COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 88,IMi Peron's End Makes Small Change In South American Political Way WASHINGTON— (NBA) — The ititistics of democracy in Lttin America will change only "lightly in the wake of the' ouster of President Juan Peron.

Antasio Somoza has been a virtual dictator for the past 17 years, his regime has been extremely successful for the country. When Somoza took power in 1938, failing to report an accident, driving without a license, leaving , the scene of an accident and failying to register as a known criminal. The Dominion of Canada was established on July 1, 1867. Nicaragua was considered one of the most backward nations in the group. There were only seven miles of road. Now the country has 9,000 miles of improved highway, plus a greatly improved educational system, among other things. Costa Rica is another bright spot in Central America as far as the emergence of democracy goes. In 1948 President Jose Figueies'led forces to defeat a Communist- backed movement to nullify presidential elections and establish a leftist distatorship. Today the country enjoys freedom of expression, press and other safeguards which make dictatorship impossible. The Communist Party has been outlawed : since 1948. Figueres recently attacked the Communists in a strong statement and pledged they would never turn Costa Rica into another Guatemala such as they did under Arbenz. * * • Venezuela's Gen. Marcos Perez- Jimenez came into power as part of a military Junta in 1950. He was elected president in 1953, and while many observers refer to his regime as a benevolent dictatorship, it has plowed Venezuela's oil riches back into a tremendous public works program, tossed but Communists and put the country on probably the best financial footing in Latin America. In spite of the complex, muddled state of political science in Latin America generally, State Department experts are not too displeased with the trend of democracy since World War n. And they naturally hope that the overthrow of Peron will end up being a net gain for the caflse of freedom in the world. Regardless of the number of die- tatorships which exist and the num- her of military coups taking place, | the need for deferring to the principle of general elections and establishment of a constitution is an encouraging sign. It is expected that this will take place in Argentina when the situation is stabilized.
