Dear ':iss3 Rolfs:


Your letter of July 19 reached this


office just as IvMiss Brainerd was leaving for


her vacation and she therefore asked me to secure


for you a copy of the report on TUatto Grosso pub-


-I_. 's by the Museum of the University of Pennsyl-


vania. I have just had a letter from the Director


of that Museum, stating that at your request he has


just sent you a copy of the -:uzI-uel Journal contain-


ing i'1. Petrullo's report. Please let me know if


this does not reach you, in order that we may take


it up with the i'iPi-.ini again.


Sincerely yours,



Secretary to VFiss Brainerd

/..-

Latina, em que se mostraram interessados muitos estudantes e memrbros de

clubs nos Estados Unidos, e o typo de instrucqo ministrada em certos

cursos, largamente annunciados, de meeanica automobilistica, electricidade

e assumptos senslhantes, sondo muitos de taes cursos offerecidos por cor-

respondencia. Afim de ovitar que estudantes latino-amoricanos sejamn in-

fluenciados por doclaraqoes exaggeradas foitas em annuncios, foi preparada

uma noticia para a impronsa offerocondo os services da Uniao Pan-Amoricana

para obter e onviar informaqoes corroctas sobre qsses e todos os outros

typos do oscolas existontes nos Estados Urnidos.

Continuou-se o trabalho do promovor a permuta de livros oscriptos om

braille hospanhol ontro leitoros cogos dos paizes da America hcspanhola,

trabalho esto iniciado durante o anno anterior, grac.as a cooporaqao da

Bibliotheca Argentina para os Cogos, a qual forneceu copias dos seus

livros de ensino. Levou isso a urn pedido por part. da Sociedade Luis

Braille, do Equador, para ser collocada em contact corn "pessoas cegas de

outras republican arericanas. Continuando um outro movimento iniciado

anteriormiente, a diffusao de informa-3es sobre os methods de combater o

arnalphabetisro, a Secco distribuiu entire funccioluarios do governor e outras

pessoas interessadas nesta questao, urn livro muito util fornecido gentil-

mente pelo llational Advisor-, Gormmittee on Illiteracy, dos Estados Unidos.

Seirelhantemente. recebeu grande attenedo o assumpto da permuta de pro-

fessores e estudantes entire as republican amrericanas. Receberam-se numeroses

pedidos de informacoes da partc de professores e estudantes dos Estados Uni-

dos, desejosos de visitarem qualquer outra republican americana, sendo prepa-

rado um memorandum especial que trata das opportunidades offerecidas na












America Latina para estudos adiantados. A muitos professors dos paizes da

America Latina que visitaram os Estados Unidos, foram dadas cartas de apre-

sentaqo, concedendo-se-lhes tambem outras facilidades. Na Unito Pan-Ameri-

cana foi recebido um grupo de 125 professors cubanos. A Secq-o auxiliou a

formular pianos para o debate realizado na Universidade George Washington,

em abril, entire os grupos da Universidade de Porto Rico e da Universidade de

Mexico. :ITanteve-se volumosa correspondencia corn estudantes latino-americanos

desejosos de se matricularem em escolas e universidades dos Estados Unidos,

o que naturalmente incluiu a remessa de dados preliminares, providencias para

a admiss-do as escolas e em varios casos consecuqco de matric-ula gratuita ou

bolsas de estudos de valor consideravel.

Afim de superar uma das maiores difficuldades dos bstudanteo latino-

america.nos neste paiz conhocimento insufficient de inglez a Secqao

suggeriu ao Conselho de Excme de Admiss-o a Collegios ("College Entrance

examination Board") quoe os exomes especiaes para avaliar a proficiencia no

uso da lingua ingleza realizados em 1930 em varias capitals europeas, sejam

tambem realizados em cidades latino-americanas, e auxiliou o Conselho tanto

em fazer preparatives para a realizacgo desses exames, como em dar a esses

preparatives a necessaria publicidade. Em 1931 foram nomeados examinadores

em 12 dos paizes latino-americanos e espera-se que em 1932 esses exams sejam

realizados em todos elles. Por meio de takes exames qualquer estudante podera

verificar, sem sahir de sua terra natal, se possue sufficient conhecimento

de inglez para ser bem succedido em seus estudos em urn collegio ou universi-

dade dos 'stados Unidos, desse modo evitando desperdicio de tempo e dinheiro

com a viagem se nao estiver convenientemente preparado.

A Secqgo dedica muita attondao a meios polos quaes os povos, e especial-

monte, a mocidade, das Americas poderto conhecer-ee melhor uns aos outros.











Durante o anno passado deu-se impeto vigoroso, por meio de circulars diri-

gidas as escolas secundarias, normaes e commercials e por meio de cartas aos

professors, a permuta de correspondencia escolar por intermedio do Bureau

National de Correspondencia Educativa ou da Junior Red Cross. Em various casos

especiaes em que n'ao foi possivel utilizar essas agencies, estabeleceram-se

contacts individuals entire alumnos ou escolas para a permuta de sellos,

specimens de museum, jornaes'escolares, etc. Afim de auxiliar a satisfazer

a necessidade de mais material sobre os outros paizes, de typo adequado ao

uso nas escolas, e para leitores juvenis em geral, foi compilada uma lista

especial de takes livros relatives A America Latina, e a Chefe da Sec9ao assis-

tiu a uma conferencia realiz4da em Detroit por um pequeno grupo de educadores

americanos interessados nesta questdo. A Secqo temrn constantemente procurado

indicar aos collegios e universidades dos Estados Unidos a conveniencia de

offerecerem cursos sobre a historic, geographia, literature e cultural das

outras naqoes americanas, e foi corn satisfaq o que verificou por meio de uma

investigaq-o de taes cursos feita durante o anno, que grande progress tom

sido rnalizado durante os ultimos 5 annos, havendo sido offerecidos durante

o anno passado, em 209 collegios e universidades, 434 cursos desse typo, oalem

de muitos outros em que as republican latino-americanas estao incluidas jun-

tamente com outros paizesi Al6m disso, o facto de que de 6 a 10 cursos ver-

sando exclusivamente sore a America Latina, foram offerecidos em 13 das

maiores universidades, 6 sufficient para mostrar a attengao que estes assump-

tos est~o recebendo por parte dos educadores americanos. A Secqao tambem

cooperou corn certas bibliothecas latino-americanas que est-o procurando -

colligir material sobre os Sstados Unidos como base para cursos de estudo,

Dois events especiaes offereceram a opportunidade de dar emphase par-

ticular aos estudos de character pan-americano; o centennario da morte de









-5--



BoilVar e a ptimeira ceiebraqo do Dia Pan-Americano. Em connexao corn estas

duas boccasioe preparoUi e uma vasta quantidade de material que foi distri-

buido eA grande escala a autoridades e instituigoes de educaqco em todo o

territoAio das Americas, e bem assim a imprensa. Pedidos para este material,

que havia sido largamente annunciadp, vieram em grande quantidade tanto da

parte de professors como do alumnos, e os resultados obtidos sob a form de

celebraq^es espociaes realizadas em escolas e universidades, amplamente jus-

tificaram o grande esforqo feito pela Secqao.

Fazendo uso de outro meio important de conseguir que os differences

povos se conheqam melhor uns sos outros, a Secq!Ko ajudou a conseguir a rea-

lizaqao de conferencias por pessoas de illustraqgo, entire os quaes poderao

ser mencionados o Dr, Stephen P. Daggan, Director do Instituto de Educago

International de Nova York, que em junho iniciou extensa viagem ao redor da

America do Sul no interesse da approximaqsao cultural entire as universidades

sul-americanas e as dos Estados Unidos; o Dr. J. de Siqueira Coutinho, pro-

fessor da Georgetown University, que comegou urma series de conferencias nas

universidades americanas sobre a literature portugueza e brasileira; e o

senhor Enrique Aguirre, que fallou a auditorics de Washington sobre o desen-

volvimento da educagto physical e recreaqKo no ]iexice. Funccionarios da Sec-

rKo tiveram tambem a opportunidade de fazer palestras simples sobre assumptos

cultures.

A Seccqo de Cooperaqao Intellectual e cada vez mais considerada como

fonte de informaqces nos terrenos da arte, letras e sciencias. Pela list

seguinte de topicos sobre que foram fornecidap informaqoes, poder-se-4 former

uma idea da variedade dos pedidos recebidos: Indianismo na literature latino-

americana; poesia venezuelana e colombiana; a pratica de profiss"es em certos







-~-6--

paizes latino-americanos; os primeiros livros impressos na America; a arte

de tecer e. as danqas populares de Guatemala; literature da America Central;

literature para a juventude no Uruguay. Os cartoes indice de sociedades e

instituiqes, classificadas por assumptos e paizes, foram consideravelmente

acrescidos durante o anno, o mesmo acontecendo ao induce de artists, es-

criptores, homes de sciencia e deoutras profiss-es liberaes, e embora o

accumulo de outros trabalhos tenha impedido a preparaqdo da relaqzo, incluindo

endereqos, das sociedade culturaes da America Latina, relaqo esta que se

espera poder publicar brevemente, os dados existentes sobre o assumpto foram

constantemente empregados no estabelecimento de contacts para viajantes e

em responder a certes pedidos de informaq'es especificas taes como pedidos

de listas de archellogos, anthropelogas, geologos, pintores, esculptores, bem

cemo associates de artes, museus e sociedades de historic natural, associa-

ges do direito, engenharia, historia, geographia, etc. Tambem foi pedido

* auxilio da Secce- para estabelecor contacts entire poetas em differences

paizes americanos; para obter a opportunidade de tomar parte em uma expedigao

archeologica a Grecia; para obter informaq-es sobre a historic, achados ar-

cheologicos e desenvolvimentos recentes das artes, literature e sciencias

nas varias republican. Devido ao muito tempo gasto pelo pessoal da Secqoo

em responder aos numerosos pedidos de infcrmawris e em receber muitos visi-
*' .. .
tantes, s6 foi possivel preparar dois artigos (traduzidos tambem em hespanhcl

na Secqto) umn sore Don Jos6 Toribio Medina e o outro uma resenha do movi-

mento de cooperaqlo intellectual entire as Americas. Preparou-se tambem umn

certo numero de noticias para a irnprensa, a que os jornaes e outros periodicos

tanto dos Estados Unidos como da America Latina deram larga publicidade, duas

dessasnoticias recebendo conmentarios editoriaes.










A Secqao cooperou com varias outras entidades na realizaq-o de pianos

s mesrmas cenfiados. Encarregou-se, por exemplo) dos preparativos para a

exposigao em Washington de um grupo de pinturas brasileiras que haviam

sido expostas em Nova York pelo 4useu Roerich e pelo mesmo enviadas a

varias cidades dos Estados Unidos. De tempos a tempos foram recebido.s

livros e folhetes sobre assumptos culturaes, sendo os mesmo distribuidos

entire pessoas interessadas. Finalmente, deve-se mencionar o trabalho pre-

liminar important de prspara-ao para # 2. 7Congresso Scientifico Americano

em que esta e outras Seqoes da Uni-o Pan-Americana cooperam corn o Comite

Miss Hlieloise irainerd,

Pan-American Union,

Washiington, L. U.

Dear Miss 'D-rcinerdl

Now this is just ab'o.ut going to reach your office when
you are off on your summer vacation, or when it is too hot to think
about doing one single thing outside of the most necessary routine.

i wonder if you could secure and send to us a copy of
a report published not so long ago by the Museum of the Univer-
sit of Pennsylvania, by Vincent M. Petrullo, anthropologist on
a scientific excursion to Matto Grosa. We do not know the
price, but will be glad to remit as soon as you let us know If
we write directly to the Museum, they would have to write back
as to price, and so we would loose another two months sending
back the check.

This report is notea in "Time", for June 7, page 35,

We will be glad to remit as soon as we knov the price.


Seems to be another little revolution om in 6ao Paulo.
It is really a great pity that they cannot settle down and gEt some
constructive work done. Some claim that that is the whole point
for the present disturbance in Lbo Paulo, i, e., that they insist
on a return to a constitutional government. Anyway, things certainly
do remain unsettled.

Next week is the time for Farmers' Week, but no one seems
to know whether to go ahead and have it or not. Probably the atten-
dance will be very small if they should have it.

Also next week is the Internati8nal Sunday school Uonvention
loo bad the revolution couldn't have waited till it was over. Most
of the people were already on their way before it started, but of
course none of the delegates from any of the "rebel" parts of Bra-
sil cam come. It is a great pity af.er the amount of time and plan-
ning and hard work that has gone into it.

Trust that all goes well with you. Papa is fairly well.
We have heard no further about the Americans who were to
come out for the Ministerio de "kducaggo. Ignacia Uuimarles hap a very
nice position with the Dist. Federal as Director of pratise teaching.

Dear Miss Rolfs:


I am sorry to have been so much delayed in replyi:.- to your
of Febr'ar, 1 and March 8, but the pressure of work this winter
impossible to answer any but the most pressinrg letie rs.


good letters
has made it


I was glad to receive the bo1.:l:.t on "A Escola Regional", copies of which
we shall request for distribution, as you suggested. The picture of the Jardim
de Infancia group is very interesting, and I thank you so much for sending it.

It is LLC:._iraLg-i,-I to know that the C,-,lle-e is so well attended this year,

and your father must be ver"- p o:ud of the success of the institution he f[,uided.
With rei..rd to its having the largest enrollment in the si.L..ics, I cannot say.
"e believe, however, that the Coll-:- of Agriculture at Porto Rico and the new
School of -'.riculture at Medellin, Colombia, each have around 200 students.


Dr. Du-gar of the Institute of International LLu:lti:..n was r-z.s:ed to secure
the educators to start the f',i>..:.' c;ll:- of education at Rio de Taneiro, and
we learned confidentially that Dean 'Tithers of -Tew York University, and Dr.
LMe-redith, former Commissioner of Education for Connecticut, have been selected.
I believe they are both excellent men, although probably they do not know a
word of Portuguese.


With regar. to an article for the Bulletin, our Editor, Miss Brown, tells
me that Dr. Bel.lo Lisboa has furnrslch.-d an article on agricultural education
which is now in .:..ess, so that another article would not be iibedc, at present.


With kindest re-ards to your father, I aim


Very sincerely -'urs,

Miss Heloise '-raine--d, Chief,
Section of intellectual Cooperation,
Pp'n American Onion,
W a.4 :i 'ig c.1,, D C ,
Dear Miss -urainerd:

On Fieb. 15th, the"J.-.r.rdim de infanicia" (Kia,-.rgr ten)
was inaug-rated here on the grounds of the Agricultural College.
I t'y-.:ght you'd ---joy a picture, .,-. c sending one. It is espe-
ci--.ll- for th:'il:.en, of the :,oofessors f-milies, but a few from
to-n were also accented, to m.-_ke the -.umier -.ufficient. Papa and
I end a friend from Rio -"_ was visiti-i.- me were intived to attend
the "inauguration" alto we h v:- no youL-go.ters at Cur house. The
mother-in-law of one of the professors is t1-= teacher, and the"-
.- ve-;'7 fortunate in avin ;,.n./jr-e so I:od. she formerly taught
in a kind;.*;.,g .-ten in Rio. This is entirely a private ".fair, the
oLu.gstr2-, pay a ..,l1 amount a month. If you will put j the
right .gle of a tri-.,i-_.e on the numbers, yo;u can find -)ut who
the people are. I thought *.*u would enjoy seeing the various
types!Il!q
The school *:'e. started on March 1st, nm the College
is "full up". T-3 liLdcied .ioug mnn and ju_-st about h:.lf of them
new. With the one and two '..e:r courses, there is of course a more
rs..pid "turn-ov-r" than would occu:i' with the f:ur year course. But
the Middle Coi-urse is really the most important one e.er-e, for the
or-sent agricultural conditions. All of- the State, of o:rasil but
teo are -.pr-.>ented in the ftui.ent body and vt'':e ,i three from
Par.guay and :,otl-:r-on the way. This is oro".,bly the only
Agiicultur.l Collee? in Brasil whose "v7Li.a"'for this ye. r was in-
creased over what it was last ye.-:r, d-spite the Cepression. The
Director, Dr. Belo-Li:b-:33, maintains that it is the most numer-
ously atteindet:j A.ricultur-.l Colleg in all the Tropics. Can you
give us any information as to that ?

I certainly v.-ish you could see tl-L: student body, the
professors --ia t`-e i cola. Aren't you goingtto tk; adv.zntage of
the rates f.r the Sun:-a-y School Convention, in the middle of your
summer _Lnd our winter, for a v-c,. tion trip ?

I notice by the newspaper that t.e Miiniste-" of Education
is expecting to "import" :ome 'loth Am_-'iccns to he!) in the Federa'.
Yepartmeot of 'uv..tion. Itm won-ering if the selection is to be
done by jiour offi:. Here's hoping ti- y secure .:.omaone that is






-2-


com:ctent and adaptable I! The discu.Z-ion in the pppD2'_ has been
amusing. Some of the good people thought that itse educators
should come only from .uriope, some country where education was
really more advanced than in t1' U. S. A. I!

.-*t do you think about an article for the bulletin,
a seguel to the one that c.me out in the PortiLuge.s number for
May 19.9, and also in the S:...ilsh and uglish editions ? This
would deal more with the educatiiL-1 side of the d-velopment of
She i:s ola, setting fort'.h .:m of the rather surpriiti:. results.
for South *m:rica) obtained by follod.i-n the ideals set forth in
the earlier article. For inst nce, Farmers' Week, which ha-, proved
e;-. :cially successful. 'V could include a number of views and
some photographs, which make an article, more interesting. The
former article was in the. Agricultural series, wve re in doubt
as to which departmi.-it this one would *erb.-.ic.

I believe I wrote y-u :oin. '1 t at length about the
success of 'r.' Week last year. Anyway, it is difficult to
see just ho?; th?7: are Toiim t keep the number do in to -nytrhing
reasonable this y 5-.. There were .j5 t-:.nLg last year, the
third ennual~m'ting", at l-.;'t double the number that coul4
have e.-, handled to best advant:zge. A group of s:vnteen came
from the State of Espi-.ita Santo. .:ow. if a few more states get
the idea of sending del t.:.ions, just where will the Minasi.farmers
be put up ? It is .ield during the -httt winter vacation, the last
forti'.ight in July.

*e have traveled vt:,- little th-j past year., I hope that
we can get away a bit more the present year. Tho there doesn't
seem to be much chance for it. Politi.l- and1 :_-onomic conditions
are upsht, 1 SiV,:3.se I should also e'.ribicjacitl, tho the thr-'e
al,.'.--.ys g t..s.ther. '".- had a most S>.-.-lUent S.c-etary of Agricul-
ture, who had been in for nearly a year. Before that., thei'e had
been thr-ee others, all inside a year. The new one of couir-e is
quite an unknown uiantity, quite exhausting. Just -ent in a f-v1
days ago.

The -..-mmer has passed v:---" pleasantly not nearly as
L.uch warm weather as usual, plenty of rain but.not excessive.
We were nearly two w.;.k.3 on a t.i:' to Sao Paulo, shortly after
Christmas. I believe you got to t.- city of Cg- Paulo.

Papa is quite well, arid end., a.ds. I am,
