The strength of a democracy
lies in the extent to which its
people are educated and informed
about the. issues vital to the oper
ation of government. In those
lands where ignorance and super
stition are the prevailing influenc
es, government is usually primi
tive and atuocratic.
Realizing this, two and a half
years ago while on a state visit
to the United States, President
Celal Bayer of Turkey asked Pres
ident Eisenhower and foreign aid
director Harold Stassen for help
in modernizing his country's high
er educational system on the lines
of our own land grant college sys
tem. In answer to Bayar's plea, on
March 20. 1955, the University
signed a three-year contract with
the U.S. International Cooperation
Administration, providing for the
University to render technical ad

"The Ankara University program
has continued to develop quite sat
isfactorily. However, the Univer
sity of Ankara is a well-established
institution. It was organized
according to the pattern of Conti
nental universities. Consequently,
its College of Agriculture has not
had the close relationships with
rural life which we associate with
our own state agricultural col
leges and universities."
It is this close relationship
which the Turks seek. In a recent
interview, Chancellor Clifford Har
din, who had spent part of this
summer visiting the Turkish mis
sion, said "The Turks are tre
mendously interested in our land
grant system and what it has
done for our people. They want
to incorporate it into their new uni

Turkish professors have been re

Thirty nine professors from

Dr. Ali Aras:
Fourty Turkish Agriculture Professors
Discover Nebraska As 'Second Home'
By DON HERMAN
"May I help you?"
These words meant little to Dr.
Ali Aras as he got off his plane
in New York City eleven months
ago. In his stay here, he has
learned the full meaning of these
words through American friendli
ness to his people and his country.
The University is currently co
operating with the International
Cooperative Administration in a
program designed to acquaint for
eign university faculty members
with American methods of instruc
tion. Fourty Turkish professors from
the Agricultural University of An
kara are at present enrolled or
have completed their training at
the University College of Agricul
ture. According to Dr. Aras, agri
cultural education is extremely im
portant to Turkey since the popula
tion is eighty per cent agrarian
with ninety percent of the farms
fifty acres or less in size.
Dr. Aras, Assistant Professor
of Ag Economics has now been
in our country for over eleven
months. His impression of our peo
ple and university is such that
he is trying for a one year exten
tion of study.
Dr. Aras's viewpoint of econom
ics has been broadened by courses
in ag . economics, general eco
nomics, and ag statistics.
With Dr. Aras are his wife and
two young daughters. Mrs. Aras
is a specialist in poultry and bees
with the Ministry of Agriculture in
