tgbrojqta bfe dzfo u rs "Nous parlons francais comme les Frangais" --means, "We speak French like Frenchmenl" The linguistic fellows and girls who "parlez- vous" learn their arts and talents in 3l4 where Madame Stiles is the FRENCH CLUB sponsor. Came Thursday afternoon you found the "Pier- res and Maries" giving delightful and educa- tional skits en francais-but "natchl" This year something revolutionary took place in the Club. Through Madame Stiles' efforts, club meetings were held at night at various homes, and French- born people were invited to speak to our "phil- ologists." M. Caillaud, a member of Les Forces de la Re'sistances, who fought on the side of the Free French during the war, told Le Cercle Fran- gais many of his experiences. After "less mem- bres" gave their plays, everyone conversed in French, and finally topping off a fine evening, "les rafraichissementsn were served! From meetings such as these which stressed a delight- ful time by all and which had an obvious educa- tional value also, a more intelligent student has resulted. A burst of gay Spanish music filled the previ- ously quiet air, accompanied by sounds of laughter and singing. No-Xavier Cugat was not making a personal appearance on the third floor of dear old Davis. lt was merely one of the regular meetings of the SPANISH CLUB. This happy group was composed of Spanish- speaking students who were anxious to expand their conversational ability, and, incidentally, have a good time doing it. Those who couldn't speak Spanish were highly recommended not to join the club, since meetings were conducted entirely in that language. And by the way, president Paul Nicolay lwith occasional assistance from Miss Leightonl did a swell job of running those meetings. Spanish songs, Spanish games, and Spanish plays were some of the activ- ities indulged in by mem- bers. During Regents Week, an excursion was made to New York City to attend a Spanish movie. You can be sure a good time was had by all-in a Spanish sort of a way. Hasta la vista, amigos mios. FRENCH CLUB lTopl Row l: S. Simes, F. Schramm, l. Farago, S. Zeckendorf, l. Goldberg, G.
