And Their Significance

Foreign Students Serve Their Newspaper Internship Here

By MICHAEL KRAFT
Daily Staff Writer
INTERNSHIPS are usually asso-
ciated with part of a future
doctor's training, but in a unique
program at the University, the
term has a broader, even interna-
tional meaning.
Applied to the field of journal-
ism, internships can anhonce the
training of a future newspaper-
man. When part of the training
program of foreign students. it can
contribute towards promoting a
deeper understanding between na-
tions.
Combining these attributes by
bringing 'informal ambassadors"
to this country from such wide-
spread areas as Egypt, New Zea-
land. Germany and Korea, is the
task of the Foreign Journalism
Feliowship, sponsored by the Uni-
versity's journalism department.
Through the program, in opera-
tion since 1948, two foreign jour-
nalists are brought to the United
States each year. After a term's
study at the University, they spend
another year in an internship by
working on Michigan papers.
A FAMILIAR sight at the Uni-
versity, foreign students num-
ber 1,300 and give the campus an
atmosphere "so cosmopolitan I feel
at home," according to one of
this year's fellows, Wono Lee,
Grad., of Seoul, Korea.
But unlike many of the other
foreign students, who study pri-
marily engineering or the physical
sciences, the journalism Fellows

they learn about the United States through

close contact with American

institutions,

customs, and people in all walks of life

FOREIGN FELLOW-Wono Lee, one of the foreign students studying journalism at the University
this year, chats with his counselor, Prof. Karl F. Zeisler of the journalism department.

will be in a peculiarly expressive
position and more easily able to
relate their views on America
when they return home.,
Having worked closely with the
Foreign Fellow, Prof. Wesley
Maurer, chairman of the journal-
ism department, describes the
program as "giving the foreign
journalists an opportunity to learn
about the United States without
interference, through close contact
with institutions of American so-
ciety and with its people in all
walks of life."
In a good many ways, journal-
ism can be regarded as providing
the widest possible window on life,
one that looks out on all levels of
people and all kinds of events.
Perhaps for this reason, Prof.
Maurer says that "because of their
experiences in the classrooms of
the University and in the Michi-
gan communities in which they
work, the journalists, when re-
turning to their homelands, are
equipped to report and write about
the United States with greater in-
sight and accuracy."
THE FELLOWS themselves em-
phasize the opportuntiy to
know Americans.
"In reporting a country," Wono
said, leaning forward from his
chair in East Quadrangle, "you
have to know the John Does. These
are the people who are really im-
portant."
A reflective man, whom a mem-
ber of the journalism department
has described as "deep, very deep,"
Wono served as an interpreter for
American troops in Korea and
was assistant to President Sigman
Rhee's press secretary before com-
ing to the United States to finish
his studies.
Hoping to work for a Korean
wire service, the Orient Press, as
the country's first Washington cor-
respondent, Wono prophesied that
"I'll be able to provide background,
supplementary stories of special
interest to Koreans, which Ameri-
can wire services cannot supply.
"WE learn what happens when,
but we seldom know why. I
think I can do a lot more service
to my country by staying here a
while longer and providing this
interpretation.
"But it'll be quite a challenge,"
he said, breaking into a frank
smile.
Coming to America in 1955 "like
so many others, filled with a de-
sire to learn but broke," Wono
enrolled with a scholarship in
Willamette University in Willa-
mette, Oregon. His Korean studies
gave him a status of a junior and
while earning his BA, he heard of
Michigan's Fellowship.
"When I finished my under-
graduate work, I couldn't quite
decide whether to stay or go back
home," he recalled, leaning back
in his chair. '
"Finally, I thought I'd see more
of America and began collecting
college catalogues. Michigan's Fel-
lowship was the best offered and
the only one with an internship
program,"
THE AWARDS grant over $4,000
for each Fellow for the two-
year period. Since the fund was
established, the University and co-
operating newspapers have ex-
pended approximately $75,000 for
the Fellowships.
To date, 18 journalists have
already taken part in the program.
Finishing his studies this June
along with Wono is Mohammed
Azhar Ali Khan, Grad., a tall, out-
going Pakistani.
In addition to their journalism
courses, the Foreign Fellows also
take classes in political science and
the other social sciences.
Azhar described it as "a good
broadening program that also
teaches the mechanics of nevs-
paper work."

taught during the last four years
of his life in this country, com-
ments of contemporary culture.
While painted in Europe and ten
years ago, with the particularly
Teutonic flavor characteristic of
German expressionism, it seems
equally valid in relation to our
own country and our own time.
The drawing by Alexander Cald-
er is an early work of one of the
ablest American sculptors, an art-
ist who, in his mobiles, introduced
a new and dynamic experience into
the visual world, This drawing
combines a whimsical sense of
humor (which he shares with
Steinberg, Steig, Thurber a n d
other humorist-illustrators of our
time) with a linear sensitivity
which is characteristic of Calder.
THE SCULPTURE by Jacques
Lipchitz is, like the Beckmann,
the work of a European artist who,
transplanting himself to a new en-
vironment, has made a significant
contribution to the American
scene. While essentially abstract
in form, the piece retains a strong
sense of humanity and conveys a
mood of joy, of exaltation, which
is suggested in the title, Happiness.

SOME CRITICS of drug therapy
maintain that the tranquilizers
are effective only because mentally
ill people are very suggestible and
that they are influenced by being
told that the drugs do help.
This is extremely unlikely to be
the whole explanation for, as Dr.
Miller puts it: "Schizophrenics'
aren't helped by deception."
Tranquilizers are more than a
fad. Most doctors agree that the
drugs have won a permanent place
in the treatment of mental and
emotional disorders.
As the use of tranquilizers be-
comes more widespread, they exert
a growing influence on our society.
After the first flush of surprise and
pleasure at the frequent.effective-
ness of the tranquilizers, doctors
are beginning to wonder just where
all this will lead us.
In the next month one out of
every 20 Americans will swallow
a tranquilizer. Among them will be
an Ann Arbor housewife.
L AST YEAR she was having
trouble with her marriage. Her
irritability and jumpiness were
apparent to her doctor and, after

discussing the situation with her,
he prescribed one of the new
tranquilizing drugs. Our friend
took a pill that afternoon and
when he husband came home she
popped one into his mouth. That
evening everything was fine and
dandy for the couple. For two
weeks they took the pills and all
was well.
Then one day the wife became
concerned over the large amount
of money her husband was spend-
ing on hi-firecords. Knowing that
if she had too much peace of mind
she couldn't give her husband a
piece of her mind, she laid off the
tranquilizer. That night she told
her husband what she thought of
his record-buying spree. Next day
they returned to the tranquilizer
and everything ran smoothly
again.
A true story? Yes. Amusing?
Perhaps. Frightening? Definitely,
for here we are faced with a situa-
tion similar to that in Aldous Hux-
ley's Brave New World where
peoples' emotions can be carefully
controlled and changed.
S MORE and more people take
tranquilizers, several other
