Eleven upper classmen at Stevens Point State University will earn one academic credit next month through visits to such places as the Bolshoi Theater, Russian factories and collective farms and landmarks that have made cities behind the Iron Curtain famous.

They will be part of a contingent of 179 students and faculty from the Wiscosnin State University System who will leave by a chartered jet plane from Chicago on April 1, 1971 for a three week tour of Russia and Eastern Europe.

They will fly to Leningrad, then divide into six groups, each with its own itinerary.

Leading the delegation from Stevens Point will be Dr. Adrian Van Lieshout of the geography department. Two other faculty members, Dr. William Stielstra, vice president for student affairs, and James Sebanc of the geography department, also will be in the group.

A local student taking this tour is Barbara Liebzeit, a sophomore sociology major and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Liebzeit of Route 2, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.).

This is the third consecutive year the system has sponsored such a travel study program, and it has had the blessing of administrators here, because the 12,000 mile trip ties in with the school's Russian and East European Study Program.

With the Stevens Point students will be persons from Eau Claire, La Crosse, Oshkosh, Platteville, River Falls, Stout, Superior, and Whitewater.

Head the total program will be Professor Robert Frost, director of the Institute for International Studies at Platteville.
