liberated his people from the Batista dictator ship is finding it hard to say anything good of the country which helped to liberate Cuba from Spain Fidel Castro is put out with the United part be cause defectors from his revo lutionary government have found refuge here but apparent ly more because Americans have dared to suggest that Cuba is in some risk of slipping under the dictatorship of international communism SIGNS OF strong Communist influence in the Castro govern ment are all around Meanwhile Cuba land reform is being carried on with little regard for rights of former own ers and with state operation of large properties instead of dis tribution among small farmers seemingly the main objective Through all this the United States has tried to be patient It has not opposed larfd reform only sought fair compensation for the numerous American owners of sugar and ranch lands It has refrained from re ducing Cubas share of the US sugar market It has tried to stop illegal flights out of Florida by or on behalf of Cuba refu gees It has returned its am bassador to Havana after an initial recall so that no oppor tunity for conciliation will be lost While Cuba now seems to be i nj e r n ational communisms main target in this part of the world it has been suggested that Moscow probably is most interested in using the island as a platform for pressing political offensives in other Latin Amer ican of all Bra zil where there is a large de pressed population DEMANDS IN South and Cen tral America for more rapid economic development offer fer tile ground for Red propaganda

Soviet Union and its satel lites have been pushing for ex pansion of commerce with Latin America for the past half dozen years By 1959 however their trade accounted for only 2 per cent of the areas foreign trade while the US share was 47 per cent and Western Europes 28 pei cent Most of the Soviet bloc trade moreover was with Argentina Brazil Cuba and Uruguay Communists therefore have some way to go before they be come real economic rivals of the free world in Latin Amer ica However the process might be sharply accelerated by an actual Communist takeover in one or more countries Such a development probably would give the Reds a big boost in popular esteem and so increase antiYankee and proCommunist pressures THE US IN earlier days did not hesitate to intervene in Car ibbean countries when North American security or the lives or property of American citi zens were threatened Until 1934 the Platt Amendment gave a treaty right to intervene in Cuba to preserve that countrys inde pendence and maintain a gov ernment adequate for the pro tection of life properly and in dividual liberty Under the Good Neighbor policy the Platl Amendment was revoked and the United States adhered to various interAmerican conven tions barring intervention by one country in the affairs of an other Numerous resolutions directed against Communist subversion were adopted by the American republics after World War II Resolutions now pending in the House and Senate at Wash ington would provide a similar procedure in the case of a pros pective American victim of in ternational communism Such a procedure it is urged would avoid the perhaps fatal delay in volved in going through Rio pact formalities and also avoid the stigma of an independent viola tion of the cherished principle of

provide a new program of medical care for the aged The compromise which won support from Democrats on the House Ways Means committee would add an op tional program on hospitali zation insurance to the
