Restriction Oq, Travel Of Russians In United States Has High Nuisance Value But In Reality Will Not Mean Much By JAMES MARLOW Washington -OT- This country tin liven Russia a dose of pain- ln-th«-neck medicine, strictly a tit-Jor-tat home rpmedy, and a very mild one at that. The U. S.. government yesterday put restrictions on travel by Russians In this country because the Russians long ago restricted, travel by Americans in Russia. The American order is more nuisance than anything else. Asked if he thought it would be a hardship on the Russians here, a State Department official said: "Hardly, when you remember Ihere are about 90.000 American Communists running around loose in the United Slates, willing to do whatever the Russians want." Restrictions on American travel in Russia.are a little stiffer. Whole areas and cities are on the prohibited list. Americans can't travel to those places under any circumstances. Otherwise, the Russian' restrictions work like .this: Americans are limited to traveling within 25 miles of Moscow. But, if an American wants to -go anywhere--he simply notifies the Russian foreign office of his intention. He buys his ticket, by rail or plane, and at the end of the 48 hours goes. The same State Department official says an American following this procedure is seldom denied the privilege of going where . he wants, .within the prescribed limits; Watched By Police Needless to say, any American school girls band will provide music. Mrs. J. C. Parks, Mrs. Ethel Riddle, and Mrs. G. C. Bidwell will be hostesses 16 the Study Club Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Parks. Mrs. R. A. Barnes and Miss Ollie Barnes spent the weekend at of the Oak Grove While here he was Springdale with Autry Wilson. Mr. and Mrs. Mrs. Harry Dutton . spent Sunday afternoon with her husband, a patient at the Fayotteville Veterans Hospilal. Dr. and Mrs. Frank Higgall have returned from two weeks in Victoria and other parts of Canada. Mrs. Ursula Lillard, who is leaching at Stilwell, *"*' Okla was Mi mick traveling anywhere in Kussia well tailed by the secret police. . The net effect, is a pain in the neck to westerners in Russia, besides keeping them out nf those many prohibited areas. . Yesterday the U. S. told the Russians most of them in this country can't travel 25 miles beyond Washington or New York without notifying t h e . State Department 48 'hours in advance. Except for military installations or secret projects, which-are off limits to everyone else anyway, i .this restriction isn't much of a restriction. Mostly it's a nuisance.' You can see why: Say a Russian in Washington .wants to go to Chicago or Salt Lake City. He notifies the State Department 48 hours ahead of time. At the end of that time he goes, unless the State Department says he can't. It's not expected to do that very often. Whether or not Russian's traveling in the U. S. are tailed by the FBI is a secret of the State Department and the FBI. Yesterday's order applier to trie Rusiian diplomatic staff and their and New York and to Russian representatives of Tass and Amtorg, Russian news' and purchasing agencies here, «nd their families.. American employes of Tass are unaffected. About 114 Soviet citizens and their dependents, attached to the United Nations in New York; are cxcepted. Their presence in this country is covered by a separate freaty of the United Nations. So this American retaliation ·gainst the Russians isn't too painful. r. and Mrs. Kenneth McCor- and children of Sallisaw, Okla., spent the weekend with Mr. McCormick's mother, Mrs. D. N McCormick.

It seems t h a t the mariners about 530, before leaving in their siiil- ng vessels from Spain, would pray cforc the stntue of Santa Maria uon Airc. They pleaded for the saint to give them "good air" ;ts they roamed the then uncharted seas. Silling Wn Riikr Crossing the oceans in small ships which depended on winds to K ropel their sails was a bit more azardous than ocean travel today, when the 80,000-ton queen of the waves named after her majesty, Elizabeth, makes her trips. When I there was a lull a sailing vessel might drift aimlessly for a month wondering if fresh water and food would last until port was reached. So when the crew left Spain hoping to reach t h e southeast Atlantic side of South America, prayers were said to the saint. A promise was made that the landing place would be named utter her, if favorable winds prevailed during the long and tedious voyage. As in many cases the words gol m!$ed up and f i n a l l y became plural -- "juenos Aires -- for good air. '"Gringo" From A Song .
