Of this we were reminded by reports from (he travels of Vice President Johnson, reports of the evidence found, particular- ly in Africa, of the work of the American missionary. So, it carnc about, we found our way to Room 5718 of the State Department and an ap- pointment with a couple of the department's experts on African matters, William Duggan, vet- eran of 18 years service in Af- rica, and Richard Sanger, pub- lic affairs adviser in the Afri- can division of the department. What's the role, if any, we asked, of the missionary in America's efforts to win the emerging nations of Africa over to the side of democracy? "The more I see of the Amer- ican missionary, the higher re- gard I have for said Dug- gan, just home from a lour of duty in Tanganyika. Sanger cited three fields, aside from the missionary's prime mission of preaching Christianity, in which mission- ary efforts bring by product benefits to U. S. diplomacy: The missionary gives the Unit- ed States "a wonderful reputa- tion." He presents America through himself. The missionary performs medical services; in many Af- rican cases he brings I ho na- tives' only (ouch with modern medicine. know of this med- ical Sanger said. "A medical missionary saved my life in Ethiopia back in '29." Duggan gave as an example of mission medicine a large Bap- tist tuberculosis hospital in Tan- ganyika and he gave as exam- ple of the "pulling power" of the medical missionary stories of how the proud Measi tribes- man will walk 300 miles to get medical help from a mission. I And, thirdly Sanger noted, the missionary works to edu- cate the people of Africa, lo raise the pitifully tow literacy rale of thai land. Duggan gave (he mission story "of Tanganyika where, incidentally, the literacy rale is 30 per ccnl. much higher than in (he continent as a whole, cer- tainly higher than the 3 to 5 per 'cent rate in the "rain forest." The German Lutheran w a s the real pioneer in that land, Duggan said. After World War 1 he was replaced by the Amer- ican Lutheran and then by the Soulhern Baptist. The Catholic missionary was there off and on, coming in larger numbers aflcr being driven out of Red China. Of Tanganyika's 9 million peo- ple about 2 million are Chris- tian (divided prelly nearly ev- enly, Protestant and Catholic i, 2 million are Moslem and a mil- lion are pagan. Lutherans and Baptists are in larger numbers t h e r e, he said. Presbyterians, Meth- odists. Assembly of God. and others in other parts of Africa. The Stale Department has since 1957 stepped up its em- phasis on efforts to recruit the new countries to democracy. State's African d i v i s i on has jumped in recent years from a staff of a dozen to ISO. "We have a pretty good bat- ting average now in Duggan said rapping wood as he said it. But the problem is enormous. The two men took.the Congo as an example of the difficul- ties. "Of the people running the- shop there lately, not one had a grandfather who ever saw a wheel. .a piece of paper. .a stone building. .We're trying to compress years into one generation."
