Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Jd THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Wodncsday, May 31, 1972 international tmo 01 s lij M.MIMAK niOKSII.UV HrvaUl Stall Writer Three umn.n nii'n may cam-' pleie a short slay in Canada ;iiid return home as miofficial goodwill ambassadors of the country, and in ihc meantime are certainly proving wortliy ambassadors for their own nmntrics. Melchor Ilinojosa of Mexico ''very impressed" wilh his first view of Canada, the ethers, Ali Elhouderi of Libya and Quirino Swensson of Bra- ril. expressed similar feelings. The three are pursuing post- graduate studies al Ihe Uni- versity of Dallas, Texas, in business adininislralion, spe- cialising in international man- agement. They are in southern Alberta as part of an extensive project compulsory lo f'.eir 1 course, and are in the middle oi a two week stay here mak- j'' inii a study of irrigation. "Tiiu study must lie made outside of the United States, and south Alberta and Saskat- chewan were thought lo be Ihe most logical area for study, being one of the most import- ant agricultural districts and p. place where we could make a study of the evolution and methods of irrigation first- .Mi said. The University ol Dallas, a small university serving less than students, is ''not aca- demically oriented, it is more a school oriented to close actual study." Melchor, an e c o n o mics major, and Qui, a civil engin- eer, are both attending the school on scholarships, and Ali is putting himself through. He has a degree in economics and political science from the Uni- versity of Alexandria, Egypt. Melchor and Qui received Iheir previous education in Monterey, Mexico and Sao Paulo, Brazil COMING JUNE 10 LEB. Ali found Ihal Ihe school he attended in Egypt was "quite I Minilar" lo I ho University of Pallas, bul Ihe similarity wa.s; limited because of Hie differ- cnce in size. "The studeuls in Ihc Stales arc both graduates and undcrgrads, while in Alexan- dria there were more than iu economies alone. "The curriculum is much Ihc same, but in Egypt you study all year for one final examination, which determines your pass or failing mark. The American method is more con- venient, you never stop work- j ing. Library use is much more common here loo. "There is a difference in the way students look at things loo. In Egypt (hey follow the classical system where what is taught is accepted on faith. American students question more, and attempt lo rational- ize." Qui felt that students al Ihc Dallas university "get toget- her" more easily than al the Brazilian school he had attend-1 ed. He said this was probably due lo lac [act Ihal American j universities allow studenls to follow a general course before choosing a major, and students mcl easily because they shared courses. Qui had allended a school he referred to as the "Napoleonic in wlu'ch a sludent followed a single, continuous course, to completion, and was j nol much exposed lo students outside his own field of study. Melchor said Mexican schools were similar to American uni- versities, in facilities, courses, educational level, number of faculty members and Ihc man- ner of teaching. The one big difference was the number of women pursuing academic degrees, which was a substantial figure in the U.S., but had been less than 10 per cent in Mexico six years ago. "The trend is reversing j though, there is probably about 20 per cent women students he said. "A big difference between Libya and here is the cost of fril'.ir.'iliini." said Ali. "In Libya, all education is [ret and all students sponsored by Ihe gov- ernment up until I'bl' .'-Indies. They are supplied wilh books, doliies. meals and a salary." Melchor commented that "A lot. about 35 per cent, of gov- ernment moi'.cy goes towards education in Mexico. They arc reallv Irving lo improve the educational status of Ihc peo- ple." Qui said that Ihc same feelings cxislcd in Brazil. All Ihrcc plan lo relurn lo their own countries. Ali plans (o complete his PhD studies in San Francisco first. The others must spend five monlhs work- injr in a foreign coimlry as a rcouircment of their education. Both plan on spending it in Europe, wilh Melchor favoring France and Belgium. How do I hey feel aboul Can- ada as one of the countries Ihey have visited? "T admire Ihe people 1 have met so far very much." said Mo'ichor. "They have been vc.vy kind and helpful, very open people." Qui found it "a nice surprise. We were lold lo expect a cold, foreign, rather unfriendly coun- lry. It's been just the opposite. The people have such a have only known (hem five days and H seems like monlhs or years. It is differenl in Ihe Stales. So few miles make so much dif- ference in the people." Ali said. "Canadians make us feel very much at home. They are very loyal to Ihcir country and want to leave a good impression with foreign visitors.

"We spend more than wa we should talking to people, we really have no spare time, fiut even though we feel we can't afford the time, we don't feel we should miss what wa ,ire learning by meeting peo- ple, either." "Usually when we're talking lo people about irrigation, they [ind out where we are Irom and we arc the ones who end i up answering questions. They are always so friendly and in- terested." The three have spoken Eng- lish for about two years, and all speak fluently. "You are forced to be fluent or there's no i chance of they agreed. They are doing extensive in- terviewing and district travel while in the city. They are making their own contacts with anyone involved in any way with irrigation, and have spok- en to dealers and equipment suppliers. Qui is especially in- terested in dams and canal construction. "As well as being necessary for our project, we are finding this visit a good chance to get lo kuow said Ali.
