When retired Fullerton pathologist Thomas Jones visited Baku in the Soviet republic of Azerbaijan last summer, he saw firsthand the ethnic tension and violence that has led to the deaths of about 150 Armenians and Azerbaijanis. Jones, 72, and his wife, Elizabeth, had just left their hotel on Lenin Square when they met two university students on the sidewalk. The students were friendly and struck up a conversation in English.

Feldman, a Placentia tour operator, is organizing a group of Southern California single persons to meet singles in three Soviet cities this summer.

When the fall semester ended last month, Cal State Fullerton professor Robert S. Feldman boarded a flight for Leningrad so hastily that he had to grade final examinations as he crossed the Atlantic. Feldman, director of the university's Russian and East European Area Studies program, said the quick exit was worth the trouble. He sealed a deal for his small Placentia travel company that he said makes him the first American to deal directly for rooms at hotels in the Soviet Union.

The black and white photo is like many that came from the Soviet Union during the failed coup last month, showing angered citizens crowding to hear speakers rail against the hard-line movement. But what's different about this one is the grainy image of a tour bus oddly parked in the middle of melee. "That's us--there we are," said Cal State Fullerton professor Robert S. Feldman, pointing to the picture published Aug. 21 in Izvestia, the Soviet national newspaper.
