Not Enough to
"The end sought in the study of
Spanish in the university is not the
mere memorizing of grammar rules
and definitions, but to learn to speak
the language and make practical use
of this grammar," explained Mr
Cuneo, instructor in Spanish, in a
short talk given at the second meet
ing of the Spanish club, Friday af
ternoon. Forty-five students and
members of the language department
attended the meeting which was in
charge of Mr. Alexis.
Mr. Cuneo, speaking in Spanish,
discussed Argentina, its location, riv
ers, resources, and cities. The talk
was concluded with a description of
the University of Argentina which
has about the same number of stu
dents as does the University of Ne
braska. It is made up of various col
leges like American universities, but
the University of Argentina has no
fraternities and sororities. Their
place is taken by professional so
cieties and clubs.
The meeting was opened with the
singing of songs in Spanish. Miss
Mary Giangrosso sang La Paloma,
playing her own accompaniment on
the ukelele. The last half hour of
the meeting was spent in playing

Missouri's defeat at the bands of
Coach Cappon's men puts the Tigers
into a tie with Nebraska at the top
of the Valley teams. The only draw
back is that Missouri has another
Valley encounter in which to swell
her percentage, while the Valley sea

concerned. Missouri meets Oklahoma

In wirning again this fall from

fense that swept the Kansas Aggies off their feet, Nebraska
ran rough shod over the Purple eleven to win 33 to 0 in Ne

no individual stars in the Kansas Aggie homecoming battle,
but the entire Cornhusker team starred as one, ripping open
the Purple forward wall for large gains.
The first half was a period of two evently matched elev
ens fighting on the Aggie field with neither team able to gain
much headway. Near the close of the opening half Nebraska
scored the first touchdown of the game on a long pass to Lee.
The Husker team was unable to make a first down in the open
