Advocate (Newspaper) - May 23, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 16 TELEPBOMl HI Mill VICTORIA, TEXAS, SATURDAY, MAY 23, 1964 14 Cents Soviet Sub Base in Cuba Reported Hit by Exiles MEXICO CITY to Vazquez, Mexican delegate of the National Syndicate of Cuban Journalists in Exile, asserted Friday (hat a Soviet nuclear submarine base in Cuba was at- tacked by anti-Castro guerrillas Wednesday. Asked in Havana for comment on this and other exile reports of raids on Cuba, a spokesman for Castro's Foreign Ministry said: "We cannot confirm or deny anything yet. Perhaps we may have something fo say There was no confirmation of Vazquez' claim from any source and he declined to give the source of his information. Reports telephoned through censorship from Havana said there were rumors in well-in- formed circles of the Cuban cap- ital that guerrilla activity in Plnar del Rio Province had in- creased. Diplomats who have visited the area in the past few days report great military activity there. Cuba was still under the mili- tary alert imposed the day Vazquez claims the raid was made. Vazquez said the raiders killed an estimated five Rus- sians before retreating. Vazquez did not say whether any guerrillas had been killed or captured in the raid which he said took place near Bahia Honda, He said superior Soviet force and firepower forced the guerrillas to retreat into the Si- erra de Los Organos after an hour-long skirmish. This is the Pinar del Rio re- gion where Havana reports said Friday, nn anti-Castro armed band had been captured. It is 72 miles west of Havana. In Washington, there was no da although there Is a Cuban naval base there. In Caracas, Venezuela, a spokesman for exllo leader Manuel Ray said the Havana reports of Iho capture were "a maneuver of the Castro govern- ment to discourage our move- ment." He said Castro was apparent- ly trying to provoke exile groups into releasing details of guerrilla activities in Cuba, but he would not do so. In Miami, another exile lead- er. Carlos Bandin, said the in- filtrators that Havana sources reported captured "might be some of our men, but we don't know." Vazquez, now head of a large Mexico City radio station, said the alleged Soviet sub base is so secret that not even Castro's City report. But U.S. sources said they have nothing to con- firm the reported attack and they added that they have no evidence of a Soviet submarine base of any type at Bahia Hon- Rusk Warns Asia War May Grow Speech Aimed Ai Red Bloc official comment on the Mexico soldiers are permitted inside it.

This guarantee for Victoria's immediate water oul- ok was made Friday by okesmcn for Iho Guadalupe- anco River Authority at a ell-attcmied luncheon spoil red by the Victoria Chamber Commerce New Industry >mmittec. A cross-section of e area's financial, Industrial nd political community was hand. Speaking for the GDHA were rank G. Guiltard of Vicloria, mil-man of the board of di- ce tors; Robert II. Vaiircn- urnp of Seguin, general man- ger, and James A. Cotton of 'alias, the authority's consult ng engineer. Concrete Assurance They presented data and eta Istlcs from studies of the luadalupe going back many ears that Victoria's planntni or the attraction of new la uslrles to I his area can ased on concrete insurances f a more lhan adequate walci upply for all of the foreseeable imire. Cotton, whose englnecrlnj irm of Korresl and Cotton ilayed a key role In planning uturo water supplies for Dallas as well as In other major wa cr development projects ove he state, told tho group that h ever comes to Victoria wilhou icing impressed anew at t h lotcntial of industrial growl n this area. Runoff Study The average annual runot rom the Guadalupe Rive Is mouth amounts to a little I ixccss of acre-feel pe Cotton told the group. 0 ln's amount, approximately 1 A-F comes from I h luadalupc and from Ui San Antonio River. The flow rom Iho San Antonio Klver en crs the Guadalupe above th sail Water barrier an ho point of diversion lo the ex sling Oalhoun County c a n a system. The runoff from thf> Guadali >c at Victoria, he said, amoun ah average A-F pe year. Regulated Supply However, Cotton emphaslzef ihal this represents the unrei dialed or uncontrolled rune rom the river, and the guaran teed supply of water for actuf use must DC from a controller or regulated supply. The engineer pointed out tha Iho GBRA, under ils conlrac with the federal government, has tho right lo utilize tho full 000 A-F of conservation storage in Die Canyon reservoir. The yield from this storage has been computed at A-F per year based on Ihe mosl severe drought on record. 300.IXW Acre Feet "The regulation afforded by the Canyon aald Cot- ton, "together with tho rc-regu- ation afforded by the five hyd- o-cleclric planls In the middle uadalupe River, owned by the uthorily, will serve lo firm up supply of about A-F an- uaily at the mouth of tha river. "At tho present time, about A-F are being utilized an- ually by Irrlgalors In the lower asln. Other permits for c o n- umptive use total approximate- y A-F. Thus it can be ecu that tho water supply cre- ted by the Canyon Reservoir ombined with the runoff of the iver will make sufficient water available for a substantial ex- tansion of water use." Such supply, Cotton noted, about t w 1 c the irnount of water now being used >y the city and approximately equals the amount being uwd 'y the Houston metropolitan irea and its surrounding Indus- rial development. Cotton told the group that in timo of normal rainfall it wnild require about a year Mid half for the reservoir at Can- ron Dam, 12 miles above New Jraunfels, to completely 'filed.
