The myslery well, which is guarded wilh Fort Kno.x-like se- curity, is the most interesting tesl in Ihe nation and has caused a flurry of leasing and royally transactions in a wide coastal area.

This type of exploration is way beyond anything ever at- tempted on the coast before now. Geologists point out lhal these formations tend to down- dip, or go deeper, toward the coast. H is also believed that the formations themselves are deeper along this area. The big question, which il is believed Amerada is allempling lo answer, is just how far down area, from various Wilcox for- mations, and there is produc Lion from the Smaekover in Ok- lahoma and some areas of Tex- as.

By May 20 The report about the bridge raids came as the deadline ap- proached on an announcement a year ago by Manuel Ray, leader of another exile group, that he would be fighting Ihe Fidel Cas- tro regime on Cuban soil by May 20. Ray disappeared from his job with the Puerto Bican gov- crment some days ago and the New York Times published a re- port Tuesday that he had left an undisclosed Cuba. A third exile 'group, headed by Eloy Gutierrez Menoyo, re- nowned guerrilla fighter, also was reported ready to strike. Just how Tuenday's confusion of reporls occurred was no clear. There was speculation ii might have been due to a'mix- up tn the feeble communications MRR claims to have with under- ground forces within Cuba, or to the possibility the denial was an effort lo bottle up (he story un- til a formal announcement coulc be made later from non-U.S territory.
