Hitler, Spanish Prof Says
We, The Women
In The Dorm At 4 a.m.
WITH THE. first night of house
party over and most coeds either
asleep or still bulling about last
night's events and who was with
whom, here we sit in a quiet
lounge at 4 a.m. with a typewriter
and copy paper in front of us wish
ing that the paper would suddenly
decide not to go to press so that
we could go to bed.
As we run nervous fingers
through hair which must be put
up, we decide to vote for the can
didate who will either do away
with Saturday newspapers on
houseparty weekends or do away
We think madly of something to
write about, something to discuss
gripe about, but we always get
back to the same subject—we want
to go to bed.
Maybe everyone will sleep until
noon and won't want to read the
women's page. And perhaps those
who do won't notice that our col
umn isn't there. And
who do notice will surmise that
the type lice ate the copy.
Even a newspaper woman de
serves a night of sleep, but here
it is 5 a.m. and the sun is coming
over the mountains. That's it! We'll
write about the joys of staying up
to see the sun come up. But all we
can think of is the joys of a cozy
We're just too sleepy to go on
thinking. We'll blame it on the
type lice -and climb under the
blankets. Good night!
The Word For If
Don't say we didn't warn yob!
If you're out walking some fine
houseparty morning with your
heart's desire about the time the
sun begins to come up, and his (or
her) face takes on the yellowish
green appearance of a corpse, don't
let it bother you. You won't be
the first who has noticed the effect
of the false dawn on the color of
the human countenance.
Bill Shakespeare took note of
that fact about 350 years ago when
he had Juliet tell Romeo, in the
wee, sma' hours, "Methinks I see
thee, . . . as one dead in the bottom
-of a tomb."
Dr. William S. Dye explains to
his Shakespeare classes that Juliet
is referring to the way her lover's
face looks under the pale light of
the false dawn.
So, when it's about five in the
morning and you look at your com
panion and make the startling dis
covery that, by all appearances, he
(or she) has apparently dropped
dead, think nothing of it. Just pre
tend you're Romeo and Juliet!
"The Latin American likes a
good show. Hitler has been giv
ing the world just that. Isn't it
only natural that South Ameri ,
cans should look on him with fav-
Thus, Prof. Paul R. Daugherty,
head of the Spanish department,
former resident of Argentina, and
keen student of Hispanic America,
commented recently on the South
American question-mark which is
causing so many Washington
`Why are we having trouble
making allies of South American
nations? Because," Daugherty ex
plained, "we've muffed the ball!
We don't . know their countries
and their customs; we've never
taken time out to, try to under
stand them. We haven't cooper
ated with them in the past; we've
used the 'big stick'."
"Another thing, you can't walk
into a man's office down there and
get businesslike right away," the
professor declared. "You've got to
approach him first in the good
old South American way, on a
social basis. The high-pressure
tactics our salesmen use don't go
over down there."
Typical of the South American
republics which look askance at
U. S. overtures. Daugherty con
tinued, is Argentina, the most
powerful nation of the south. He
pointed out that our "Colossus of
the North" policy of imperialism
had inspired something less than
trust for the "yawn'kees," as we
are known south of the equator.
Competition between the two es
sentially similar economies of
United States and Argentina, he
added, has helped to aggravate
the situation. •
`This feeling of political jeal
ousy, probably. due to misunder
standing, is what caused the re
luctance of Argentina to cooper
ate with Secretary of State oCr
dell Hull at the Havana Confer
ence," explained Daugherty. "It
can be overcome only if we real
ize that we must sell ourselves
culturally to Hispanic America
before we can sell ourselves eco
Asked what countries to the
south our goveinment must
watch most closely, the professor
pointed to Brazil, with its large
German populace, to Columbia,
with its German airlines, to Cos
ta Rica, Panama, and Mexico, all
with definite totalitarian tenden
cies in evidence.
"In Argentina, while I Was
there, we used to have an occa
sional student riot or labor dis
turbance," he declared, "which
the North American papers would
almost invariablly describe as a
revolution. I have been reliably
informed that the recent trouble
in Mexico was distorted in the
same fashion in our newspapers."
"I have always had the feel
ing that we Americans are too
provincial," he smiled. "We don't
get outside our own country.
