MONDAY EVENING; APRIL 29; 1943 T U C S O N D/MLY C I T I Z E N PAGE 23 -CHUtn Photo. HARRY ACKERMAN . ' · 1 , ' ! ' , Ackerriian Reports On 6 Alliance 9 By DALE WHTNER "Front page headlines don't ·cream the success of the Alliance for Progress as they do the troubles of revolution- worn Latin America. Our victories are; quiet ones In the minds of men." Fresh from nearly a year on President Kennedy's New Frontier, former Pima County Atty. Harry Ackerman was talking about his new lob as a top adviser in the Alliance for Progress program. "PEOPLE HAVE gotten the Idea that the Alliance is just a giveaway program," Acker- jnan complained. "But it isn't. As it stands now it is a 10-year, $100 billion self- help program in which the United States is the junior partner in a realistic plan to bring social and economic progress to Latin America. "And most of the money that will be involved -- $80 billion in fact--will be generated within-'the participating countries themselves." According to Ackerman, the remaining $20 billion will come-from private investment sources in this country, Europe and Japan. Many of the investments will be guaranteed by the U. S. government. After serving 10 months as ft staff liaison officer for the Agency for International Development in Washington, D.C., Ackerman was recently named congressional adviser . to Teodoro Moscosa, US. coordinator for the Alliance program. The former county prosecutor said that after only one year of operation, the program, which was proclaimed by President Kennedy at Punta del Este, Uruguay in August, 1961, is still in its "formative stage." "AND IT WOULD be premature to attempt to judge it or say what its final results will be," he said. "But our hope is that within 10 years many of the 20 participating countries south of the border will be ready to take on the problem of their continued development by themselves." Ackerman pointed out that of the $900 million current annual budget for the program, $550 million is allotted for long-term development loans designed to bolster the sagging economies of each country. "This will be done by encouraging investment in diversification," he said, noting that many Latin American economies are dependent on single products such as tin or coffee. In Arizona for a series of talks, Ackerman acknowledged that two major problems are: (1) achieving political stability in the Latin countries and (2) convicing the Latin-American c a p i t a l i s t that it is his responsibility to invest in his own country instead of sending his money overseas. "OF COURSE these two problems can be viewed as one and the same. Once political stability is attained it will be a lot easier to get private investors from both Inside and outside the country." Speaking in long range terms, Ackerman declared "We are not trying to shape 20 little Americas down there by forcing things down their throats. What we are trying to do is encourage the social and economic reform that is a necessary breeding ground for democracy. "But it will be a long, hard Job," he warned. "The post-war Marshall Plan for Europe was an easy task by comparison with the goals set forth in the Alliance. At least in Europe we had a foundation on which to build a structure of economic progress. Here we have not even a foundation," Ackerman said. Ackerman said that 75 per cent of all foreign assistance funds given out by the U.S. government -- nearly $4 billion this year--is spent "right her* In the good old U.S.A. for goods and services." Foreign aid Is not a big part of the balance of pay- problem, ha said. CHUCK STEAK TENDER, JUICY Full of Rich Beef Flavor Ib.
