SATUJIDAY^DECRMRER <l, I'm IliTfilllO BIiYTHEVILLB. (ARK,) COURIER NRW9 When Roosevelt Visited Vargas n Seeks To Offset Overseas i Influences In South American Countries This is Hie weonj of two sliii-ies on Die ama/in> toliticil 1 situation In South America with its' threat of aver.-fas i«ltu«-nce. By \VI1 I.IS THORNTON NIIA Service Stall' Corresuondc'U The United Slates Is not goini to "loss in Its hand" in the Soiiili Ami.rican game without a slr-iB- ele. And It holds some strong cards. Two primary interests have nl- vvays influenced the playing ol those cards. One was the Monroe Doclrine, now a Pan,-American policy, which forbids overseas ,ia- ilons from getting a territorial foothold in Ihe Americas. The other was trade. Today the t'n p o are closely linked together. German. Italian nnd Japanese efforts to get South American (rade are one witii-their "cultural penetration," and tht.'lr t-lTorls to exert a domestic political influence which will itelt bring more trade. Mast of the "totalitarian", methods are not available to the United States. But it has other methods, and excellent ones. The Rooseveltinn "good neighbor" policy has rubbed out much of the distrust which South and Central America has long held for "The Colossus of the North." And it 'comes at a tune when ihe failure of the League of Nations has disillusioned many in South America about'associations in that quarter. The good-will and' disinterestedness of the United States is trusted as never before. Now It's Machinery Trade' tics with the United States are still strong. Much of| the trade taken over from the I warring nations of Europe during the World War remains with, '.he United States. But the nature of that - trade is changing. Up to 1920, nearly all trade of South American nations was in the export of raw materials, and import of basic manufactured goods. They n-ould send out coi- ton and get back shirts. Now the leading countries are becoming industrialized. They make their own I shirts. . But somWday lias to sell them the., shirt-making machinery, and it jnigM^as well be the United sta ^'.;<l$$5S: change is followed by. a rise in the standard of living. ' and the southern countries begin to be a market for machinery, luxuries and 'specialized products." . The magnificent airway that Pan-American fluiif into the teeth of the depression not only »irdles the.continent, but brings Buenos Aires within six days of N«w York instead .of 16 days, ft has done wonders in making So'ith America "United States conscious." It has also opened up a yood market for machinery by making spare parts quickly available To make the moat of this -id- vanfage, airmail postage to Centra] • and South America was --»t about 32 per cent December 1. Competition threatens in this field from an Italian line just granted a concession by Argentina rjru- Buay and Brazil, linking Rome rlj- rtctly to the continent. A Temporary Boost American movies have always been popular to the south. ,ind have led many to study English as their "second language" rather than French or German. Here again Fascist influence is seen in the barring of "The Road Back" and "They Gave Him a Gun" in Brazil and Chile as -"hampering the development of a sound patriotic mind." German and Italian movies are not apt to offend on that score. The German "baiter" expedient of buying' with "ASK!" marks which may be spent only in Germany has given that country a temporary boost in the south American market. Last year it pushed the United States out of first place as chief exporter to Brazil and Chile. But a big deal with Germany to swap 100.000 bags of Brazilian coffee for German products was canceled last year because of dissatisfaction of Brazil. This summer the United states granted n gold credit to' Brazil «nd made a new trade agreement condemning "outside competition directly subsidized by government" This was a direct slap at Germany, which through government subsidy has been undercutting all competition in the South America!: field by from 25 to 40 per cent In October the United . Stales however, regained the Icnrt ns chief exporter lo Argentina. Despite a German trade mission in 1934, the Nazi trade scheme lias not fitted into Argentina's needs, which dovetail better with the United States. Italy Spares No Tiie place where the United States Is definitely behind is In naval and military missions and lesultaht sales of arms. A naval' mission is now Ui Brazil, but the proposal to lend destroyers has- snagged on the recent political' overturn there. | Germany or Italy will be happy to oblige, however, If the deal with the United States falls through, t'ACETHM* Listening intently to President Vargas of Brazil is President Roosevelt of the United States in this ictiire made just a year ago at a reception dlnnjr In Rio (in Janeiro, it was on this tour that Pivsl- •Icnl Hoosevell made his plea to South America lor "Ihe democratic form of constitutional renrescn'.u- ive government."
