Pakistani Cites Virtues
Of Student Exchange

by 13uZ nAI.CEIiV1
"Technical instruction given in
America is the best in the world,
and Pakistan is very appreciative
of the fact that its students can
come to America and get this in-
struction," S. G. Khaliq, attache
from the Pakistan Embassy said.
Khaliq, who is cultural and edu-

paintings and art work He also
supervises programs of the songs
and dances of his native country
in addition to making speeches on
many occasions.
Attends Class
While at the University he at-
tended a class in Near Eastern
studies, history 160, and spoke to
the students.
Khaliq stated that the student
exchange program is extremely
useful in promoting understand-
ing between different countries.
He explained that this was a
means which should lead to friend-
ship and peace in the world.
"Pakistani men receive good
treatment in the United States,"
Khaliq declared.,"When they re-
turn to Pakistan they act as un-
official goodwill ambassadors for
the United States.
After studying here, Pakistani
students return to their homeland
and enter the scientific and cul-
tural fields there.
American Women
Khaliq mentioned that ii Amer-
ica women appear very active. He
also thought that the tempo of
life here is extremely fast
In order for a student to come
to America on the student -ex-
change plan he must have a good
cultural and academic background.
After applications are examined
carefully, the best five or 10 ap-
plicants are chosen to come to
the United States.
"In Pakistan there is no such
thing as dating," he remarked.
"Marriages are arranged by the
parents. The more educated wom-
en do not get married until they
are 20 while the other women be-
gin marrying at about 16."
Khaliq expressed the immense
pride which he feels in the Paki-
stani students studying through-
out the United States.
The Pakistani representative
has spent the last three years in
the United States, living in Wash-
ington, D C. He plans to return
to his native country sometime
this year.
