Tlie problem of United States - intervention in revolutions in [ Latin American countries was "described hero Friday by a professor of Latin American .studies as "a policy that is iv contrast with our vital interests *· in the area," Dr. Cole Blaster,' professor ol . LiilJfi American studies at the University o[ Pilisburg and ar ^ acknowledged leader in his field told a University o[ Arkansas , audience t h a i - the American ' policy Q[ Entci'vchlion and Liu .' use of covert political activities ' "violates our ethical, our lega "'and our political standards." "If we don't behave properly how do we oxpecl'lesser nation r in muc]t loughor situations li '·b e h a y e any differently'!' Blasier asked. "Arc we the one to be condescending aboi ihan troops in Angola? It's I ke the kettle calling the pot luck. I don't like to see Cuban roops En Angola cither.

"There has i no discussion of us giving JLJ control of the canal. We are inly discussing Panamanian participation in operating the canal. I believe we should lei .hem participate." As for Ronald Reagon's charge that Ihe United Slates built, paid Eor and owns the canal, Blasier said we mus consider the problem o sabotage. "The main Ihing ii to keep the canal open. It ii stupid lo think we can prcven sabotage forever. We must g about it diplomatically." Blasier discussed the Atneri can involvement in bringiii; own the Madero government! Mexico, our Involvement in Bay .ot Pigs in Cuba and tlcstabilization of Ihe Allcrule government in Chile as pecific examples of the Amcri- an policy ol intervention. He islcd four Important reasons r our intervention. Firsl, Blasier said, is the "immense disparity of power be .ween the United States and Latin American countries." He said .he best way to prevent inter- 'ercnce is to have less disparity of power. He adIcd thai Latin America "we are often our own worst enemy." The second reason, Blasier said, is' business inleresls. How ever, he ;aid, these are onlj factor En "low IcnsEoi situations." He said, "Whwi the American public is not con cerncd, business interesls can play a role..

Into o brand new capital city we're building just to be a capital city. It hasn't been easy to figure out where it should be. Jefferson and Hamilton disagree on most things, but they did agree that it wasn t fair to keep a capital nearer New England than the South. They agreed to move the government out of New York and into Philadelphia for ten years while our new Federal City was being readied. It's a grand city, even though it is a bit isolated in the swamps. We've hired a Frenchman to lay it out. Had a contest for the best design for the President's Palace. The cornerstone of our Capitol building was laid years ago, and much of it is finished. There's a population of 3,210. And because it doesn't belong to any one of our colonies, but to all of us, we've given it a special namhe District of Columbia.
