THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Recent Survey Reveals
Statistics on'U' Veterans
Required Language Study Is
Advocated by Prof. Pargment
The avetage veteran here is 24%
years old, has served 32 months int
the armed services and was overseas
These facts were disclosed by a
statistical survey of the 2,093 veter-
ans at the University. The survey
was made for the Veterans' Service1
Bureau by the Statistical Service of
the Registrar's Office.
Seventy-one per cent of the 2,0561
male veterans served in the Army,
with 21 per cent in the Navy, and 3.5
per cent in the Marines. The remain-
ing 4.5 per cent were in the Coast
Guard, auxiliary services or with for-
eign' armies or navies.
Among the 37 women veterans, 51
per cent were in the Army, 27 per
cent in the Navy with therother 22 per
cent divided among the Marines,
Coast Guard and auxiliary services.
First lieutenants predominated
among the veterans who served in
the Army, with privates next most
numerous and privates first class
third in number. Among the former

mately 40 players, mainly city resi-

ances will be given. These include the
Civic Music Night, February 14, and
participation in the all-state Massed
Orchestra Festival at East Lansing,
Rehearsal date will be announced
Navy personnel, ordinary seamen top
the list by a wide margin, followed by
lieutenants, junior grade.
Among the Marine veterans, pri-
vates first class dominate the group.
The ex-Coast Guardsmen are the
same as the Navy men since most of
them served as ordinary seamen.
A surprising item disclosed by the
survey is that 305 veterans are paying
their own tuition.

A. Because their educators and
governments are of the opinion that
his study poessesses very high edu-
ational and practical values both for
he individual and the nation.
Q. What is the attitude of Amer-
ican leaders toward this all-impor-
A. Many prominent men and wom-
en, leaders in many walks of life,
have come to recognize the impor-
ance of giving high school and col-
ege students a real command of at
east one foreign language for prac-
ical, social and cultural reasons.
I have here many quotations from
statements made by some of them to
that effect. It would take much space
to publish them all in complete form.
Here are a few lines from some of
Wendell L. Willkie:
"The study of foreign lan-
guages has always been reward-
ing to the student, but today
more than ever before, we see
evidence of the very real and
practical benefits to be gained
by a knowledge ' of them."
Nicholas Murray Butler:
"The barrier of language has
long been one of the chief obsta-
cles to better international un-
derstanding and closer interna-
tional cooperation. That barrier
should be broken down as speed-
ily as may be possible."
G. F. Zook, President, American
Council on Education:
"It seems perfectly evident to
me that the passing of the isola-
tion of the United States will
quite naturally make it more and
more desirable for an increasing
proportion of our population to
become acquainted with one or
more foreign languages in the or-
dinary conduct of their voca-
Harry E. Fosdick:
"I should simply remark that
anyone who cannot see the im-
portance of foreign language
study in America now must be
stark blind to the realities of an
Q. Are there, or will there soon
be, many opportunities for Ameri-
can graduates to use their knowl-
edge of foreign languages in di-
rect intercourse with foreigners?
A. Right now many American of-
fices of all kinds are in correspon-
dence with their foreign counter-
parts, thousands of young American
men and women are working side by
side with foreigners in a score of
countries, numerous American planes
are landing our citizens in the re-
motest corners of the globe. But this
is nothing as compared with what is
coming. This follows from the in-
evitable growth of international rela-
tionships in the post-war world.
Through improved means of trans-
portation and communications, the
world distances are shrinking very
fast. Countries only recently far
distant are fast becoming our neigh-
bors. Our relations with them, diplo-
matic, military, economic, social, and
intellectual will soon surpass any-
thing that we have ever experienced
or even imagined. For these relations
to be beneficial, we shall need experts
in many fields who can read, write,
understand and speak a language
other than English. We shall do well
also to bear in mind that the time is
nearly over when a foreign language
can be used only in a foreign country.
Soon there will be in this country, on
business or on visit, as many foreign-
ers as there ever were ;iW any Euro-
pean country. We shall want not
only to transact business with them,
but also to exchange ideas freely with
Let me quote from two prominent
American business men:
Juan Trippe, President, Pan Ameri-
can Airway System:
"After the war the new era of
expanded world trade in the new
Age of Flight will offer limitless
opportunities to American youth
for careers in business, in Gov-
ernment, in international trans-
port, both air and sea. Our young
men and women would be well-
advised to begin as soon as possi-
ble to acquire complete knowl-
edge of the foreign languages
which will be the "open sesame"
for them in whatever sphere
they choose for their own world
career-the new era that lies just
beyond the peace."
D. S. Jeilehart, President, Giace Line
"We are likely after this war to
face' a very keen international
competition in world markets.
To meet this competition more
effectively, it is essential that the
knowledge of foreign languages
shall become no less general in
the United States than it is in
the countries with which we will
have to compete:"
Q. Do you believe that foreign
languages should be made a com-
pulsory subject of study in college?
A. There is no question whatever
in ny mind that at least two years of
language should be made compulsory,
not only in college, but also in every
secondary school that has a compe-
tent teacher to teach them.
There are at least two good rea-
sons for this position: 1. Because
of the lack of esteem in which for-
eign languages have been held by
many American educators, most
American students do not realize
how valuable they really are to.
themselves and to their country;
2. Because the philosophy and
practice that prevail in our high
schools have favored painless edu-
cation, many students, who have
not acquired the habit of concen-
trated and sustained effort, avoid
foreign languages, a successful
study of which calls for both.
