Damage was slight, but near panic swept the hotel as sleeping guests were shake out of bed by the mid-night'bombardment.- Castro promptly blamed the United States and "mer cenary agents Cuban exiles who operate with impunit from the coast of Florida." A revolutionary Cuban student group in Miami boast ed it carried out the raid in two fully equipped vessels firing more than 60 shot Escaping Wolf Hides In Church By W. L. KNICKMEYER A church-going wolf sought sanctuary between a couple of Ada churches Saturday morning and eluded city police and county sheriff's officers intent on his capture. The wolf was first spotted by Deputy Sheriff Joe Roberts, as he (Roberts) was driving and he (the wolD was trotting north on Broad- way near Eighteenth. Before taking up the pursuit, Roberts got -on his car radio and called city police for help. Then _ Castro chargecI that sever. 1 oft more into the area. A spokesman for the group sai the bombardment, most dramati anti-Castro move since the il starred Bay of Pigs invasion 1 months ago, was made becaus of the arrival of Communist bio personnel in Cuba. "The Russian are on our soil." he said. "W cannot stand and and do nothing.

Ted Sears and Glenn Hunsucker answered the call and joined the chase. Jack Eden, undersheriff, heard the call on his own radio and also proceeded posthaste to the scene. Roberts meanwhile pursued the wolf west on Eighteenth. About the middle of the block, the wolf left the main-traveled road and took off-between the houses, head- ing north. At Seventeenth, the city coppers closed in, but the wolf slipped past and away. "He was just a pup." Sears said. "Not half grown. He looked about the size of a fox." The officers chased the animal around houses, through driveways, into and out of bushes, across Sixteenth, across Fifteenth. "Somewhere between the Baj> tist church on Fifteenth" Methodist church on Fourteenth, we lost Eden said. Apparently the church area was a regular hangout for the wolf. "There were tracks all around in the Eden reported. "It looked like he might have been hanging around there for a day or two or er buildings besides the hotel were hit by the shellfire. He made no mention of any casualties. The student group, the Director io Revolucion Estudiantil, said its !9-to-23-year-old sea raiders en countered return fire from the shore but escaped unharmed in the darkness.

A highway patrolman directing traffic north of the ranch said -he counted cars heading onto the- sprawling ranch from the highway. First-comers sat on bales of ha; and waited to see things happen. Kids played in the open .fields across from the headquarters. A few rode, horses.- Before the big crowds came some slipped off to .a secluded fishing hole. At one of the lakes a fisherman was asked if he was-anxious to make the rally..

In all, West German police esti- mated 100; rounds were', .fired by Eastern guards in four different places: As far as they could tell, no one was hit. Angry crowds, however, which a few days ago were stoning Soviet army buses and shouting insults across the Communist wall through the 'city were not to be seen as the weekend started. West Berlin police remained on the alert along the wall. .The -bitter 'indignation which' welled up after the killing on Aug. 17 of Peter an East German, seemed to be subsiding. In its place was the.old hatred and contempt for the wall and its Communist builders.

The Soviets' changed their guard at the Red 'war! memorial in West Berlin in, recoi'd time, using the three armored personnel carriers instead" of buses. At the international crossing point of the wall, Checkpoint Char- lie, they picked up an American Army escort as 'ordered by the U.S. commandant, Maj. Gen. Al- bert Watson II. The convoy sped to the monu- ment near Brandenburg Gate, de- livered the "i8, soldiers and picked up the troops-being relieved: The carriers, were back at Checkpoint Charlie in 32 minutes with.a Brit- ish army escort. The Russians, who seem to be trying to prove that it is dangerous for them to :move'.through 'West Berlin after the stonings earlier in the week, attracted .little attention. West Berlin police have placed barbed wire hear the checkpoint to keep back crowds, but it was not needed. Additional police also, are provided whenever the Soviets' appear with their personnel car- down here trying to catch a bass or two." Some'of the others admitted to just coming down for fun.
