a predominantly senior class on
international relations at tie high
school. The class is conducted by

The students have received these
talks by visiting students "very
well", March said. The visitors dis-

its relations with the United States
since that time.
Several of them bring slides to

Among the visitors who have al-
ready spoken to the class are Dr.

Partially coordinated with the
classroom lectures is a library dis-
play of items from various foreign
countries. International students
bring the display objects into Miss
Tjotis who then arranges the dis-
play case in the high school li-
brary. Tunisian, Iranian and Latin
American exhibits have been
shown this year.
The displays are not entirely co-
