Political events in Cuba, tragic in great part, have
entered lately a phase delicate in extreme, which is to be
hoped will result in a patriotic and democratic solution
for that noble Antilian people, with the complete recovery
of their rights as soon as possible, and within a climate of
serenity and good judgment, as circumstances permit.
In the face of the existing serious crisis, which not
even the Government tries to deny any more, a crisis
which determined the dramatic call made by the Venerable
Cuban Episcopate, in the sense of suggesting formation
of a National Unity Government which may rescue Cuba
from chaos; in the face of that situation, we repeat, it is
indispensable that patriotism and practical wisdom that
are a duty both for the Government and for the opposition,
inspire the acts and purposes of the work for restoration
of democracy in the long-suffering Fatherland of Marti.
After all that has happened; after so much violence
and bloodshed, both in the battlefields and the streets of
the capital, as well as almost all Cuban cities, rehabilita
tion of the country is no easy task. However, if the sense
of patriotism prevails; if each and everyone put aside tran
sitory interests for the sake of restoring the ideals of the
Republic; if the noble spirit and thought elightened by
the Apostle who died in Dos Rios inspire and encourage
the national movement which must be produced to save
Cuban democracy, to solve the depressing crisis of the
moment, that political rehabilitation would not be so dif
The history of the Cuban people and their ardent desire
for living in freedom and for freedom, are evidence of
their sense of responsibility; and it is to be hoped that this
sense will not be lacking even for a moment, now that
the attitude of the people, interpreted by the Bishops of
the Nation, is determining events which justify the hope
of prompt rectifications in the political life of the Republic.
It is to be hoped that the Government, in the part
eorresponding to it, conscious of its historic responsibilities,
will make easier the democratic reorganization of Cuba, so
that sacrifices of youth will stop and hate will not continue
growing, for the wellbeing of all the Cuban people, which
includes, after all, both those in the Government and those

V. S. Cuban Sugar Council Asks
For Trade Agreement Extension
United States Cuban Sugar Coun
cil has urged Congress to extend
the President’s tariff regulating
powers for five years as a means
of expanding U.S. Cuban trade.
The Council also asked Congress
to strike out an amendment which
would make it possible for U.S.
import duties to be raised 50 per
cent over 1930 Tariff Act rates.
The amendment was proposed
by the Administration when it
asked for a five year extension of
the Reciprocal Trade Agrements
In a statement filed with the
house ways and means committee,
the Council said “Cuba is currently
engaged in revising its tariff laws
and will shortly be negotating with
the United States concerning pro
posed changees applicable to U. S.
products. <
It is important that the United
States remain in a position to ne
gotiate effectively, as provided tor
in the reciprocal Trade Agree
ments Act, so as to facilitate fur
ther increases in trade between
the two countries,’’ the Council
The Council is composed of Com
panies which own or operate su
gar properties in Cuba. The stock
holders are predominantly U.S. ci
tizens, a Council spokesman said.
The spokesman said Council com
panies account for approximately
36 per cent of the total Cuban
sugar output.
The Ways and Means Commit
tee has neen holding a series of
hearings on the Administration
backed bill for extending the

Nershey Cuban Interests Sold

NEW YORK (UP)- Cuban At

sold its Hershey properties to Chi

The Hershey properties consist
of six subsidiary companies. The
sale price included $5 million in
cash and $19,500,000 in shortterm
collateral trust notes. Liquidation
plans were approved by stockhold
ers earlier this week.
Cuban Atlantic Chairman John
L. Loeb said that in the next year

Government announced that auto
mobiles made prior to 1953 will
be barred from entering Mexico
across the United States border.
The Department of Economy
said that henceforth the Mexieo-
U.S. border will be closed to cars
of 1952 or older models.
The announcement said only Me
xicans living in border towns will
be permitted to drive vintage
autos into Mexico, and eveip then
in limited numbers.
The move is part of a campaign
to stop the sale of second hand
cars in Mexico, on which no im
port duties are paid.
A special Automobile Registry
Bureau was set up to register all
motor vehicles made after 1952.
The border closure is an attempt
to stop the illegal sale of can
which will not be registered.
United States Commerce Depart
ment said that the Cuban sugar
grinding season started in January
a month earlier than usual, with a
lower price outlook for sugar and
molasses in 1958, and prospects
for continued sales to Russia.
Seven sugar mills previously
owned by United States interests
were sold to Cuban interests dur
ing january, reducing the num
ber of American-operated mills
from 40 to 33. The remaining Unit
ed States-owned mills produced
about 39 per cent of the 1957 Cub
an sugar crop.
The Commerce Department’s
Foreign Commerce Weekly said
that the Russian Government pur
chased 100,000 Spanish long tons
of Cuban sugar for February-April
delivery at 3.65 cents per pound,
freight on board Cuba.
“Rumors were strong toward the
end of January that Russia was
negotiating the purchase of an ad
ditional 200,000 tons of Cuban su
gar,” the weekly stated.
The Cuban Government has is
sued a decree limiting the 1958
sugar crop to 5,500,000 Spanish
long tons.

The Non-Intervention Principle
And The Encouragement of
Because it is of special
current interest, we repro
duce our commentary of ap
proximately eight months
ago, which appeared in our
edition of June 30, 1957.
When there is a desire to
forestall any possible stimula
tion of continental democracy,
or when there is no wish to as
sume the ideological and the
moral responsibilities that such
encouragement of democracy im
plies, in order to avoid problems
with certain governments, the
argument is invoked that the
validity of the Non-Intervention
Principle does not leave any
door open that could lead to an
attitude on the part of the dem
ocratic governments of the Hem
isphere, and especially on the
part of the United States, in the
sense of making democracy in
America move toward progress.
The reason is well known why
certain governments maintain
this thesis, applying an errone
ous interpretation to it, because
under such interpretation it fa
vors them immensely, inasmuch
as it permits them to discharge
the Public Administration in an
arbitrary manner while at the
same time they speak of dem
ocracy in international confer
ences, they sign doctrinal docu
ments eloquently drafted and,
above all, they enjoy the ap
proving observation of the other
governments of America, even
if the glances of the peoples
of the continent are not of ap
proval but rather of recrimina
The only explanation possible
to this leniency on the part of
the democratic governments that
blindly take refuge under the
Non-Intervention Principle and
watch with unfaithful indiffer
ence the crises faced by dem
ocracy in some of the countries
of America, is that it is far
easier for them to act in such
way rather than engage in a
coordinated endeavor for the
defense of sister nations and for
the defense, consequently, of the
democratic ideals.
Os course, this argument is
not a justification. The demo
cratic governments and coun
tries have the moral obligation
to stimulate the implementation
of democracy in America, not
only for the benefit of those coun
tries lacking political freedom,
but also as a measure of self
defense, because the machinery
of the whole Inter-American
System suffers from such irreg
ularities and there is the risk
that the malady may develop in
other latitudes of the Hemi
sphere. It is just the case that
no one can remain indifferent
when the neighbor’s premises
burn down.
Regarding the consecrated
Non-Intervention Principle, it is
indispensable to establish the
basic difference existing between
unilateral intervention, resulting
from the whims of a certain
government or of a certain coun
try, and the collective action of
several governments, when that
action is based on a series of
international rules, of ideological
principles and. particularly, of
agreements solemnly subscribed
by the Governments of America
on hehalf of all the peoples of
the Continent. It is a collective
action previously agreed upon,
that can well be carried through
wisely, without the use of physi
cal force.
The statesmen and the diplo
matic representatives of the
United States and Latin Ameri
ca genuinely desirous of achiev
ing a sound and well-intentioned
collective action for the defense
of the political rights of the
peoples of Latin America, could
reach such objective with
out violating the essence of what
is historically known in Amer-
diplomats at an informal luncheon
■ here.
One of the diplomats told the
U.P. after the dinner that the Lat
’ in Americans “heard with great
pleasure” Rubottom’s statement.
The luncheon was the second
such meeting of OAS ambassadors,
who have decided to periodically
hold informal meetings to ex
change viewpoints on mutual pro
blems. At the end of the meeting
j it was decided that Dr. Jose A
; Mora, OAS Secretary General,
should be the guest of honor for
the next one.
Rubottom seemed to be satis
fied with the increasing interest
Congress is taking in Latin Ameri
can affairs. He said, however, that
the Government expects strong op
position for legislative approval of
foreign aid, because of the eco
nomy tendency in the country now.
He explained some measures the
Government is taking to end the
economic crisis.
He asked the Latin American
diplomats to try to understand the
reasons some U.S. legislators have
for requesting increases on im
port duties on some articles, me
tals in particular, but insisted that
the State Department continues
maintaining a liberal attitude on
foreign economic policies.
litical scientist Friday accused
Vice President Richard Nixon of a
“shocking shallowness” in his un
derstanding of Latin American re
lations with this country.
Dr. Philip B. Taylor of Tulane
University said that articles writ
ten by Nixon following a 1955 tour
of Central American and Carib
bean areas contained “false and
ridiculous” statements.
Addressing the annual South
eastern Conference on Latin Ame
rican Studies here, Dr. Taylor drew
a roar of laughter from fellow de
legates when he quoted Nixon as
saying the U.S. and Panama “have
a tradition of friendly and peace
ful cooperation (and) for over 50
years have satisfactorily resolved
mutual problems.”
Whereas, Taylor said, this coun
try has “very little in common
with Latin American countries his
torically, economically or political
ly and “history is spotted with dif
ficult situations which have not
been solved in a friendly manner.”
He said “where the U.S. and Pa
anama have gotten along is in
times when we controlled the do
mestic-political situation of Pana
ma”. He said the relationship
could be likened to that of Soviet
Russia and Czechoslovakia.
He said none of Nixon’s articles
“are indicative of any understand
ing on the vice president’s part of
the true situation and they show a
shocking shallowness on his part
of U.S.-Panamanian relations.”
He called Nixon’s statements
“bland and meaningless genera
ica as the Non-Intervention
When it was decided, reason
ably enough, to combat Com
munism in Guatemala, the much
handled Non-Intervention Prin
ciple was not erected as a phan
tom, to oppose a firm and sus
tained attitude of all the Gov
ernments of America that discus
sed the internal problems of
Guatemala in notes exchanged
between Chancelleries and in
public declarations. As it is
recalled, the Meeting of the Min
isters of Foreign Affairs was
not held as a result of the quick
downfall of the pro-Communist
regime of Guatemala.
The conscience of America
stood up firmly against the poli
cy of intervention followed by
the United States in the initial
decades of thig century, and the
concept on which that attitude
found support is still valid, but,
of course, only in those cases
where the circumstances are
similar to the ones that at that
time caused such popular reac
tion and indignation.
Let not a historical fact, the
sentiment of nations, a serious
juridical rule, as is everything
related to the Non-Intervention
Principle, be twisted around to
produce a negative instrument
that may slow down the demo
cratic progress of America.
Scores Killed
in Worst Rail
Disaster in
Brazil History
(UP). —An engineer who failed to
heed a warning smashed his train
into three other stalled trains at
a suburban station north of Rio
de Janeiro last night causing one
of the worst fsrtl disasters in Bra
zilian history, police said today.
Rescue worker had recovered 36
bodies up to this morning and
four more persons died in hospi
tals, bringing the death toll to 40.
Some newspapers said the death
toll might go as high as 80.
Authorities at first believed only
three trains were involved. But
today they said three electric
trains were stalled on the tracks
by a rain and hail storm near
Pacencia station and a fourth bar
reled into them.
They said a station master at
Campo Grande, the station next to
Paciencia, warned the engineer of
the fourth train to slow down be
cause of the weather but the en
gineer apparently ignored it.
