(AP) President Kennedy review ed Saturday the brigade that tried to invade Cuba last year, and spoke of a future free Cuba. While making no promises o U.S. armed invasion in Cuba, thi President urged a wildly cheering Cuban crowd in the Orange Bow to prepare for the day of free dom. Kennedy, showing more emo tion than in any recant speech clenched his fist'repeatedly am pounded it on the speaker's ros trum as he addressed the men o Brigade 2506 and other exiles. The Cubans chanted "Guerra" (War) and "Libertad" (Liberty) Kennedy spoke. Flags Wffl Return After accepting the brigade' smuggled out of Cuba, Kennedy said: "I can assure you that this flag will be returned to this brigade in a free Havana.- He said he toped the .brigade and members of their families "will take every -.opportunity to educate your in the many skills and disciplines which will, be necessary when Cuba is once more free. "I can assure you that it is- the strongest wish of the people of this country, as well -as the peo- ple of this hemisphere, that Cuba shall one day 'be free again, and when it is, this brigade will de- serve to march at the head of the free Kennedy said. About members of the bri- gade were captured by Castro soldiers when the April 17, 1961, Bay of Pigs invasion collapsed. A number of them died, some were ransomed by relatives'and 60 sick and wounded were liberated ear- lier this year. Committee Faces Them The remaining were freed from Cuban prisons and flown to Miami in time for Christmas as the result of negotiations by the Cuban Families Committee and attorney James B. True enough, the lake isn't there yet. But at the rate things are going, it won't be long before the Lake of the Arbuckles has spread its wet arms over all this part -of the country. Here; near the confluence of Buckhorn, Big. Sandy and Rock creeks, a big earth-fill dam, feet long, will back up water from the three streams to impound acre feet of water for municipal, industrial and recrea- tional use. Bureau' of Reclamation and U.S. Geological Survey, crews have been in .the area for about 30 days, running''a. detailed .survey of the lake area'. Wtien the- survey is completed, a' "Definite- Plan Report" will be prepared which the Bureau will -be ready to' negotiate .with 'the recently formed Arbuckle Master Conserv- ancy Board: Members of the'board, appoint- ed about a week ago by District Judge William J. Monroe, are Glen .Sulphur, chairman; Harry Homer, Davis; Cullen'Cof- and P. M. Bri- gante, Jack Conroy' and' Ford Simmons, -all of Ardrnore.

New York Donovan. The President and his wife flew to a point several blocks from the Orange Bowl. They rode into the stadium in ..a white convertible. They stood, squinting in the sun, .with Jose Miro Cardona, Cu- ban Revolutionary Council presi- dent; Donald Barnes, State De- partment interpreter; and two leaders during playing of the Cuban national anthem and the Star Spangled Banner. Brigade's Reviewed The President then. reviewed the brigade members, some with missing arms or legs, stopping frequently to ask. a man his .name, age, duty with the brigade or how he was feehng. Capt. Thomas Cruz, 32, Negro, shook hands with Ken- nedy, then, unable to control him- self, stepped out of ranks and threw his arm around the Presi- dent Cruz'said he did it because "all of the brigade is happy to be in the United States again; I wanted to congratulate the President be- cause maybe we wiH fight in Cuba for liberty again." Mrs. Kennedy, wearing a pink dress, jewelled earrings, white doeskin gloves and white shoes, spoke a few words- in faultless Spanish. "It is -an honor for me to be to- day with of the bravest men in the world, and. to share in the joy that is felt' by their fami- lies, who for-so hoping, praying and she said. With a .visible.water supply thus in the process of becoming ac- tually visible, the city of Sulphur is about to', institute a survey of ils to determine what, if anything, it's.going to do with its share of the water. The preliminary' report of the Bureau of Reclamation showed a daily.water yield'of 16.45 million gallons for use of ..the, participat- ing cities. Ardmore would con- tract'to use 60 per cent of this, Sulphur and 'Wynnewood 15 each and Davis 10. The.Sulphur.city council is con- templating an engineering survey of its present ground .water .sup- ply. Object .of .the survey, Mayor Bob Jones says, .is "to find out exactly what we have can decide whether-to use any of the Arbuclde, water or not" 1 or not, Sulphur" will have to pay for its share of the.wa- ter, Jones-added. But, the switch from, the present 'wells -would 're- quire extra expense for .construe- tion of pipelines and treatment plant. Based on information gathered in. the ground .water the city then will decide; whether Sul- phur needs'.the', additional'water badly enough to hook onto the lake. A factor in the of course, as Cope (who is also a city points out, is the .reluctance of most industries to come into a town not have a water supply above ground where it can actually be seen. Whether or not Sulphur uses its share of the Arbuckle. water, Sul- phur in general expects to bener fit-by the mere presence of the lake right there in its backyard. Businessmen are already lay- ing plans for expansion, Cope says. And Sulphur abstracter R.A. "Dick" Jennings notes a definite increase in real estate trading.
