tian student from the University of Minnesota, and know more about
their own fields than most students in foreign countries. But outsldo
of their owen fields, their weakness is quite evident,"
"Frankness and friendliness are qualities of the American stu-
'dent," reported a student from Ugandi studying at Allegheny Col-
lege. However the friendliness was felt to be superficial and lacked
genuine interest. In being frank, the American student seeks criti-
cism, while looking only for approval."
s ~Say Self -Satisfaction harmful to World
This general self-satisfaction of the American student, the group
~concluded, is harmful to the United States and to the world.
Many of the visiting students thought the American student dis-
interested in academic freedom. They said he does not demand
enough of a. multi-sided view of the subject matter of his courses.
Realizing, however, that most colleges are limited in the' number
of staff members, the student leaders said American students should
demand access to materials which discuss all sides of a subject. These
source of information should include those impartial to the topic and
(those who clearly favor it, and oppose it.
Students should be entitled to hear any speaker advocate his
ideas, and he should encourage his school to obtain speakers with
varied and contrasting opinions and viewpoints. The foreign students
felt that it is the privilege of a professor to hold any political or re-
ligious view that he wishes. Some felt that professors were denied
this right. Miss Holland mentioned.
1The student leaders felt that American college subject matter is

side Affin,
biased pro-American. One of the participants felt that if th(
are two, aides or two approaches' to a topic, it seems that one
carefully deleted or given in a derogatory light,
The group felt that the collegiate institution -- the quiz-
not aimed at testing knowledge. Rather, they felt, it is intended
orient and direct the students' thinking in the subject along a pE
ticular line.
As leaders in their own student movements, these people E
vitally in~terested in student government and student attitudes towa
it. They have concluded that student governments tend to isolE
*themselves from the student body' In turn, they thought the studei
elect their own student government and promptly forget about it, M
Holland explained.
Feel Student Governments " Very 'Weak"
The foreign student leaders felt that there are too many inE
perienced people in student government and many people incapal
of leadership are trying to take an active part in leadership. It is t
duty of the student government to help formulate student opini
and provide leadership on important matters. In this, most parti
pants felt, student governments are very weak.
* Commenting on the frankness of the views presented, a Japa
ese student at Cornell felt that it was the duty of the foreign stud(
to be very frank and truthful in his-views. "To soften these opini(
would not be. helpful to the American students or, to ourselves,",

One of the reasons why Ger-

said, is because it sees in the

a restored Germany.
Prof. Alfred Kelly, chairman of

risk because Russia would agree'

an excellent opportunity for even-
