communiststyle strong hold 90 miles off the coast of fhe United States By ANDREW FYALL MIAMI UPDI have just re turned to Florida after a week in Fidel Castros fortress island where censorship and suppression are a part of daily life My dispatches from Havana last week were all conveniently lost by the Cubans Now I can reveal what I saw in the is land In t h e fields around the sky scraper city of Havana I saw row after row of canvas home of the Soviet technicians all brawny young men tanned by the hot tropical sun superbly fit and constantly in training They glared at me suspiciously over a barbed wire fence as I drove past their camp near El Cano 12 miles from Havana A radio mast was plainly visible from the roadway Several hundred yards away in a thicket of palm trees scores of Russian military vehicles and lor ries trucks were lined up But the only guns and uniform in sight were worn by Cubans Atthe gate of the camp which could have housed up to 3000 men Cuban soldiers carrying

Like most instructors he is a privileged person With his wife and two children he occupies two rooms in the Havana Libre once the Havana his bill heavily subsidized by the government There is suspicion and dis trust throughout the island I was well aware that my every move was watched And when I left a young intelligence officer at the Alhanv airport insisted that I should remove my shoes
