Early Language Training
Dr. Gale was born in Bad Axe
and received his early education in
Bay City. He began his interna-
tional contacts and language
ltraining at the early age of seven
when, although of Scotch-Irish
origin, he was "pitched into a
German parochial school to learn
German by the natural method of
exposure. Before he attended any
school whatever, his father, a
facile linguist himself, had him
reading the Bible in both Latin

Students in a business admin-
istration class in "records organi-
zation" will have access to the fa-
cilities of nine Detroit business
concerns during May.
Two students will be assigned to
each cooperating business, and will
make a weekly visit to that office.
There they will make a survey of
the concern's "paper work sys-
tem," observing the preparation
and use of business records.
All the cooperating concerns are
meihbers of the National Office
Management Association, through
which the arrangement was made.

"Chinese Water Colors," a group
of songs by Carpenter, will be
featured in a song recital to be
presented by Arlene Sollenberger,
music school student, at 8:30 p.m.
tomorrow at Rackham Assembly
sian and Esperanto, he majored in
Medieval European History at the
University for his M.A. degree,
with a view to research and teach-
ing in that field.
Approrpiately enough, with this
preparation, and upon passing the
U. S. Foreign Service examina-
tions, Dr. Gale found himself at
Peking, China, in a completely
medieval atmosphere. There, he
recounts, he found a "gorgeous
Oriental despotism, resembling in
close respects the Byzantine em-
pire in its decline, drawing to a
close within the forbidden city of
Peking. Republican China, with
its American bent, was still in the
offing and intercourse between
Chinese and foreigners was still
at a minimum"
In this exotic atmosphere, the
young man from Michigan was
able to make an intensive sudy of
the Chinese language for practi-
cal use in a long career in the serv-
ice of both the American and Chi-
nese governments. He has subse-
quently written extensively on his
experiences and observations in
the Far East.
For"refresher"purposes, his life
in China has varied with occasional
academic interludes in his home-
land where he successively taught
Far Eastern languages and culture
at his Alma Mater, the University
of California and Northwestern
At the outbreak of World War
II, Dr. Gale was appointed by the
State Department to a special mis-
sion in the Far East, maintaining
headquarters at China's wartime
capital, Chungking. On his re-
turn to Ann Arbor, he served a
year as a professor of political
science, and in 1943 assumed his
present duties at the International
Center. At this post, Dr. Gale
says, he has observed "the growth
and fruition of the foreign student
exchange program of the Univer-
sity of Michigan to its present
state of world-wide renown."
Dr. Gale firmly believes that
"international education as prac-
ticed by hundreds of institutions
of higher learning in this country
today will prove in the long run
the most potent factor in bringing
about world understanding and
"It is definitely intellectual and
ideological differences, that are
causing the world's present ma-
laise," he said.
"With the release of millions of
young American men and women
from war service, international
intellectual exchange is rapidly re-
suming its two-way pattern. The
carrying out of the Fulbright Act
will provide wide opportunities for
young Americans to study in the
foreign lands of their choosing.
"In addition, government agen-
cies are making this definitely the
American era by dispatching
trained young Americans into vari-
ous kinds of foreign service, both
diplomatic and technological," he

gloves are actually double-woven cottons that become softer, richer, more lustrous
with each washing. As if this wasn't enough they're distinguished even more
so for the incomparable details usually found only in gloves of the finest leather.
