The Ti- tanic was divided into 16 compartments that were presumed to be watertight. Because four of these compartments could be flooded without loss of buoy- ancy, the Titanic was considered un- sinkable. - On April 20, 1923, Tito Puente, the bandleader and percussionist who helped popularize Latin dance music in America, is born in New York City. Dur- ing a career that spanned six decades, "El Rey" (The King) recorded more than 100 albums and won five Grammy Awards. - On April 16, 1947, multimillionaire and financier Bernard Baruch first coins the term "Cold War" to describe relations be- tween the United States and the Soviet Union, a war without fighting or blood- shed, but a battle nonetheless. - On April 15, 1959, Fidel Castro visits the United States. The trip got off to an inauspicious start when it became clear that President Dwight Eisenhower had no intention of meeting with Castro. Instead, Eisenhower went to the golf course to avoid any chance meeting. MOMENTS IN TIME PUZZLE PAGES By Dan Rice
