  • Description

    JUST A FEW MONTH AGO, DOMINICAN DICTATOR RAFAEL TRUJILLO (CQ) WAS FURIOUS WITH THE U.S. ARMY FOR REFUSING TO GRADUATE HIS PLAY BOY SON FROM THE COMMAND AND STAFF SCHOOL AT FORT LEAVEWORTH. APPARENTLY, THE GENERALISSIMO FEELS MORE KINDLY TOWARD OUR NAVY. EARLY THIS WEEK, IN CIUDAD TRUJILLO HE CONSENTED TO BE GUEST OF HONOR BOARD THE U.S.S. CANBERRA (CQ), THE AMERICAN CRUISER SPECIALLY OUTFITTED AS A MISSILE VESSEL.

    TRUJILLO, WEARING DARK GLASSES, WAS GIVEN THE WORK. A CANNON SALUTE, AN HONOR GUARD....JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING.

    HE REVISED THE CANBERRA'S MARINE DETACHMENT AND WAS EVEN TREATED TO LUNCH. TRUJILLO, WAS FAVOURABLY IMPRESSED. MADE BOLD BY HIS SUCCESS. THE DOMINICAN STRONGMAN MIGHT EVEN TOY WITH THE IDEA OF SENDING RAFAEL JUNIOR TO A U.S. NAVY SCHOOL. THAT IS, IF RAFAEL CAN KEEP HIS WIND ON HIS WORK, AND RESIST THE TEMPTATIONS OF HOLLYWOOD.
