One night last Spring a small group of men came to the bank of the river Plata, which flows between A r-gentina and Uruguay, and at a point where it is about 40 miles wide. There was a small fishing boat waiting. There were whispered goodbyes and handshakes. One of those on the bank stepped forward and entered the boat. It was pushed off. For a while it was a vague, departing shadow. Then the mists and the darkness swallowed it up. The small group on the bank watched until it was not to be seen. Blinking away tears they, too, quit the scene. Back in and about Buenos Aires, at the railway stations, especially the suburban ones, and at the airports, large and small, soldiers with guns waited. But the man they sought was In the fishing boat on the dark river. That man was Dr. Alberto Gainza Paz, father of eight children, member of one of the oldest and proudest families in Argentina and publisher of the politically independent newspaper with a tradition of editorial integrity since its founding in 1869. Peron Since 1943 when Juan Peron seized power, and took over in totalitarian fashion, including the courts, silencing of Gainza Paz and La Prensa had been two of Peron's chief objectives. The constitution of Argentina 1 copied from that of the United States. It contains all the guarantees of personal lioerty and freedom found in our own Bill of Eights. Peron, who had favored' the Nazis until the war turned against them, copied Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. Their countries, too, had constitutions. Laws were passed. Peron had silenced the courts, and suspended all civil rights. The laws are untested. Police take people to jail at any hour if they differ with the Peron policies. There is no bond, no habeas corpus though the constitution provides for both. Slowly the newspapers were silenced. General taxes were adopted but applied only to those newspapers which were in opposition. Safety restrictions and building codes impossible of observance were adopted, but applied only to those newspapers and businessmen who did not contribute money and support to Peron. The Constitution of Argentina iorbids all this. But there was and is no appeal. Method At last there-Avas left only one formidable opposition the newspaper La Prensa, its editor and its staff. Peron stepped up his pressure. He framed a strike and pickets by the street vendors. He was shocked by the La Prensa staff pressmen, printers, stereo-i typers, reporters they all crossed the phony line and went to work. They were attacked by hoodlums in the Peron mob. A j pressman was killed. Fifteen i ether employees were injured. j But they got out the paper. Peron couldn't understand it. But he acted. He closed the paper because of the "riots." Dr. Gainza Paz said Peron had no authority to pass the "law" under which Peron acts a law which forbids anvone to criticize a public official. They sent for him. He received warning just in time to leave his house. A few nights later there was that scene at the river. Now, Dr. Gainza is being honored in this country by newspapers and all those who believe in freedom. There is here at Northwestern University a special program there will be others elsewhere in the future. . Dr. Gainza believes in that future if we are all alerted. The people in Argentina now chaff under the conditions imposed. The news cannot be printed. There are acute shortages of Jnany consumer goods. And all the while Peron screams to the people that secret enemies, plotters and conspirators are about to destroy the country the familiar device to take the minds of the people off Peron's tyranny. In this country the people are guaranteed free newspapers, free speech, and free assembly. There . are evidences here and there in our own country that power-drunk office holders and political schemers think they, too, should be able to blackmail the American press. Are the people tired of hearing bout it? Dr. Gainza asks them to look southward.

The country is emerging from the "toolirg-up" stage on many military items and is at the threshold of volume production, Wilson said in his quarterly report. He acknowledged "some exasperating slippages" in original planning schedules, but said some items were ahead of schedule. "SLIPPAGE" One evidence of the "slippage" is postponement of the build-up peak. In his July 1 report, Wilson said that plans called for total national security spending to reach an annual rate of more than $65, 000,000,000 by July, 1952. His report Sunday said that peak would come a year hence. The mobilization chief labeled his report "three keys to strength production, stability, free-world unity," and emphasized thes points: The period of greatest stringency has now begun for metal-using industries: complacency about inflation would be a mistake; unity of the entire free world is the key to full strength mobilization against Communism. AVAILABILITY With respect to stability, Wilson declared: "This fundamental fact must be kept constantly in mind by every person: We are passing through a period when the goods and erv-ices available to the American people cannot be significantly increased. "Any person who is in a posi tion to demand ior nimsell a greater share of the limited supply of goods and services and who enforces his demand, whether through unreasonable pricing, through strikes, or by other means jfc can only do so by taking those goods and services away from i someone else. We cannot permit ! the strong to trample on the weak ;in this emergency." CONSTANT VOLUME Wilson said he believed the "total volume" of goods and services for consumers would remain constant dwring 1952. but the would not be but supplies foods should of be government to reassert China's the same. Goods using metal will desire for a "peaceful settlement" in the Korean war but to attack American good faith in the long drawn out armistice conversations at Kaesong.
