REPUBLIC OF CUBA. . OUR NEIGHBOR
! (By Lorenzo Delgado)
(Student in the Brevard Institute)
(Editor's Note: The following ar
ticle was written by a native of the
Republic of Cuba, who is a student
of the Brevard Institute. It is repro
duced here just as it was written
and will be found of considerable
interest since Cuba is our next door
neighbor, though so little is known
about this country.)
The characteristics that a mission
ary possesses should be in harmony
with the country to which he is sent.
Each country has its own character
istics, customs, and traditions. It is
difficult to speak, therefore, of one
type of missionary. In consequence,
before a missionary is sent to a coun
try, the mission board should have
a thorough knowledge of the customs
and practices of that country and
also an understanding of the psychol
ogy of the people. In order to deter
mine, therefore, the type of mis
sionary who ought to be sent to Cuba,
a study of that country must be made.
ORIGIN : I am not going to under
take a detailed study of that epoch
in which the three caravels, "La San
ta Maria," "La Pinta," "La Nina, 55
sailed from the port of "Palos de
Moguer" in Andalucy, under the
great admiral Christopher Columbus,
reaching -what is today the Republic
of Cuba. What I want to make clear
is the fact that the origin of the Cu
ban people is purely Spanish and not
Indian. The Indians, because of the
proximity of other islands and be
cause of their knowledge of the sea,
which they had gained from fishing,
found it easy to migrate from Cuba
when they met with mistreatment.
The Cuban people do not have, like
others of the American Continent, In
dian blood flowing through their,
veins; the Cuban people are purely
I Spanish origin.
\ EFFECTS OF INHERITANCE:
I The Cuban people, because of the fact
that they are purely of Spanish or
iggin, have the heritage of Spain.
Just as the religious heritage is evi
dent in this country today, just so
was Cuba's religious heritage evident
in her life. When in their own coun
try, a group of Englishmen were pro
hibited from practising their own re
ligion, a part of that group came to
America on that well known vessel,
"The Mayflower." The religious seed
plfmtea by them, germinated in Amer
ica with so much strength that there
are today evident, proofs of the ideas
brought by them more than three
centuries ago. The Spaniards did not
go to Cuba because they did not have
I freedom to practice the Catholic Re
i ligion, but the Catholic Religious
| Spirit cf the first men who reached
j the island was perpetuated until re
; TITLES OF NOBILITY: The
i Spaniards brought to Cuba the fasci
I nation of nobility. By means of jour
nals the political iife of Spain was
kept alive in the colony. Many causes
moved to the ideas of liberty, and
after two wars against the Mother
Country, the first of 10 years, (1868
1878, and the second of three, (1885
1898), came independence and finally
the Republic of Cuba. When the Re
public was established, all possibili
ties for the winning of titles of nobil
I ity were disposed of.
PROFESSIONAL DEGREES: The
idea of winning a title of nobility was
substituted by the desire for and ac
quisition of academic titles. There
were two main reasons for this. First,
"The action of inheritance which we
have already seen." The Cuban, see
ing that he could not be called earl
or marquis, wanted to be called doc
tor. Second, "The Economic Factor."
In as much as there were only a few
university graduates many year? ago
in the isle, the possession of a profes
sional degree was a sure means of
acquiring a good position with eco
nomic advantages. This justified the
series of sacrifices of many families
to give to their sons a professional
degree. The popular stream toward
studies became so intense that the
government has t8kon measure to
stop it. In fact, the Cuban people,
because of the ease that they have had
in making a living (as the fertility
of the soil makes easy the obtainment
of products,) have been careless and
indolent, taking measures to check
their evils only when these were of
general character. Nevertheless, even
bearing in mind this condition of the
people, intensified in their statesmen
by the special conception that they
have of the character of their office,
the government has taken measures
to limit the number of professional
I had interviews with professors
and students of the" University, about
the excess of professional degrees in
the island, before the government
limited their number. While the pro
fessors argued that the right to study
ought to be absolutely free and that
afterwards the apt ones would elimi
nate those who were not; the stu
dents, under the program of studies
then in force, expressed that the ex
cess of professional degrees would
bring about a lowering of the reputa
tion of the degrees, and they would
rather see. the doors of the Universi

I am going to give an illustration
that, while it may be an exaggerated
statement, will show the cultural av
erage in Cuba:
I A farmer from one of the interior
'farms of the island, was asked by
.another: ? "How many sons do you
j have, Paul?"
I ? 'I have four' answered the first
? 'The oldest is a doctor; the second
is a lawyer, the third* is a dentist,
and the fourth the fourth I
could noit send ?o the University,
because there are so many years re
quired for a degree, but I made him
a school teacher."
"Well, what do you do, Paul?"
? "I am still farming and support
ing these four sons, because they can
not make their living." The fact, I
repeat, is the popular stream toward
the conquest of academic degrees, has
raised the intellectual level of the
ACTIQN OF THE TROPICS: The
effects of the tropical climate may
be observed not only in the agricul
tural aspect by the facility of the cul
tivation and by the exhuberant veg
etation, but also in ita influence upon
the characteristics of the Cuban. This
tropica! climate tends to make him
merry, careless, and indolent, bccause
he trusts in the natural resources,
which are easily obtainable; it acts
on his temperament making him pas
sionate, and upon his intellect by
quickening it. This iast effect of the
tropical climate is not stated as a
result of my own observation, but it
has been taken from sociolologists of
well known ability.
ACTION OF THE CATHOLIC
CHURCH: The Cuban had, many
years ago, a Church, "The Catholic,"
but the questionable conduct of her
ministers caused the Cuban to leave"
that church, his only one in that coun
The majority of people loathe the

Yesterday afternoon the eyes of
millions of people were turned to
ward the sky to gaze at the eclipse
of the sun. The ec'iipse was caused by
the passage of the moon between the
