little attention in the bulle tins posted But almost ex clusively the news is the man house there was a guiteral accent strongly suggestive of the German language Another point in common at boll

the propaganda emphasis from both sides of the fence is to create con fidence in ultimate victory Such an appeal seems to have even greater force with respect to the Latin mind than appeals based on morality or ethics The screen ami the press nf course arc only two of the more obvious media if propaganda It manifests itself more subtly in numerous other areas There is for example in Argentina is in all other parts of South America a vigorous attempt on the part of the Germans to con trol maybe it wpuld lie better o say the Germans arc trying to continue their control of aviation I find a rather universal as sumption down here that United States entry into the war is in evitable The only difference of opinion is as to time But on the question of what lies ahead for Ar gentina it is difficult to get an expression The attitude seems to be one of watchful waiting based on an assumption that the winner be it Britain or Germany will to come to Argentina for much of its foodstuffs and
