N v EXPECTING CASTRO FIASCO U.S. Waiting For Fidel To Trip Over Beard 'PEOPLE is TODAY By JACK WILSON Valley Times Today Washington Bureau - WASHINGTON In spite of the clamor for somebody to do something about Cuba, U.S. policy at present is to wait for Fidel Castro to trip over his own? beard or swallow a chicken bone. Meanwhile all U.S.1' 'citl zens are being advised by the State Department to get out of Cuba, although no pove is being made to recall civilians from the big Navy base at Guantanamo. Adm. Arleigh Burke, chief of naval operations, said recently we would fight to hold Guantanamo, and he spoke with the approval of the State Department. Here is the situation at present, as authorities who should know what theyre talking about see it: Castros government I) a s seized nearly $1 billion worth of U.S. property. in Cuba, with no reimbursement to the owners. It has been suggested that we might Instead, we will continue , to insist that the properties belong to their U.S'. owners and well make a settlement a condition of recognizing whatever Cuban government succeeds Castros. The No. One question, of course, is how long well have to wait for a chance to apply this pressure. Historically, revolutionary governments in Latin America dont last long, although youll find nobody here who will attempt to estimate how long the Castro regime can hang on. On one side, there is the fact that Castro promised his people a lot more in the way of the good life than he has been able to deliver up to now. So far he has been able to keep prices fairly 'stable, but at the same time he is demanding more work and more sacrifices from the people, and most of the authorities on In spite of the slash in U.S. sugar exports and the decline in tourist traffic, Cuba at the moment isnt hurting for foreign exchange. It still has about ' $250 million worth of gold and dollar re serves. Although it is spending an unknown but considerable amount on propaganda and on weapons, there isnt yet gny indication that the country is faced with a problem of raising enough foreign exchange to pay for imports. - A Cuban purchasing agency in Texas shut up shop and went home a few days ago because no American i concern would sell it the repair parts and chemical catalysts it needs to keep the seized U.S. oil refineries working. Yet there have been no reports of any of the refineries having shut down for lack of such materials. The final question is whether the other Latin American countries will tui such subjects expect the strongly enough against disenchantment to set in be- jCastro to hasten his downfall, fore long, although they ad-!At present the feeling here recover at least part of the value by holding back some of the money we are paying for Cuban sugar. This wont happen, unless present views are completely re-versed. The reason is that such an arrangement could be taken as an admission that we regard the properties as definitely lost. It would amount to selling them for a fraction of their value on an installment plan stretching over several years. Among other objections, some specialists in the field think this would be an invitation to other Latin American countries, Venezuela, for example,' to expropriate other U.S. properties and pay for them, out of export revenues over a long period. The U.S. is not going to extend such an invitation. mit theyve seen no rfal signs of it yet. On the other hand, the same experts admit that tbfe Cuban situation is unique because Castro has strong Communist support, and the Communists are specialists in dealing with local disaffection. Whether the system that works in Red China, in Russia, Hungary, East Germany and other Communist countries will work also in a Latin American nation is one of the unknowns in the equation. When you suggest to the experts that a dictatorship worked in Argentina for 12 years, and has worked even longer in the Dominican Republic, they reply that Peron and Trujillo concentrated on giving the peasants, and workers better living conditions than they had had before. Castro hasnt been able to do the same.- is that they feel about Castro about as the U,S. felt six months ago, when we still thought he might swing out of Russias orbit. His performance at the United Nations seems to have raised more doubts about him among the other Latin Americans, but there still isnt any unified feeling against him.' If the feeling develops, it will be harder for him to continue the pitch that all his troubles are the' fault of the Yankee imperialists. He never has admitted to his fellow Latinos that the U.S. offered Cuba loans for development projects as recently as six months ago, and that he rejected the offer. The U.S. is spreading the word now and incidentally congratulating itself that the offer wasnt accepted, since its now apparent that he would have turned to Russia in any case.

If pay-TV should become successful the exhibitors en-l vision throughout the country, small towns and large. . They are plagued by recurring dreams of their former customers sitting around pay-TV' in droves, whole families watching new films at home for the price one adult would pay at the theater box office. , The theater men are , outspoken in their criti-j cism of the present. Tele-! meter wired operation in Toronto, and the pending over-the-air experiment in Hartford, Conn. Their salvation, they feel, is seeking legislation which would outlaw any form of subscription television, and with this in mind the group recently inaugurated a campaign in its member theaters to obtain 30 million signatures on anti-pay-TV petitions. -According to .a TOA pokesman the drive met with great favor, well over are most certainly not tak- (Telemeter) characterizes ing it for granted that pay-1 as a notable success. TV is inevitable. Mitchell Wolfson, past president of the exhibitors group, two weeks ago told the annual convention of theater owners meeting in Los Angeles that pay-TV may come, but it is certainly not inevitable. True, we are engaged in a war of attrition with pay-TV. Its In his statement before the convention he observed in part I sensed the public antipathy toward pay-TV when I visited Toronto.

Cohn adds, Of course this is. not to say that in literature to the public the pay - TV people have not promised every Academy Award-winning picture and every Broadway smash hit firing ordinance in the park, . . .
