Students taste

oreign cultures

By CLAUDIA CENTOMINI
Diane Grossman's mouth watered for
what she knew would be an exotic treat
from Venezuela. She had spent hours
with exchange student Javier Revilla
searching for the special ingredients.
demanded by the recipe written in
Spanish by Revilla's mother.
When they finally sat down to eat,
Grossman discovered the exotic-
sounding dish tasted like good old All-
American beef soup.
Grossman and Revilla are two.
students who have had a chance to
learn about the similarities and dif-
ferences between their cultures in
Cultural Exchange, a class offered
through Project Outreach. In the class,
10 LSA students are matched with 10
foreign students who are enrolled in in-
tensive English courses at the Univer-
sity's English Language Institute.
ALTHOUGH Cultural Exchange was
otginally designed to help foreign
students adjust to the University and
American culture, the program has
also proved an eye-opener for Univer-
sity students never before exposed to
foreign lifestyles.
Faculty adviser Bob Heffner said the
program helps "restructure the at-
titudes of Americans."
- "This country has got to wake up.
We're not the only ones here," said
Grossman, who is also the student

Culture Exchange class
fosters friendships

organizer for the class. She said
Cultural Exchange is a way in which
American students can overcome many
stereotypes and misconceptions of
foreign students.
ONE COMMON misconception,
Grossman said, is "foreign students
don't speak English, therefore they (the
foreign students) are dumb."
The English Language students in the
program are at various levels of
English proficiency. Some of the
students have been in the U.S. or at the
institute for several months while
others have just arrived in the U.S. and
have never studied English before.
Mary Kay Kosnik said she had to
speak very proper English when she
first met Yuko Nomoto, a student from
Japan, because Nomoto didn't under-
stand American slang terms.
Through a weekly class session and
various social activities, the American
and foreign students learned to cope
with the language barrier.
ONE NIGHT the class gathered for
dinner. Although they had agreed to

converse. in English, various jokes
about each other's cultures went
around the table. A Japanese student
and a Spanish student had a good laugh
when they discovered certain words in
Japanese sound like obscenities in
Spanish. .x
Kosnik and some other American
students in the class said that by lear-
ning about other cultures they were
able to understand their own cultures
better.
"The more 'American' things are
hard to explain," Kosnik said. "I tried
to explain sororities . . . It's hard for
them to relate to."
LSA SOPHOMORE Jackie Boezi was
an exchange student in Barcelona,
Spain in 1979, and she said she enrolled
in the Cultural Exchange class because
she could relate to the experiences of a
student in a foreign country.
Boezi and her partner, a woman from
Venezuela, go shopping and out to lunch
together often. "A major goal is to build
a lasting relationship with this person,"
Boezi explained.,

Two months ago, Hugo Jaimes Rivos
arrived from Mexico and is living in
Ypsilanti with an American friend he
met in Mexico. He said he finds the
program and classes "very in-
teresting."
WHEN HE IS in Ann Arbor, Rivos
said he meets his American partner
and they go to the park and out to eat.
Adviser Heffner considers the
program an educational experience
that is more effective than
"traditional" ways of learning.
Cultural Exchange is "real world kinds
of actions and psychological learning
based on those real world kinds of ex-
periences," he said.
LSA student Jim McCulloch enrolled
in the Outreach class because it seemed
like it would be an "enjoyable ex-
perience."
"It doesn't seem like it's related to
school," said McCulloch.
The program is a way of "helping
someone adjust," he added, "It's lear-
ning by doing."
Grossman sees Cultural Exchange as
a small way to help improve relations
between Americans and people in other
countries. She emphasized the impor-
tance of knowing another language.
The "U.S. is one of the few countries
that speaks one language," said
Grossman, adding, "Without foreign
language, how can you talk to the rest
of the world?"

Iran exploring release plans-U.S.

WASHINGTON (AP) -Iranian
authorities are considering a plan to
release most-but not all-of the 52
Arerican hostages held there since last
Nov. 4, U.S. officials acknowledged last
night.
But the officials said a number of op-
tions presumably are under discussion
in Tehran and no single plan has been

formally presented to the United
States. The officials asked not to be
named.
"I'm 'sure they've considered every
variation," one official said.
"BUT WE HAVE nothing directly in
front of us. We are not considering any
particular plan."
A proposal to release many of the

hostages, but not all of them, "would
give us a real problem," he said. The
Carter administration has insisted sin-
ce the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was
overrun by militants that all Americans
taken captive must be released.
Throughout the day, the Carter ad-
ministration worked to dampen
speculation on an imminent release.

NBC News quoted a Moslem source
at the United Nations as saying that the
release would begin tomorrow, barring
unforeseen developments.
ONE HIGH LEVEL U.S. official
checked for late developments and told
the Associated Press that Iranian
authorities had given no indication to
the United States that a hostage release
was imminent.
President Carter, asked about the
NBC report after landing in Grand
Rapids where he was campaigning,
said: "I wouldn't count on it."
Earlier in the day, the president said
that "bitterness and disappointment"
could result if people think the hostages
in Iran are coming home soon. He said:.
"You know one thing that concerns
me a lot lately has been a buildup in the
American press, the television, radio,
and newspapers, of expectations that
the hostages are going to come home
early that I don't think are justified.
"I DON'T HAVE any way to know
when the hostages might come home
and I think for us to expect that they're
going to come home this weekend or
next week or the following week is
going to lead to very bitter disappoin-
tments in our country if they don't come
when we think they might," he said.

HE SAID HE thinks that educating
people about the dangers of passing up
has helped. Closer, more interesting
football games may bue also aided in
stopping the problem, Calhoun said.
During lopsided Wolverine victories, he
explained, rowdy spectators would pass
people by the stadium as an expression
of their joy at an overwhelming win.
Now the fans still become boisterous,
but they have to watch the game atten-
tively to see who wins.
Perry stressed that the athletic
department can't control 100,000 spec-
tators alone. "Our students are pretty
smart and they realize what a raunchy
thing passing up is," Perry explained.
He added that it is "a credit to the
students that they've realized the
seriousness of it."
SPUN plans to send information to
universities, including the Big Ten, to
help battle the problems of passing up.
Perry said he hopes "Michigan will
provide leadership by ending passing
up here,"
During a football game last fall
Calhoun and some other SPUN mem-
bers interviewed some women im-
mediately after they had been passed
up. They said that a few of the women
said they didn't mind being passed up,
but most were very upset by the in-
cident.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
NRC lists shipping routes
for radioactive nuclear fuel
WASHINGTON-The Nuclear Regulatory Commission yesterday
disclosed for the first time the rail and road routes it has approved for highly
radioactive shipments of spent atomic reactor fuel through 33 states.
Maps in the NRC "draft public information circular" sent to state
governors shwo shipments will pass through or near such large cities as
Oakland, Calif.; Hartford,. Conn.; Trenton, N.J.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Nor-
folk, Va.
Until June 1979, th NRC required no special protection in shipping on the
theory that plutonium-laced spent fuel is so inherently dangerous no one
would interfere with it.
Magazine says Billy Carter
held meeting with Arafat
WASHINGTON-New Republic magazine said yesterday that Billy
Carter held a secret meeting with Yassar Arafat, head of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
The magazine also claimed Carter received $50,000 from Libya that he
has not made public.
The New Republic cited one of Khadafy's Italian agents, Michele Papa,'
as its main source, and quoted him as saying Carter demanded and received
another $50,000 when he made his first trip to Libya in 1978.
Carter denied both the allegations in a conversation with the New York
Times. He said he has met with Palestinian leader George Habash, but
never with Arafat himself.
Ferency attacks Proposal E
LANSING-Activist attorney Zolton Ferency made a bid late yester-
day to block Proposal E, a ballot issue to raise taxes for new prison construc-
tion.
In a letter to the Board of State Canvassers, Ferency-who ironically
has sued the state to ease prison crowding-asked for a ruling declaring
Proposal E void on constitutional grounds.
Ferency said the title of Proposal E calls it an appropriation. If the
measure is an appropriation it cannot be on the ballot, he said, adding if it is
not an appropriation, then it violates constitution provisions regarding titles.
Earlier this year, Ferency tried vainly to get the canvassers or the cour-
ts to rule Proposal D, the Tisch amendment, off the ballot.
Earthquake hits Mexico City
MEXICO CITY-A strong earthquake hit ' Mexico City yesterday;
shattering several buildings and sending thousands of people into the
streets. At least five persons were killed.
The Tacubaya Earthquake Center said the quake, the second such
tremor to shake Mexico this year, measured 6.5 on the Richter scale and was
centered 150 miles southeast of the capital city.
A Red Cross official in Mexico City said two people died of heart attacks,
apparently related to the quake, and about 40 people were treated for in-
juries and hysteria in the capital.
The quake was felt as far away as Guatemala City, the capital of
Guatemala, and the Mexican gulf port city of Veracruz.
School explosion kills 51
ORTUELLA, Spain-The mining town of Ortuella was the scene of
a mass funeral yesterday for 48 children and three adults who died when a
boiler-room explosion caused a grammar school to crumble to the ground.
The explosion of a heating boiler before noon Thursday blew out the en-
tire ground floor of one wing of the "Marcelino Ugalde" school. The force of
the blast blew out the windows of a high-rise apartment building across the
street.
The streets of the twon of 9,500 were deserted during the funeral, and
many shops were closed.
Iraq claims Iranian port city;*
Iran says fighting continues
BASRA, Iraq-Iraq claimed yesterday to have finally captured the
Iranian port city of Khurramshahr, raising its flag over the city center
following a week of fighting in the streets that left hundreds of casualties.
But Iran denied the fall of Khurramshahr and said "hand-to-hand and

house-to-house" fighting was still continuing in the city, a major obective of
Iraqi strategy since the war began 33 days ago.
The Iranian Pars news agency said Iraqi artillery also shelled Ahwaz, 70
miles northeast of Abadan and the capital of Iran's oil-rich Khzestan provin-
ce. It said the city's defenders fired back and "silenced" the Iraqi guns.

The Reformation of the 16th Century, developed and
conducted by Martin Luther and the extraordinary men of
his time, WAS A WONDERFUL EVENT, which, at every
step of its progress, bears upon it the imprint of The
Divine Hand. Says Carlyle of Luther. "His career marks
the beginning of the present epoch, for it is safe to say
that every man in western Europe and America is leading
life today from what he would have led, and is another
person altogether from what he would have been, had
Martin Luther not lived." Had I lived in his day and gener-
ation, I certainly hope I would have been one of his sup-
porters with time, money and prayers.
The great religious movement of the 17th Century,
which we call the Puritan Reformation will ever stand as
one of the great landmarks of history, far reaching in its
influence, and permanent as the truth and the Church of

now present some of John Wesley's testimony: When
Wesley considered the prodigious increase of The
Methodist Society/"from two or three poor people to
hundreds, to thousands, to myriads, he affirmed such an
event, considered in all its circumstances, had not been
seen upon the earth since the time St. John went to
Abraham's bosom. But he perceived where the principle
of decay was to be found. The real essence of Methodism
is holiness of heart and life. He said riches were the.great
enemy of, and danger to these essentials: "Wherever
riches have increased, the essence of religion has
decreased in the same proportion."
However, true religion must necessarily produce
industry, frugality, and these cannot but produce riches.
But as riches increase so will pride, anger, and love of the
world in all its branches, the desire of the flesh, the desire
nE the usann nrida nf life." Is there no way to prevent
