Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 8, 1963, Mason City, Iowa JFK warning to Russia See story on page 2 HOME EDITION Kassems government in Iraq under attack 42 chiefs of state since 99 But Paraguay has steadied By RICHARD SPONG Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Paraguay since 189 has had 42 presidents including four in one year How ever from the time Gen At fredo Stroessner seized power in 1954 the landlocked sub tropical country about the size of California has had only one president The formula was simple Stroessner was unopposed in 1954 and 1958 elections In Sundays election Stroes sner is allowing the opposition to put up a candidate a 63 yearold attorney Dr Ernesto Gaviian Even he says I dont think we have the slightest chance of winning Paraguay in many respects is a sort of musical comedy Latin American state It has refused to follow to its sister nations into the 20th Century South of the Rio Grande today fullfledged dictators hold sway only in Haiti Cuba and Para guay The custom of arbitrary rule is more firmly established in Paraguay than in any other Latin American country It has been under military or civilian dictatorship almost continuously since it became independent in 1811 It is hard to get facts from the outside about Stroessners Paraguay For that matter it is not easy inside apparently One correspondent for a North Amer ican newspaper writes of seeing innocent students horsewhipped in the streets and political prisoners also under the lash splitting rocks by hand for the streets of Asuncion His guide tells of Pena Hermosa the Chaco island concentration camp where death is as com mon as leprosy But a few months later an equally responsible observer from the United States reports A reliable foreign diplomat told me that he had soughtin vain for evidence of a concentra tion camp in Paraguay Certainly Paraguay is no hot bed of democracy Its press is controlled although some papers are allowed to criticize the regime Between 40 and 50 per cent of the national budget goes to the military and the police The army is reported to control contraband operations from Puerto Stroessner to Uruguays free port Nueva Palmira Stroessner in 1954 decreed a state of siege which has been renewed every 90 days since The government has been called the most extreme case of predatory praetorianism in all of Latin America Despite his tight rule Stroes sner has received dribbles of aid from the United States that may have helped to keep him in power Of million in military aid allocated for Paraguay in the past 12 years through June 30 1962 some has been delivered Another is allocated for fiscal year 1963 Other postwar aid through last June came to million Why support this mildman nered little dictator The most obvious reason is that although his party is named Colorado or reddish he is staunchly antiCommunist The Communist party was outlawed in October 1955 And while other Latin American nations were backing and filling embarrass ingly in the Cuban crisis Stroessners government an nounced its immediate and un qualified support of President Kennedys stand A less pragmatic reason may be a better one Stroessner is bringing democratic institutions to Paraguay albeit at a glacial pace The alternative to Stroes sner probably would be Para guays accustomed chaos In any event for the past few years the generaldictatorprcsi dent has been echoing the same theme We are progressing and will soon be ready for the luxury of democracy The newspaper that mokes all North lowans neighbors MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 102 MASON
