In connection with the actual
questions that will be discussed by
our delegation, most American ob-
servers feel that there are two prob-
lems affecting our relations with the
other republics that are certain to
arise. One, undoubtedly, will have
to do with the treatment of Ameri-
can citizens and American property.
The other question, much more
subtle, but even more pressing at the
present time than the first, and as
certain to come up now as it didi dur-
ing President Monroe's administra-
tion in 1823, will concern the "at-
tempts of foreign powers to extend
their s:stem to any portion of this
hemisphere." Such attempts, in the
eyes of nearly all Americans, would
be considered now, as it was then, as
being "dangerous to our peace and
The policy of the State Department
in regard to this second question is
unequivocal; it has been stated and
re-stated in press conferenecs and de-
partmental releases. The newest ver-
sion, voiced by Secretary Hull just
before heaving for Lima, can be sum-
marized as follo s: We cannot ques-
tion the right of any Latin-American
republic to manage its internal af-
fairs as it chooses, but we would be
concerned, as would our neighbors, if
any Lain-American country were to
become, in form or in fact, a depen-
dency of a foreign power. We believe
that the existing governments of the
Latin - American countries would
agree that the arrogance of European
dictatorships must stop short of this
side of the Atlantic.
It is undoubtedly true, as many

There will, furthermore, be mutual

The economic side of Latin-Ameri-
can relations, stressed by the State
Department in its outline of Ameri-
can policy, is probably the most sig-
nificant, and in part explains our po-
litical policy. The statistical record
of the past few years, compiled by
the Standard Statistics Company, in-
dicates that the struggle for Latin-
American trade has been intensified,
and that the chief competing na-
tions-the United States, Germany,
Great Britain and Japan-have suc-
