Refugees Gape At Abundance Of U. S. Meals
NEW YORK, Sept. 29-4P'-”Do
I HAVE to eat like this in Pitts-
burgh?” a young woman asked.
She made the inquiry after eat-
ing a breakfast of grapefruit, oat-
meal, strawberries in cream, bacon
and eggs, three slices of buttered
toast and jam and two sweet rolls.
This was more than the girl oft-

home in Poland.
She was one of 1,250 European

ing her breakfast. "Besides, who
can afford it?”
Her neighbor, an old man from
Soviet-controlled East Germany,
was happier about his fare.
"Let me look like a horse,” he
said. “Let me even look like an
elephant. You know what I’ve been
eating near Leipzig? Potatoes, po-
tatoes, potatoes — they’re coming
out of my ears.”
A little girl observed that Amer-
icans must be rich, to be able to
eat so well. Everyday aboard ship
was like Christmas to her.
Despite assurances by ICEM of-
ficials that most Americans are
well fed, the immigrants appeared
to be doubtful. They ate as though
each meal might be their last.
Eating full meals is just one of
the introductions to the United
States refugees receive aboard the

than 17.000 Europeans to the new
world in only a little more than a

What little pocket money the
refugees have, they can spend in
the ship’s store on cigarettes,
toilet articles, shirts, trousers and
food—and at prices well below

The travelers do not really need

corn flakes, hotcakes and syrup,
roast meat, fish, salads, cake and
ice cream served to them in the
