Can you imagine seeing two feet
of snow in July - or going to school
with students from all over the
world - or eating cheese and po
tatoes for breakfast? All this and
more happened to Salem’s two Oslo
Scholars, Kristin Jorgenson and
Carol Quick, and Donetta George
who accompanied her two friends
to the Oslo International Summer
School in Norwany. Kristin and
Carol received their scholarships
through the estate of the late Cor-

Polish Attache Comes To Salem;
Lectures To Sociology 303 Class
Hcmryk Walenda, cultural
attache to the Polish embassy in
Washington, lectured to the Soci
ology 303 class. Introduction to
Social Welfare on Thursday, Octo
ber 19. Mr. Walenda was visiting
in Winston-Salem to attend the
concert of the Warsaw Quintet at
the invitation of the Wake Forest
Chamber Music Society, and while
here lectured to social science class
es at Wake Forest and Salem.
Mr. Walenda presented a short
lecture on culture in Poland, then
opened the class to informal dis
cussion with questions and answers.
In Poland much emphasis is put on
concert music and the theater. Each
city of any size has its own concert
hall and theater, and performances
are w'ell attended. There is much
interest among university students
in the theater movement.
When asked what young people
do in Poland, Mr. Walenda replied
that in his experience, he found that
young people were the same the
world over. Those in Poland go
to local discotheques, listen to the
Beatles, and enjoy most of the
same activities, as do students in
the United States.
Education in Poland is free from
the beginning grades through the
university. Students who wish to go
to the university are required to
take rigid academic tests in order
to qualify, so only the most capable
students attend the University.
Even though the Polish emphasize

Jim Sheffer, juniors at W. F. U.,

Ted spoke to the group about

prisoner of war who after losing
almost everything began to pray
and later lived to tell his story.
The meeting was adjourned with

way in June on the M-S Bergens-
fjiord for six weeks of study and
additional travel. They were actual
ly lucky to get to Oslo, for after
the ship docked in Copenhagen for
one afternoon, they almost didn t
make it back on board before the
ship left. A non-English-speaking
taxi driver took the Salem girls on
a frantic and unintentional tour of
the city. As the Bergensfjiord bells
rang, the girls quickly changed cabs
(after minor injuries) and arrived
at the dock only to be cheered on
by the other eight hundred passen
gers as they hopped up on the
rapidly rising gangplank.
In Oslo Kristin studied Norweg
ian language and international re
lations. Carol studied Norwegian
history, society, and literature, while
Donetta took courses in Norwegian
history, society, and politics. All
the summer school students were
required to take a general course
in Norwegian culture, and all class
es were in English.
Approximately four hundred stu
dents from 48 countries, including
Russia, Nigeria, and Vietnam, at
tended the school. Half the stu
dents were from the United States.
Even meeting these North Ameri
cans was an experience for the
three Salem girls since most were
from the Mid - West and West
Coast. Having a Southern accent
was an easy way to attract atten
tion in this crowd. Kristin, Carol
and Donetta lived with two Illinois
girls and another from New York
in a dormitory located on the site
of an old farm, Blindern.
Their social life consisted o f
traveling to various parts of Nor
way, including the region where
the movie The Heroes of Telemark
was filmed, and meeting people.
One of the girls’ friends was a
Norwegian boy who often took
