On my trip through Mexico, Central America and South America, I asked that question over and over of both Americans living there and local government and business leaders. Also, I asked—and made my own earnest efforts to answer— the important question, what can be done in the future to improve our relations? 1 Clearly the United States is paying a price in Latin America more for errors of omission than commission. In»the period just Philadelphia Port Reopened As Fire Threat Subsides PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Coast Guard today re-opened the Port of Philadelphia which had been closed for seven hours as a precaution against fire after 7.000 gallons of a flammable chemical spilled into the Delaware River from a pipeline shattered by a ship. Chief Petty Officer William Taylor announced the port was reopened at 4:30 a.m. after an inspection showed that most of the chemical, orthoxylene. either evaporated, was absorbed by the water or went out with the tide. He said, however, that Philadelphia fire officials reported there still was a concentration of the chemical in the areas of two piers here. Smoking was prohibited in pier areas and vessels were asked to proceed with caution. The SS Dorset, a 10,000-ton freighter carrying lumber from Vancouver. B.C., to Philadelphia, smashed into the pier and cut the pipeline while trying to dock in a strong tide Wednesday night. The impact, which shattered a five-foot cement casing around the pipeline, left a two-foot hole in the bow of the ship. Mike Fakis, the ship's captain, and his crew of 35, walked off the ship without incident. Coast Guard headquarters in Gloucester City. N.J., ordered a)! traffic halted in a T^-mile stretch of the river between the Walt Whitman Bridge and the Pennsylvania Railroad's Delair Bridge. Precautions were taken to guard the USS Kitty Hawk, a super aircraft carrier undergoing tests at the docks. The New York Shipbuilding Corp. in South Camden, N.J.. and other waterfront industries doused acetylene torches and immediately ordered other fire prevention measures. A fireboat poured thousands of gallons of water on the river sur- facp to dilute the chemical which is used in the manufacture of paint and varnish. Firemen from Philadelphia, and Camden and Pennsauken. N.J.. stood by. The severed pipeline extends 1,500 feet from the pier to a group of tanks where the orthoxylene is stored for the Allied Chemical Corp. to the ero- i bly seemed to look down upon'public utilities in Mexico City sion of the prestige of the jthem, low-rating their intelligence,; just last year.
