Director Tells of World Travels

} By ARLINE LEWIS
Back at his desk after a 100 day
"field trip" around the world,
James M. Davis, Director of the
International Center, can reflect
on the people and the places he
has seen.
The sandy-haired director set
out in January on a Rockefeller
Foundation grant to calculate the
effects of American education on
foreign students and therrby
strengthen the international pro-
gram at the University.
His travels took him to 26 coun-
tries from Japan to Eigland and
brought him into contact with 900
alumni of American universities.
Aside from a riot in Cyprus and
a nerve-racking plan landing,
Davis considers his trip quite calm.
Have Trained Leaders
"In most of Asia we have trained
key leaders," he said, mentioning
several influential men, "who have
the warmest feelings toward the
United States."
The stocky director documented
his remark by producing a photo-
graph of several Chinese grouped
behind a- huge Michigan banner
from a folder marked "Hong
Kong,"
"A group of University alumni
met me at the airport," he said.
"In a restaurant and at the bank-
ers club they chatted about the
University and broke into familiar
songs and cheers."

In Bombay members of a Michi-
gan Club questioned Davis inces-
santly about football. "The things
they remembered most about their
time here were the personal friend-
ships with other students and pro-
fessors.
India and Korea were the only
countries that the Center ?lead had
visited before. "I was quite thrilled
with the development of fairly
widespread feeling for self govern-
ment in India," he said, fingering
his ever-present pipe.
Having visited several cities and
many small villages, Davis re-
marked that living conditions had
improved since the years of World
War II, when he had been there
last.
Comments on Education
In Europe, he continued, the
attitudes towards American edu-
cation are considerably dimmer.
"Although the bachelors degree is
over-valued in Asia it is seriously
under-valued in European coun-
tries."
"Europeans consider their sec-
ondary education equivalent to
American college educations. I do
not see it that way at all," he re-
plied emphatically -
Accompanied by Dave Learned,
the SGC sponsored exchange stu-
dent at the Free University of
Berlin, Davis visited the Commun-
ist sector of the city.
Recalls His Impressions
"What impressed me most," he
said, "was a group of workmen re-
moving Stalin's inscriptions from
a statue." Davis, previously work-
ing at the University of Washing-
ton, searched through a pile of
accumulated papers on his desk to
find a photo of the scene he de-
scribed.

"I'm in the process of compiling
a report," he explained with a
smile, not finding the picture.
The ruddy complexioned direc-
tor, who has been at the University
since the summer of 1954, stayed
with many families during his trip.
"I was graciously received every-
where I went," he said.
Discusses Foreign Policy
Referring to criticisms of foreign
policy Davis cited the Goa, Kash-
mir and Arab questions as those
most often brought up.
"Each country," he remarked
simultaineously puffing his pipe,
"evaluates American policy with
regard to their own particular in-
terest. It's impossible for a great
power to be liked everywhere."
Although foreign alumni of
universities in the United States
were just as vociferous in their
criticisms, they treated our policies
with understanding, "like one of
the family."
Needs More Exchange Programs
In relation to his job, Davis con-
siders his travels of vital impor-
tance. "I realize the need for a
more greatly extended exchange
program on both faculty and stu-
dent levels and having a better
understanding of the transitions
visiting students must make in
coming to the U.S." he said.
Davis as director of the Inter-
national Center must "look after"
1,600' foreign students, who will
return home with feelings and
judgements about the United
States, in addition to knowledge of
particular fields.
Placing his pipe down momen-
tarily, Davis commented that he
now fully realized the strategic
nature of his work in regard to
international relations.

Come rain or come shine over
100 high school girls from this area
will be entertairied Saturday by
the women in the Physical Educa-
tion Club.
Weather permitting, the Play
Day will begin at Palmer Field
with active participation by the
girls in such activities as volley-
ball, tennis, baseball, and putting.
If the usual Ann Arbor weather
prevails, the activities will be taken
indoors to Barbour Gymnasium.
Lunch will provide a welcome
rest for the girls. Each one will
furnish her own box lunch with
refreshments and desserts provided
by the club. Dr. Margaret Bell,
Chairman of the Women's Physi-
cal Education Program, will speak
to the girls after the luncheon.
Different sports equipment or
parts of the sport itself will be
demonstrated to the girls after
lunch.
The visitors will also have a
chance to witness a program fea-
turing various types of dancing.
Freshman women will go through
the paces of a square dance with
the seniors calling. Sophomore
coeds will enact the traditional
folk dances and junior women the
modern dances.

afternoon performance of the
Michifish show will round out the
busy day for the girls.
