BRE WSTER HERALD Two (rest' Capitol of Argentina end Gongreu Square, Buenos Aires. (Prepared by the National Geographl Society, Washington, D. C.) N OPPOSITE sides of the wide estuary of the Rio de la Plata, only a few hours steaming distance apart, lie two of South America's greatest cities Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, and Montevideo, capital of Uruguay. Buenos Aires means "good airs," or J'dellghtful breezes," if one is willing to translate less Literally. The city is not merely the capital and chief port of a South American republic. It is a world eenter--a city of superlatives, contrasts and paradoxes. Its population of slightly more than 2,000,000 makes it, by a wide margin" the metropolis of South America and the southern hemispliere. It is the greatest of Spanish-speaking clues, having nearly three times as many in. habitants as Madrid. It Is greater than any other Latin city except Paris. In the New worlH it shares third place with Phlladelpllia; only 'ew York and Chicago surpass it. And now that Petrograd and Moscow have shrunk while Vienna ts marking time, it probably ranks or soon will rank as the eighth clty of the world. led only by the three metropolises of Europe (London, Berlin and Paris) the two of North America (New York and Chicago), and Tokyo and Osaim in Asia. This great city is tile focus of the culture, thought, politics, economics, and social life of Argentina as well fls the funnel through which pour the millions of pounds of dressed meats and the millions of bushels of wheat which make up the contribution of the republic to the hungry peoples of the Old world. Its language Is the lan guage of Spain, but many other things Spanish have been flrust aside. Its inhabitants would laugh at the idea of a midday siesta--so generally ob- served in most Spanish-American countries. The rapid development of Argentina has made innumerable for- tunes, and the stream of gold has been poured lavishly into the lap of Buenos Aires. In no other city, per- haps, can one see so Strikingly dis- played the evidences of extreme opu- lence. Making a Marvelous City. In progress and the possession of vlsion the people of Buenos Aires are unsurpassed even by the restless builders of North America's greatest cltles. For centuries after Its estab- lishment Buenos Aires was without a port. Ships anchored miles from tile shallow, sandy shore and all freight was handled in lighters. With- in the last twenty-five years the mu- nicipality has constructed the largest artificial docks in the weNd. These provide adequate facilities for tile thousands of ocean vessels and coast- ing craft that put into its port an- nually. The narrow checker-board of streets la the business center which the colo- nial Buenos Aires bequeathed to the world-city of today has been a con- stant embarrassment in the face of the demands of modern business. The municipality has widened some of these narrow ways at a cost of many millions of dollars, into stately and handsome avenues, and is carving other arteries of traffic diagonally through the closely packed squares. In tile newer parts of tile city sSreets of ample width and numerous broad avenues have been laid out. Many of tne avenues are lined with the costly palaces of Argentina's mul- timillionaires. It is in this part of the city and in such semi-business ave- nues as the tree-trimmed Avenida de Mayo with its mile or more of fine ho- tels, clubs, cafes, and business build- Ings de luxe, that Buenos Aires re- minds the traveler of Paris. The com- parison Is forced on the observer again when he drives In the afternoon througll Palermo park, the Bets de Boulogne of Buenos Aires, and be- comes a part of the seemingly inter- ruinable procession of smart equipages bearing their throng of well-dressed men and women. The men of Buenos Aires are up-to 'date in all things; but its women are even ahead of the times. They wear the latest paris creations even before . they are donned by the Parlslennes themselves. Climate must be given Its rightful place in the explanation of this paradox. Summer models are designed in Paris in December, and the reversal of the seasons south of the Equator makes these seemingly premature creations fitting attire, tn Buenos Aires in January and February when they reach the beau monde of that distant metropolis. Buenos Aires Is in the south latitude correspond lag to that of Charleston, S. C., north of the Equator, and has a climate somewhat like that of the country be- tween Cllarleston and  Norfolk, though drier. WNU Service Montevideo, on the northern shore of the estuary, presents in its tempo something of a contrast to Buenos Aires. Physically, it is situated so that it is one of the healthiest cities in the world, and it has an equable clinmte which makes it a delightful place to live in. In addition it pos- sesses an atmosphere free from the bustle and noise of the more modern and eomlnercial Buenos Aires and the more metropolitan Rio. Because of these features, Montevideo has become the resort city of South America's At- lantic coast. Thousands of wealthy South Americans are to be found there at nearly all seasons of the year, par- ticipating in the carnivals, gambling in the great government-owned ca- sinos that may be compared to those of Monte Carlo, or merely enjoying the restful life of this city which still clings to the Spanish habit of look- ing to "manana." Since Montevideo is in the southern hemisphere its sea- sons are the reverse of those in the United States. Visitors are especially numerous for the bathing season which begins in October, correspond- ing to tile northern May, nnd is at its height at Christmas, the southern midsummer. Detached impressions of Monte- Video will bring to mind many similes and contrasts with better known cities. Like New York it covers a narrow strip of land from shore to shore, in this case a peninsula. But in arclli- tecture it is the antithesis of the North American metropolis, being made up of a seemingly vast number of low stone buildings, a few two or three stories in height, the great ma- Jority of them but,one story. The principal thoroughfare, "The Avenue of the Eighteenth of July," extndhlg along the ridge of the peninsula, with 8TORY FROM THE START Returning to America, durln the War of 1812, after a success- ful voyage, CapL Lion Fellowcs' merchant ship Sacllem is sunk oil Portugal by a British frigate.

"I'm loath to dis oblige you, ma'am. But 'tls wartime" and I'd not care to betray my senti- ments." Miss lnglepin blushed crimson; her slim body stiffened. "And we have no wish to 'betray you, sir," she said coldly. "You mistake my meaning, ma'am,' protested Fellowea, much perturbed. "I merely tried to make It clear that In accepting your offer I was not abandoning my own opinions." "Naow, naow, there ain't any call to be het up over a misunderstandin'l We want a mate, and we want Cap's Fellowes for the Job--and he won't need to comphlin over his treatment." Chafer struck in. But Captain Fellowes must decide for himself," insisted Miss Inglepin. "And he must decide In light of the fact--" "Daou't say nothln' ye'd be sorry for, MISs Cara." warned Chater.

Evidence of this fact is sometimes wafted on the winds when they blow to the city from the seat of the gigantic industry across the bay. Clings to Old Customs. In physical equipment Montevideo Is modern. It IS well lighted, well watered, adequately supplied with transportation facilities, and most ad- mirably drained. Socially it clings to the past, following more faith- fully than any other large city out- side of Spain and the Orient Hm old Spanish-Moorish traditions of society's )roper attitude toward women. Courting Is still carried on by smit- ten swains parading below tlle bal- conies of their senorltas and whisper- ing sweet ngthiffgs to them--from a safe distance. Ladies go freely on the streets but not in the company of men. "Society is mainly a matter of family parties. Even at the opera there are separate galleries for men and women, and unless a Montevidtan family man can afford the price of orchestra seats he must view the proJ duction from one level while his wife looks on from another. A cloistered life can hardly be said to have affected the appearance of the women adversely. Throughout South America Montevideo has the reputation formerly possessed by Bud- apest of harboring the most beautiful women of its continent. Montevideo has nearly a score of dally newspapers, and the voices of small army of newsboys are heard constantly except during an hour and a half at midday when a "siesta" is enforced by law for all business. With the voices of the newsboys mingl e those of youths and derelict adults hawking government lottery tickets or boxes of .matches from the sale of which the government also obtains revenue. Just as Uruguay is free from phy- sical extremes--it is without moun- tains or gorges, deserts or: Jungles--so Montevideo is without social ex- tremes. It has no squalid slums and no ostentatious ,'millionaires' row." It may not Inaptly be dubbed a comfort- able bourgeois paradise. Montevideo is famed for its port which Is one of the best on the At- lantic coast of the Americas.

And as a in him a respect all the greater for great packing center for the live stock the concern Chafer displayed. produced on the unsurpassed pastures "If you feel so, ma'am, I can but applaud your honesty In admitting It," he said. "Shall we elect to forget politics? And will It please you that i accept Captain (:hater's offer?" She swallowed hard, a suspicion of tears In her eyes. "It will not please me," she an swered. "And yet--and yet--you had best come. Good afternoon, sir. Cap. fain Chater will escort you aboard." And she swept regally Into the he. tel, the monstrous attendunt waddling at her heels. Chater'whinnied pineal, Ingly : "Naow, naowl You daon't want to set too much store by wlmmin's talk. 'Has a lot on her mind. Miss Cara has. Fast off, her ma dled.

Evidently Chater was fighting shy of his own countrymen. Barred, as he was, from ar#y bond of sympathy with his brother officers It was Inevitable that Fellowes should be tlwown more and more in Miss Inglepln's company.
