Soviet ships have moved heavy barges and other equipment into the Harbor at Cienfuegos Over the past few weeks which a makes us feel they May be seeking sustained capabilities in the area a Pentagon sex hell s Angel refused to kill by Sterling Tucker reporter news staff writer Wayne Butcher 24, an a member of the Hellas Angels motorcycle gang who left the gang because he refused to kill will speak at the Belmont Baptist Church saturday at 7 . On what Christ has done for him. In november of 1967 the Hellas Angels left Butcher a 24-year-old Tulia native for dead in the Arizona desert he said in an interview Here Friday afternoon. They had chased him for three Days because he had committed an unpardonable sin though he was third from the top in the California gang he had refused to join his Fellows in killing a California Highway patrolman by running Over him with his motorcycle. A i swerved to miss him and just kept going though i knew it meant death for me if they caught me a he said. The former Hellas Angel figured he did no to have much to lose in running from his gang anyway. He had already been marked for death because As a user of heroin and several of the hallucinogenic drugs he was in the opinion of gang leaders a a Little too free with his words a he said. A gang leaders did no to approve of our using the hard drugs for that very reason a Butcher explained. A they knew if any of us who did were caught by the police the whole gang would be after being left in the Arizona desert for dead he woke up two months later in a Flagstaff Hospital. He had been in a coma for eight weeks. He stayed in the Hospital and was cured of his drug habit. As soon As he was Well enough to travel he went Back Home to Tulia where he lived with his Mother and found a Job As a Mechanic. One weekend he decided to share an apartment with a Mechanic Friend. He said a monday night this Friend was dressed in a suit and asked me go to Church with him. I did no to believe in god so he Wayne Butcher. To speak Here went to Church without me but he kept after me every night to go to Church with him a Wayne said. A finally on thursday i went with him just to shut him up. I sat in the Back Row and read the hymnal and did everything else i could think of to see Angel pm. 2-a spokesman Jerry w. Friedheim announced. Asked if the base is intended to support russians new Yankee class submarines each of which carries 16 missiles and is similar to the . Polaris subs Friedheim replied a we can to Nile out that the White House official said such submarines clearly would be offensive in nature and thus would bring into play the policy Kennedy enunciated. He added that this country a would View the establishment of a strategic base in the Caribbean with utmost he said no representations on the subject have yet been made to the soviet Union adding that the United states is keeping close watch to determine what kind of weapons could be based at the site where activity has been spotted. A at the right moment a the administration official said the United states a will take the action that seems the russians have 13 of the Yankee Type nuclear powered submarines and Are building 15 More according to the Pentagon. Officials have reported that one or More Are now stationed in the Atlantic. Friedheim had declined to make any comparison Between the threat posed to the United states in 1962 when the russians moved Long Range missiles into Cuba and the new development at Cienfuegos on cubans Southern Shore. A we cannot be positive what the intention is a he said. A we Are keeping a close watch on these activities and Are continuing to obtain information on soviet activities the new facilities at Cienfuegos were spotted by High flying american u2 reconnaissance planes the same aircraft that spotted the russian missiles eight years ago. The soviets removed the missiles within a few weeks after president Kennedy threatened direct action and mobilized . Forces for a possible attack. The United states uses bases at holy Loch Scotland Rota Spain and the Island of Guam to support Polaris subs cruising in european and Pacific Waters. These bases enable the Craft to remain near their stations by eliminating the need to make the Long trip Home for servicing and supplies. A similar facility at Cienfuegos would enable Russia to keep More of its nuclear and conventional subs in Western Waters for longer periods. The soviets have no permanent naval facilities in the Western hemisphere. Friedheim noted that although soviet subs and surface ships have operated from Cienfuegos in the past there had been no permanent facilities in the Harbor for their use. The submarine tender and three other soviet ships Are now in the Harbor however there Are no submarines at present. Friedheim said the three heavy barges brought into Cienfuegos were carried on the deck of a soviet amphibious Craft first spotted by . Ships shadowing a soviet task Force As it ceased the Atlantic earlier this month. He sidestepped speculation that the barges might be used As a floating dry Dock. Cienfuegos which Means a Aioo fires in Spanish is located about 40 Miles East of the Bay of pigs site of the aborted 1961 invasion by a group of american supported cuban exiles trying to overthrow prime minister Fidel Castro.

Those backing up the City a position say that Abilene citizens pay taxes to support the City and therefore employees should be under the same tax Structure and municipal government otherwise the question is asked How can they work in the Best interests of the City those against the Rule seem to ask Why it makes any difference where a person lives As Long As he does his work in an acceptable manner.
