Communism is threat here reports Cuban By Sue Mulllni "We must be careful with tho present and with the future (in America)," Adolpho Franco, Algona Spanish instructor and Cuban refugee, warned a record attendance Kossuth Young Republican group Saturday evening . Franco, in relating his experiences with Cuban Communism, cautioned against apathy regarding the spread of Communist doctrine. "You say, 'here it is not possible.' Let me tell you, in Cuba I listened to a Hungarian priest who, for four years. spoke out to Cubans: 'Cuban! Watch out, be careful. The Com munists are here.' And I thought ;o myself, 'Poor Father, you are :*azy.> "But," Franco continued, 'tonight I am here. And my country is no longer free." In his opening remarks, the former Cuban attorney commented that he had been told previously he would be addressing a group that was "in the middle of the road" — out of political power. "And so 1 speak to you and urge you to continue to work for your party. Because then you work for your country. After the next, election, maybe the democrats will have lost. And I will say the same to them. Because now, at least, you have a road before you. And I have none." He continued, saying that all of America's great presidents— Washington, Lincoln, perhaps Kennedy — have not made America great. "It is your system, your democracy, that has made the nation great. And I am afraid when I hear that you may have only a one party system. Because now that is what my country has, and it is terrible." Stating that he spoke as a man who has lost his country, Franco told efforts of his wife, Miriam, and himself to help Castro overthrow Batista. He spoke simply of the cloak and dagger episodes that surrounded his escape to Miami, following their disenchantment with Castro. Immediately preceding Mr Franco's address, Young Republicans elected officers to*serve until December, 1965. Unanimously elected were Andrew Gotten, Algona, chairman; Mr and Mrs George Guenther, Corwith, vice-chairman; Pat Mino, Swea City, recording secretary; and Dennis Mittag, Swea City, treasurer. All former appointive officers will retain their positions, with the , exception of membership chairman. Dick Thoreson, Algona, was named to this job.

Support for feed program sign-up on Growers who participate in the 1965 feed grain program will thereby qualify for price support on their 1965 crops of corn, grain sorghum, and barley Signup for the program will continue at the ASCS county office through March 26. Support for the three crops will be made available partly through loans and purchases i and partly through price sup- 1 port payments. While rates of the loans vary by counties, rates of the price support payments are the same throughout the country. Loans and purchases for the 1965 crops will reflect national average rates of $1.05 per bushel lor corn, 80 cents per bushel for barley, and $1.65 per hundredweight for grain sorghum. Participating farmers will oe able to put all of their 1965 crop of corn, grain sorghum, and barley under the price support program. Rates for the price support payments have been set at 20 cents per bushel for corn, 16 cents per bushel for barley, and 35 cents per hundredweight tor grain sorghum. The price support payments will be made on the normal production of the acreage planted to the three grains in 1965; the payment is assured no matter what disposition is made of the crop. The larger price support payments for 1965., compared with the 1964 program, are aimed at encouraging participation by widening the margin between returns for participators and non-participators. Feed grain producers will participate in the program by reducing acreage of one or more of the three crops by at least 20 per cent of the farm's base acreage and devoting such acreage to an approved conserving use. Farmers earn a diversion payment as well as quality for duled ning. as speaker for the eve- Donna Akkerman weds .

Phillips and the late R, M. Phillips: "Faces of Mexico", a photographic art exhibit resulting from the eight-day 3,200-mile interim study project of two Grinnell students, will make its debut Saturday morning in the bulletin board area opposite the Forum desk. "The exhibit is the brain child of John Phillips and Henry Wilhelm. The two bearded students made their photographic safari in a Volkswagen and, during the course of the trip, took 600 pictures. The show will feature about 50 of these. "Their photographic studies sweep from wealth and plush night-life to bullfighting to the children of the Monterrey slums. "The two achieve their most dramatic results in their photographs of the people, especially the children. The faces of the children say more of the life of the peasant than could ever hoped to be said in wortj§. The exhibit is truly a remarkable work of art." Some of the pictures taken will be exhibited in the Algona Public Library. the price support payments and loans and purchases.
