Mercado Believes
Spanish Good Will
Can Be Developed
"By shaping the views and let-
ting the Spanish-American who
comes to the UnitedStates to col-
lege ,.in" on the inside of what
America stands for, much of the
talked about good-will between
South America and this country
can be developed," said Ermelindo
Mercado, instructor in Spanish,
when interviewed on this subject.
"Many Spanish-Americans come
to the United States with pre-con-
ceived ideas about this country; of+
course such ideas must be erro-
neous," continued Mr. Mercado.
"Sometimes when these young peo-
ple come to college in the States
they are more or less forced by cir-
cumstances to become isolated from
the general run of American stu-
dents and they do not learn what+
they should about the United!
States. However, I have known of
cases where the right thing was
done and the South-American went+
back home with high ideals and
great devotion for this country-
one more friend"
Mr. Mercado emphasized the fact
that Spanish-American students,
come to American universities tol
obtain a practical college education.
The sports chiefly indulged in are1
racing, swimming and tennis. Golf
is the aristocratic sport in France,
chiefly because the courses are so
far from the city and it takes so
much time to go out and play.
Chiniese Cross-Stitch
Holds Popular Favor'
"Other designs jnay come and go,
but the popularity of cross-stitch,
and particularly of the Chinese
variety, goes on forever," says
Katherine D. Riggs in the Woman's
Home Companion.
Most people have not the time to
duplicate the tiny cross-stitches,
but they may still copy the old
Chinese designs. A little teamster
with his horse and two-wheeled
cart or a dragon ship embroidered
in bright colors of blue, red, yellow
and green makes a cheerful pattern
for scarves or cushions.
The first iron furnace and foun-
der in Cleveland was started in the
spring of 1828.
