local Exchange Student Adjusts Well To Algona Bora Pervaine For Bora Pervaine, Algona high school senior, March 18 was an Important holiday. It was the Moslem Eid-al-Filr, the four day feast marking the end of the 30 day fast of Ramadan. Bora hat observed Ramadan, in which no . food or water can be taken from sunrise to sunset, all of the 17 years of his, life, but this year was the first he did it on his own far from other Moslems. Bora is an exchange student from Eskishir, Turkey. He is sponsored by the American Field service, local chapter, and while in Algona lives at the home ot Dr. and Mrs M. G. Bourne. The Bourne son, Bill is also 17 and a senior. According to Bora, he likes very much both his American home and school. The Bournes also say they like very much their temporary son and brother. They enjoy Bora's sense of humor and admire him , for his strict observance of the disciplines of his religion. Outside of Ramadan, he eats pretty much the same food as the Bournes do with one exception — Moslems eat no pork in any form. The fast of Ramadan was really not so difficult this year, says this displaced Moslem. "You arc- supposed to be cheerful about it and smile. However, there was a while when I hadn't heard from my parents for a long time, and I didn't smile quite so wide as I usually do." Members of the school's art club bring a sack lunch to some of their noon meetings. On one occasion one of the boys was called away before he had eaten. Everybody thought it would bu a good idea to swipe 'his'lunch, so Bora did so. He 'suid, "But the joke was on me. What was the lunch? A great, big ham sandwich!" Last July, Bora knew that he would be an exchange student, but it was only three or four days before he left that he learned it was to be in Algona, Iowa. On the plane coming over, he saw another exchange sludeta from Pakistan, bound for Pennsylvania. He looked familiar to Bora. It turned out the young men had been pen pals for years, had exchanged pictures but had never met. Neither knew the other was coming to the United States until they met on the plane! Bora's year at Algona high school has been an active one. Lyle Albert, Field Service Chapter advisor, says the Turkish youth has made a remarkably good adjustment. Since the first of the year Bora has given 17 talks to church and club groups, including the district student council meeting at Eldora,,March 21, and has four more engagements coming up. He was out for wrestling, but didn't compete in any meets, debate, art club, and plans to go out for track. At home he plays the saz, a string instrument, but there was no opening for this in the Algona band. Bora's home town is about the size of Des Koines and there Were 3,000 students at his high school.'\ They dress much the same'as we do here but the girls Wear uniforms at school and the boys must wear suits and ties. There are no school-sponsored dances or parties, and the young people wait Until they are much older to date than they do here. His school had an active sports program with many of the same games we have here. Soccer replaces our football and there it, no baseball. Some of the games such as the bowling matches, are broadcast over the scnool-operat- ed .radio station. He has been taking physics, chemistry, American history, literature and math here. At graduation he will receive a bo- nifide diploma but .when he goes home he will .need nine more subjects for a Turkish diploma. He plans to go to Washington, D. C. for college entrance exams, and if he passes, he will be able to enter college in Turkey next January without making up the subjects: Bora is 17 in this country, bui in .Turkey .he is already 18 Everybody there gets a year older at the first of fne year'withoui waiting for his birthday. A child's age is reckoned in months up to 12 months, and then with the new year he is automatically two years old. The Turkish exchange studeni will leave Algona June 27 and he will get to do some traveling in the States before boarding a plane for home July 30. Although there has been no definite announcement, negotiations are underway to, have another foreign student here next year under the Field Service program and it is possible an, Algona student may go abroad under the .program this summer. tUDM Engraving) ' YFW Auxiliary At Burt Names New Officers Burt — The members of the V.F.W. .Auxiliary held election af officers^ at their-regular meeting Tuesday ' evening.
