'' Advances
Three engineering college in-
structors were promoted to assist-
ant professor by the Regents at
yesterday's meeting.
Frederick K. Boutwell, an in-
structor at the University since
1949 when he began work here on
his master's and doctorate degrees
in mechanical engineering, was
named to a new position.
Howard Diamond, a University
graduate who earned his doctorate
here, will serve half-time in the
electrical enginering department.

cause they were old.
In addition, the Chinese stu-

He couldn't recall if the strike
was effective.
Both men remarked that the
number of foreign students at
Moscow University was very large.

Many Foreigners Attended
There were many students from
all the satellite countries, the
Afro-Asian bloc and from India,
he continued. The number from
Western European countries was
not very large.
"Some governments of professed
non-Communist countries pay to
send their students to Russian
universities," Luther said. But the
Soviet government pays for both
the educational and transporta-

tional expenses of students from
uncommitted nations.
"Each of us received a monthly
stipend of $150 from the Soviets,"
Swayze aded. "It was adequate."
All Graduates
Each of the Americans was a
graduate student in Russian or
Soviet studies. "The majority were
historians," Luther recalled, "but
there were students of Russian
and Soviet literature, geography,
economics, sociology and political
science among us."
On the basis of interviews,
knowledge of the Russian langu-
age, and scholastic achievement,
a group of professors at? universi-
ties boasting large programs in
Russian studies selected the 22
exchange students from approxi-
mately 70 who applied.
"All the United States did was
to sign the agrement," Swayze
reported. "The rest was handled
by the professors."
Luther and Swayze will speak to
the general public of their ex-
periences in the Soviet Union on
Oct. 8. The time and place will
be announced at a later date.
