The visit, which will bring So- viet warships close to the south- eastern shores o! the United Stales, has stirred considerable speculation among diplomats here. Since the Soviet naval visit Is timed for Cuba's national day on July 26, it can be regarded as a further sign of improving re- lations between Moscow and Havana, which had grown cool in recent years.- The fart that the squadron is venturing into waters long re- garded as in the U.S. domain, Indicates that Soviet leaders are continuing to carry out a policy of showing the flag in all the world's waters. ,The timing of the announce- ment, more than two weeks be- fore the actual visit, led diplo- mats to speculate that the visit might be a sort of "retaliation" for President Nixon's planned visit to Rumania on Aug. 2. The Soviet Union has not commented officially on the Nix- on mission, and in private con- versations with Western diplo- mats, Soviet officials have said the trip to Bucharest should not pose any obstacles to im- proving U.S. Soviet relations. Some sniping at Nixon in the Soviet press over the weekend has led diplomats to believe Moscow cannot be very happy with his venturing into eastern Europe. In their opinion, the naval squadron's visit to Cuba may be an indirect way in say- ing lhal (wo can play the same game. Other diplomats believe the trip lo Caribbean waters is re- lated more to Soviet displeasure with the periodic visits by American warships into the Black Sea, which, although an international sea, has long been regarded by the Soviet Union as being within its general security area. The TASS announcement said the squadron would consist of a rocket cruiser, two screening ships, which observers believe are destroyers or destroyer es- corts, two submarines, a moth- er ship and a (anker. The only reason given by TASS for the trip is that "this visit will help further strengthen friendly relations between the Soviet and Cuban peoples." The ships will also be in Cuba for Soviet Navy Day, July 27. Soviet propagandists have al ready begun a campaign in hon or of that day, pointing toward the growing strength of the navy, hng regarded as the weakest of the Soviet armed forces. -In recent, years, the Soviet navy has reorganized its marines, stepped up production of missile carrying subma- rines and rocket cruisers, and has begun construction of a se- ries of helicopter carriers. The Soviet navy's presence In the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean, along with its regular cruising in the Pacific and At- lantic Oceans, has caused con- cern lo some Western military leaders. lurnmg soldiers of the 3rd Bat- lalion, 60th Infantry, 9th Infan- try Division.

A total of nine persons fled the late evening fire, which swept through the attic and left'gaping holes in the roof of the three- story apartment building at 36 and 38 Courtland St Hen Hospltafaed Taken to Memorial Hospital was; fireman Robert Ouellette of the Crown Hill station. He was rushed from the scene after he overcome by the heavy smoke. Also injured In the battle was Rllliam Garneau of Central sta- tion. Kre officials said coupling blown loose by i car crossing t hose struck and in- ured his ankle. He had to leave the scene after the mishap The fire was first noticed at ibout It p. m. by Lawrence Houle, who had just arrived home at his second-floor apartment with jis wife when he smelled smoke. Fire Chief Albert Tanguay saH Houle went to the attic to in- vestigate, but found it so hot in the area that he could not ap- proach it. Units from Amberst Street, Central and Airport stations an- swered the alarm. Tanquay said the fire had "been aiming for some time" when firemen arrived. He soled that the Houles, whose apartment is immediately below the attic, wf re away, all day. Aroused Occupants Houle reportedly raa through the building rousing the other oc- cupants after he turned in the alarm. Besides Houle, his wife and their sen. the apartment buSd- ng boused Mrs, Huel WatMns, Mrs. and Mrs. Forest Cramer and son, and Haris Salgals and us mother. All of them escaped the fire safely.., The house is owned by Dr. An- drew Weston. c{ 40 Concord St. Fbe building is ell-shaped, with asbestos siding and an asphalt roof. Tanguiy said actual fire dam- age was limited to the attic and the roof, that the second story sobered much water damage and some smoke damage. He that firemen had the Maze unfcr control in about 30 rain- utis. According lo Tanguay, the fire probably started in the center portion of the itfic, which is par- titioned off. This partitioning re- sulted in firemen using seven lad- ders pros a big aerial ladder to gain entry to all parts of the at- tic. Local fire officials were at the scene this morning to investigate the cause. Dr. Weston lauded firemen for their efforts salvage clothing and other items. "They put sal- vage bags on a Iot_of he said this morning, .they dragged out other articles." Second Fire The Courtland Street fire was the second serious cue of the day.
