FIRMS' STAKE IN CUBA — Despite rebel leader Fidel Castro's avowed intention of nationalizing foreign industries in Cuba, American investors seem optimistic regarding the security of their island properties.

S. stake in Cuba is estimated at about 774 million dollars, including 285 million in agrciultare—largely sugar—51 million in petroleum and 316 million in public utilities. !BUT WASN'T CHALLENGED Strike Brings 'Awareness'to! Armed Cuban Bomber Said Within N : Y :., R ?±, Striking Range of Missile Center Not Foreseen in Wheat Policies WASHINGTON (AP) - No drastic changes in this country's wheat export policies were foreseen here today in the wake of Canadian- American trade conferences held at Ottawa earlier this week. A major topic at these meetings was a Canadian complaint that U.S. wheat export programs — based in a large measure on government subsidies — are making it difficult for Canada to sell its grain abroad. The Canadians say they are much more dependent — from an over-all economic standpoint — on wheat exports, than is this country. 1'rnmise to Consult The conferences wound up with American government officials promising to consult every three months with Canadian officials on wheat export matters. Agriculture Department officials said they did not expect any U.S retreat from present programs. But they said it was likely that this country would go slow in , evolving new measures that might jbe considered by the Canadians to be additionally harmful to their export situation. This country is under greater pressure than perhaps ever before to sell wheat abroad because its surpluses are at a record high. One of the major complaints of the Canadians had been toward U.S. sales made under barter arrangements and acceptance of for- DAYTONA BEACH, Fin.

CHICAGO (AP)-The president of the AFL-CIO United Steel workers of America says he hopes an agreement will be reached on a new contract with the basic steel industry without causing a shutdown .of operations. David J. McDonald, commenting Wednesday on predictions of a possible shutdown in the basic steel industry next summer, said if there is a closing of mills, it will be the industry that causes it. Don't Want Shutdown "We certainly do not want to have a shutdown," McDonald told newsmen. He said the steel Industry press has predicted as inevitable a strike by the steelworkers to enforce proposals in the new contract. "Our international wage policy committee hasn't even met yet," McDonald said. "I have no idea what our proposals will be. I hope we can conclude agreements without a strike." Contracts covering more than half the union's 1,250,000 workers in the basic steel industry end 34-day shutdown. The industry has i had three major shutdowns in the i last 10 years. Denies Wage Demands McDonald was in Chicago for a! meeting of the union's 28 district! directors, hearing union appeal j cases. He said the group has not discussed the new contract nego-' tiations and denied the union has < formulated demands calling for! wage increases, a shorter work week and other benefits. He said the only discussions with basic steel industry, involving 92 companies, were in connection with the time and place of the contract talks. These matters, he added, have not been settled. i 2 Aerial Fox Hunters Are Seriously Injured STRANDQUIST, Minn.
