Leon Cantave was reported leading his Haitian rebel invaders in a southwest thrust beyond Cap Haitien today, apparently trying to cut off the north coast and northwest part of the Negro republic. President Francois Duvalier airlifted at least 150 soldiers from Port Au Prince over the rebel lines to the vicinity of Cap Hai­ tien, Associated Press correspondent Robert Berrellez reported from the Haitain capital. The approximately 500 invaders, their ranks, reportedly swelled by Haitian army deserters, were said to be advancing in two columns after apparently deciding against storming Cap Hai­ tien, 90 miles north of Port Au Prince. An unconfirmed report said another rebel force had landed at St. Marc, a port about 40 miles northwest of Port Au Prince and due southwest of Cap Haitien, Haiti's second largest city. Duvalier is known to have a strong post at Hinche, an inland city midway between Port Au Prince and Cap Haitien but separated from St. Marc by mountains. In Washington, the Council of the Organization of American States Tuesday ordered its special committee on the earlier Dominican-Haitian dispute to investigate Haiti's new charges that the invaders came from the Dominican Republic. The nations share the island of Hispaniola. Arturo Calventi, Dominican ambassador to the OAS, told the council that Haitian charges were unfounded. Paul Verna, the invaders* spokesman in Santo Domingo, said earlier an island off the Haitian coast was the staging site for the invasion.
