Gonzalez Says
Chile May Lead
"The Chilean delegation to the
San Francisco Conference suggested
the enforcement of democratic gov-
ernments in Latin America and Chile
may become the leading anti-fascist
government in South America, "said
Orlando Gonzalez, graduate student
from Chile, in an interview yester-
"Argentina, Brazil, and other Cen-
tral and South American countries
will follow the example of the other
governments," he added.
'"I regret that at the informal dis-
cussion at Tappan House (I was not
aware that it was going to be pub-
lished), I said, commenting on the
significance of the declaration of war
of some Latin American countries,
that none of them had sent troops
to the theatre of war. Some other
questionkcame up and I forgot to
mention th at the exception was Brazil
who has an expeditionary force in
Italy and on other fronts and it did
not look complimentary on my part,"
he said.
