Families who want to practice a little bit of local good will can house a Russian student for a month under the International Education Forum. Fifteen Russian students will land March 20 in Orange County and need temporary shelter as they tour Southern California. A delay in processing student visa applications before the trip has forced forum organizers to scramble to find homes for the students.

When Domingo Co arrived in 1987, he entered a fully subsidized student world teeming with thousands of other Africans and fantasized about his fabulous academic future. Eight years later, he's broke, he's the only African student left in his department and he dreams about nothing but his plane ticket back to Guinea this summer. The collapse of communism and the economic turbulence that followed hit many Russians hard.

The 29 years that Russia had a colony in California are relived almost every Thursday and Friday by children dressed in Russian costumes at this historic fort perched on a remote Northern California headland. Thirty elementary school boys and girls from throughout the state each week spend two days and a night inside the 15-foot high redwood walls, turning back the clock to the years 1812 to 1841.

Anastassia Titova said she and a contingent of Russian visitors brought Moscow weather to Orange with them, but she plans to take home "some of the spirit" of the friendly people they have met here. Titova was one of three teachers who accompanied their principal and 17 students from Moscow International Planet School in the Novo Kosino district to practice their English skills and meet citizens of their sister city, Orange.

He's only been here about a week, but Nickolay Belicov has already made up his mind. "I like America very much," the 10-year-old from Vladivostok, Russia, said during a respite from baseball practice at Meadow Oaks Camp in Calabasas this week. Nickolay is visiting the United States with Olga Kravchemko, 12, on a monthlong exchange program sponsored by Meadow Oaks School.

African students at Russia's University of Friendship of Peoples were severely beaten by riot police Wednesday during a demonstration protesting the slaying of a student from Zimbabwe by a Russian policeman. The killing of the 25-year-old history student and the attack on peaceful demonstrators by baton-wielding, helmeted police were proof, the students say, of the systematic abuse they face in Moscow because of their skin color. One policeman yelled out, "I will kill you, swine!"

"Bilingual Charter School Hopes to Be a Model, in Any Language" (April 9) states that in kindergarten and first grade at the LAUSD Multicultural Learning Center, students are immersed in Spanish-only instruction about 90% of the day. But why don't the Spanish-speaking children and their families feel proud about their ability to learn and speak perfect English? That's the goal for students from Russia or Eastern Europe. They learn to speak English, and they can still feel proud of their backgrounds.

On the first day of Hanukkah, an international class of 11 students from the Emek Hebrew Academy gathered a few hours before Sunday's sunset to light for the first time their hand-crafted menorahs--the products of simultaneous lessons in woodworking and Jewish law. Under the tutelage of Rabbi Eleazar Eidlitz, the Orthodox students at the North Hollywood school spent the past week putting the finishing touches on their menorahs, some of which carry political and personal messages.

Iran has slowly but steadily increased its ability to enrich uranium despite international calls to halt its nuclear activities, experts at the International Atomic Energy Agency say in a report released Tuesday. The report, which became public before a meeting next week by the agency's board of governors, emphasizes that Iran's refusal to answer inspectors' questions about its nuclear activities makes it impossible for the IAEA "to confirm the peaceful nature of Iran's program."

Adam Bruno Ulam, one of the world's most respected experts on Russia and the Soviet Union who wrote 18 books, taught such students as Robert F. Kennedy and Henry Kissinger at Harvard's Russian Research Center and advised several American presidents on foreign policy, has died. He was 77. Ulam, who was on the Harvard faculty from 1947 until his retirement in 1992, died Tuesday in Cambridge, Mass., after a long illness, his family announced through university officials.
