FACE 3— XAPGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, APBIL 20, 1951 WASHINGTON COLUMN - By PETER EDSONNEA Staff Correspondent, Arthur MacArthur t's First Visit To America For General's Son- Peron Press Jumps On U. S. And Latin-American Meeting Washington—(NBA)— Argentine press coverage of the Latin-American Foreign Ministers meeting in Washington offered a line example of Peronism in action. With the great independent daily, "La Prensa," of Buenos Aires, suppressed by the Argentine government, the remainder of. the newspapers in that country did a rough job of criticizing the conference and the United States and neighboring countries, particularly Brazil. Also, copies of Argentine newspapers airmailed to the United States during the conference reveal that there was much printed criticism of the U. S. press, apparently for its interest In the closing of "La Prenza" and the flight to Uruguay of its distinguished editor. Dr. Alberto Gainza Paz. Nearly 400 newspaper correspondents were accredited to the Washington meeting of the Latin-American Foreign Ministers meeting. Most of them were correspondents permanently stationed in Washington. But nearly 50 were Latin- American correspondents sent to cover the meeting for Spanish and Portuguese language papers, magazines, news associations and pools of papers.. . From the Argentine came one man, Carlos V. Dobarro. He was accredited as a photographer from Agencia Latina, an Argentine press association. But Buenos Aires newspapers received in Washington reveal that he also filed daily dispatches, appearing principally in "Democracia" and "Critica." These are the mainstays of the Peron press in the Argentine capital. ANYTHING YOU CAN DO . . . One of Dobarro's first dispatches, appearing in "Democracia" not long ago, was headed, .in free translation: "America Faces Problems Already Solved by Peron." After noting that the opening session of the conference was held in Constitution Hall, "that seat of reaction," he wrote that "this probably accounted for the cold and formal nature of the proceedings. Then came this paragraph: "The Argentine people, accustomed as they are by now to seeing their problems solved through persevering action on the part of their justicialist gpvernment—popu- lar well-being, education and social security—would be astounded to witness the fact that these problems are still mentioned (at this conference) in terms of promises for the future." ' ' This note of Argentine superiority to the rest of the world appeared in other dispatches. In one it was noted that "the Argentine continues to stand on a solid economic foundation, while the economy of Brazil has .been sold out tothe United States ,by- r 'the Rio ;overrfment.<' This appeared in Critica." An editorial in the same paper eclared: "Assistant Secretary of State Miller (who is in charge of Latin- unerican affairs) has lately been devoting himself to recommending he purpose of which would be to a generous policy of "cooperation," have the Latin-American countries ihip their products—for the sake if idealism—without considering, or the time being, the insignificant iroblem of payment in dollars. "Needless to say," the editorial iontinued, "there are always dis- rustful people, like one Latin- American diplomat (not named) who summarized his impressions as, "This is merely a new good neighbor policy. We are good, they are the neighbors.'" • THREATENS TO BALK C. S. in UN "Democracia" followed this up with a veiled threat of opposition 0 United States policy in the United Nations. It editorialized as ollows: "Just as thus far the American newspapers have hardly given any mblicity to the meeting, it also leems to be forgotten that .the 20 fotes of the Latin-American na- ions may decide anything in the hall of the United Nations." There has been violent attack on .he American press, in all the Siienos Aires newspapers. This is probably in retaliation lor American press attacks on the closing of "La Prehsa'." . A recent editorial in "Critica" declared, "Yankee journalism seeks scandal and lives on scandal. Its circulation is based on calummy, on insult, on sensationalism and never on information." On the same day, "La Epocha" lad a long article headlined: "The Majority of Dailies in U. S. Have No Freedom." And "noticias Graficas" in an editorial declared that "American rournalists Are Agents of Wall Street." This same editorial noted with smug satisfaction that the Argentine occupies the sale "third position" between communism and capitalism." On the announcement by Argen- ine President Peron that his gov- rnment had solved the mystery if atomic power, the Argentine press declared that the news had 1 a devastating effect" in Washing- on. State Department officials were reported to have "grabbed .heir hats and run to- the Argen- ine embassy to find out what it was all about."

Waterford Mill Would Cost Over $190 Million Hao-tford April 20 — (UP) — Qualified 'approval has been given >y an engineering firm of the pro- >osed New England steel mill. A detailed 'survey shows that a mill at Waterford could produce j teel economically and sell it at a' iroflt, in competition with other | ompanies. The survey was prepared by 3overdale and 'Cblpitts of New York. It was released today by governor, Lodge. He plans to meet his morning with advisors to attempt to decide whether the administration should support the irojeet. , ' '•• ".;•• The report stales that the basic dea of establishing a steel mill'in New England is well founded. It jays, however, thcte are several ibstacles to'be overcome. The chief one is construction costs, -which have been soaring; „ The mill would stand a better chance if it were built by an es- ablished firm, instead of an independent New England company, according- to the, report. It estimates ihat an existing company would lave an advantage of as much as 25 per cent in operating profit over a new firm. Most of the mill's output would lave to be sold in New England, .he report continues. The metropolitan New York and northern New Jersey area is described as a marginal market because of competition, from other plants. The Waterforci mill would cost $190,000,000, exclusive of the thousand acres heeded. It would require 2890 wc-rkers for around-the-clock production of.610,000 tons of flat- rolled , products a year. The mill could be douSfled in capacity il necessary. The mill would be built on the Long- Island Sound, east of New London harbor. The site now includes :a state tuberculosis sanatorium, whose, buildings could be used advantageously. Obtaining iron ore for the mill presents the greatest difficulty, but the situation will be considerably improved when supplies are available from Labrador and Venezuela about 1956, the report states. The engineers found that sufficient coal could be purchased from existing mines. Limestone could be obtained in -New England, and stec scrap also would be available in the region. Rail, water and electric facilities are said to be adequate. Administrative selling and gene ral expense is estimated at les:_ than for existing steel companies of the same size. The mill woul be larger than three-fourths o those in the industry. Jesse F.Davis Named To Term On New State Commission Jesse F.
