Reds Drop Iron Curtain on Gay Roomings of Gypsy Tribes By RICHARD O'REGAN VIENNA Mi —The Communists behind the Iron Curtain have ruled no more roaming for Europe's nomadic, darlc-sltinned Gypsy race. There'll be no more soul-scaring Gypsy music to tempt city-dwetlers to cast off their bonds and taice to the road. Gypsy palm-readers are Informed only the Communist state can tell what the future holds. The Romany are to he made "useful members of Soviet society." Their sparkling-eyed children will be taken from their uneducated parents and sent to state schools to learn trades. Their parents will be persuaded by various pressures to leave their caravans and lazy card-playing and put to work in factories producing (or the "great peoples' democracies." This is the communist plan being carried out, according to reports reaching Vienna, on the Hungarian plains and in the wooded moun- lains of Czechoslovakia and Romania, where thousands of Czigany have wandered for centuries.

British Find TV Appeals Mostly To Less Educated Elements Communists are not finding H easy. In Hungary, the government tried to entice the Gypsies to become farmers. It allotted many Gypsies ground under the land reform. But the wanderers left their fields uncultivated. They continue to try to eke. out an unauthorized living from their old profession- tinkering, horse-dealing, forlune- telling and stealing. Hungarian authorities, reports say, are doing their best to wipe out such independent Gypsy activities. Gypsy tinkering and trading are free enterprise and thus discouraged. In Czechoslovakia's eastern provinces, the Communist regime demolished the clay huts where the Gypsies gathered in winter and drove out their occupants. Gypsy children, reports say, have been taken from their parents and sent to trade schools. The parents, by police pressure, have been made to work in new plants. But, say the reports, the illiterate, liberty-loving wanderers do not stay on the job. They do not \vork at the jobs given them. They continue to move, despite the police and the lack of rations for those who fail to lill their production quotas. U.S. Collected Mora 'axes Last Year Than Ver: $362 Per Person WASHINGTON MP>—Tha government collected more taxes last year than ever before—about $362 for each man, woman and child In the nation.

The British Broadcasting Company's,Audience Research Department made the survey of 3.000 families and 1,454 other viewers. The researchers came up with some rather interesting findings: "The greater the Income or the higher the standard of education, the less time people spend watching TV." That's not all: "Given two families with differing levels of education, but roughly the same amount of money coining in, the odds are thai it , will lie Hie family whose educational standard is tbe tower which will acquire n TV set first." Television brought somewhat of a social revolution to Britain I the swift period of three yea As late as 1041 television was laigeiy the privilege of the better- off in Britain. By (he end of 1950. 50 per cent of all television owners were persons earning less than eight pounds ($22.40) a week. The survey showed seven out of 10 of the adults who spent the most time viewing th'eir TV sets were persons who left school at the age of 14 or 15. The research group said that TV had these effects on viewers: 1. 40 per cent of the viewers did more entertaining. About 20 per cent cut down visits to friends. 2. 63 per cent went less to movies. 3. 42 per cent read less than before. 4. 30 per cent cut down their time on hobbies. 5. 50 per cent played fewer indoor games. 6. 90 per cent listen less to radio.
