Teach-in\ELI Policy: Separate Foreign, American Students
Bipartisan Group To Protest Over
Teachers' Action, Attack Policies
By ROBERT MOORE
There will be tired eyes and lively discussion tonight when the
Faculty Committee to Stop the War in Viet Nam puts on its all-
night, all-morning teach-in to consider alternative positions to
present American foreign policy.
But there will also be dissent. A bi-partisan group of "about 100"
will demonstrate at 8:30 tonight in front of Angell Hall to protest
"propagandizing under the guise of education," announced Alan
Sager, '66L, a member of the Executive Board of the University
Sager said that members of the group will question speakers at
conferences and speak out in defense of government policy at the
- midnight rally planned by the
l Faculty Committee.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first article in a two part series ex-
ploring the English Language institute's policy of not allowing their
students who live in the quads to room with Americans.
By BRUCE WASSERSTEIN
While fierce debate rages over the deleterious effects of reduc-
ing the percentage of out of state students, many of the people
who truely give the University its cosmopolitan atmosphere, the
foreign students, are separated from Americans by the official
policy of the English Language Institute (ELI).
The ELI teaches English to about 125 foreign students each
semester. Although most of them come 'from Latin America,
students also hail from Japan, Europe and Africa.
Among the group are teenagers who wish to learn English
so that they can enroll for a degree at an American university,
businessmen who find English a necessity if they want to com-
municate with the executives of the American companies in their
countries and foreign scholars who seek to put another language
under their belt.
This group, whose divergent experiences and backgrounds
help to offset the latent provincialism of a' state university may
not, however, live with American students. Rather, they must
room together in residence halls or live in off campus apart-
ments. Even after coming to the University and meeting an
American who would like to room with them, the ELI students
are prohibited from doing so by official policy.
What is the rationale behind these restrictions?
First there is the financial problem. Although as one ELI
teacher said, "Finances are a mechanical problem," it seems to
cog up, at least superficially, the possibility of Americans rooming
with ELI students. As director of the residence hails Eugene Haun
explained, "The ELI rooms are under a different rental agree-
ment than the rest of the dorms."
However, Haun noted that the ELI rooms, which are physically
the same as the other rooms in the quad, cost more (about $520 per
semester) than the comparable rooms in which Americans live
($450 per semester) because of the extra service the ELI students
get at their dining tables and the difference in the formula
tabulating the rent-ELI room rates are based upon a daily basis
while the rooms of regular University students are based on a
Americans can not move into rooms with ELI students as
the situation stands now, according to Haun, because the separate
residence hall accounts can not be mingled.
According to a policy statement of the ELI administration
specifically issued this week to answer this question: "The prob-
lems involved arranging for ELI students to have American
roommates are numerous and such arrangements usually have
not proved of sufficient value to try them again."
ELI Policy Statement
For example, ELI administrators pointed out that very few
American students are interested in having two and sometimes
four different roommates during one year which would be neces-
sary due to the eight and sixteen week lengths of ELI sessions.
However, the administrators noted, "If the ELI had its own
housing in which 25 to 38 per cent of the students were Americans
selected because of their interest and adaptability, the situation
would be different and would probably prove valuable."
Furthermore the ELI administration claims that in some
cases the. boarding of two foreigners together is more beneficial
to the students than having them room with Americans.
As the system now operates in the residence halls, ELI officials
noted, the foreign students get some exposure to Americans who
live on their floor and can meet others at the specially assigned
dining tables for ELI students.
Despite these arguments from the ELI administration, one
ELI student remarked, "When Americans go to Europe they do not
wish to meet Americans, and when I come to America from Mexico
to learn English I want to meet Americans and not Mexicans."

Gemini Rocket Begins 3-Orbit Earth Flight

CAPE KENNEDY ()-Virgil Grissom and John Young flew the
world's first maneuverable manned space ship three times around the

the two-man Gemini program in the next few months.
