Associated Pm and United International Full Wire MASON OWAf WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 30 I960 neighbors Tc a Paper Consists Four Erbe confers with solons To give up bases in Caribbean No longer are needed By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHING TONAmerican alacrity in giving up West In dies military bases which this nation has a right to hold until the year 2039 is understandable from several points of view not excluding that of national se curity With the P o 1 a r i sarmed George Washington already on patrol most of our bases in the Caribbean are on the way to obsolefice As every sister ship joins the pioneer nuclear weapon submarine these bases become less and less valuable though continuing to be expen sive THE CEL E BR AT E D de stroyersbases deal with Great Britain in 1940 through which the Indies bases as well as bases in Newfoundland and Bermuda were acquired stip ulated that the leases would be free from all rent Neverthe less they are costly to operate We have laid out million on the base at Chaguaramas on FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES DBS MOINES Go velect Norman Erbe and Republican legislators held a get ac quainted meeting here Wed nesday There were reports however that some of the GOP lawmak ers were a little miffed at Erbe because he didnt schedule the meeting in conjunction with the prelegislative session Repub lican caucus PURPOSE of the meeting Erbe said is to give the newly elected legislators a chance to get acquainted with the hold over legislators and for me and Bill Mooty to g e t acquainted with the ones we dont know Mooty was elected lieutenant governor in the Nov 8 general election SOME OF THE legislators were annoyed with Erbe for calling the informal get ac quainted meeting for Wednes day instead of holding it at the same time as the presession caucus Republican This they said makes it necessary for them to attend two meetings before the legislative session One legislator recalling the difficulties of former Gov Leo Hoegh with the Republican ma jority in the commented 1955 Legislature Erbe is getting Trinidad which incidentally office off to a worse start than Hoegh did The date for the caucus hasnt yet been announced Several veteran legislators say theyd like to have it in mid December on a weekend MEANWHILE SOME sources said Gov Herschel C Loveless probably will remain in Iowa in the next two years a comeback for the governors i vi 11 HECKLERS OUTSIDE MINISTERS HOUSE Women jeer in front of house of the Eev Lloyd Foreman New Orleans after he took his daughter into a back door of integrated William Frantz School to avoid them Crowd challenges him to come out Woman AP Photofax stretching out bandana threatens to put it around his neck They want a total white boycott of the school attended by one Negro girl Only a few white students are attending we still want to use In a propaganda sense the foresight with which the US State Department moved to meet the islands desire to as sume control over the bases is a telling reply to Nikita Khrush chevs fulminations on colo nialism and US bases abroad It should not be lost either on Fidel Castro nor should the West Indies Federa tions pledge to cooperate in whatever would strengthen mu tual security and contribute to the continuing defense of the Western Hemisphere and the democratic world Finally this is a friendly ges ture to the islands now Brit ish colonies but soon to become an independent Commonwealth federation As the London The sources said Loveless would be more likely to run again for the governorship rather than take a crack at the US

appoint ment sources said the governor Louisiana schools integration to proceed three judges rule would prefer ness which free to set up his next political a private busi would keep him campaign Loveless who was defeated Times points out the good will of the new West Indies govern ernment is likely to be more important for the effective func tioning of the remaining base areas than legal rights under a treaty signed with the British government THE QUESTION of Chagua ramas as indicated remains to be negotiated We consider the 18squaremile base on Trini other to hemispheric defense Unfor tunately the islanders want ro establish their new federal cap ital there Perhaps our willing ness to withdraw from a de activated area will satisfy them Also whereas the British had proposed mutual consultation when possible on our remain ing military installations Dr Eric Williams premier of Trin idad advocates joint operation This too appears a matter for compromise Two bases on Trinidad are involved as well as installations on Antigua Ja maica and St Lucia THE DEAL IN September 1940 under which the W e s t In dies bases were acquired on a 99year lease is described in de tail by Sir Winston Churchill The British wanted the lease offer to appear as an independ ent generous gesture after which we would turn over to Britain 50 overage destroyers for antisubmarine used in the Battle of the Atlantic For con stitutional reasons President Roosevelt wanted both transfers to appear part of the same bar gain Each presented the deal to his own lawmakers in his own fashion neither contra dicted the other It was a historic transaction As Churchill candidly recounts it was an event which brought the United States definitely nearer to us and to the war and it was the first of a
