Coarse Could Be Improved
Mr. Crespo said the course could
be improved, "if we could visit
other colleges and high schools
in Michigan. and see how Spanish
classes are taught."
Miss Urai Mangtrifan, of Thai-
land said. "This course helps me
to understand the American ways
of living much better, especially
the literature." She said that she
would like a short outline before
each one of Prof. Felheim's lec-
tures so that she could have a
better understanding of what ne
is going to talk about. When asked
what she liked best about the
course, she replied, "The best part
of the course is the teacher."
Pura Hernandez,. also of Puerto
Rico, added that Prof. Felheim
"conducts a perfect class." He is
so human, and he makes me feel
that he is part of the class rath-
er than above us." He was also
impressed with the professor's
memory. "He knows everyone by
name," Hernanedz remarked.
