Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wetlnonioy, April 5 .197? THE LETHBflDGt HrRAlD The (luban xi New society for young HAVANA (CI'l An occa- i sional weather-beaten Coca- Cola sign that has survival in Cuba now is an wWily and (he new ndveriisemenls prodimn socialist values. Hip emphasis seems to he on building I e, work hard, tolerate rations. Another common theme is popular support for programs to build a new socialist soci- ety: "Everytlu'ng is possible with The signs along highways in j Ihe rural areas call tor mulled roil net iv c ctlort during "zafra '72." Kafra means the crop year and Llie word can apply la any crop bill it usually refers lo the sugar crop. Protest signs are rarely seen. The only ones I saw were single words painted on a wall near the University ot Havana: "Meat? Water? Lib- erly1.'" The ration for meal- mostly a half-pound a week anr! the Havana water system lias been in poor con- dition for decades. The political messages af- firm solidarity wilh revolu- tionary movements in other countries. The fighling in i Vietnam is seen as n war of liberation for (he Vietnamese. On a Saturday in February F.t the largest hotel at Yarad- ere resort area in evening cn- i tertainmcnt was n Japanese film preceded by a documen- tary made in Vietnam by a Cuban film crew. The movie was sliown with a Ifi-milli- melre projector and a wall of the hotel was used for a screen. The temporary thea- tre wc-s the hotel patio. Tue audience included foreign tourists, primarily from so- cialist countries, and honey- mooners. Cuban couples get about a week free at a hotel vvlKNi they The documentary slwwed Vietnam buttle sienes and the sub-litlcs in Spanish explained j the "heroic struggle" of the Vietnamese against "Yankee imperialism." NIXON OUTS SWASTIKA T lie Cuba n daily news- pajjers have reported sympa- thetically and in detail on tire trial at" San Jose, Calif., of Angela Davis, a black mili- tant and member of Ihe U.S. Communist party who is ac- cused of murder, kidnapping and conspiracy. When President N i x o n 's name is mentioned in the newspapers the V is always replaced by a swastika. Most bad news comes from abroad and domestic news is concen- trated on government, slate, industry snd worker accom- plishments. Foreign residents say there is a good selection of films (mm socialist countries and American films regularly ap- pear in Cuban theatres. The U.S. films, however, are a few years old. Those playing at Havana theatres in February included Gigi, Who's Afraid of Virginia Journey to the Centre of tile Earth and Days of Wine and Roses. OM I'.S movies also appear frequently on lalc-nigllt televi- are two channels. 'Hie American inovics on tele- vision usually are those made in the 1930s' and 10 His when tile Hollywood industry suc- cessfully exported an image of American affluence, movies are in English willi Spanish sub-lilies. USK I'Lli.Sr NAME Old D.S'.-mado cartoons for children also appear regularly on television. Cuban-made television pro- grams are low-budget produc- tions and many are musical variety When Fide! Castro is men- tioned in the newspajjers lie is identified as the first secre- tary of the central committee of the I Cuban Communist i party and prime minister of tile revoiulionai-y government. But Cubans refer to him sim- ply as. Fidel imd even critics I say his personal popularity is immense. i Fidel's picture, however, is not displayed prominently in public buildings. It is a pic- ture of Che Guevara, who was killed while fighting with a guerrilla band in Bolivia, that is most frequently seen in public buildings, factories and schools.
