SfA*, Monday, November 29,198' Writer Criticizes Radio Broadcasts Says the Monroe Doctrine Being Undermined by Broadcasts By MORGAN M. BEATTY AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON—The news that Bra- iSl has Joined the growing list of Latin American dictatorships has brought home to official Washington generally a fact that has long harassed the state detjartment's inner circle, namely: Radio waves are constantly under- rnining the Monroe Doctrine—our time-'honored barrier against European political systems. (In case you've forgotten, Presidenl Monroe told European nations 1M years ago that we would keep hands off Europe, and expected, in return that they would keep their colonizers and their political systems out of the •western hemisphere). But here is what has been happening: 1. European radio stations—especially German, Italian" and Russian—have been broadcasting news and entartain- ment programs to Latin Americans in their own languages for several years. 2. These broadcasts naturally rfelect -fascist and communistic systems in a highly favorable light and constantly Use labels and terms that go with those systems. 3. Some South American newspapers pick up this information daily and re-distribute it in printed form. All of this means that the Monroe Doctrine is daily suffering erosion from Europe, and yet the Doctrine is not being violated. Any nation may broadcast information and entertainment.. "' Question of Terms MeanwhiSa, South Americans are growing more and more familiar with fascist and communist ideas and labels, such as "the corporative state," "centralized control." "economic expansion for the state," and the like. One unofficial authority in Washington, who is in a position to analyze first-hand reports from South America, puts it like this: "The fact is that the South American nations commonly labelled fascist are not fascist in the Italian sense; nor is the Latin American group that bears the communistic in the Russian sense. South American dictatorship now are what they always were—minority groups or strong-arm leaders controlling nations with the aid of armies." Here's where the rub comes: United States officials—and many business men, for that matter—fear that the constant use of the political language and labels oi Europe ultimately may lead South American nations and the world at large to believe communism and fascism of the European variety actually have taken root right at our own doorstep. If that should occur, then these ticklish questions would have to be answered: Ties Still Strong Would European fascist and communist nations be able to gain an economic perch in South America at the expense of the great democracies? And, more important, would such a movement finally force the United States either to defend the Monroe Doctrine or cease to consider it as a matter of foreign policy? "Only the future can tell, but for the time being it can be said on reliable authority that the economic ties between the United States and South America are holding fast. Brazil, the latest South American nation that has reverted to dictatorship, has taken great pains to assure the United States that it has not gone fascist, contradictory as that may seem. 'Likewise, Argentina's President Augustin P. Justo reminded the "fascists" of his country recently that its natural economic ties were with two powerful democracies, Great Britain and the United States. As for the wide gulf of language and culture that separates the United States from South America, a beginning has been made.

The seat cushion is full width but the scat back is divided. When either section is tilted forward it also swings Inward due to diagonal hinging. This provides n wide pa.«.«ase-.vaj | on either sido between the seal back and the car wall, through which passenger- can step Into tha rear without crowding. This seat design, believed to be new in the industry, enhances the practicability of the Tudor model. American conference was the Presi- lent of the Democratic United States.

Its radio program, "Brave New World," is oroadcast on a network of 80-odd stations every Monday night. Radio and News There's another ace in the hole. The United States has five short-wave radio bands set aside by international agreement for non-commercial broadcasting to South America. The federal radio commission has started hearings to decide whether private broadcasters will use those bands. And at least one congressman is agitating a bill to put the government into the pan-American radio broadcasting field. American news associations and agencies are sending news dispatches to South American newspapers daily —unhampered, however, by any argument for any political system. It is possible we'll be listening to South American opera stars one of hese days, and South Americans will going wild over baseball. . . . Time will tell.

D. Barrow's office building at Ozan for many years has been torri down by John Barrow, now owner of the Barrow property, and the materials from the old building arc being used by Mr. Barrow to build a tenant's house. The Barrow office was located by the J. D. Barrow residence. Long years ago in the Ozan community all of tho prosperous, active landlords had office buildings constructed near the family homes. In these offices all of the business of the farms was carried on. Often the chief colored servant had his rooming quarters in the massa's office so that he could guard it and its contents. Many happy hours have some of the O/.an men and women, who arc now in their 40's and 50's, spent as children playing in father's old office, listening to the roar and crackling of the fire in the large office fireplace, anticipating and enjoying the stories and leS- sons taught them by father while he was not too busy to chat with the youngsters. With the changes that have been made in the farmstead and in farming for the past two or three decades, most of these farm office buildings have been torn down, but their influence on the youngsters who had the privileges of sitting by their firesides will linger on and on.

F orto offers two new cars for 1938 —the Standard Ford V-8 and tho De Luxe Ford V-8. They are different in appearance — but built to the same high standard of mechanical excellence — on the same chassis. Because people liked our 1937 car so well, they bought more than of any other make. They liked its looks, its smooth, economical performance, and the way it handled. We have improved on that car in the newly styled Standard Ford V-8. 13ut some folks wanted slill more size and style, with the same Ford advantages. For them, we designed a new De Luxe line. The De Luxe Ford V-8 Sedans are longer with more room, larger luggage space, and finer appointments. De Luxe cars are equipped with the 85- horsepower engine only. The Standard is even lower priced than the De Luxe. It has graceful new lines and well-tailored interiors. It gives you again a choice of V-8 engine sizes — 85 horsepower or 60 horsepower. Before Ford made V- type 8-cylinder engines available to every one, they were used only in expensive cars. Since then, four million Ford owners have learned the genuine enjoyment of driving an eight-cylinder car with all- around economy. The thrifty "60" engine, especially, makes possible in Standard models a very low first cost and equally low operating cost. BOTH LINES LOW PRICED Wilh two distinct designs, two engine sizes and Iwo price ranges, you'll find a 1Q38 Fort} car to fit your needs c.xai-ily. Whic ever one you choose you get the same proved Ford features. P R I ( F ^ FOB C * RS DELIVERED IN IV I V. C J DETROIT—TAXES EXTRA Standard Ford V-8 (60 lip.)—Coupe, $599; Tudor, $611; Fordor, $689.
