According to the brochure (page I 1 "The Summer Session is officially an organizational pari of the Moscow State University" and "The Moscow University Summer Session is sponsored in the Soviet I'nion by the Peoples' Commissariat of Education of the Russian Socialist Federated Son id Republic; by VOKS, the All- 1 11 ion Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries; and by lnlour- isl. the Slate Travel Company of the- U.S.S.R. Intourist, through its Educational Department, will supply information lo persons interested. VOKS was the subject of testimony before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee Healings (July 25. 1951- .luii" 20. 19521 by two witnesses both of win mi staled under oath that it was an operation supervised by the Communist Parly, According to one witness the official translation of these letters is: "Society for Cultural Relations Between Soviet Union and Foreign Countries." He added, "Actually it was one of the t-eeve-i organizations for. again, these double Hacks, gelling information from abroad to the Sovie-i Intelligence, and sending infiltration of ideas and selling Communisl ideas to the west." The 1933 announcement of the 1933 Seminar carried these statements under the heading "Seminar Aims": "The Russian Revolution has brought on one of the greatest social upheavals of all time. Socialism has been given microscopic trials before, but never on such a Gargantuan scale. Now, in our own times and under our very eyes, the world's mosl important experiment in communism is taking place. The inspirational opportunities for study and observation are unlimited. Would you like to have been an observer in France dining the French Revolution? The present opportunity in Russia is of equal significance'. The First Russian Seminar will take advantage of this opportunity. "Those her whom ihe Seminar will be a success, those who derive the greatest benefit therefrom, those who will c-cinit- away heavily laden with thought- provoking experiences and unforgettable memories, will be those members who have entered into the spirit of the Sem inar. This may be tersely worded as follows: 'We are interested in seeing and understanding. We desire something more lasting than the memory of deluxe accommodations. For these we do not even need lo leave our American homes where these comforts abound, but Russia has something to show us. Let us try to comprehend.' " The 1934 session was known as the American Institute of Moscow University (instead of the Anglo-American Institute); and according to a report entitled "Report For the Institute of International Education" it functioned under the auspices of: 1. The Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries — VOKS 2. The All-Union Travel Company Intourist The lectures were held in the morning, and ihe afternoons were devoted to lie-lei nips. 130 such excursions being made.

The following reference Ice ihe previous sessions is also taken from the 1935 announcement: "Rasing their judgment upon the undeniable success of these ventures, the Soviet Educational authorities organized at the I niyersily of Moscow, an Anglo-American Section offering full and regular instruction in English. The students and professors of the 1933 and 1934 sessions approved the academic advantages of the plan, which enabled the student to travel dining his vacation period and at the same time to further his own professional experience. It is a plan thai has the full support of the foremost educators and scientists of the Sen ic-l I nion." One of the academic regulations was: "2. The course.
