Mrs.Gotcher Again Winner By POLLY O'CONNELL A Cuban political refugee, Antonio Carillo, sat besides hig lovely bride, the Mr, blue-eyed Maria Elena, In the living room of their Freeport home. He was looking at pictures of their wedding in a Cuban Catholic church, studying each photo intently — he was not present for the ceremony. Antonio was present for their other two w e d d i ngs, however. This gives him an advantage most husbands do not have. If he forgets to bring Maria Elena a gift on the date of the first marriage, he still has time fo get something for one of the two other dates. Antonio was an employee of Frceport Nickel Company in Cuba, a subsidiary of Freeport Sulphur Company, when he fled from Cuba to Canada in April. In August, US Immigration Department officials granted ' him the status of a political refugee so he could enter this country. He went to work as production engineer for Stauffer Chemical Company in Freeport on Aug. 8. He then began plans to bring Maria Elena here. They met in her hometown of Santiago de Cuba in February of 1959.,In November they announced their engagement with the customary official party at her home.

Later, she and her family talked to an Archbishop; who said the Miami marriage would be very complt cated as She did not: know anyone there. He suggested i proxy wedding before she left Cuba. Antonio consulted the Rev. George Beck of St Mary: Star of the "Sea Catholic Church, in Freeport. They prepared a letter certifying Maria Elena's uncle-to act as proxy for Antonio -during the Cuban ceremony. Oh Oct. 27, the wedding took place in a Catholic church wit!] the bride's relatives acd friends present — only the actual bride- one year in Ashville, NC, and I not speak Spanish so Maria Elena groom was missing.

When he learned that he'd probably have to hire a lawyer and go to some expense in checking the matter, he decided to take out a marriage license in A n g I eton and go through the marriage ceremony again. On Nov. 15 the ceremony was performed in the rectory of St. Mary's. Antonio now feels well- married. ^ He was educated mostly in the US. He attended high school for graduated with an engineering degree from Georgia Tech hi 1958. Antonio began his engineering profession with Freeport Nickel at New Orleans. After three months he was transferred to the Cuban plant. In hesitating to talk about the Cuban situation, he explains that IBs wife's relatives are still in that country and he wants to do nothing that could cause them any trouble. "My relatives are all in this country now, but my mother and grandfather hope to return to Cuba someday. It's their home, you know —" Antonio explains. He says he has no intentions of returning to Cuba , and could not under present conditions. He tells how the. government is clamping down on professional men, doctors, engineers, lawyers, who might also use a tourist's permit to get out of Cuba as Antonio did, with the intention of staying away permanently. He had difficulty in obtaining his tourist's permit to leave Cuba. The process usually takes just a few days, but he was given various excuses for the lengthy delay before the permit was issued. When Castro came into power, 99 percent of the Cubans were Antonio says, "They trusted him." He recalls having Christmas of 1958 with his family in Havana under Batista's regime. On arriving Castro was in cuiitrol there.'Batista left Cuba on Jan. 1 of 1333 and Castro had won his battle io head the government. Antonio's family began to leave Cuba as the department store o( two uncles Was taken over by the government, and the food store of another uncle was also confiscated,' His grandfather had a number of houses he leased out for income. They were all taken away except for the one where Jhe grandfather lived. Another u n cle was in the insurance) business. "It was dying, too. There was nothing left- to insure," fjtotonio says.

When me CarrKos moved into their home at 730 West Eighth the first part of Decermer, Antonio set a rule. "From the time I arrive home after work each day, no Spanish is spoken.' Maria Elena is learning English at a fast pace as a result She says she says she likes to knit and has already whipped up i a red sweater for her husband.] She also likes movies, radio and television. She enjoyed watching Perry Mason shown on Cuban television with Spanish sub-titles. It will probably be a long time before she can see her relatives in Cuba. "It would be asking for trouble if she went back for a visit,' Antonio says. When she said she was not too homesick, her husband said, "Perhaps she should answer that when I am not around." But the much-married Carrillos smiled at each other, appearing to be very happy as they begin their married life in Freeport.
