THE FOREIGN STUDENT:
Long Walk in a Desert

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a series
of articles on the' foreign student by a graduate
student in journalism from Amsterdam.)
By EDDY LACHMAN
T WAS ONE of those beautiful warm fall
days on the campus. The trees were re-
splendent and the multiple colors of the
shirts and sweaters worn by the thousands
who, laughing and talking, walked leisurely
around the halls, spelt nothing but sheer
happiness. On the diagonal, two of the
thousand foreign students at the University
met. One was from India and one was from
Europe. They asked each other how they felt.
And they agreed on on thing immediately:
they felt like they were walking through a
desert.
How come? The town of Ann Arbor on
this cool autumn morning revealed noth-
Sng that made you think of a desert. Nor
did the friendly, open faces of the students
bear any resemblance to the dry faces of
Beduins and Arabs. No camels around ei-
ther except the ones you smoke. Something
wrong with those students? Yes and no.
They come from completely different sur-
roundings; they left their friends; most of
them have never been thrust together with
such a huge quantity of people. It is true
that they are not left with the feeling that
nobody cares about them. The Institute of
International Education has arranged their
}stay here; they have been received and regis-
'tered by the International Center of the Uni-
versity; get-togethers, trips, mixers, etc.,
have been arranged for them. But somehow
-,these have not done the trick. The two stu-
dents have .not made any friends yet. They
feel like they are walking in the desert.
The peculiar malady they are suffering
from is cultural shock, the well-known butt
little spoken of illness that befalls every
person in a foreign country. Most American
students in Europe suffer from it too. The
anthropologist Cora Dubois of Chicago Uni-
versity says about cultural shock: "It is
something' like extending your customary
and conventional smile to indicate good will
and receiving as an answer a deadpan state;
or like extending your hano and seeing it ig-
nored in favor .of the sawasti gesture of the
Thai." When you lose your habitual sur-
roundings and the subconscious cues with
which you keep in contact with your daily
life, when you-are, without knowing it, con-
stantly irritated by the groping for words in
a foreign language, when you are surround-
ed by people with a different set of values
than your own, you get cultural shock. You
then try to find people who suffer from
the same disease.
That's why you find in the halls of cer-
tain hotels in Paris Americans sitting
around together. They don't know each
other very well, but now they suddenly be-
come intimate friends. They gripe about
the French in broad generalizations. While
they might usually be "live-and-let-live"
patriots, they become chauvinists now.
To an Englishman abroad his five o'clock
tea is more important than it will ever be at
home. An American in Asia will think that
nothing is quite as important as having
American beer (well-iced). The little things
of home become terribly important and the

little things one does not like about the host
country become even more important. When
you begin hearing broad and unusually der-
rogatory comments like the Burmese are
lazy, the Indians are ignorant, the French
are grasping, the Americans are materialist-
ic, or naive or shallow-then you can be
fairly sure that the speaker is suffering
from cultural shock. And walking along in
his host country he feels like the two on the
diag felt.
* * * *
rP{ ERE is another thing. Most of the for-
eign students who are here on Fulbright
or other grants are older than the American
students. They find themselves put back into
what they see as a high school atmosphere.
In Europe for instance, a professor is still
a professor, a "learned one" who lives in
the distant land of knowledge. He is not a
discussion leader or an advisor on how to
study. The European student is left free to
come and listen or not to come and listen. He
has perhaps one exam a year, consisting of
a personal interview with his professor.
Comprehensive exams, ten-minute quizzes,
blue books to his mind belong to high school.
The system of supervision outside the uni-
versity buildings -no drinking, living in
university approved houses, hours for the
coeds, driving permits-appears to the for-
eigner as an interference with the individu-
al liberty of the student.
Slowly the foreigner begins to feel that
no individual feelings or utterances are
possible in this desert of rules, regulations
and conforming personalities. After his in-
itial enthusiasm of meeting America and
Americans, he soon becomes tired and dis-
illusioned with meeting hundreds of new
faces which, friendly as they might be,
seem bent rather on meeting him than
knowing him. One foreign student told
me: "I am used to talking deep into the
night about highly intellectual affairs. I
laugh at intellectualism too. But not quite
so steadfastly and loud as the American
students. I am used to having two or three
intimate friends, with whom I share my
deepest thoughts. I am not used to having
a hundred acduaintances with whom I
only exchange a desert full of platitudes.'
This state of cultural' shock, of complete
loneliness in the crowd, of hate against a
mass society bent on making it members
conform to a certain pattern, se'ts in two to
six months after the student has reached the
university. A study by Norman Kiell on In-
dian students in the U.S. showed even a
marked decrease in favorable opinion about
this country after four to forty months here.
Is the student exchange program a failure
then? Some of these signs seem to indicate
that it is not as successful as it could be.
Most of the "grant-students" leave the coun-
try after one year. It is very probable that
they will talk at home about the frustra-
tions and irritations encountered here.
Many of them will think back to their time
in America as a long walk in a desert, in
search of an equally lonely traveller with
whom they can share their fear of what p-
pears to them the greatest emptiness ey-tr
created.

An Editorial
[T IS NATURAL, following an event like
the recent demise of the Arts Theater
Club, that there should be much poking
behind the unbalanced balance sheets to
ferret out the real reason why. For those
closest to the theater, the explanation has
seemed to lie somewhere between inade-
quate management and the difficulty of
getting sufficient community support be-
hind an experimental theater group. For-
tunately, most of the post-mortems have
indulged in little finger-pointing; neither
the theater nor the town is solely to blame,
and there is not much long-run comfort
in blaming one or the other anyway.
To those who voice the honest protest
of whether such a theater can ever survive
here there is only one answer: it did sur-
vive, even if on a meatball diet, for three
years. With a few less professional actors
and reactivated community interest it
could possibly make a go of it sometime
in the future.
But for the present, 180 canvas chairs
have been folded or awarded to creditors,
the discussion nights and coffee inter-
missions and Children's Theater produc-
tions are things-very nice things-of the
past. And on the other side, young actors
already typed on Broadway as juvenile
delinquents can no longer come here to
play Knights of Burning Pestles, obscure
but interesting scripts will lose one more
chance of being gi~ven a first or second or
third run.
What the Arts Theater closing leaves in
terms of current Ann Arbor drama is a
group of organizations admittedly dedi-
cated to the pursuit of producing the tried
and true. We do not ask that they deviate
from this pursuit, only that they attempt
to put more emphasis on the true than
the tried. The Speech Department, the
Student.Players, the Drama Festival can-
not count on absorbing the Arts Theater
membership unless they adopt some of the
group's liveliness and professional stand-
ards as well.

At Tulane and Georgia -
Censorship

THAT GORGON of the press, censorship,
has reared its ugly head in two South-
ern colleges leaving a bad taste in the.
mouths of those who trumpet intellectual
freedom.
At Tulane University, the student coun-
cil severly reprimanded the student paper,'
Hullabalo, for printing "opinionated ma-
terial" without the consent of the paper's
faculty advisors.
Th~e State Sets
A Record
WHEN THE STATE of Michigan recently
announced that its total of traffic f a-
talities in 1953 was higher than that of any
previous year in history, most people dedi-
cated a moment to muse that the fact was
interesting and proceeded to dismiss it os
bearing no other significance.
This reaction, or lack of reaction, to the
announcement is a rather conspicuous in-
dication of one of the two factors behind
the high total. It reflects the lack of inter-
est and carelessness concerning the safe
operation of an automobile which studies
have revealed is the chief cause of acci-
dents. The other cause is probably that
there are more cars than ever.
But the lack of interest in safety on the
roads is one that can be 2orrected, not by
ostentatious campaigns, but by individual
determination. The carelessness in driving

Perhaps the more serious of the two in-
stances occurred at the University of Georgia
where an anti-discrimination editorial in-
curred the wrath of Roy Harris, politically
powerful University regent. A second editor-
ial criticizing Regent Harris for censuring
the Red and' Black, Georgia's undergraduate
paper, resulted in the resignation of the two
top editors. After a second pair of editors
quit in disgust, the paper was left to a for-
mer assistant sports editor and a reporter.
All copy is now rigorously inspected by facul-
ty advisors before the paper goes to press.
Censorship of ideas is bad in any in-
stance but it is particularly odious at an
institution presumably devoted to the fur-
thering of intellectual concepts.
The Tulane student council showed an in-
tolerable ignorance of the proper function of
a newspaper when it admonished the Hulla-
baloo for printing "opinionated material."
To force students who are being trained to
think for themselves to go running to the
faculty before forming opinions is ridiculous;
worse than that, it is dangerous.
The attitude of Georgia regent, Roy
Harris, may be properly summized from
some remarks quoted in Time magazine:
"Every time I see some of these sissy-
squirts writing editorials, I think we need
more he-men playing football and less
sissies working for newspapers!"
It is unfortunate that Regent Harris, in
squelching the Red and Black's attempts to
strike out against segregation, could rot
recognize the importance of a free exchange
of ideas in a democracy. But more import-
ant, neither the Tulane student council nor
Harris realized that it is not only a news-

At Hill Auditorium . .
TORONTO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA,
Sir Ernest MacMillan, Conductor, with
Betty-Jean Hagen, violinist
HILL AUDITORIUM played host last night
to a very creditable concert by Sir Ernest
MacMillan and the Toronto Symphony Or-
chestra. Playing their first Ann Arbor con-
cert, the orchestra, considered Canada's fin-
est, was technically quite proficient. As a
unit their tone emphasized an even round-
ness, more subdued than the whirlwind bril-
liance of an orchestra like the Boston or the
plushness usually associated with a French
orchestra.
The string section particularly shone out
as an example of even playing and strict
blend. In the Overture to Euryanthe by
Weber, it was their precision and versa-
tility in rapid allegro passages or quiet lyric-
ism that carried the performance. The Two
Sketches for String Orchestra on French-
Canadian Airs, composed by Sir Ernest,
showed them with a lovely softness in the
gentle contrapuntal weavings of the first
song, Notre Seigneur en pauvre, and a rous-
ing vibrancy in the rhythmic second, A Saint
Malo. The pieces themselves were skillfully
arranged by Sir Ernest, but length in the
first caused by too much repetition, and too
much reliance on extra effects in the second
did diminish their effectiveness somewhat.'
A real surprise on the program was Miss
Betty-Jean Hagen's performance of Lalo's
"Symphonie espagnole." The advance pub-
licity for the concert hardly gave her any
notice, but she literally stole the concert
from Sir Ernest in an interpretation of
Lalo's lovely melodies that had vitality,
musicianship, and enthusiasm. To say that
her playing of this concerto reminded one
of a gypsy fiddler does not cheapen her
artistry the least as this is exactly the ap-
proach these folksy melodies demand, and
Miss Hagen's huge tone and accomplish-
ed technique easily brought out the work's
delicious schmaltz.
The main orchestral part of the program
included Benjamin Britten's orchestration
of Five Movements from Rossmi, Soirees
Musicales, Chausson's Symphony in B-flat
major, Op. 20, and as an encore William
Walton's orchestration of J. S. Bach's "Sheep
May Safely Graze." Both the Britten and
Walton arrangements were given clear-cut
interpretations, and both are intelligent and
effective musical settings.
The Chausson piece was a tour-de-forcd
for Sir Ernest. It is not easy to make hang
together as it is one of those endless-flow
nineteenth century works. But Sir Ernest
understood its underlying dynamic plan,
made sense of its never ending gestures,
and brought out its best. The woodwinds
had their main opportunity here as their
flutterings to and fro are an essential part
