Reports on activities of Pepin Rivero, recent purchaser of La Prensa in New York; believes Rivero will support inter-American cooperation and will not approve interference from Spain; in spite of close contacts with Falange in Cuba, he is not really active in movement and may exercise good influence; new Spanish Consul General in Cuba obliged to leave Mexico because of activities objectionable to Mexican government and when previously in Cuba was believed to be plotting against government; was announced in Spain that he would head Falange in Cuba; if Cuba accepts this, no reason why German Minister should not openly be head of Cuban Nazi organization; Cuban Government has not so far recognized new Spanish Consul General; seems to be close association in Cuba between German, Italian, and Japanese Ministers, and chiefs of mission of Argentina, Chile, and Peru.
