It was considered a hopeful development, a chance that the lowly citizens so long abused and neglected at last could look forward to a decent break. Like Nasser's, Castro's postrev- olution approach to his monumental problems sometimes has seemed more emotional than prac- "•">'. Indeed, even in his manner;, his gestures, his way of rolling his eyes heavenward, his eloquence and his personal charm, Castro inevitably reminds one New York Stock* <3«n Motors Ford Montgomery Ward A T t T 2641!

Survivors include her husband and four sisters, Mrs. Louis Gwaltney, Las Cruces; Mrs. A. W. pout if the slightest doubt is cast upon his pronouncements or intentions. Like Nasser, Castro came to power as a young man — very young for the job of coping with the vast complexities . inherited from the corrupt old regime. As in Nasser', there is a suggestion of political immaturity in Castro's approach. Castro even has .sounded like Nasser when he spoke loudly of neutralism in world affairs and o£ the "United States imperialists" whom he accused of profiting in his country at the expense of the population. Like Nasser, Castro even has hinted that if the United States annoys him sufficiently, he knows where to turn. Nasser was not satisfied to develop his own revolution. He diverted and halted its more hopeful programs for the sake of interfering in the affairs of other Arab countries. He seemed to picture himself the liberator of a great area, much of which did not par ticularly want to be liberated. It is to be hoped Castro will want to develop his own revolution. It has a great deal of prom- is*. H may be interrupted, perhaps set back many years if he chooses to encourage Cuban adventuring in the Caribbean and elsewhere in Latin America for the purpose of "liberating" areas which may not long for his own particular brand of liberation. The Cuban situation is vastly unlike the Egyptian in this respect: Cuba, alongside of Egypt, is a fabulously rich land. If Castro's attempt at a social revolution should go the way of Nasser's, Castro will have far less excuse than Nasser had. Ike Plays 36 Holes AUGUSTA, Ga.
