The problem of states’ rights, the right under which the - state determines the status of its j representatives, versus the federal right under which the federation dictates the qualifications of the state representative, has resulted in the challenging of the right of Dusty Rhode to sit on the ASSC senate. In the face of the dispute, Rhode has resigned. Under the stipulations of the ASSC constitution, the representatives of the various colleges must be popularly elected by the student body members. Therefore, it has been charged Rhode, chosen by the College of Commerce council, fails to qualify.

NON-INTERVENTION “If President Truman's promise of non-intervention is a statement of policy, it would mean that the United States would not stand by and allow expansion of any Latin American country at the expense of weaker neighbors.” Mr. Hadley declared. “That is the kind of guarantee Uruguay has been hoping we would give. ’ Mexico is regarded as a highly democratic country throughout Latin America. Hadley observed that United States friendship with them might be regarded as an endorsement of their policies whereas our cordial relations with Argentina are somewhat disillusioning to democratic neighbors to tlie south. GOOD NEIGHBORS “Our preoccupation with European affairs in the past few months has led some people to say that we are turning our backs on Latin America.
