Castro-brand communism just 90 miles off U.S shores has changed greatly from my last trip there in December 1960 Cuba today is a country struggling with the usual problems of undeveloped tries hunger quate housing lack of education and health care But there are many signs that the elaborate social grams of the Communist system there are working and that the average Cuban ing man and farmer is better off today than he was in the days before 1959 when the revolution as the Cuban Communists continually say I last went to Havana as a Rhode Island to see for myself what conditions were like Last weekend I returned to Havana with Sen Jacob K Javits of New York again to find out what conditions were like We were received warmly by Cuban officials and met for a total of more than in hours with t he highes t nt leaders including Prime Minister Fidel Castro The biggest change I noticed from 1960 was the almost complete absence of weapons and of policemen on the streets of Havana Cars and trucks were in much poorer shape Many of the cars on the road were badly deteriorated American models The modern vehicles we saw were either Russian or Japanese At the fishing fleet's repair port I noticed that the new machine In general the Russian influence al m ost stent 14 years ago was now very apparent Havana harbor was filled with Soviet vessels including modern missile and fishing ships In Cuba today clothing and staples are rationed and prices are lower than in this country Luxury goods however are very expensive Havana itself is a startling mixture of the old and new In many places it has the look of a blighted American city in the process of urban renewal The Cubans are extremely proud of the great progress they have made in education Both the percentage of children who attend school and the rate of literacy have improved greatly since 1959 and modern schools are being built everywhere The health care system also has been improved After 1959 more than half of the island's doctors fled Today according to Cuban figures there are doctors with more being ed each year At present there is one doctor for every Cubans Our final evening was spent dining and talking with Fidel Castro a man of curious contrast I had expected to find an aging burly loud I found instead a relatively shy man young for his years and softspoken We came away from our meeting with the view that there will be no abrupt return to normal relations between our countries But I believe Cubans are ready for a step-by-step ment into the family of the Americas
