(By ASSOCIATED PRESS)
It is one of the American illu-
sions of our times that this coun-
try can lead tile free world effec-
tively without putting its own house
in order, wjth one hand tied be-
hind its back, so to speak. The
prayerful hope is that we discover
that this isn't true before it is too
late. At nc time in history has a
leading nation managed to stay in
front when it had trouble at home,
and home for the United States is
not merely this country but the
The current outlook in hemis-
pheric affairs is most discouraging.
The United States has lost face as
well as ground. There is harmony
on th*. surface. Most of the Latin
republics, all except two. still lock
up to Uncle Sam but not as much
as in the past. The old spell has
been broken. It has been broken
because we took things for granted,
because we became complacent.
We did not cultivate the garden suf-
ficiently and were not particularly
worried about a few weeds here
and there. Now the weeds havt
grown to the point where it will
take unremitting work and great
expense over a long period tc get
the garden to bloom again.
The truth is that we wore long- ]
distance glasses which did not per-1
mit us to see what was going on
around us. Everything wrong that '
has happened in the past couple of j
years is the result of neglect. We |
worried ourselves sick about living |
standards in remote areas and for-
got to look into economic conditions
nearer home. It may come as a
surprise to some Americans, but
the economic scale in some depres- j
sed areas of this hemisphere has
been among the lowest in the
world. Had We taken the trouble i
to enquire and had wp bestirred
ourselves to improve the state of
I affairs, we might not have had to
rope with such characters as Pre-
mier Castro of Cuba.
It may be mentioned in this gen-;
eral respect that all is not smooth
at the special inter-American eco-
uomir conference at Goeota. Col-
ombia. One of the highlights of the j
ten-dav meeting is the United Stat- j
es' offer to create a special 5001
million dollar fund for worthwhile j
projects in Latin America. The fund
would help finance improvements j
in rural areas. land use, housing j
and community facilities. Many i
delegations have said that the sum I
is far lie low actual requirements.
Others have been urging that Latin j
American regimes be given a lar-
ge voice on how the money is to be ,
spent. There still are murmurs a- j
bout this country's distant attitude,
and thev do not all come from Cas-1
Anvwaj the Boeota conference
i« j step in the right direction It
mu\ mean that we have abandon-
ed the notion that Communism is a |
matter ol geography. Many Wash-
ington officials nuu realize that any
country is vulnerable, near the
center of Communist power or
tar away trom it. Nations will re-
sist Communism if they have some-
thing to defend they will be indif-
ferent to the danger if they are
troubled economically and politi-
cally. Geography and distance have
nettling to do with the problem.
