Julene Mroczenski, Abbotsford (Clark Co., Wis.), is one of 13 students of Wisconsin State University, Eau Claire, who is preparing to tour the Soviet Union and eastern Europe April 1 through April 20. The students will be accompanied by two faculty members, Dr. Jack M. Lauber, associate professor of history and coordinator of the tour for the Eau Claire campus, and Richard G. Woodford, instructor of history and student of Russian and far eastern culture.

The 15 WSU, Eau Claire representatives will join 169 students and faculty from the eight other Wisconsin State Universities at Chicago to leave for the third annual tour of the Soviet Union and eastern Europe.

The group will fly directly to Leningrad, where they will divide into six tour groups. The Eau Claire contingent will be joined by 12 students and faculty from the La Crosse campus to form one group that will spend two weeks touring Leningrad, Moscow and Kiev. Other groupls will tour the various Baltic states and the capitals of Romania and Hungary.

Dr. Lauder indicated that the Eau Claire group will leave Kiev by air for the provincial town of Lvov, where they will take the train to Warsaw, Poland. They will remain in Warsaw for two days and then fly by Polish Airlines to Prague, Czechoslovakia, where they will meet the rest of the state university groups for the return flight to Chicago.

Twelve of the 13 students taking the trip are enrolled in a special Soviet seminar coures, an inter-departmental offering coordinated by Dr. Lauber, and will earn three academic credits for the course work and tour. Others are participating on a non-credit baises because of a special interest in Soviet contemporary life. Having accompanied the tour the past two years, Dr. Lauber commented, "The broadening experience of contact with such a different society has been the most educational part of the tour for these students."
