-Editor's Note: This is the second
of two articles on the South Ameri-
can trip made by ten students and two
faculty men last summner. The first
article appeared in the second sec-
tion of the Daily for Sunday, Octo-
her 5th.
Leaving' Peru, the Michigan group
sailed along the Chilian coast visit-
ed Arica, Iquique and Antofagasta,
which is the center of the nitrate
business. None of these ports have
harbors. All depending on the row-
boat-basket method of landing. The
first real harbor \yas found in Val-
paraiso, the second largest port on
the Pacific, ranking just after San
Francisco. It has all the docks and
landing equipment of the modern
city. The town itself is very beauti-
ful, having a long coast, and many
hills.
Here again a .commission of stud-
ents was on hand to greet them.
Camilo Mori, president of the local
student federation German de Caso
Rivera, student of Law, and Oscar
Urquita, editor of LaUnion, the oldest
newspaper in South America, were
accompanied by other students, some
of them Americans.
The country around Valparaiso was
well covered, the visitors always'
being attended by their enthusiastic
S o u t h American student-friends.!
Vina del Mar, the most exclusive and
'fashionable summer resort on theI
Pacific, was visited. A banquet in
their honor was given at El Trocade-'
ro, a club which a great number at-
tended. They were taken on a tour of
inspection of the Naval School, the
best in Latin America.
All the boys were greatly amused
by the Chilian fire department. Theya
are composed of the very wealthiest'
men in Chili-the highest society.
To belong is a great social honor.
This custom has existed for about
200 years-and the engine houses
are all clubs of the most beautifu
and expensive character. The city
is divided into circles, each circle
with its own department, and club.}
They drill all afternoon, twice a
week, and all the prominent business
men leave their work to participate.
The clubs are decorated with trophies
won, and pictures of those who have
died fighting fire. When a fire doe:
occur, there is a terrific race to sea
which club shall get its engine to the
fire first. The men, truck drivers
and all ,are .volunteers. ;
Amid all these strange,, new con-
ditions, which the Americans were'
anxious to ubderstand, the Chilians
were proudest of their fire engines
and insisted on exhibiting them. Anil
they were all manufactured in the
United States. They even started
the engines to prove they would rurn

Shipwreck

a
A first hand view of the stark realities of shipwreck and san-
vation was afforded the University of Michigan party on their Metain
journey from South America, when the Munn son liner "Soutliern
Cross" on which they had taken passage picked up six ship-wrecked
mariners off Cape Hatteras.
Their vessel, tire schooner "Sanuel W. hathaway" had founderf, d
in one of the gales which swept the coast last summer, aind for dx
days, the little group had drifted upon the storm tossed At?~n ,
buoyed up only by the wrecked roof of the cabijn converted ini( a
makeshift raft. Without food or drink save for the hleaei andi bload
ef a few small black fish which th'ey were able to (Satch, starval on
faced them, and all about the raft man-eating shlarlba out the at at~,
waiting, with ghastly patience, for the waves to wash them laeir
victims.
Rain fell on but one day of the six, and the men, unable t -
catch much of the precious fluid, made cups of their hands and
greedily drank the few drops which they were able to harvest in
this way.
Their position, 250 miles from New York, was in the path of the
New York-Rio di Janeiro shipping, ii't although several boats p assod
quite near to the castaways, none noticed the bobbing raft until ti
"Southern Cross' came within hair or'them. fHalf naked, their shirts
torn into strips to make fishing lines, emaciated and haggard from
their long struggle with the sea and hunger, the near-miracle of ti, 'it
rescue left them in a dazed coinditio'n.
Passengers and crew of the "u6tinhew Cross" made a cohl leioii
of $900 to be divided between the rescued t en afldl The apta iA''
widow. One prominent passenger auctiotnet off a rusty w at[ci and a
belt buckle as mementoes of.the rescue, and the fi tatl _.o .
jects came from the ship's "Glorylox" did not in t:ny u:y tc
from their value.

Buenos Aires is the third largest
purt in the world, with 15 miles o1
diocks, far -more than New York. The
engineer of the port took the party
for a trip along the water front in
his gasoline launch.
Several stops were made enroate
to [razil; one at La Plata, where th.
Sciuthi American plant of the Swift
pnA:kinig company is located. These
( ockya rds are as fine as those .
Chicago, and are of tremendous in,
Ortance in f 1wSouth. Only ten
hours-; were annt in Montivideo, the
capial 01 Uraquay, and these were
taken Up by auto tour of the city. N.
time was available in which to visit
thc university there or join in the
(1eebratiOn prepared by the govern-
mt nt.
The climax of the trip, in the opin
ion of most of the party, came at
Rio de Janeiro-the chief city and
capital of Brazil, which compares
favorably with Paris, London, Ber-
1in and the other beauty spots of the
world. iiilt on a series of hills,
listening in the dense foliage of trop-
la vcgetaton, it is a veritable Eden.
lou nen days were slent there, and
many gro:; took side trips to points
in the intior, going by train through
I ropical jungles,
Therezopo lis, Corcobado, one of tha
ighles points near Rio Santo, larg-
i (,(,[lee port in the world and many
othrr tO !):, iw were visited. In the
comt"patny of Mr. Morgan, the Ameri-
En ambassador, a tour of Petropolis,
i sumer home of wealthy Brazil-
:an'; and diplomats, was conducted.
Seen of tlie boys visited Brazilian
;ld - ', i v e lowered into the
Cnfts where actual work was being
carried on.
The ruins of the recent revolution
at Sao Paulo, the most progressive
city of South America, were seen.
r-imilly the party returned to Rio,
antd took u their journey northward,
going by way of Trinidad, an island1
of a 0on .(0,000 inhabitants, famous
for its lake of, asphalt. There are
many Negros and Hindoos in Trini
dad, and to a large extent, the gus-
ts of India are observed. Port of
Spain is the principal city.
Cor nell's big red team is the holder
of the modern day football record of
-onsecutive victories. At present the
Red and White has rolled up 24
straight successes, and the prospect
fir s,veral more seems bright.
