republic has had no more dif ficult or perplexing problem than maintaining the friendship and good will of our neighbors south of the Rio Grande And by this I mean all of the nations in what we call Latin America In the early days our primary concern was their exploitation by the European nations claim ing them by right of discovery Combined with this altruism it should be admitted was some slight consideration of our own security It was out of this situa tion that our Monroe Doctrine was conceived and promulgated That document announced to the world in rather strident tone that br6pkno miliUry iriterf erehce by f 6reigng6v erri the Western Hemisphere Im plicit in this doctrine was a pledge that we have no interest in airs pf other hemispheres meaning Europe of course t That placed Uncle Sam n a Big Brother role As Latin American nations began to feel their oats and this has been particularly true of Argentina they to resent1 the guard ianship pf hemispheric peace written into the Monroe Doc trine This resentment gave rise to such expressions as Colossus of the North and Yanquis not Photofax TRAFFIC MacDonald 31 mother of four shows how she acts as a roadside vamp to slow

she says Thank you for stoppingI do hope you will observe the speed limit I1 saw drivers whistling at girls in the village and that gave mean idea she said later Yanquis go or disliked the wanted home But liked Monroe Doctrine was in effect until World War I It was then that we ourselves departed from one of the premises inherent in the document We began mixing in Europes affairs in a big way Our dispatch of marines to pro tect our interests during fre queht banana wars in Cen tral America and elsewhere opened Uncle Sam to a lot of criticism too A new approach to our Latin American relationships seemed to be in order Under Harding and Coolidge the term partner ship began to be heard sug gesting that our paternalism toward Latin America be tempered with a little mutual consultation Then came a new phrase and a new concept good neighbors and good neighborship as the core of pur Latin American policy The term had its first use dur ing the Hoover Administration but it did not come into full flower until Franklin D Roose velt started givinghis attention to the land to our south It looked very much as if at long last we had found the long sought formula for bringing peace and understanding to our Western Hemisphere But that happy eventuality wasnt to be Fascism began to show itself in certain of the South American nations with a heavy Italian stock notably Argentina A little later Hitler ism showed up in a menacing form notably in Brazil and Chile Then came the distant drums of war and an ominous threat to the free world Face4 by that menace the United States began employing such tactics as seemed to be needed to beat Hitler and Mus solini in their bid for Latin Americas blessing Our pro gram pretty much took the form of ladling out money where it would do the most good A Turn 2 Money scattered along ditch bandits nabbed ALTOONA man was killed and two others were in jured when their crashed in a highspeed chase after the Al toona State Bank was
