newspapers reported that three Greek-Cypriot Com- .-iiunists landed in London recently and were being watched closely by the Yard.

(UPI)-A fisherman down on his luck is apt to try anything. Even tlie telephone. The trouble is, reaching fish by telephone is strictly against the law and can lead to arrest, as was the case Monday afternoon with five unhappy fishermen. This qumtet, which went forth to meet the sportsmen's challenge on Yellow Water Creek with nothing more than two dip- nets and an antiquated crankup telephone, was arrested on charges of shocking fish. State game and fish wardens identified four of the culprits as Terry Register, 17, of Cottondale, Fla., and Herman Rivers, 20, Guy Decker, 21, and Gerry Hoard. 20, all of Jackson. The fifth was a juvenile whose name was withheld. A fish and game official offered this explanation of fishing by telephone: "You turn a handle on an old crank telephone and this generates a current which shocks the fish. The fish jump out of the wa- tations. in the order listed in the budget: $115,000, provide public defenders for indigents: $322,000, continue roserarch programs at the University of California. $125,000. state tax study: $432.000, strengthen mental hygiene hospital services. $443,700, maintenance of juvenile homes and camps; $379,150, construction of juvenile homes and camps; S2 million, local mental health services.

I had a better opportunity to observe the people in Moscow than possibly any other city I have visited in recent years, because I quickly discovered that I could walk in the streets completely unnoticed. None of my pictures has ever played here and no one knew who Danny Kaye was. As a matter of fact, when I was coming to Moscow one Russian movie fan asked, "I hear she is a good actress. Is she pretty?" The cloak of anonymity was helpful because it gave me a greater opportunity to watch the people in everyday life. When I landed in Moscow I was startled to see entire families watching planes land and take off just as they do in New York, Los Angeles, or any other large capital city. WTien I took a walk in the middle of Moscow one night, I saw a group of boys teaching some girls how to do the bossa nova right there on the sidewalk. I chuckled because that could have been anywhere — in Greenwich Village, the Sunset Strip in Hollywood (or Gollyvood, as they say in Russian). I have tdked with Soviet officials, actors, film producers, ballet dancers, factory managers, welfare workers, nurses, doctors, hospital attendants and many others. But just about the best fun I had, and one of the most exciting experiences, was an afternoon I spent playing with 600 children at a pioneer (youth organization) camp. My visit was aranged by Prof. Georgy Mitriev of the Soviet Red Cross and Red Crescent. It was met at the camp by the children who didn't know me from Adam but amost all had bouquets of flowers. All they were told was that I was an honored American guest—an actor. A little, 9-year-old girl made a presentation speech in halting English but perfectly understandable—that is to say understandable to me. It was really very touchmg. I kissed her cheek and suddenly she got very embarrassed, but then I pretended I was embarrassed too, and covered my face with my hands. The reaction was immediate. From then on the children lost any reserve they had. Even though the children and I could not talk to each other, I found that behaving like a child with children made for immediate communication. We played games, sang songs, and danced together. It could have happened anywhere in the world. It leaves me with the hope that someday, somehow, our children will grow up in a peaceful, happy world.
