Excerpt from The Cuba Review, Vol. 20: December, 1921
Naturally, the matter of finances is still a troublesome one, and while for a time it looked as if some aid might be expected from the government when the proposed loan issue was secured, all present indications are that this will not be done and it will be up to the sugar interests to work out their own financial salvation. The government is already badly in need of funds for various pressing needs and it is argued that if the sugar industry were helped, other worthy and needy commercial enterprises should also be given consideration.
After having been under fire ever since its inauguration, the Sugar Sales Commis sion will at last be abolished. President Zayas, after conferring with leaders of both branches of the legislative body, decided to abolish the Commission on December 15th.
Financial situation: Pending negotiations between financial interests in the United States and the government here are paramount today in Cuba and 'until a final decision is reached between the respective parties to the loan it is not expected that there will be a very great change from the feeling of apathy and depression which has prevailed for several weeks in financial and business circles.
