By DeWITT MacKEN^IE The outstanding point of interest lor the Americas in the Argentine revolt is whether it will make for Pan-American sohiiarHy — especially as regards support of the Allied war effort and post-war reconstruction — and the \vay things look it seems likely the new regime will have that tendency. This revolution, like so many of the intriguing South American upheavals, conceasl more tha n it reveals to the outside world. There are many points which aren't yet clear and we shouldn't jump to conclusions. However, one remarks cautiously the revolutionary government appears to be headed by solid citizens who arc trying to escape from what they charge has been a reactionary attitude on the part of President Ramon S. Castillo not only toward foreign relations but domestic affairs. It's no secret, of course, that his insistance on maintaining diplomatic ties with the Axis — last of the • Americas in this category — hns made other Pan-American government regard him coldly. Undoubtedly foreign relations figur e heavily in the calculations of the revolutionists. They appear to feel their country has been playing an isolationist role to her own disadvantage. In this connection I hazard the guess that the straw which broke the camel's back was the fact this great country received no invitation to the recent United Nations conference dealing with postwar food problems. The Buenos Aires newspaper Crilica May 17 was outspoken in condemning Argentina's absence from this vital discussion. Apart from the question of principle, involving Argentina's stand in the war, her financial and trade interests have • been involved heavily. Also, because of her "neutrality" stand she hasn't been eligible for lease - lend aid, and has seen her neighbors improving their military position through this asssitance. 'Then there is, I believe, another important aspect of the revolt which doesn't appear on the surface. The revolution strikes me as being marked with the "leftist" swing which we are seeing in so many countries. By that I don't refer to a radical movement, but to a definite turn away iron-; Mexamericon Light of loyalty shines In this former Mexican's face as he carries flag of his adopted homeland at Los Angeles festival commemorating Mexico's Independence day.

It was a $500 diamond his mother had lost three days before from her ring. control by vested interests. Castillo's opponents claim that his government stood for those interest?. If the new government brings Argentina into the Allied fold it will be a boon for the United Nations. Ever since the war otart-.'d the Argentine has been a hotbed of Axis spying. Raymon Lavalle, former Argentine consular - attache in Tokyo, announced in New York on April 18 that he had resigned from his country's foreign service in protcsl against its neutrality. He declared "the Argentine has been the eyes and ears of the Japanese government in the western hemisphere." Moreover, Germany and Italy cushioned the shock of the war blockade with a small but stc-Ady flow of money and materials from the Argentine. German controlled firms in the Argentine transmitted to Berlin every possible cent of profits through neutral points. Germany's neutral n e i g h b ors in- chases of Argentine products, and creased many fold their purchases of Argentine .products, and none disputed that many of these goods were relayed to the Axis countries. One result of the revolution may be to release a flood of pent- up criticism of the Castillo govern ment. Since December 1C, 1U41, he had ruled under a state of siege "of a preventive character," which forbade criticism of the govern rnent's foreign policy. Who, Me?. •- — Albuqucrcnic, N. M. — P. J. Ar- rcse, resting after lunch, idly watched his truck move away from the side of the porch where he was siting. It was ten minutes later, he told police, when he realzicd that he wasn't in it, and that his wife, the only other person who should be driving it, was in the kitchen wash mu clishcs. Police recovered it from a youthful thief an hour later. Cards Depend on Their Greai Pitcher, Cooper By HUGH FULLERTON, JR. A few weeks earlier in this base ball sesaon, St. Louis Cans were audibly worried about the report that Mort Cooper had a sore arm. Their world champions were trailing the hated Brooklyn Dodgers in the National League race Cooper had taken a couple o sound shellackings and the Car dinal customers figured there wasn't much hope without the full- time services of the big fellow who won 22 games and lost seven during last year's pennant chase. Well, the Cards still arc second by a half game, but if Cooper still has a sore arm. Manager Billy Southworth probably wishcse that all his other pitchers would go out and get ones just like it. For Big Mort pitched his second successive one-hit game last night to beat the Phillies, 5 to 0. He had done the same stunt against Brooklyn Monday. Mori didn't allow a hit until Jimmy Wasdcll singled in the eighth, he gave no walks and he whiffed five. Charlie Fuchs limited the Cards to eight blows, but two ot them — one stretching Stan Musial's streak to 21 consecutive games — produced a pair of third-inning runs and three more came home in the eighth when Ken O'Dca homered to sew up the decision. Meanwhile, winning streaks carried the Pittsburgh Pirates into third place in "the National League and the Detroit Tigers into second in the American. The bold Buccaneers, hanging up their fifth consecutive victory and their eighth in nine games, just lasted to gain a 9 to 8 decision over the New York Giants before a night crowd of 14,120. This put them a half game ahead of the Cincinnati Reds, who took a day off. The Tigers' fourth straight triumph was a 2-1 decision over the Senators before 14,800 Washington fans. Detroit thus moved a half game ahead of the Nats and one and one half games behind the Nesv York Yankees, who homered their way to a 6-4, ten-inning decision over the St. Louis Browns in one of the three daylight games. The biggest floodlight crowd of nil, 18,894, turned out at Philadelphia to sec Jesse Florcs lose his second game after seven straight victories as the Cleveland Indians pulled out a 3-2 decision over the Athletics. Ray Mack's triple, scoring the already - traded Otto Dennng, was the decisive blow in :he eighth inning. The Chicago White Sox, scoring all their runs in the first inning on two of their four hits off Lou Lucier, whipped the Boston Red Sox, 4-3, in the other afternoon contest. Admiral Wins Again "" William Bennett Scoggins, signalman first class of Norman Park, Ga., admits Admiral Nimitz "has got him |usr a little" during horseshoe pitching contest at picnic hosted by commanding officer somewhere in south Pacific.
