They believe more cordial rela

Americans now have had the op
portunity to meet and know the
president-elect and present their
own viewpoints so as to enable him
better to comprehend their aspir

The questions of intervention
and tariff arose particularly in the
Argentine, where there has been

cribed as of foreign origin, against
the United States. There has been
some feeling of hostility against
the United States in that country

flax and on the Nlcaraguan ques

talked very frankly with President
Yrigoycn, and members of his
cabinet on these subjects. They
