CAP) - Sixty-two wounded and ailing survivors of the Cuban invasion, still wearing their prison uniforms, limiied down the steps of an airliner Saturday into the arms of their joyously weeping families. Thousands of exiled Cubans thronged Miami International Airport to greet the first men liberated since Prime Minister Fidel Castro’s forces rounded up the invaders nearly a year ago. All were hurried to Mercy Hospital, some in ambulances. But all managed to leave the airliner under their own power. Each paused to give a brave military' salute before starling down the steps—a tortured descent for most of them. A roar went up from the wait ing thousands as the big plane taxied into view and a cloud ofj waving handkerchiefs appeared! over the heads of the throng. j But as the door of the plane; opened and the first prisoner emerged, a strange stillness fell over the crowd Tears were on almost every cheek. Twice the! crowd attempted to sing the Cuban national anthem but voices faltered and broke. Little was said as the prisoners!

Witnesses also tolci of automobiles loaned for indefinite periods, shifting of typewriters in issuing credit letters, flights in Estes’ airplanes by agricultur# department and lending company officiak, and special devices al* lowing easy switches of serial numbers.
