MILITARY IS VITAL Strict Controls Govern Cubans HAVANA (AP) -Despite many harsh economic setbacks and political crises, Fidel Castro's grip on Cuba appears to be firmer than ever. This is the judgment of both Communist and non-Communist diplomats and many pro- and anti-Castro Cubans. In his mercurial way, Castroi often alienated friends and arn noyed allies, but he has com founded and crushed his ene4 mies as they arose. Cuban and foreign observers Bee no possibility now for any internal uprising and no chance of success for any attacks by exiles. The army, estimated at 80, 000 to 100,000, is said to b< strongly armed and well- trained. Fidel's brother Raul ijs minister of the revolutionary armed forces but Fidel holds the title of commander in chief. The army is backed by militia and reserve forces of unknown military capacity numbering around 200,000, according to observers. The militia — men and women in khaki trousers and blue denim shirts, armed with pistols or rifles — are seen every where. They stand sentry duty on street corners or in front o' uildings. Most work in the mildings — hotels, ministries, government offices, factories. ?hey put in about eight hours _.uard duty weekly and attend military training courses. The state security service, the central investigation and police torce, has a widespread network watching against counterrevolu- .ionary activity. Keeping eyes on tiearly all citizens are more ihan 100,000 committees for de- [ense of the revolution. These are the neighborhood committees of Castroite zealots — a committee on just about every city block — whose duty it is to know who lives there and what he or she is doing and why. The control apparatus is extended further by the Communist party cells in offices, farms and factories. The members of the Union of Young Communists are spread throughout schools, universities, stores and offices. Women are organized in the Communist Federation of Women, headed by Vilma Espin, wife of Raul Castro. This complex, penetrating system of control of thought and action explains why Cubans, although they may still grumble, are careful — "talking a lot less these days," one commented. The number of political prison- oners in Cuba is unknown. Estimates by foreign observers range from 25,000 to 40,000. U.S. broadcasts to Cuba are jammed on the medium wave broadcast band in Havana. But the Florida stations are heard clearly in other parts of the .island and in Havana many listen to the Voice of America's short- wave broadcasts.
