But he will have cause to think "OUB State Department for its lett : haivded and; unintentional campaign, help. , The State Department White Paper, which ' Blasted the tie between the Nazis and Argentina's government of ' colonels, seems to have had the un- ; : happy effect of uniting the Argentine nation by insulting it. Much the same- -thing- apparently has happened in Spain since the three-power invitsi- • tion to the Spanish people to get rid of Generalissimo Franco. , Ardent nationalism has no place in today's interdependent world, bat it remains as alive as ever. The emotions of patriotism and chauvinism are stubborn and hard to clown. Because of them, the most thoroughgoing scoundrel of a dictator can become, practically a ' native son when he is athickked from without. America's indictment of Peron and the> thisee-power indictment of Franco , were justified. These mpi\. arc admirers : of and collaborators with a despicable, I. defeated enemy and a despicable way of life which still flourishes. Their continued; presence in power affronts not only their own people, but all the people of what we hope will become Ji more decent world.. Yet when these obvious facts are stated bluntly, they serve to move |(-,many anti-totalitainans to rally round the dictators' standard with shouts of "outside interference" (in Spain) and "Yankee imperialism" (in. Argentina). Some of the shouts may clock a feeling of shame that such dictatorships have been allowed* to continue, and that outsiders have felt called upon to protest. But others are undoubtedly sincere. . The'trouble is that our. good intentions are doubted abroad. Justifiable attempts at moral: suasion are called interference. We try to help two people regain the freedoms for which the war was fought, and we are suspected of wanting to dominate Argentina and to get our finger in the Siwnish pie. National pride' has been aroused in both countries, with the roKiilt that we appear to have lost prestige and to have strengthened the dictators. So now what do we do? Apparently nothing—unless wo wish to embarrass our friendly neighbor, Britain. For a hungry Britain needs food 1'roni tho Argentine and fruits from Spain. A war-weary British industry needs Spain's superior ore. A war-weakened British economy doesn't want to, lose the multibillion-dollar British investments in Argentina. Economic sanctions, logically tho next step against the arrogant diclators, would put 1 the United Kingdom in a worse plight fhac its present ono. Thus there ,is no strong backing for our strong words. Wo have stuck our netk out in two countries. The situation offers tho olcl choice of put up or shut up. But America hasn't done either one. We have been right in principle and inept in practice— with the result that we may look a little foolish in the whole matter.

The women it Port Drake had welcomed Ann o their midst, but soroeSbw she didn't find an intimate friend among them. They were pleasant, but rather-unimportant. It was nice to have them there, while she dispensed lea and sandwiches and cookies, and amusing to listen to Iheir chatter. They didn't lionize —he had been around too long to have that sort of importance for Port Drake. Directly-or indirectly, Ann found out what Port Drake thought of her—and of her house She gathered bits hero and there —people on the terrace didn't realize how clearly their voices carried to tho kitchen, where Am was fixing sandwiches.

Perhaps, lha pleasanlcst afternoons were the ones when there were just the llvrec ot them— Susie and Colin and herself. Susie was a darling, and it was tun to have her around.. She enjoyed being Susie's mentor—never before had she realized how much she had missed through not having a younger sister.
