EDITORIAL- Free Peoples Wonder What's Ahead in Laos The dispatch of a United Nations inquiry team to Laos to look into that government's charge of aggression from neighboring Communist countries lias to be judged a minimum first step. it will serve to focus the world .spotlight on this very serious trouble area. Some Laotians feel the rebels will fall quiet while U.N. observers are on the scene. No one dares to forecast, however, whether their presence will have any lasting .effect. Offhand, one would not expect to find the U.N. consistently successful in balling brush fire invasions with small teams of observers. Admittedly, great faith is placed in the deterrent value of their "presence." Yet they do not stay forever, and the Communists may well feel free to resume their incursions once the visitors have gone. Fundamentally, the problem in Laos is that it is badly exposed to Communist maneuver, with a long North Vietnamese Red border on its eastern side, and a small en-! tryway for the Chinese on its northern fringes. On top of this, the country is poorly organized for sustained defensive effort. Its army is inadequately trained and equipped, with much of its equipment deteriorating. The civilian population in many places, appears to pay slight allegiance to the central government. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, Sept, 15, 1959 Conversely, the rugged mountain terrain offers superior advantage to rebel guerrillas, as the events of recent weeks attest. And Laos' landlocked position makes naval and air assistance — if that should ever be determined upon — difficult to bring to bear. The team of U.N. observers may achieve more than now seems likely. Their inquiry, their presence, and their eventual report to the United Nations in New York may put a heavy damper on Communist intentions in Laos. Yet one cannot help wondering how long the Reds can resist this ripe plum dangling before them, with so much reward to be gained from the plucking. Control of Laos would open many other Asian borders to Communist pressure. The unanswered question is: What is the second step'.' What do the free lands of Asia and the West do if the observers do not deter Red designs for long, and the penetration of Laos goes deeper? It's a tough one.

By FAYE HENLE You've looked at other people's homes and now you're more convinced than ever that your abode doesn't sport just a lived-in look, but instead is falling apart at the scams. This fall, you are going to modernize. Sure you have read that it is tougher to borrow, and expensive. Perhaps you have also discovered that home prices arc firm and mortgages costly, harder to come by. So you are going ahead with improvements. Here is counsel, not from builders that want to sell you a big job. but from bankers who have no great desire to finance your project because their loan business is booming. They say: Don't be satisfied with doing a little at a time. Get the entire job done at once. Get several bids from reliable contractors. Shun, above all. the hourly rate. Insist on knowing what the entire job will cost When you know what the entire job will cost, you have the following choices for home improvement loans: A conventional hank installment ' loan. The maximum amount you may borrow here usually is $2,500. 1 The repayment period can almost always be extended to three years 1 — to five years in some states. The cost will vary with the type of conventional loan you seek. i ! The choice here is between a se- j cured loan, where the bank will accept some asset like your mort- , gage or securities as collateral, or an unsecured loan where you pledge nothing and the loan rate is somewhat higher The cost of '•the loan also depends upon the : length of the repayment period. Title I loan. This granted by the Federal Housing Administration. The maximum amount you can borrow under such an arrangement is $3,500 for up to five years for loans over $(inu. The interest charge is generally 5 per cent discount per $100 a year. Discount means that the full charges for the loan arc deducted from the amount of the loan at the time that you borrow. I Tide I loans are limited to basic home improvements. They cannot ; apply to such a nicety as a switn- I ing pool, for example I If yours is an open-end mortgage I you may be able to get additional | funds on the same mortgage with! out taking mil a separate loan. ! While the interest rale on the original niorlgagc remains constant, your monlby payments may be increased sliehily I" pay olf the additional debt or the time of repayment extended beyond the original ; cxpirai ion date II your mortgage dues not have an open-end clause, but you have been meeting your monthly payments, your lending institution may extend you another loan tor improvements This in eflect is a second mortgage which is usually consolidated with ihi' lirst and results in a rewritten mortgage This usually involves a new title search and other expenses, but your interest rate could be lower than under Title I or other short - term loans. Shop (or a home improvement loan just as I've long been advising you to shop lor any other loan Check to see whether instead of the above methods of financing it might be cheaper, easier or better lor you to get a personal loan from your bank, a credit union or a small loan company.

The men who had been made responsible for roads and traffic recognized early that signs wcro their only method of communication, but they were not concerned with shapes nor colors, It wasn't until the 1920's when traffic was beginning to move long distances that they realized that signs had been erected throughout the nation in all colors, shapes, sizes and,.with all types of messages. The motorist who journeyed into the next stale found himself halfway through the neighboring state before he realized he hadn't been stopping for that state's black STOP signs—he had been used to blue. Travel from county to county, state to slate and even across several states became commonplace and traffic authorities recognized the need for a single f sign "language" so that a resident of Pennsylvania could travel as safely and conveniently through Iowa as he did at home. They were late, for the Indians had recognized a similar principle hundreds of years before, and though the various tribes spoke in different tongues, there was a universal sign language which all Indians — regardless of tribal affiliation — could understand. (Next—Sign standardization) Cuba Intervenes in U.S. Business for 'Public Good' Ry PETER EPSON NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NE.M - At least two U .S. business firms and half a dozen American-owned cattle ranches have now been "intervened" by Cuba's government under Fidel Castro, according to reports received in Washington. Just what is involved by :his "intervention" is not yet clear It is not solely an invention of the Castro regime. American-owned properties in Cuba have been intervened for inspection as far back as the HKUTs. But after short periods of government operation they were returned. Today there is no clear indication whether intervention is to be a preliminary to seizure and redistribution ings under the new agrarian re form laws. What has been involved so fails that the Cuban government moves in an "intervener" with full powers to run (he. property. He can check over the bonks, seize cash, buy and sell, meet the payroll if he can find money for it. Reasons given for the appointment of intcrventors vary. It can be labor trouble or just "for the public good." Cattle ranches have been intervened for failure to buy j feeder steers at fair prices, or for i disrupting markets. ! There have been some reports I that American-owned sugar prop: erties will not be intervened or i have their cane lands distributed tc Cuban nationals for one year, or for two or three years, but there is no official assurance of , that. j When the law of the land is 1 what the Cuban premier says it is over the radio, there isn't much stability. The admission in Washington i that U.S. Ambassador to Havana Philip W. Bonsai has not seen i Castro for three months is taken Telegraph, canceled a by Batista, distribution of land or other hold- i as a good measure of the confusion Some U.S. property owners say they are deliberately bypassing the Embassy. They operate on the theory that their best chance of staying in business is to make like Cubans and try to deal directly with the government. Among the American intervened are: Cuban Telephone Co.. a (id-mil lion-dollar subsidiary of Interna-' properties tional Telephone and The interventor has rate increase granted RKO's Cuban film agency. While no interventor has yet been formally named for Cuban Electric Co., the Castro government has ordered a 30 per cent rate reduction This 200 -million- dollar property is two-thirds owned by American and foreign power It furnishes nearly all of Cuba's electricity and also owns the Havana gas company. Among the ranch properties intervened are several under control of Czarnikow Rionda. a holding company ol Polish and British origin, now independently owned by American interests It controls .Manati. Francisco. New Tuiiuicu and Cespedes centrals, which have big cattle lands. Central Manati is half owner with King Ranch ol Texas in Becerra Cattle Co By a three- million-dollar investment during the 1'150 's. it has developed a strain of hybrid cattle for Cuban and Florida markets It controls 40.000 acres of grazing land in Cameguey Province.
