Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta August 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HEftAlD 31 Cuba after the big celebration By HAROLD MORRISON CP Foreign Editor HAVANA The curtain has come down on one of the greatest spectacles ever staged in the Western a mixture of carnival and propa- ganda in celebration of a revo- lution that steadily tightens the Communist grip over the Cuban people. But what lasting impact Pre- mier Fidel Castro hopes to achieve with his 20th-anni- versary to which hundreds of foreign guests were is still a matter of con- jecture among visitors including some still stranded here waiting for Cuba to provide sufficient aircraft to lift them off this island. Diplomatic observers calcu- lated that the cost of the huge carnival -with street dances in- volving thousands of the big pre-anniversary military the mass desmonstra- tion of gymnastics and spe- cially-prepared ballets and the cost of feeding and fly- ing the special guests must have run into millions of dol- lars. The propoganda out-pouring reached a pitch that many including newspaper men from Communist and non- Communist figured Castro was deliberately building up expectations that fell some- what flat with a July 26 speech dealing more with history than with major pronouncements of policy. Every organ of controlled communication turned the anni- versary limelight on Castro whose familiar military figure and philosophical sayings domi- nated the tele- magazines and films. CASTRO KEY MAN Amply clear to the visitors was that whose unsuc- cessful 1953 attack on a military barracks launched the revolu- remains the central figure in development of a Communist system propped up at every turn by Soviet military and eco- nomic aid. Soviet rockets and jets provide the steel fist of the Cuban defence force. Rus- sian trucks and Ilyushin planes provide the main commercial transport. Cuban shops still show evi- dence of scarcities. The ration card has brought improvements in the last few especially for those Cubans who excel in carrying out government pro- grams. But meat and fruit juice are still being doled out with like care. The anniversary military re- view last week showed some of the finest equipment money can buy but some of the decaying wrecks which pass for civilian cars merely add emphasis to the scarcities. New apartment blocks for workers have sprung up in the suburbs of Havana and San- tiago de Cuba but the country also contains some of the most desperate slums in the Western Hemisphere. Armed police and soldiers are on guard augu- mented by a huge security force of plainclothesmen. But in some Havana hotels the chrome fittings on the water taps have the hope of hot water disappeared long the rugs are worn the dust in corners of rooms is the lampshades are cracked and mildew runs up the walls. Hospital construction also has been accelerated. Compulsory work for men la part of the law and women also are encouraged to work full time.

Stone age find claim disputed By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service YORK A Texas geology professor has express- Mi serious doubts regarding claims of the late Louis S. B. Leakey and other persons that man was making stone tools in California before the last ice age. In 1968 Leakey and his co- workers had identified 200 pieces of chert or chalcedony two forms of or flint- like rock from a site in the foothills of the Calico Mountains of California as being man- made. Several hundred more specimens were suspected as having bean in part be- cause of their proximity to the others. The skeptical analysis is by Dr. Vance Haynes of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. For several years he has ques- tioned the finds and his views have bsen published as the lead article in the current is- sue of organ of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. YEARg OLD The formation with which the stones are associated lies near and beneath a surface deposit of artifacts that are clearly manmade and of msre recent origin. the deeper Haynes is at least years old. Apart from those who believe in the authenticity of the Cali- co the predominant view is that man first reached the Americas over the Bering land bridge between and years ago. A 1968 report to signed by Ruth de Ette Simpson and Thomas set forth their arguments in avor of human action. noted for his excavations of lummanoid remains in had chosen the excavation which was dug under the direc- ion of Miss Simpson of the San Bernardino Museum in Calif. Clements was with the University of Southern California. Some of the specimens from this dig were the result of human they said. The stones in ques- they seemed to have been chosen as particu- larly well suited for such work and were not found in the same abundance in nearby test Haynes concedes that the flintlike specimens were shap- ed by blows from other rocks. But he questions whether this resulted from human activity or from natural processes. He argues that the specimens were for their worked-on from among thou- sands that display various de- grees of chipping. None of the he are clearly manmade as for from the Chellean period in traditionally regarded as the oldest of stone age cultures years ago. Nor are they as impressive as the artifacts of the subsequent Levallois and Mousterian cul- in the European chrono- logy. One of the arguments in favor of human occupancy of the advanced at a 1970 confer- ence on the was the existence of an alleged hearth- stone whose magnetic proper- ties suggested repeated heating by fire. It possible the lightning could have pro- duced the same accord- ing to Haynes. master clown Kelly keeps Weary Willie alive SAN FRANCISCO need to keep Willie said the great clown Emmett whose tattered character brought laughter to nearly two generations of children of all ages. At Kelly admits his craggy face is still most at home beneath greasepaint. But even without the master clown cannot help but peer out of the sad eyes of Weary the bulb-nosed tramp. He has been gone from the circus sawdust for IB years. He now spends winters at his home and summers performing at a Lake Tahoe casino. Kelly said in an interview yesterday he created his Weary Willie character origi- nally as a pen-and-ink cartoon which he briefly considered doing for the newspapers. But he said he decided to become Weary Willie instead.
