spok en in Iceland but it is not un derstood by most modern Nor wegians Gold has not been used in United States coins since 1934 Is Eased By PHIL NEWSOM UPI oreign New Analyst Th Russian Republic largest of the 15 republics within the Soviet Union has decided that Siberian exile is a bit too harsh for its economic parasites This information is turned up by researcher for Radio Liberty th private American organization which lists the late Herbert Hoover Harry Truman and Dwight Eisen hower among its honorary chairmen and which beams its broadcasts to th Soviet Union in 17 languages A decree sponsored by former Premier Nikita Khrush chev authorized on May 4 1961 exile as a means of punishment for "parasitic who do no socially useful work Among those classed as paraSites Were persons living on unearned income engaging in illicit trade private enter prise activities speculation begging illegal use of building materials and privately distill ing alcoholic beverages Quick "Justice" As a result of the decree thousands of Russians suddenly found themselves in various remote areas of Siberia often in a sort of revolving door justice which ignored both legal procedures and Individual rights The system also created new problems In some areas the black marketeers or bootleggers sim ply set up shop in their new place of exile In others authorities said they had no labor shortage had not asked for banished idlers in the first place and refused to find jobs for them Radio Liberty noted the special case of the small Russians Siberian mining community of Bobaido Bobaido was selected as a place of exile for convicted big city prostitutes who immediate ly set up shop A report by Marina in th March 14 1963 Literary Gazette said dismayed house wives of Bobaido protested to the government but to no avail Now the girls will be heading west again Only the Worst The newly revised law exempts from its jurisdiction all "economic ex cept those classed as clous self young hooligans and drunkards who refuse to work The reason for the change according to Radio Liberty is that proponents of the old decree finally saw it as a failure in attempts at re education The new system provides that the parasih first must be warned to find a job within one month If he ignored the warning he then can be ordered to report for work at a factory or building project near his residence If he ignores both the warning and the order he then can be sentenced to one year of close to home The revised decree so far affects only the Russian republic Other Soviet republics W'hich usually take their cue from the Russian republic are expected to follow suit soon In the 136 years from 1819 to 1955 more than 40 million aliens entered the United States ac cording to the
