Dear Mr. Condon;

praised enough- for attempting to help one ol your neighbors
across me ooraer morauy ana iinanciauy.
As cantain in the Medical Corns of the. Panama Fire Depart-

f patient, since 1 am a thoracic and a cardiovascular surgeon.
, I am surprised that neither Mr. de la Guardia nor-Mr. clegh clegh-orn,
orn, clegh-orn, have brought all the factors in this case to your attention,
since they are aware of tnem.
For your information, there are two cardiac surgeons on the
"isthmus of Panama.
, As for facilities, they are available In the surgical department
tji Oorgas Hospital, and in other hospitals in Panama.
iWe had 'made the .necessary arrangements, and Mr. de la
Guardia was scheduled to be. admitted to the surgical department
of 'Gorgas Hospital in order that the operation which he needs
could be performed. As a fellow fireman, I offered nun my serv
"ices at a cardiac suraeon free of chanre.
Mr. de la Guardia failed to show up, and his failure to follow
medical advice brought on his second heart attack on March 2,
If If Mr. de la Guardia wants to be operated on In Mexico or the

If you will read Page S34 of the i958 World Almanac, you
will find some facts lh peron's favor. v Among these is a state state's
's state's ment that 90 per cent of the people of Argentina are Catholics.
S Since I have proved in my letter" of March 5 that Perpn was
j elected in a fair election. It follows that most of the peronistas
If are Catholics. ; .
'3EW- It is not reasonable to suppose that Peron would commit
political suicide by ordering the burning of churches. Only the
iraekurch and the Communists could gain anything If they could
make the charges against peron stick. Therefore, I believe that
the Communists, and not the. Peronistas, committed crimes
against the church.
If Peron did ban church processions, it was because of thtf
J non-religious' acts that they committed in the name of religion, j
If a reiigloug procPSom trr"voown,ine American nag na re re-?

thing about it also. I do not know why the church did not
want to hold its procession on Corpus Christ! Day, nor why
another day was illegal. However,- it is reasonaDie to suppose
that special traffic arrangements have to be made by the police
when there is a procession. ;
You say that no procession Is Illegal where religious free freedom
dom freedom is enjoyed. I will go along with that statement;, but 1" also

Peron stated: "Delegations" from all the different religious

excepUon of the Catholic delegation, I had no trouble with any
of them. The Catholic delegation complained that Protestant
churches were sending missionaries to Formosa and wanted me
to put a stop td it. I said that I saw no reason to do so. An Another

making a spectacle of religion by singing and playing accordions

leaders called on him in protest, the article stated, he treated
them courteously and served them champagne. But he told
them firmly that his decree against divorce stood.
In order to placate them, he said that the ban against the
teaching of rellgipn in the public schools would be continued
until Congress convenes when that Question, together with the
divorce issue, would be taken up. : ;
I have not kept the paper in which I read the following

the earlier part of March, on a Saturday, the morning paper

' PROVIDENCE. R. I., April 11
(UP) The national industry hunt
ing tour of Gov: William C. Mar-
land of West Virginia was labeled
"a raiding party" and "a waste
of time", today by two New Eng England
land England governors.
Gov. Dennis J. Roberts of Rhode
Island wired Marland that his A A-phi
phi A-phi 16-20 visit to New England
"would serve no useful purpose."
He joined Gov. Abraham Ribicoff!
of Connecticut who said the trip
"should be canceled."
Marland said he planned the
trip in an attempt 'to sell West
Virginia to industrialists as a good
site for expansion. But he told
Ribicoff, "We're not attempting to
lure your industry away or take
advantage- of your fall disasters."
Boberts told Marland that
'During th past week several
Jtrotests have been received from
eading Rhode Island industrial industrialists
ists industrialists in regard to your proposal to
lure away Rhode Island-firms.
"It would appear your trip
would .serve no useful purpose.
The wisdom involving the govern governor
or governor of West Virginia in such a vis visit
it visit is questionable."
Ribicoff advised Marland that
industry had decided to remain in
his state despite flood damage and
added, "West Virginia certainly
could offer no advantages that
could lure these plants from us

so arranged that every square

Serving all this vast amount of

which are mostly used for office
