Why tUies the average Russian feel this way? There jin.bahly are two reasons—the ii-.^e-ssant Soviet l-i Amanda on this line, and vivc^ Reminders, of the terrific 1; i atii^ taken in tlio last war be- for c victory was won. Tims, the attitude of this girl, wfhch in ^cnrial seemed to reflect that (,l all Russians was not sur- pri.sint:. The Russians have been convinced by the Soviet press than Western capitalistic nations are be tit on endr element and isolation of the Soviet Union— even ii the price i.-; war; that what Americans ':a:l Communist exjun.skm is Ka- virt .striving lor security; that the Unit eft £• lutes v.hicli suffered no pln.sical de.stnii'Uon at home i.s determined lo deprive 'Russia of her justifiable claims.

Life in .Moscow by 'American .standards is dismal and dreary. But like 'New York, London, Paris and other world capitals, the iru- jor preoccupation of Use man in tho street is his difficult struggle lor food, clothing and housing, and hope that a lout; peace will give him and his country time to improve the average man's tot. The book storc.s and newspaper and magazine kiosks are jammed with people. Tho average Muscovite has an unquenchable thirst tor reading matter—whether it is current Soviet propaganda or old classicists like Tolstoy or Pushkin. One sei'ond lianil bookstore; had :m English version of "Little 'Red Riding Hood' 1 on display. Despite beggars, one sees lew nu;inmi(Tins or drunks on "Moscow streets. Children almost without exception are very well clothed. They share a privileged status \vilb the .soldier on clothing. Occasional drunks — Mostly old men and younu soldiers that I saw —were ill evidence downtown. Russians Rude by Nature Russians are rude by nature. They push to get in subways, buses and buildings, and fpnsh just as bard * to get out. 'A s in -London, Paris or 'Now York, there arc frequent / fighU in queues about who was | first. And the queues in Moscow • where Russians line up for everything are longer than anywhere in the world whether for a bus, bread, groceries, nowspap-crs or theater tickets. •Russians love sweets. And they get very little these days. Thai accounts for the amid scramble around ice cream vendors in Moscow's downtown squares-even during freezing snowstorms—to buy what we call an icecream sandwich. There is much grauinblin)* amotiff Russians. Unlike Americans they aren't complaining about being 801 h on the list for a new automobile or refrigerator. They are annoyed because in many cases it is more difficult now than during the war to get the bare essentials of life. A Russian, .^peaking Aiperican phi had an interesting conversation with an old lady attendant in a .cloak room at a Moscow hotel. T?ie pjd.. lady qyed, .her. smart high-heeled shoocs, nylon stockings, smartly styled dress and cjiffure, arid warm attractive- coat. "America'nski?" she, asked.
