Argentinian, Carlos Pesado, Likes Oregon 'Fine'
Tells Travel, Differences Of Schools And People
Carlos Pesado lives in a second
floor room at the western end of

his bed is a blanket with a lemon
colored “O” in the middle; out in
Oregon atmosphere, Carlos is
thinking of the town of San Juan
in western Argentina. It was only
last June that he boarded a plane

We think and talk about the same
things. In comparing the friends
I have here with the friends I have

difference. Of course, things like
the climate and the kind of food
differ, but it isn’t hard to adjust
Carlos came to Oregon because
of the influence of a Webfoot
friend—“and I like it fine.” He is
majoring in business administra
tion at the present time, although
his chief interest is learning the
English language. At the end of
the 1948-49 year he will go to
Michigan to continue his education.
Back at San Juan, Carlos was a
chemistry major. “College is run

Another interesting practice in
Argentine colleges is the students
are in no way compelled to attend
classes. A student may stay away
all year with no damage to his
grades—supposing, of course, that
he keeps up on the reading and
passes that crucial July test.
