PARSONS NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, (NEA) .--A calm voice said: "Slooshayte, slooshayte, Govorit New York, Vy slyshitya B'olos soycdinyonnykh shtatov Amerlky." (''Hello, hello. New York calling. You are listening. You are listening to the. Voice of the United State of America," With a nod from the producer, Walt Postman began reading a summary of the day's news, In Russian. Tho RusHinn Section of the State Department'*! controversial International Broadcasting Division was on the air with its daily one- hour show beamed to listeners behind the iron curtain in Russia Hsolf, How long that program and the 0000 others the State Department broadcasts each month will remain on the air soon will be nettled by Congress. At the moment, it looks as if the programs will be drastically curtailed if not killed, Until Buoh time, however, the 'Voice of United States of America" will go out 00 hours dally over 33 short-wave transmitter* and government-owned short- wave roUiyn in Honolulu, Manila and Munich, and by medium wave relays in France, Italy, China and eluewlwo, It will broadcast in 25 different languages to millions of people in Europe, I^t/in America and the Fai 1 Bast, Extractly how many millions is a hard question to answer, but all indications arc that, the Voice of America's audience is vast. There are 20,000,000 short-wave receivers in the areas to which the programs are beamed (an estimated 000,000 in the Soviet Union alone), Millions of more listeners ai'O reached on the mod Hun' wave relays, Audience res ponse 1ms been high from coun tries not tied down by strict cen sorship. Four Letter* From Russia Last year, 65,000 listeners wrote letters of appreciation and request for specific information about the United atatea. So far this year, letters are pouring in at tho rato of 20,000 a month. Tho DivlHion now mails out monthly broadcast schedules in six different languages to more than 300,. 000 listeners who have requestec them. Nope of these scheduled goes to Russia. None has been offered to the Russians, and 50 far only four letters have been received direct" jy by the Division from Russian listeners. That does not mean that only four Russian have heard the program. One gratified foreign observer recently estimated that 2,000,000 Russians listen to th« pro- Dosplte the difficulties enqovmt wed a few months ago when the Russian program was originated correspondents now report that UB signal Is reaching Moscow as strongly as Moscow radio itself. Charles W, Thayer, 37, director of the Russian Suction, was surprised that any letters had been received from Soviet, listeners. Another Russian observer point eel out; "From Russia, whore it's hard to send out a letter on so innocuous a subject as Jonquils, I'm surprised that even four reached us. The .best test of how effective we've been In the few months we have been operating Is the blasts that Russian writer; like JUhrenburg and others have thrown at us. If we: weren't reaching an effective number of listeners, they would ignore us completely," They're, a West Point graduate and son of an old Philadelphia ship-building family, known his Russia. He decided on a diplomatic career immediately after his graduation from the U.S. Mill" tary Academy. ' On Embassy Staff That was about the time U. S, was prepripg to recognize Rus- gia officially, and Thayer beat the first diplomatic mission to Moscow by several months to get in on thq ground floor and to learn the Russian language,. His visitor's permit was for one month only, but he managed to evade police several months beyond thftt time until Ambassador William Bullitt arrived. I think I was one of the last Americans to live with a Russian family in Russia. It was pretty much as relaxed period as far as the Russians were concerned, especially if you were one of their joys. I was definitely not one of those, and they couldn't see any ·eason for my staying beyond that one month. "When Bullitt. arrived, I joined he embassy staff, Sinoo then I iave spent seven years stationed in Russia, a couple of years in Germany, and a year and a half in Afghanistan." During World War U, Thayer went back into the Army and serv- d as a parachutist. He was in Condon when the State Depart- nent decided to play ball with 49.

The family was considered very liberal by pro-Revolution Russian standards, but Nabakoff fled the country I'ight after tho Revolution, nnd grow up in Qreoce, Qer- nmny and France where he studied music, and wrote for magazines and newspapers. He has been on the staff of several colleges, including St. Johns in Baltimore, since coming to the Untied States and has contributed to Harpers Atlantic Monthly and the London Daily Mail. During the war he served with the Economic Warfare division of tho Justice Department and latei with the Army on tho Strategic Bombing Survey in London and as Army advisor on cultural affairs in Berlin. He was with Ambassador Robert Murphy as an advisoi on Russian affairs until the State Department called him back from Europe to work on the Russian section of tha IBD.

"We appeal to you to help '^ bring a soulish renewal," said Mayor Luise Schroeder. "Lose yoa/ ridipulous belief that veneral disease is a delicate subject. It must be painted for what it is, in plain straight language." The grey-haired female political leader aserted that the average young German girl has lost virtually all religious, national, and traditionally moral conceptions.

When spring floods began to wreak havoc with the wires strange and weird conversations took place. Americans making intor-office calls have found themselves talking- to unknown Frenchmen in Baden-Baden, bemused Englishmen in London, and excited Slavs in Moscow. The situation isn't helped by the courteous but confused German telephone operators who wa typical mistakes in spelling out American names. An operator who American names. An operator who spelled out the word "jug" advised one American that it was "JUG, J like in George, U like in Under, and G like in Jerk."
