COKJE MACHINE For those who don't take long enough breaks
from their studies, the coke machine is a popular location. The
machine coke is only a nickel, too.
It is not very often that stu
dents stop to realize that there
are over 3,000 students partici
pating in the exchange program
both here and overseas. To be
exact, there are 3,344 of these
This program, indeed, has made
a spectacular growth in the past
year, vcording to Kenneth Hol
land, president of the Institute
of International Education, there
has been an increase of 1,000 per
sons taking part in this ex
change, since 1949.
This institute is a central pri
vate agency in the United States
dealing with a two-way exchange
of students, teachers, and special
ists between the United States
and foreign countries.
The range of people taking part
in these exchange programs, says
Mr. Holland, is wide and colorful,
Technicians from Korea are here
for practical mechanical training,
At the same time, there are
Americans abroad in teaching
posts at French secondary schools
and universities. Some of them
are in British summer schools.
while others are in Bavaria on
the first scholarships offered by
the new German government.
Finns have come here on funds
made available by Congressional
action on the Finnish war debt.
Great Britain has sent engineers
to the United States for advanced
study and industrial experience
aimed at increasing British pro
ductivity. Fulbright Act Aids
Then, too, the Fulbright Act
has made it possible for Amer
ican graduate students to study
abroad in 18 countries. In return,
Europe has sent some of her
prominent lecturers on extended
speaking tours in the United
States. On top of that, 500 Ger
man students and teachers have
come for a year of acquaintance
with American institutions and
way of life.
Britain and the United States
also have been exchanging de
bating talent. The Oxford de
bating team has visited 26 Amer
ican universities arguing subjects
such as "The British Empire Is
Decadent." In turn, an American
debating team in England has
taken the negative on "Nation
alization of Basic Industries."
Also, Japanese leaders have
made two or three month obser
vation tours to see American de
mocracy at work. They visited
the polls, the courts, industry, the
church and the home.
People have come to this coun
try from 66 places on the globe,
There are 2,601 of them in all,
the greatest numbers coming
from Germany, Japan, Austria
and i ranee.
A total of 743 Americans are
studying abroad. There are 577
of these who are on Fulbright
government scholarships. Most of
tnem have been studying in
France, the United Kingdom and
The U. S. government expan
sion of government programs has
piayea a major role in the sud
den increase of educational ex
changes. This factor has brought
Germans, Austrians and Japanese
to this country.
Because of a rapidly growing
interest on the part of African
students in studying at U.S. col
leges, the Institute established an
African division last year. On the
other hand, 'the programs for
Latin America have diminished
considerably. The report lists no
students from Czechoslovakia and
Hungary for the first time in
many years. !
In the years to come, the maior
jod oi tne Institute will be to em
phasize the problem of leadership
in the free nations and those that
have been recently established.
The institute is qualified in this
respect to play an important role
in supplying the specific needs of
certain countries in the form of
trained leadership. It includes
such fields as industry, labor,
agriculture, religion, law, jour
nalism, youth activities and pub

At Age Experimental Meet
Missouri Basin Program Topic
A stepped-up agricultural re
search program is needed to get
facts necessary for guiding the
orderly development of the Mis
souri Basin agricultural program.
Dr. W. V. Lambert said Thurs
The University college of ag
riculture dean addressed the
opening session of the agricul
tural experiment station work
ers' annual conference on the
Lincoln campus. Experiment sta
tion personnel are here for the
Scottsbluff, Alliance, North Platte
and Valentine substations and the
Fort Robinson cattle research sta
tion for a two-day meeting.
Dean Lambert Speaks
Dean Lambert outlined re
search imder way and accom
plishments of the experiment sta
tions. He pointed out, however,
many areas where new facts are
needed to help farmers with per
plexing problems. Under emerg
ency conditions, he said, the solv
ing of many of the problems be
comes more urgent.
Dean Lambert said that im
proved strains of grasses and le
gumes need to be developed, al
though considerable progress has
been made in that direction. He
pointed to the development of
new varieties of bromegrass by
me university recently.
Soil Conservation Expert
Fred Hamilton, soil conversa
tion service research engineer at
the University, outlined the in
vestigation accomplishments and
problems connected with irriga
tion which is accompanying Mis
souri Basin development before
University research workers.
Gladwin Young, of the U. S.
Department of - Agriculture and
author of the Young Plan for
Missouri Basin development,
spoke on the importance of that
program to agriculture.

By George Wilcox
This morning I journied to
Hwasun gun, Hwasun Coal
Mines, in the past few months,
the main sore spot in current
riot affairs of Challa Namdo
province. This trip was official
business for a change, since
observed as a representative of
the Commerce and Industry sec
tion of American Military Gov
ernment the annual Hwasun
One year and one month an
nually, the Hwasun mines hold
this festival in commemoration
of lal miners who died in the
line of duty working in the
mines. This memorial day is to
the Korean miners of Hwasun
the same as it is to the Ameri
cans of the United States when
on May 31, Memorial Day, all
Americans honor the dead.
Our party arrived late and
assembled before a pine bough
altar bum at the step of a tow
ering mountain where the min
ers of Hwasun stood in precise
rank formation, ill-clad, covered
with coal dust and shivering
from the brisk January cold.
The altar was covered with sac
rifices dear to the Korean.
Cakes, apples, pears, chunks of
beef, cups of saki and other
Korean assorted foods. In front
of these delicacies was a char
coal blazier emitting a faint
Oriental incense aroma.
Behind the altar was the
sacred "mount" and steps of
granite were cut into the sides.
On four directions to the top
where high above the mines and
village so goes the legend,
dwell the spirits of the killed
miners observing all living life
The religious ceremonies were
brief and mysterious m true
sense. Conducted in Buddhist
fashion (Buddhism is the num
ber one religion of Korea) rice
husks dipped in holy oil were
occasionally dipped into the in
cense blazier which flared . and
smoked to the chant of the
Buddhist priest and the prayers
of the multitude.
After the ceremonies, Chu, the
Korean chief. Bureau of Domes
tic Commerce gave a short talk
followed by the provincial police
chief who spoke on the recent
riots of the Hwasun miners and
who now were working in peace
with AMG and increasing pro
duction over past totals. He
mentioned the sad state of the
policemen who must enforce law
and order and yet sympathize
with his native countrymen.
Following the provincial police
chief's talk the festival re
journed with mine officials and
our party to the Hwasun mine
main office where a typical Ko
rean dinner was offered. What
a feast! And to top the climax,
no knife, fork or spoon! If a
westerner was at anytime more
embarrassed than your truly, it
was yours truly!
Out of desperation. I was ini
tiated into the simple habit of
using chopsticks which slipped
the food and a number of duties
the chopsticks should have per
formed but didn't!
The menu was typical Korean
with fish, rice, eggs, apples,
pork and beef meat and saki
all prepared in native fashion.
Little chunks of beef delicately
chopped up and fried with fat
was the favorite dish for me in
the many concoctions offered,
while the native Koreans seemed
to favor fish skin (cooked hard)
intestines, livers, and small par
ticles of meat with pepper sauce.
Soup was served in nativa
fashion in the middle course of
Then 'Bottoms Up'
The Korean custom of passing
the saki cup is quite an unusual
custom and usually can lead to a
good hangover. First of all, the
host gives his saki cup to you
which you immediately drink
"bottoms up." and hand back to
your host who in turn drinks
out of the same cup "bottoms
up." Then the next host hands
you his cup to drink a toast, and
the next, and the next until your
head is quite dizzy.
The passing of the cups is an
old Korean custom hundreds of
years old, so you can hardly quit
drinking without offending your
