She believes her programs have done a great deal to encourage "gogd will," and has proof of it in thousands of appreciative letters. As a good "ambassadress" there arc two things she always remembers: "To give the South Americans back a little of their own culture on every broadcast." And "to talk to them as a friend or relative who i.s in New York on a visit, and is anxous to tell "all" to the folks back home."

They arc women who spread themselves so thin over their causes, clubs, and "connections" that they don't bear any weight anywhere. They haven't time for their children. For instead of being mothers their children they arc off hearing a "perfectly fascinating'' discussion on child psychology. They haven't time for their husbands — for if they aren't ucctually at of the things I would like to do," and then a proud list of all the past week's activities. All these women feel one way about the woman who says that she must leave the bridge table or the club meeting in time to be home when her children get home from school. They think she is stupid and a poor, misguided "typical housewife." It never occurs to them that per- ' tffi J£ haps she is determined to be a specin- ' tyff list—to concentrate on one thing and "•j" do that well.

Andre and she i.s used to diplomatic titles, real as well as. honorary, like her own. For as a child she lived in Belgium where her father served n.s ambassador from Coast Rica.

Mit's Andre wraps UD the North American culture .she is dispensing in period Spanish in five different weekly programs, "The Woman in the Home," "The Pools of America," "Pro- mending with Andre and Ari/.a."
