MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL EDITORIAL Thursday, April 27, 1961 THE CUBAN QUESTION There is no easy solution for President Kennedy in de- ciding what to do about the Cuban question. If this na- tion should intervene unilaterally thel will be public out- crys of Yankee imperialism. If we do not intervene the Cuban menace will in all probability grow and grow until the situation will be intolerable from the standpoint of the security of this country. There is a course of action available to the President short of actual armed intervention. When the security of this nation is at issue we cannot be unduly concerned about whether or not our course will meet with popular approval. The course we suggest is that the President convene a meeting of the Amet'ican states and let it be known that unless they support this nation in applying economic sanctions on Cuba we will have to reconsider the :: whole Latin American aid program. In addition we should advise the European and Asiatic nations that are leaning so heavily on us for foreign aid that unless they follow a similar course we shall be obliged to reappraise the aid program as it applys to them. Admittedly, this course Of action may make the insolent Castro even more dependent on his Russian and Chinese cronies. But the further he leans in that direction the greater the chance that the Cuban people will rise up and throw off the chains of - tyranny that bind them. This course will not,be popular in either Latin America or Europe and Asia. But it is necessary, and it is high time the United States flex its muscles and leave public opinion to take its own course. The world respects strength, : even though it may not like it. The time has come for - Uncle Sam to use it.

And yet how often do we 15eople can be kind. Everyone bother .... with so simple and inex- knows that. But what so few peo- penmve a thing as saying a kind ple stop to take notice of is what word to one another, There is not kindness can mean. A month ago a uay tha~ we non t meet hun- I asked Max Brown, the editor of j ureus of.people trying to do his this paper, to remove me from or her job as best he or she the staff temporarily. I felt tired, 'knows how. We are all so eager felt like I had nothing to say, and, to jump on people when they felt that it didn t matter whether stumble and fall and when they make mistakes. But do we do the I said anything or not. I didn't opposite: do we tell people when give Max that reason. I told him a number of other matters were they are doing a good job? It pressing me. Frankly, I was try. might be the grocery clerk. It ing to gradually ease out. For the might be the mail ma~.

Jen- one cared whether you wrote ]nings Randolph once told me--- something or not. I don't want to and I never knew him to be more pretend that I suddenly became sincere or more humble--that blessed with an overwhelming there was never a day that passed humility. The mood I felt was that he didn't make some mis- more of dejection and depression, take. There are a lot of us who I suppose everyone, whatever his business, gets that feeling at onetime or another, the feeling of "what's the use". Why go on sticking your chin out week after week? Not that I had become sen sitive to criticism. On the con- trary, that was one of the things that prompted me to quit. There wasn't enough criticism. If peo- ~le were agreeing with everything wrote then there was no need to write. After the first two weeks I be- gan to get inquiries as to whether I had quit. I hedged. Similiar in- quiries were put to Max. He hed- ged. Most of the inquiries had one thing in common: the persons making them didn't always agree with everything I said, but they "enjoyed reading the column." So, to the chagrin of those who may have thought they were at long last rid of a plague, 1 have bad news: I'm back. The depress- ion that has plagued me has be- could use that spirit of sincerity and humility. Before we pass jud gment on the mistakes of the next fellow we'd better run down our own list first. If we must be sadistically critical, let's start first with ourselves. I hope I will be pardoned for this very personal column this week. It's my way of expressing my thanks to the people who have! been kind to me. I hope that 1 can be worthy of that kindness, and the best way I know to show it is to ~ere and now resolve that i'm going a little more kind to others in the days ahead. Next week this column will be back to the political wars. Mn. Daisy Frith Charles Town. and Mrs. $. E.
