Ty-l HIGH IN A WIND-SWEPT ANDEAN PASS, THE PRINCE OF PEACE PROCLAIMS A MESSAGE OF INTERNATIONAL GOOD WILL A quarter of a century ago, the "Christ of the Andes" was placed in the Pass of Uspallata, more than 12,000 feet above the sea, on the border between Chile and Argentina. It was cast from bronze cannon of the two nations, and stands as an emblem of their adherence to the doctrine of "peace on earth, good will to men." The Transandine Railway burrows through the Continental Divide near here, one end of the tunnel being in Chile and the other in Argentina.
