Young Hobby UUD A Potato Porcupine British Warn Cuban Exiles L/ONDON (AP)—Britain warned Friday she would take a serious view of any attacks on her Cuba- bound shipping by the Cuban exile organization known as Alpha 66. The Foreign Office also disclosed that the U.S. State Department has been approached—presumably to help explain last month's attack by Alpha 66 on a British vessel in a Cuban port. The British have not said so officially but privately assert that Alpha 66 operates from U.S. territory using largely U.S. equipment. In that sense London takes the view tihat the American administration could be held at least partly responsible for any illegal activities by the exile group. Alpha 66, led by Antonio Veci- ana from a Puerto Rican headquarters, announced. Thursday it was declaring war on all merchant ships carrying supplies to Fidel Castro's Oulba. Earlier this week Hhe organization claimed to have carried out a commando* raid on a Cuban port. If British merchantmen on the Cuba run had to go" through .a gauntlet of attacks by Alpha 66 raiders, there is little doubt the government would be pressed' to provide naval protection.

You can buy them at most variety stores. Some are made of wood and others are of plastic. Either kind will do. For a starter, use them to make a potato porcupine (Figure 1). Select a small potato shaped like a porcupine. Break some toothpicks in half and stick them into the potato to resemble a porcupine's quills. Press the thick end of each piece into the potato. For legs, press small twigs into' the potato. Black-headed pins may be pressed in for the animal's eyes. Next, try making a candle cactus (Figure 2).
