However, there is one group on the UNC campus whose purpose, is different. Four years ago University of North Carolina students, under the auspices of the YMCA- YWCA, organized Seminars Abroad for the purpose of help ing serious minded students add educational value to their fun in Europe. Unlike the professional tours for sightseeing tourists, Semi nars Abroad was designed for the student who was willing to take part in the planning and study that it required. The first seminar of 30 Caro lina students in the summer of 1958 was successful enough so that it has been repeated and broadened every summer since. Seminars Abroad consists of two parts: 1) a two-month travel program in Europe dur ing the summer, and 2) a series of seminars and meetings dur ing the second semester of the school year in preparation of the summer. A three-day trip to Washing ton in March to meet with Fed eral Government and State De partment officials is part of the preparation for the summer tour. The object of Seminars Abroad is to enable American students to meet people of other countries in order to not only better understand other RED EXPLORERS PROGRESS MOSCOW (UPI) Soviet ex plorers r'have reached a point 540 miles inland from the Davies Sea to complete the first phase of the sixth Soviet ant arctic expedition, Tass reported Thursday.
