I also discovered it is easy to get into Russia but leaving can be a nightmare. As a student leader who refused to swallow the Communist liner I went in fear of my life.

There 12,000 students at Baku, most "of them Russians but including young men and women from 13 African countries. There were 90 of us from We were referred to scathingly as "the blacks! Many local people had never seen an African before and because we were black they hated us, 0 Within a month or two most of us knew We were not going to like TAKE PASSPORTS But when we1 arrived they took away our passports and. it was almost impossible to leave. You must even have a pass- to visit a friend in another hostel. We all lived in hostels, usually four people to a room.

There was no rule that foreign students had to live together but we preferred it that way. We got our first of race hatred as soon as we arrived in Baku. We were told we could not go out with Russian girls. There was no law against it but they said it was just local custom, v- 1 One of my friends was beaten up at a restaurant while drinking a glass of lemonade. I was with anothef friend when he was robbed of his watch and pen in a train.

We shouted but the thief just walked away. A policeman stood by doing Most of us were better dressed tljan the Russian students and the local people and they resented it. They thought our clothes had been bought for us out of their taxes. We got an allowance of 80 ru bles $88 at the official rate a month, not much, but more than many Russians got in Baku. They felt we were leading a better life and this caused bitterness.

RACIAL PREJUDICE Basically, though, it was a question of race. Taxis refused to pick us up and I was often refused service in restaurants. Many students did their own cooking but there were frequent food sf orfagesand long queues at the shops. There, were queues for When an African reached the head of the line he would be told they had just sold out but the person behind him would get served. It' didn matter what subject you took I was taking medi cine you had to learn the his tory of the Soviet Soviet' culture and Marxism-Leninism.

You liad to buy Pravda every day and learn a text from it. Sometimes we were sum moned to lectures which turned out to be nothing but Communist demonstrations. Students would go one after another to the platform to read speeches which had Jeen prepared for them. During my winter holiday, I went up to Moscow and met a number of African students I had known before. They were 1 copter smashed Into the JUmDarcadero -ironto of Pier 18 after falling 800 feet line a stone The pilot, Reginald Dunster, fought to control the big Sikorsky S-62.

Somehow he managed to manuever the craft, glancing off the railing of the freeway, which was loaded with traffic, scraping the side of a two-story building and crashing into a supply yard near three workmen; The tail rotor brushed a transformer on a pole, and sheared. off a fire hydrant causing a geyser.

Following the death of an African student, a group at the University of Baku went on strike against racial discrimination. What followed is related by one of the students in this story told to the Associated Press. changed people.

They had swallowed the Communist line. Some of us tried to resist this sort of thing and we were branded as bad students. Once you were suspected you go the impression you were liv ing in a police state. Your letters from home would take a month to arrive and quite ob viously they had been opened. But we were sent to Russia by the Kenya government and we felt we had a duty to learn.

We tried, but we felt we were not getting what we went for. We didn't mind not being able to go out with girls or the other discrimination. We got used to it. Our main complaint was our lack, of security. The trouble reached a climax March 17 with the murder of a Ghanaian student, George Daku.

There was no question of him dying a natural death. He was murdered, all right He had been out with some Russian friends and his body was found in some bushes about four miles from the university. NEWS LEAKS OUT He lived with an Iraqi and a Russian student but we never saw his roommates again. The Russians tried to keen his death a secret butftfrJfews leaked out. That was the last straw.

After George's death we decided to demand a transfer to another university elsewhere in Russia and to go on strike until we got it. We stayed in our hostel for a week before all going to the railway station. We stayed there for eight days and nights. We wanted, to go to Moscow but had no visas and so could not buy tickets. So we just sat there as a sort of pacifist demonstration.

Russian young Communists kept trying to entice us back to the university with promises of money and girls. Sometimes they offered us each 50 rubles and told us Russian girls would come up to us on the street and offer to go out with us. 29 STAND FIRM Some of the strikers gave in but. 29 of us would not surrender. We were completely cut off and could not even telephone our embassy in Moscow.

We had no blankets and very little food. We rationed ourselves until our money gave out, then the university sent us 10 rubles. Finally Soviet officials gave us an ultimatum either we went back to our studies or we went home. We decided to go home and mmm rftTlf THE WEEK Astrology Forecast By SYDNEY OMARR "The wise, man controls his destiny Astrology points toe way." ARIES (March 2I-April PATIENCE is real virtue.
