Puerto Ricans
Want Statehood
Dominion Status Said
To Be Acceptable
"Although a majority of the people
in Puerto Rico want to remain an-
nexed to the United States, they
would like to see the country either
admitted into the Union as a state
or given a status similar to that of
the nations in the British Common-
wealth," Miss Elba Molina of Puerto
Rico said yesterday at a lecture.
Miss Molina stated that she be-
lieved that Puerto Rico should be
authorized to make commercial trea-
ties with other nations as lIng as
"they are in compliance with the
laws of the United States."
Challenging Miss Molina's state-
ment that the majority of the Puerto
Ricans want statehood, Dr. Sergio
Pena of Puerto Rico and a graduate
student in the School of Public
Health, said: "If the United States
Government would grant statehood
to Puerto Rico, few of the people
would turn it down. Nevertheless,
the vast majority of Puerto Ricans
are staunch advocators of a com-
plete sovereign government."
Miss Molina stated that the Uni-
versity of Puerto Rico has estab-
lished a center for the foreign ex-
change of educational and academic
ideas and for the promotion of mu-
tual understanding among the coun-
tries of Pan-America.
.Describing the war situation, she
said that 90 per cent of the single
men are now in military service.
"When the draft law was passed in
1940, the Puerto Ricans responded
immediately to the requirements of
the war and the country's allotment
was completely filled by voluntary
enlistment," she added.
