in any school in the United States,
with the possible exception of New
York University."
This was revealed yesterday in an
interview with Dr. Frederick F. Fales,
Field Secretary of the Institute of
International Education. The In-
stitute of International Education is
a function of the American State De-
"Last year," Dr. Fales pointed
out, "Michigan was second only to
New Ycrk University.
"The degree to which these stu-
dents have been adjusted to campus
life both socially and academically
seems to be quite far ahead of many
other American colleges and univer-
sities I have visited," he said.
Achievement of this desireable-
able situation I)r. Fales accredits
to the fine services of the Interna-
tional Center and to the energetic
work of its director, Dr. Esson M.
"During the war, the State De-
partment had put a stop to the in-
terchanging of American and for-
eign students and professors," Dr.
Fales said, "but now that the war has
ended, this practice is once more en-
"We expect a definite increase in
the number of foreign students
wishing to enroll in American in-
stitutions of higher learning."
Dr. Fales believes that because of
present world conditions, America
will continue to hold its position of
leadership in attracting foreign stu-
dents to its universities for *many
years to come.
"It is the duty of the Institute of
International Education," he de-
clared, to serve as clearing house for
foreign students desiring to enter

eign schools."
In regard to the proposed curricu-
lum changes Dr. Fales stated that
any changes should be in the direc-
tion of encouraging fields of concen-
tration rather thain in continuing the
present system of free electives. He
is led to this conclusion rlough the
experiences of his many years with
New York University as IrofteSSOr of
romance philology.
Dr. Fales is presently on a tour
of American universities and col-
leges interviewing foreign students
to learn of their problens, cheek
on their 'progress, and to assist
them on technical matters, such as
passports, draft status, etc.
"Since it is also cne of the primary
interests of the Institute to encour-
age American students to travel to
foreign schools, I would appreciate
any one so interested to contact me
for full information as' to our pro-
gram," Dr. Fales remarked.
Any inquiries should be addressed

SAIGON-The political and mili-
tary picture in Indo China looks like
a Mexican stand off on a Balkan
deadlock with subtle Oriental com-
plications and inter-Allied divergence
of aim and purpose.
It shows the Chinese disarming
surrendered Japanese north of the
16th parallel and leaving unmo-
lested the anti-French Viet Minh
government seated at Hanoi. The
British, meanwhile, are preparing
to withdraw after disarming the
Japanese south of the demarca-
tion line, halving the country,

while the French forces spread
their reoccupation area outside
Saigon against hostile harassment
of the Annamites.
The French estimate it will take
several months to recover their col-
onies and protectorates which formed
the prewar Indo-China union.
It is only a question of time and
arrival of reinforcements before the
French complete the subjugation of
the Annamites in southern Indo-
China, where they gained their ini-
tial reoccupation foothold in an alli-
ance with the British. The Indian
20th division entered the picture

with the sole avowed intention of dis-
arming the Japanese, but they inci-
dentally provided the French with
their bridgehead to reconquest.
The Chinese-ruled north pro--
vides an entirely different picture.
The French are dealing with the
Chinese in the hope of obtaining
permission to rearm 4,500 French
troops who have been idling in the
Hanoi citadel since they were dis-
armed by the Japanese last March
3, and to return an equal number,
with arms, from China, whence
they fled in the wake of the Jap-
anese coup.
