Latin America Resents U.S. Neglect
By Dick tuckey
"Niglect is the main Latin
American complaint against
the United States."
Dr. Stanley L. Ross of the
history department, past sum
mer Latin American visitor,
voiced this opinion in a1 Daily
Nebraskan interview.
"When we need them (the
Latin American states), we
turn to them otherwise they
are forgotten," said Dr. Ross.
'United States forgetful neg
lectpolitically and econom
icallyhas been particularly
conspicuous throughout the
cold war. Our diplomatic at
tention has been turned to
Europe and Asia, and Latin
America has -resented the
Area Characteristics
Dr. Ross pointed out that
Latin America is an area
characterized by social
economic revolution, strong

importance due to natural re
sources and an explosive pop

The geographic location, in
relation to United States se
curity, is of great importance
as snown by wona war 11.
Trade imoortance and Unit
ed States private financial in
vestment in the area in
creases our need for concern,
he said.
However, the United States
concern has been a political
one, a policy unfavorable to
Latin Americans. Its national
economic reform tendency
and industrial stress desires
a United States policy of eco
nomic assistance, he said.
' "Most Latin American
areas desire domestic nation
al economic control," Dr.
Ross said, "but this is not al
ways possible. So, foreign in
vestment under strict nation
al control is advocated. But
except for private investment,
United States encouragement
in economic investment and
assistance has been slighted
during recent years."
Dr. Ross pointed to recent
meetings in the United
States aimed at rectifying our
neglect, paucity of knowledge
about the area and lack of
consistent policy in Latin

ing," he said, "three main
points were discussed. The
problem of United States eco
nomic aid in Latin American
development, the opposition to
United States intervention in
Latin American internal af
fairs, and the threat of com
munistic 'economic and cul
tural infiltration.
"It was pointed out that
most Latin American areas
preferred international "or in
tergovernmental sources of fi
nancial aid instead of foreign
private enterprise.
"The Arden House partici
pants," Dr. Ross continued,
"favored U.S. assistance in
economic development along
with complete respect for
Latin American incipient na
tionalism. The effective pur
suance of this policy conld
possibly destroy much of the
appeal of communism."
Dr. Ross indicated that the
felt the general press cover
age in Latin America
has been inadequate, citing
the coverage on the Cuban
revolution as very unfortun
ate. "It takes an earthquake or
revolution some sensational
development to warrant pub
lication of news of Lat
in America in the general run
of newspapers," Dr. Ross
"The result is that ihe
American public gets a shock
treatment due to an absence
of knowledge of circum
stances producing the head'
line events.
"With the exception of the
New York Times, press cov
erage was lacking in depth
necessary to produce an un
derstanding of what happened
and why in Cuba.
Castro Non-Communist
Dr. Ross said that he did
not think Fidel Castro is a
Communist and that the Cas
tro group deeply resents being
called Communist.
Dr. Ross said,"I think this
is a definite American' trait
to label all revolutions and
their leaders Communistic.
Castro is a Cuban nationalist.
"The communists were the
last to jump on the Castro
bandwagon," Dr. Ross point-
Familiar paofc
r erush-proof box
ed out, ."and there is no
basis for saying that Commu
nists dominate the Cuban gov
ernment in Cuba. However,
there are communists repre
senting -Cuba abroad.
"I think Castro feels he can
dominate the Communists in
Cuba, but sees no point in so
doing as they are presently
his allies and since he is be
ing attacked and criticized by
the Cuban right wing and by
the United States."
Dr. Ross said that "the Lat
in American good will of the
thirties and the benefits of the
forties have been largely dis
sipated. But I do not feel rela
tions are as bad as they are
often portrayed and they are
not as good as official sources
tend to indicate. There seems
to be a great difference of
opinion among scholars as to
the actual state of the United
States-Latin American rela
tionship." Rooters Day
Hears Swine
Study Report
Reports of various swine
studies conducted by mem
bers of the department of ani
mal husbandry at Ag College
were among the highlights of
the 24th annual Rooters Day
on the Ag campus Friday.
Four members of the de
partment. Dr. E. R." Peo Jr.,
D. B. Hudman, Dr. La von
Sumpt'on and Charles Adams,
discussed the reports.
Hog prices were discussed
by Don Engel, extension ani
mal husbandman at the Col
lege, who said that a near
record 104 million hogs pro
duced this year may drive
prices to $12 or $13 a hundred
by December.
"Slight recovery during De
cember may occur but gen
erally lower prices will pre
vail during 1960 as compared
with 1959," Engel said.

The Almanac Says .
Predictions Are Bad
For Campus Events
'students contemplating the
investment of huge sums to
purchase a coat to shut out
the most furious blasts of win
ter air may be able to forget
their worry.
The winter will be warmer
than last year and close to
average temperatures, will
prevail according to the 1960
Old Farmer's Almanac. This
small book of predictions, se
lect ryhmes, planting tables,
anecdotes, pleasantries and
other profound information
boasts its 1958-59 weather pre
dictions as being "71 cor
rent and successful for No
vember through April."
Accordng to the November
predictions, campus can ex
pect to be blessed with tem
peratures three to 7 degrees
above normal, but the outlook
for the AUF Drive and the
Colorado football game is a
bit discouraging.
Snow flurries are predicted
on both those dates. Thanks
giving is to be clear, but
White Christmas
The Military Ball will be
greeted by a northeaster ac
companied by sleet and the
Kosmet Klub Fall Show will
have fair but chilly weather,
the Almanac predicted. Most
of Christmas vacation will be
clear but Christmas Day it
self could be white, with snow
flurries scheduled. '

Typewriter Ribbons Put On
They're transmission engineers with Michigan
Bell Telephone Company in Detroit. Burnell
graduated from Western Michigan in 1951
with a B.S. in Physics, spent four years in
the Navy, then joined the telephone company.
His present work is with carrier systems, as
they relate to Direct Distance Dialing facilities.
Dick got his B.S.E.E. degree from Michigan
in 1956 and came straight to Michigan Bell.
He is currently engineering and administering
a program to utilize new, transistorized re
peater (amplifier) equipment.
Both men are well qualified to answer a
question you might well, be asking yourself:
"What's in telephone company engineering
for me?" ,
"There's an interesting day's work for you
every day. You really have to use your engi
neering training and you're always working
with new developments. Every time Bell Lab
oratories designs a new and more efficient
piece of equipment, you are challenged to in
corporate it in our system effectively ,'tnd
economically. For example, I have been work
ing on projects utilizing a newly developed
voice frequency amplifier. It's a plug-in typo
transistorized and consumes only two
watts, so it has lots of advantages. But I hava
to figure out where and how it can be used ia
our sprawling network to provide new and
improved service. Technological developments
like this really put spice in the job."
"Training helps, too and you get the best.
Through an interdepartmental training pro
gram; you learn how company-wide operations
dovetail. You also get a broad background by
rotation of assignmehts. I'm now working
with carrier systems, but previously worked on
repeater (amplifier) projects os Dick is doing
now. Most important, I think you always learn
'practical engineering.' You constantly search
for the solution that will be most economical
in the long run."
There's more, of course but you can get
the whole story from the Bell interviewer.
He'll be visiting your campus before long. B
sure to sit down and talk with him.
New Year's Eve will usher
in many, things, including a
period of fair weather. Clear
weather and severe cold will
accompany the last day of
classes and finals week will
be comparatively , warm,
predictions say. The begin
ning of second semester
classes will be amidst a prob
able blizzard.
Coed Follies will be present
ed during1, a violent Gizzard
or rain storm, according to
the Almanac. The State High
School Basketball Tourna
ment will have somewhat bet
ter weather than the bitter
cold of last year.
The State High School De
bate Tournament will be held
during clear, but cold weath
er and the joint Phi Beta
Kappa-Sigma Xi Banquet is
expected to be , held during
wet and windy weather.
