Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD k A, ft A 'A A A v v 'v-.- -w s-. 8'IST YEAR, NO. 234 ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 6, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS GOP Governor's The American Field Service Is a private, non-profit organ- ization formed in 1915 as a vol- unteer ambulance corps, It served with allied forces in world wars, (hen in 1947 look on a new educational [im- pose, "the furthering of under- standing and good will among the peoples of Ihc world." This purpose it carries out by bring- ing teen-agers to (he U.S. (o spend a year in school ami by sending American young folk abroad for either a summer or a school session. Abilene is acquainted willi half (his program. The first exchange slmlent through AFS, Annamarie lAicke of t''inspHiig, Sweden, spent last school year in Abilene High. This year Exchangers No. 2 and No. 3 arc with rus, Clauclio Meyer of Sao Paulo' Brazil, in AHS and Noriko Kakcstuta of Tokyo, Japan, in Cooper High. Claudia lives with (hc-Dr. Arthur family and Noriko with (he Chester lines family. The exchange program is sponsored by the local AKS chanter headed by Mrs. Kiley Maxwell. Others on the AFS hoard here are Mrs. George Krvin, Mrs, S. C. Herring Jr., Rev. Norman Conner, Bub Tif- fany, George Minlcr and Mal- colm Anthony and Mrs. C. G. Bradford of Cooper and Escoe Webb ami Mrs. Kathleen Par- ker of AHS. Student Councils pick up most of Ihc checks, the JfiSQ yearly fee to AFS for transportation and other exchange expenses, some local help. Exchangers live in the- chosen homes without charge. Assistance is based on need. It's quite an adventure these visiting teen-agers are having. Noriko had a pre-inti eduction to Abilene. Mrs. Maxwell was iti (he Far East last summer and met her and her family. Claudio came in a rank stranger. "I looked out from the air- plane and saw all the people, the 'Welcome' banner at Hie airport and I thought, 'Someone important is on this and it was all for me." lie re- calls. The youngsters, carefully screened before they were cho- sen, have adapted quickly lo new ways and new people. In dress and very nearly in talk they are now West Texans. So far the AFS program lo- cally is a one-way deal. But mil for long, we suspect. An Amer- ican school has participate a year as "host" before it can nimiimile one of ils students lo be an "American abroad." Hul AHS is now so qualified and Cooper soon will be. Mrs. Maxwell says Ihc local chapter will meet Iwturc long to figure out ground rules on applying to make the "ex- change" compline. Ttie American child goes in his junior year (incoming ex- changers are seniors) and must be IB. healthy, possessed of an adventuresome spirit, good per- sonality and, of course, pa- rental approval of Ilie idea.
