Abstract: Let $ R$ be a semiprime ring, $ G$ a finite group of automorphisms of $ R$ and $ B$ the algebra of the group. (A) If $ R$ is left primitive and $ B$ is $ G$-simple then the fixed subring $ {R^G}$ is left primitive. (B) If $ B$ is semiprime and $ {R^G}$ is a left Goldie ring, then $ R$ can be embedded in a free left $ {R^G}$-module of finite rank. Consequently if $ {R^G}$ is left Noetherian, $ R $ is left Noetherian.
