Prof Tells Of Soviet Invasion
“Tell the world about this,”
Czechoslovakians pleaded to for
eigners leaving the Russian-in
Among the departing foreign
ers doing their part to tell the
world is Dr. Horace R. Blank, a
research geologist who was at
tending the International Geolog
ical Congress in Prague during
the Soviet take-over.
Dr. Blank and his wife just
returned home from the ordeal,
which was followed by a visit
to Germany and Austria.
“We just woke up one morning
and there were the Russian tanks
in the street,” Blank recalled.
“They just came in during the
night and surprised everyone.”
HE SAID he and several other
Americans were staying in a ho
tel about two miles from the
main business district and were
not in any immediate danger.
“The Russians were all around,
but we only heard one shot,”
noted the retired professor who
is now associated with A&M’s
Texas Transportation Institute.
“Our main problem was we did
n’t really know what was going
on,” Dr. Blank continued. “There
were no English newspapers and,
of course, all the radio and tele
vision programs were in Czech.
We had to rely on an occasional
call to the American embassy.”
The U. S. embassy arranged
transportation out of the coun
try for American visitors. The
Blanks departed on the second
outbound train, three days after
DR. AND MRS. Blank, along
with other Americans, were de
briefed by U. S. Army intelligence
personnel upon arrival in Nurem
berg, Germany. He was particu
larly impressed by the “wonder
ful treatment” afforded them by
the Army. The Red Cross also
was on hand.
Blank said the Russian soldiers
seemed well behaved. He and ot
her visitors in Prague walked
around in the city. Nothing hap
While there was little violence
evident, the Czechs were busy
publishing leaflets stating their
case and annoying the occupation
troops with tactics such as re
moving street signs to confuse
Citizens had been told not to
resist the invasion and risk death
and destruction of the city.
THE A&M researcher said the
universal reaction of Czechs was
one of dismay. He said he did
not encounter a single citizen who
supported the Russian action.
While touring Austria and
Switzerland, Dr. Blank detected
considerable concern about Amer
ican willingness to “stay with”
its commitments in Europe.
“They are very much afraid
that for reasons of economy, or
otherwise, that we might reduce
our European forces,” he ex
plained. “They feel that if tht
Russians can take over Czechos
lovakia in one day . . . .”
The geological meeting which
Blank was attending was a cas
ualty of the invasion. It was to
have run 11 days but broke up
after only four.
“The Czechs had gone to so
much trouble to make the con
gress a success, both from a
scientific and cultural viewpoint,"
the professor emeritus noted, "but
it all went down the drain.”

ment faculty members were an
