Spanish Club Studies The Americas
One of the largest and liveliest clubs in De-
Vilbiss was organized this year under the name of
uLa Alianza Latino-Americanaf, For the first
time in the school's history, a Spanish club hacame
an affiliate of the International Student Pan Amer-
ican League. Chartered by the International
League, we have as our creed, c'Liberty-Peace!
.lustice - Law - Friendship - Brotherhood -
Government - Family - Fatherland - God."
We aim to help create a better understanding be-
tween the young people of the Americas. As an
affiliate, the HAlianzo" took part in various ac-
tivities including foreign correspondence and the
study of countries and their heroes.
The club decorated the small cafeteria at
Christmas time. Hard work and co-operation on
this project produced a truly Spanish atmosphere,
and won for us first place in the decoration con-
test. lnstead of the traditional 'Gnacimientov we
painted a large picture of the holy family on the
window. Nine colorful and intricate pinatas hung
from the ceiling: doves and poinsettias ltypical
Spanish symbolsl brightened up the blackboard.
Co-chairmen of the decorating committee were
Mary Lou David and .Joyce Rehn.
Barbara Price and Jacquelyn McLain were
in charge of programs. Helping them were Gloria
Brown and Eleanor Trudel.
Two of our members, Barbara Price and Mar-
garet Thyen, gave very interesting accounts of their
travels through Mexico last summer.
Pan American Day is an annual celebration
to which the whole Spanish department looks
forward. Two very able members, Betty Houston
and Virginia Reese were in charge of the program
this year. Singing, dancing and speeches marked
the occasion. Mr. Russell Brown, Dean of Boys
and former head of the Spanish department, ad-
dressed the group.
The club was governed by three advisers:
Miss Marian Smith, Miss Ursula Schmit, and Mrs.
Dorothy Mills: and five officers-.June Phillips,
Chairman: George Leighton, Vice-Chairman: Bar-
bara Price, Corresponding Secretary: .lane Curtis,
Recording Secretary: and Jane Starkey, Treasurer.
We believe that for a young club, the uAlian-
za" accomplished many things and has a bright
