Uppdr Dei Mo!n«i Tuesday, October 2, 1962 tippet Desfllotnes CUBA NO CAUSE FOR STAMPEDE Ever since the end of WW II the United States has faced problems in all sections of the globe in efforts to help other nations, to keep them on the side of democracy, and at the same time to build up a network of alliances that might keep the Russian bear within bounds. The complete surrender, evidently, of Castro's Cuba, to the leadership of Russia, is not a pleasant contemplation. But there is considerably more to it than at first meets the eye, and not all of it is so rosy for Russia as we might at first presume. From our own experience we know that many of our "do-good" efforts in other nations have not succeeded in making us exactly the Big Brother that we had hoped to be in other people's eyes. And it is not likely that Russia will wind up as the Almighty to the Cuban people. Khruschev does not need Cuba as a military staging area against the U.S. He has said that his missiles can reach any part of the Americas from Soviet soil, just as ours can reach Russia. He does, however, probably look at Cuba mainly as a thorn in the side of the U.S., and a potential base for infiltrating South and Central America, with communistic propaganda. But can he bring off the trick? Cuba's industry and agriculture is disorganized and underproductive. Six million Cubans need food, clothing, medicines. Moscow is 8,000 miles from Havana. As Castro grows more dependent on Russia, he will become a restive puppet. The Russian agents are bound to irritate the Cuban people, and for once the United States will bear no part of the responsibility. It will be up to the Russians to be generous, to sooth the wounded feelings, to "keep everyone happy." The switch should be interesting, and we do not think that Russia is going to become a welcome bedfellow. Some of our Congressmen are now doing a lot of suggesting about Cuba and Castro — something they should have done several years ago, but didn't. Some are also a little mixed up on the Monroe Doctrine, which declares that we would oppose the efforts of any foreign power to invade or overthrow an established government in the Americas. In the case of Cuba, Russia was Ifpper £@r» ffloincs III E. Call Street—Ph.

'••:'; It is not nice to have Russia involved in running Cube 1 , 90 miles from our shores. But neither is it going to be any Sunday School picnic for the Russians — or the Cubans — and we may be thinking only wishfully, but there is a strong probability that the match may prove to be a mismating. The greatest immediate danger could be centered on the area occupied by Guantanamo naval base, which under the Platt amendment following the liberation of Cuba from Spanish rule, was loaned to the United States for as long as we might wish to use it. Any move to upset this arrangement would bring immediate military action, which Russia well knows. Despite all the blustering from cigar-smoking Castro, it appears unlikely that either he or his new ally will risk a move against the base. * * * POSTAL ARITHMETIC It was intriguing to read the latest on ,the pending increase in postal rates, which has now been approved for Senate action. As we added i'p the various increases that would result, in first, second and third class mail, the total increase would come to 'sohie- where between 550 and 700 million 'a year when all the graduated steps of increase' had been completed. On the surface this looks like a way to cut the postal deficit. Then, we find that tacked to the bill to increase postal rates, is a provision that there shall be a pay increase of $1 billion dollars a year for the 1.6 million federal postal workers. Now as we subtract the highest figure of increased income from postal rate raises (700 million) from the sum of one billion, we find that if this bill is passed it must mean .that the postoffice department will actually go into the: red 300 million dollars a year more thaVi it is now. ' There must be something about this postal arithmetic we don't understand. * * * IF THEY HAD INTEREST Grundy Register — If the Indians of Manhattan Island had taken the $24 in cash instead 'of trinkets and invested it at 6 per cent, compounded quarterly, theoretically their descendants today would be worth more than the assessed value—$10,000,000,000—of Manhatt.qn.'s kjnd and buildings. '. ' The above shows how a small amount left, at interest could have built up a huge estate. It was 450 years ago that the Indians made this sale. No one is privileged to live that long. The saving habit can be acquired for a shorter period—say 40 to 50 years. Any amount of 4 to 5 r ' interest will double a number of times in a 40 to 50 year period. * * * DOLLAR IS A DOLLAR Eldora Herald — Representatives of the Iowa State Education Association urged the platform makers of Iowa's two political parties to insert in their platforms a plea for more state air for Iowa public schools. It is difficult to understand why the top state education organization is pleading for more state aid for schools when many educational groups over the state are opposing fed eral aid for schools. A dollar from the state will be of no more help to our schools than a dollar from the federal government. * * t Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, who said 'Millions for defense, but not one cent for trib ute," was obviously a piker.
