EXCHANGE STUDENTS AMERICANS ABROAD Fran ' s Foster Family FRONT: Robert (age 8), Fran, Filomeno, Jr. (age 12) BACK: Sylvia (age 18), Mrs. Na- tividad Villon, Mr. Filomeno Villon, Vivian (age 15). The Benins, of Manila, were Fran ' s host family for two weeks. The " Americans Abroad " program of the Ameri¬ can Field Service offers an opportunity for Ameri¬ can high school students to study in foreign countries during the summer months. Andrew Lewis became eligible to enter the program after housing a foreign exchange student in 1963. Fran Kageals, from the class of ' 64, was the first student from the Roanoke Valley to be chosen in the nation-wide competition to participate in this program. She visited and studied in the Philip¬ pines in the summer of 1963, living with the Villon family in Cebu City. The purpose of the program is to acquaint American students with foreign countries and to help further peace and under¬ standing between America and other nations. In Cebu, the second largest Philip¬ pine city, old Spanish buildings, dark natives carrying packs on their heads, and horse carts were a com¬ mon sight to the American students. Fran went on many sight-seeing trips through the city with her foster parents, to get to know as much as she could about the city in her two and one-half months there.

FOREIGN STUDENT 1964 was the second year that Andrew Lewis partici¬ pated in the American Field Service Program. Our foreign exchange student was Floris Maximilian Gretzmacher, who came from Badausse, Austria, to live with senior Dan Robert¬ son and his family. After his arrival in late July a com¬ bination picnic and swim¬ ming party to welcome Floris was given by the AFS chapter and the Student Council. At school Floris became an honorary mem¬ ber of many clubs and was presented a class ring by the Latin Club. His partici¬ pation in track strength¬ ened the team and he showed ability and ex¬ perience in the sport. A special assembly was held in which Floris gave an in¬ teresting report of his homeland, his school and daily life. Many civic clubs in the area invited Floris to speak at their meetings, also. His hobbies include amateur radio and elec¬ tronics, sports, and music. When he returns to Austria he has one more year of high school, after which he plans to enter a technical school in Munich or Vienna, and major in elec¬ tronics. Floris ' s Foster Family Mr. and Mrs. T. Greer Robertson, Dan, Floris. Floris ' s stay in Salem was a year filled with much to see, do, learn, and remember. At an AFS Reception given by the Student Coun¬ cil in honor of Floris and Fran, the stu¬ dent body was invited to get acquainted with our familiar for¬ eigners. Floris sang Austrian songs and told jokes in the AFS booth at the Carnival.
