The fast will continue "as long as it takes lo get the funds to help young parolees break a vicious says Mr. Bergevin. "The big companies won't hire them because ex-convicts can't be bonded. In other words, insurance companies won't insure them. So the par- I olee has nothing and ends up in trouble again." For more than a year. Mr. Bergevin has been trying to establish a network of work- shops where parolees can learn a skill. "I'm hoping for donations from individuals and particu- larly from large companies." he says. "If they can't help give jobs to ex-convicts, at least they can make it easier for them to get work else- where." S calms fears TAYLOR, B.C.

ROBBED OF MANILA (API A govern- I ment cashier told police he put in cash and cheques in a bag yesterday and earned it aboard a mini-bus to deposit it in a bank.

Windows of small and large shops have been painted red, leaving clear a small, rectangu- lar space at eye level. Peering through, one sees a few samples of what are announced as being Latin-American Crafts hand- made bags, bead collars, shoes, pottery. But the goods are there for viewing, not for sale. The doors to the stores re- main open. Inside the shelves are bare, except for an occa- sional sparse selection of ap- parel. This is available under the rationing system and not for general sale. A few pedestrians stroll around and on rare occasions someone enters a store, perhaps in the hope of finding his size in one of the items to which he is en'.itled. That no more consumer goods are available is attributed to the U.S. embargo. STILL BLAME U.S. After 13 years of dictatorial rule and despite billions of dol- lars of Communist bloc aid, Fidel Castro and his propa- ganda machine still blame the U.S. for the great majority of ills.

Others express hope that as the country slowly industrial- ize.? things will get better. Whether this will Ixi so only time and Cuba's creditors will be able to determine. The hate barrage aimed at papers delight in lashing out at the Nixon administration and that of countries friendly to it. The Communist parly's official mouthpiece, G r a n m a, spells President Nixon's name with a swastika in lieu of the letter X. His administration is pictured as a rapacious conglomerate of generals and tycoons, bent on exploiting the rest of the world. An anti-U.S. cartoon is dafly the United States is virtually in-' fare in the press. comes the robot-like reply. Actually Castro is forced to export most of the country's better-quality products to amor- ize the debts he has run up with Russia and other Commun- ist countries. They have kept him afloat since he declared himself a Communist in 1961. To be sure, the Eisenhower administration cancelled Cuba's sugar quota as U.S.-Cuban rela- tions drew to their stormy split.
