Advocate (Newspaper) - May 16, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 9 TK1XPHONE IU 5-1451 Exiles Hit Cuba Two New Blows Koa Protests Earlier Raid WASHINGTON (AP) A re- port of a second and third thrust against Castro Cuba's coast de- veloped here Friday against a background of Havana protests against Wednesday's blow at a Cuban sugar mill. Quoting unidentified U.S. gov eminent sources, the Washing (on Star reported two ant Castro Cuban exile organiza tlons landed forces on the north ern and southern shores of Ui island Friday morning. The Citizens Committee for Free Cuba, an exile organiza (ion based here, confirmed th landings but gave a somewha different version. Under Cover It said the infiltrations were carried out Wednesday morning rather than Friday, under cove of the diversion created by th attack on Port Pilon in Province, easternmost of the Cuban states. Havana did not confirm or comment on the reported nev, landings but a Cuban broadcas monitored in Miami indicate; building tension in the Commu nisi regime. The governmen communications network direct ed its radio operators to report for work Saturday normally an off day for them "on ac count of the present crisis." The order added, "We mus be broadcasting tomorrow with our guard up." Sugar Destroyed But while the Cuban govern ment'was silent on the reportee new landings, it carried to the United Nations its protes against the Port Pilon raic which it has conceded brotrgh the destruction of some TO.OO' bags of sugar. Cuban Foreign Minister Hau Hoa in a note to U.N. Secretary General O Thant charged tha the U.S. Central Intelligent Agency is directing attacks from bases in Florida, Puerto Rico and Central America.
