By HENRY LEE
"The 30-day student tour to the
Soviet Union is an experiment in
language learning," Prof. Dem-
ing B. Brown, chairman of the
Slavic languages and literature
department, said yesterday.
Students who have had at least
two years of college Russian or
the equivalent will take a prepar-
atory course for eight weeks this
summer before leaving. This pro-
gram which is only open to under-
graduates, will provide eight se-
mester-hours of credit for sum-
mer school and four credit hours
for the study-trip..
Upon leaving for Russia, the
students must sign a pledge that
only Russian will be spoken. The
faculty supervisors have the right
to deny credit or even send any
students back home if the pledge
is broken.
"We will visit places such as
Leningrad, Moscow, Stalingrad,
or Kiev," Prof. Brown said. In-
struction will be continued dur-
ing the 30-day trip in the Soviet
Union.
Prof. Brown said the tour was
tried by the University of Indi-
ana last summer; apparently it
was successful because Indiana is
haying another one this year.

"This program is not restricted
to University students." Applica-
tions will be available upon re-
quest Monday at the office of the
Slavic languages and literature'
department.
All students will be expected to
meet the expense of their study
here and their travel within the
United States.
Dearborn
To Offer
New Classes
The University's Dearborn Cen-
ter will include the necessary
courses for certification as ele-
mentary and secondary teachers
in the liberal arts program which
will open next fall.
William E. Stirton, vice-presi-
dent and director of Dearborn
Center, said the addition to the
program is being made following
surveys which indicate there is
need in the area for such courses.

Folk singer, Guy Carawan, will
sing old ballads, songs of- love,
work and play, blues spirituals,
and hoedowns at 8:00 p.m. Fri-
day in Trueblood Aud. in the
Frieze Bdlg.
Carawan, who is being present-
ed by the University's Folklore
Soceity, is the first performer ever
sponsored by this group. General
admission is $1.25 or $1.00 for
members of the Society.
Carawan, who plays guitar,
banjo and flute, first became in-
terested in folksinging at college
parties in Los Angeles in 1948. It
was at this time that he bought
his first guitar.
Graduating with a master's de-
gree in sociology, Carawan toured
the mountains of Tennessee and
North Carolina in the summer of
'52.
He and his two companions
sang on street corners for quarters
in the towns and worked from
farmstead to farmstead in the
country. They ended their adven-
ture with a two weeks' visit to
Mesic, North Carolina where the
Carawan family had its roots.
"I learned more about Southern
farm life and music that summer
than I have from all the books
I've' read or records I've listened
to," Carawan said.
He has just started recording
and appearing on the stage in
the last few years.

Petitioning
For League
Posts Opeii
By LYNNE FRIEDMAN
"Casualness is the keynote of all
our interviews," Mary Wilcox, '60,
chairman of the Interviewing and
Nominating Committee of the
Women's League explained.
Petitioning for all League posi-
tions is now open and will con-
tinue through Monday, March 7,
Miss Wilcox said. Interviews for
Frosh Weekend Central Committee
will be held from March 7 to 11,
but those for all other positions
will, extend from March 7 to 18.
Cites Purpose
The purpose of the informal
fifteen-minute interviews is not to
find out whether the candidate
can answer "Yes" or "No" ques-
tions correctly, Miss Wilcox em-
phasized. The I & N committee
simply is eager to hear each appli-
cant expound her ideas concerning
the position she seeks.
Petition forms may be obtained
in the League Undergraduate Of-
fice or from dormitory represen-
tatives.
Positions now open include all
League executive offices: president,
internal vice-president, coordinat-
ing vice-president, vice-president
in charge of class projects, and
the vice-president in charge of
finance.
n n .Council Open
Also available to interested wom-
en is membership in the League
Council, which is composed of the
chairmen of the various educa-
tional, service, and social com-
mittees.
Women may also apply for a
position on the Women's Judiciary
Council, the Interviewing and
Nominating Committee, and the
central committees of Frosh
Weekend and Junior Girls' Play.
The members of the Frosh Week-
end Central committee will be an-
nounced on March 16, and the
holders of all other positions will
be named on April 11 at the
League Installation Night Cere-
mony.
