There are 2,500 Russian stu-
dents learning English for every
American student learning Rus-
sian, according to Prof. Deming
B. Brown, chairman of the De-
partment of Slavic Languages and
Literatures.
Although "American interest in
Russian is . . . reawakening,"
Prof. Brown noted that 60 per
cent of Russian college students
not only read English, but have a
speaking ability in it. "Russians
start a foreign language in the
fifth grade and continue six years
of it before entering college," he
said.
After what Prof. Brown called
a "frantic unhealthy boom" in the
study of Russian during World
War II, "the growth is beginning
again . . . and including the Slavic
languages such as Polish, Yugo-
slavian and Czech.
"This growth is beginning- to
show in the high schools," Prof.
Brown said. "They are offering
study of Russian to juniors and
seniors."
The University is offering an
eight-week course in Russian dur-
ing the summer session, designed
primarily for high school and
junior college teachers. The sum-
mer program will also include a
survey course on Soviet land, peo-
ple, history, government and econ-
omv.

The Regents approved four ap-
pointments to the faculty of the
literary college at their June
meeting.
Prof. Margaret A. Judson, chair-
man of the history and political
science department of Douglass
College, Rutgers University, was
appointed Alice Freeman Palmer

school graduating classes. Eighty-
three per cent came from the top
half of theirThigh school class.
