Barbour Scholar Gives Reasons

For Scarcity Of Japanese Here Predict Sell-Out

By BARBARA PATERSON as they are here. That is partly be-

_ . i s

ginami-ku, Tokyo, Japan, is one of
the comparatively few Japanese stu-
dents on this campus. The principal
reason that there are not so many,
according to Miss Fukuda, is because
of the great difference in the Jap-
anese and American school systems.
"The Chinese system is patterned
after the American," she said, "so the
Chinese students can come here and
enroll in the Graduate School. But
the Japanese system is so different
that we almost have to start over'
again. I went to the Women's Chris-
tian College in Tokyo for four years,'
and yet when I came here last year1
I had to register as a second-se-
mester freshman. It is quite dis-
Attend American Schools
Also she added that the wealthy
Japanese people send their daughters
to American finishing schools ratherI
than to state colleges or universities.
The very poor cannot send their sons
and daughters at all; so that leaves
the more or less intellectual group of
he middle class to be represented
Miss Fukuda was born in Tokyo
otnd lived there until she came to the
United States in August, 1934. She1
has spoken English "on and off for
:bout ten years," beginning her studyz
at a Mission School conducted by
American teachers. During the time
she was enrolled in the Women's
Christian College, Miss Fukuda ma-
jored in English and belonged to an
1n glish-speaking grouptheQueen's
Garden Club-which met every week
and published a paper called "Thet
Libraries Undeveloped
After arriving in the United States,
Miss Fukuda lived for a year in
Washington, D.vC., before coming
here to school. She entered the Uni-
versity in September, 1935, and is now
Iworking for an A.B. degree in history.
Upon completing that she hopes to
remain for another year and take,
some work in the Library School.
"The library field is not a crowded
:ne in Japan," she said, "and that
is where I shall be if my plans ma-
terialize. The libraries there are not
so numerous nor so well developed

n Mhis type of work.
Books Inexpensive
Another reason which Miss Fukuda
mentioned was that Japanese books
are inexpensive and most of the peo-
ple prefer to buy them rather than
use the libraries. But American pub-
lications are by no means cheap, and
with more people reading them all
the time, there now seems to by
greater need for a means of obtaining
When asked whether she herself
did much reading, Miss Kukuda said
that she occasionally reads a Japan-
ese or American novel when she finds
the time. However, she has not been;
able to do so much of this lately.
"You see," she explained, "I do not
have any more spare time."
