A hoped for international coop¬ eration guided the Pan Am League through the year. The Pan Am League helped Rocky students by promoting an interest and appreciation for the culture and language of Latin American and Spanish speaking countries. This year the club was fortunate to have one of the summer APS students in the club. Laura Van Der Kamp showed slides of her summer in Spain at the October Pan Am meeting. The November meeting was highlighted by Spanish dancers and authentic Spanish food. In January the annual pinata party was held. Pinatas ranged from the usual mod types to those resembling vultures and other strange creatures. Any Rocky student was eligible to join Pan Ameri¬ can League even if he was not enrolled in a Spanish class. Although English was the main method of commu¬ nication, Spanish was occasionally spoken.
