Interest in Russian scientific
studies and the American diplo-
matic service account in large
part, for the increase in the num-
ber of students studying the Rus-
sian language, Professor Lila Parg-
ment of the Russian department
said yesterday.
A poll of students taking Rus-
sian has been taken at various
schools in the United States and
the results indicate why students
are studying the language.
Research in medicine and chem-
istry by Russian scientists havj
interested many students, Prof.
Pargment said. Other students

uage in the hope that it will help
them in business, Prof. Pargment
said. A smaller group of students,
she added, are interested solely in
reading Russian literature in its
original form.
For Foreign Correspondents
Discussing Russian as an aid to
foreign correspondents in Russia,1
she stated, that to her knowledge.
there were only three American
representatives of the press in1
Russia who could speak Russian
at all, and two of these were of1
Russian origin.
Several of her students, she said,
served as translators during the,
war, one in the OSS. Another stu-
dent is teaching Russian in a navy
school in Washington.T
200 Students Enrolled
About 200 students are enrolled
in the department's course in Rus-
sian literature and the theatre,
which is given in English. The
course in Russian literature, which
covers two semesters, begins with
the early writers and ends with
contemporary authors. The social t
conditions which have affectedt
literature in Russia are discussedf
by Prof. Pargment with her class-
es. Next year an advanced coursef
in Russian poetry and the* theatre
will be given in the Russian lang-_
"It is amazing to discover how i
well Americans can pronouncer
Russian," Prof. Pargment added.t
"I think that can be partly ex-
plained by the fact that both lang- r
uages are rich in sound."k
Other Instructors
There are three other instruc- d
tors in the Russian department n
besides Prof. Pargment. They are,
Leonid Ignatieff, Mrs. Edith Na- i
gil, and Mrs. Wiima Miron.
Prof. Pargment was born in Rus- g
sia and attended the University
of St. Petersburg before going to
France with her husband. She has
visited the Soviet Union four times
since 1927, the last time in 1936,
when she remained there for seven
months when she studied Soviet
literature, the theatre, and the
school system.
Air Navigation
Subject of Talk
Prof. Harry C. Carver of the w
math department, wartime navi-
g tion expert with the air forces,
spoke last night before the Air
Forces Association on naviga-
tional problems which facedc
bomber men in Europe.I
Prof. Carver, who went through
navigator's cadet training before t

observations of bombing results 0
for a statistical analysis of bomb- g
ing error probability for the 8th
Air Force. C
Speaking of present naviga-a
tional problems, Prof. Carver said c
that the advent of supersonic R
speeds in aircraft makes it neces- f
sary for navigators to re-learn f
their science.
Prof. Carver also discussed navi-
gation problems in polar regions
in connection with the current
Byrd expedition.

Angry Horde
Protests Ban

(kdolege Paralyzed
By Education Issue
Shouting vile epithets into the
ears of apathetic passers-by, an
angry horde of students yesterday
crowded into the crystal rotunda
of the Student Publications
Building, protesting the recent
ban of the March Gargoyle, which
was to have gone on sale Friday.
William Schmetz, janitor of
the building, addressed the as-
sembled crowd. "Let's get off the
lawn, eh?" he stated.
Several students, after joining
in the preliminary demonstra-
tions, expressed regret. "I thought
this was the line for the Willow
Village bus," one freshman com-
"In any liberal democracy free-
dom of speech is essential to pre-
serve the rights of the minority
against the overwhelming voice of
the majority," Markham B. Mu-
chado, who issued the official
prolamation of the ban yesterday,
declared, "but by Jingoes, this is
too much !"
"The Gargoyle has no regard
for ethics," Beauregard J. Nore-
gard, Gargoylist party candidate
for a seat in the Student Legisla-
ture, said in explaining to the
mob why the educational March
ssue was banned. "The Garg staff
s offering a complete 10-year ed-
ucation in 16 pages for only 25c
o all students, whether Michigan
residents or outstate. Everyone
knows that since it is twice as
hai'd to educate an outstate stu-
dent, his tuition fee should be
nore than twice as much."
The mob dispcrsed quietly when
t was announced that the Ann
Arbor rainy season would not be-
gin until next week.
