farmers may move to Mexico WASITOJGTON (UPI) - Some California farmers might move their operations to Mexico if Congress does not extend the Mexican bracero program. Rep. Charles M. league, R—Calif., warned today. Teague, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said some producers of crops such as strawberries, lettuce and tomatoes had served notice they might shift operations south of the border if domestic workers are not available. Others, he said, indicated they would change over to crops such as sugar beets and alfalfa if the program to bring Mexican workers into the country was not extended beyond December 31. Church and Labor Opposed The House recently rejected a two-year extension of the program which has come under sharp at tack by church groups and labor organizations who say it holds do «Ti the wages of domestic farm workers. Teague said land was cheaper in Mexico and "labor is a dollar a day instead of SI .25 an hour. As a result, he said, California producers were increasingly turn ing their gaze south of the border. He said there would be few restrictions on the export to this country of Mexican fruit and vegetables. The California Republican, who has introduced new legislation to extend the bracero program, said the braceros could not be replaced by domestic workers. "No one, absolutely no one who knows anything about the facU, is convinced that the bracero can be replaced by domestic labor," Teague said. Domestic Labor Skimpy He said it was possible that enough domestic labor might be found to handle crops such as grapes and tree crops. But he said there would not be enough to handle all crops. Teague said legislation pushed by Sen. Harrison Williams, D— N.J., to create a domestic bracero- type program was "well intentioned" but could not meet tlie need for farm labor. He said experience in Caiifornia had shown putting the unemployed to work on farms would not uork. 'They're not used to farm work," he said. "They don't want to do it. They don't like it." He said many quit after a few- days of work and after farmers go to the expense of transporting them to their farms. The ultimate answer to loss of bracero labor, Teague said, was increased mechanization. "This won't bring any more jobs for domestic workers," he said.

Jliss Buhai used the First and Fifth Amendments when asked it she recently visited Cuba, if she knew Communists in the National Lawyers Guild or if she presented a program of slides of a trip to Cuba last June 21 to a meeting in Whittier, as reported by the Whittier News.

Redlands Daily Facts Wed., July 3, 1962 - 7 Case of Cas+ro and CBS man Dodd calls for loyalty check on U. S. reporters of the Yucaipa parks and recreation commission, Yucaipa Valley District. Coast Electrical Association. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, vice chairman of the Senate Internal Security subcommittee, called today for a closer loyalty check of American news reporters. Dodd made the statement in conjunction with release by the subcommittee of testimony taken April 10, 1962, from Robert Taber, former Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) correspondent and a founder of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. Taber was questioned in closed session shortly after he returned from a year's stay in Cuba where he was wounded during the April, 1961, Bay of Pigs invasion attempt. He was employed at that time by the Cuban newspaper "Revolucion." "Something To Ponder" "It is something to ponder," Dodd said in commenting on the testimony, "that a man like Taber would worm his way into a top position on the CBS staff, get himself assigned as CBS correspondent in Cuba in the period preceding the Castro takeover, and then have his totally pro- Castro presentations purveyed to the American public by one of our two great television networks. "It is my earnest hope that the story of Robert Taber ... can do something to persuade our news media that their correspondents can not be selected on the sole basis of their ability as newspapermen or cameramen or commentators—that it is their duty to the American public to conduct a somewhat closer check into character and basic loyalties than was conducted in the case of Robert Taber." At the hearing, Taber denied for the second time that he personally received money from Castro officials for use in launching the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. The subcommittee has charged the committee is Cuban government's "chief public rela- NEW STEEL USE JOHNSTO\VN, Pa. (UPI) — Steel rails will ride on steel crossties in a new railway in Pakistan.

Taber also denied being a Communist, Taber was one of two CBS newsmen who smuggled television equipment into the Cuban mountains to interview Fidel Castro before he took over the island. He was not connected with CBS when he helped found the fau: play for Cuba committee. He resigned as durector of the committee in December 1960 and went to Cuba where he was employed by "Revolucion" and "EI Mundo," both Castro papers. At the Bay of Pigs invasion he wore the uniform of the Castro militia, carried a machine gun and was wounded by mortar shell. He told the committee he v.-as acting only as a correspondent. Taber left Cuba in December, 1961, flying to Prague on a Cuban passport. Later he went to Hamburg, had his U.S. passport renewed, and returned to New York whore he published a book on his Cuban experiences.
