LOTTERY TICKET FROM CUBA SHOWN TO KIWANIS CLUB Before the Kiwanls club last Thursday noon Dr. R. M. Wallace reviewed a trp to Cuba which he made last spring: after attending an international Kiwanls convention at Miami. He found that the Cubans look upon the United States with great favor. American leaders of the Spanish-American war, like Pres idents McKlnley ami Roosevelt are venerated like Cuban heroes, and their life histories are taught in the public schools. Statues of Ameri cans who participated in the war have been erected in almost every Cuban city. The Cubans are naturally laziy and indifferent. The poor state of the Cuban government is largely attributed to the general indifference of the population. Graft 'Is In fact expected to predominate in government. The Cubans were taught by centuries of Spanish misrule and ex- pVtation to expect it. The Cuban president some years ago inaugurated a government lottery, and through free gifts of num- bers In the lottery political situation. he controls the Doctor Wallace exhibited one of the lottery tickets, good for one 1-100 of a number. If his number had been pulled out he would have shared winnings with 99 other holders of fractional parts of the same number. The lotteries are conducted twice a month, ahd are largely patronized by Cubans. In fact the profits from the national lottery are enough to enable the president, tw- galn unlimited power -merelBV through the distribution of the fMw- tickets to senators and members off.' the lower house.
