Just last week it became known publicly that massive supplies, including military, are being shipped from Russia to Cuba, which is right at Uncle Sam's back door. Shipment of materials has been accompanied with impor- tation of 3,000 to 5,000 "technicians." A number of excuses may be urged in be- half of Russia, none of them making sense except to a Communist. Thus it may be said that around some of the borders of Rus- sia are small countries which have been given some American military aid to help them pre- serve their freedom, and this is essentially what Russia is doing in the case of Cuba. This of.course ignores the fact the United States immediately after World War II adopted a policy of not opposing Russian imperialism, with the result the Communists enslaved Po- land, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and a lot of other countries and would have continued gobbling up the rest of the world if U. S• policy hadn't been changed. By the same token it ignores the fact the United States wrested Cuba from Spanish imperialism in 1898 and presented Cuba with its independence--no strings attached. The United States could have kept Cuba in its own possession, or it could have conquered it at any time. Anyone who sees a similarity between Cuba's relation- ship with the United States and, say, Turkey's relationship with Russia is completely un- realistic. It makes about as much sense as the Kremlin's argument that the United States invented the atom bomb and made and tested I Licensed Electrical Contractor SANTONI Russian, attacks an American ship on the high seas. Or a U. S. military installation on Cuba; there is one. Or something or somebody on the coast of Florida. Or suppose such an incident is arranged, somehow, by one or more anti-Castro Cubans. It is much easier to get a war started than to get it stopped Accidents during school time, at school - sponsored events after school or on Saturdays, and while going directly to or from school, are covered.

Not very important, one might think---only two lives lost--yet it resulted in Wdrld War I, which really had been in the making for many years. On the night of August 31, 1939, a band of Germane dressed in Polish army uniforms attacked a German radio station near Gleiwitz on the German-Polish border, left several corpses on the place, recited a defiant speech in Polish into the microphone and fired sev- eral shots that could be heard over the air. This was used by Adolph Hitler as an excuse of insurance. Claims will be hand- led by the parents and doctors and hospital. In the past school year, 276 accident claims involving 9 per cent of district pupils, were filed. The average claim payment was $45, although two claims exceed- led $1,000. The district feels that I , ths low-cost insurance, while optional, is a bargain to consider.

In reporting on Proposition 4 he said the bill was designed to protect agricultural people from high assessments resulting from subdivision encroachments. The cattle people have responded very generously to Proposition 4, he said.
