A grant from the Rockefeller Foun-
dation to the University will establish
a special eight-weeks course in Eng-
lish during the Summer Session for
Latin-American students who will en-
roll in American universities next fall,
Dr. Louis A. Hopkins as chairman of
the project announced recently.
The course will be offered to a j
limited number of students who will'
enroll in this and other Universities.
The course was set up as a national
plan to assist students in making;
the difficult language adjustment,
Dr. Hopkins pointed out.
The course will also constitute a
research project to determine the best
materials and techniques for teach-
ing English to foreign students. This}
feature of the plan will also prove of
scientific value in future work in this
field, Dr. Hopkins cited.

In a real sense it has been the
outgrowth of the Pan-American stu-

has developed during the past few
years. These excha'nges have pro-
vided scholarships and fellowships
for students from Latin American
For the past three years the Uni-
versity along with many others has

and Portugese speaking students.
