194? Figure CLARENCE WOODROW SORENSEN F.R.G.S. Figure CBS Staff Foreign Correspondent NATIONAL LECTURE BUREAU, INC. 1811 Larchmont Avenue, Chicago, Illinois Announcing three Latin American features 69 CLARENCE WOODROW SORENSEN As CBS staff foreign correspondent Clarence Sorensen is continuing a work that has taken him through thirty-five countries. He first packed his bags to watch Hitler's rise to power. He covered the Arab world, Cairo to Baghdad to Bombay. For achievements in exploration he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London. Burma or Buenos Aires, Singapore or Santiago, all are familiar … to a citizen of all the world. Supplementing two famous lectures still available … Censorship and News Propaganda Clashing Empires in Arabia WITH FILMS TYPICAL ENGAGEMENTS Council on Foreign Relations Chicago, Ill. Rochester Ad Club Rochester, N. Y. Hovey Institute Waltham, Mass. Association of Commerce Chicago, Ill. World Adventure Series Detroit, Mich. Evanston Woman's Club Evanston, Ill. The Geographic Society Chicago, Ill. This Is South America To answer just one question this correspondent sailed in 1941 to visit every country south of Panama. Is South America on our side, or playing with the opposing team? So Clarence Sorensen talked to the Presidents of the Republics, to miners of copper in Chile, to Indians in Paraguay, to meat packers in Buenos Aires. When there were no direct statements, he read the attitudes of the peoples themselves. Over the network of the COLUMBIA BROADCASTING SYSTEM he reported weekly, as the story became clear regarding hemisphere solidarity. The answer is not in one word. Mr. Sorensen did find a new spirit in Latin countries. And while many will describe in lurid terms the menace to cooperation, something may also be said about Uncle Sam's job in being a good neighbor. What of the people of South America? Understanding is not built by quoting statistics alone. They are persons, Pedro and Eduardo and Lopez. And then I met Carlos and Maria on the Parana river steamer … This is South America went to millions on the air. The complete story is now available for your audience. Figure Argentine-La Plata Empire Documentary film in Kodachrome This is more than Buenos Aires, with its neon lights, subways and New York styles. A great empire lies far beyond. This Empire of La Plata, river of silver which has no silver, begins with the famed pampas, where fences are wide apart as meridians on a map (Fortune). It ends somewhere in the Andes of Chile, and the Matto Grosso of Brazil. A documentary film takes you there, up the Parana river into the Chaco of many wars and primitive tribes, across Paraguay and Uruguay, past estancias and the cutters of quebracho, to the meat packers and crowded docks of a world capitol. Gateway to an empire is grownup Argentina. Mexico Swings to the Right Documentary film in Kodachrome As CBS correspondent Clarence Sorensen knows Mexico, from President Avila Camacho to the peons in the mountains of Hidalgo. And, once a student at the National University, he likes Mexico's people. This film is not a travelogue, but an authentic record of stupendous social and economic change … communal farms, worker-owned industries, expropriation … and now Mexico swings from left to right, toward private ownership, again. This is Mexico, a neighbor many tourists visit but few actually see.
