CHARLES P STEWART f ASHINGTON CPA Fol lowing up Pres ident Roose velts Pan American tour For heavens sake dont re fer to an Arg entine as an Argentinian That would be on a par with speaking of an American as an Ameri kinian A masculine Argentine is an Argentine One of the gentler sex is an Argentina Considered collectively it is all right to call them Argentines But Argentinians The republic would be almost ready to go to war before having that designa tion wished upon them I wouldnt blame them It would be like call ing us Yankarinos City of Good Buenos Aires is pronounced Bwaynoas accent on the first syllable Aheerays accent on the second It means good We wouldnt express it in the plural but the Spanish do arid thats their business The air at B is not par ticularly better than

Uruguay capital Montevideo consider themselves the very pick of Latin Americans They are it is true pretty pure Europeans Maybe they are not more so than the Argentines The Argentines dispute it It is a moot point Anyway the two republics are rivals as to quality Some of the other countries are largely black like Brazil Some have a strong Indian infusion in their various populations Argentina and Uruguay are predominantly more on North American standards Favors Argentina They want to be considered on that basis I myself think that Argentina outclasses Uruguay it is so much larger Brazil the most populous of the southern republics and in area larger than the continental United States traditionally is the most friendly to Yankeedom But Brazil is unreliable revo lutionary Argentina and Uruguay have their revolutions also but they are not genuine overturns they are more in the nature of reelec tions Duels Often Fousrhl Public men have duels in South America They are not the harmless kind with which France is familial participants are killed in them It is necessary to consider that a champion of Yankee friendship may be killed in an encounter with an opponent and materially change a whole political situation Foolish Tariffs Economic factors likewise enter into the equation Tariffs particularly InterAmerican trade has inter fered ridiculously with inter American business For example imagine the bar ring of Central American imports a bananas in order to force American fruit caters to eat American apples It was attempt td during the last SmootHawley protectionist campaign
