Legislators Return Home Seeking Votes ; By JAMES C, ANDERSON / United Press International SACRAMENTO (UPI) - Most members of the' legislature turned to campaigning today following the windup of the 1962 session. Mindful of the election year, leaders of both parties claimed college construction, recreation, victory for their side in the session which dragged on two weeks past the scheduled adjournment. Although the final act of the session Friday was the adoption of a proposal to raise legislators' pay, the lawmakers took positive action on four other important bills during sion. the two-month ses- They passed a budget totaling almost $2.9 billion, very close the amount originally requested by Gov. Edmund G. Brown, himself a r candidate for re-election his year. They endorsed bond issues totaling $970 million, for school and 1cm by voting to permit las Angeles county to eliminate draw poker parlors in Gardena. As for the pay raise, the lawmakers who now get $500 a month voted to put on the Nov. 6 gen- oral election ballot two proposr tions, one to raise the pay to $10,000 a year, the other to boost.it to $11,250. . The views of party leaders on the accomplishments of the session went like this; Gov. Brown: "1 congratulate the legislature on a job well done. We have another balanced budget that will meet the needs of this es finally settled a perennial prob-growing state and we have most " ie Cal-Vet home program and low-rent housing for the aged, and they decided all the bond proposal* would be submitted to the voters in the 'June 5 primary. The Senate, despite Assembly approval, vetoed any proposal to increase the size of the Senate to reflect the growth in metropolitan, areas. And, finally, both hous of the important legislation re quested in the special session," Richard M. Nixon, candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination: "California now has a budget for next year, belter than the governor's original pro posal, but not nearly good enough. Thanks to a solid Republican caucus in the Assembly which refused either to be railroaded or blackmailed, some of the padding has been shaken out." Sen Hugh M. Burns, president pro tern of the Senate: ''We passed a very reasonable and logical budget." Assemblyman John A. Buster- HUMBOLDT STANDARD Saturday, April 14, 1962, P. 13 ud, GOP caucus chairman in the Assembly:."The greatest accomplishment was (lie work of the Republican caucus in pointing up the vast size of the state budget and the need for the strictest kind of'economies in future budgets." As for campaigning, all 80 members of the Assembly are up for re-election but only 49 of them filed. The others cither are retiring or seeking some other office. In 1 the Senate, 20 of the 40 seats are at stake this year in a house dominated by Â· Democrats, 29-11. Five whose terms are expiring are quitting while the rest are running for re-election. Year After Invasion Cuba Strong Militarily, Economy Weak ..The author of the following dispatch assessing developments In Cuba since the unsuccessful invasion of a year ago is a former Havana bureau managcr- of United -Press International who has an intimate knowledge of the island an:l Its people. . . . By FRANCIS L. MCCARTHY UPI Latin American News Ediloi A year ago next Tuesday an estimated 1,500 Cuban patriots stormed ashore on Cuba's Southern coast' 100 miles from Havana in a-i unsuccessful attempt to topple Fidel Castro. They were quickly overwhelmed by superior strength--and Communist arms and armor. Their odyssey lasted 72 hours. Today, the l,17i) survivors of tlici Bay of Pigs invasion are pawns n human barter talks at Havana where Castro wants $62 million in cash for their freedom, and their families in exile have raised an estimated $28 million toward that, end. ' ! Before t h e y succumbed to greater forces, and shortages ol ammunition and water, invasion troops inflicted an estimated 1,000 casualties on the enemy. Thcii own casualties were estimated al about one-third that number. What has happened in Cuba since that time? How are the anti Castro forces faring? How mud stronger or weaker is Castro? Resistance 1-ighl Now The defeat of the invasion at tempt virtually killed what up to last April 17 was a resistance movement uf rapidly growing mo- The Natives Are Wrestlers EARTHQUAKE McGOON AH WAKJTA SEE MOW AH LOOKS IN MAH RASSLIN'CLOTHES " AH.'.' - TH AR'S TH' MIRROR OFFERS IOO ANVOME, MAN OR BE AST.

Even today, a year later, the .inderground resistance to totali- .arianism within Cuba remains almost demoralized. The mountain ;uerrillas, once numbered in the. nany hun'.lrcds. now are counted y the score. Their activities are veak anil depressed. Castro and his Communist partners have tightened their political ^rip on the island by formation if a Soviet-style politburo with 'eteran Moscow-trained Cuban Communist leaders guiding the nation's destinies. Only in the economic sphere are the Castro forces perhaps eakcr today than a year ago. For U.S. trade embargoes have p ut off Castro's western sources if supply and credit. Castro's Communist allies, half- ray across the world, so far have een unable to furnish him the Â·' vherewithal to stave off the eco- lomic squeeze which has pushed lis regime to the verge of bank- uptcy. Recognition By Only Five Anti-Castro sentiment abroad as grown correspondingly. A ear ago H of his 1!) Latin Arner- , can neighbors recognized him diplomatically. Today, only five o--Chile. Brazil, Uruguay, Bol:v- and Mexico. Since the aborted invasion attempt, the Castro regime has been ostracized formally from 2 American family of nations. However, Castro has not been idle in the past year. In 12' months he has built up an army ' of civilians and regulars 300,000 strong, 10 times the size of any previous Cuban military force and second in size in the Western Hemisphere to only the U.S. armed forces. . Â· In 12 months he has acquired an estimated $100 million of Iron , Curtain country arms and munitions, including a jet fighter force, heavy tanks, long-range field artillery pieces and short- range rocket launching pads. Castro eliminated the last organized opposition within Cuba to :iis regime by deporting more lhan 300 Ca'holic priests. If the anti-Castro forces in and out of Cuba have any intentions of taking another crack at top- sling the island's "Socialist" boss in the immediate or near future, their intentions and plans are .. well disguised. Rumors are rife of constant, military training by Cuban exiles, . --and they are leaving Cuba a t . a 2,000-a-week clip--in the C a r i b - . . jean area and elsewhere. Many Â· lave joined the U.S. Army whose. Â· Â·anks have been opened for their .'nlistment. , Only time, however, can supply . he answer.
