    Background: WHILE 2-THOUSAND CUBAN REFUGEES WERE RECEIVING A TUMULTUOUS WELCOME IN FLORIDA LAST WEEK...ACTIVITY OF A MORE PROSAIC SORT WAS PROCEEDING QUIETLY FAR INLAND. CITIZENS OF KANSAS CITY, MISSIOURI...IN THE CENTRE OF THE UNITED STATES...WERE PREPARING PERMANENT HOMES FOR HUNDREDS OF RE-LOCATED CUBAN FAMILIES.

    RESETTLEMENT IS A COMMUNITY-WIDE PROJECT IN KANSAS CITY. IT IS CO-ORDINATED BY A MAJOR'S COMMITTEE ON CUBAN REFUGEES. ARRIVING FAMILIES ARE PROVIDED HOMES AT MINIMUM RENT. CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS DONATE FURNISHINGS FOR THE HOUSES. NEIGHBOURS CONTRIBUTE THEIR TIME AND LABOUR TO PUT THE HOUSES IN GOOD REPAIR. THE CITY'S NATURALIZATION COUNCIL PROVIDES ENGLISH LESSONS IN PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS. JOBS ARE GUARANTEED BEFORE THE REFUGEES ARRIVE...BY THE MISSOURI STATE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE.

    SO FAR, 435 CUBANS HAVE BEEN RE-LOCATED IN KANSAS CITY...MOST OF THEM IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS. ABOUT 500 MORE ARE EXPECTED BY THE FIRST OF THE NEW YEAR.

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY HAS BEEN PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE REFUGEES AND THE RANSOMED GUERILLAS - IN A WEEKEND CEREMONY AT MIAMI. SOME 40,000 OF THEM PARADE BEFORE HIM AND WHEN PRESENTED WITH THE BATTLE FLAG OF THOSE WHO INVADED CUBA IN 1961, HE PROMISED THAT IT WOULD ON DAY BE RETURNED TO THEM IN A "FREE HAVANA".
