Russian Tells Impressions of U.S.

Nickolos Gubin, 57 year old
South Quad janitor, who fought
against the Communists in the
Russian Civil War of 1920, criti-
cizes the strikes of American in-
dustries, believing that they are in-
spired by the Communists.
"The workers have too much
freedom," he said in Russian. The
interview was carried on with Al
Monks, Grad., a Russian language
student here, who acted as trans-
lator. "People are very well off in
America," he emphasized, "yet
they are always striking or hop-
ing for better things."
"BUT I'M not a citizen yet, and
I feel that I haven't the right to
criticize a country to which I don't
belong," he said smiling. He
strongly added that he was grate-
ful for having America accept him.
In 1951 he was deported by
the Communists because of ear-
lier anti-Communist activity. He
has lived in Ann Arbor since his
arrival in America in 1951, ex-
cept for three days in New York
and two weeks in Detroit. He
lives alone and at present is
striving to learn English, for he
can only speak a few words. In
three more years Gubin will be-
come a citizen of the United
States, by then having remained
in this country for five years.
Commenting on America, he
said contemplatively, "Very rich
country and very hospitable peo-
Gubin was once a Russian musi-
cian, composer, and conductor. He
began his music career in high
school at Warsaw, where he stud-
ied clarinet. After high school he
attended a military academy at
Moscow. There he conducted a

military orchestra and began his
military career.
AFTER THE Russian Civil War,
he journeyed to Yugoslavia where
he met his Hungarian wife, who is
still living in that country. The
following year, in 1921, he con-
ducted a choir and during this
time also played clarinet and the
cello. At the seaport city of Du-
brovnik, Yugoslavia, he taught
music and conducted in high
school, later playing in the Du-
brovnik Symphonic Orchestra as a
Gubin said that he worked
long and hard at music. "I stud-
ied and learned most of the
music on my own," he said. "You
not only have to have intelli-
gence," he continued, "but you

Of Individual
At Symposium
Discussion at yesterday's forumr
on college and university teaching
centered around methods of teach-
ing the student as an individual.
Leading off the three-member
symposium was Prof. Warren A
Ketcham of the education school;
who explained what reasearch in
the education school shows aboui
differences in individual abilities.
THE EDUCATOR reminded the
audience of teachers and graduate
students that learning takes place
in each individual, even though
they are group members. "As peo-
ple grow older, they become dif-
ferent, he explained, adding that
the greatest difference in the
spread of knowledge occurs at the
college age."
Taking up the discussion,
Prof. Warner G. Rice, chairman
of the English Department, ex-
plained methods of the English
department in individualizing
teaching, particularly for the
better student. Personalizing the
freshman English course by add-
ing student-faculty conferences
makes all the difference in the
world, he pointed out.
Small writing classes for crea-
tive writers and the honors pro-
gram are also part of the depart-
ment's methods of individual
r teaching, according to Prof. Rice.
Prof. Algo D. Henderson of the
education school concluded the
symposium with illustrations from
other colleges of ways to individ-
ualize the program. Examples giv-
en were the seminar method for
honors students at Swarthmore
College and the program at Johns
Hopkins University where the stu-
dent starts out with specialized
J workand then advances at his own

also have to

have a gift from,

Since he has come to America,
he has stopped most of his music
playing and writing. "You have to
have the mood and objective in
order to create any music."
Perhaps many South Quadders
have seen this snowy-haired man
with sharp features and gentle
eyes around the corridors and lob-
bies mopping or dusting. "Being a
janitor isn't the best job," he said,
"but I like the working conditions
here." He smiled and said, "I'm
thankful for the three full meals
every day."
Lecture Given
In a pictorial study of the archi-
tecture of the Great Roman Villa,
Axel Boethius, professor of classi-
cal archaeology and history at
Goteborg University, Sweden, de-
scribed its importance as a docu-
ment of Roman luxury during the
reign of Nero in his lecture yester-
Prof. Boethius told how the lux-
urious facade and interior paint-
ings influenced Renaissance archi-
tecture. The chamber with a re-
volving dome left a marked influ-
ence on later architecture and im-
pressed historians of the time, the
professor continued.
Contrasting the luxuries of the
"Golden House of Nero" with Ro-
man public buildings, Prof. Boeth-
ius also pointed out the symbolic
value of the architecture and dec-

New Trend
In Language
Study Shown
Contrary to popular belief, for-
eign language study is on the in-
crease in the nation's colleges,
according to a survey by the Mod-
ern Language Association of Amer-
"The much-advertised and great-
ly exaggerated trend away from
foreign language requirements has
been halted and reversed," Prof.
William R. Parker, executive sec-
retary of MLA, said in a recent
"THERE NEVER was such a
trend," commented Prof. Charles
N. Staubach, chairman of the ro-
mance language dept. "There is
much more favorable attitude to-
ward the study of romance lan-
guages among educational ad-
ministrators than is commonly
More students are taking lan-
guage courses today than at any
time since 1947, Prof. Parker
noted. "Eighty-five percent of
the accredited liberal arts col-
leges in the country demand
some knowledge of a foreign lan-
guage for the B.A. degree," he
pointed out, "and 30 per cent
have a foreign language en-
trance requirement."
Prof. Staubach said he believed
the misunderstanding of the situa-
tion "arises from the tendency to
feature negative remarks." Only
one in ten of the 767 accredited
arts colleges ever abandoned the
foreign language degree require-
ment and three of these have re-
stored it, Prof. Parker pointed out
in his report.'
"We hope in a couple of months,
to release concrete information,
from the state of Michigan on
foreign language study," Prof.
Staubach added.
Independent of the MLA, Prof.
Vincent A. Scanio of the Uni-
versity romance language depart-
ment made a survey last year of
90 major U.S. colleges and found
a complete absence of the reput-
ed trend away from foreign lang-
uage requirements.

Spain Provides Mixture
Of Old, Modern Worlds
By SHIRLEY KLEIN~~ - -- --

If University students like their
beer mild and their wine spark-
ling, Spain is the country to visit.
Although no longer known as
the cheapest country for tour-
ists, prices in Spain still range
far below those in most Euro-
pean countries. The countryside
is magnificent, and it's free.
AS ONE DRIVES through the
Ranges of the South, he can see
why Europeans use pint-sized
autos. The sharp curves and rug-
ged terrain necessitate this. Hordes
of strange, dark green cork trees
are noticeable along the way.
(Spain is foremost among nations
in her production of cork.)
Herds of goats roam the hills.
The nimble creatures supply
Spain with most of her milk
and butter. Tourists usually
don't drink the unpasteurized
milk, but the butter is rich and
Scrawny, hardy little burros,
loaded down with their masters',
cargo of pottery and produce, move'
to the side of the road as autos
whiz by. Some men ride the bur-
ors for transportation, dwarfing
the animals.
Along the road are pill boxes
and bombed buildings, remnants
of the Civil War. Franco's sold-
iers, uniformed in olive green, pass
by in troop trucks.
One may stop at a local tavern
for a mid-morn thirst quencher
of "cerveza." A tall, dark pastery
vender offers crisp, flaky "pastel-
Spanish homes reflects the bright
sunlight. Vibrantly red and yel-
low flowers appear from the win-
dow boxes. Side streets are so
narrow that one can reach right
across the way from his home to
his neighbor's grilled porch or
Stores in Spain open at 9 a.m.
and close at 1 p.m. for siesta.
They reopen from 4-8 p.m. when
it is pleasant to amble about the
town, perhaps relaxing with a
sip or two of wine at a side-walk
Dinner is usually served from
10:30 p.m. until midnight in Spain.
Tourists get a wide variety of
courses ranging from melon orI
"entremeses" (hors d'oeuvers) to
fish or eggs to meat and salad
to dessert, fruit, and cheese. Bev-
erages are not included in the
price of a meal.I
It is interesting to note that
in Spain charity is taken care of
by the government. Begging is

Driver Forum
Slated Today
Discussions of national and state
trends in driver education and
licensing will highlight the sec-
ond annual Conference for Teach-
ers of Driver Education today.
Nearly 150 persons from through-
out the state are expected to at-
tend the two sessions which will
be held at 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
in the Union. Sponsored by the
Education School and the Exten-
sion Service, the conference will
also feature samples of the latest
equipment for testing drivers.

Frontera since 1730, operates on
a cooperative basis. Their em-
ployees live right on the factory
grounds. Incidentally, free samples
in abundance are offered after a
tour through the place.
In the caves of Sacramonte
in Granada are the gypsies, sing-
ing, dancing and playing their
guitars. Gaily dressed and even
gayer in spirits, they perform
for the tourists in their small,
white-washed caves, their voices
reverberating loudly until the
beat of the music seems to surge
within the onlookers.
Contrasting the night spots of
Madrid, tourist to native, one ex-
periences somewhat of a surprise.
The huge, English speaking "Villa
Rosa" serves U. S. drinks while
the "Samba", small and gay, has
a comedian doing a take off on
an American tourist.
At least one-third of the spec-
tators at a bull fight in a large
Spanish city are tourists. Venders
sell candy, ice cream, cigarettes
and other refreshments. Located
under the seats of the ring are
a chapel for the matadors, a hos-
pital and room for emergency
surgery as well as stables and room
to cut up the beasts. The smaller
the bullring the better, for then
the matador has less room to es-
cape the bull and there is more
room for the audience.

Included among the speakers are

tion CKLW, Detroit; Charles Resources Honor

tion today starting at 2 p.m. in

Carr Talks
n Juvenile
Addressing the fifteenth annual
conference of Sixth Circuit fed-
eral judges at the Law School yes-
terday, Prof. Lowell J. Carr of the
sociology department commented
that only one-half of one per cent
of all juvenile delinquents come
before the Court.
Continuing, Prof. Carr observ-
ed that even this small number
is important because it tends to
set the pattern by which other
courts can follow.
SPEAKING on "A sociological
Theory of Delinquency Control
and the Role of Federal Agencies,"
Prof. Carr outlined the history of
juvenile delinquency and phases
of attacking the problem.
Concepts of the Federal Youth
Corrections Act and its opera-
tion were discussed by George L.
Reed, Chairman of the Youth
Correction Division of the U. S.
Parole Board.
Today's program presided over
by Chief Justice Charles C. Sim-
ons of the U. S. Court of Appeals,
Sixth District, will feature an ad-
dress by Prof. Paul G. Kauper of
the Law School on "A Comparison
of Congressional Investigative Pro-
cedures and Judicial Procedures
with reference to the Examination
of Witnesses."
