Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 18, 1939, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HARLOH E R HIST MEM ART OSPT Of IOWA COUP DES MOINES U THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS MASON CITY THI BRIGHT JPOT XLVI FIVE CENTS A COPV MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY NOVEMBER 18 1939 THIS PAPEtl CONSISTS OV TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 35 Tolerance for S A Is Sought By CHARLES P STEWART Central Press Columnist Uncle Sam having taken the lead in the development of closer PanAmerican political commer cial and mutually defensive rela tionships our Yankee educators now are intensifying a not alto get her new movement to ward a better cultural ac q u aintanceship among the 21 New World re publics A b i g gather ing of them was held in Washington recently to for mulate plans in this direction It was very successful The PanAmerican cultural get together tendency dates back to early days folloving the war of 191418 President John F OHara of Notre Dame university was a Father OHara prominent figure at the late Wash ington conference Father OHara a wonderful man is a pioneer in the campaign for New World cul tural solidarity I first met him in Argentina in about 1920 when he was below the Equator to ar range for an interchange of stu dents between North and Latin American educational institutions He was a bit ahead ol his time then Today the right juncture seems to have arrived State Secretary Hull reminded the conferees that our hemisphere may become the trustee of the whole globes civilization Latin American savants are sympathetic 4 Need to Be Tolerant But in certain respects we Yankees need to be tolerant of our neighbors Our and their stand ards differ in queer ways I recall a threecornered chat I had in Buenos Aires wit dent Equadorian one Achilles Lopez and an Argentine Jose Virasoro a member of the greai Argentine presidential house oi Mitre Lopezs father had been his countrys consul general in New York Achilles was brought up there He understood the Unitec States as well as I did Neverthe less essentially he was Latin Virasoro didnt know Yankeeland one single cents worth Lopez was explaining to him how odd we are Suppose he said that a Yankee political party were to nominate for president an indi vidual who it could be proved had besides his own wife two 01 three supplementary families I would ruin his chances of elec tion Why exclaimed V i r as o r o shocked Whats a mans privati life to do with his qualification for public office Of course agreed Lopez if ridiculous but thats the Yankei complex Naturally the Latins ought t make allowances for us as well a we for them Still its to be re membered that were so big as t take on an air of some superiorly The Latins resent it In Business Matters The Latin American business man is kinda funny Up here if two businessmen make a bargain they like to put it in writing to obviate the risk of a future misunderstanding The Latins verbal pledge is his word of honor Hell strain a point to make it evident that hes keep ing the spirit of his dicker But if he signs a contract he reckons that lies entitled to outswap the other chap the latter having been put on notice to guard his own inter est Ive had a lot of experience at this Ive had plenty of Latin Ameri cans flimflam me on written con tracts I never had one bunco me on an oral premise X V Criminal Procedure Our AngloSaxon notion is that if a mans pinched on a criminal charge hes supposed to he puilty until hes been proved to be inno cent Thats true But the minute he says lies in nocent the burden is on his ac cuser to show that hes guilty If the accuser shows again that hes guilty its assumed that hes guilty Then if he counters this evidence once more its taken for granted that hes innocent It isnt much different from our system If youre pinched for an aliened traffic law violation the cops charge against you is taken for granted unless you can prove the MORE
