Pakistanis Find Home in Ann Arbor

"Cartoonival 1957" hats sit on
he mantle, a do-it-yourself hi-fi
it stands half-assembled in a
corner and a Daily lies folded on
a chair.
Just a glance around the living
room of this three-room apart-
ment leads one to believe that it
houses typical University students.
A closer look at the room reveals
a Pakistan flag.
When one looks at the residents,
he sees three men who are neither
American nor University stu-
Graduate Students
They are H. Masood Sohail, '56,
24 years old; Abu J. M. Hasan, '56,
26 years old, and M. Mohsin Qu-
reshi, '55, 27 years old.
Citizens of Pakistan, they came
to the University for graduate
work in engineering. Sohail ar-
rived in 1952, Hasan and Qureshi
in 1955.
Because the Bureau of Immi-
gration and Naturalization grants
foreign students permission to
stay in the U.S. a year to 18
months after completing their for-
mal education the trio is now
receiving practical training in a
local civil engineering firm.
Although they could have taken
jobs anywhere in the country,
they chose to stay in Ann Arbor
because it's their "second home."
Easy t Make Friends
"We've become involved in the
American, and particularly Ann
Arbor, way of life," Qureshi said.
"We stay here .because of the
charm of the University," added
"Everyone here is on the stu-
dent level, so it's easy to make
friends. Whether you know a per-
son or not, if you say 'Hi,' they'll
answer you," he added.
The trio takes part in Interna-
tional Center activities attends
lectures, concerts, symphonies,
"cinemas," and football games.
Never Missed a Game
"We have never missed a foot-
ball game played here. If the game
is at another stadium, we always
listen to it on the radio," Qureshi
"The behavior of the fans in
the stadium is really something to
( watch. If Michigan is playing
State-Boy. It's always exciting,"
laughed Hasan.
They go to the Union often. On
their last visit they bought "Car-
toonival" hats.
"It really was very funny, the
way everyone laughed at us. When
American students wear stunt out-
fits, nobody cares; but when an
a exchange student does, he becomes
an item of curiousity," Sohail
Misconceptions Stopped
"We bought our hats for the
quartet, which we call the 'Four
Bubus' after Harry Bellefonte's
hit song. The fourth member is a
University coed. We do more talk-
ing than singing," Hasan added.
According to the three men,
Pakistanis have great misconcep-
tions about America.
They were told by their friends
that they were going to the land

Abu J. M. Hasan, Pakistani holders of University engineering
degrees, put together a do-it-yourself hi-fi kit.

of the rich, where University de-
grees are handed out like candy
"We soon found that this was
not true. Here the professors make
you work," said Sohail.
Exams Count More
"In Pakistan there are no blue-
books, open-book tests, or quizes.
We are given only a final exam.
We either pass or wait for the
next year's final," Hasan said.
"I like the. American system
much better," Qureshi added,
"However, I .would tell everyone
to think many times before leav-
ing Pakistan to study here. A stu-
dent here has to work his soul
out," he continued.
Informal Relationships
The most amazing part of the
American system of education is
the relationship between student
and teacher.
"In Pakistan we never mention
a teacher's name. He is called
either 'Sir' or 'Professor'," com-
mented Hasan.
F Notices

"The instructors here are as
helpful as private tutors and just
as friendly," Sohail added.
Americans have as many mis-
conceptions about Pakistan as
Pakistanis have about America.
"People in this country refuse
to believe that Pakistan is no
longer a part of India. In fact,
the University addressed my let-
ter of acceptance to 'Pakistan,
India'," Sohail said.
All three of the men will return
to Pakistan when their training
period in America is finished.

"We'll never forget Ann Arbor,"
Qureshi said sadly.
"I don't know how we will ever
go back," Sohail added. May Festival Concerts, May 2, 3, 4
