To Teach Fidel Another Lesson But Not In Law •^ANDREW MEISELS NEW YORK (AP) - A flstin. guished-lookmg man who knew File! Castro 19 a boy and taught ton Itjr ; at Havana University no* seeto a union of all Cubans to overthrow the Castro regime. . "twdi revolutionary groups cannot overthrow Castro," said Dr. Carlos ' Marquez Sterling. "Certainly,' five groups cannot do it. If 111 Cubans unite with the same leader,.,!and the same program, then the defeat of Castro will be possible—perhaps not in two or 10 THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, March 26, 1963 three months, but in six months or a year." : Marques Sterling reportedly has widespread support from within Cuba to be the leader of a unified struggle against Castro, according to some exiles in this country. He has said he would be willing to lead such a struggle—provided his countrymen want him to. "If not," he said, "I would be pleased to support any man acceptable to the Cubans. I have no political ambitions after Castro is overthrown. I seek only the freedom of my country." At 60, Marquez Sterling can look back on a life of opposition to a series of Cuban governments. In 1933, he fought in the revolution that overthrew dictator Gerardo Machado. He opposed the regime of President Fulgencio Batista— "but politically, not as a revolutionary," he adds. His opposition to Castro is just as calm and just as unswerving. "I have nothing against Fidel personally," he said. "He was a student of mine at Havana University. He was a friend of my eldest son. But I never liked his extremely radical ideas." A ruggedly handsome man with steel gray hair combed straight back, Marquez Sterling spoke in 'English with a heavy Spanish accent at an interview Monday night in his comfortable Manhattan apartment. "Unity among the revolutionaries in Cuba is difficult, since they are not always in communication," he said. "But recently a person came here from Cuba via Mexico and said the revolutionary groups had taken a secret poll and that I had received a majority of votes to lead the Cuban struggle. "If this is truly so, I told this person, then I will accept that responsibility. I would even go back to Cuba to aid in the struggle. But I will not be the leadter of just one, faction." .,,.:, If a .unified group 'can be formed said Marquez Sterling, it will try for United- States recognition and support. A member of the Cuban House of Representatives from 1936 to 1944, Marquez Sterling presided over the constitutional assembly that drew up the Cuban constitution of 1940. He describes himself as a "progressive dedicated to a democratic form of government." He ran for president in 1958 but the counting of the votes, he says kindly, "was not very well done." Shortly thereafter came the Castro revolution. Marquez Sterling took asylum in the Venezuelan Embassy and subsequently fled the country because, he said, "I knew what to expect. I know Castro very, very well." Two Are Dead In Car Crash KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP)-A car plunged off a bluff beside Kansas 32 at the west edge of Kansas City late Monday night, killing two persons and injuring the driver.

(AP)-Residents of the Kipp Rural High School District voted 59 to 58 Monday night in favor of keeping the school open for the 1963-84 term, although the district is short on money. ' Votes were cast by 120 of the 259 eligible voters. Two ballots were blank and one was voided. The three-member school board declined to say immediately whether another election will be called, and would not make any comment on the voting. The district already is $1,700 be- hind oi» its (nirrentjtS-niionth hi* get io( $32,500, and is collecting the maximum legal'school levy of fO mills per $100 valuation. | State aid can't be obtained be* cause there are only 22 pupils*^ the minimum for state help is $5.> The district has a modern brick building erected eight years ago at a cost of $186,000 after the old building burned. By closing the school, the district could send the pupils to Gypsum, eight miles south at a- net cost of about $8,00 a year, officials said. If that were done, the building could be used by the grade school, which has 100 pupils in two smaller buildings. The district has paid off 40 per, cent of a $100,000 bond issue voted in 1954 to finance the new build* ing.
