Pravda Reports On Problems
Behind The Iron Curtain
By Anne Blackwell
Most of us Americans, wonder
what kind of a life the average
Russian citizen of today leads.
Actually they have many petty an
noyances, many daily problems just
as we do. A Russian journal, the
Pravda, dared to publish a few of
these complaints. Here are some
Men’s yellow shoes, out of fash
ion in America, are choice special
ities in Russia. They are the latest
style and are worn by well-dressed
citizens, even though they do turn
green after a few day’s wear.
Soviet cooks have their worries
also. The pots and pans supplied
to them are all green. The cooks
complain that the green gets mono
Not only are articles of men’s
clothing difficult to obtain, but
articles of any kind. Even when
they are obtained, most articles
are practically worthless. For ex
ample at Moscow a woman bought
a talking doll for her daughter at
the price of thirty-five dollars.
Within two hours the doll had
stopped talking, and one of her
legs had dropped off. The dura
bility of the volley ball is another
example. The women athletes find
that after bouncing a volley ball
purchased from a Russian store the
spherical roundness of the ball
changes to the oblong shape of a
football. After two or three games
the cover breaks. Just as “durable”
as the volley ball is the Russian
accordian. Two Red Army sold
iers bought one which was manu
factured by the Red Guerrilla Fac
tory in Leningrad. The first time
they stretched it open all of the
insides fell out without a sound.
These complaints are due to a
mass of red tape created by the
Soviet system, but affecting all of
the Russian people. The majority
of the Russians are complaining.
They have their headaches.
