By DOROTHY KOE Assoctatcd Press Women's Editor Blonde, blue-eyed Mala Andre Is a modern pilgrim who marvels at the everyday things most Americans ta'rie for granted. Main was one of the 16 Estonian refugees who crossed the Atlantic ! from Sweden to American six years nco In a leaky old 36-foot sloop- Mrs, j The spine-tingling story of their adventure is told in a new book, parliament "Sailing to Freedom", by Voldemar Veedam and Carl B. Wall. Just being able to walk down the street without fear of being followed seems miraculous to this tall, quiet girl, now attending Hunter llege in New York and earning living at social work while waiting to achieve American citizen;hip. Seeing shop windows filled with the goods of a free country, being able to buy enough to eat and wear, saying what she thinks without, lenr of reprisal—all these thincs seem to her privileges well worth the perils of her desperate flight from the Russians. Captain's Daughter Mala was the daughter of an Estonian merchant marine cap- lain, who used to take her along on sea voyages when she was a child. She grew up loving the sea, and welcomed the chance to escape Russian-occupied Estonia with her mother, cousins and friends in the i 70-year-old sloop which did not ' ccem capable of a day's sail on the canal. During the four-month voyage from Stockholm to N'orthfolk. Va. into Norfolk Harbor. Maia, bred to the sea, was a tower of strength during ries- I perate days. Now she confines her sailing to rowboaLs in central Park. Sailed 8.000 Mi Irs The 16 who sailed their lumber- Ing little craft 8,000 miles to freedom have fared * p eH In America, even though they arrived without visas or clearance by immigration authorities. The majority have achieved U. S. citizenship. The others, including Maia and her mother, still arc waiting clearance under the Estonian quota. Says Maia: "The mast wonderful thing is that we have been allowed to live here, in peace and safety, for these six years on sufferance. "When we first arrived all of us were in constant fear of reprisals from the Communist underground. I know how widespread it is, and wherever I go there seem to be Communists in almose every group Perhaps they do not consider u mportnnt enough to worry about.' The one thing Maia fears is be- ng sent back to Estonia. Asked what would happen to her i£ slif went back, she replies simply: "I would be killed. Nothing ha aeen heard of the people who <U< go back." Mrs. O. C. Ganske had charge of the little band of men. women and the social hour, following which | children weathered all the perils Mrs. Henderson Hall presented meets Hall piano solo and Mrs. Ganske con- to i ducted a quiz.
