Gubin, a 33-year-old chemical
researc4 physicist, noted that
Soviet students have their ex-
ams during only one month in
each semester. It is not uncom-
mon for students to do very,
little studying until then. Here
att the University, the two point-
ed out, students tend to study
very hard throughout the se-
mester.
DURING THEIR STAY in the
U.S., the two professors have
visited Washington, D.C., Chica-
go, St. Louis and Detroit.
"Before I came to the United
States I expected the entire
country to look like downtown
Chicago, I was surprised to see
such low buildings and spread
out areas as there are in Ann
Arbor," Gubin said.
"The Renaissance Center in
Detroit is a very nice build-
ing," he added. "It's just
strange for us to see such a
big city with no people in it."
GENERALLY the two have
received a warm welcome from
Americans. In fact, only once
have they had any difficulty.
