Here is an idea suggested by a pupil
of the Jefferson school in Portland. In
order that the students might- improve
themselves in their study of Spanish

ponilence be established with high
school- pupils of some of the Sent I
American countries, whereby the pupils
in the southern hemisphere who are
studying L'nglish might receive samples
ot the kind ot used m the stntes. and
at the sumo time the pupils of the Jet
ferson -school get a line on the kind
of Spanish words used in real life.
