EARLY BIRD GETS WORM
We don't know how well that provisional gov-
ernment in Cuba will function, or whether, the
new regie of Dictator Filgeniio Batista will be
an improvements oer that of fugitive President
Carlos Prio Socarres. But there's something down-
right nostalgic these days about a revolution con-
ducted without a public relations buildup, a
"voice" of this-that-or-the-other, without radar,
sonar or loran, or even a modest supply of trial-
size atomic bombs.
As we heard it, General Batista and friends
merely got up early (3:00 a. m.), went out to
Camp Columbia before breakfast was ready and
told the troops of the Havana garrison they had
a new boss, since the old government had be-
come a collection-of "ward-heelers." From there,
Batista and party (now in proper marching or-
der) went to town-specifically to the presiden-
tial palace in Havana-and announced the new
government. President Prio had gotten up even
earlier and scrammed.
On May 31 President Prio would have com-
plet'd his term of office, to which he could not
legally be re-elected. By our standards, we would
"say those Latinos are just plain impatient.

Adams Takes Crack At
Alto Adams, candidate -for gov-
ernor, said here Tuesday morning,
"I favor keeping the homestead ex-
emption on property owners as it
now stands." He also said he favors
the "'removal of tax from gasoline
used in farming and fishing."
The former jurist said the mush-
rooming of some sixty appointive
'boards, responsible only to the gov-
ernor, had taken th'e government
away from the people.
He referred to the state tag de-
partment as a "political dumping
ground" where workers are re-
warded for political support, and
said the improvement commission
is purely a political setup composed
of the governor and four "appoin-
teess" and said this group has in-
volved the state in bond indebted-
ness of millions in the past few
After taking a crack at the state
road department, Adams concluded
by saying that he is not running to
reward friends, punish enemies or
to enrich allies. He asserted that
his only desire to become governor
is to 'give the people of Florida

Imagine having all your laundry done in a few hours on wash-
day. It's easy to do when you have modern electrical appliances.
Just toss your clothes into the automatic washer where they're
washed, rinsed and spun without lifting a finger. Then, take the
clothes from the washer and toss them into the dryer. Set the
automatic timer so the clothes come out ready for ironing. Then,
while more clothes are being washed and dried, you can be iorning
the first batch quickly and easily with your ironer.
Yes, every washday will be "play-day" when you do your laun-
dry the modern way electrically, of course.,
