A-2--INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELESRAM tine tilth, can., iunmy, July u, im I..C. SCLUS: Wow Prestige Is Lost Adlai Stevenson, our Ambassador to the United Nations, tells this story, according to U. S. News: On the first day of the attempted invasion of Cuba, members of every Latin-American delegation in the U. N. came to see him and to wish the invasion well. On the second day, when things became confused, only nine representatives of Latin-American nations showed up. On the third day, when it became obvious that the invasion attempt had failed, no Latin-American put in an appearance." * ft * It seems to us this is the best example we have heard of as to how prestige is lost. It is an example of how nations--or individuals--like to be associated with a winner--and how quickly they drop a loser. It is also indicative of the way the Latiu-Americans-- and Europeans--viewed the invasion. To them it was a United States enterprise. Its failure was our failure, no matter how we try to cover it up. * * * While we were in Europe this was an issue. At that time the sordid Alabama jailing of Freedom Riders and the general segregation problem were at the heighth of publicity in the U. S. But we never had a single person ask us about our racial problem. But we were asked many times about our failure in Cuba, "Why did you not use the necessary force to make the attempt successful?" was asked us many times. We had no answer. * * * Now we are faced with the same feeling as concerns Laos. Mr. Kennedy spoke very strongly about how we would not allow Laos to be lost to the Communists. But the feeling is general that it has been lost as our delegates have negotiated for months at Geneva. It is no wonder that other countries wonder if we mean what we say about Berlin. Will Rogers used to say: "The United States has never lost a war--or won a conference." He would surely say it today in view of the Laos, nuclear testing and the meeting of Khrushchev and Kennedy. Our prestige is at a very low ebb throughout the world. It is so because we have appeased Latin-Americans by not using the necessary force to stop Castro in Cuba. We are trying to buy friends in Latin-America by our aid program. But when we failed to use force in Cuba they stopped calling on Mr. Stevenson. * * * Maybe we could afford to lose prestige if it did not endanger our safety. But it does endanger it because it encourages Communist aggressions and brings that menace ever closer to our shores. It endangers the economy by cutting off markets for our goods. It causes us to lose our own self-respect. This is why a new look is needed at our foreign aid program and our general foreign policy. : . 11 would^ seem more realistic that we refuse aid ' to any nation that encourages the Communists--and that we shut off all shipments to them, or purchases from them. A "neutral" .country in this cold war is not deserving of our foreign aid. If we must pay them to remain neutral, we will inevitably lose. Our aid should go only to those nations that are definitely our friends. Unless the President and Congress take a '. stronger position--and the people support them-what is left of our world prestige will be completely destroyed--and our danger of survival as a free nation will be increased.--L.A.C.

UP) -- A Negro, strapped inside n eight-foot, rubber-coated teel ball, successfully rode ver the 161-foot Horseshoe Falls Saturday and said he did it "for love" and to "integrate" the giant cataract. Nathan Boya, 30, of New fork became the fifth person n history to negotiate the umbling drop and escape un- larmed. "I did it to integrate the alls," Niagara Park's commission police quoted Boya. "I'm a Negro and proud of it," he said. The ball, with a two-foot dent in it, was towed to the Canadian side of the lower Niagara R i v e r . "I'm happy I did it. It's something I've always wanted to do," Boya told investiga tors when he was taken to ; hospital for a physical check up. He was reported in goo( condition, with only a few scratches on his arms. The ball, dented into pear- shape, was equipped with a s n o r k e l breathing device Boya had steeled himself with a safety belt for the ride. Boya said the idea stemmed ;rom a r o m a n c e with a French girl while he wa: stationed wilh the Army in France, in 1947. « 4 * * HE SAID they had talked of marriage and a honeymoon at the famous tourist center "During our talks, the sub ject of daredevils had comi up. I told her that men in thi country do such things ti prove their love -- like the knights of old." He said the had agreed that he woul thus prove his love. "So what I said in jest ha become reality," he told in vestigators. ;n,,r?r.asr"Mo^'fy h ,'SJ??
