ANOTHER COVE ACCIDENT - Ano-ther in a string of accidents occurred Saturday night in the new Cove area of Flagler Drive at Gematis Street, according to the West Palm Beach Police Nigeria Attacks Kennedy For 'Support' Of Biafra LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) -The government-owned Sunday Post attacked Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., for what it said was his support of breakaway Biafra. It claimed Kennedy planned to visit Umua-hia, the last major town in Biafran hands. In Washington, a spokesman for Kennedy said he "has no plans to go there whatsoever" and maintained that the senator's onlv interest in the Ni- Continued From Page 1 the other men kept their hands in their pockets. "It was designed and planned. They knew exactly what they were doing." The plane landed at Havana at 8:41 p.m. EST Saturday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. It was the 13th hijacked aircraft this year in the United States. "At Havana." Moore said, "several armed personnel came on board the plane in succession. They were in uniform, and viewed the situation. Then we were ordered off, as a group, and were marched into the main terminal building and proceeded to sit there three hours. "We didn't know what was going on. About midnight they ordered us on a bus. There were 80 of us, on three buses. We took a three hour-trip to Varadero. "Then we waited in the terminal thereabout four hours. "Several times on the ride from Havana to Varadero, I saw armed personnel, civilians with rifles. We asked why and were told Cubans take turns doing this, to maintain order. It is a police state. "The bus was made in Czechoslovakia. The seat I was in was back, and I couldn't get it forward. The man behind me tore his pants on the metal of his seat. It's their standard operating equipment. But it was a junk heap. "At Havana, they brought in some ham and cheese sandwiches about 11 p.m., and they were cold. The nextmorn ing. at Varadero. we were told we were going to have breakfast. And there were more cold ham and cheese sandwiches. "We couldn't get much sleep on the bus. The whole experience was a very diluted form of brainwashing, like ha-ing lights on and water dripping. We never knew what was going to happen. It was contrived mystery. "Alter the so-called breakfast at the Varadero airport, we were taken by bus to the Varadero Hotel. It is probably the plushiest hotel they've got. But four other men and I were assigned to a cottage. I tried to take a shower, but the water was cold, and it hardly ran at all. This is the working man's paradise. The elite were staying there. "Their parking lot wouldn't qualify for our worst used car lot. "We were herded like sheep all the time. There were whippersnapper types who assigned us rooms. When we arrived at the hotel, we were marched out into the middle of a compound, about 200 yards away. These super-group men started looking for rooms. They didn't go to the hotel desk. There were cottages near the main hotel. These men would call out, Here's one that nobo-dv's in. Number 5.' I was assigned to cottage 22. "I was missing my luggage. They had let us take our personal possessions from inside the plane, but nothing from the baggage compartment. My medicine was in my bag. I had a cold, and it s become worse. "I walked from my cottage up to the hotel and got some aspirin lor my cold, and saw a large group of East Germans, who were interesting. There were 200 or 300 on a four-week tour, I was told. I looked at the beach, which is very beautiful, then walked back and had the shower and took a brief nap. "About noon Sunday they rousted us out and we had lunch at the hotel We had soup that was like flavored water. There were 10 people at my table, but only two had soup. We had cold white bread which was good, considering. On several occasions they offered us what 1 call N-L beer that's beer with no label, just brown bottles. For lunch we had rice and some sort of roast beef with gravy. The dessert was pretty good layer cake and ice cream. "We were taken by bus to the Varadero airport and went immediately on a plane. We came back on the International Airlift, (a DC-71 which is basically the same plane that brings refugees. " Moore returned to Miami Sunday afternoon and was met by his wife, who had spent the night there, not knowing when her husband might arrive. They drove back to West Palm Beach Sunday night and rejoined their young children. Summing things up. Moore said. "There was no spokesman for our group. It was all an act of discombolula-tion. It was one ordeal after another. We spent three hours here and three hours there. We were bused around and not allowed to sleep. On the trip from Havana to Varadero. there was a mother in front of me with a baby. She asked how long it would take. A Cuban said. 'One hour, maybe an hour and 20 minutes.' That Cuban knew damn well it was three hours. That's the sort of brainwashing thev dish out - Iving like that. "We sat in the terminal in Havana for three hours and nobody came or went. Their big airport is a dead animal. We were told the only flights they make are to Mexico, Spain, and Czechoslovakia. "We were totally in their power. When we got off the plane, we didn't know where the captain and crew were. Several hours later a man appeared, apparently Swiss. The captain and crew came out of a room and shook hands with this man. That's the only time we saw them. And we never got to speak to the Swiss." In additon to seeing armed men continuously. Moore noticed posters boosting communism, such as "Until the Eternal Victory" i in Cuban) with pictures of Che Guevara. There were billboards along the roads concerning Vietnam, with slogans such as "Revolutionaries, We Are Behind You." Moore noticed eight Russian planes at the Varadero airport seveno f them crop dusters I. and one strange-looking car that he was told was Polish. As of Sunday night. Moore still had not gotten his luggage back "You appreciate our country when you visit a place like that.

Claiming Kennedy planned to visit Umuahia, it asked whether he "intends to carry his months-old anti-Nigerian campaign right into Nigerian territory." The name Kennedy, the editorial said, "has developed between the white races of the Western world and the black peoples of Africa." But, it added, "We realize friends today can become enemies tomorrow." The editorial said Kennedy supported "clandestine promotion of the rebellion" by backing the Roman Catholic relief organization Caritas and advocating an unconditional cease-fire "under the guise of a humanitarian concern for the alleged suffering of people in the rebel-held areas." If Kennedy does not change his mind, it concluded, "he will have succeeded in destroying through a few ill-advised actions and utterances all the good will his family and country have labored for years to build in Nigeria." Plane Hulk Salvaged SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Huge cranes lifted a 220.000-pound Japan Air Lines DC8 Sunday from the San Francisco Bay where it crash-landed without injury to the 107 persons aboard. The jet was hoisted free of the water about 5:30 a.m. Workmen had been busy since before dawn placing and adjusting sophisticated cradles and slings under the giant wings and fuselage. The plane crash-landed Friday in water seven feet deep. Four cranes lilted the plane about 15 feet above the water and lowered it on a 6-ton barge. The only apparent damage appeared to be a missing wheel on the right landing gear. The crew had hoped earlier to get the plane transported Sunday night to the seaplane terminal at International Airport three miles to the north. The cradles had to be placed exactly so the strain of lifting would not buckle the plane's struts, and each cradle was cushioned with 4x8 foot plywood sheets to distribute the stress.
