at Russias Colleges fJIGHER EDUCATION in the Soviet Union was the object of a brief but intensive study not so long ago by a distinguished delegation of American educators The group was headed by Doctor Edward II LitchfieJd chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh Its report assuredly written by Doctor Litchfield and concurred in by his colleagues has just been brought to my attention The subject holds a special in terest for me because not so Ion ago I too had a closeup look a education in Russia My contact with higher education were ac mittedly of a fleeting nature one day at the University of Mos cow for example But that wa enough to give me some impres sions and sharpen my interest in the appraisal by other American of that and other Russian univer sitics and technical schools The Lilchfield group travelet an official delegation from the United States under the reccn AmericanSoviet agreement for the exchange of persons in scien tific and cultural fields Midwest erners in the party were Presi dent Herman B Wells of Indiana University and President Frank lin D Murphy of the University of Kansas THE MISSION was confined to 15 days on the job During that time tho group as a whole or sev eral individual members visitec 18 institutions of higher learning including universities and re search and technical institutes The survey covered miles and reached into Central Asia as well as Moscow and Leningrad in European Russia Excepl for those institutions set up to train leaders for the Com munist party there was a rather free access to information and a generally friendly attitude on the part of faculties and administra tors In the questions put to the Americans however there was a reflection of the partyinspired propaganda against the United States and our institutions But the friendliness of the Rus sian people as a whole was as the report on the mission points out too spontaneous and too widespread to have been simu That was my testimony too during my time in Kiev Mos cow and Leningrad Never once was I made to feel unwanted or unwelcome because I was known to be an American AT THE OUTSET Chancellor Litchfield explained that valid comparisons between American and Communist education are not possible because of basic differ ences in the fundamental social structure of the two nations In Thli Popfr or Two SectionsSection OM This
