Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Odar Rapids Gazette: Wed.. Aor. 28, 1974    9aExiles See ‘Ominous’ Signs of U.S.-Cuban Ties MIAMI (AP) - The possibility of renewed relations between Cuba and the IJ S is viewed as "anti t uba” by most of the large exile population in this country Exile leaders see ominous signs leading to some kind of Cuban-American break through in The resignation of Richard Nixon and ascendency to the presidency of a more openminded Gerald Ford. The recent visit to Cuba of a high-level representative of the* senate foreign relatons committee. Pat Holt. Repeated calls by Mexican President Luis Echeverria and others for a Latin-American change in Cuban policy. A Costa Rican move to have Cuba readmitted to the Organization of American States By far the most serious, in the exiles’ view, is Nixon’s exit. So long as he was in office, refugees were virtually assured of the maintenance of the status quo with the Caribbean island dominated for the last lf) years by Fidel Castro and his Communist revolution. There were several reasons. Chief among them was Nixon’s personal antagonism to Castro and the former President’s close friendships with such influential people of Cuban background as ('. G. “Bebe” Rebozo. “Understanding" “They hadn’t finished burying President Nixon before the elements pressuring for a change in U.S. policy to Cuba emerged to express their conviction that his downfall will open the doors for an understanding with Castroism,” said a leading Cuban-owned newspaper in Miami “And they are right," said the widely read publication. Patria The newspaper referred to frequent calls by Sens. Fulbright, McGee, McGovern. Kennedy and others for a U.S.-Cuban reconciliation. ‘ Now the pressures will . . . not encounter the resistance they have been getting from the White House," said Patria “We Cubans will have to face a new process." A number of leading exiles predict Ford and Secretary of State Kissinger will move soon to seek some sort of detente. Some appear resigned to the idea. One, who just spent a hard-earned $50 to send four small bottles of antibiotics and vitamins to relatives in Cuba via Spain, said: “Suffering People" “I hope relations are re-established soon now. We might as well have that. The people there are the ones who are suffering. Relations (with the U.S.) would help them. Fidel is there to stay, anyhow." The statement appears to be an emerging view of reality, one which most refugees have not publicly admitted in the past But there is by no means unanimity on the issue. Fxile colonies in Miami, New York, Chicago, Puerto Rico. Spain and other places are forums of contradiction as to what the refugees should do in the face of what seems a certain recognition of Cuba. Miami’s 300.000 Cubans, by far the largest exile group, are at odds with themselves and officialdom over the situation Some militant groups such as Alpha HH, Aecion Cubana and the Cuban National Liberation Front have intensified revolutionary-terrorist campaigns aimed at demoralizing the Cuban regime and what they term the reawakening of the conscience of the world to their plight. Continue Struggle “No change in relations is going to change our ideology or divert us from our task in any way,’’ says Andres Nazario Sargen, secretary-general of Alpha HH, the oldest and most active of the anti-Castro movements. “Our struggle on the island will continue until we achieve a complete changeover in the system ’’ Alpha fit) claims a growing LAFF - A - DAY _____ “No, it s not a modern dance class one of them tipped over the ant farm " number of adherents in Cuba and Nazario says “There is more internal opposition on the island now than ever." Ile says the Miami-based group lias evidence of a conspirac y within Cuban army ranks and Alpha “is increasing efforts to stimulate it." Alpha’s activity was spotlighted again early this month when the Cuban government announced the arrest of three Miami operatives, two of whom we’re attempting to infiltrate the’ country’s southe’rn coast The> Cuban interior ministry c harged Hie* “counter revolu-titularies" had previously escaped island prisons and fled the e ountry through the IJ S naval base at Guantanamo Aecion Cubana, headed by fugitive Dr Orlando Bosch, is selling bonds ranging from $11) to $1,000 to raise* a $.1 million war chest to finance Castro’s assassination. Price on ( astro Thousands of    le»a f I e*t s proclaiming the $:{ million price tag on Castro’s head have* flooded exile centers throughout the* country “The’ more bonds you buy, the* quicker we* will liquidate’ him,’’ the’ leafle ts declare “Death to the despot Bonds mean the death of the* tyrant.” Bosc h, a pediatrician, was released from the* U.S. federal prison in Marion, III , in late 1972 afte*r having served four years on charges of conspiracy to import arms, ammunition and implements of war He* headed a group calling itself Cuban Power in the’ 1980s and was linked to the shelling in Miami’s port of a Polish ship w hich had been to Cuba. The* FBI office in Miami says Bosch is now in v iolation of parole, and agents would like to question him about the killing of noted exile leade’r .Jose Torriente in April.
