Round, director of public relations, recently re turned from a three week visit to Turkey, report that the , Uni versity has ben asked to assist the Turkish government and the U. S. Foreign Operations Admin istration in establishing a new Ataturk University in eastern Turkey. Frolik and Round said that Turkey desires not only to es tablish a new agricultural col lege but also three other col leges in veterinary science, arts and engineering in scattered portions of eastern Turkey. Tur key's President Bayer is among the supporters of the higher edu cation project and Parliament has already appropriated funds for construction of buildings at four proposed sites. FROLIK AND Round met with top Turkish officials and the Ataturk University execu tive committee as well as the Faculties of Agriculture and Veterinary Science at Ankara University during their stay in Ankara. They found enthusiasm and great support for the found- Terrrca arrer mrexna-u;rant College System in this country. The Turks desire to get away from the classical type of higher education now ottered at the three universities in Turkeyv - The report of Frolik and Round would call for a trip to the United States by top Turkish officials in order to acquaint them further with the Land Grant College system. Also, the University would organize a study group to go to Turkey for a six week to two month in tensive study of proposed plans and to then suggest modifica tions of present plans. THE THIRD proposed phase would consist of an exchange of professors between Ankara Uni versity and the University of Ne braska to train staff members for the agricultural faculty of Ataturk University. The report is being submitted to Dean Lambert and Chancellor Hardin for consideration and probably then will be submitted to the Board of Regents for action.
