Public Movie Tracing the history of the troubled times, from Karl Marx to the Cold War, the movie "We'll Bury You!" is a shock- ing new and thoroughly worth- while study of the Soviet Union. The film will be shown free of charge as a public service next Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the Hi-Way theatre in Sheridan Show time is 8 p.m. The film dramatically depicts the rise of communism and its masters.

Depicted are scenes of world-famous - and infamous - figures like Khrushchev of course, and Lenin, Stalin, Trot- sky and others of the Soviet scene; Castro of Cuba, Mao Tse- Tung of China. Containi@g un- censored scenes from secret film archives, "We'll Bury You!" bares the crushing of the Hungarian uprising, brutal terror of the OGPU, Red slave labor camps, bloody purges and pogroms, daring escapes over the Berlin wall, and many more of the headline-scaring events of the Red reign of terror!, But, most important, "We'll Bury You!" shows the "little people" as they fight for and against the continuing Russian Revolution; the farmers and workers, their wives and child- ren. They are revealed in all honesty, starving or feasting, laughing and crying, working, studying, playing. Rebellion, victory and defeat, all are dra- matically bared.
