ra* (l|i,) Uppor D&Motafi Thursday/ May 11, 1961 THE GRIM POST MORTEM „ Just what was our cbnnection with the recent ill-fated landing attempts in Cuba by a group of Cuban exiles ? The New York Times and St. louis Post-Dispatch seem to have prepared the most conv prehensive and understandable summary of jjust what pur nation did in connection with the effort, . The Times said: "We look like fools to our friends, rascals to our enemies and' incompetents to the rest." - 1 r- There were only about 1200 exiles involved in the landing efforts, although some 4,000 more were concentrated in other Caribbean areas without taking part. It was not a full scale Invasion effort as most of us thought from what we read. - '2 — About a year ago the CIA began helping to train, and finance an army of Cuban exiles with chief training camps in Guatemala and Nicaraugua. A U.S. army retired colonel was in cJiarge of training, but gave the conventional army training, not for guerrilla war. 3 _ The. CIA appears to have dealt chiefly with an anti-Castro conservative group known as FRD, snubbing a more radical group which had far stronger underground support in Cuba known as the MRP. About 20 million was appropriated for the FRD group, but the MRP obtained only about $3,000. 4 — The MRP warned iiiat en invasion attempt could not succeed unless coordinated with the underground in Cuba — nor if it aimed to restore U. S. plantations and corporations to former owners as the FRD has promised. 5 — The CIA advised President Kennedy the invasion had a good chance and that a mass uprising against Castro was to be expected. The underground forces in Cuba of the MRP were not notified of the invasion plans, however. ; 0 _ The 1,200 men who went ashore were qrmed with American guns, and some tanks (five), but the expected uprising of the Cuban people did not follow. ! "fhqt, in substance, is the .course of events. . It is unfortunate that the effort failed, and it would seem it should not have been made at all without more assurance of success. The die is cast, and we lost the advantage that a Castro uspet 'wpuld have achieved. There may come another chance, someday, and when it does, let us hope we have learned enough from the first defeat to insure succes^ot the second attempt. • • *»•*• * . * *. • i - • If you keep borrowing trouble you're always in debt.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST SCHOOL DISTRICT SOLUTION ? Our neighbors in the Whittembre public school area are faced with a problem involving a revision of their school district. Months of discussion have taken place between Whittemore and other neighboring districts, chiefly West Bend and Rodman, studying a way for school consolidation acceptable to all the various districts. It is not an easy problem to solve. The three areas concerned may work it out to mutual advantage. But if they do not, and if Whittemore feels so inclined, why not give consideration to inclusion of the Whittemore district in the Algona Community School disitrict ? We understand that several years back some though was g|ven to this solution, but Whittemore was left with the impression that if such a move was made there would be no prQ- vision at all for use of the present Whittemore public school building This building is made-to- order for a grade school, to say the leas^. It contains an excellent lunch room, a near-new gymnasium, and plenty of playground space. It could easily handle six grades. Incorporated into the Algona district, the only revision that might be necessary would be alteration of the distribution of grade students so that some of those in the rural area between Algona and Whittemore, now coming to Algona grade schools, might go to grade school in Whittemore. The teaching personnel would be of the same calibre as presently exists in the Algona system, and of course a part O t f it. It doesn't exactly seem sensibly to discard a perfectly good school building, such as the one at Whittemore, when it might logically be used. Bus distance from the school would -be no greater and might even be less than present mileage for the area between. Algona and Whittemore which might be serve'd. Consolidations in school sytems are the order of the day, in an effort to provide better educational facilities and a wider varlety^.of .sjjb- jects. But there is always a factor of cost,.too. Inclusion of Whittemore in the Aigona district would not all be a one-way street. The Whittemore school district residents vyo.ujd bene^ fit, we presume, by having access to, a broader, educational system. They, in turn, would be added to the school tax base and would ,pay their proportionate share of the bonded indebt-. edness that already exists in the' Algona district. . But by simply using the Whittempre facilities for six grades, enough easing of the Algona grade school load might be accomplished so that one of the present existing new buildings in Algona might possibly even be used solely for a junior high. This, in turn, mght relieve the enrollment load in the high school so that' present facilities would do for a long time. The reason the present high school is crowded is because everything over the sixth grade is now going to the high school. There are, we realize, many probable flaws in the discussion here. But we hope there might also be a few worthwhile thoughts. It is likely that as time goes on, school sys- tens will continue to consolidate. If Whittemore does not find a solution within the discussed triangle with Rodman and West Bend, it makes sense to us to strongly consider inclusion of Whittemore in the Algona district. We would welcome any discussion on the subject, and our editorial page columns are open to those interested, regardless of viewpoint. * * ' * SECRET WEAPON NOT USED We may have missed the boat in the propaganda field, one that with little effort would have cemented us solidly with Cuba and other Latin American countries. Hardly a major league baseball team in the U.S. is without a Cuban or Latin American in the lineup. They are heroes, and well paid, and we like them. Here we have a secret weapon for good will and inter-hemisphere understanding, but we haven't used it effectively. Castro, no — Baseball, yes 1 * * * Power steering is nothing new.
