for Foreigners.
Twenty-two students represent-
ing 12 diffieet countries. visite
several cities of the state duringl
spring, vacation on the ninth an-.
nual spring tour of Michigan,
sponsored by the Cosmopolitan
club, it was announced yesterday
by Prof. Calton F. Wells of the
rhetoric department and faculty
advisor to. foreign students.
The tour was pomoted with the
educational view of giving the for-,
eign students a more complete ;co-
ception and understanding of
American life, manners, and indus-
Visit Industrial Plants.
The five cities, Hatie Creek;,,
Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansingt
and Jackson in order named, wre
visited by the, group under, tle,
-- leadership of Professor Wells, in a
chartered bus. During their stay in
Battle Creek, trips were made to
the Postum Cereal factory and to

and municipal works, as vWll as

were visited in Kalamazoo, Grand

the students participated in a
radio broadcast while in Grand],
Rapids. An inspection tour of thel
Michigan. State prison at Jackson'
was the last event on the program
before returning to Ann Arbor.
Wells Discusses, Trip.
of the trip Professor Wells said,
"As an educational project, I can-
not conceive of the foreign students
getting more in the way of knowl
edge concerning American life and
* institutions within the given time
than is crowded into this four and'
one-half day tour. It is a many-
sided experience. American indus-
tries and American business men
are seen at close range. Schools are
visited. But the most important
part of the acquaintancship with j
American life is assuredly the home ,
entertainment provided. In this
atmosphere of informal, friendlyt
hosp4,itt, convrsatipn is. stinu-
latedrd'real -accquailitanceshipI
made possible. It is wholesome and
illuminating for the boys to meet
capa1, wl-balanced, broadly edai
ca ed AMerians; and in turn, it i
good for the, hosts to know these
student-ambassadors who 'have
come tq} American, to. Michigan, to
"Another lasting value of the
trip comes as a natural conse-
quen ce. of the intimate association
fthe group of students during theI
vaca tiora of travel. And when thet
boys sing Michigan songs (many,
,f ~learn them on the trip for'. the first,
tinme}, they often, for the first time,
- sense what -their Alma Mater may
1xetan to, t em in awarm and per-
sonal way. It is their first expe -
rience, usually, with the happy,
carefree comaderie of college life,"
Professor Wells add.ed

grade of "A" in gelogy courses
