Students From Distant Lands

By BETTY KOFFMAN
Ang Colegiala, Nu T'ung Hsieh,
and estudiantas all gathered under

That, in a glance, represents the
beautiful visitors from five different
foreign countries who are Univer-
sity students staying at Betsy Bar-
bour and giving it the atmosphere of
an international house. It is true
that there probably are foreign stu-
dents in every dormitory on campus,
but Betsy Barbour considers itself
especially fortunate in having a good
proportion of its residents from far-
Central America's contribution is
Gracilla Aquirre, a bacteriologist
from Guatemala City. She gradu-
ated as a teacher from the Instituto
Nacional de Senoritas, ands after
working a short time in public
health, took an examination for a
scholarship offered by the United
States Public I ealth Service. This
provides for one year's training here,
with the last semester at Lansing.
After completing her studies, she in-
tends to return to Guatemala and
assist teaching in a nurses' school.
From the important oil center of
Maracaibo, Venezuela, comes Gloria
Bracho, a student of pharmacy.
Gloria made the thrilling trip by
clipper to Miami and then attended
Maryland College for Women before
she was attracted to Ann Arbor be-
cause of its large group of Latin
American students. She hopes to be
able to set up her own laboratory
when she goes back home.
Another representative ; of South
America is Carmen Andraca, a grad-
uate in library science. At Lima,
Peru, she was the librarian at the
College of Engineering and she holds
a scholarship from the American Li-
brary Association. The past week
she has been attending meetings of
the Association in Chicago and Mil-
By a strange coincidence, two of
the girls are here on Barbour Schol-
arships for Oriental Women-both
their home and their scholarships
are named after the same man.
One of these Barbour scholars is
Rafaelita Hilario, whose home is
stormy Manila. She holds several
degrees from the University of the
Philippines and is at present work-
ing for a Ph.D in political science.
Before coming here she was dean of
the College of Liberal Arts in San
The other Barbour scholar is Al-
vina Te-Mei Tsen of Shanghai. She
took her master's degree at the Uni-
versity of California and is now
working in medicine. Her special
interest is in public health and she
hopes to go to her ancestral province
of Kwang-Hsi in China to organize
the women there in that work.
