SPANISH NOT NECESSARY:
"Knowing Spanish is not the prin-
cipal prerquisite for landing a job
in Latin America," George Hall, as-
sistant to the. director of the Inter-
national Center, said in a speech
before the Spanish Club yesterday in
the Grand Rapids Room of the
Hall described Americans in the
United Fruit Company Divisions in
the Tropics and the social life there.
He pointed out that there are three
main racial groups; the white, the
negro, and the mestizo, who are a
mixture of Indian and Spanish. "So-
ciety in the United Fruit Company
Divisions in Panama is all divided
into two classes, the whites being' the
first class and the negroes and Mes-
tizo, the second class," he said.
Hall commented on the beauty and
pageantry of the fiestas patronales,
which is the patron saint day that
inaugurates the three day carnival or
mardi gras. Even though originally
these celebrations were entirely reli-
gious, he said that they have now be-
come festive occasions.
"At such times they have cock
fights, bull fights, athletic meets,
group horse back riding and dances.
Since each town has a separate pat-
ron saint, and all the towns try to
pick saints whose day of celebration
falls during the dry season, it is
possible for one to attend five or six
of these festivities in an interval of
about four months," Hall added.
Probably the most important event
at these celebrations, he said, was the
election of the queen. There is usu-
ally intense rivalry among all the
beautiful girls of the village at such
times. The queen is elected by popu-
lar vote. These votes are sold for a
nickle apiece. He said that you nev-
er find a poor girl being queen. The
money collected is used to pay for
the expenses of the holiday.
"These festivities have aroused the
curiosity of the Americans and has
been one means of introducing Am-
ericans to the colorful customs of
the Latins," he stated.
"Even though I claim that Panama
is the cross roads of the world, Miss

As in previous wartime semesters,
the Michigan Union offers free mem-
bership to servicemen stationed on
campus this summer.
The holding of a Union card en-
titles the serviceman to use of all
the Union facilities, including the
swimming pool and the billiard
tables, gives him a convenient place
to cash his checks, and later in the
summer will admit him free of charge,
to the Union membership dances.
These dances are planned for Friday
and Saturday nights and will begin
in the next few weeks.
Registration will begin Tuesday
and will continue through Thursday,
Aug. 17. Servicemen are asked to

Problem Attacked at Source
"We are getting at the problem
at its source by training normal
school teachers in public health so
that they can transmit the sorely
needed knowledge to the student
teachers of Quebec," explained Dr.
Jules Gilbert, director of health edu-
cation of the Province of Quebec,
speaking of his task of directing and
coordinating the work of the train-

brothers now working for their
master's degrees in Public Health at

The Kellogg Foundation, which is
financing the field work in both the
nurse and religious groups, has also
presented Dr. Gilbert with a schol-
arship in the School of Education
workshop, so that he takes part in
and follows closely the work of the
priests and brothers.
The Cleveland Health Museum and
the Teachers' Institute in Boston are
the next stopping places of the cler-
gymen in their training program.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Aug. 8.-
(P)-Negro voters turned out in
greatly increased numbers today for
Arkansas' Democratic primary run-
off in which youthful Rep. J. W.
Fulbright and 53-year-old Gov. Ho-
mer M. Adkins engaged in a bitter
contest for Hattie W. Caraway's Sen-
The Negro vote was estimated by
Dr. J. M. Robinson, president of the
Arkansas Negro Democratic Associa-
tion, at about 5,000. This turnout
compared to only about 900 in the
preferential primary two weeks ago
in which the new state party rule
substituting a party loyalty test for
a racial ban was given its first trial.
Fulbright, who was removed as
president of the University of Arkan-
sas in 1943 by a board of trustees
named by Adkins, an old political
opponent, led a five-candidate field
in the first primary in which Sena-
tor Caraway, the nation's only wo-
man senator, was eliminated. Mrs.
Caraway adopted a hands-off policy
in the run-off.

Puerto Rico, in the futureof Inter-

the impact of two cultures, Amer-

"Before accepting permanent com-
pulsory military training for eigh-
teen year olds after this war, the
citizens of this democracy should
discuss the problem thoroughly and
from every angle," Prof. William
Clark Trow, of the School of Educa-
tion said yesterday in a University
Lecture in University High School
"Those military men who advocate
a year's compulsory training usually
advocate it on other than military
grounds. Health, economic and edu-
cational arguments are the most
"Military training will not stop
another war. Both France and Rus-
sia had military training, which did
not prevent Germany from attack-
ing them. We already have the ASTP
prepared for policing the world,
which should make other trainees
unnecessary," were two of the argu-
"Some of the military say that
compulsory military training is nec-
essary to provide healthful living,
vigorous physical, and medical care,"
Prof. Trow continued.
Program Not Inclusive
"If tax money is to be spent to
recondition men, it would be much
wiser to spend that money on- citi-
zens during the early part of their
lives," he said.
"Another point," added Prof.
Trow, "is that the Army is for the
robust and is tough for the weak
