    Background: In view of America's decision to patrol the troubled Caribbean area off Guatemala and Nicaragua, great interest was shown recently when twenty-two warships of the United States, Brazil, Argentine, and Uruguayan navies combined with aircraft of the Brazilian Air Force in manoeuvres off Porto Alegre, Brazil, beginning Nov 24.

    Naval experts say it was significant that the manoeuvres concentrated on improving methods of detecting and destroying submarines.

    Aware of growing communist influence in the Latin American hemisphere, the United States is encouraging closer co-operation between the countries concerned.
