Hemisphere in mos cases could persuade and preven only when supported by strong very of hardnosed war if the European powersr per sisted More simply Mr Monroes doc trine was a device of statecraft in tended to help keep the Unitec States out of war by preventin the development of a situation in which the national interest woulc compel the United States to under take a war The essential points that

at Banes on Cubas northeastern coast about 8 miles north ofthe US naval base at Guantahamo Castro said the port will be constructed and used by Russia under a 10year contract How ever he referred to

governments who have declared their independence and maintained it These are two of five basic points certified by the late J Reuben Clark who in 1928 wrote for the State Department a memo on the Monroe Doctrine Clark was undersecretary of state Clarks scholarly analysis clear ly shows that in purpose and in application Mr Monroes doc trine was a preventive measure like wearing rubbers against the threat of heavy rain As wearing rubbers would serve not much purpose after the feet were wet so the Monroe Doctrine is not likely to be of m u c h use after the fact of old world intrusion into the new world as communism has intruded in Cuba The doctrine was stated in 1823 Cuba has figured since in a dozen developments which could be con sidered as coming within area of the principles underlying the Mon roe Doctrine More often than not over the years the doctrine was the basis of sturdy US diplomacy to prevent Great Britain from seizing Cuba from Spanish control The United States was ever eager and anxiousto prevent a great naval power Great Britain from controlling the strategic Cuban harbors and bases and thereby the naval situation in the Caribbean This was true in August 1849 when Spain was be lieved to be negotiating cession ol Cuba to the British The State Departmentinformed the US minister to Spain that This US government is resolutely determined that the is land of Cuba shall never be ceded by Spain to any other power than the United States The cession o Cuba to any foreign power would in the US be the instant signa for war That ended that Farm Features13
