Cuba Grows Skeptical
About Invasion Threat
Associated Press Staff Writer
HAVANA, Jan. 14. Cuba’s Islands-wide Invasion alert
went into its third week today with public enthusiasm visibly
dwindling and a dash of skepticism in even the highest circles.
Prime Minister Fidel Castro extended the alert another
two days—to January 20—in a television address last night.
But even Mr. Castro switched his major attention from inva-
sion warnings to a careful sug
gestion of a reconciliation with
Washington after John F. Ken
nedy is inaugurated as presi
dent on the day the invasion
alert expires.
Mr. Castro had been expected
to claim that Cuba’s new mili
tary might had frightened off
the Invaders he predicted were •
ooming before President Eisen
hower leaves office. But he did
not make this boast, as he has
In past invasion scares.
The bearded prime minister
hinted he might use Guanta
namo naval base, from which:
he has promised to oust the’
United States by legal means,
M a lever to bargain for better
illations with the United States
aider a new administration.
* Guantanamo Remains
’•‘We have no points of fric
lon with the incoming govern
ment,” Mr. Castro declared,
■since all industries, all mines
md all banks are ours (na- ,
tonalized). 1
.“The only problem is Guan- 1
anamo and we are in no hurry ‘
(bout that base. It’s their head
tthe. because after breaking ;
Nations (with Cuba) the posi
fcn of the United States beforfe '
rorld opinion is untenable as
Ogards the base.” _» i
’About 30,000 persons tamed'
At to hear Mr. Castro at the
Victory rally.” This was a small
gowd, considering the week
pent by the government frying
o whip up enthusiasm for the
bass meeting in front or the
residential palace.
'Two questions now are heard
sore and more frequently
round Havana:
;Do Fidel Castro and hia col
iagues really believe an tnva
ton is coming and did they ever
ttleve it?
;if not, why the huge military
skepticism got a
cost last week end when Er
testo Guevara, leftwing presi
tent of the National Bank,
eiticized the general hysteria

ers in the night. (Cuban anti-
r craft gunners shot down one
their own planes during the
avasion alert.)

Ines are a little exaggerated.”

Some Cubans took Maj. Gue

Secret Reports Credited

sources say much of the gov
ernment’s chatter about an in
vasion is based on secret re
ports from agents of the Castro
' intelligence service throughout
■ the western hemisphere.
Although no secret has been
made of the counter-revolution
ary preparations in Florida, an
, air of mystery has shrouded
military activities in Guate
. mala. This has evoked re
pealed charges by the Cuban
, press and government that an

move eventually led President
Elsenhower to break relations
with Cuba.
Many predict the mass mo
bilization will eventually be
turned inward in a huge
crackdown on Mr. Castro’s
growing opposition. They point
out that internal liberties can
be suppressed more easily in
the face of an external threat.
Skeptics also maintain that
the invasion scare adds strongly
to the picture Castro has
painted of the Soviet Union as
the savior of an island sup
posedly threatened by aggres
sors in the United States. Fear
of communism in Cuba has
been the greatest cause of de
fections from Castro’s ranks,
and he needs to disguise the
dangers of the embrace of the
Russian bear.
It was in the midst of the
invasion alert that Maj. Gue
vara said the Soviet bloc is
aiding Cuba for “political" and
not economic reasons—an ad
mission that Cuba now is rid
ing on f.he Soviet Union’s in
ternational coattails.
Silent Piano Gincert
Leaves Audience Silent
LONDON, Jan. 14 (AP).—A
Hungarian pianist gave a con
cert tonight on a piano which
didn’t make any noise. The au
dience in stately Wigmore Hall
received his efforts with silence
nearly as profound.
The senowned acoustics of
the old hall were equal to the
occasion. There yere no echoes
or overtones only a few
Tomas Blod, who says he
lives in Venice, Italy, gave Lon
don its first major presentation
of the dolce piano, meaning a
piano which doesn’t make a
sound. He had to use a bor
rowed piano. His own instru
ment, he said, had been nfis
placed by British railways be
tween Folkestone and London.
British railways couldn’t figure
out how its employes eould lose
a concert piano on such a short
stretch of track. Wigmore Han
provided a piano with the ham
mers tied flown.
Mr. Blod also said he was
pretty mad at the railroad for
losing his out-sized boxing
gloves. He uses those, he said,
to warm and protect his hands
in bed.
Mr. Blod was presented, by
a patron and some British ad
mirers, as “the surrealist of
music,” a sort of a Salvador
Dali of rhythm. He explained
that the idea was to watch
him, and to feel. A pretty girl
turned the sheets of music
when he got to the bottom of
a page.
He played with vigorous
gestures, his head bobbing
cadences, and sympathetic
"listeners” said they got the
feel that something was being
communicated to them. They
did not always agree as to
whether it was Mozart or Bach.
For one piece Mr. Blod was
assisted by violincello and oboe
tion of quietude.

Surgeon General Leroy Bur

The United States recently

Cuba, like a number of other
countries, has been exempt
from some United States quar
antine requirements for many
years, but Dr. Burney said such
exemptions can be maintained
only when there is close liai

Service and the health agency
of the exempted area.
Dr. Burnley said smallpox is
not known to exist in Cuba at

220 Anti-Red Cubans
Thank U. S. for Aid
A group of 220 anti-Castro
Cubans, mostly from Hew York,
denfohstrated here yesterday
and expressed thanks to Presi
dent Elsenhower for allocating
81 million to aid Cuban refu
gees in the United States.
A delegation of 14 was ad
mitted to the White House to
present a letter directed to Mr.
Eisenhower. It waa received by
Robert Merriam, presidential
While the delegation was at
the White House, the rest of
the group, carrying various
signs, paraded along H street
near Jackson place N.W.
The letter directed to Mr.
Eisenhower declared that in
addition to the material help
Cuban refugees have been
granted, the anti-Castro forces
have been encouraged because
the Castro regime has been
branded “by its proper name a
Communist regime.” The let
ter said, “No American will be
confused now by these fellow
travelers—Communists at
Want Understanding
"Material help, though, is
not all that we would like of
you,” the letter said. “We are
in need of your spiritual sup
port and of a clear understand
ing and real comprehension by
the American people of the ac
tual problem of Cuba.”
The letter also congratulated
Mr. Eisenhower on breaking
relations with Cuba.
After leaving the vicinity of
the White House, the group

documents he had placed be

falsity of Soviet accusations,
and he did not intend to reply
in detail.
He appealed to the Council
to let the 11-nation Asian-
African conciliation mission in
the Congo go ahead with its
attempts to reconcile political
rivalries, and to establish con
ditions that would permit
stabilization of the country.
Resists Subversion
Mario Cardozo, representa
tive of Congo President Joseph
Kasavubu, told the Council
that its main task was to halt
massive subversion in the
| Congo and prevent it from be
coming another Korea.”
He accused the Soviet Union
and certain other African
countries of pouring financial
and other aid into the Congo
in an attempt to put Mr. Lu
mumba back into power. Mr.
Cardozo arrived here from
Leopoldville today to address
the Council.
Mr. Cardoso was critical In
his remarks of India's Rajesh

tive in the Congo. But there
was no comment from Mr.
Hammarskjold on word from
Leopoldville that the Kasavubu
government had demanded Mr.
Dayal’s recall.
The vote came on the third
day of debate in the Council,

their hands. Some wore black

The name of Prime Minister
Fidel Castro on signs was
spelled with a "K.” Members of

The visitors came in four
from New York. After
