PAG$ FIVE'

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1956 THE MICHIGAN DAILY PAGE FIVE

BUSINESS AND PLEASURE - 'The Daily' is one organization on
campus which combines business with pleasure. These hard work-
ing members cordially invite tryouts for the Women's Staff. The
meeting will be held at 4 p.m. In the Student Publications Build-
ing, located at 420 Maynard St.
Women S ta InviteS
Tryouts to Meeting
Dear Coeds,
In recent years the Women's Staff of The Daily has prided
itself in putting out an activities page as well as a page for and
about women.
Fashions and social affairs now share the page with news and
features on campus projects. The Women's Staff tries to appeal to
the campus-as-a-whole, covering the doings of all University organi-
zations and their correlation with each other, as well as those com-
munity affairs directly connected with them.
The women's contingent of The Daily consists of a Women's Edi-
tor, and Associate Women's Editor, night editors and soph staffers.
Each term a new group of tryouts learns the fundamentals of
head-writing, copy-reading and writing stories in "Daily style."
At the end of their first semester, they receive beats, covering
campus and community groups.
After one or two semesters on the Women's Staff, coeds ad-
vance to writing news stories, features, special interviews and plan-
ning pages. Finally comes promotion to night editors which includes
the responsibility of putting out the page one night a week.
Experience is not necessary for the staff and openings are
available to coeds of all classes.
Here is your chance to not only learn the fundamentals of'
putting out a paper, but to meet interesting people and really get
to know your University.
We hope to see you at the tryout meeting for the Women'sStaff
at 4 p.m. today at the Student Publications Building behind Betsy
Barbour Residence Hall.
Sincerely,
Virginia Robertson
Women's Editor
Janie Fowler
Associate Women's Editor

'Experiment' Offers Op
To Learn International

portunity

By SUE RAUNHEIM
What is it like to live in a for- t
eign country wtih a family whose
culture and environment are so
very different from your own? g
The Experiment in Internation-
al Living which several university
students have participated in, iss
an excellent way to find out.
S t u d e n t s make applications1
which must be sent to Putney,
Vermont, headquarters for this or-
ganization. Here they are readI
and judged for academic grades,
specific language requirementsc
and recommendations.s
Placed in GroupsC
Once a student is accepted forf
this experiment, he is placed in
a group with ten other students
and a leader. The leader usually is
a person who knows the language
of the country and who has trav-
eled in Europe, or in that parti-
cular country.
The "Experimenters" travel on
a student ship which takes them to
the first part of their trip. After
arriving in a specific port, the
various groups go to a certain city
or village. Each member of the
group is then sent to live with a
different family in the same gen-
eral area.
Barbara Hecht, a senior in the
literary college, spent the summer
of 1952 in St. Etienne, France,
where she lived with a French
family. According to Miss Hecht,
this family accepted her as a mem-
ber of their own household.
Acclimating to the Family 1
Miss Hecht explained. "On this
experiment one must acclimate
oneself to the family and partici-
pate in their daily activities. In
the morning, I helped the mother
of the house buy food and in the
afternoon I would go swimming or
play tennis." One of her favorite
experiences consisted of riding her1
bicycle out into the country withj
her "French sister," in order to1
visit old churches and chateaux.
Describing the family she lived
with, Miss Hecht explained that
the father was a lawyer and that
there were two girls and one boy
plus the mother, composing a
' ,_,--BTold considered to be upper
middle class.' "Everyone was ex-
tremely understanding and sym-
pathetic," she commented.
Weekly Meetings Held
Continuing, Miss Hecht stated,
"Once a week the group would
have meetings at which time we
would discuss party arrangements,
problems, and plans for a future
trip. The parties were called "sur-
prise parties," although they were
well planned and not at all unex-
pected. Each French family of-
fered to have one party during
their stay."
"Our last party was called the
American party," she said, "be-
cause at this affair we tried to
make hamburgers and hot dogs.
For refreshments the American
students served. cokes, but wine
still remained the favorite bev-
.rage.

Afterliving" with ths famiie

Franco-American students and}
their leaders traveled up the At-
lantic coast in the province of
Britany, where they visited many
interesting places.
Miss Hecht mentioned that one
of the most beautiful sites she
saw was at Le Mont St. Michel.
She also visited the pituresque
little port of San Malo.
The students spent one week
biking through the Valley of the
Loire in order to see the various
chateaux. From Blois, the French
students returned to their homes
and the Americans went to Paris
for eight days.
Parisian Delights
"Paris is a city of beauty and
delights," exclaimed Miss Hecht.1
