A GIANT LEARNS
Seventeen Seniors In 4 Who's Who'
How They Spent
BY PORTER DAWSON
Among the legions that heard
Perry Como sing "There's No Place
Like Home for the Holidays" were
a number of Guilfordians who tried
to do as much as possible to dis
prove the validity of this thesis.
Most of them are our foreign stu
dents. Many, who found it im
possible to go home made plans
for one of the most exciting Christ
mases they have ever enjoyed.
Ayub and Robai Watakila for
example, accompanied Mr. and
Mrs. Donald Deagon on a trip to
Pennsylvania, where Mrs. Watakila
looked forward to seeing her first
white Christmas. December tem
peratures back at their home in
Kenya range from 50-80 degrees.
Hideo Shiozumi, who misses
home very much, was invited by
some friends to spend his vacation
in Maine. They gave him a Christ
mas much like the ones he remem
bers back in Japan. He especially
looked forward to skiing again—
something that he has not done
since he left home.
Lisa Sanders went home to
Puerto Rico, where Christmas lasts
from December 24 to January 6.
There, the gifts are brought by
the traditional Three Wise Men,
much as Santa Claus brings them
in the United States.
This same kind of Christmas is
celebrated in Cuba, and Raimundo
Aviles has an amusing anecdote
about some of his past Christmases.
His family would celebrate his
mother's birthday the day before
the night of the visit of the Three
Wise Men. In the true spirit of the
season, they would leave cake for
the camels and three beers for die
Patrice Massu could not go home
to Chile, so he celebrated the holi
days in New York and New Jersey.
Suntho Teao, from Cambodia,
spent the holidays resting and
working to earn some spending
Thus many of our foreign stu
dents heard sleigh-bells ring again,
but in a different wonderland.
The Committee on Counseling
has acted on all of the proposed
changes in the Women's Student
Council constitution and rules with
the exception of the smoking rule.
It was necessary that this decision
be postponed for further admin
All of the constitutional changes
were approved, with the addition
of "and approved by the Commit
tee on Counseling" as part of the
regulation concerning the two
thirds vote of women students for
constitutional and rule changes.
The Committee agreed on the
rule changes as stated in the pro
posed changes with the following
1. The request to delete the reg
ulation concerning chaperones was
not approved as stated but will be
acceptable if stated: "During the
first semester, freshmen do not
leave the campus alone."
2. The Committee did not ap
