STREEPER FUNERAL HOME I IMP WASWNGTON Tells Reasons For Escaping West Germany EDITORS NOTE—The author of ils article is one of. the hundreds f East Germans who have escap- d to the West despite the Berlin vail, barbed wire, mine fields and rigger-happy guards. On the eve Youths 9 Prank Thought to be Shooting Attack BLOOMINGTON, 111. (AP)-Twj) youths, who admitted to authorf- ies Ihey attached three railroad earning torpedoes lo a Peoria & Eastern Railway track at Downs Vednesday night, were to be ried In McLean County Juvenile Court today. Both are 14. Another youth, Terrance Smale, 19, of Downs, was fined $25 and costs Saturday by a justice of the peace after pleading guilty to respass. The youths' prank originally was thought to have been a shotgun attack aimed at a railroad engineer. The youths were appre- icnded Friday by New York Central railroad police and McLean County deputies. The engineer thought the blast of the torpedoes was the discharge of a shotgun, line engineer reported that he was firec at and narrowly missed. There was speculation after the report of the shotgun firing on the train hat it might have been connected with the slaying of two railroad crewmen at Hammond, Ind., Aug. 2. Warning torpedoes ordinarily are used by railroad men to warn oncoming trains of danger ahead. The Peoria & Eastern is a division of the New York Central which runs between Indianapolis and Peoria. Siamese Twins Surviving Duration Sept LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Bartley boys, David Eugene and Daniel Clifford, born Siamese twins, entered their third day of life today—separately. The twins, joined from mid- breast lo midabdomen, were sep arated in a three-hour operation Sunday. William Bartley 19, the father and Ihe twins' paternal grandmother, Mrs. Violet Mitchell waited in the hall throughout surgery. "Now it's up to the little guys," Mrs. Mitchell said after the operation. "They've got good names, David and Daniel." The boys were born at 11:45 a.m. Saturday to Mrs. Rebecca Bartley, 16, who is "improving nicely" in Glendale Sanitarium and Hospital. Delivered by Caesarean section, they weighted a combined 14 pounds, 4 ounces. The normal prot<»ctive mem branes for their intestinal tracts were missing, and corrective sur gery was performed shortly after brilh. Skindiver Falls on Own Spear, Dies JONES BEACH, N.Y.

She uses a pseudonym to protect her family and fiends still In East Germany. By KATJSttlNA THOMAS FRANKFURT, Germany (AP)- llved for 16 months behind the Jerlin wall. Except for the year my husband spent in jail during he hcighl of Stalinist frenzy back n 1952-53, they were my worst months under communism. Eight months ago my husband and I managed to escape. It meant leaving a large family lome and garden .where we had spent 24 happy married years. It Ticanl leaving behind almosl everything we owned, including Ihe worlhless senlimenlal things a woman treasures. II meant leaving friends with whom we shared hard and unforgetlable years. II. was a sacrifice and a great risk. Olher people mighl still es cape by the route we took so 1 won't go into details. Dangers But we road every few days of the dangers people run to escape. They scale the Berlin wall in a hail of bullets. They swim the icy Havel River in freezing weather. They crawl through tunnels thai might cave at any moment or run across mine fields that could blow Ihem up al any slop. Some are killed by Communist border guards. What drives people to gamble their lives in order to leave their homes? It might sound strange to American ears, but I'm sure the chief reason is the longing for freedom to think and do what one wants. The simple freedoms that Americans take for granted are worth a life to many East Germans. II is simply that after a while you can't breathe any more. You are too restricted. Your ideas count for nothing if they do not agree with those of the Communists. Your individual wishes are ignored. A person's individuality and freedom count for nothing. This is what people learn to hate. This is why Ihey leave. What did I personally dislike most? I think it was the way chil dren were treated. Parents Probably more parents leave East Germany for the sake of their children than for any other reason. I clearly remember Aug. 13, 1961. For years my husband and I felt we should stay in Easl Germany. One has a responsibility to one's home and people, and problems are not solved by running away. But we had finally decided to flee and our two children had already gone to the West. We planned to follow after a short vacation in a health resort. There we heard the news of Aug. 13. Our hearts sank. Our escape roule was blocked. It took nearly two years to find a way out. The one good the wall did was to wake people to the horror oi communism. Clothes on Line Object of Vandals EAST ALTON - An East Alton man reported to police Saturday afternoon that vandals have been pulling his daughter's clothes off a line in their backyard.
