Preparation for teaching abroad is similar to the four years of study needed here, according to Miss Jacobs and Asgarzadeh. According to Winzer, a student in Germany is paid by the government and receives a permanent certificate after three years of education. Winzer voiced the opinion of the group in saying that in all European states, academic work comes first. Extra-curricular activities are almost void. The impression the foreign students received when coming to Central was one of friendliness. They stated that they feel more at ease here than "over there." "To learn your language is of utmost importance to us," said Miss Jacobs. "We would tell this to other persons coming to the United States. Also being friendly and forgetting one's country is advisable." The foreign students decided that having a counselor for guidance, meeting with foreign students from other colleges, and having people listen to individual Procedure of Students' Book Sales to Cole's Campus Store Outlined Central has entered into a new agreement with Cole's Campus Store concerning the handling of both new and used text books. This agreement is designed to give students the opportunity to obtain new books at a minimum price and dispose of used books in a method in which they will realize the maximum amount of money for them. This adds up to a greater savings to students on the text books they are required to buy. That is the mutual aim of the College and Cole's Campus Store. 1. Cole's will sell new text books to students at four per cent less than list price. 2. Cole's will sell used books on a consignment basis, charging 10 per cent of the selling price as handling fee. Each student is to price his own books. The book department will give advice only when the student requests it. 3. Cole's will be fully responsible, except for fire, or other disaster, for the period of one year for all books priced on consignment. It is urged because of the storage problem, any unsold books be picked up by students one month after the selling period for the text books has ended. If a student fails to call for his unsold book for one year, it will become the property of Cole's Campus Store. 4. Books will be bought outright at 50 per cent of the last price the book sold for from students who wish to sell them ihis way, when in the judgment of the store management, such transaction is profitable. 5. Only books which will be used this summer and fall will be accepted for resale in June. Books that may be used next spring semester will be accepted for resale at the end of the fall semester. 6. Cole's will try to provide, whenever possible, an outside book buyer to buy books that will not be used as college texts again. 7. Payment for books sold on consignment will be made to students starting one month after the opening of each semester. Students must come ' to the store for their money or write requesting that it be sent to them. If students don't call for their money for a year after the book was left to be sold, the money will revert to Cole's Campus Store. problems would contribute in helping the foreign student become more easily adjusted. "Personnel and speech are important to foreign siudents for they give the students a chance io discuss so many things which increase one's growth and education," said Miss Jacobs. "I shall take back to my country the knowledge of understanding people and their friendship. I also want to take back the good student-teacher relationship," remarked Mr. Asgarzadeh. Students who attended the panel discussion learned many things about our foreign students, which help to promote a better understanding.

McKeefery Speaks at Honor Assembly for Outstanding Central Students Three guideposts are needed in the world today, stated Dr. William J. McKeefery, dean of Alma College, at the tenth annual Recognition Convocation Wednesday, May 20. These guideposts are a sense of curiosity or originality, a sense of humor, and a sense of dedication. "We meet with success or failure in life according to how inventive and original we are," said Dr. McKeefery in reference to his first guidepost. If we are to realize the best in life, we must follow a better, a creative way. "Humor is ihe prelude io faith; laughter is ihe beginning of prayer," stated Dr. McKeefery in support of ihe need for a sense of humor. "The worth of dedication is tremendous because it is one of the restorative forces of the world," Dr. McKeefery said. "It is needed more than anything else in the world today because it leaves a legacy for all those who follow after. But some people go through life never daring to put their full weight into the seat of a situation." Students who attained special distinction were honored at the convocation.
