Detroit Begins New TV Experiment

More than 70 new international
students got their first taste of
the University at the Internation-
al Center's orientation camp this
fall.
The outing, held at a YMCA
camp about 35 miles from Ann
Arbor, was designed to give for-'
eign students an introduction to
the University and to UniversityJ
life, according to William West, of
the International Center.
"When you have just arrived
and don't-know anybody, it's nice
to be where you can meet people,"
Mimica Janez, Grad., of Yugosla-
via commented.
Interspersed in the formal pro-
gram vere" group dancing, games

and acts by representatives of for-
eign countries.
The whole program was very
successful, West said.
The counselors included Ameri-
can students and international
students who had been here be-
fore.
"The number 'of friendships
that were struck up in such a
short length of time was aston-
ishing," West said.
Henry de Suremain, Grad. from
France, commented, "when you
are, alone in a foreign country,
you have only your own experi-
enfees, but when you are in a
group, you share all the experi-
ences of the group.

A $200,000 experiment in educa-
tional television on a pre-college
level has begun in the Detroit
Public Schools.
One of the outstanding charac-
teristics of the experiment will be'
the television teaching of foreign
languages to elementary school
children.
Detroit Superintendent of
Schools Samuel Brownell indicated
M

in a recent speech at the Univer-
sity that TV instruction will sup-
plement work now being carried
out in the regular classrooms.
Brownell has been one of the
nation's leading proponents of
teaching foreign languages to
American school children.
"In Detroit," he said, "we are
experimenting with teaching a for-
eign idiom to children six through

ten years old. It is both exciting
and challenging; exciting in the
evidence of interest and achieve-
ment, challenging in the needs we
face to make such learning in-
creasingly effective and meaning-
ful."
Brownell pointed to the 'great
speed of travel, the "new national-
ism" in many countries, and the
great numbers of Americans living
and traveling abroad as reasons
for encouraging, among Ameri-
cans, the ability to speak and un-
derstand others.

Extension courses 'in
literature, fine arts, geo
history, mathematics, psy
and speech are oeing off
the University this fa]
Charles A. Fisher, super
the classwork, announced.
,Each of the courses r
elected for two hours of
graduate extension credit.
