Indigestion Vanishes in
The people of South America are
keenly alive to the fact that through
out the United States there exists this
ignorance as to their affairs. They hear
of our exchange of professors with
European Universities, they know of
the migration of our students to Ger
man, French and Knglish institutions,
they hear of millions spent by Ameri
can tourists in European travel, and I
they wonderingly inquire as to the
causes of our indifference.
We must give a more positive inter
pretation and content to our relations
with the republics of South Ameiica,
which shall express itself in a systema
tic eiTort to establish greater unity of
thought and action between the north
ern and southern sections of the hemis
phere. One of the most important
agencies contributing toword this end
is the Bureau of American Republics,
which is rapidly fulfilling the ideals of
it 4 founders.
A heavy obligation also rests upon
our universities. They must inculcate
in a larger portion of cur students a
clearer appreciation of the significance
and content of the Spanish-American
civilization. For the larger opportuni
ties uf business life we need an ever in
creasing portion of men who know the
Spanish language. It will soon be quite
us important for the North Ameri
can to lenrn Spanish ns it is for the
South American to learn English. But
a knowledge of the Spanish language,
important as it is, is not sufficient.
It must be supplemented by a study of
the economic conditions, political or
ganizations and literary achievements
of the Latin American. The record is
one that is worth tho serious attention
of every student. Our universities must
furthermore inculcate in the student a
broader intellectual sympathy; a readi
ness to understand a people nnd a civi
lisation different from our own, -in a
