Original caption: News map spots areas of the world aligned with the Western Powers (by treaties), members of the Communist Block and those areas which are either neutral or lean one way or the other but are not actually committed by security treaties. Cuba has a question mark because it is till a member of the Rio Pact although currently indicating strong Red leanings. Cold war arithmetic shows why neutral or uncommitted nations are the center of increased concern on the part of the major powers.
