Partial Blame For 20 Revolutions
Caribbean In Last 20 Years
Laid On Foreign Policy


Outlining the history of commercial
exploitation in Central America, par-
ticularly in Nicaragua, Mexico, Pana-
ma and Haiti, Scott Nearing in his lec-
ture yesterday in Natural Science
auditorium on "Dollar Diplomacy in
the Caribbean" declared that Amer-
ican business investments have in-
evitably been protected and accom-
panied by marines and battleships.
"America is not a pioneer in this pol-
icy," he stated, "as the game of po-
litical, economic and military im-
perialism by the powerful countries
over the weak is an old one in the
annals of history."
Pointing out several specific in-
stances, Mr. Nearing said that in 1846
the United States stole the Southwest
territory from Mexico and it was only
by the advent of the Civil war that
the Southern states were prevented
from securing Cuba as a base for the
slave trade. Since the beginning, this
country has imposed its armed will on
its weaker neighbors in the South.
R''alti Treaty Cited
Professing to be speaking literally,
Mr. Nearing declared that our treaty
with Haiti was made with bayonets.
The acquisition of Panama through a
revolution occurring at the proper
time, he cited as another way through
which this country has annexed a
In the present Nicaragua situation

tioned means. Mr. Nearing predicted
revolt in the disputed territory which
will be followed by a plea to the
loyalty of the citizens of this country
to protect our national interests,
which he declared will be nothing
more or less than the interests of the
United States Fruit company.
The holdings of this country in the
Caribbeans, he set roughly at $35,-
000,000, while the trade annually
amounts to over $200,000,000. In the
face of such an economic situation,
Mr. Nearing stated, it is almost in-
conceivable to expect the business in-
terests in this country to feel -altru-
istic about the matter. The signifli-
cance of this latter remark being that
the interests of the state department
and the business interests are iden-
