' Cattle Lands of Uruguay and Central Argentina '
L. DUDLEY STAMP, D.Sc.
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.

In Virginia Woolf's opinion, craftsmanship is a word that can be applied to the making of pots and pans, but not to words in the way in which writers use them. There is a distinction to be made between the useful use of words and their literary use. The novelist and the scientist use words very differently. Mrs. Woolf is a believer in the importance of a large choice of words, but she deplores all attempts to teach people 'how to write.'
