"Sometimes you have to buy prizes
you have no use for. The only thing I
wanted on the show was the car. I
didn't care about the rest of it," said
Caplan. "My main problem on the
show was not nervousness, but
greed."
CAPLAN FACED six opponents in
three shows. He defeated a two-time
champion during a match on his first
day.
The game involves' guessing letters
of a word puzzle, then spinning a Las
Vegas-type wheel to determine how
much money a contestant receives
for a correct guess. The wheel holds
slots marked "bankruptcy" and
"lose a turn" as well as various
dollar denominations.
"It's the principle of hangman,"
Caplan explained. "If you don't know
the puzzle, none of the money on the
wheel is yours. You can be very in-
telligent and not get anything."
"It was a matter of luck; about 60
per cent luck and 40 per cent skill. I
just got lucky," the dark-haired

I

Caplan declared.
Caplan wrote a letter six months
ago inquiring how to become a
contestant and was told to call when
he arrived in California. When
Caplan went to California for the
Rose Bowl and a Christmas visit with
his father, he was called in for a Jan.
3 interview.
"I LIKED the show. I thought I
could win a lot of money on it," said
Caplan.
During the interview, Caplan was
asked to solve some sample word
puzzles, like those used on the show.
He guessed all of them. Then he
played a practice game and won one
round.
"I was enthusiastic and that's what
they wanted," Caplan said.
CAPLAN WAS one of nine contest-
ants picked for the Jan. 9 taping, and
he hung on for three shows, the most
allowed for one contestant.
"I was nervous, but it turned out all
right. I tried to block out of my mind

what was going on around me and
concentrate on the game," he said.
Caplan expects to pay about $2,000
in taxes. "It's not that bad,' he said.
ABOUT 100 people filled an East
Quad TV room to watch Caplan's
first appearance. "It was too much,"
repeated Caplan. "Some friends are
taping it for me."
CAPLAN SAID he'll probably take
his vacations this summer. Hehas 18
months to use his trips. He plans to
take his father to Russia and Scan-
dinavia.
Caplan's favorite game show was
"Jeopardy," which was also an NBC
show, "but they took it off the air.
Caplan has a chance to compete on
the "Wheel of Fortune's" tourna-
ment of champions "probably some-
time this summer" because he was
"one of the all-time top winners." He
said NBC allows a person to appear
on two of their game shows in his life.
"I can't wait to go on the game
show circuit" said Caplan.

notes Center Director Jon Heise. And
because of the maturity that comes
with age, he says foreigners rarely
come to the Center with personal
problems.
"We have few people coming in
and crying because they lost their
girlfriends," says Heise. "Instead
most of the personal problems in-
volve serious matters like attempted
suicides and drug abuse."

DEALING WITH foreign students
isn't always serious business. Dances
and ski trips are often sponsored by
the center to ease foreigners into the
University's social scene.
"The ski trips area lot of fun.
Watching hordes of people who have
never seen snow before is a hilarious
experience," Nisbett explains. The
International Center is not limited to
services for foreign students. "When
most students think of us, they think
of foreign students," says Heise.
"They forget that we have many
other valuable programs that can
assist the native student, too."
Taking advantage of the Center's
offerings, over 5,000 American stu-
dents passed through the Internation-
al Center last year on their way to.
Europe.
"WE CAN HELP students save
money and cut down on travel
hassles," says John Boorth, an
advisor for the Center's Overseas

Opportunities Office. "We have the
resources and contacts to help make
it possible to have a good time.".
In addition to advice and travel
tips, the Officeprovides a library of-
travel folders and books which can
assist students in making flight and
travel arrangements.
"We're a little different than a
travel agent. We have no vested in-
terest in students' travel plans, other
than giving them the best advice
possible," notes advisor Marcia Shel-
ton.
"Our interest is in the students,"
says Shelton, so the center provides
sessionrs where you can learn how to
apply for a passport and pack your
suitcase.
The center also offers assistance
for students who, plan to work
abroad, provides volunteers who
teach foreign languages to elemen-
tary school children and aids the
University in finding non-U.S. citizen
employes.
Ungulates are animals with hooves
instead of claws. In this group, the
animals with fewer toes are more
evolved. A horse, which depends on
speed, siell and= sight for survival,
has single-hooved feet, a long nose
and wide peripheral vision.
