fhe tipper Pea Moiftes-Kepublican, September 10, 1930 JR Jo de Janeiro Described by Will F. Walker, Algona This is the second of a series of letters written to the Upper Dea Moines-Republican by Will P. Walker, well known Algona man, who with his wife, are on a visit to their son in Buenos Aires. It is thought he is m Buenos Aires at present and may be able to give out readers a first hand account of the revolutions now going on there. -Editor. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Editor of the Republican; Pursuant to franchise granted 1 ftm continuing my observ- • atlons somewhat and perhaps a little geography at this time will serve to refresh the reader's memory, by recalling facts that have grown somewhat dim. Let me recall that South America lies entirely east of the United States, thrusting a shoulder twenty-five hundred miles out into the Atlantic. That Chile, if laid down Oh our map could bathe Its feet in Manhattan harbor while resting its head on,the Rockies of Colorado. That Argentina, this Haughty republic of the southern hemisphere, has an area equal to a doz- • en states like Iowa, and counting its McttYour Frtaids at iNCER You Can Have Lots of Fun COUNTY FAIR And s«?e everything for the 50$ you at the gate Patagoniati possessions would stretch from New Orleans to the Hudson Bay. Venezuela furnishes a buffer for the Caribbean Sea, TJraguay, a state somewhat larger than Iowa, and much resembling it in the lay of its land, teeming with cattle and sheep, sleeps near the Brazilian giant. Bolivia and Ecuador unite with'Peru to form the great central plateau and Constitute the lands of the old Inca empire when that prehistoric people atttained touch culture and exhibited wonderful skill in constructing houses and irrigation plants, and fabricating copper utensils and gold ornaments hundreds of years before the Spaniard's avaricious eyes saw the land. The Andes Mountains, which many an earthquake has sought to break still link Panama with Terra Del Fuego. Chimborazo con* tlnues to smoke at a twenty thousand foot 'level, like the typical Spaniard that he is—and the Amazon river rushes up to explain its width and length by showing a rainfall of eighty inches per annum over most of its great basin. If we now can imagine, from apppear- ances, South America to be an over stout nation, we can easily see- the Galapayos Islands, which belong to Bolivia, as the beaded pearls she has thrown about her neck, while the Falkland Islands, hear the Magellan straits may be the tinkling bells tied to her ankles. In memory of Inca days, be- .fore sail, or steam,-or wireless or radio awoke this continent from its centuries old sleep. Approaching Rio de Janeiro. Trusting this sketch will aid you in visualizing the continent we were approaching with every pulsation of the oil burning engine of our boat, I now attempt to gather up some of the sensations and -Impressions that came tc me.. One day a porpoise several feet in length leaped entirely out of the water, either In play, or to escape the rush of a shark. Frequently whales spouted and flying fish skimmed above the waves. Rounding Brazil's bump sea gulls came into our wake, seekini tidbits to add to an otherwise'llmltet menu. A freighter is seen, and then another, lying low in the 'water. A rl- tyal" passenger steamer, off to leewart a mile or more, gleams with beauty from the lights of its deck and state rooms. Wreaths, of far-drifted sea and Live Stock.Shoul *as people. They have chiseled away the crags, they have filled up the morass, and low stone hut or granite palace climb from the water's edge up toward ;he crest of the mountain. The bun- ;al6w of our townsman, Mr. Goeders, Sr., has caught the architectural Idea of their houses more nearly than any other I recall. A wall of stone or brick, plastered without with colored mortars, many square nooks, of porticos and balconies, or patios, window sills projecting outward two or three feet, surrounded with Iron, or stone carved railings, Corinthians columns and pillafs/ costly doors loaded with carvings, wid heavy with brass and bronze locks, elaborate escutcheons, the entire ensemble guarded at the front by ft stone or iron fence. Behind this barricade the senorlta Is safe from Lochinvars of every variety. Indeed thousands of dollars are expended to adorn and embellish the front of the hoples of the "people. A street lined with these houses, varying always somewhat in the color scheme and the niches or entrances or wall plan, creat an impression of great artistic beauty. Spaniards, Portuguese and Niggers. Over against this agreeable picture, I wish to^place a very unique race policy not tolerated but sanctioned by the state. It,is the amalgamation of the races. Beginning with the Indian who was here7 the Spaniard and Portuguese came. Laborers being esesntial to work under this torrid zone, both Spaniard and Portuguese imported thousands of negro slaves from Africa and this plan continued down Into the nineteenth century. Then millions of Italians came, German and Russian accession helps to swell the total. Chinese, Dutch and English have added their quotas. Now this republic has one-half of the population of all South America or about 40,000,000 with negroes' and Portuguese predominat- and all speaking the language of the latter. With the exception of about five' per cent these races have freely frequently intermarried. In countless Instances this formality has been omitted, and a racial melting pot of their own liking Is operating. With ninety per cent Illiterate, the progeny from the alliances of Portuguese, Indian, Chinese, Italian and negroes fill the Algeria Downed by Corwith Sto 4.

Several of the peeks have been scaled by the, engineer and he has built steel cable trails to their summits from which the city and the sea and its leagues of white sand beaches can be seen. The Portuguese who dominate Brazil, who own Its coffee plantations, who have built an empire under the equator, are masters here in this metropolis. The business blocks, the palatial homes, the embellished cathedrals, they have reared—it is a matchless spectacle. Nor is the scene marred by the throngs oi people' on the streets wearing darker skins, growing smaller statures, talking rapidly and moving endlessly up and down and in and out of streets we would call alleys and stores we would call shops.
