RAGE SIX BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Resisting European Brand South American Nations Have 0,wn Style By NBA Service South America Is making it clear that if she must have dictatorships. Hie local variety is still preferred to tl)e Imported, It Is slioivn in u Giirvey or pollli:al conditions south ot the Rio Grande. The dramatic stand of President Oetulio Vargas o I Brazil i n squelching a Fascist uprising in precisely Lite same way he r.qnelched a Communist rising a year ago seems to underline South America's determination to stay clear of foreign domination of nny kind. When President Vargns late last year dIssoK'c-d the legislative bodies and proclaimed a ne\v constitution, anxious commentators predicted n Fascist regime to follow. But it didn't follow, and Vargas has given proof that he means business when lie says that no foreign-bucked movement will be allowed to gel n grip on Brazilian politics. Tlie Vargos government in Brazil Is like many others south ot the Rio Grande—It foils slmrl of the democratic ideal. Vargas, provisional president since 1930, was elected by a.Constituent Assembly in 1934 rather than by direct popular vote. He confirmed his. position by the coup of lust, fall, but whatever his present position lacks in pure democratic theory II mtiKes up in determination that it shall be Brazilian. Nationalism Fanned The rise of nationalistic spirit in many South American countries is evident, and tends to assure that even dictatorships will have to slay clear of outride influences. For instance, Argentina, one of the best-governed of the republics, has a law pending which woiilJ restrict suffrage to the native-born. This would cut off from the polls both active Fascists and Communists, most of whom are more or less recent Immigrants. President Roberto M. Ortiz, who became president in 1937, received a majority of; the electoral college vote, though a .more radical rival had a larger popular vote. Both Bolivia and Paraguay, stricken by their gruelling Chaco War, are now ruled by virtual mlll- taty dictators. Efforts to establish soclalistically inclined regimes after thfe war found both too exhausted to' carry on, and Bolivia sank into the amis ot Lieut. Col. German Bysch, one of her foreign military advisers, while in Paraguay a provisional president, Felix Paiva, was pUt in office by a military junta to liquidate socialist experiments. "Bosses" Kule In Peru, in Venezuela, and in Uruguay, presidential terms have been prolonged by, congressional action rather than by direct appea to the volers. Generals Oscar R Benavldte and Eleazar Lopez Contreras and Dr. Gabriel Terra ar safely In the seats of power in the traditional Latin-American mannei • Dictatorships, perhaps, but will the South American rather thai the European flavor. In Cuba, ful- gehcio Batista, that remarkable army non-com who became dicta tor, is planning to suspend demo cratie procedure to Insure himself the presidential title as well as its prerogatives. In Chile, one of the two South American countries with genuine Communist strength, President Do Arturo Alessandrl sits firmly on the lid. In Ecuador, the other "Su preme Chief", Gen. Alberto Enri quez recently freed ploitical prison ers, but announced a "national political purge," which falls' short of the height of democracy. Democracy Carries On Probably the nearest to t American ideal of democracy is Colombia, where President Dr. Alfonso Lopez is definitely the free choice of the people. Guarantees ot individual liberty are more clearly established than in most neighboring countries, but even in Colombia the government has prohibited mass demonstrations as a result of re- .cent student riots. The smaller countries like Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and El Salvador, once so turbulent politically, are now under orderly rule by Presidents Jorge ubico, Tiburclo Carias, Anastasio Somoza, Dcmos- tenes Arosemena, and Maximiliano Afartiiiez, all of whom come far closer to being the popular choice than has been the case in their countries in the recent past. Thus democracy In South America is far from being as dead as it might seem, for many of the dictatorial regimes are admittedly without. a permanent philosophy or plan, but are simply expedients to meet present conditions. Such regimes may always progress slowly toward democratic methods as people fit themselves lor the task. Bounty of $1 Offered ! For Marked Salmon ST. JOHN, N. B.

'<t : • advertising man For over thirty years I have been writing advertisements for national'advertisers — shoes, soap, cereals, automobiles, radios, tobacco, blankets, tooth-powder. To me it is the most fascinating work in the world —learning about the merits of merchandise and then telling people about them —bringing greater comfort, and enjoyment, into people's lives—introducing people to new pleasures, helping them to get the most for their money. Besides being fascinating, it is satisfying. My intimate experience with advertisers has shown me that, except for rare exceptions, the manufacturers and merchants of this nation lean over backwards to be sincere and honest. The law of advertising is simple once one understands its working—the more people know about the merit of a product, the more people buy it. The greater the volume of sales, the less the cost to manufacture. Savings in making mean either lower prices to the consumer or greater value put back into the merchandise. As an advertising man I can sincerely affirm that it pays to read) the advertisements in the newspapers— for news of new things, for news of bargains and savings.
