THURSDAY EVENING, MAY ?, T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN Exile Arms Hidden In Miami? Government Won't Say WASHINGTON--(fft--U. S. governments agents may be investigating a report of Cuban refugee arsenals in Miami. But, if so, they are doing it in secrecy and silence. Official spokesmen in Washington refuse to say whether they are investigating or, in fact, have the duly to investigate the report. John Raymond, in a story copyrighted by the Boston Traveler, wrote yesterday that he had spent four days with Cuban freedom fighters in Miami last month and had seen Cuban exiles loading grenades in an apartment and had noticed a 100-pound bomb in a backyard shed. The Traveler, said Raymond, in future articles would describe Cuban arsenals in Miami. THE STORIES, which are being distributed nationally by the Associated Press, provoked a round of "no comments" in Washington. The FBI said, "We can't have any comment on that at all." The Customs Bureau said it would have no jurisdiction in the matter unless some attempt was made to export arms. The State Department said "We're not in the law enforcement business. That's the job of the Justice Department." The Justice Department said it would have nothing to say about the specific case except: "We investigate, and have investigated, violations of the neutrality act." THE NEUTRALITY act forbids launching an invasion from American soil against countries that are not at war with the United States. When asked if the Justice Department, in general, would investigate caches of arms in Miami, a spokesman replied: "We can't answer any hypothetical questions." In his articles, Raymond said the Cuban freedom fighters were the same group that flew over Havana last week and dropped five bombs into an oil refinery without causing any damage. THE ANNOUNCEMENT of the raid was first made in Washington by Alexander Rorke Jr., a writer-photographer who said he was on the plane that dropped the bombs Rorke made the announcement at a meeting of the anti- Communist Liaison Committee. Edward Hunter, chairman of the committee, told newsmen later that FBI agent began questioning committee members after Rorke spoke to them. "It is reprehensible that FBI men should be kept from important security jobs to seek to harass those who are seeking to fight the common enemy," Hunter said.
