Alvernon EA 7-5933 "Don'f risk if--we'll f i x it" ...... With This Ad , king among bolo wielders, and a "hero of creative work." In national competitions under the workers' "emulation" program, he leaves his closest rivals literally ill with fatigue. He slashes the cane for socialism. He is said to have once cut 950 arrobas (23,750 pounds) of sugar cane every day for 66 days. But between the lines of Havana government accounts of Reynaldo's nearly superhuman exploits are clear glimpses of the real trouble Cuba is still having with sugar production, the base of its whole economy. This week the Cuban people watched on television a cane cutting competition at Hector Molina sugar central. Carlos Rafael Rodriguez, head of the INRA, Cuba's department of agriculture, appearing on the program, said Rey- nnldo was greater than even t h e Cuban b a s e b a l l team which beat Brazil. Then, in that oblique way Communist functionaries often have of being very candid in official speeches, Rafael Rodriguez said, "Why do we have so many problems in agriculture? Because we do not have our labor force well organized. Because in addition . . . there is poor cultivation of cane." U.S. officials have estimated that this year's Cuba sugar crop will be only around 4 million metric tons. It was 4.8 million last year and 6.8 million the year before. Rafael Rodriguez quoted one of his engineers as saying that if the fields selected for the competition were good ones "we can imagine what the rest of the cane fields which have been cultivated even more poorly must be like." Reynaldo, of course, won the competition. Rafael Rodriguez said the runnerup, Bienvenido Cartella, lost an hour and a half due to illness. "We saw him working in such pain that he almost could not work," he said. "We forced him to quit ten minutes before the end of the competition."

Bacon Tells Rotary Of D-M Expansion Plans By GENE BROOKS Almost 300 Tucson Rotarians and guests were briefed on expansion plans at Davis- Monthan Air Force Base yesterday by Col. William C. B a c o n , commander of the 12th Strategic Aerospace Division at D-M. "It's possible that there may not be quite as much outward glamor in the Air Force now as in the old days, but there's a lot more hard work for our men to do now, and certainly a lot of increased skills and responsibility," Bacon said. Pointing up his observation, Bacon reviewed the variety of skills required as the base expands to become one of the most diversified Strategic Air Command installations in the nation. Bacon said that the SAC base will "for a long time" have B47 b o m b e r s in its 303rd Bombardment W i n g , manned by 3,000 officers and airmen. In addition, as part of SAC's program to increase its joint bomber-missile defense capability, the 2,000 officers and men of the 390th Stra- OPEN TILL 9 P.M.

Bacon reminded the Rotarians that SAC is not the only major Air Force unit at Davis - Monthan: He briefly discussed functions of the 270th Aircraft Storage and Disposition Group, an Air Logistics Command unit, and the 15th Fighter Squadron, part of the Air Defense Command. Advance personnel of the 4080th Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron, the AF's U2 unit, already are supervising final construction of U2 facilities at the b a s e . The 4080th's planes and 1,100 personnel are expected to be operating from D-M by July I , Bacon said, when the unit c o m p l e t e s its move from Laughlin AFB, Texas. The colonel also pointed up the administrative impor- GARDENor YARD PROBLEMS? LET US HELP YOU SOLVE THEM Landscape Maintenance Modern power equipment and personal supervision.

Harold Larkin, who is also the base commander. By July of this year, D-M's annual combined military and civilian payroll will be near $35,950,000. Edgar Goyette, speaking for the Tucson Rotary Club, praised Bacon for "exceptionally fine cooperation with the community." He lauded him for his active participation in the Chamber of Commerce, and Red Cross, plus his support of the United Community Campaign and other local functions and services. The noon meeting was held at the D-M officers club. 2 Boys Killed Man "For Joke PHOENIX-- (m-- A mysterious fire which resulted in fatal burns for a 46-year-old laborer seven months ago has been traced to a 12-year-old Phoenix boy and his 10-year- old companion. Police said the 12-year-old gave a statement yesterday admitting that he and a companion set fire to the clothing of John A. Nipp last October as a joke. The boy was quoted as saying they found Nipp lying in the drive of an abandoned service station and tossed a flaming rolled up newspaper between the man's legs. A passerby put out the flames, but Nipp suffered burns over 70 per cent of his body and died 11 days later. Surviving were his wife, a son and two daughters. epper Feather-light, so comfortable, you'll want several pairs of these smart, trim and colorful work* end-play KEDS.
