jl BUN W5DAT JUKiS 98, 1995 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.y COURIER ,NEWS Collegians' Sex Life Is Criticized By Japanese Students in U. S. A. Inside COLLEGIAN'S SEX 3-36 . • By SAUL I'KTT NEW YORK — {If)— Some 300 Jap»nese students In the Unllecl States were asked what they thought of American campus life. Tint, they said. They like the universities, they like the teachers, they like the buildings and the social freedom between professor and student. Only one thing bothers them: sex. - Many were outraEed by "social excesses" between American male students and coeds. One Japanese student complained that > "strong fragrance of sex filled the campus." "Too . much kissing and hugging in public," said another. "Their (American students') main conversation is only love affairs." "Sex it very clear in this country," still another protested. Others • were upset by "peltinfi" and "students whose courtships are not, pleasant to see." However, a small all-male minority of the Japanese students were enough impressed to be willing to give American sex standards a cautious try. Asked what characteristics of American campus life mitjht be transplanted to Japan, one boy wrote: "Dates, r mean opportunities for young men to have iree fellowship with girls and select their wives by themselves." "The poll was taken at 1G3 different American schools and universities in 37 slates by the Japan International Christian University Foundation, Inc. This is a group devoted to raising funds for a new university near Tokyo. Like Most Phases Most phases of college life here pleased the Japanese students. "If the world could be' something like an American university campus there would be no more war," one said.' They were particularly Impressed with our professors.

The child is ill with leukemia. Because they never would take Teddy away from Jean, her parents are house- hunting at Cleveland, o. ifcan "professors are kind, good and even polite to «s student*." But, several noticed, American students are not always polite to American professors. For example: "Sometimes I think the freedom allowed students is pushed too far —such as knitting In class." "Too much free behavior in classrooms, for Instance chewing gum, being noisy and making fun of the teacher." 'Many students smoke and even read newspapers during lectures." The Japanese also were" impressed by the easy-going atmosphere outside (tic class room. "Japanese students are not used to grcctinfi one another on the campus." wrote one. "I can find no Japanese equivalent to the words •hi' or 'hello.' But I know that we need it." Several thought American students tend to over-cmphasive sociability. One boy wrote, "too many parties, footballs and basketballs." Another thought that Americans needed to slow down. "Everything," he said, "going too fust mechanically. I can hardly find a chance to think about what I am doing." Women professors arc rare In Japan. The Japanese liked those they saw in thLs country. But one student noted: "Women professors have strong confidence and sometimes they seem not to change their ideas, even though others' opinions are right."
