Venezuelan Education System
"Our educational system," Guer-
ra said, "differs from yours in that
our high schools are divided into
two cycles. The first, lasting four
years, is standardized throughout
Venezuela, Everyone attending
takes the same courses."
About 80% of the students en-
tering this phase of the education-
al system finish the entire four
years. Those who do so may then
take a specialized course for a
year, in one of three fields: phy-
sics and math, biology and chem-
istry, or literature and philoso-
phy. Again, about 80% finish this
'prep school,' as it is called, and
go from there to a university.
Guerra came to the United
tates immediately after finishing
is special course in physics and
math, for which he received a
bachelors degree. This degree, giv-
en by the Department of Educa-
tion in Venezuela,,is considered an
achievement but does not com-
pare with a B.A from a univer-
Came to America
Guerra came in 1952 to join his
family, as his father, a pilot, was
based at New York City. He studied
English at Queens College for sev-
eral months, and in January of
1953 transferred to Hillsdale Col-
lege in Michigan.
Then, two years ago, he trans-
ferred to the University.
"I had several reasons for do-
ing this," Guerra said. "Mainly it
was because Michigan's reputation
is well-known in Venezuela, and
it has such a good engineering
school. Also, I had many friends
and countrymen studying here."
"Why did I choose to come to
an American college in the first
place? Well, Venezuela is, as you
know, undergoing very rapid ex-
"The development of the oil in-
dustry in the past few years has
made us the second larger exporter
Frank O'Connor, Irish author
and critic, will speak on "The Rise
and Decline of the Novel" at 4:15
p.m. next Tuesday in the lecture,
hall of Rackham Building.
The lecture is sponsored by the

of oil in the world. With this new
and very large industry, my gov-
ernment is making money.
"Consequently, it is interested
in developing the, country, and
we need a great deal ofutechnical
knowledge'to do so. So the gov-
ernment has been giving many
scholarships,,r particularly to en-
gineers, and sendirig students to
European and American universi-
ties to learn modern methods in
the various fields."
Guerra added that Venezuelan
development is being aided by a
great number of Americans work-
ing in the country, with 32,000 in
Little Basic Difference
Guerra said that at first he no-
ticed a great deal of difference be-
tween Venezuelan and American
ways of life, but that''"most of it
is only on the surface. As far as
day-by-day activities go, they are
The only real social difference
he still notices is the difference in
the girl-boy set-up.
"At home, there is no such thing
as 'dating,'" he said. "If a boy
meets a girl and becomes inter-
ested, he gets to know her through
someone else, preferably a member
of her family. Once you have been
invited to her house for a party,
you can return as often as you
like. But you are never able to
take her to the movies by your-
self. This might seem a handi-
cap, but the pursuit itself can be
as much fun as the informal dat-
ing arrangements here."
