RYAN Here is the recipe for an indigestible Communist stew: Mix large quantities of rigid dogma with vast centralized bureaucracy, · Spice liberally with fear, adding generous portions of cautious toadyism. Garnish With red tape. Bring to a boil over slow- burning resentment. Ever since it gained power in Russia in 1917, communism in country after country has meant belt-tightening--shortages of food and consumer goods. Why is a land like the Soviet Union, abundantly endowed with rich, productive soil, chronically unable to solve its farm problems? Red China, the S o v i e t Union, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland---all Communist-rufed states, confess to dreary successions of agricultural failures. Many in their pre-Communist days were exporters of food. Why has every country touched by the icy hand of communism had trouble feeding its people? Why has world communism's latest acquisition, the GUARANTEED LOWEST PRICES ON GUARANTEED CARPET IN THE SOUTHWEST-PHONE MA 3-2505 FOR SERVICE AT HOME FURNITURE WAREHOUSE --_.-JliLl' P *~JJLL 8 I*JJI- lush, fertile island of Cuba, been forced to impose rationing in a food crisis? Fantastically, even fish -- on an island surrounded by the limitless resources of the Caribbean sea -- is in short supply for Cubans. These seem to be the answers: 1--A Communist lust for power. Once h a v i n g seized it, they require enormous investment in arms .to secure and protect it. 2--A fever for rapid industrialization, with heavy industry w h i c h builds more power receiving the lion's share of the national wealth. 3--Ruthless extermination of all vestiges of the past. 4--Regimentation of the population, and with this^the establishment of v a s t bureaucracies responsible only to the center. 5--Use of national resources f o r political purposes abroad. 6--Frequent passive resistance among farm populations. CUBA IS the latest case in point. As Communism tightens on the island's 6 million people, results show up in shortages. Quickly, the nation is drenched with Red bloc arms. All resources, effort and manpower available are geared primarily to entrenching Red power. Thus, men and women who should be producing are (a) marching in swollen militia ranks, waving guns; (b) serv- ing on more than 100,000 "defense committees" designed as a spy system to prevent icounterrevolution; or (c) populating, innumerable bureaucratic government organizations designed to keep all power in the hands of the few in the center. As it did in other states seized-by communism, agriculture in Cuba went through a : convulsion. The thriving cattle industry was destroyed, Farms . and plantations were taken over by INRA, . the Communist - controlled -national Institute for Agrarian Reform. Peasants were paid in scrip and required to trade only ,in state-run "people's stores.";, " ' · · · · With the rise of the bureaucratic police state, with all the pressures and fears it brought, individual initiative was killed. The middle class was chased out of the country, and with it too many of Cuba's skilled, educated people. S P E E C H E S OF Cuban Communist leaders have a familiar, parrot-like sound, echoing the dismal recitations heard year after year in all other Red-ruled states. These speeches concede developments like these: Production of sugar, always the mainstay of Cuba's economy, is dropping steadily. There is a severe shortage of cane cutters. "Socialist Sundays" have been proclaimed, dragooning "volunteers" into services and forbidding workers on collectivized plantations to take that day off. Machinery is falling into disrepair at many a sugar central. Distribution has gone haywire. Black beans, a staple of Cubans' diet, spoil in warehouses. Beans are rationed four ounces per person 'per week, and. with what beans finally got into distribution, bureaucrats followed orders out the window. Thus in some places, 'said, the Communist INRA··,chief, Carlos ^Rafael Rodriguez, "a degree of nega- t i ve perfectionism" w a s achieved when the f ou r ounces, was broken up into two ounces of lentils and two ounces of black beans /per person. . Distribution of meat is chaotic. There are districts which go without meat for weeks. The same applies to poultry, a favorite item of the Cuban diet. Another case: RED HUNGARY delivered refrigerator vans to Havana on an urgent basis. Rodriguez reported the chief of the "consolidated m e a t industry" didn't want them, so the "chief of the chicken section" grabbed all of them. Then, · s u d d e n l y , all bureaucrats wanted the vans. None was available. Food was spoiled. , There is trouble, too, from the "defense committee" spies, who, anxious to please the Communist bosses, have become overzealous. They are in charge of ration distribution in many areas and are so bullying the public as to create bitter resentments.

When agriculture falters under communism, it goes in- .6 a tailspin from fear of bureaucrats to assume responsibility, from infighting and :mck-passing.

The Cuban experience is by 10 means unique. t It is a repe- :ition of what has happened at one time.or another in every Communist-ruled 'nation.

Wine;D-Pima, while admitting that the recent legislative session became embroiled in politics, said yesterday Pima County received "a fairly adequate return" in special appropriations.

He listed the following capital outlay appropriations which directly benefit this county. : --A new day care center for mental patients in Tucson --$265,000. : . --For University of Arizona land acquisition, $500,000, and for construction, $3.7 million. --Repair of the state office building in Tucson, $80,000. --Arizona Pioneers' Historical Society in Tucson, $135,000 for construction. --Deaf and Blind School in Tucson, $138,000 In construction.
