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

School 's Social Activities
The members of the Junior Sorelles have
worked with a fine spirit of cooperation this year.
At the first meeting we were initiated by the
Senior Sorelles and then we elected officers. The
meetings for the rest of the year were held in the
homes of members. W

Down on her knees begging for dues was our Treas-
urer, Nancy Santchi. Frantically. Jeannine Moree,
Inter-Club Council representative tried to tell us
about the Inter-Club Council pot-luck supper.
Rather than entertaining ourselves with a
party at Christmas, we decided to entertain a
group of orphans at the Miami Children's Home
on River Road, Maumee. Ohio. We played various
games and sang Christmas Carols. Then after dis-
tributing the gifts, we served refresliments. Con-
nie Cromwell was chairman of this party. She was
assisted by Pauline County. Myrle Romanoff. Bar-
bara Roth, Kathleen Casey. and Marilyn Ross.

We all anticipated the fun we were going to
have at our cottage on Lake James this summer.

We were very fortunate to have Mrs, Sutter
as our faculty adviser. Mrs. Harkness, mother of
one of the members. gave us wonderful ideas and
a helping hand whenever we needed it.
Wie hope that next year will be as successful
and as much fun as this one has been.

Chevaux Club Blazes New Trails
This club decided to go places in the riding
world this year. And to canter us through we
elected the following officers: Marilyn Vifeir, Pres-
identg Virginia Reese, Vice-President and Inter-
Club Council Representativeg Marjorie August,
Secretary, Marian Van Gorder, Treasurer. We
chose Mrs. Helen Malone, owner of Ascot Stables,
and Miss Mildred Pasch for our advisers.
Under our skilled and excellent instructor,
Mr. Mel Wilson, we learned that there was a great
deal more to horseback riding than just hopping

your back and keep in time with the horse's step.
After the first few lessons in cantering, "Oh, my
aching hack," was heard many times. A rocking
chair motion is usually the description give11 to the
feeling of a canter. But after all the aches and
pains had diminished we all knew that it had
been a worth while experience.
We were quite busy this year blazing trails
through sixty-four acres of beautifully wooded
land at the new Ascot Stables in Sylvania, Ohio.
In the spring an indoor barn was built thus aiding
our riding during inclement weather.
Though small, our club had many good times.
We met the last Thursday of every month in the
home of one of the members. This year for the
first time underelasswomen were allowed to join.
Shirley Boyd, Beth Baldwin, Carole Balsmeyer,
and Anita Etters became the new members.
As this year ends, we look forward to an-
other blue ribbon year.
