McDevitt, E. Francis
February 1932
America;2/20/1932, Vol. 46 Issue 20, p476
The article presents the author's view on the words of the President Herbert Hoover that South America could not be held back in terms of their faith and future in the U.S. He states that he is certain that Hoover's mind was dwelling on the untapped natural resources in the tropical soil of the South. He cites that Catholicism has reached extremely high peak of development in the South and that it has already realized its potentials far in advance of its growth economically and culturally.
