Thursday, June 17, 1957 Algoita (la.) Upper Des MoineJ-3 Turkish Youth Is Hot On American Hot Dogs A Turkish college student, Mithat Cicin, from Istanbul, was a recent 'visitor in the Dick Phillips home in Algona, a'guest of the Phillips' son, Dave, who met Mithat during the past year at Iowa State College. Mithat spent Tuesday and Wednesday, June 18-19, here* and Struck up several friendships during his stay. All were amazed at his use of the English language. More amazing is the^fact the youth has been in the United States only 11 months and never spoke English before his arrival, his only foreign, language while attending school in his' homeland was French. Following graduation from high school, Mithat was given a series of oral and written tests, and . when it was discovered, following the tests, he had the necessary intelligence to receive a scholarship, he did just that 'from the Turkish government. He and seven others came to the States during the past school year on similar scholarships, which entitle them to a complete college education, expenses paid —so long as a B average is maintained. Universities and colleges are selected by the Turkish government and students sent there for their degrees. Mithat is trying to crowd six years of study into 4Vfe years by going to summer school between regular terms, and at the end of ; that period hopes to have his BSE and MS degrees in industrial engineering. He will not return to his homeland until his education it completed, and upon his return there must work for the Turkish government for at least 12 years then may venture into the pri vate business world. His grade and high schoo? education differed from ours. In Turkey, only 11 years of schooj are require-d, ,and more subject; are taught to 'the pupils durin; the year. Mithat has been here lonf enough to form opinions abou some of his likes and dislikes in America, atlhough most are likes. "American girls most friendly" was his answer to a question regarding difference between girls here and across the Atlantic. He doesn't care at all for Rock 'n Roll, likes dancing and roller skating and loves hot dogs and hamburgers. In fact, hot dogs were his first meal in the United States. , • According to Mithat, practically all sports are featured in his homeland with the exception of baseball., Olympic wrestling is the most popular sport in Turkey, while soccer is a close runner-up. "Our wrestlers try hard to beat the Russians and work at it all the time," according to Mithat. His mother, two sisters and a brother, all older than he, reside in Istanbul, but it will be at least, another 3M> years before Mithat plans to see th°m.
