\ 14 the OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 21, 19S9 Castro Off To Good Start On U.S. Visit By BEN F. MEYER , WASHINGTON (AP) - It was not long ago that a lot of people around Washington regarded Fidel Castro as "just another of those Latin American revolutionaries." They thought he ought to go out and get himself a shave, and stop those executions in Cuba. Today the bearded young man has a lot of new friends here, some in surprising places, who think he is sincere and is trying his best to do a good job for Cuba. They hope he'll carry out his promise of good government in the little republic long ridden by graft and dirty politics. There are still some skeptics here, too, but they seem in the minority now. It may be because, as Castro puts it: "1 did not came (sic) for money, but for friends, and to clear things about our revolution." As he left Washington for the remainder of his two-week tour, he could look back on a good start. Even at the State Department, where there was a great deal of reserve ebout the bearded man who came to Washington without an official invitation, one observer said: "The guy makes a good showing. He handled himself well." Castro did nearly all of his talking here to newsmen. He addressed two gatherings of newsmen, gave innumerable interviews between speeches, and made one appearance on a television news panel show—Meet the Press. Fidel Castro appears to have established among a lot of people here the confidence that he is trying to do a good job. But the confidence is not unconditional. As one editor put it: "OK, Let's say we be.ieve he's sincere. Now it's up to him, as his program noves along, to see if he carries out what he says he believes in." Conscience Too Much For Robber NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Young Daniel W. Dough Jr. no longer faces the prospect of a jail term for attempted bank robbery because the real would-be robber turned out to have a heart. James Edward Anderson, 20, an ex-Navy man who is almost a double for Dough, came to the FBI Monday and admitted it was he—not Dough—who tried to rob the Bank of Virginia here last Friday. Anderson said his conscience had pestered him ever since Dough, 19, a newspaper copy boy, was arrested and charged with at tempted robbery. Police promptly exonerated Dough and held Anderson in jail in default of $2,000 bond. "I'm glad the guy had a con science," said Dough. By rare coincidence, both hnd been to the Bank of Virginia the morning of the robbery attempt. The would-be robber had handed Mrs. Eileen Thomas, n teller, a note demanding money. Mrs Thomas, thinking it was a joke laughed and the would-be robbei fled. Dough was picked up shortly afterward and identified by Mrs Thomas. Monday the teller said she waf mistaken. She and two other bank employes identified .Anderson. Workshop Patterns by Ruth Wy»th Spton BARBECUE FIRE PIT AND PAT 10 TA B L E S A BARBECUK PIT does not hnve to be unsightly when it is not in use.

(AP)-It took an order from the City Council to make him do it, hut after 28 years Lee Howard finally is going to take a vacation. And what a vacation—16 months with pay. How is he going to spend It- seeing the world, hunting, fishing? Not a chance. He'll be right here. Howard has been police chief in this seaside resort, a few miles down the coast from Los Angeles, since 1932. He has been on the job or on call 24 hours of every day, without even time off for ickness. At first it was a small force and loward figured his men had pri- rity on any off-time available, 'hen the town began to grow, and o did his duties. Because of a lack of city funds, he police chief found himself is- uing business licenses, running he life guards and overseeing the >arking lots that accommodate he summer swell of tourists. But, busy as he was, that was not what kept Chief Howard ;o close to his home all these /cars. II came out last week when the Jily Council voted the 64-year-old chief a vacation with pay, beginning May 1 and running until his retirement in the fall of 1960. "I don't think I'll be leaving town," said Chief Howard. "I've still got my boy to take care of." Howard's son Edward has been paralyzed and bedridden since he was injured in a high school fool- ball game a quarter of a century ago. That's the big reason Lee and his wife Montie are staying on in seal beach. But there's another. "Peace of mind and comfort are hard to come by," says Howard. "This town has given me both." 30 Burglaries Are Cleared GARDEN CITY, Kas.
