FOREIGN EDUCATION:
Student Views Arab Schools

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second in a five-part series on for-
eign education.)
By ELLEN SILVERMAN
Government run high schools in
Lebanon have produced a more
educationally advanced country
than most Middle Eastern na-
tions, Nabil Abdel-Baki, Grad,
says.
Yet, less than one per cent of
the people secure higher educa-
tion, because most of the univer-
sities are not government run, he
says.
Education is expensive and
everyone who goes to college is
expected to pay his own way, he
explains.
Few Scholarships
The colleges and universities in
Lebanon offer few scholarships or
grants to the students who have
graduated f r o m private high
schools. It is assumed that if the
student can pay for a private high
school, then he can carry the bur-
den of college education unaided,
Abdel-Baki continued..
There are six universities in the

' u

country. They are: the American
University of Beirut, St. Joseph
University, the Lebanese Univer-
sity, the Beirut College for Wom-
en, the Lebanese University, and
the Academic Lebanese des Beaux
Arts.
All of the universities are lo-
cated in the capital city of Beirut.
"There are a few extensions in
the other districts of the country,"
but Lebanon is so small that trav-
eling to the capital city poses little
problem, he explained.
American University
The American University is the
largest institution of its type in
the Middle East, he continues.
The enrollment of four thousand
is composed of Arabs as well as
foreign students.
The Lebanese University is the
only one of the six schools which
is operated by the government. It
is not, however, less expensive
than the private schools.
The Academic Lebanese des
Beaux Arts is essentially for those
students interested in art and pos-
sessing artistic talent. Courses of-

ERNEST KRAMER, baritone
on the theme
"In Search of a Definition of Jewish Music"
Zwerdling-Cohn Chapel 1429 Hill Street
All are Welcome

fered include studies in sculpture,
painting, design and music.
Arabic Newest
The Arabic University of Beirut
is the newest school in Lebanon.
Plans call for the beginning of
full scale operations next year.
With the opening of this school
the opportunity for more students
to attend college will naturally in-
crease.
"Beirut is called the Paris of the
Middle East," Abdel-Baki notes.
In the city there are facilities for
swimming or sailing in the Medi-
terranean, while in 20 minutes one
is able to reach areas which are
very good for skiing and other
winter sports.
Graduate Work
For more advanced or post-
graduate work, students travel to
universities in other countries.
Because many of the students
graduate from French- or British-
run high schools, they often travel
to these countries to continue their
education,
In high school, Abdel-Baki says,
courses are more difficult. "In my
last years in high school I was
taking 18-20 courses," he ex-
plained.
In comparing American and
Lebanese universities, he feels
that they are very similar in de-
gree of difficulty.
Show Closes
In Royal Oak'
The International Show Tour
wound up its fifth annual state-
wide tour yesterday in Royal Oak
after a performance to a capacity
crowd here Friday night.
Entitled "The Peace Corps Goes
Abroad," the show was composed
of the talents of 29 University
international students.
Featuring native songs and
dances, the program showed pros-
pective Peace Corps members the
customs they would have to ap-
preciate in their land of service.
The purpose of the show was to
enable the foreign students to
meet more American families, Ar-
thur Milne, director of the pro-
duction and counselor of the In-
ternational Center, explained.
