STUDENT COMMITT

STANLEY TANNER, '7, SELECTEI)
,AS ONE OF GROUP OF
7 VISITroS
19 SCHOOLS REPRESENTED
General Soviet Student Bureau Will
Act As Host To Expedition ,
During Investigation
Stanley Tanner, '27, has been se-
lected as the delegate of the University
in the proposed visit to Russia this
summer. Tanner will make one of a
group of 75 students representing 19
schools and colleges throughout the
country. The object ,of the expedition
is to study internal conditions in So-
viet Russia in order to correct and
bring up-to-date the impressions in
this country.
The students will leave in two
groups, the first sailing June 15, the
second June 29. The Central Student
Bureau of the Russian Government
will be official host too the visitors,
providing interpreters, chaperones, en-
tertainment and first-class passage on
Soviet trains and river-boats.
After seeing Leningrad and Moscow,
the delegation will divide into four
groups, industry, education, politics,
and Russo-Chinese situation. The last-
named group will go across Siberia to
China, and return via the Pacific. The
first group will investigate the wood-
works, the textile manufactures, the
mineral regions in the Iral mountains,
and the Ikon painting. The second will
visit the children's colony and the
workers home, and will journey to the
Riviera of Russia-the Black Sea.
The third will investigate the pol-
itics of the county. It will go to the
Yarsmark, the Fair, and then down the
Volga by boat to Georgia, the Paris of
the Near East, the Caspian Sea, Bahu,
the oil city and the land of the Don
Cossacks.
The student delegation is a spon-
taneous student movement arising be-
cause of the conflicting red and white
propaganda which has come to this
country about Russia. The students of
nineteen institutions of America are
sending delegates to the Soviet Repub-
lic, and these delegates will, report in
the fall what they have observed.
The executive committee consists
of Hillmen Bishop of Columbia; Wil-
liam Davis; Beatrice Heiman of Bar-
nard; and John Afree of New York
University. The chief adviser of the
delegation is Samuel Cahan, instructor
in Journalism at Syracuse University.
Within the next year 871 miles of
new railway lines will be opened in
India.

FORMER STUDENT
EXPLAINS SYSTEM
IN SOUTH AFRICA
IOWA-America's college system
differs very greatly from that used
in South Africa, according to J. W.
Groenewald, a student of Iowa State I
university who comes from George,
a town in Cape Province, Union of
South Africa. Explaining the method
used in the universities of his native
land, the South African pointed out
the Grootfontein Agricultural college,
which he attended before coming to
America as an example.
In that school, he said, the student
governing power is almost absolute,
'the president of the Student Council
being practically the' head of the col-
lege. This power extends even to the
expulsion of students, depending on
the vote of the council.
According to droenewald, the spirit
of Anerican colleges is much better
in that here the student attacks his
work in a more business-like manner,
and seems to derive greater benefit
from it. He also commended the spirit
of democracy through which men here !
are respected for earning their way
through school., In the South African,
university, he pointed out, any type
of outside work while attending school
is frowned upon, those "guilty" of it
being practically ostracised.
