1. Confirming theh, WH Division makes me following
observations and requestsi
wishes to be informed as to whether the C.
"Jorganisation discussed directs its efforts to Latin America and, if so, to what areas and ln what manner.
the organisation does not concern itself withWH strongly recommends that the feasibility ofso should be considered at an early date.
Communist penetration of Latin America, andAmerica has reached rather alarming proportionsthe attention of 1 concerned with the C
T way of life in thold. the fi
Consideration should bo given to tho fact that while the Communist influence has made itsolf felt ln Latin America, it has not made tho conquests of which It oan boast ln Europe and preventive action as opposedalvaging operation, is still efficacious.
D. While WH urges that tho efforts of
organisation be directed to Latin America, WH would not wish an operation to bo carried out on its behalf since, presently, lt has no funds available for this purpose. Should, however, such activity develop to tho point where some support would bo needed for Its continuance or expansion, WH would probably be willing to seen the necessary authorisation to provide such support.
2. WH would greatly appreciate your sympathetic consideration of tho foregoing at an early date.
