has the jitters We expect more tirades By BARNARD L COLLIER New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON nonCommunist trade which the United States hat been working to build around Cuba Butleris believed to have been to4 as U S offi cials have recently said publicly that the Denial important industrial and transportation supplies to Castro is the only effective weapon presently able to the United States for countering Castros at tempts to spread communism in the Western Hem isphere through propaganda and subversion The British counter argument to the U S boy cott policy is that the boycott is not reallyeffective that theU S trades with various Communistcoun tries including the Soviet Union and that Britain traditionally trades with all countries regardless of political considerations Britain made a deal with the Castro government last January to sell Cuba 450 buses and spare parts at a total cost in excess of million France fol lowed with a deal to sell trucks to Castro The United States protested both sales against the US start coming from Cuba Washingtons corps of Castroldeists besin We cant be certain exactly what if is said one State DeSI partment expert

Castro went to theuNv tne supply sergeant and take a with his complaints I suspect rest while the thing digs a hole there will be more of this kind him of thing in the near future Whatsmore says the Army the hole can be dug in the hard Sources here feel the next tarest rockiest ground get of Castro outrage will be Guantanamo Naval Base which was mentioned but almost in passing in a recent Cuban proin diameter and several inches test to the UN Buried in a 5000word note from Cuban Foreign Minister Raul Roa to UN Secretary Gen eral U Thant on Friday was the charge that US forces at the base have committed 1181 provocations and In a radio and speech Castro launched into I blistering harangue against the base accusing the Marine guards at the gate of drunken ness theft and rock throwing Castro read what said was a from Oriente Prov inces chief if claimed in part security that At 6 pm yesterday the two Marines on guard at the Yankee gate and the one working as an interpreter attacked our soldiers with rocks as they were lower ing our national flag They hurt one of our comrades on the arm The Marines crossed the boundary line and went some three meters into our territory At pm exiles brought alcoholic bev erages to the Yankee Marines who were at tie gate At pm yesterady eight Marines crossed the boundary line and came to our sentry box One ofthem urinated on bur flagpole while others tore up several plants They took our garbage rake back to occupied report was pure fabrication But the fact that Jhe Castro regime has bothered to keep such detailed incursion rec brds and goes into such detail about alleged and elaborately detailed fprovocations in will confine himself to only the situation before bodies where he can reap the utmost in propaganda These things tiuild up when ever Castro is having internal problems said one expert andrhe is having his hands full of them now The worst by far is Cubas sugarbased economy Plagued by a critical shortage of skilled sugar cane cutters and annoyed by equipment breakdowns absenteeism sab otage and general apathy among the minimum quota the regime has set North Iowa m 2 Clear Lake man killed Army has instant

closed By KENT GARDNER There will be few if any Cerro Gordo County roads closed thisyear because of a crash program carried on in 1963 County Engineer Warren Dav ison said Wednesday that 23 miles of roads were closed last year These are unimproved dirt stretches with almost no traffic Normally only a mile or two of road would be put back on the Ux rolls in a year How ever Davison said the board of supervisors felt it better to get rid of as many miles of unused road as possible DavisOn said there have been cries the state legislature that counties have too many miles of road without pur pose He felt the complaint was probably justified Last years program was geared to end criticism where it concerns Cerro Gordo County Twentyeight miles of road were tagged for closing but hearings revealed that five miles of that total were used enough to warrant keeping them open If a road does have purpose we want to keep it open But we dont feel we should spend money on roads for the conven ience of one or two individuals he said Davison said the loudest com plaints on road closings come from school districts that use those portions for bus travel The benefit to the school dis tricts was weighed but when comparing time saved for the buses against cost of road main tenance it was cheaper to close the roads A mile stretch on the Han cock County line could be closed this year although formal plans for the death of the road have not been made This is the only closing that is now a possibility for this year We have just about every thing closed that we can without causing too much hardship Looking to the future Davison said the trend toward fewer and bigger farms y might have a bearing on the number of road closings If the decrease in the number of farms brings a drop in tax able property there will either be a downgrading of mainte nance or abandonment of other roads He pointed out that this would be 20 years away if at all Davison said every mile of road closed and attached to adjoining farms puts eight acres back on the tax rolls The amount added to the taxes plus the reduction in maintenance costsv amounts to a savings of about a year per mile It would cost between and a mile to put the dirt roads in shape Maintenance on the improved roads would amount to some a year per mile If the county had improved those 23 miles oi road it would have cost a least Davi s rakes
