Frederick Cooper, assistant professor of African History, said yesterday that beginning next summer he will spend a year in Africa researching "the special history of railways in Kenya from 1961 to 1963."

Rulan C. Pian '44, professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations and Music, said yesterday she will spend next year in Hong Kong finishing the transcriptions of three Peking operas she recorded in 1964, and then beginning an outline of topics in Chinese music.
