Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 24, 1962, Mason City, Iowa V North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for The CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL T02 newspaper that mokes all North I wa n HOME EDITION s n ei g hbo rs MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MARCH 10c Paper Consists ot Two SectionsSection One No 77 Castro is through in Cuba U S has an opportunity By ROWLAND EVANS JR New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Fidel Cas tro is through in Cuba In th words of an influential Com munist in the Cuban Fpreig Office passed on by a Lati American diplomat He ha fulfilled his historical function The mystique of the Cuba revolution has evaporated N elections not enough food n foreign exchange hemispheri isolation Cuba seems rapidl to be solidifying into a Ian tortured by the classic burde of Communist institutions Sug ar production is way down Fullscale rationing is startinj in the basic foods chickens beans eggs fish milk anc vegetables As Cuba goes down the US commitment to the rest of Latin America goes upi We are com milted up to our eyeballs There is no sign that fhe Soviet Union is going to make it easier for the Cuban people Remember in 1960 when Pre mier Khrushchev wrapped him self around Castro in a cozy bear hug in Harlem Today the Cuban people are caught in a bear trap The Russians who have been refreshingly candid about their problems at home with food and consumer goods are in no mood to send eco nomic help to Cuba in anything like the volume needed Why would they be after all For Russia putting scarce resources into Cuba would be feeding the sparrow in the jaw of the American eagle The So viet Union knows that anything the eagle wants he inate the sparrow by merely closing his jaw and that would not make a verry good return While Cuba hungers and pains the Alliance1 for Progress inches forward almost imper ceptibly Revolution and violent overthrow threaten country aft er country in Central and South America In Peru the June elections could be the prelude to a military takeover ln Haiti Guatemala Ecuador Bolivia Venezuela to name some of the warmer Latin tinderboxes po litical stability is something read about in history books In Brazil the kingpin in size and population Janio Quadros the President has staged a triumphant return and now broods like a Charlesde Gaulle at his place near Sao Paulo The October elections there are regarded in Washing ton as the most important test in the West since the Italian elections of 1948 The political economic and social obstacles to the Alliance for Progress are limitless and yet the Alliance must somehow succeed If it fails the better of the two alternatives in the experts opinion would be an Asianstyle neutralism spread ing the length and breadth of the continent If not that then fullscale Communism Either of these nightmare al ternatives would make a decent nights sleep difficult here in the United States Either would fatally unbalance the balance of power Latin America has more population than we do It is rich in raw materials Its trade potential is enormous It is next door This is what the Alliance is alii about and why President Ken nedy is spendingso much time talking about it The Alliance hasnt much to show for itself yet and wont have for months or years Only three countries Chile and Bolivia actually completed theiri development blueprints The bulk of the promised billion US aid over the next10 years will help carry out these longterm development plans Our commitment of funds cant start until the Organiza tion of American States panel of experts has reviewed each of the countrys plans The panel itself has only just been named And beyond that the US is trying to insist on basic political and economic reforms before committing its dollars The Soviet Union wont invest much in Cuba but we must in vest in the rest of Latin Amer ica Money is one thing we havt plenty of Iowa Heavy snow warning ex treme northwest Rain south east and rain or snow
