Castro Easing Farm Policies? • HAVANA. (AP) - Indications multiplied Saturday tha', the Castro" government is easing its socialist farm policies in the interest of smaller farmers hit by earlier measure's of the revolutionary regime. Foreign observers cited .a speech by Prime Minister Fidel Castro saying that farms poorly administered by the government would be returned to their owners if necessary. Another /sign of a softening of the line was a resolution adopted by• the- National Agrarian Reform Institute telling farmers they are free to slaughter cattle; hogs, sheep and chickens on their own property without requesting authority. They also may sell the meat, but not to middlemen. The Castro speech, delivered a month ago bul made public only last week, acknowledged difficul-' ties between the government and farmers due, among other things, to intervention. This is the administration of private property by the state, a move one step away from outright nationalization. A few days before the speech; the government had returned to private ownership at leasl Ihree farms it had been adminislering. One of these was the property of a Belgian citizen, Jean Wiltouck, run by his American son-in-law, Lawrence Lunt, of Cheyenne, Wyo. Castro said different treatment was due to small farmers from that received by large absentee landholders who were the first to be hit by the government's land reform laws.
