another ticket chairman were
added to the members of the cen-
tral committee to aid in planning,
for 'the annual event.
Last year the dance was trans-
ferred from the Intramural Build-
ing to the League because of an
apparent lack of interest on the
part of the student body. How-
ever, the change was fortunate,
Cohn said, since the dance made
a profit of about $250.
In the past, the J-Hop was the
highlight of the, winter social

Student Life
To Show International
Aspect of University
George Zimbel, a free - lance
photographer, is at the University
this month to take a series of pic-
tures for the United States Infor-
mation Agency (USIA).
The USIA, which distributes in-
formation about the United States
throughout the world, is planning
a picture exhibit on African and
Asian students at American uni-
versities, to be displayed in those
countries. Zimbel is also taking
several pictures to be used by the
USIA in a booklet on life at the
American University to be dis-
tributed throughout the world.
The physical exhibit will show
scenes specifically from the Uni-
versity, which was chosen because
of the great number of foreign
students that come here yearly,
Zimbel said. Between 100 and 200
pictures will be used for the exhibit
out of the expected 4,000 he will
probably take, he added.
The photographicstory on
American universities will focus
on how the foreign student re-
acts both pro and con to American
people, the American educational
system and the community outside
the campus.
Zimbel said he hopes to give his
pictures a "freshness of vision"
which some foreign students, who
have never visited the United
States before, have.
Zimbel, who has been here since
the beginning of April, has al-
ready taken photographs of for-
eign students in primarily social
activities. On a 30-day assign-
ment, he has already taken about
2,000 pictures and plans to con-
centrate the remainder on the
academic life of the student.
