I. (UP) -i 10 Cuban government was report- 1 authoritatively still to be hold- K eight or 10 Americans today In nnection with the aborted plot to vade the Dominican Republic and 'ei throw the regime of deneralls- mo Rafael I,. Trujlllo Molina. A spokesman for the United latcs embassy denied that pres- irc from Washington had collap- cd the plot, which was finally roken up last Monday with the tpture of tu'o transports and an xpeditioiiary force of 900 men by ic Cuban navy. By order ol me <Juo»n Supreme lourt, 376 rank-and-flle revolution- rie-'i were released last night from Camp Columbia near Havana. These vere the men the expeditionary orce had cast off as military mis- its before it sailed for Ciudad Tru- illo a' week Rgo. Among the ones turned loose were 2 who had been put Into stronicr cits after they started a hunger tiike. Tin 1 900 members of the expeditionary force were still in Camp Columbia, although the supreme ourt may issue an order today di- ccting the Cuban army to let the ank-nnd-iile of them go. Officials identified the following is Americans: Capt. Hollis B. Smith, ,laj. Daniel Martil. CapU. Dowell Sherwood. Ernest I. Stack, and Hu- icrt Waddle and Pvts. Thomas Mawyer. Samuel Stock. William Picketl nnd David Plaggatt. No charges had been placed Tgainst any of these men. The Cuban Army announced that 15 nationalities were represented n the SOO-'innn expeditionary force. They included eight generals, five lieutenant colonels (no colonels), 12 majors, 50 captains, about 150 first and second lieutenants and a liberal representation of sergeant- majors, sergeants and corporals. Gillian officers said that, despite the comparatively small size of the expeditionary force, it would have given Trujillo's U.S. Marine-trained army "plenty of trouble" because of the revolutionaries' training and militant spirit. The arms and ammunition they had with them were valued at $500.000. In denying that American pressure had been responsible for breaking up the plot, the U. S. embassy took cognizance of widespread reports, some of them printed here, that pressure from Washington was responsible. It was believed, however, that the embassy's denial was prompted less by what newspapers said than by the fact that the expeditionary force had done some derogatory shouting against the United States when it was brought to Camp Columbia.
