TUESDAY, JUNE 23, 1953 BLYTHEVIJ LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Lad Slips Through Iron Curtain BERLIN iff) — Unusual kindness raised the tank-guarded Iron Curtain hriefly today to let an 11- year-old orphan boy slip out of riot-torn East Germany to a haven with relatives in West Berlin. With all his.belongings in a rucksack on his back, little Peter von rJsikowitzky came all alone from Schwcrin, 120 miles to the northeast. When he reached the East- West Berlin border, he met kindness instead of bullets. A Communist official gave the child a hand-written pass and Communist peoples' police—the dreaded "Vopes" with notches on their guns—escorted him across in a radio patrol car. This was the same border Rus- l^.sian troops and East German po- ' lice have sealed with tanks and machine guns ever since the workers' revolt against Soviet rule began last Wednesday. Father Killed Peter's father, a German officer of noble Russian descent, was killed in the war. His mother was "taken away" by the Russians in 1945 and never returned. He lived with his half-deaf, 65-year-old grandmother in Schwerin. The grandmother became ill recently, and the Communists wanted to put Peter in an orphanage. Both she and the boy balked. They ventured a dangerous experiment. She packed Peter's rucksack, gave him what little money she could spare, and told him what to do. He went to the rail station all by himself and bought a ticket for Berlin. People Help When Communist police checked the passengers' papers as they approached Berlin, Peter pretended to sleep. They didn't bother him. Keaching East Berlin, he met one Hind person after another. A man helped him ride the subway to midtown near the Western frontier. A woman gave him lodging for the night. The government's watchdog — the neighborhood "strassenver- trauensmann" wrote a letter dc- scribing Peter's plight and asking that he be passed through the border guard. The "Vopos" drove him through Finally he reached his aunt, 26- year-old Tatjana von Dsikowltzky, in West Berlin. Husband Believed Wife's Killer DENVER (/P) — Detective Capt.
