   Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1962, Abilene, Texas                               "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT OT svx3i 82ND YEAR, NO. 68 PAGE Mrs. Carlos. Garcia, Green, teaches Spanish private- ly as a tutor, publicly as in- structor at Madison Junior High School. Beginning Sept. 13 she will have a special class in English. The new class will meet for two hours each Thursday eve- ning in a room at the downtown First Baptist Church. The "students" will be adults, adults who are educated highly. One is a physician, one a teacher now working at a garment factory. One is a woman who lacks but a year on her doctor's degree. One is a beautician, one a janitor who was once a contractor building Cuban roads and parks. Most of the students can read and write English as an edu- cated American might another tongue. It's conversational Eng- lish that's their barrier and that Mrs. Garcia, for no' pay, will be teaching them so they can more easily buy groceries, get directions, make friends, im- prove their economic lot. There will be in the class some from various Latin lands. But the core of the group will be a dozen or so adult Cubans, refugees now living quietly among us. The class has come about because Mrs. Garcia, native American who was reared in Cuba, and her husband. Cuban native now a naturalized Amer- ican and pastor of the local First Mexican Baptist Church, have come to be an unofficial "Cuban Refugee The Garcias arc Americans and they know America, living in the U.S. since the late 1940s when they came to junior col- lege in North Carolina, in Abi- lene since they came to cnm- plete degree work at Karelin- Simmons.

Rather, they wonder about the lime and the money to do what is begging to be done. By RAYMOND CROWLEY WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy, stressing repeatedly that Russia is ahead in creating big rockets necessary for far- flung space travel, predicted Wednesday that by 1970 the Unit- ed States will overtake its Soviet rival. As if to squelch some subordi- nate officials who have tended downgrade the exploits of the cos- monaut twins, Kennedy used the word "behind" seven times in re- ferring to the U.S. position.

We started he said, but a tremendous effort is now under way. This year's space budget, he said, is greater "than the com- bined space budgets of the pre- vious eight years." The President also: 1. Announced that two U.S. nu- to clear submarines have made a "historic rendezvous" under the north polar icecap. The U.S.S. Skate sailed from the Atlantic and the U.S.S. Seadragon from the Pacific. After meeting, they sur- faced together through a small opening in the ice at the North Pole. They are now en route home. 2. Served notice that the So- viets' latest move in Berlin can- not "affect our rights." The So- viets abolished Wednesday their commandant's office in step which many officials viewed: as part of the long Kremlin ef- fort to turn East Berlin over to the Communist East German re- gime and press the Western gar- risons out of Berlin. 3. Disclosed that Fidel Castro's Cuba has recently received large quantities of additional supplies from Communist-bloc countries, plus more, technicians. Asked the significance of Ihis, Kennedy said, "We are examining it now." But he said there was no evidence any forthcoming Cuban opera- tions against any other Central American country. 4. Brushed aside a charge by George M. Humphrey, Republican former secretary of the treasury, that a Senate investigation of stockpiling sales by Humphrey companies is "a stab in the back" aimed at former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Kennedy said "Congress ought to do its that there are "extremely large profits" involved in stock piling, and it is important for the I people to know who makes money. The President said of cases will come under investiga- tion after the probe of Hum- phrey's M. A. Hanna companies. A reporter told Kennedy there have been rumors that Premier Khrushchev will the United Nations session in New York this fall, and asked it might be useful for the men to meet again. I don't know whether he Kennedy replied. its have received no about it. Of course, if he did come, he would would hope the I would have a talk with him. hope to see whatever heads of nedy't other government that come in the call for the U.N. session."

FAY Austin Without Rainfall for 53 Consecutive Days Try at Slaying De Gaulle Fails Prexy's Car Hit By Shots Related story, Pg. 3-A By RODNEY ANGOVE and PATRICK MCNULTY PARIS IAP) Assassins in a roadside ambuscade shot out the rear window and two tires of President Charles de Gaulle's speeding official car in a quiet suburb Wednesday night but he and his party came through un- hurt. Oilier cars, a member of De Gaulle's escort, a passerby and a nearby shop were hit by bullets without serious injury or dam- age. The attack involving two vehi- cles and hastily set up gun posts apparently had some strategic planning but was unaccountably bolched in execution.
