  • Description

    PART I
    DEMOCRATIC SENATOR WAYNE MORSE OF OREGON CONFERRED YESTERDAY WITH STATE DEPARTMENT REPRESENTATIVES REGARDING AMERICA'S ATTITUDE TOWARD THE SO CALLED "WAR CRIMES" TRIALS BEING CONDUCTED IN CUBA.

    SENATOR MORSE HAS BEEN CRITICIZED BY A CUBAN REBEL SPOKESMAN........AS A "BLEEDING HEART", BECAUSE OF HIS PROTESTS AGAINST REBEL TRIAL AND EXECUTION METHODS. SENATOR MORSE COMMENTED ON THIS, AS FOLLOWS:
    PART II
    CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE URGED THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH TO APPOINT A CUBAN AMBASSADOR IMMEDIATELY AND THROUGH HIM, TO EXERT THE FORCE OF AMERICAN PUBLIC OPINION TO HELP BRING ABOUT A MORE JUST AND ORDERLY SYSTEM OF TRIALS FOR CUBA'S WAR CRIMINALS.

    CONGRESSIONAL LEADER MET WITH ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE ROY R. RUBOTTOM (CQ) IN AN ATTEMPT TO DETERMINE WHAT ACTION, IF ANY, AMERICA SHOULD TAKE TOWARD THE HASTY EXECUTIONS NOW TAKING PLACE IN CUBA. DEMOCRAT WAYNE MORSE, CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS SUB-COMMITTEE ON LATIN.....AMERICAN AFFAIRS, WAS LATER ASKED BY NEWSMEN WHETHER HE THOUGHT THE UNITED STATES SHOULD SEND A NOTE TO THE CUBAN GOVERNMENT.

    TO AVOID ANY POSSIBLE MISUNDERSTANDING, OUR NAVY HAS CANCELLED PLANS FOR 3-THOUSAND MARINES TO STOP OFF IN CUBA DURING MANEUVERS.

    CASTRO MADE TWO POINTS YESTERDAY -- HE WANTS GOOD RELATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES -- BUT WILL NOT SUBMIT TO OUTSIDE PRESSURE TO HALT THE EXECUTIONS.

    THE LATEST COUNT OF THE TOLL TAKEN BY THE FIRING SQUADS IS 197.

    SPEAKING FROM EXILE IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, EX-CUBAN DICTATOR BATISTA, CALLS THE EXECUTIONS "SYMBOLS OF BARBARITY."
