Soviet Church Resists Red Policy Squeeze Korean Officers Hanker For American Roommates Two Air Force officers from the Republic of Korea, Major Wan Ik Lee and Capt. Auk Chan Cho, are looking for American roommates so they will become more proficient in the English language. Three Instructors Attend Confab Three facultymen of the department of drama will attend the annual convention of the American Educational Theater Assn. at the University of Minnesota this week. Dr. James H. Butler, deMille professor and chairman of the drama department, is a member of the association’s executive committee and chairman cf the time and place committee for the convention. He is also national president of the National Collegiate Players, which will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its founding. Others going to Minneapolis will be Dr. Herbet M. Stahl, professor of drama, and John E. Blankenehip, associate professor. The two are enrolled in the graduate School of Engineering under sponsorship of the United States Air Force. Upon graduation from USC, where both are working toward ME degrees, Lee and Cho will return to their native city of Seoul. Both serve there on the faculty of the South Korean Air Force Academy. The Koreans, who now reside at 1019 W. 31st St., said they need a closer association with Americans to develop a conversational ability in English. Male students who are interested in sharing quarters with either of the officers should contact them directly at their present address or through the Air Force ROTC detachment on campus, RI 7-6631 or Ext. 300. Students of the Japanese language or of Asian studies will have an opportunity to enrich their own study programs as both Lee and Cho have promised to reciprocate in these areas for assistance rendered them in mastering English. Although the official Com-1 munist policy against religion in the Soviet Union has been getting tougher for the past five years, the church remains a strong influence on many Russians, according to U’SC graduate student William Flet- 1 cher who spent the month of I July in the USSR. Despite the fact that in seven major cities there is only one church open for each 100,- 000 to 200.000 persons, some of the services, particularly Baptist, are well attended, Fletcher said in a lecture on ‘‘Soviet Society and Religion” delivered last week. About one-third of the people he saw in church were young, although there were no children or teenagers. Fletcher, who speaks Russian, spent three weeks as a tourist in Moscow, Minsk, Vlinius, Riga. Kiev, Kharkov, and Donetsk talking with Russians on the streets when he could. Ninety per cent of those he asked about the location of a church could direct him to one. “This seemed to indicate to me that however restricted church activity is at present, religious institutions still retain a massive potential influence in Soviet society,” Fletcher said. “In times of personal or social crisis, great numbers of those presently unchurched might turn to the church for solace and guidance.” Religious people have a difficult time in current Soviet society, Fletcher admitted. Not only are their churches being closed and acquintance being arrested, but economic sanc- tions are imposed against them. He reported that a Christian cannot hope for anything better than the most menial position. with a salary barely above the subsistence level. He cannot hold a good job in science or industry, and membership in the Communist party is closed regardless of how loyal a citizen he may be. Young people who have the courage to attend church do so knowing that this effectively closes the door to higher education. he said. Church people under such circumstances worship despite great risks. A high level of courage and conviction is required of them.
