Storm hits Seattle area SEATTLE (AP) The Pa- cific northwest, still recovering from last weeks' heavy rain storms and flooding, was hit Monday and Tuesday by howling snowstorm. At least two traffic deaths in Washington were attributed to the gale-force winds and heavy snow, as travellers warnings were posted for Washington, northern Idaho and Montana west of the Continental Divide. The national weather service !n Seattle said snow was likely :o continue in most of western Washington before subsiding and giving way to partial clearing and colder tempera- tures. The Washington State 'atrol urged motorists hroughout the state to stay off he roads except for emergen- cies. In Seattle where any snow on the ground is somewhat a rarity police reported drifts 3t up to seven feet in the down, own area. The Washington State Patrol r e p o r t ed separate storm-re- ated fatalities in Spokane bounty and Benton County. Troopers said Virgil F.

Twenty or more militant or- ganizations once plotted the overthrow of Cuban Premier Fidel Castro in smoky meeting halls in Miami's "Little Ha- vana" district. Now, 13 years later, there are only about half dozen active groups, and of, these are "revolution- ary" in name only. The rest have given up the battle, turned their attention elsewhere or gone into hiberna- lion. Many have disappeared from the scene. One exists only as a name- plate on a battered, unpainted door at the top of a steep flight of rickety stairs over a restaur- ant. Another only on a calling card in the wallet of its portly the organi- zation's only member. Besides Castro's endurance, he exile cause has been further demoralized by conflicts, jeal- ousies and rivalries among the eaders of its few active groups. TIME HELPS CASTRO The disunity has never been mere pronounced than it is at present, with growing divisions imong its frustrated leaders as they jockey for favor among Mi- ami's refugees. The common objective, "El more distant with each passing day. Castro has used the time to strengthen bis power on the tiny island once known as the Pearl of the Antilles. Sporadic hit-and-run attacks are still being carried out against the isalnd, but on a dim- inishing scale and one which ap- pears to yield even lesser re- sults than in the past. Political observers note that Castro gains substantial propaganda' value from such commando raids by depicting them as coming from the powerful United States against his small, defenceless country. Some of the attacks against the island have led to confusion and dismay even among this country's exile colony. One newly-formed organiza- tion is being widely accused of perpetrating a gigantic hoax by claiming a firtious "Cuban in- faking injuries to its participants and falsifying "on- photos. SMALL BAND INVADED The leader of the expedition, former Cuban Supreme Court Justice Francisco Alabau TreEes, has threatened to sue his critics. Alpha 66, perhaps the best known and the most militant of all such groups, continues its eight-year-old policy of "limited warfare" against the Castro government. But its last known mini-invasion of the island by a small band of infil- place in mid-1970. Despite this country's legal obstacles and its increased vigi- lance of Alpha's activities, the firebrand organization continues to hatch its plots from a shabby, rented house in Miami's bustling northwest business dis- trict. Alpha's strength appears to lie in its historic roots and the fact that it has actually sent men onto the island while others only claim to have done so. Its leaders deny reports that it has training camps in the Florida Everglades and that at- tacks against Cuba are launched from American shores, but they do not conceal the active recruitment and "limited training" of comman- dos in the U.S. Separated twins go home Friday EDMONTON (CP) Cyn- thia and Christine, separated Siamese twins, will be allowed to go home Friday, Dr. Reuben Weinberg, pediatrician for the girls, said Tuesday. "All's he told a news conference. "This has been a piece of teamwork that has Just gone like a dream." The girls, now three months old, were separated in a hour operation 16 days ago. They were joined at the abdo- mens by a three-inch band of tissue. Dr. Weinberg said the girls have had a routine post-opera- tive period and the stitches closing the abdominal wounds have been removed. He forsees no post-operative problems. The parents will come to Ed- monton today from their home in northern Alberta. The par- ents have asked to remain anonymous and the hospital has complied with their wishes. Riches-to-rags Hollywood story HOLLYWOOD (AP) It's one of those riches-to-rags sto- ries that' Hollywood pretends are make-believe. Arlene De- Marco, youngest of the singing DeMareo Sisters, has been liv- ing on welfare for two years. "I went from wearing false fingernails that cost apiece to having dishpan says Miss DeMarco who now lives with her two young daughters in South Plainfield, N.J: She was back in Hollywood after a 10-year absence to pro- mote her first book, Triangle, a scorching sex-filled tale of show business in which the charac- ters bear striking resemblances to real celebrities. The portraits are mostly unflattering." "Let's make no bones about it in it for the says the dark-haired Miss DeMarco. But she denies she used ttie book to get even with stars she disliked. "There arc parts of my life in if, but only the author knows which she says. WERE I1EADLINERS Arlene, who says she's "over was in the spotlight a long time. She was five when she and her four sisters started singing on the old Fred Allen radio show. For 17 years they were New York's Paramount, in Las Vegas and on TV with Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason and Kate Smith. Then, one by one, the sisters married and their husbands ob- jected to constant travel. In 1961, the act folded. By then, Arlene was married to actor Kecfe Brasselle, and, as she re- calls, "We were very wealthy. I didn't have to work." The marriage broke up in 1967, an unfriendly separation, and Arlene says they still aren't divorced. She headed back to New Jersey to be near her fam-' ily, taking with her daughters Rosanna, 7, and Melisa, 6. She claims she had no finan- cial resources when she applied for welfare. She collects 8 "Keefe and I used ,to go through that much In an says she has promised to pay back the government as soon as she makes some money. She figures she now owes the state If there are offers, she'll re- sume singing. "I didn't leave show business; it left But for now she's banking on the book to bring in funds and has already signed to do another. It will be called Whatever Hap- pened to the Wife, an advice manual for women scorned.
