MOtTHWMT AK;:A:·$··'· rim Fnvettsvi;!; -/kon :m Mendoy, January It, 1Sf Americans Find They Can Live Well In Buenos Aires; Food Nol Expensive, Opportunities Open Buenos Aires-M'; - The 3,000* Americans who live in Buenos Aires have a wry remark they make when they become homesick: "The United Stales is a wonderful place. But who can afford to livs Ihere?" Their pay, oven if good by .American slandards, is even bel- ter by Argentine. This is (rue even though most American firms op- eratnu. in .-.rL;cu:!!l:' [:\y nil in pesos. An American earning $5,000 a year--a good middle class salary in Ihe Uniled Stales-- may earn about 50,000 pesos a year, even at an artificially fixed exchange rate. Yel a white collar Argentine worker may draw 15,000 pesos a year. The American, therefore, can I live as would a well-to-do Argentine. He usually can afford a house or an aparlmenl in a favored residential district, and quite possibly, one or two servants. What's more, his costs may be low. For his apartment, with two or three bedrooms, lie may pay around $100 a month. A newcomer, renting now on an inflationary market, would pay much more. But food prices, in one of the world's richest agricultural regions, are extremely low; Steaks Famed The fame of Argentine steaks-l'/ 2 inches thick for 40 cents-- is far spread. Rut other food prices are comparable. Some of the world's most succulent melons cost the equivalent of a nickel. A heavy, winey. flavorful coffee costs, at the most, 35 cents a pound. Scarce sweet butter, even if bought under the counter, goes at around 25 cents a pound. A feature of grocery buying, however, is that Argentina has no equivalent for the North Ameri- · can supermarket. Most food items have to be bought separately, sometimes from a door to door peddler. That's where Ihc servant comes in handy. i An Argentine-American housewife, for inslance, could spend the better part of her morning answering the doorbell.

The chief lopic of conservation, j total of 300, however, is likely to be about the things that arc new in the United Stales. The plays, politics, movies, and novels arc all thoroughly and avidly discussed.
