MR. LODGE INVOKES
U. S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge's
abandonment of the niceties of diplomatic lan-
guage in his warning to Russia gave dramatic
emphasis to our determination to back up a
similar warning given Europe by President Mon-
roe over a century ago. Mr. Lodge's statement
in the United Nations Security Council to So-
viet Delegate Semyon Tsarapkin possibly set
an all-time record for bluritness in high-level
"I say to you, representative of the Soviet
Union: Stay out of this hemisphere, and don't
try to start your plans and conspiracies over
It was on Dec. 2, 1823, that President James
Monroe set the precedent upon which Ambas-
sador Lodge based his position. At that time
it had been proposed in Europe to overthrow
new democratic governments erected from for-
mer colonies of Spain. The Holy Alliance of
Austria, Russia, and Prussia, supported by
France, undertook "to put an end to the system
of representative government."
SAfter consulting with his cabinet, President
Monroe announced "as a principle in which the
rights' and interests of the United States are
involved, that the American continents, by the
free and independent conditions which they have
assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be
considered as subjects for future colonization by
any European powers." If any European power
tried to interfere with American governments,
the President added, the United States would
consider it an unfriendly act, "dangerous to our
,peace, and safety." .. ,

to'be precisely the sort the Monroe Doctrine was
drafted to oppose. The Communist Party, an
instrument of the Soviet Union, has de facto
if not official control of the Central American
state. While President Arbenz and his .top
officials are not Communists, he has courted the
party's support, appointed its members to im-
portant sub-cabinet posts, taken it into his gov-
ernment's coalition, and allowed it to organize
such government programs as the land reform
project. Exceedingly hostile to the United
States, the Guatemalan government has recently
imposed rigid press censorship and has posed
a threat to its neighbors with arms imports from
Czechoslovakia. Our cuase for concern is real
Just as the Soviet Union feels its interest
in the Balkan nations is justified by its security
considerations, so do we justify our concern for
the autonomy of Central and South American
states. Ambassador Lodge's statement leaves
no doubt as to where we stand.
TIME TO REPEAT
The month of July marks the 210th anniver-
sary of the passing of one of America's greatest
and least-remembered heroes John Peter Zen-
ger. In 1734, as the "independent, truculent"
editor of the New York Weekly Journal he was
thrown into jail, charged with criminal libel for
airing the abuse of power by the British governor
of New York It was his ultimate court victory
in 1735, that established the foundation for free-
dom of the press in the New World. And Zen-
ger's vindication before an hostile court resulted
from the insistence of his counsel on the right o.
the jury to inquire into the truth or falsity cf
the published statements.
As an editor, we are grateful to Publisher
John W. McPherrin of The American Magazine
for the timely reminder of our debt to Zenger
in the current (July) editorial .. "Free to
be RESPONSIBLE". It was this latter point --
that the press must be responsible as well as
free that inspired the first editorial in the first'
issue of the Colonies' first magazine. In 1741,
three years before John Peter Zenger's'death,
and 35 yeais before the Declaration of Inde-
pendence, the first ditor of The American Maga-
