He cited recent Mid- <br />dle East oil price h~es and fre- <br />que:lt Presi,jential visits with <br />heads of state as two examples <br />of this fact. . <br />To correct the international <br />ignon'mce of American studellts, <br />Dr. Khan su&gested social stud'y <br />courses in high schools have a <br />larger scope and that they in- <br />clude an understanding of the <br />economic resources of other <br />countries. More excInncie >,tu- <br />dents would also be a strong fac. <br />tor in bringing more internatio:l- <br />al understanding to American <br />classrooms in his estimation. <br />Ord High history teacher Dan <br />Hersh got to know Dr. Khan <br />while Hersh was a member of the <br />l'\ebraska-Asian Institute. In 1974 <br />Hersh and other students from <br />the st3.te's foul' teachers colle?es, <br />who made up the institute, viSIted <br />Pakistan and other Asian count- <br />ries. <br />Dr. Khan has been visiting <br />schools in Nebraska and through- <br />O'Jt the nation recently under a <br />10 month Fulbright grant. While <br />touring the country he meets Witil <br /> <br />te3.chers and suggests ways to <br />bro3.den American students know- <br />led€;e of the \,\orld. <br />Tne visiting educator read- <br />ily admitted international under- <br />standing is a two-way street. His <br />son, Asad binZafar, plans to at- <br />t~nc1 Chadro:l St8.te LollEge this <br />fall as a pre-engineering student. <br />Asad may return home to help <br />tap Pakistan's huge supplies of <br />oil, natural gas, coal and ,many <br /> <br />other minerals. <br /> <br />Dr. Khan used his son's plan- <br />ned American education and his <br />visit here as proof that interna- <br />tional travel and influence are <br />becoming the rule rather than <br />the exception. In his estimation <br />the world is becomil1g smaller <br />and smaller. He contended Amer. <br />ic'll1 educators might do well to <br />promote a better understanding <br />of it. <br /> <br /> <br />Zangger - Osentowski Named <br />Outstanding Young Americans. <br /> <br /> <br />Lange Chairman <br />Of Pariy Rally. <br /> <br />E.
