Four Japanese Students
In '60 Maes-Per-Gallon'
By Sue Hovik
"How many miles to the
gallon do you get?"
You probably dont think
that this 'is one of the first
questions you would ask a
foreign visitor, but four Ja
panese students touring the
United States find that this is
a frequent question from
Driving a Japanese "Maz
da", they are able to answer
that question with an amaz
ing "60 miles to the gallon."
These visitors believed that
this question shows that
"American folks are sick
with the expense of gas."
Yusuke Ishizu, 24; Kensuke
Inukai, 22; Hajime Hasega
wa, 21; and Kiyoshi Miyata,
20 are all journalism stu
dents from Sophia University,
Tokyo, Japan.
Four Chosen
From applications, different
companies chose to sponsor
these four students to visit
in the United States. They ex
plained the reasons they ap
plied were that they like to
travel in foreign countries,
they could make the trip
worthwhile since they are in
journalism and better under
stand activities here, they
want to promote better 'un
derstanding between the two
countries, and they wish to
tell the truth. If they dont
have an academic purpose in
mind when they apply for the
trip they will not be accepted.
Although they all under
stood English, Hasegawa
acted as spokesman for the
group. He reported that there
are many differences between
the journalistic methods of
the two countries.
In Japan they have four
national papers which cover
all of the islands. One of
their bjectivei in the trip
was to examine local United
States papers. Japan doesn't
have anything on this order

ber. Chose The U.S.
These Japanese students
chose the United States to
tour because Ihey "know that
it is formost in journalistic
activities and in journalism
research." They hope the tra
vel abroad win deepen their
understanding and broaden
their perspective in order
that they may contribute to
a peaceful world order.
The purpose of the trip is
four-fold: to observe the ma
jor activities and programs of
journalism departments of
American universities, to
study the function of the local
newspaper, to learn from per
sonal contact with American
students what we are think
ing about problems facing
American and the world so
they might strengthen the
mutual understanding between
the two countries, and to visit
some of their sister colleges
and universities which are
conducted by Jesuit Fathers.
Hasegawa said he n d e r
stood English a little bit la
Japan, but the people in the
United States are destroying
it with slang. This gave him
a little trouble when they first
arrived in the United States.

NU Flying Club Adds New Plane to Roster
By Mike MacLeaa
The University Flying Club boasts a brand new 1961
Piper Colt, according to Neal Thomssen, president The
Colt is an ultra-modern two passenger Irainer in its first
year of production.
The club also owns and maintains exclusively for its
members a Piper Trt-Pacer, a four passenger long dis
tance aircraft
The Flying Club, which has flown 10,000 hours without
a personal-injury accident, currently has 32 active mem
bers and 250 lifetime members.
The club members are quick to take advantage of the
convenient mobUity offered by their aircraft Last spring
they used their two airplanes and rented another and 12
of the members flew to Kansas City and toured the Air
Traffic Control center at the Municipal Airport there.
Fly to Wichita
This fan there are plans for a similar trip to Wichita
to tour the Boeing Aircraft and MissHe plant
"Through constant maintenance and an eye toward
more and newer equipment we strive to make it possible
for as many University students and faculty members to
fly as cheaply as possible," explained Thomssen.
Government-rated instructors give lessons to members
who have not had any previous experience. It takes ap
proximately 40 hours of flying time, consisting of 20 hours
of instruction and 20 hours of solo to qualify for a Hcense.
In addition the student must also take a written exam.
AU lessons are scheduled at the student's convenience.
Anyone Can Join
"Anyone interested in joining the club is invited to at
tend our first meeting of the year, which win be held at
Union Airport, 7:30 p.m., Thursday," said Thompssen.
Thompssen points out that many University students
who have learned to fly in the club have made aviation
their career. He added that the club planes are a pleasure
and a convenience whether they are used for a trip home,
to a football game, or for a personal business trip to a
distant city.

the American young people
lack dignity. For instance in
Japan, you can't find any
couples who wane in town
hand in hand.
Cost Of living
An four students noticed
that the cost of living was
much higher than theirs, but
they also recognized that the
people were "anxious" about
the income to run a borne
and taxes.
One student said that since
TSey Tiegan traveling, they
realized that there still exists
the "people that we see in
Western movies in Japan. We
are very impressed.'

different from any of their
larger cities, but they found

On the question of the
American food, there was a
difference of opinion, they an
agreed that the meals were
cheap for the quantity re
ceived, but only one of them
thought they tasted good-
Hasegawa reported that un
fortunately their Impression
of the American people was
not favorable, but said, "well
try." There wasn't any dif
ference in the life of the
United States as to what they
thought it would be like, al
though many of the Japanese
have the impression that the
United States is a rich and
prosperous country. They re
ceive this from the movies
and TV.

Japanese students win be

Three mockup roms for the
proposed new dorm were fin
ished late last week, accord
ing to Verner Meyers, Univer
sity director of the division of
planning and construction.
The bdlding, which is now
in the planning stage, win re
quire approval by the Univer
sity Board of Regents before
any final arrangements can
be made. Plans now call for
the dorm to be primarily used
by women, but it win be sec
tionalized and could be used
as coed living quarters.
The three mockup rooms,
located on the third floor of
Nebraska Han, are an experi
ment in aa attempt to have
everyone see what s going en.
Meyers said. Interested sta
dents and faculty members
may view the mocknps.
Each room differs from the
other in size, shape and ar
rangement of furniture. The
rooms are arranged so that
each individual win have, the
oretically, one-half room to
Although the sizes of the
proposed rooms vary by just
a few feet, the arrangement
of the furnishings makes qaite
bit of difference in the
available space, Meyers said.
He added that he beUeves
money can be saved by build
ing the mockups. Plans are
first made on paper and then
an inexpensive model of the
rooms are made. By doing
this fewer mistakes are
made. Often times plans on
paper cannot be correctly in
terpreted. "We think that a mockup
study of any University un
dertaking it a good way to
handle construction," Meyers
The model rooms were buflt
near the waU in Nebraska
Han so the space between the
rooms and the wan would be
the same as the corridor in
the completed buflding. By
doing this a sense of relative
space is gained. The model
rooms were built side-by-side
for the actual effect
In addition to experimenta
tion of space, Meyers said he
is also working with color and
lighting and ventilation in the
In two of the rooms the
closets are on the exterior
wan and would cause the
bmlding to have an irregular
design when viewed from the
The third room is similar
to those used at the Univer
sity of Washington ia Seattle,
Meyers said. This room,
which is 197 square feet, gives
the appearance of being
crowded because of the ar
rangemerL An the rooms have bunt-in
desks and shelves for books
and a medicine chest The
bmlt-in desks caused some
comment from several stu
dents viewing the model
rooms. The boys in particular
said they often move their
desks to give a different fur
niture combination.
Meyers said at the present
time the beds were not de
signed to be stationary and
could be bunked for addition
al space.
These three rooms are not
necessarily the final blue
prints which wOl be used ia
bunding the new dorm. Mey
ers said that further rooms
win probably be bunt to give
the planners and the students
a better idea of what is best
for the University.

ious sections have opened
