(Glenn's Studio Photo) Burt Man Returns From Peace Corps '•If I hold your hand longer than usual when I shake it, please excuse mo," said Herman Rachut Jr. of Burt who returned last week after two years of Peace Corps work in Africa. '•You sec, one of the customs of the Ethiopians, with whom I lived and worked the past two years, is to hold hands While talking or walking." To further explain the strange custom, Rachut said that the custom is used between men while talking or walking— or on occasion women — but never between a man and a woman. Two years ago in June Rachut left Burt to take up Peace Corps work that ultimately took him to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. After 10 weeks of preliminary study at the University of Southern California at Los'Angeles, he p./rived at the Halle Selassie University. In the college of business administration at the University he taught marketing, money, banking and introduction to business. '•The college was newly established and had an enrollment of 250 and a faculty of 17 — 13 of whom were Peace Corps Workers," Rachut says. "I had the opportunity of personally meeting Emperor Halle Selassie.'' Most of the students in the university were Ethopians but Rachut was counselor for a few students from other African countries. "One of our aims, as Peace Corps workers, was to provide technical assistance and acquaint the Ethopians with habits and customs of Americans as well as learn about their way of life. And," he added, "we volunteers felt we had gained much more than we were able to give during our two years there. Rachut has resumed duties at the Burt Savings Bank where he now is the cahier.
