Foreign Dating Customs Make Romance Rouah
By uretchen Grondahl
Communism and boy-girl rela
tionships seemed to be the subjects
in which most students and towns
people are insterested, judging from
questions asked the three foreign
students just returned from a
speaking tour of Eastern Oregon.
L. John Martin, Chung-Wu Lin,
and Manucher Goodarzi, graduate
students at the University, return
ed Friday from a trip to the high
country during which they spoke
to high schools, women’s clubs, ser
vice clubs, and a chamber of com

ton-Freewater, and The Dalles. At
each appearance the three students
spoke for ten minutes each, and

then answered questions tossed
their way by the listners.
“I have-twenty unfilled requests
for prog-rams similar to the one
presented in Eastern Oregon,”
says Dr. Schleicher. Ke invites
any foreign students who would
be interested in participating in
such a program to see him.
“In certain countries Communism
is accepted,” Martin said before the
Baker Chamber of Commerce. “In
Hungary, for instance, the people
run their own government pretty
well; but it is resented in Czechoslo
vakia where the Russians have fil
led all the government posts.”
Chung-Wu Lin, who came to the
U. S. last October from Formosa,
is a native of China. “I don't believe
that there will ever be a completely
communistic government in China,”
he said. “There will be a coalition
government which will be the most
democratic we have ever had.”
Questions on dating customs were
fired at all three speakers. Goodar
zi, a native of Iran, was asked whe
ther women in that country have
any actual freedom.
‘'Customs in Iran are the same,
really; the women have their clubs
and newspapers," Goodarzi replied.
One does not take a girl out alone
unless one is engaged to her; boys
and girls must meet in groups or in
"Marriage is agreed upon between
the boy and the girl; however, the
parents make the actual proposal."
Martin, who now calls England
his home but has lived in Hungary.
Austria, Palestine, Egypt, and Iraq,
told audiences of English dating
customs. — #
"In England a boy wouldn’t tell a
birl he loved her even if he did. In
the Middle East a boy and girl can
not walk alone in the streets, and
never hold hands under any circum
In China’s big cities, according to
| Chung-Wu, customs are much the
same as those in America..
“A boy dresses in his Sunday best
and takes his girl to the movies or
to a dance,” he said. "High school
boys, however, are not allowed on
the dance floor. There is just ono
difficulty: If you pay a visit to tho
same girl too often, her parents ex
pect you to marry her.”
“Conditions are more restricted in
the interior, he added.
Summing up the whole trip, Mar
tin commented: High school stud
ents showed a far greater interest
in economic and political problems
outside the United States than I
had expected.
“We saw a variety of scenery —
more snow than either Chung-Wi
or I had ever seen. The entire exper
ience was tiring—but fun.”
The three students were accom
panied by Dr. Schliecher, executive
secretary of the International Rela
tions Committee of the Oregon
Education Association; Dean John
