MUSIC INTHEIR ...INMEXICO All the children love Lolita's parties, for her father has a fine radio-brought all the way from the United States by steamer and the spacious patio is a splendid place to dance and sing. Indeed, to music-loving Mexicans our finely made receiving sets have an especial appeal. In 1940 thousands of radios were exported to Mexico, together with huge cargoes of cars, trucks, electrical apparatus, industrial machinery and textiles. Mexico, in turn, has many products that are essential to our economy-copper, lead, zinc, henequen, oil and rubber. The whole family joins in the fiesta spirit at Lolita's party, don ning colorful native costumes. For more than half a century Cuba Mail has played a prominent part in transporting much of this valuable commerce, besides carrying thousands of cruise passengers. Mexico, with its glorious mountain scenery and 16th century churches, its ancient pyra mids and colorful fiestas, has long been a "Mecca" for travelers from the North! As soon as conditions permit Cuba Mail will resume its former freight and passenger ser vices over its old established routes.
