The interview took, place- in the reception hail of the Casa Presidential. The President, a powerfully-built military man whose dark features are set off by a white j mustache, was emphatic in his ' statement of his country's policy. Tne army of Honduras consists of 3,000 well-trained regulars, plus an accive enrollment of 80,000 from which the militia is called. In addition there are 40,000 reserves and another 30,000 in the National Liiutru. Gen. uarias Andino is cne head of the army. The republic in addition maintains two coast guard cutters on its Atlantic side, and a privately- owned shipyard at Oak Ridge in the Department of Bay Islands, also on the Atlantic. Rapid transport for civil and -military purposes is available across Honduras from Atlantic to Pacific, and from north to south. The TACA and Pan-American Airways separate aerial systems maintain daily service, with adequate airports throughout the republic, which also has an excellent network of roads built under the Carias Andino administration. There also i.s a military school of aviation, with military and com- ] mercial aircraft manned by native ' pilots under American supervision. ' Cap:. Harold Wnite, a Californian, is director. Scientific Farming- rushed The road system is a tangible result of one of the President's two principal interests—highway building and agriculture.

President Caras Andino lives at, the Casa Presidencial when not on his farms, with his wife and two American-educated daughters. Mar- . ta and Elena Carias Castillo. "Honduras hopes that war will not come to the Americas." he said. "and has faith in the .statesmanship of the United States to prevent it if it can be prevented. "However, if the challenge is un- i avoidable, Honduras, its adminis- j i;ration, its army and its psople will stand shoulder to shoulder with its great northern neighbor, and Honduras' cooperation will not be in- eilective." ™i^ff^>-f Dramatically revived by emergency firemen after suffering a choking spell when only 7 Gcraldine Kausergrfs a warm welcome to world from sister Carol Sue! 20 months Mr Kauset is pictured with daughters in Columbus, O. hours old HOLD EVERYTHING By Clyde Lewis 'Let's .iry it oul on the clucks!"
