The Pentagon announced last april that one Yankee class submarine had been detected cruising 1,200 to 1,500 Miles off the East coast. Since then the defense department has said nothing about the periodic operations of several Yankee class submarines much closer to the coast. None have so far been noticed in the Caribbean but the analysts pointed out that they could have operated undetected.

The military analysts believe this Means that the russians intend to use the Large Harbor at Cienfuegos As a sheltered Anchorage for a tender that will service the Yankee class submarines. Aside from the tender the soviets need Little More than possibly a Small facility ashore to House the submarine Crews and provide them with recreation. Recently the Pentagon reported evidence of construction activity ashore at Cienfuegos and a White House official followed this up with a warning to the soviet Union against install Ting a strategic submarine base in a Cuba. Subsequently after hearing secret testimony from defense intelligence officers sen. Frank Church a Idaho termed the evidence of construction activity presented a a inconclusive and cautioned the administration against a inflammatory military analysts say they Are j not sure what the new construction at Cienfuegos signifies but they say it could be a Small facility for submarine Crew housing and recreation. If it is not they note that the russians could accomplish their purposes by keeping a Large tender and one or two More ships in Cienfuegos and building nothing ashore.
