If true, there is less likelihood that the fiery dispute over surveillance flights will erupt in a clash of arms. A Soviet rocket withdrawal would go a long way toward explaining the Red prime minister’s May Day assertion that Cuba is alone in her dispute with the United States. Castro has conceded that his armed forces cannot shoot down the high-flying American planes without the Soviet rockets. Thus, when he said on May Day that “we will prevent these flights to the limits of w'hat our weapons can do,” he may have—in a veiled way—been revealing a new weapons limitation. The Soviet rockets are a remnant of the 1962 arms and manpower buildup which reached crisis proportions when detected by U S. intelligence. Soon after a .showdown that October, the Russians pulled out their intermediate range ballistic missiles and began reducing their armed forces. Two weeks ago, authorities here reported about 3,000 Russians remained on the island, but that they would soon be withdrawn, leaving in Cuban hands 24 antiaircraft missile bases equipped with Soviet rockets. Now' the word is that the missiles have been removed along with some troops, but that a large proportion of the military force remain*.
