virulent antiAmericanism is so small as to provoke immediately the question as to why it exists at all There are no Communists to speak of in Nigeria American aid has been both effective and until now appreciated There are no outstanding quar rels between the two nations The American ambassador is knowledgeable and personable and the U S Information Serv ice is robustty staffed with nine persons WHATS WRONG Although a studied bluntly honest look at how the US got itself a bad press recently hinges partly on the air of resignation of many US officials about the ir reversibility of the

effective dis seminator here of the idea that the US killed Lumumba is Marshal Kcbby the pen name for the Nigerian editor of the Daily Telegraph He is an ob ject example of how relentless hammering of a theme can make headway despite the seeming inadequacy of the theme In an interview Kcbby took the position that while Lumum ba was killed on the orders of Africans the United Nations should have prevented his ar rest in the first place Kcbby then charged that thCfUN isj an American puppet so America is to blame for Lumumbas murder Whether the Voice of America ever tried to set the record straight on the Congo is a moot point as no ordinary Nigerian with an ordinary radio evcrj hears US broadcasts In fact it is easier here to time in to Radio Peiping than to Hie Voice of America
