Welfare Slite hi Americas, Is Buffer (This li one of · series of*" artlcles Ed Vandevehter is writing about hi trip throufh South America), By ED VANDEVENTEIt Montevideo--This friendly and pretty city l the capital of Uruguay, the first bona fide ''welfare state" developed in the.Americas --except, of course, the Isca empire in Peru. Electricity and the railways have 'been nationalized. The slate controls the manufacture and distribution 'of alcohol, chemicals, gasoline and other products. Even insurance is · controlled · by the govcrnomnt. Telephones, theaters, hotels, casinos and bank* ire owned by.the state. The state also provides its own tugboats as it administers the port of Montevideo; it controls broadcasting and subsidizes music. A minimum wage, holidays with pay, free medical 5crvi9e, liability insurance, unemployment pay, old age and service pensions, and a limited work week were in order here long before these acts for the benefit of workers were adopted . in the United States. The ballot is secret, asd women have equal rights. with men in choosing the highest officers of government. Divorce is legalized, contrary to the situation in many L,atln American countries. Investigation of paternity of Illegitimate tiildren is obligatory, and'these children have the same inhcri- :ancc rights as do others. Education ComDulsbry Education is not only free, but also compulsory. There is no capir al punishment. There is no domi- lation of the state by the church. Uruguay is the smallest of the republics of South America, hav- ng an area of only 71,153 square' miles. A buffer between the 'ortuguese-speaking p e o p 1 e of Brazil and the descendants of Spaniards in Argentina, the little country had' a stormy childhood. Great Britain saved it from being lobbied up in the . scramble for lower between its strong neigh- jors. The temperature here goes as high as 114 during the worst of he summer heat, but in winter here never is any snow and .the only ice ever seen is about a; hick as a piece of tissue paper. Most of the time the climate could be described as delightful. Like all of this section of South America, Uruguay has been plagued with Irou'ths for two years. Its spring consists of October and November, . Summer runs rom December 1 a through March, o 1 am seeing the last of summer here.- April and May constitute utumn. That leaves June 1-Oc- obcr 1 for winter. The country generally is hilly, vith the highest point having an iltitude of only 2,000 feet. Rich Soil, Lush Ora»» Potash in its black rich soil produces such jush grasses that Jruguay does not have to copy Argentina and grow alfalfa. The lalm is made that it has grazing or livestock superior to that even n the Pampas. Only eight per cent of the coun- ry's total area is used for agriculture. Even from its chief crop--wheat--there is little left or export.. Flax with its by- iroducts furnishes » surplus to * sold elsewhere. Rice, barley, oats, fruits and vegetables are ;rown for home consumption. The progressive Uruguayans mported fine .sheep and cattle rom England to improve their locks and herds. Now meat, hides nd wool make .up 70 per cent of he nation's exports. Even fire- vood. is imported, while the short- go of coal, oil, and raw ma- erials has retarded industrial de- 'elopment. In 1945 a dam was completed vcr the Rio Negro, and a hydro- lectric plant is operating. Others re in the blueprint stage. The nnual production of electricity is bout 400,000,000 kilowatt hours.
