'U' course offers
By RONA SMITH
For the student who wants to learn
something about the world outside the
United States, the University has more
to offer than just classes in foreign
language. A special campus program
offers ready-made foreign friends.
The Conversation Partner Program,
sponsored by the English Language In-
stitute, offers Americans the oppor-
tunity to meet regularly and talk with
foreign students to supplement the
students' study of the English
ALTHOUGH ELI is devoted to
teaching English to foreigners, the con-
versation program is beneficial to their
American partners as well, say ELI of-
"It's a chance to visit the world
without leaving campus," said Jo
Glass, ELI's coordinator of student ac-
The program requires that American
students meet with their ELI partners
for at least one hour each week to give
the foreign students a chance to prac-
tice their English. An "exchange" can
also be arranged in which an additional
hour would be devoted to speaking in
the foreign student's native tongue, af-
fording the American student an oppor-
tunity to brush up on his or her foreign
LEARNING another language is not
the only reason that American students
join the program. Pam Gillespie, a
graduate student in linguistics and a par
ticipant in the program wants to teach
English as a foreign language.
"Professionally, it was good for me to
get to know people from other countries
learning English as a second
language," she said.
Mike McCullough, an LSA senior
majoring in English, has had several
conversation partners from countries
such as Qatar, Iran, Korea; and
Thailand. "I always wanted to go
abroad," he said. "Speaking with
foreign students helped me to get in
touch with what that experience would
be like for me."
MCCULLOUGH added that when he
did go abroad, the effects of culture
shock were dampened as a result of his
experiences with foreign conversation
Foreign students say they also
greatly benefit from the program .Ac-
cording to Glass, most ELI students are
exposed to few Americans on the casual
level because many of them have
foreign roommates and spend a great
deal of time in the classroom.
"The best thing for my partner was
for him to get into social situations
where people spoke. English," said
ELI, SAID Glass, attempts to match
partners according to preferences for a
language, closeness - in age, and
similarity of academic, professional, or

der of the shuttle. "Knowing somebody
in it is really neat."
Lousma, a University alumnus, drew
quite a crowd from the Ann Arbor area
to the lift-off. "We want to be sure he
knows the maize and blue are behind
him," said Ford engineer John LaFond,
who made the trip south with a group of
about 15 from the area. "We wanted to
hime him a U-M send-off."
Enjoying the pre-launch festivities,
University alumnus Ron Gruizinga
remembered Lousma in his youth,
when the astronaut visited his farm and
flew model airplanes - with little suc-
cess. "I hope Jack can fly the shuttle
better than model airplanes," he quip-
TOURISTS, space freaks, and press
corps gathered before the launch in
parking lots, at roadsides, and in vir-
tually every other open space in this
area, creating an atmosphere which
seemed almost capable itself of
blasting the shuttle off.
Lousma and Col. C. Gordon Fuller-
ton, the shuttle's pilot, beamed and
waved on their way to the launch site.
Once on board the shuttle, Lousma's
heartbeat registered at 132 beats per
minute - double the normal rate -
while Fullerton settled in at only 92.
With the craft safely in orbit, the
hundred of thousands of people who ,had
visited the space port for a glimpse of
what will soon be a routine event began
the long trek homeward.
First, however, they had to fight
through one of the world's largest traf-
fic jams - heavily laden with T-shirts,
hats, buttons, and posters to com-
memorate the day.
