And the fourth horseman is rationing a n d regimentation. There are complaints, but noth- ing in the atmosphere indicates a change toward liljcralization in the immediate future. No one seems to iw starvini yet the amounts of food doled out to the populace contrast sharply with what is available to foreign visitors and the "new class" of government bureau- crats. The average Cuban is allowed a maximum of 12 ounces of meat a week and similarly low quantities of eggs, coffee, milk, and other foods.

The merchandise in the hole: shop is of export quality, mainly sold abroad to earn hard cur- rency or amortize gargantuan debts run up with the Commun- ist bloc. The average Cuban is ra- tioned to 40 cigarettes a month. These arc of such poor quality that they keep going but several times before smoked to the end. And yet these feeble cigarettes fetch the equivalent of a pack on the black market. The Revolutionary Armed Forces, headed by Castro's younger brother Raul, appear to exercise absolute control. What little escapes them is scruti- nized by a host of repressive organizations: The state secu- rity system, once known as G- 2-plus the watchdog Committees for (.he Defence of the Revolu- tion and the machine that indoc- trinates youngsters with a steady political diet from the age of four onward. YOUNGSTERS WATCHED As youngsters grow up they 100 Copies plus tax are watched over by the Com- munist Youth, who keep a close eye on high schools and univer- sities. By the time a Cuban marries and" settles down like his will be under constant surveillance by a Committee for the Defence of the Revolution. Tlicse are neighborhood groups made up of Castroite stalwarts who keep watch over a block !M hours a day. They report to secu- rity offices the comings and goings of neighbors and stran- gers, the arrival of suspicious objects. They also control the distribution of food-rationing rationed. Like food, tliey have nol been freely available for 10 years. Foreign dignitaries and advis- ers from the Communist bloc have special off lim- its to normal where quality, quantify and variety higher than are considerably elsewhere.

But there is grumbling, especially among those who be- longed to the now-wilted middle class. Foods and beverages North Americans lake for granted have long disappeared from the average Cuban table.

Toiletries are also drastically quickly to the luxuries offered by their positions. They ride sleek, Italian-built Alfa Romeo cars and live in spacious villas. Like many other people living in a totalitarian system, most Cubans seem resigned to their current situation. Those with the regime heap praise "on our friends, the as a cab driver told me.

Texas Gulf firm hearing denied Instant Print Copy Di7. U69 WASHINGTON (AP) Texas Gulf Sulphur Co. and nine offi- cials and employees were de- nied a healing by the U.S. Su- preme Court today in a case that may set a precedent gov- erning stock market trading by corporate insiders. Lower federal courts have found the company and the nine individuals violated federal law and securities regulations de- signed to guard against fraud. In appeals filed in September, the nine persons and the com- pany challenged the judgments, claiming freedom of speech had been abridged, and requested a hearing. A toast to the qood times The court made no comment in denying (lie review. The east; grows out of a major discovery of zinc, copper and silver by Texas Gulf near Timmins, Out. and a relea.se distributed at a news conference April announcing the discovery and casting doubt on its imporatnce. The company said the release was issued in response to false and exaggerated rumors re- garding the drilling operations. that it confirmed drilling and warned against accepting gerated rumors as fact. A U.S. district court in New York found the release was "misleading to the reasonable investor using due care." The U.S. Circuit Court in New York agreed and held that news releases, like other reports sub- mitted by companies under the federal securities laws, are not under the free-speech protection of the American constitution. The courts found that before the announcement was suffi- ciently disseminated to the pub- lic, several officers, directors and employees of Texas Gulf, possessing various degrees of information about the results of the drilling, engaged in illegal securities transactions. The appeal, signed by Orison R. .AU.rden, a Wall Street law- yer who is a former president of the American Bar Association, spoke also for Charles F. Fo- garty, executive vice president and a director of Texas Gulf Sulphur; Richard D. Mollison, vice-president; Claude p. Ste- phens, president and a director; and Harold B. Kline, vice-presi- dent and general counsel. They have been found lo have accepted stock options in viola- tion of federal law and SEC rules. Separate appeals were filed by Earl L. a Texas Gulf Sulphur lawyer; David M. Crawford, corporate secretary and public relations manager: and by Walter and Ken- neth II. Darke, geologists, and Richard II. Clayton, an engi- neer.
