Student Discusses Madrid, 'U'

JAIL

( CLASSIFIED

By ANN EICHLER
It is a long way from home in
Madrid, Spain to one in Ann
Arbor, but Jose Medem made such
a trip after looking through cata-
logues of the University at the
American embassy in Spain.
Medem, who received his PhD
in civil engineering from Madrid,
is presently enrolled as a graduate
student in the business adminis-
tration school and is studying for
his masters degree with the aid
of. a scholarship from the Ameri-
can Department of State.
Compared Universities
A tall soft spoken man with a
warm spontaneous smile, Medem
sat in the chair across from me
and, lighting a cigarette, prepared
to compare the University of Ma-
drid with the University.
"One thing that really impressed
me," he said, "is that here stu-
dents have a much wider choice in
the subjects that they want to
take."
Medem said that in the studies
here "there is -a lot to assimilate.
In Madrid there were not so many
readings and when there was a
test, the students knew concrete
Ideas instead of many ideas mem-
arized from the books.
No Elective Courses
He explained that once you are
enrolled in a field of professional
study in the Spanish university,
you don't have any choice of
elective courses,
For example, Medem remarked
with a wave of his hand, "the only
Literary school course open to en-
gineers in Madrid is a history of
arts course similar to the Univer-
sity's fine art courses.-
"You also need to be proficient
in English or:German for the en-
france exam," he said.
Introduces Daughter
Medem changed the subject to
introduce me to his attractive wfe,
reda who proudly showed oiff the
newest edition of the Medem fan-
ly, Virginia. "We chose this name
iecause it isn't common in Spain,"
edem said.i
Sitting in a chair next to her
iusband, Mrs. Medem promptly
added that their family could be
alled an international center,
since Virginia will be able to
ahoose her citizenship when she is
l1.
The couple exchanged smiles as
Wedem, from Valencia, told how1
ie met his wife, a native Belgian,
shile skiing near Madrid.
Competition in Spain
Why did they come to the United
State? "There is such competi-
ion for construction managementi
n Spain," Medem answered with--
ut hesitation. "I wanted myedu-
*ation to be more extensive and
setter so that opportunities would
e greater. I chose Michigan be-
Hatcher Open House

her are holding an open housek
romi 4 to 6 p.m. today at theirt
lome.
Houses which are being honored{
kt the open house are Chi Omega,

ligma Phi.
Wenley Houise, WQ Williams
louse, WQ; Van TyneHouse, SQ;c
Oeinstueck House, AL; TaylorP
iouse, SQ; and Fletcher House
will also be guest of honor.

They were aided in their search
for accommodations in Ann Arbor
by the University International
Center. "This center," they en-
thusiastically declared, "is good
form of unity for foreign students;
a wonderful, friendly place."
While Mrs. Medem discussed
her experiences in London and as
a secretary at a school for G.I.'s in
Madrid, Medem got up to put
music on his hi-fi set.
"He constructed the set and the
amplifier himself," his wife an-
nounced with pride. Medem played
some Spanish music which "al-
though American recorded is
good," he also likes classical and-
Dixieland music.
Sports Enthusiast
Settling himself comfortably in
his chair once more, Meden en-
thustically delved into a favorite
topic-sports.
"Students here have many more
extra-curricular activities," he ob-
served. "They are very fond of
being a member of several clubs.
In Spain, most opportunities are
for sports clubs."
He discoursed with animated
gestures on our type of football,
which is called rugby in Spain
and their game which we call
soccer. : p
Describes Bullfights
This developed into a descrip-
tion of the bullfights. "Three
things, courage, technique, and art
make beautiful this sport which
many Americans call bloody and
heartless," Medem declared.
j uch as Medem likes the Uni-
versity, his scholarship is only for
one year. Then he plans to return
to Spain with his family and find
work in the management of a con-
struction firm in Madi'id.

"The suspense and red tape were
terrible," Mrs. Medem added. "At
times we thought to give it up.
More papers were required and
longer time was needed for wait-
ing on the American side of the
negotiation." Her husband nodded
in agreement as he lit another
cigarette.
The Medems came to the United
States for the first time last July
and went to Duke University for
a two-month orientation.

Tour Planned
For Vacation.
"I am going home next year and
I want to give the same friendship
to foreign - students in Japan,"
commented a University interna-
tional student after last year's
International Friendship Tour.
The tour, which takes place dur-
ing spring vacation, is open to all
international students. The com-
munities to be visited this year
include Kalamazoo, Coopersville,
Plainwell, Dowagiac, and Benton
Harbor.
The tour, says tour leader Pat
Ray of the International Center
staff, is to acquaint the students
with some of the less publicized
but most interesting aspects of
American life.
Students interested in taking
the tour should contact Miss Ray
at the receptionist's desk at the
Center before Friday.
