By RON STEWART Tribune Staff Writer "I really like you for the way r ou live inside, but for your elations with other little :ountries -- 1 don't like it." Sixteen-year-old A l b e r t o r a n c i s co Farias Salgado Alberlo Farias, for short) was peaking, he felt, for many eople in his country. And his lews came from experience -after nearly a year of living n this country with an American family, attending an American public school, and mowing and being friends with American young people. Alberto is an American Field Service student this year at Greeley West High School. He ,s a native of Concepcion, Chile, j 300,000-population city on the coast of the world's third largest copper-producing nation And it is America's relations ivith Chile over copper to which Alberto objects. Copper is Ihile's main export item, and most of it goes (o American ndustry. Alberto says American importers in New York are able :o drive the price of copper down because of their economic security in large copper reserves. Main Reason Chile would like to sell some of its copper to London -- to make the market more stable," Alberto said, "but importers in New York just undersell them and drive them out of the market. 'It's .the main reason why some people in Chile maybe don't like the United States," he said. Alberto explained that he liked and admired the way people live in the United States; this country has facilities Chile would like to have. "But as a person Americans are very different than they are as a country. America has helped us as a country -- but they have also realized a profit from the help they have given us, particularly in the copper industry," he said. Huge Profits Alberto explained that owners of Anaconda Copper Co. reached an agreement whereby to Chile could buy the companies in its country. He said Chile already owns about 25 per cent of the interest in Anaconda and about 51 per cent of the interest in Braden Copper Co. B u t even witli Chile's takeover of the companies, the U. S. interests have already realized hugh profits from copper, Alberto said. Alberto has been living with the William Askew family at 5021 W. 22nd St. The Askews have two children, Tom and Kathy, both students at Greeley West. Alberto's father is owner of a small agricultural supply company in Concepcion. He said his father sells such items as small machines pesticides and farm equipment. It is the only business of its kind in the city, which realizes most of its income from industry and fishing. Jt is Alberto's father's business that has developed his interest in agriculture. He plans attend the University of Concepcion, one of four state universities in the country, and study agronomy. Work for U. N. I would like to come back to the U. S. and maybe work for the United Nations as an agronomist," Alberto said. "I would like to be able to help other small countries in the world develop their agriculture industry." Alberto said he hasn't ad much of an opportunity to visit agriculture enterprises in Weld County, although he is aware that this area is very dependent on its income from agriculture. He said he finds school easier here "mostly because you are free lo choose what you want to take. "In Chile students don't have much of a choice as to what subjects they want to take," h« said. H e is taking physical education, American culture, algebra, physics, English and is member of the Student Council at West. He said his favorite subject is algebra, 'but it is also the hardest." 20 Per Cent Continue He said Americans are very lucky to have the fine educational system they have. He pointed out that in Chile only about 20 per cent of the elementary students are able to go on to the university. "It is mostly a matter of space," Alberto i explained. "Our country just v doesn't have enough money to build more universities." Besides finding fault with American news media because of its lack of concern for news in other countries (an opinion shared by his counterpart from Germany attending Greeley Central High School), Alberto finds most A m e r i c a n s lackadaisical about their own political matters. "Politics are part of the students' interest in Chile," Alberto said. "By the time they are 16 or 17 years old they have already signed up for a political party." Two Choices Al b e r t o explained that Alberto Faria* currently there are two major choices for president of his country -- one of which will be elected in September. Eduerdo' Frei, president for the last six years, is a leftist, · but will not be able, to run- again. Right wing candidate is Jorge Alessandri, while the socialist candidate is Salvador Alende.
