So servicemen, and students, nev-
er let it be said that there's nothing
to do in Ann Arbor; there is.

Soldier From
Morocco Tells
Of Experiences
Tribes Are Becoming
Unified, He Declares;
Likes American Spirit
"Casablanca isn't like it was in the
movies!" Pvt. Jacques Elmalch of
Company C, a native of French Mor-
occo said laughinglyyesterday in an
interview, in fact, it's considerably
different."
"The American section is com-
pletely modern, with American
dress, customs and entertainment
prevalent, but the French section
is totally different," he said.
"This section has three separate
races, the Arabians, the Jewish and
the French," he explained.
Relationships Are Improving
Staff Sergeant Victor Farah, a stu-
dent of Arabic culture and linguistic
research, said, "There has been much
misunderstanding about the position
of the Arabic peoples, but their rela-
tionships with the rest of the world
are gradually becoming straightened
out.
"One of the most important facts
about the Arabs is that they are
preservers, if not the originators,
of the Greek culture.
"At the present time the Vatican
has a special staff that is translating
the Arabic transcriptions of Aristotle
and other Greek masters into the'
original Greek," he said.
Tribes Becoming Unified
Although the Arabs in French
North Africa are still living in the
same political system as in medieval
days, the various chieftain tribes are
gradually becoming unified under the
King, Pvt. Elmalch said.
"I first came to the States three
years ago," Pvt. Elmalch said, "and
liked it so well, I decided to stay. I
received my citizenship through
the Army.
"What is it I like about the Ameri-
cans?" he mused. "Well, I guess it's
because I love the frank American
spirit. The people in French Mor-
occo are very democratic, but they
are more emotional and not down-
to-earth as the Americans are.
U.S. Art Facilities Complete
"Moreover, your art and music fa-
cilities are much more complete than
in French Morocco. I used to send
to New York for symphonies and
then wait two months for them. By
that time, I wanted something else,"
he said.
Speaking of his first football
game which he played just two
days ago, he said, "I told them I
could pass-but I found out the
hard way that throwing a football
is a little different than throwing
other balls! Back home we played
rugby almost exclusively."
"The week before I left French
Morocco aFrench minesweeper with
120 mines blew up in the harbor," he
said, "and the concussion broke all
windows and glass in the city and
was felt more than 60 miles away.
"But that's the closest I came to
having excitement onsthe trip over,"o
he laughed.
Yanks Get All The Dates
"I received a letter from my cousin
in Casablanca last week, and it seems
that the men there are a little peeved
with the American soldiers. They've
started dating all the French and
Jewish women there, and I guess my
poor cousin is left out in the cold.
"However, they don't date the
Arab girls, for that would cause a
lot of trouble. But we feel that the
culture and habits of the Ameri-
cans will be assimilated with the
Arabic culture eventually. We can
learn a lot from each other," he
said, "but the process will be slow."t
Another serviceman who is inter-7
ested in Arabic culture and language
is Pvt. Barnett Mitzman, of Newark,

N.J.
"I first took Arabic for the fun of
it when I was attending 'the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania," he said,
"and it interested me so much I
started to study it seriously."

SKIRLING TUINEuS:
Scotch IRIaptpers Now Play
As Co* -A.Marche's to Clas

Classes begin tomorrow for more
than 1100 men in the Army Special-
ized Training Program's language
area and engineering units here.
Schedules for all men in these
units consist of 24-27 hours of
classes per week, five hours of
drill and three PEM periods.
The Language Area program is
composed of more than 250 men
who are quartered in Fletcher Hall
and fraternity houses.
These men are to study virtually
every modern European language
in preparation for the Army of Oc-
cupation. All men selected for these
courses already have a speaking
knowledge of the language they are
to study, and have an advanced
classification in the ASTP.
A large number of the men in this
group have spent considerable time
abroad in the countries whose lan-
guages they will study.
The remaining men in the ASTP
will study various engineering cours-
es, both basic and advanced.
Both groups of men were admit-
ted to the ASTP on the basis of ex-
aminations in their respective
fields. All the courses to be studied
will be given by University profes-
sors.
The fraternity houses which have
been taken over by the Army 'to
house these men are Sigma Chi, Al-
NROTCIssued
Spec ial 'Whites'
Two different versions of Navy
"whites" have been confusing the
campus as to the exact status of the
occupants of these types of sailor
uniforms.
Blue edged sailor caps and the
printed lettering "U.S. Navy ROTC"
across the front of the uniforms
means that that cadet is a member
of the NROTC. A white cap and a
shirt untrimmed by the stamped
lettering signifies any V-12 blue-I
jacket who is not in the ROTC.
Marines are not yet in uniform.
The absence of blue ties by a con-
siderable portion of the V-12 train-
ees is merely because sufficient ties
to go around have -not yet been re-
ceived by the men.
