" Now hit it! " A bog full of condy and treats are going to storm down when Hector Carrillo batters the pinata. Ron Johnson, John Coolidge, Richard Schrage wait in apt attention to get their share. Ed Stack and Steve Urie watch Linda Riddell play cat and " i Habla Ud. Espanol? " " St, hablo Espanol muy bien. " When this apparently interesting conversation is translated, a non- Spanish- speaking individual would be able to see that the questioner is inquiring " Do you speak Spanish? " The answer is, of course, " Yes, I speak Spanish very well. " What other answer could a member of the Pan American League give? The League endeavors to aid the students of the Spanish language in the pursuit of their studies. The study of the upside down question marks, words with accent mark or wavy lines topping them, and sentences with reverse word order is given more life and in¬ terest by the varied Pan-American programs. The bright and colorful lives of the Spanish, Mexican, and South American peoples is stressed in the activities of the League. Mem¬ bers learn more about the fiery-tempered populace of Spanish-speaking lands, the ex¬ plosive music and vivacious dances, the rol¬ licking sports, the peppery food, and the jaunt¬ ily colored clothes. They learn of the educa¬ tion of the people de Espanol. Members learn about the living conditions, the wealth and the poverty of the people. In this way, Pan American League members can better under¬ stand the people and the language of Spain 156 and Spanish-speaking countries.

League officers gather to form the year ' s agenda including ploys, parties, and pinatas. Seated: Judy Munn, Treasurer; Janet Burke, Secretory. Standing: Sheila Andich, Vice- President; Robert Lowitz, President; and Pryce Boeye, Vice-President. League Takes of the Border mouse with a pinata with the help of Robert Fedderson. In contrast to its cultural and education¬ al (ospect, the Pan American League has a more festive facet. One of the gayest and most important affairs on its program of evqpts is the annual pinata party held during the Christmas season. When one first enters the room, the entire atmosphere seems to be that of a strange world. The garishly decorated figure dangling from the ceiling, whether in the shape of an animal, a plant, a ball, or some unusual form, is called the pinata. It is filled almost to overflowing with small, hard can¬ dies, miniature candy bars, candy kisses, and inexpensive presents. Each member, in turn is blindfolded and handed a large, clumsy stick. With much giggling and awkward scuffling around the room, the blindfolded boy or girl strikes wildly toward the ceiling in an attempt to break the pinata and spill its bountiful contents onto the floor. When the pinata is finally shattered, there is a desper¬ ate scramble to see which member is able to grab the greatest number of prizes and candies. This hilarity, combined with the singing of Spanish Christmas carols and the distribu¬ tion of Christmas cookies, composes a plea¬ sant and eventful Pan American League meeting.
