One speculation is that Moscow wants to strengthen the Communist hold on Cuba by sending in large numbers of "technicians" who will operate in key positions. to return to work. And, added James Haygood, business manager of Local 558 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, "I think maybe a few of them might go back today." U.S. Dist. Judge Clarence W. Allgood gave union leaders a stern lecture Wednesday, telling them to get their men back on the job. The union president, Gordon Freeman, issued a back-to- work order earlier in the day. Jerome Cooper, lawyer for the union, said after Allgood's order: "We've told them they are free to go to work. Now we will tell them in another way."

A reliable source said an East Berlin official had told Communist reporters that his government does not intend to interfere with Western military traffic—but as the same time insisted that Western Army sedans have no legal basis for going into East Berlin. During the night, U.S. Army cars made Unopposed excursions into East Berlin to test whether Moscow's abolition of the Soviet commandant's office would be followed by efforts to limit Western movements in the Communist part of this divided city. Although East German guards made no attempt to interfere with the American vehicles, U.S. authorities said it was still too early to conclude that harassing measures were not in the offing. One U;S. Army vehicle crossed from West Berlin into the Communist sector just before midnight and returned without difficulty through Checkpoint Charlie, entry point through the Berlin Wall for military personnel. Two more U.S. Army cars followed without meeting any delays. The Russians announced Wednesday they were doing away with the office of city commandant and transferring his duties "temporarily" to Gen. Ivan Yaku- bovsky, the Soviet commander for East Germany, who has headquarters at Potsdam, just west of Berlin.
