But the State Department cast doubt on the whole matter. Press officer Lincoln White said: "We have no information on this at all, and we assume~that if it had happened we would have heard about it. The first voice to shrill about this would have been radio Havana." After Havana Radio broadcast the Cuban government's statement Friday night, White had no comment. Associated Press correspondent George Arfeld said in a dispatch from Cuba that there were no visible indications that the NICO Lopez refinery outside Havana had been bombed.

The rain that fell during the night was of the gentle, soaking type which old timers would call a sizzle-sozzle. If it coritiniMfc over the week-end in the form of showers, as predicted, it could be a drouth-breaker. Crops in the Franklin County area have reached a point when rain is vital and today farmers are hoping this will be the beginning of substantial moisture for the farmlands.
