Wallace returned Tuesday morning from, the International Ki wanls convention to which he was a delegate from the local club. The convention was held at Miami, Florida and was attended by i some three thousand Ktwanlans and their wives Thsre were 1359 delegates representing approximately 900 clubs. The tilp to Florida was made on a special train for the Kiwanians. After the convention Dr. Wallace took a little side trip to Cuba, He tried to book passage on one of the nil-planes to make the trip, but would have had to wait about a week because of previous reservations. Many of the planes which have in the past been us ed Ior commercial purposes have bc-en Grounded as the result of the acc'deni In which Knute Rockne and scvral others were killed a short time ago. Investigation showed that the planes which are all of the same make as th" Rockne tragedy plane, are inclined to be weak in the wings, and there is some question as to whether they will be sent up again. If they are they will be used to carry freight. Dr Wallace found that the economic condition of Cuba was far from the best. Sugar and tobacco are the main products, and with prices down ;he natives have quite a struggle to live as they have little money to buy imported food with. There is a feel-i ing of unrest among th e natives whic is evidenced by the guards which ai placed around the upper schools an other public buildings including th new capital Wuilding, which cost sev eral million dollars. If it were no for the guards the students in the up per grades would tear the building down. Cuba, it seems, has more c less outbuilt itself with the new cap, tal imd the new paved road which run the length of the island. Or e of the extravagant features o the capital building is a large diamon inlaid in the center of the floor. Dr Wallace had to obtain a special per mit to gain entrance and inspect th building. The paved road was opened up in miles long, which, is the 1 February, it is approximately 80i miles long, which is the length 'of the island, and was built at a trcmen dous cost, which at present is keer-lj felt by the people of Cuba.
