ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBORS ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIRES FIVE CENTS A COPY MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY OCTOBER 23 1939 MASON CITY THE BRIGHT SPOT After Maneuvers at Duck Front 3 Sons of Governor Bag Fowl in Firing Line at Lake as Game War Opens m 1 2 Die in Gun Accidents Is rrobiem for Hull By CHARLES P STEWART Central Press Columnist ARGENTINA is thc one west ern hemispherical country which makes complete PanAmerican solidarity difficult The Argentines and the rest of the LatinAmeri cans are middling harmonious but said Ar gentines by no means are in 100 per cent harmony with us of the U S A We on the opposite hand are in at least 99 per cent harmony with all the Latin Americas ex Cprdcll Hull cept Argentina With the Argentines were only about 50 per cent in harmony Be tween us there exisE no serious political differences of opinion Argentina is the richest and most progressive of the Latin Ameri cas Its people are pretty good democrats They are as anxious as we are to keep European bel ligerency out of PanAmerican waters Unfortunately we have certain clashing commercial interests Hulls Trade Policy Now a vital feature of Secre tary of State Hulls international policy has been the negotiation of a network of trade treaties be tween this and other countries such treaties to slash tariffs and generally to encourage active business relationships amongst us Its a policy which looks toward free trade the world over Hull argues that no one country can be satisfactorily prosperous unless all are But he realizes that his end can be attained only by degrees His trade treaties are degrees iri that direction As to the PanAmericas its a policy which has received a won derful fillip from present Euro pean conditions All the new world republics in perfect agreement at the recent conference in Panama City under the desirability of a com pact to compel the old world na tions to do their fighting at a long distance from our pair of continents and adjacent islands It also was the universal judgment ings to get together in a commer cial way Argentina is no exception Ar gentina snid so too as enthusias tically as anybody Argentina Differs But heres how Argentina dif zil for instance has coffee tropi cal woods and a potential supply of rubber Bolivia has tin Chile has nitrates and various metals that are in demand here The northerly hot weather republics offer equatorial fruits that dont thrive in our climate And we have manufactured goods that they require We can them to our mutual advantage Argentina also wants our man ufactured articles Hitherto it bought such supplies mainly in Europe but the war has cut off that source But what have the Argentines got to pay us off in Practicaliy nothing that we have not a superabundance of already The same kind crops that we raise plus meats and hides which we likewise have lots of Trade Pact Trouble So when Secretary Hull under takes a tradepact between the UnitedStates and Brazil or Chile et al its easy enough to arrange But now the state department is trying to fix up a dicker with Ar gentina The Argentines are per fectly ready take our manufac tures and our manufacturers wel come the opening of the Argentina market Our farmers and stock men are the folks who emit n ter rific howl at the idea of admitting Argentine wheat corn flax wool and meat at a time when we have such an oversupply of this same stuff that Uncle Sam is paying them to curtail their production The negotiation accordingly is tied up in a bowknot How its going to be untangled is a prob lem Yet the Argentines will feel that they have been discriminated against if they dont get a treaty like the others And it will be bad PanAmerican business all around if we antagonize as important a fraction of it as the Argentine re public LIGHT RAINS ARE PREDICTED Cooler Temperatures Forecast Following Batmy Iowa Weekend DBS MOINES if The weather bureau predicted light rains and cooler temperatures after a
