THURSDAY. APRIL », 1981 (ARK.) COURIER Visiting US. Newsman Finds Soviet Children 'Like Kids Anywhere (Editor'g Note: Eugene A, Simon of the widest streets I have seen one of A group of American newe executives now visiting Moscow. He filed this dispatch early today at the end of his first full day in the Russian capital. A graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College, Simon is president and general manager of the Valley Daily News of Tarentum, Pa. He was a lieutenant aboard a Pacific aircraft carrier In World War II.) . By EUGENE SIMON (Written for The Associated Press) MOSCOW (tf)— It was quite a day —April first—the first day in Mos- anywhere. The other is the great amount of construction and new building going on. The newly completed Moscow University looks like the University of Pittsburgh Tower of Learning In the center and Bethesda Naval Hospital on the sides. Our 10 press and radio representatives frankly expected some hostility and perhaps strained situations in Moscow. As yet none has occurred and the people I have contacted up to now have been very friendly and hospitable. This is even true on the street, where a great deal of curiosity is evidenced. I guess we really stand out as foreigners. cow for a small-town,.American newspaperman a long way from home. Yes—It almost seemed like someone would punch me in the ribs and say "April fool". j After an excellent egg omelet • p* § i A • • breakfast with all the trimmings, ; If p/f /VlfsC/On eaten in view of the Kremlin—with * %wu *7if«J«»f VII a large Chinese delegation in an adjacent dining room, and, near -*us, a youth group eating with a pint of milk in front of each—we left for a visit to the American Embassy, Five of our correspondents stationed here came along. While I took pictures of the Kremlin, a young girl rather vehemently wanted to stop me. After considerable gestures by both parties concerned, a police officer came up and after clearing up the matter offered apologies in rather good English. Another little sidelight came when some Moscow small fry crowded around the big car in which we were riding and asked if it went backwards. Speaking of cars, there are quite a few on Moscow's streets—similar to Fords, Chevrolets and some like our Buicks. "Like Kids Anywhere** As I was walking through Red Square today with Pavlov, one of our interpreters and guides, a group of teen-agers crowded around for a picture—like kids anywhere. Pavlov said they v: the common people — the salt of the earth. I got better acquainted with Pavlov after awhile and found he is something of a philosopher. He was bragging about his boy of 12 and girl of 8, who were fine pianists. Pretty soon I pulled out a picture of my little girl. Pavlov pointed to it and said it was a universal law to live for your children. Two things surprised me about Moscow. One is that it has some Unrecognized Red Mission Goes Home TOKYO UPi — Twelve Russian members of the unrecognized Soviet mission here left for home today aboard the Dutch liner Jimbanjet. All had been living at the old Russian Embassy Building, which flies the Red flag but which is not recognized by the Japanese government. Kyodo news agency said all firmly refused to answer questions at the pier. The group were members of the wartime Soviet mission to the Allied Council for Japan, which went out of existence when the Japanese Peace Treaty took effect almost a year ago. Soviet Russia did not sign and does not recognize the treaty. It legally is still at war with Japan.

LOS ANGELES (/P) — Medical drama developed when a patient's icart stopped just before a leading leart surgeon was to operate, demonstrating his technique to hospital staff members. Instant incision of the chest and massage of the patient's heart by hand revived her, after three minutes. The middle-aged woman, suffsr- ng from constriction of a heart valve, was being preoared for the surgery at City of Hope Hospital in nearby Duarte yesterday. Dr. Charles P Bailey. Philadelphia heart specialist, was telling staff members In an adjoining lecture room about the technique he would use. Suddenly a nurse rushed in, whispering to Dr. Alfred Goldman, the hospital's chief of professional serv- ices. He hurried into the operating room and performed the operation to restore heart and breathing action. Dr. Bailey and others assisted. Dr. Goldman commented later: "A cardiac resuscitation case is like a 100-yard dash. If you do everything right, it's all over before you know it and you find that you have won." 5 Persons Die In Fire at AEC Wonts Chile to Protest British Action SANTIAGO.
