Stack markings of the Cuba Mail Line stand for friendly, prosperous commerce that began over a century ago WITH the coming of peace, resumption of world trade as a whole involves many complications and delays. Happily, however, our normal maritime export-import relations with our Good Neighbors of Cuba and Mexico can be re-opened quickly the moment conditions permit. These countries have built up large credit balances in the United States through the sale of strategic materials. Their lands are untouchedby war. They are hungry for goods bought from the United States in peace time-farm machinery, electrical equip ment, cars, trucks, and a host of other items. Serving And they are eager to export to us quan tities of tobacco, sugar, tropical fruits, cop per, zinc, lead, wax, fibre, vegetables and other products for which sufficient shipping has not been available because of the mighty war effort. Cuba Mail has served our Cuban neigh bors for more than 100 years; our Mexican friends, for over fifty. As soon as Cuba Mail ships return from war duty to their estab lished routes, docks and warehouses will be ready with trained personnel to resume by sea or by air-the expeditious handling of passengers and freight for which Cuba Mail has so long been famous.
