Pakistan Rises to Prosperity

Blind Musician Strives
To Popularize Medium

English Proiect Widens Scope

Daily Guest Writer
The name Pakistan was added
to the list of the nations of the
world on the 14th of August, 1947
-15 years ago today-when the
British Indian Empire was parti-
tioned into two independent sov-
ereign states-Pakistan and India.
It was after a century of struggle
and ceaseless effort that the new
state of Pakistan came into being
as an independent homeland for
about ninety five million people-
the largest Muslim state and the
fifth largest of aiy in the world.
Pakistan consists of two geo-
graphical units, East Pakistan and
West Pakistan, separated from.
each other by nearly 1,100 miles
of Indian territory. Their total
area is 364,737 square miles.
Majority Muslim
Nearly eighty-fiv6 per cent of
the people in Pakistan are Mus-
lims while the remainder are


Christians, Buddhists,
Parsees and others.




Pakistan's first Pri
died in 1951, politi
and factions allowed1


country to drift and deteriorate,
both in politics and in economics.
This critical condition continued
until October 7, 1958, when the
history of Pakistan took a new
and dramatic turn. In a bloodless
military revolution Field Marshall
(then General) Mohammad Ayub
Khan took over as Supreme Com-
manler and Chief Martial Law Ad-
ministrator. On the resignation of
the President, Ayub Khan assumed
that office and promised a rep-
resentative form of government
suited to the genius of the people
-a promise fulfilled on June 8,
New Constitution
On that date the nation re-
ceived a new constitution with a
presidential form of government.

Nationwide elections to the pro-
vincial and national assemblies
were held in May this year and
the nation's first elected National
Assembly met in Rawalpindi, the
interim capital, for the first time
on June 8th, marking the restora-
tion of representative government
and the end of martial law.
Pakistan's economy is chiefly
based on agriculture. The main
cash crops are jute, cotton, tea.
sugar cane, oil seed and tobacco'
Among measures of the revolu-
tionary government, land reforms
are particularly significant and
far-reaching. Under these, no one
can own more than 500 acres of
irrigated, or 1,000 acres of un-
irrigated land.
Improve Facilities
Great emphasis has been laid
on the improvement of irrigation
and power facilities. One dam, al-
ready irrigates 2.8 million acres
of virgin land. Others are being
In education, a national com-
mission wa sappointed to study
illiteracy aemong the masses. One
result was free compulsory edu-
cation at the primary level.
There are 50,252 primary and
secondary schools in Pakistan.
Then there are 97 teacher train-
ing schools and colleges, and 403
special schools and colleges, in-
cludinf those for medicine and
surgery. There are 10 universities,
two of which are agricultural
schools, and two others for en-
gineering and technology.
Poor Conditions
Pakistan found herself in a very
depressing industrial condition at
the time of independence, but to-
day factories and mills appear in
all places, producing export goods
such as jute products, textile fab-
rics, medical and surgical instru-
ments and sports goods.
Two large steel mills are to be
established during the second five-
year plan, and pacts have been
signed with Japan, West Germany
and other nations to help the
manufacture of transistor sets,
scooters, and trailers and farm
machinery as soon as possible,
Improvement and expansion of
medical and public health facilities
include a program to wipe out
malaria, and another for control
of tuberculosis. A medical science
institute and an atomic reactor
will start functioning next year.
Today, as Pakistan completes
15 years of independence, her re-
markable progress recalls the
words of the founder of Pakistan,
Mohammad Ali Jinnah, who told
his people, "Nature has given you
everything. You have unlimited'
resources. The foundations of your
state have been laid, and it is now
for you to build, and build as
quickly and as well as you can.
So go ahead, and I wish you God-

(Continued from Page 1)
Also, like some European Ren-
aissance and Baroque instruments
and music, koto music and koto
playing have to be an active part
of the amateur musician's life to
be really enjoyed. The idea of put-
ting on koto music in a concert
hall is a new one. Nowadays the
koto seems to thrive among middle
class amateur musicians who have
enough leisure and money to af-
ford taking up the ancient art.
But Eto is not only interested in
bringing the koto out to the pub-
lic. He also tries, as a composer,
to bring his instrument into the
mainstream of 20th century musi-
cal development, and is consider-
ing changing the instrument itself
-particularly in terms of increas-
ing the number of strings - to
achieve his goal.
Double Strings
At present, the koto, which
measures approximately six feet
in length and nine inches in width,
has 13 strings; Eto would like to at
least double that number, for the
purpose of playing Bach and Beet-
hoven as well as providing himself
with a vehicle of greater range
for composing.
In this wish to expand and
adapt his instrument, Eto feels
himself akin to Andres Segovia,
who brought the guitar away from
homes and campfires to the con-
cert stages of the world.
Pianistic Ambitions
Eto was not always a koto play-
er, but thought at one time of
venturing into a career as a con-
cert pianist. But after his blind-
ness at the age of five, his parents
thought that perhaps the koto
suited him best, because of its
traditional association with blind
players. After meeting Miyagi, Eto
developed into a star pupil.

As an observer of the musical
scene in both countries, Eto finds
a major difference between the
Japanese and American musical
attitude in the large-scale passiv-
ity of the American music lover.
Performing Amateurs
"In Japan there is more empha-
sis on performing for the amateur;
there listening to music arouses
the listener to play the music him-
self," says Eto, while in the U.S.,
listeners are perfectly contented
to bathe in the luxurious sounds of
the hi-fi or stereo reproduction of
music, rejecting even a more active
kind of listening-live listening-
for a more passive variety.
At present, this attitude has en-
tered Japan with the introduction
of Western music-and Western
music has taken over with real
strength. Eto estimates that 70 per
cent of Japanese who are inter-
ested in music are involved with
Western music, and only 30 per,
cent prefer the more old-fashioned;
domestic music.
Listening to the tape of Eto's
Town Hall performance, one is im-
pressed with the wide variety of
sounds he is able to bring forth
from the koto. Sounding at times
exactly like a Russian balalaika,
the instrument can change to at
zither-type sound or can remind
one of a harp, a banjo, or a guitar
at other times.
Now Eto, along with his musical<
colleague, Ueda, a composer, plans
to remain in the United States and
become a citizen, and carry on his
work with the koto from New York,,
leaving to make some tours ofi
his native country at times. His1
is a unique solution to the problemt
of reconciling two cultures thatt
faces the present-day Japanese: he
seeks to bring about a synthesisl
and by so doing, create a new art.I

The Summer Institute program
conducted for the first time here
at the University for teachers of
secondary-school English may be
a continuing program both here
and throughout the nation.
One of twenty host colleges, the
University has followed a pattern
of instruction offered in other in-
stitute centers and growing out
of more than three full years of
Conceived and initiated by the
Commission on English of the Col-
lege Entrance Examination Board,
the project was supported by sub-
stantial grants from a number of
foundations with the objective of
improving the teaching of Eng-
lish in the United States.
Experienced Teachers
On the various campuses this
summer, classroom teachers of
English with at least three years
experience and from all kinds of
schools have been studying under
the guidance of University pro-
fessors who are authorities in their
The hope is that stimulated by
excellent instruction and by as-
sociation with one another these
900 teachers (forty-five at Ann
Arbor), who constitute only about
one per cent of all the teachers
of high-school English in this
country, will return to their
schools not only to improve their
own teaching but to spread the in-
stitute message and to share ideas
and materials developed during the
summer with their colleagues.
The courses they have taken
include literature, composition and
linguistics (this dealing in some
detail with new developments in
the teaching of grammar).
The professors in those disci-
plines this summer have been,
respectively, Prof. Arthur Carr,

...heads program
who has been the director of the
program here, Prof. Carleton
Wells, both of the English depart-
ment, and Prof. Louis Rus of Cal-
vin College.
Reverse Roles
The high school teachers, who
were the students in this program,
were carefully selected and won
$350 grants for the six-to-eight
week session. The final two weeks,
after the three major courses were
concluded, have been devoted to
a workship session under the guid-
ance of Mr. Robert Freier, head
of the Osborn High School Eng-
lish department, Detroit, with the
three professors also available as
resource people.
The goal of the two-week work-
shop is that the theory and know-
ledge accumulated during , the
first six weeks be translated into'
usuable classroom materials and

lesson plans which the teachers
can take back to their schools and

The plan involves mimeograph-
ing projects and their interchange
within the membership of each n-
stitute and eventually the puoli-
cation of the very best ones by
the national Commission on Eng-
lish of the C.E.E.B.
No Standardization
Prof. Carr and all involved in
the project make clear, however,
that they are not seeking avenles
leading to the standardization of
teaching or to any kind of national
"We haven't any rabbits in the
hat," Carr says. "We are seeking
to increase the professional abil-
ity of already capable teachers.
The teaching of English has never
been rationalized from the first
grade through college. We are
seeking rationalization without
uniformity. A good, rational means
of teaching English could be in-
corporated in many different cur-
Carr said the institute would
bear heavily on good expository
prose in writing and 'taoughtful
and sensitive" reading. He adds,
too, that it will not all end o
August 17.
Plan Follow-Up
A fall and winter follow-up is
part of the planning in ull in-
stitutes, and Prof. James W. Down-
er, of the English department, who
taught at the Tulane University
Institute, New Orleans, La., this
summer and participated in the
University program will be in
charge of four sessions on Satur-
days from September through the
early winter.
He will also be visiting individal
schools to observe whatever pro-
grams the teachers choose to fol-
The hope, finally, is that the
impact of the English institutes
scattered across the country this
summer from Massachusetts to
California and from Texas to Wis-
consin will be such that an ob-
servant Federal government will
be moved to support similar in-
stitutes by solid financial aid.
Urges Action
J. N. Hook, for example, who is
coordinator of "Project English"
for the United States Office of
Education urged just such action
in a lecture to institute members
this summer at Ann Arbor.
He said he has real hope that
the so-called "Quality Education"
bill now pending in Congress will
pass. With it would go an imme-
diate $24,000,000 to give nation-
wide support to just such insti-
tutes as have been begun this
summer in the field of English.
Like Prof. Carr, Hook asserted
the opposition of the Office of
Education to any kind of national
curriculum. "It's counter to the
whole American tradition," he
said, "which stands firmly for
local control of schools."
Gordon To Give
Linguistics Lecture
"Linguistic Theory and Lan-
guage Description" will be the sub-
ject of a lecture by Prof. Gordon
E. Peterson of the departments of
speech and electrical engineering

tion Sciences Laboratory at 7:30
