To introduce four students - Adolfo Jose Crosa of Argentina, Rafia Ayub of Pakistan, Kaarina Honkapohja of Finland and Nii Tetteh-Churu Quao of Ghana- to the United States, and the United States to the Forum as these students represent it, the group and Mrs. Helen Hiatt Waller discuss the following questions: What ideas did they have about America before they came? Where did they get these ideas? How useful or accurate were the sources? Have they changed their opinions since they have arrived? What idea does the rest of the world have about the character and beliefs of Americans? What difference does a form of government make to the people who live under it? What are the relative advantages and disadvantages to democracies and dictatorships? Personal experience in each of these fields, as well as general ideas shared by all, combine to provide the Herald Tribune Youth Forum series with a lively opening.
