Foreign Students Arrive From East
Many Had Waited Months At Cairo
Most of the newly arriving foreign students on campus are residents of the Near and Middle East, Dr. Essom M. Gale director of the International Center announced today.
While enrollment figures by nationality have not yet been compiled by the International Center, Dr. Gale disclosed that new students have enrolled from Palestine, Iraq, Syria, India, Egypt, Iran, Greece, Lebanon, in addition to several Latin American countries and El Salvador, Porto Rico and the Dominican Republic. No Increase Expected
There will be no material increase in the number of foreign students attending the University due to the housing crisis, Dr. Gale declared.
Those enrolling for the first time this term have been previously accepted for admission. No new admissions are being granted at the present time.
The influx of students from the Near and Middle East is indicative of the opening of the eastern Mediterranean air routes to the United States, Dr. Gale said.
He related that many of these students have been obliged to wait for months at Cairo, to secure transportation and that some of them were finally permitted to travel on crowded Liberty ships. Engineers Predominant
Most of the new students are enrolling in the engineering department, Dr. Gale pointed out, and one student, who is an authority on the papyrus of the Ptolemaic era, has enrolled here to study early Egyptian history with Dr. Arthur E. R. Boak.
The International Center is arranging a series of activities to acquaint foreign students with this Tarea before classes begin. A group of 30 left by chartered bus for Toledo today to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, and subsequent visits are being arranged to Bloomfield Hills, Greenfield Village and Detroit.
The spring semester greeting for newly arrived foreign students will | be held on Sunday evening, March 10, at the International Center,
