seriously affected last year the re-
gion's capacity to import as well
as to go on at desired speed with
basic economic development
In thie first nine months of 1957,
the area had a trade deficit of
early .$600,000,000 with the Uni-
ted States alone as purchases ran
20 per cent ahead of the corres-
ponding period of 1956 and ex
ports to the north rose by only
1 per cent.
Commercial arrears. of Latin-
American importers in the United
States stood at the end of the
third quarter at more than
$160,000,000 and dollar reserves
of the central banks dropped con-
siderably in eight republics and
increased in only six in the first
Oil rich Venezuela more than
doubled reserves, thus looming
as the region's principal example
of property and fiscal solvency,
but Argentina and Brazil suffered
painful losses in dollar reser-
q In terms of financing and eco-
nomic development the basic de-
pendence in a majority of cases
was on export earnings, which
generally were unsatisfactory in
1957. However, Latin America
fared extremely, well id' private
foreign investments. These, in
Washington's view are, in the
long run, more important than
loans and grants.
Thus in the first semester this
flow added up td $ 561,000,000, of
which Brazil received more than

$ 400,000,000.
But aside from the relative im-
portance of foreign trade and in-
vestments, it was the old nagging
problem of inflation .-eombined
with chaotic planning that still
was responsible for the slowing of
over-all expansion. The inflatio-
nary rate did decrease in 1957 in
most of the republics. But low

productivity plagued industry and
agriculture. The rate of economic
growth barely kept pace with po-
pulation increases.
Yet the. most worrisome prob-
lem of the year was that of slipp-
ing commodity prices.
While recognizing that for most,
part these price decreases result-
ed from uncontrollable economic
forces, Latin Americans none the

less vented much of their anger
and disappointment at the United
States, complaining once more
that fluctuations in commodities
could be better held in check if
Washington would enter into pri-
ce- stabilization pacts.
During 1957, the prices of cof-
fee, a vital export of Brazil, Co-

republics, generally -lagged far
below the previous yeAr's levels.
The same was true of cotton and
various nonferrous metals, which

Did you know that the Wedg-
wood ware you so admire today
was first started by Josiah Wedg-
wood in the late 1700's? Actually
Josiah was one of Englancs most
celebrated potters, and it was in
1763 that he took out a patent for
a beautiful cream-colored porce-
lain which he had finally arrived
at after much refining of mate-
rials. This was the porcelain that
later became know as queen's w'are
for Queen Charlotte so admired it
that she gave her patronage to the
Wedgwood's assistant, John Flax-
man, modeled the most characte-
ristic designs. For he put the
small cameo reliefs on the, by
fhen, famous blue or sage green
bodies. Some of the cameos were
white, others soft pastels, and all
.were applied when the base was
still sqft, then they were fired.
.The figures were classical and the
microscopic detail amazing. These
same cameo figures in the same
minute detail are still available...
foi what those two men fired in
the late 18th. century is what we
know and ldve as Wedgwood to-
day, Collectors of Wedgwood are
as avid now and as eager to find
new pieces, or pieces at a price,
as ever they were before.


ago, yet they are some of the most
desired pieces today. They are
diamond, heart, spade, and club
shaped with the traditional cameo
work in the center. There are ci-
garette holder bowls to match the
ashtrays.... lovely tall atomizers
too for a lady's boudoir'... salt and
pepper shakers to make any din-
ner table more lovely. An assort-
ment of bowls is available, and of
course, cups and saucers. For the
woman who collects cups and sau-
cers or for the hostess who uses
different cones for her after din-
ner coffees or tea time serving,
these are treasured additions to
her household things. Each set is
priced $5.75. Then you'll see one
of the handsomest pieces of all-
a beautiful tea set with tea pot,
creamer, and large sugar bowl
complete with cover. All are sepa-
rately priced so that you may buy
them all at once or piece by piece
and build up your set slowly. No-
tice too the different size and style

to any home.

.Almost all of the pieces come
in both the famous light blue with
white cameo figures and the dull

New right from the road up, the Victor heralds a new
generation of cars... lower, swifter, more efficient. The
low roofline of the Victor is only 58 inches high! Though
built so low to the road, headroom is generous and ground
clearance ample. This verv modern design pays big
dividends in easy driving. Weight is kept low and there
is a new flat-ride suspension system. So the Victor shows
remarkable reluctance to roll on corners. Sure-footed
vafetv ;s des;"ned ri-ht into the Victor.

Powered by a new, deep-skirt ,,square" engine, the Victor
is very much a.lop gear car-with swift, smooth top gear
acceleration from walking pace into the middle seventies.
This top gear flexibility cuts petrol consumption, too.
Because the Victor's ",square)) engine performs so efficient
ly throughout its whole speed range, it puts the Victor far
ahead of its class for all-round fuel economy.
Once again it's Vauxhall for value with en exciting new
car at an excitingly low price!
There's-value in every aspect of the Victor's very advanc-
ed design: in its new,low-swept good looks and panoramic
vision: in its new flat-ride suspension, and its new petrol-
saving Csquare, engine.I
You must see -and try- this new Vauxhall. It's-in our
show-room now awaiting your personal inspection.
There are two versions of the Victor from which to choose... the Victor
and the more Impriously appointed Victor ,Super*. This de luxe
model, the ,Super,, is distinguished by extra chronework, a wider
choice of colours, and such refinements as armrest door pulls.

The authors of this type of
criticism, who include the top Go
vernment economists, feel the Ex
port-Import Bank should change
its regulations, which provide
that United States loan money 'be
used to purchase United States
produced goods. Conversely they
propose that the World Bank,
which is not restricted by such
rules, assume a larger share ol
the lending1 program.
The World Bank itself was the
target of heavy Latin-American
Attacks in 1957. With loans to
Latin-America in the fiscal year
ended June 30 totaling only
$ 63,100,000, the bank came under
fire by its Latin-American gover-
nors at September's annual confe-
rence in Washington.
The Latin-American governors
sought to push 'through resolu-
tions calling upon the bank to
pay more attention to the region
and change procedures to make
loans in domestic currencies as
well as in dollars.
General criticism of the Unit-
ed States and the World Bank
was also loud in the corridors at
the BuenosAires conference of
the finance ministers of the he-
misphere in August and it took a
lot of diplomatic maneuvering to
keep this resentment out of the
speeches and resolutions.
The conference, which in the
eyes of most Latin Americans
achieved exactly nothing in the
*way of formulating new joint de-
velopment programs with United
States participation, did produce
a watered down 'Buenos Aires

As we approach 1958 with
mixed feelings about mankind,

.make a pact with ourselves
to make this year a useful one
in the physical, mental and spi-
ritual sense.
eBut more than anything else
very few -people manage to re-
ach the crowning glory of the

cay with the body without faith
