Buenos Aires, Rio, Lake Titicaca,
the highest navigable lake in the
world, Sugar Loaf, Trinidad-all the
fascinating sights of South America
plus eight hours credit in Spanish.
That is what is offered by the
"Around South America Tour," which
is being sponsored this summer by
the University of Nebraska.
The cruise is being conducted by
Dean Helen M. Hosp of the univer-
sity, who is keenly interested in fur-
thering Pan-Americanism. Carlos M.
Teran of Ecuador is a graduate of
the University of Bogota, and has
done extensive graduate work at
Louvain and California where he is
now a member of the faculty. For
those who wish college credit, he
offers classes on shipboard, conver-
sation, and conferences in South
As part of the policy of the national
government to acquaint American
students -with our South American
neighbors, the trip is offered as a
unique experience in developing
friendships. In addition to study and
sight-seeing programs, the members
of the party are invited to visit with
families, schools, civic organizations,
and to enjoy the social life in South
American capitals.
The group will sail from New York
June 28, stopping at Cristobal on the
way through the Panama Canal to
Equador and Peru. From Lima they
will begin an overland trip by bus

through Peru, Bolivia and Chile, vis-
iting Cuzco, the ancient capital of
the Incas, as well as La Paz, the
highest capital in the world.
By airplane, the members of the
party will cross the snow-capped
Andes and the broad Argentina pam-
pas to spend five days in Buenos
Aires. From there they will sail to
Rio de Janeiro and Trinidad, arriv-
ing in New York Aug. 25.
Those who are interested in the
tour may obtain more information
from the office of Dean Lloyd, who
suggests that in as much as credit
from the University of Nebraska is
transferable to the University of
Michigan, the cruise would be an
excellent opportunity to combine
study with travel.
