'U' Russian Students To Visit Soviet Union

The 22 grinning students and
instructors (two travel agents ex-
cepted) are off this morning for a
one month practical exercise in
spoken Russian-in the Soviet
Mrs. Edith Ignatieff, Mark Sui-
no and Irwin Titunil, of the Uni-
versity's Slavic languages depart-
ment are accompanying the group.
The 19 students are from vari-
ous colleges throughout the coun-
try. They 'were selected for the
tour after a competitive examina-
tion and are under a pledge to
speak only the Russian language
from the time they enter the So-
viet Union until they leave for
All the students are undergrad-
uates who have studied at least
three years of Russian. They took
the third year this summer in the

University's intensive six-week
program. Their tour expenses are
partially paid by the Carnegie
Corporation. The rest of the funds
are supplied by the students
Prof. Deming Brown of the
S 1 a v i c languages department
stressed the fact that there is
nothing official about this tour.
The students will be staying in ho-
tels and except for 15 regularly
scheduled study periods with their
instructors and a few planned ex-
cursions, they will be completely
on their own in Russia.
"The idea is for them to get
out and converse with the Rus-
sians," Titunik explained. He said
they do not really know the lan-
guage well enough to use it ex-
clusively, but that with the aid of
gestures and facial expressions

they have no difficulty making
themselves understood and often
carry on conversations with Rus-
sians lasting several hours.
Prof. Brown estimated that the
students learn about a semester's
worth of Russian during the four
week trip. They receive four cred-
its for taking the tour.
Suino said that on past tours
the students have encountered no
difficulties in speaking with the
Soviet citizens. "People are very
willing to talk to them-especial-
ly young people," he said.
The group will be doing most
of its travelling by plane with
some railroad trips inside the So-
viet Union. After a stopover in
Holland, they will arrive in Mos-
cow Wednesday and will remain
there until they travel to Lenin-
grad Aug. 16.
Aug. 25 they will visit Odessa

and return to Moscow Aug. 31.
From there they will leave for the
United States Sept. 6.
This is the second year the Uni-
versity "has sent a group to the
Soviet Union for this type of tour.
Prof. Brown said he knew of no
Soviet students visiting the Unit-
ed States under a similar arrange-
Action Halts
The Federal Trade Commission
issued a consent order yesterday
prohibiting an American repre-
sentative for foreign correspond-
ence schools from making any
claims that such institutions could
issue college degrees or diplomas
valid in the United States.
This was the commission's first
such action and the first step in
long-contemplated attempts to
prevent foreign institutions from
doing "diploma-mill" business in
the United States.
Diploma mills are known to have
offered an almost unlimited variety
of degrees, from regular bachelor's
to various professional or pseudo-
professional ones.
The order was issued as a re-
sult of a complaint against Alex
Sandri White, head of Aurea Pub-
lications in Central Valley, N. Y.
It prohibits future claims by
White that any foreign corres-
pondence school is an accredited
institution of higher learning in
this country.
The order also forbids White to
use the term "college" or "uni-
versity" as part of a trade or cor-
porate name of any foreign cor-
respondence school "unless such
school is an institution of higher
learning, teaches subjects in the
arts, sciences or professions to
resident students, and issues col-
lege or university degrees or dip-
lomas recognized in this country."
A commission spokesman said
that the order also served as
warning to others that action
would be taken against cases of
misrepresentation as outlined in
the order.

New Device
Sixteen Venezuelan students are
using an FM radio device through
which English is interpreted to
The students carry a combined
transmitter and transceiver by
which they are able to ask ques-
tions of the interpreter which are
relayed by him to the English
speaker. The students then re-
ceive the answer direct from the
interpreter by means of the wire-
less and portable FM radio. Thus,
the students are able to attend
lectures in English.

this apparatus are attending the

RUSSIAN STUDENTS-For the 19 students pictured, six weeks of intensive training in the Rus-
sian language is about to pay off. They are leaving this morning for a four week visit to the Soviet
Union during which time they will speak only Russian. The students have no regularly planned ac-
tivities but will spend their time conversing with people they meet during their trip.

VOTES 19-3:
United Fund Takes New Vote;
Catholic Agency Wins Entry

NO 8-6416

Bergman's extraordinary
talents are on display.
"Dreams' is a beautifully
constructed Composition.",
"Bergman has seldom
said anything in a more
vigorous and suitable
style. Shrewdly ironic...
lewdly hilarious." -Time

In its second vote in less than
three months, the Ann Arbor Area
United Fund admitted the Catholic
Social Services of Washtenaw,
County to membership.
The vote was 19 to 3 in favor of
admission. In May the UF board
had turned the agency down by
a 15 to 8 vote. Sixteen positive
votes were necessary for admis-
After the agency's third year of
operation next May, it will become
an official member, to be included
in the fund drive of the fall of
Procedural Change
A change in voting procedures
provided that a two-thirds vote
of the board's members - rather
than of the members present -
would be the standard for accept-
ance. This was not true of the
earlier vote, nor were absentee
ballots counted that time as they
were this.

Seventeen board members at-
tended the meeting with five cast-
ing absentee ballots. Two did not
Prior to the vote, there was some
discussion as to whether a re-vote
should be taken so closely follow-
ing the May vote. Board member
Samuel D. Estep said that after
one unfavorable vote, the organiza-
tion usually waits a year before
taking further action.
Objects to Precedent
He said, "I believe it an unwise
precedent to vote this many
months in advance of the agency's
actual admission, and I think we
look less than wise in the eyes of
the community" in voting on the
matter so soon.
"I would vote against admission
for this reason, aside from my
feeling that church - affiliated
groups should not be in," Estep
The objection was also raised
that the action might be binding
upon future boards.
President Charles Hoffman de-
nied that this would be the case.
He said the second vote was call-
ed for since the first one had not
counted absentee ballots or been
determined by two-thrids of the
board's total membership. He also
said that the second vote had
been prompted by the closeness of
the first.
Both the steering committee of
the Bureau of Community Ser-
vices and the budget and admis-
sions committee had unanimously
recommended the second vote.
