Th : s compared with 85 per cent at the peak of support for the U.S. position in 1952.

Cuban Buzzes U S Sub HAVANA (AP) - Cuba's tiny air force has suddenly turned aggressive in guarding its coasts and surveying naval activities in international waters, after months of inactivity. The change comes at a time when the Soviet Union, has renewed promises of mDitary assistance to Prime Minister" Fidel Castro's Cuban regime. It raises speculations in Havana oh wh'o is actually flying the British-built Seafurys which have figured in incidents with U.S. Naval planes and submarines. The buzzing by a Cuban plane of an American submarine took place Friday only 28 miles from the important Key West Naval Base. -U. S. officials in Havana took a grave view of the incident. In late September U. S. Navy- sources said Cuban fighters had repeatedly shadowed air-sea training operations in international waters off the eastern tip of Cuba, involving ships and planes' from the U. S. base at Guantanamo. A week ago Cuban fighter planes.forced down a Nicaraguan cargo plane at a still undisclosed air force base. The plane, en route from Miami, Fla., to'Ma- nagua, . was released after two days of inspection of its cargo and documents. It is presumed here the Cuban planes are flown by Cuban pilots, although most of the Cuban fighter pilots were expelled from the air force, a few weeks ago. The action followed mass arrests of suspected anti-Castro conspirators in the -Air Force. Some planes are flown by Chilean instructors under contract to Cuba. The.-e are also unconfirmed reports that East, European technicians have arrived to help tr«in Castro forces. ' I
