Regional Geography
The New World
South America-The Southern
' Cattle Lands of Uruguay and Central Argentina '
Talks last term dealt with that part of South America lying in the tropics. Talks this term will deal with the cooler countries in South America lying outside the tropics, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. This morning Dr. Dudley Stamp will describe the voyage from last term's stopping-place, Santos, the coffee Port of Brazil, to Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. He will talk about the people and characteristics of the latter country, the coast lands and great cattle lands, and the chilling factories where they make ' bully beef '-the canned meat so well known (too well known, some of your fathers may tell you!) during the years of war.
