ADLAI STEVENSON'S TRIP
ri The New York Times
riorth Americans must not think of Adlai Stevenson's forthcoming
rip to South America simply as a "goodwill mission." In the
sent state of Latin-American ferment and of disturbed rela-
'ins between that region and the United States such a voyage
s as much of a gamble as Vice President Nixon's ill-fated visit
o South America in the spring of 1958.
But this time Ambassador Stevenson will be forewarned, which
Ir Nixon was not. Moreover, Mr. Stevenson knows something
about Latin America, which Mr Nixon did not. The United Na-
ions Ambassador made a triumphal two-month trip to the area
year ago. He has a great reputation in Latin America, as else-
President Kennedy's letter on hMr Stevenson's mission explains
he hope behind the journey. It is to help prepare tlie groundwork
or the economic meeting in Uruguay on July 15. There will be
n exchange of ideas during the trip, whose importance will pro-
,bly lie more in the Kennedy Administration's acquiring some
understandingg of how Latin Americans. feel than vice versa. Ignor-
ice about Latin America ir the United States is one of the reas-

ons why our relations with the area are not good: we did not
.\en know how the Cubans, ninety miles off our shore, felt prior
ir. the disastrous invasion of April 1:.
Under Secretary Bowles spoke a good deal of sense, as usual
on Sunday when he said: "The biggest thing we should do is
stop being obsessed with Mr Castro and really move on to the bi,
questions that involve us all." He listed these as povertyy and
injustice and the insecurity of people who just feel there is no
much to live for." When Mr. Stevenson came back from his trij
to Latin America last year he said: "If the tree way of lIe does
not help the man.\ poor of this world, it will never save the few
rich." Mr Kennedy thought so much of the idea that lie paraphra
sed if for his inaugural. It is the philosophy at the heart of the
*"Alliance for Progress" plan and the idea above all others tha
the American envoy must emphasize.
Latin Americans will have relatively little interest in the '!.;ted
States, negative plans to combat Fidelismc and communism. They
will want to know what positive plans we have to foster economic
development and social justice. Faith in the United States has
been badly shaken by the ill-advised Cuban adventure. Mr Steven
son is trusted and respected. If there is any North American who
will be listened to today by intellectuals, by politicians and by

' In the matter of an application of
t AIRLINES, INC.
requesting authorization for ser-
vicing Cap Haitien and Port au
Docket No. 10103
Cap Haitien, Haiti,
March 25, 1961
The merchants, hotelmen. tra-
vel agents, owners of shops,
guides, drivers of Cap Haitien,
learned with great surprise the
decision rendered by the Civil
Aeronautics Board, on March 11,
1959, denying the application
filed by Caribbean Atlantic Air-
lines, Inc. (Caribair), Docket
No. 10103, requesting exemption
authority for air service between
the following towns: San Juan,
Cuidad TrujiUo, Cap Haitien,
Port au Prince.
We present a "firm and cour-
teous protestation against said
denial which is not in conform7
iry, neither with the general in-
terest, nor the interest of the
Haitian people, nor the princip-
les of good neighbour policy.
An attentive study of the do-
cument in which the Civil Ae-
ronautics Board is justifying
its opinion, has convinced us
that the Members of the Comm-
President 'Of United
ittee, for some reasons, no
doubt, independent of their will,
were not acquainted with the
true situation existing in Haiti
and particularly in Cap Haitien.
Therefore, in view to enlighten
them and so that they may jud-
ge in all cognizance, we have
taken the liberty to draw up
The CAB is supporting that
Caribair has not justified the
need of an air service for Cap
Haiien, since Port au Prince
is served by the PAA and Delta
Airlines; that a service between
Po-t au Prince and Cap Haitien
is already organized and that
nd particular circumstance is
requiring the establishment of
Caribair in Haiti...
We are going to demonstrate
that said argument is completely
erroneous and does not corres-
pond, neither to the reality of
facts, nor to the eloquence of

America in. recent years has
been the virtual stagnation of its
ecoriomic development. This lack
of progress, combined with a ris-

cial and political .tensions, which
may be summed up as a general
lack of hope for the future. .
While the new free trade as-

only seven nations, these repre-
