Co-op has international flavor
By JACKIE YOUNG
One way of meeting people from
exotic countries such as India, Japan,
Sudan, and Venezuela is to visit the
country. The next best thing is the
Friends International Co-op on Hill St.
The co-op, founded in 1955, is owned
by the Ann Arbor Society of Friends
(The Quakers) to provide homes for
Women foreign graduate students.
Ilse Arreaza, an Eastern Michigani
business administration major from
Venezuela, said the co-op is a place
"where you can meet foreign people but
you can learn about American life,
ALTHOUGH the co-op primarily of-
fers rooms to foreign female graduate
students, the house also offers both
males and females from this country a
chance to board at the 100-year-old
house in an effort to pair American
students with ones from another coun-
Following the co-op structure at the
University, members are required to
work four hours a week and take part in
monthly house meetings. The work can
be house maintenance or meal
preparatin, and helps lower the mon-
DINNERS AT Friends International
are quite a treat. Mondays are usually
Chinese specialties and Tuesday means
a German cook. The boarding mem-

"I found that I like cooking for a large
group of people," said Amy Nicholson,
who has lived in the co-op for three
terms while working on her masters
degree in English.
Room and board fees for women who
live in the co-op this fall term are
$536.00 for a double and $501.00 for a
triple. Outside memberships are
available for $88.00 per term. Six dinner
meals are served a week for boarders
and can be purchased for $2.60.
This term, there are 22 boarders and
11 roomers in the co-op. In addition,
Kathy Orchen and Don Gallgher act as
liasons between the Ann Arbor Friends
and the co-op members.
"A LOT OF strong friendships
develop here," said Orchen, who said
she looks for flexible people who are
willing to share their culture and
feelings with others in an open and
Resident Bruna Guerra, a water
resources major, said that one cannot
compare the, Friends Co-op with other
co-ops because "the people at Friends
are all interested in international
lifestyles and so you find a tremendous
variety of people with completely dif-
ferent backgrounds and fields of

Pedestrian killed by mine blast in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - A land mine
blew up a pedestrian yesterday, and
U.S. Marines took up positions near
Beirut's Green Line. A U.S. military
spokesman said, meanwhile, that a
special American bomb squad has been
in the country for about six weeks "to
train the Lebanese army."
Another American official, U.S. Em-
bassy spokesman John Reid, said an
American military survey team went to
the Christian port of Jounieh, 12 miles
north of Beirut, for talks with the
Lebanese armed forces.
Reid said he had no information
regarding the topics discussed, but the
Christian Voice of Lebanon radio said
the American team was studying the
Lebanese army's needs for advanced
THE MINE went off on Beshara el-
Ihoury Boulevard in midtown Beirut,
the state radio said. The victim was not
immediately identified. Police also
deactivated a car bomb in west Beirut.
U.S. Marine units deployed east of the
airport, meanwhile, to join Italian in-
fantrymen at a checkpoint just south of
the Galerie Semaan crossing point on
the Green Line that divides the city into
Moslem west and Christian east, U.S.
Navy Cmdr. Peter Litrenta said.
On Thursday, a U.S. Marine was
killed and three others were wounded
by a buried artillery shell at Beirut air-
port, where the bulk of the 1,200
Marines in Beirut are camped.
ARMY LT. Col. Lee Delorme, a Pen-
tagon spokesman in Beirut, said the
Marines were hit by part of a 155min
cluster shell made in America and of a
type sold to Israel, but he couldn't say if
the shell had been fired from an Israeli
