Sun story of the birth of a new
enterprise, "Ile des Fleurs, S.

entity to process Haitian surplus
fruits and other food products
and market them abroad.
The new company has great
possibilities of bringing earned
income to the small farmers in

An' important line in Miss

those who disparage the Gov-

all depends upon the approach".

Betrayed in Cuba
POWER is the hallmark of
this offensive -power and dis-
cipline and deceit. The legitim-
bte discontent of yearning peop,
le is exploited. The legitimate
trappings of self-determination
are employed. But once in pow-
er, all talk of discontent is re-
pressed all self-determination
disappears- and the promise
of a revolution of hope is bet-
rayed, as in Cuba, into a reign
Those who staged 'automatic
"riots" in the streets of free na-
tdons over the effort of Cubans
to regain their freedom should
recall the long roll call of re-
fugees Who cannot now go back
to Hungary, or to North Ko-
rea, or to North Viet Nam, or
to East Germany, or to Poland,
or to any of the other lands from
which a steady stream of ref-
ugees pours forth, in eloquent
testimony to the cruel oppres-
sion now holding sway In their
We dare not fail to see the in-
sidious nature of this new and
deeper struggle. We dare not
fail to grasp the new concepts,
the new tools, the new sense of
urgency we will need to combat
it, whether in Cuba or South
Viet Nam. And we dare not fail
to realize that it is this struggle
which is taking place every day,
without arms or fanfare, in
thousands of villages and mark-
ets and classrooms all over the
.The,message of Cuba, of Laos,
of the rising din of Communist
voices in Asia and Latin Ame-
rica -these messages are all
the same. The complacent, the
self-indulgent, the soft societies
are to be swept away with the
debris of history. Only the
strong, only the industrious, only
the determined, only the cour-
ageous, "only the visionary who

our struggle, can possible sur-
No greater task faces this na-

other challenge is more deserv-

our eyes on traditional military
needs, on armies prepared to
cross borders, or missiles pois-
ed for flight
Nowl it should be clear that
this is no longer enough that
our security may be lost piece
by piece, country by country,
without the firing of a single
missile or the crossing of a
We intend to profit from this

For I am convinced that we
possess all the necessary res-
ources, and all the skill, ard all
the added strength that comes
from belief in the freedom of
man. And I am equally convin-
ced that history will record the
fact that this bitter struggle
reached its climax in the late
1950s and early 1960s.
Let me then make -clear, as
the President of the United
States, that I am determined
upon our system's survival and
success, regardless of the cost
and regardless of the peril.
