Aid Asked For Exchange
O USSR, U.S. Students

Russian-American student ex-
change has often been proposed as
a means to increased understand-
tng between the United States
and the Soviet Union.
In most cases, it is an instance
of "smuch talk, little action." How-
ever, an enterprising young wo-
man, Nadya Spassenko, a Univer-
sity graduate, decided that this
cause was an important one and
has embarked on a one woman
cartpaign to bring about the ex-
Miss Spassenko has approached
the Ford Foundation with the idea
of setting up a fund to finance
American students who wish to
study in Russia. She spoke to a
S t a t e Departmenti official in
charge of promoting Russian Am-
erican cultural exchange, and re-
ceived a favorable reply.
-She next confronted the Cultur-
al Relations Committee of the Uni-
versity with the idea that the Uni-
versity should be the pioneer in
the exchange program.
James M. Davis, director of the
International Center and a mem-
ber of the Cultural Relations Com-
mittee reported the committee in
favor of the idea with certain qual-
Any Russian brought to the
University as part of the exchange
program would have to be cleared
with the State Department.
Problems concerning an Ameri-
can student going to Russia were
also discussed by Davis. First dif-
ficulty would be finding an Ameri-
can student who wants to go to
USSR. Secondly the State De-
partment must give him or her
its stamp of approval and lastly a
sponsoring agency such as the
Ford Foundation must be secured.
Use of this column is restricted to
ganizations. Registration forms are
available.in the Office of Student Af-
fairs, 1020 Administration Building.
Registration for' the current semester

DeWitt C. Baldwin, director of
Lane Hall who recently completed
an educational tour throughout
the Soviet Union where he talked
with the chairman and vice-chair-
man of the Committee on Youth
in the Soviet Union, commented
favorably on the idea.
While the Soviet government
will not favor exchange of stu-
dents until red tape such as the
finger-printing process is abolish-
ed, Baldwin said there is a possi-
bility that students could be given
a special status and therefore not
be subjected to finger-printing.
Miss Spassenko, in addition to
the student exchange program, in-
dicated that a wider, cultural ex-
change could be affected. As a fac-
tor in this exchange, she proposed
that correspondence be set up be-
tween herself and the students at
the University through the Daily.
She will be a student at Moscow
University as a part of the ex-
change program if it is effected
or, if it is not, she will study in-
Through this correspondence,
questions from American students
would be answered by Russians
and vice versa.
