After Long Years Back in the 1930s, when the Soviet Union was in t h e throes of its first five-year plan, foreign specialists \vere recruited in the West at fat salaries. Thev played their part in instructing Russian workers, even as Lenin had said they would. For t h e m , it was a business matter. They were not among the converted and so got good pay. Although they ran the risk of being arrested as "spies" in that suspicious Stalin era, they were much better treated than "the f a i t h f u l . " it was entirely different for Western converts who sold all their possessions and went off to Russia to help build the workers' state. Most of these were soon disenchanted. To get out was much harder than to get in. When the lucky ones got home, they spread their disillusion. But what happened to those who stayed? What have the long years brought them? This will never be known. A Negro Yale Law School student recently visited the Soviet Union and tried to find some of the Negroes who had gone there from the U. S. in the 1930s. After much difficulty, some were found. In Georgia, working on collective farms which were, in effect, Negro colonies. And the crop? Cotton. * -A- . Fashion Note Ever so quietly, as though it never had existed, an era is ended. "For all practical purposes the separate collar is no longer a part of the American scene," a major manufacturer of men's shirts solemnly declares. Come to think of it, the morning ritual of pursuing popped collar buttons has vanished even from the f u n n y papers. The detachable collars that could keep a shirt going indefinitely have yielded to the modern elegance of a whole clean shirt every day. The detachable cuff, of course, vanished even earlier and was the tipoff that a revolution was at hand. That revolution is now completed and whatever failures a new generation may list against the old, the abandonment of the piecemeal shirt is not one of them.
