'"Bolivia is pioneering territory

Wayne E. White
Bolivia, my country, in spite of the
fact that she ranks fourth among
the South American countries in
area, is less known to the average
North American than are many of
our neighbors.
Her estimated area of more than
430.000 square miles with a population of nearly 5,000,000 souls, most
of it concentrated on altitudes over
8000 feet above sea level, gives us
an idea of the desolation and emptiness of the remainder.
Within this tremendous expansion
Bolivia enjoys the temperature and
vegetation of glacial and torrid
zones. The perpetually
mountains find their basins on
the green pastures of our plains. The
jungles with their myteries hide
their treasures jealously to strangers.

he may also see the llamas and
burros of the Indians. He may find
modern stores selling goods known
all over the world, but he will also
notice the yet costumary clothes of
the primitives.
A detailed study of the Bolivian
industry shows that Bolivia's foreign money comes almost in its totality from the exportation of minerals. From her mines the cassi-tericoncentrate was obtained to
be refined and converted into important products required by the
Allied Powers during World War n.
