courses, the trip is open to students

Lisle Gives
New Insight
To Tourists
Working in the fields, servicing
cars in a gas station, attending
church socials, all this and more
can be part of a student's trip to
The best answer to the would-
be traveler who wants to "meet
the people" lies in the Lisle Fel-
lowship. Established by Univer-
sity Director of Lane Hall DeWitt
Baldwin, these fellowships provide
a real opportunity to find out
what makes a foreign country
EVERY summer, Lisle organizes
small groups of forty men and
women, mostly upperclassmen and
graduate students, which are call-
ed units. This summer, Lisle will
have units in California, Colo-
rado and Asia.
Most appealing to Europe-
minded students, however, is a
five-week program at South
Sjaelland, Denmark. The pro-
gram begins July 4 and ends
August 10, excluding travel time.
Working from the simple idea
that one can understand a person
best by working and living with
him on an intercultural, interra-
cial and interreligious basis, mem-
bers are purposely selected from
widely diverse backgrounds.
AFTER arriving in Denmark,
this variegated group lives in pri-
vate homes. For three days a
week, they are with the people-
perhaps doing police social work
or aiding in education of the
mentally handicapped.
Then the unit forms again to
report on their experiences, swap
ideas and help each other with
problems. Next, they divide in-
to small groups again to play a
new role in the community.
But life is not all work and no
play for the Lisle travelers. They
take time out for sightseeing,
sports and parties.
Lisle does not pay the full shot
on expenses for the travelers.
When making out applications,
students indicate their ability to
contribute to the common fund.
However, the Fellowship empha-
sizes no one should fail to apply
for financial reasons.
Applications for the Denmark
Fellowships will be accepted until
the middle of June. Information
about this or other Lisle units may
be obtained from DeWitt Baldwin
at Lane Hall.

campments, which bring together
students from varied backgrounds
and countries.

torical background. The student

outlook which will help him decide
which part of the continent he
would like to revisit.
