Heidelberg Students Study Life at U'
K. * * * *

By DOROTHY MYERS
Discovering what American life
is like in schools, factories and
midwestern cities is proving to be a
full time job for six German stu-
dents from Heidelberg University,
studying on campus under State
Department scholarships.
Here to study student life on
American campuses, the six are
busy visiting Student Legislature
meetings, talking with faculty and
administrative personnel, getting
acquainted with American students
and taking courses for credit.
* * *
ALTHOUGH THE six will be
here to study only for a semester,
the Office of Student Affairs has
planned a rigorous schedule which
will take them to Chicago, the
River Rouge factory and other
sites of interest in the Detroit area.
In between these trips, the stu-
dents are each taking six to
eight hours of classes for credit
an trying to find out as much
about American college campus
life as possible.
The German students are stay-
mg in fraterpity and sorority
houses, quadrangles and private
houses, but under an OSA plan,
each will switch to different liv-
ing quarters in the middle of the
semester so they can each see dif-
ference types of student life at the
University.

Prof. Pollock
Plans Report
On Germany
Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, will broadcast his first
public report since returning from
Germany at' 12:30 Sunday over
radio station WJR.
Prof. Pollock, a specialist on the
government of Germany, spent
several weeks in Europe during the
summer on a study of German pol-
itics, elections and present-day
problems.
With George Cushing as moder-
ator, Prof. Pollock will discuss the
significance of the repudiation of
communism in Germany from his
recent observations on a program
entitled "In Our Opinion."
Prof. Pollock has served as ad-
visor to numerous American offi-
cials in Germany Including Gen-
eral Lucius B. Clay and High Com-
missioner John J. McCloy.
Accompanied by Prof. Frank
Grace, Prof. Daniel B. McHargue
and Henry L. Bretton, all of the
political science department, he
compiled data onGermany from
personal observations until his re-
turn to the United States on Sep-
tember 23.

The student council at Heidel-
berg works out programs in liber-
al arts courses with the individual
professor who will teach the class
during the following semester,
making changes in the course's
subject matter and lecture times,
they add.
* * *
ON AMERICAN campus life in
general, the group's most repeated
comment is "it's so informal here."
In Germany, they explain, there
is seldom any close personal
friendship between professor and
student. A former practice Of pro-
fessors' inviting a few students to
dinner weekly is now largely dis-
continued, they say, commenting
that professors have very little
money at present to live on and
that the student enrollment has
greatly enlarged in recent years.
When Heidelberg was found-
ed in 1386 the ratio of students
to professots was four to one,
Greeks.egin

Initiating a new University tel-
evision series, "Studio Sampler,"
fraternity and sorority rushing as
set up on campus will be discuss-

"IN ALL OF Germany." they
went on, "there are only three or
four large student-operated dor-
mitories. All of these have been
established since the war.
A single dormitory at Heidel-
berg-the Collegiam Acadenu-
cum-was built in 1750. Orig-
inally a Jesuit college, it served
as headquarters for part of the
German army during the last
war and was donated to the
university after the war, after
being restored by the McCloy
Foundation. Schoenfeld, who
was head of activities in the
dormitory last year, said the 150
men residing in the medieval
building find living costs far less
expensive than if they stayed in
the town. A large number of
foreign students live there, he
added, and all the residents en-
joy being able to operate their
own dormitory.
Most students at Heidelberg,
however, do find private apart-
ments or stay in their own homes.
Old fencing societies, harbors for
highest and militaristic influ-
ences in former times, are now
not nearly as strong as they used
to be, according to the Heidelberg
students. The six admitted, how-
ever, that some fencing fraterni-
ties do exist at Heidelberg in spite

of the natives with whom
works.
