TUB OTTAWA HERALD Friday, February 22,1963 U.S. Facing Guerrilla Warfare In Caribbean By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)-The United States may be facing a period of virtual guerrilla warfare in the Caribbean area around Cuba. Whether this dangerous possibility develops appears to depend primarily on how Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro decides to use the extensive arms, including jet fighter planes, supplied to him by the Soviet Union. President Kennedy, as he made clear at a news conference Thursday, is watching the situation closely and with several unanswered questions in his mind about the fighter plane attack late * * * Thought Help Had Come, Then 4 Blam' By CHRIS MACGILL KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — A plane dipped low over a leaking, disabled American shrimp boat and its two-man crew thought help had come at last. Moments later, as the fishermen waved frantically for assistance, the pilot opened fire. "We thought it was an ordinary plane," said Benjamin Washington 27, still sounding incredulous nearly 24 hours after the incident. "We tried to signal them down." Paris Jackson, captain of the ;67-foot Fort Myers shrimper, Ala, ?and Washington, its mate, told newsmen Thursday about the attack by Cuba-based MIG fighter 'planes. It happened about 5 p.m. ;Wednesday on the high seas about ;60 miles north of Cuba. , A MIG appeared, passed by, 'circled a nearby island and returned.

The "spray," the shrimpers laid, appeared to them to be a burst of machinegun fire. The Defense Department said rockets were used. The Cuban government denied there was an attack of any land. Three more jets appeared and one of them joined in the firing, said the crewmen. The shots went into the water about 200 yards from the Ala's port bow, they reported. Both men said they were certain there were no rockets. The two stayed on deck while the MIGs circled for 15 minutes, passing low enough for the men to see the pilots' faces and to spot an emblem which "lookec like a big round thing with an eagle in it." Were they scared? "Yes, sir!' Jackson said he still hadn't recovered from the fright. The boat's engine failed Sunday That made its radio and pumps useless and all the two crewmen could do was wait for help. Jackson and Washington, weary from three days of bailing their leaky boat and the strain of their experience, were brought in by the Coast Guard. Vednesday on a U.S. shrimp boat in the Florida Straits about 60 nautical miles off the Cuban coast. Kennedy and his military and diplomatic advisers are not sure what was behind this assault on a small, unarmed vessel in international waters. The President said he was watching to see whether a pattern develops, meaning a pattern of attacks againsl surface and aircraft traveling in lie region around Castro's stronghold. If it turns out that the strike at the shrimp boat was an iso- ated incident without Cuban government sanction, concerns felt in iie top levels of the administra ion here will ease off somewhat The Cuban government saic Thursday night it was not respons ble for the attack. What the shrimp boat affair has dramatized for the moment i 'astro's ability to make trouble if he wants to. Cuba is almost completely isolated economically and diplomat! cally by the Western Hemisphere nations and is under surveillance by U.S. aircraft. Kennedy told the news confer ence that Castro's economy is in bad shape and is being subsidizec by the Soviet Union. He said var ious forms of Soviet assistance t Cuba now cost Moscow about $ million daily. Castro's capacity to carry out campaign of harassment is pro vided at the moment primarily b MIG fighters. But as Soviet force are withdrawn from the island un der Premier Khrushchev's prom ise to Kennedy, other types o weapons may fall into Castro' hands. Those include highly developer antiaircraft missiles, capable shooting down this country's high flying U2 reconnaissance planes coastal defense rockets capable o striking ships about 25 miles a sea, and naval patrol boats als armed with short range rockets.
