Dr. E. F. Frolik, chairman of
the agronomy department, and
George S. 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
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
