Study Period
In Germany
Now Offered
A year or two of study in Ger-
many coupled with a hands across
the sea gesture awaits the right
University student, Ivan E. Parker,
assistant to the dean of students,
has revealed.
Under a reciprocal agrement.
an American student will receive
tuition and living expenses for
a period of study in Germany if
he can provide the same main-
tainence for 22-year-old Fritz
Streuber at the University.
Streuber, whose family runs a
tin plate factory in Herford,
Westphalia, is currently enrolled
at the University of Cologne but
wants to come to America to
study in the University's school
of business administration for
one or two years, according to a
letter received by Parker from
an international lawyer in Zu-
rich.
Currency exchange problems
make it impossible for y o un g
Streuber to come to the U.S., for
he cannot secure American ex-
change.
The cultural and educational
section of the U.S. Military Gov-
ernment in Germany requires
that a student must be regis-
tered in a recognized American
school and his travelling ex-
penses, maintenance and tuition
fees guaranteed by a respon-
sible American..
According to the letter, Streu-
ber's mother would be willing to
pay the expenses of an American
student in Germany if his family
could make similar provisions for
her son in America.
Parker asked that persons in--
terested in further information
concerning the project contact
him in Rm. 1059 of the Admini-
stration Building.

Lures Skiers
To At.boietu
By PAUL BRENTLINGER
Fresh snow which fell early in
the day, coupled with sunshine
and blue skies, lured innumerable
ski and camera toting students to
the arboretum yesterday.
Herringboned hillsides and gay-
ly colored ski costumes trans-
formed the popular campus play-
ground to a paradise for winter
sports lovers. But the skiers' Eden
lacked at least one element of per-
fection.
* ' *
"WHAT THIS PLACE needs is
a ski tow," Philip M. Smith, '51
BAd., moaned, as he puffed under
the load of the skis he was hoist-
ing up a hill.
His sentiments were echoed
by several of the sports lovers
who spent most of their time
doing nothing but going up aft-
er a quick glide down one of the
arb's many ski runs.
On one of the arb's easier hill-
sides, completely bare of trees and
other obstructions, a group of ex-
perienced skiers expertly zig-
zagged their way to the bottom,
with all the skill of newsreel ath-
letes.
AT THE SAME TIME, a group
of three would-be skiers, obviously
beginners of the lowest order,
could be seen near the top of one
of the steepest hills in sight. They
were attempting to ski down a
narrow strip of snow which lay
between impressive rows of thorn
trees.
In the midst of this tortuous
path came an abrupt jump-
off. At last count, the three
neophytes were successful in
getting down the hill without a
spill once in about five times.
Camera fans had a great time
exposing colored film to record the
lights and shadows which seemedJ
all around.

mum rise of 140 degrees and an
average of 100 degrees when the.
tooth enamel is drilled.
But there is only a rise of 38
degrees when drilling the dentin
underlying the surface enamel, he
reported.

SMALLER temperature rises oc-.
cur when drilling is done at low
speeds, with small cutting tool
sizes and with light pressure ap-
plication, according to preliminary
studies made with steel, diamond
point and carborundum cutting
tools, Dr. Peyton said.
Experiments with the "air dent,"
the new air abrasive method of
drilling, now under development,
show no significant temperature
rise during drilling, Dr. Peyton
reported.
FUTURE EXPERIMENTS are
planned to study the effect of tem-
perature changes on mouth tis-
sues, he added.
The results described by Dr.
Peyton were obtained from meas-
urements made on extracted adult
molar and bicuspid teeth.

Petition To Widen
E. University Ave.
A petition to have E. Univer-
sity Ave. widened eastward in
front of the East Quad will be con-
sidere'd next week by the City
Council's public works committee.
The petition was signed by 40
parents of University Elementary
School and University High School
children. Specifically, it asks that
E. University Ave. between S. Uni-
versity Ave. and Hill be widened
15 feet by moving the curb east.,
The street is too narrow now
and constitutes a menace to school
children crossing it, according to
the petition.

WEEKLY TEA-Every Thursday afternoon, the International Center plays host at tea to the for-
eign students on campus and their American friends in an endeavor to further promote internation-
al understanding. The teas are highlighted by bridge and canasta games as well as informal
dancing. Often 79 countries are represented at these weekly functions which are designed to give
foreign students the opportunity to entertain their American acquaintances in a wholly informal
atmosphere.

The University, which has' one of the* largest enrollments of
foreign students i4 the United States can well boast of its Interna-
tional Center, long the focal point fcr establishing informal contacts
between students of all nations.
Formally inaugurated in 1938, the Center has its own Board of
Governors, composed of various University officials and faculty mem-
bers and is directed by Dr. Esson M. Gale.
ITS MAIN TASK is to provide the foreign students on campus
with social and educational activities. Secondly it assists the students
in finding living accommodations, often in quarters also housing
American students. In this manner, a type of international living is
achieved.
Perhaps, the most important single service of the Center,
other than establishing social contacts, is the English Language
Service, which has been designed to aid the foreign student in
meeting the various emergencies he may face in social situations
as well as in his academic life.
These classes are limited to groups of ten or twelve students and
meet three times each week. In addition, individual conferences are
arranged in order to allow each student to discuss privateiy his par-
ticular problems.
* * * *
BESIDES THE regular classes, the Language Service which is
unaer tne supervision of Miss Sarah E. Grollman assists advancea
and professional students who are frequently called upon to present
papers or give talks.
The activities of the service include intensive drill in pronun-
ciation, study of the English idiom and structural patterns, train-
ing in composition, study of American life, letters and thought,
and practical conversation groups.
The Center offers a wide range of social activities, the most
popular being the weekly teas held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. each Thursday
in the Center lounge.
American students have found the Sunday Night Suppers par-
ticularly interesting. Each foreign student club successively prepares
a dish from its national menu for the supper and American students
are still reveling over the "chelo khoresht" served by the Persian
Club and the "su ch'ao niu roh" prepared by the Chinese students.
The social season is climaxed with the annual International Ball to
be held this year April 28 at the Union.
