schools. If the children are attending private schools both parents must work to pay the tuition. * Often times one parent will pay the monthly household bills while the other pays for the children's education. The* English language is taught as well as Spanish, the language of Puerto Rica. Even though the average | salary of Puerto Rican people is not as high as that of A mericans their environment is ·> similar. Foreign industry has '' made Puerto Rica a very pros- I porous country which meas- ] ures only 35 miles wide and | 100 miles long. Being very thickly populated there are 600 people every square mile. Bobbi related that there is I more fashion in Puerto Rica ! than here because Americans: have changed to the casual- ■ wear trend. America is an ex ample for Puerto Rica and in return Puerto Ricuns are an i example tor the Latin Amei i- I can countries. The teased hairdos have been very popular in Puerto Rica as were the crinoline pet ticoats in past years. The maj or reason that Puerto Rican people follow the fashion ideas of our nation is due to the thousands of Americans living there because of industry. In the last 15 years Puerto Rica has definitely reached a new realm in the income bracket. But then, haven't A mericans known a more pros perous, comfortable way-of life during this period? Since 1947 there have been about 600 foreign factories und mills constructed in Puerto Rica which make everything from under garments to TV I" tubes. There Is no more class dis tinction in Puerto Rica than America. The middle class forms the largest group. The> have comfortable homes bin have to work ha id for their wages. The wealthy class is made up largely of factory owners. Bobbi, especially wanted her Columbus County friends t< know that the Puerto Rican people are among the nicest in the world. She says that the average Puerto Rican is very clean and kind and their feelings are easily hurt." But if you get in with one. you've got a busom buddy for life," she said. Many of the Puerto Ricans who have migrated 11 America give their entire country a bad reputation with American people. The reason many left was because th«. ν were mist its in their own country so surely they will not adapt to the living stand ards in a strange land, Bobbi said. "It isn't lair to judge Puerto Riea by these misfits. 1 want everyone to know that I have found the Puerto Ricans to be i.eeeiit, industrious and pleas ant." When ask what she liked most about Puerto Rica, the answer came in an instant "The Weather! The winters are 7-1 while the summers are 84 degrees. You wear the same type of clothing all-year round, needing only a light weight sweater on winter nights," said Bobbi. The climate makes sugar cane, bananas, pineapple and other citrus fruits the chief foods grown in Puerto Rica. Have you ever tasted a bar. - ·_ α-.»ι,,·· Bobbi declares feat this is a delicious frui' ; which is shaped like a banana with a tough peel. It is exactly vhat the name implies, a ban ana and apple orossed in pol lination to make one delicioiK fruit Bobbi also admits that shi prefers Puerto Rican food t« that of her native land even though it is rich and "fatten ing," No inatteer how fine ι meal is placed on the Pue.t. Rican table there must alway. be beans and rice. On the Wo man's page today you wil find the recipe for their bean.«' and rice. The favorite meats of Puer to Rica are as in America steak and chicken. We ar also publishing Bobbi's favor ite recipe. Chicken Asopo 01 you may call it, "Chicken *n Rice." By the way food prict-i· are one third higher than those here. Does Bobbi's life sound ex citing to you? After talking to her just a few minutes ont knows that she is not unhappy and homesick but loves every minute of her missionary work. Referring to her work :;he said, "1 feel that after launch ing this missionary endeavor my life has been enriched in various ways. It has broaden ed my vision of the need for better Christian education not only in Puerto Rica but thro ughout Latin America. We must evangelize the people in order to fight Communism." We will have another news article on Bobbi in about two months when she becomes ! Mrs. Ellsworth Fowler. Bobbi will marry Mr. Fowler, a Wis consin native on May 24.
