U Foreign
Student Total
Shows Decline
A total of 699 foreign students
are enrolled in the University for
the spring semester, according to
Robert B. Klinger, assistant coun-
selor to foreign students.
This represents a decrease of 58
from the 757 foreign students en-
rolled last fall but an increase of
93 from the 606 total for the
spring semester a year ago.
* *
FINAL TABULATIONS show
that 66 countries or regions are
represented this semester, as
against 70 last fall. Although cur-
rently there are no students from
the Bahamas, the Gold Coast, Ice-
land, Latvia, Malaya or Trinidad,
students from Estonia and St.
Lucia are enrolled here for the
first time this semester.
In the regional totals, the
Far East continues to set the
pace with 295 students, followed
by the British Commonwealth
with 136, Latin America with
110, Europe and Independent
Africa with 86, and the Near
East with 70.
Sixteen countries now have ten
orcmore students enrolled. They
include China (171), Canada
(111), India (84), the Philip-
pines (26), Turkey (24), Mexico
(17), Venezula (17), Colombia
(16), Iran (13), Iraq (13), Egypt
(12), Brazil (11), The Nether-
lands (11), France (10), and Ger-
many (10).
FOURTEEN countries show en-
rollment increases from last fall,
due to the arrival of displaced
persons and the reopening of edu-
cational exchange with Austria
and Germany.

Vets Receive
38,Bomber
Scholarships
Chosen from among 82 candi-
dates, 38 student veterans were
awarded Bomber Scholarships,
ampounting to $100 each for the
spring semester, Dean Erich A.
Walter announced yesterday.
Established in 1942 to provide
financial aid for students whose
education was interrupted by the
war, the Bomber Scholarship Fund
sought to accumulate enough
bonds to equal the purchase price
of an army bomber.
UNDER THE plan conceived by
Arthur Rude, '49L, part of the net
receiptsfrom campus social func-
tions were donated to the Bomber
fund. A total of $22,500 in war
bonds has been accumulated.

Pursue Men for Patience'

By LEON JAROFFj
A model war canoe worth two
skivy shirts, an old pair of dun-
garees, and a broken flashlight
was presented to the University
Museum of Anthropology last
week.
For that was the price that Riley
Geary, '50, who donated the mod-
el, had to pay a frizzly-haired na-I
tive five years ago off the northern
coast of New Guinea.
GEARY, WiO served aboard a
Navy amphibious transport during
the war, recalled that the native
was a "shrewd operator." "How-
ever," he added, "I completely out-
bargained him."
Museum officials were inclin-
ed to agree with Geary.
Dr. James B. Griffin, Director
of the Museum, revealed that the
canoe was the first one the Mu-
seum has received from Melane-
sia (island groups north of Aus-
tralia) and that it could now be

displayed with similar craft from
Polynesia and Indonesia.
ACCORDING to Dr. Richard
K. Beardsley, research associate,
the canoe demonstrates the fact
that present-day Melanesians are
not as highly-skilled in wood-
craft as their predecessors. "Their
work on British and Dutch plan-
tations during the past hundred
years has turned their interests
toward monetary reward and left
them little time to practice their
art," he explained.
Geary added a few highlights
to his story about the brisk
trade which flourished during
the war between U.S. sailors and
the natives of southwest Pacific
isles.
"Whenever we dropped anchor,'"
Geary related, "our ship would be
surrounded by natives in outrigger
canoes offering anything andE

everything for candy bars, uni-
forms, and gadgets."
"IF THEIR supply of goods be-
to dwindle," he continued,
they offered their wives and
daughters for as little as one mat-
tress cover each."
Geary added that practical con-I
siderations prevented these trans-
actions.

Communist victories in China
have dealt a staggering blow to
America's century -old education
program for Chinese students
both in this country and in China,
according to Dr. Esson M. Gale.
Dr. Gale, counselor to foreign
students at the University, said
that hundreds of Chinese students
in American colleges and univer-
sities have already seen their
bank accounts dwindle with small
expectation of receiving anything
further from home.
"SOME have no more than $150
in cash on hand, and they are
12,000 miles from home."
Many University students
from North China have re-
ceived no word from their fam-
ilies since October, he said. He
predicted that one of the first
measures of the Communists
will be to liquidate the middle-
class families from which many
students come.
Most students at American uni-
versities have been cared for dur-
ing the present semester, Dr. Gale
said. "But they have little or no

/.

prospect of getting funds to con-
tinue their studies or to pay for
their passage back to China."
"AS COMMUNIST controil
tightens in China, hostility to
American-trained Chinese, in-
cluding students, may be expected
to increase," he said.
The Chinese student body at
the University numbers.1, Dr.
Gale reported. Tuition loans
have been obtained for a few of
these, but the loans are tempo-
rary and must be repaid before
a degree is granted.
Dr. Gale and William Huang,
graduate political science student
and a graduate of St. John's Uni-
versity, Shanghai, will attend a
cohference Saturday and Sunday
at Syracuse University to consider
the educational crisis confronting
Chinese students.
THE CONFERENCE, which is
being sponsored by the United
Board of American' Universities in
China, will be attended by stu-
dents and faculty from colleges
throughout the country.
