Research Bureau WASHINGTON Overseas bases are wasting assets but one were pretty well bound to keep is the naval base at Guantanamo Bay Cuba And for all his ranting theres good circumstantial e v i d e nee that Fidel Castro dosent want us to leave The subject came up anew in a dispatch from Miami to the effect that the United States was seeking a submarine testing base on Andros Islands in the

nonsense to compare a possible test center in the Bahamas with Guantanamo The logic of a USCuban economy of interdependence was spelled out by Rep Clar ence D Long DMd on his re cent return from a threeday tour of the naval base Both the United States and Castro seem to depend on each other Long said The United States forces use Cuban water and Cuban laborers and Castro bad ly needs the
