    Background: PART OF THE SOVIET-AMERICAN CULTURAL EXCHANGE AGREEMENT, AN EXHIBITION OF WORKS OF ART AND MECHANICAL OBJECTS MADE BY SOVIET CHILDREN OPENED AT THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM OF ART, NEW YORK, U.S.A., JAN 23.

    THE OVER-ALL IMPRESSION OF THE EXHIBITION, AS PREVIEWED BY THE PRESS, IS THAT IT ILLUSTRATES THE FACT THAT CHILDREN AND THEIR HOBBIES ARE THE SAME WHETHER THEY BE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN.

    EASILY THE MOST POPULAR EXHIBIT WITH AMERICAN SCHOOLBOY VISITORS IS THE FOUR-FEET LONG ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN MODEL OF A DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE. THIS IS A PRODUCT OF THE HOBBY CLUB OF MOSCOW RAILWAY SCHOOL, ON WHICH 170 CHILDREN WORKED AFTER CLASSES FOR SIX MONTHS.

    MODELS OF STEAMSHIPS, AIRCRAFT, TRACTORS, HARVESTING MACHINES, SPUTNIKS AND LUNIKS WERE ALL AROUND. TWO OF THE MORE OUTSTANDING IN THIS CLASS WERE MODELS OF THE ROCKET WHICH LAUNCHED ONE OF THE SOVIET ASTRONAUTS INTO ORBIT, AND A GIANT WALKING EXCAVATOR MADE BY THE TECHNICAL CLUB OF A TRADE SCHOOL IN SVEROLOVSK. THIS MODEL WAS AWARDED A GRAND PRIX AT THE BRUSSELS WORLD FAIR. ANOTHER EXHIBIT WORTHY OF NOTE IS AN ELECTRIC CLOCK MADE BY A THIRTEEN-YEAR OLD BOY. A STEEL BALL ON RUNNERS MOVES ABOVE THE CLOCK.

    PIECES OF CARVING, CLAY MODELS, INGENIOUS GLUED-UP FIGURES AND WATER-COLOURS ADORN THE WALLS AND SHELVES. THEY RANGE FROM WORKS BY CHILDREN AT KINDERGARTEN TO EIGHTEEN-YEAR OLDS, AND ILLUSTRATE THAT CULTURE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE CHILDREN OF THE SOVIET UNION.
