Innocent Looks Over The Russian Women By CASSANDRA YALTA, Crimea--What strike* this wide-eyed innocent abroad M Russia? The women. I am fairly certain that they work harder than the men. Here in Yalta, me scene of Roosevelt's classic blundering against Churchill, an architect told me how he preferred women to work for him on his building schemes. He said that they were more "exact" than men. I questioned him what he meant by "exact" and, after some pretty uphill international conversation, I found that "exact" meant thorough, I think he was right There are female architects -in great profusion in this baffling land--nearly as many as men-and there are also hundreds of thousands of women who work as navvies. Nothing is too tough for them. On the great new mountain highway that leads from Sim- feropol -- the capital of the Crimea--to Yalta great armies of them were working. Digging. Breaking rocks. Laying asphalt Toiling and doing arduous hard labour of a degree that is unthinkable in the West. They drive trams. They sweep the streets. They become skilled metallurgists and doctors. They manage factories. They also raise some of the most handsome children I have ever seen. And they have a tense of fun. If there is one description I would apply to mo* of the women I have met in the USSR it is that they are jolly. Admittedly lome of mem took like battleships, but they are humorous battleships. Awl you can't say that about aH the men. The Soviet Union it crammed with statues. Statues of Lenin, Statues af Stalin. Statues of athlete*. statue* of footballers. Statvw «f canoeists. Statues of t e n n i s players. Statues «f lions. of indifferent craftsmanship. Lenin wins hands down in statue popularity and some of the more massive graven image* are impressive in a robust sort of way. Uncle Joe is also waiting for you at airports, railways, and in the market place. Curiously enough, in Georgia, his native land, he is conspicuously absent. Petrol stations in the USSR are blatantly scarce. I believe mat hi Moscow there are not more than half a dozen available to the general public. Elsewhere they just don't seem to exist The great roaring world of. Shell and Esso and National and BP does not function here. The Soviets keep their pumps well out of sight and the populace, who are not very well supplied with cars, are not subjected to all the bawling claptrap that besets the owner- driver all over Europe. Not only are there no visible filling-stations but there are n* hoardings advertising commercial goods. Even Coca Cola, the great capitalist symbol that flourishes from Broadway to Bangkok, has not succeeded in pentrating this vast empire that covers more than one-sixth of the total dry land of me globe. They play chess in hotels, restaurants, parks, cafes and waking-rooms. In the streets are public exhibition boards about twenty feet across where fee various moves of the competing champions in me Communist chess league are studied by the fans of the game. Chess is a highly intellectual pursuit · I have an uneasy feeling mat a nation that takes it up as a hobby should not be under* rated. i They might be good at putting foreigners in check and doing drastic things to bishops, Wngs Most «f mem are mass-produced in painted metal and are Cassandra is me BrkMt artist »*··« Biiama every Saturday M «te CWiea editorial pnge.
