Wr cannot fail—I arn sure we not fail." SAN JUAN. P. R., Feb. 21. (UP —President Truman began his tou of the Caribbean today with a plea to the world to follow the example of the United Slates and Puerto Rico in "the democratic way of collaboration between friendly peoples." He spoke briefly upon arriving ai the Isle Grande airport outside San Juan where he was greeted oy Jesus T. Pinero and a large oup of Puerto Rican officials and unmanders of American armed rce units in this area. The president flew here from Key 'est, Fin., and planned lo spend le day. He will visit St. Thomas In ic Virgin Islands tomorrow, and ail Monday 10 Ihe nearby Island of f. Croix for a brief .stop before niing back toward Cuba and thc .S. Naval base at Guanlanamo ay. Speaking shortly after he stepper om his personal plane, the Sacrc.J ow, Mr. Truman reiterated his beef in .self-government for Puer'.o iico and hailed the appointment o: ^incro, the first native governor s a step in the right direction. Praising thc relations between the sland people and the governmen Washington, thc President sale his "Democratic . . . collabara represented "what the Amcr can people are trying to encourag 1 n the world at large."' He offered thc cooperation be tween Puerto Rico and this conn ry as an example of the fact tha 'differing languages and diffenn cultural backgrounds arc not a obsUcle to democratic unity." Mindful that most Puerto" Ricai: •peak Spanish and that their cul ture is esscnially Spanish in it origin, lie added that "such diffci cnces can pro^•idc the basis for richer and stronger democracy." Mr. Truman wa.s lavish in iv praise of the Puerto Ricans 1 reccr economic accomplishments. T.; much lias been said about/ their problems and not enough abou; then 1 achievements, ihc President said. He spoke particularly of how they have raised wages and living standards, developed free .schools, highways, hospitals and utilities. Even with progress, however, economic conditions in Puerto Rico are what would be regarded in ih:s country as very low. Latest Interior D:;:ai imenl figures showed that ihc average agricultural wage is 18.4 cenL 1 ; an hour, with coffee plantation workers gelling as low as 11,2 cents. 1 iH'omes Arc Very Low* Of -100,000 families on the island. 85 per cent have an income of omy a few hundred dollars a year. An:] their diet consists principally cf rice, beans, bread, coffee and dried codfish which they were taught lo cat in the days when America :i sailing vessels skimmed throvigh the islands, picking up cargoes of sugar and rum. Thr pir:;klp"tU'.s talk naturally \vns aimed primarily at thc people of Puerto Rico. Consequently he devoted himself almost entirely to island problems, staling that cooperation between the federal and insular government* should increase. 11 y He* Chaney {United I'rcss Staff Canc spoiutcnl) j WASHINGTON. Feb. 21 <UPW Insurgent Southern Democrats pui. a chip on their shoulders today and all but dared the Democratic high command to knock it off. "We aren't out to make; R trade," insisted Rep. William M. Colmer, D.. Miss. Thc Southern con Kress men. he said, will demand "satisfaction" from Dcmocralic National Chairman J- Howard McOrath on I heir stand that President Truman should withdraw his civil rights program. That satisfaction, Colmcr added, will be the price of Southern sun port Tor Mr. Truman in the 1948 residential race. Colmcr is chairman of n Brour f about "5 house Democrats op- osed to the President's civil right;- roposals. He planned to appoint committee today to pom a detention of Southern governors who ill confer with McGrath and oth- r party leaders Monday. ' About 50 of the Southern congress' sen from II slates adopted a res lutlon yesterday warning Ihc aci imlstratlon thnl it is jeoparcUzlni Democratic Party unity by spon oring anti-poll tax, anti-lynchhi| ,nd anti-discrimination lefilslatioi: The Southerners said (hoy are eady (o fight nil such measures to he last ditch. Republicans, meantime, were dog their bit to keep Ihe war ins Democratic factions at each other's thionts. Rep. Clifford P. Case. R.. N. J., saiil his House Judiciary Subcommittee would meet next Wednesday to auprovp n.n anti-lynching bill along tht lines recommended by Mr. Truman. However, GOP leaders denied there is any nuillee aforethought in rushing the anti-lynching bill to the House flour. But they said they see no reason lo hold back just because the Democrats are feuding over Ihe issue. A senate judiciary sub coin mil tec wound up hearings yesterday an anti-lynctUng bill similar lo that under study in the House. Thc Senate group, however, is not expected to act on the measure for _\yeek or, so.. f - Anti-poll fnx and anM-lynching legislation has cleared the House on a number of ocnstons.

The lar^csl price slushes, he .said, were on pork chops, lard, bacon. e;: r :s and lettuce. Prices of onions, potatoes, canned tomatoes, coflcc and milk were higher lasl Tuesday than on Jan- 13. He said the retail food drop would reduce the overall cost of Ijvins index l!i per cent but rises in other living costs, such as rent and clothing. ml«ht offset the reduction. "Whether these 'price cutsl arc maintained or extended depends largely on the extent to which Ihe droii In primary markel prices Is reflected in lower wholesale costs of foods in local inarkel-s," lie said.
