THE SUNDAY STAR
Washington, D. C., October 21, 1962
Red Freighter
Captain Knew
Blockade Rule
The Russian - chartered
freighter Marucla was fully
prepared to observe the United
States quarantine of Cuba, de
tails of the boarding and search
released yesterday by the Pen
tagon indicate.
The ship’s captain was fa
miliar with the rules laid down
by the President’s proclama
tion Tuesday. He was follow
ing the rules carefully.
The Pentagon anouncement
also indicated that American
intelligence could have exam
ined the ship closely three
weeks ago when it passed,
through the Kiel Canal in West
Germany on its way to Cuba, j
The Pentagon gave this de
scription of the action on board
the Marucla, which was stopped
yesterday morning by two
American destroyers:
“The boarding officer (Lt.'
Comdr. K. C. Reynolds, execu
tive officer of the USS Joseph
P. Kennedy, jr.) introduced
himself, announced the pur
pose of his visit, and requested
to examine the ship’s records.
“The Master’s cabin was
utilized for records examina
tion. The Master was familiar
with the proclamation of the
President of the United States
announcing the quarantine of
Cuba and the restriction on
prohibited items.
Copy of Warning Aboard
“The copy of Navoceano
Washington Official Warning
number 30 advising of Quaran
tine and the advisability of us
ing Mona Passage rather than
Windward Passage was aboard.
“Upon completion of the rec
ords examination, the boarding
officer proceeded with an ap
propriate search in company
with the Master Chief Mate
and Radio Officer. During the
search, the conversation was
formal and was concerned I
primarily with the examinationl
of deck loaded trucks and the !
inspection of one hold which
was opened at the request of
the boarding officer.
“The Master reported that
this was the first voyage of his
vessel to Cuba. He departed
Riga (a Russian Baltic port)
on October 3, transited the
Kiel Canal (in West Germany d
then proceeded en route to
Cuba.
“The Master. Chief Mate and
Radio Operator spoke fluent
English.
Boarding Party Unarmed
“The first contact between
ships was flashing light with
good response and paralleled by
international flag hoist 'Oscar
November.' This means: ‘You
should heave to. Stop at once.’
“The boarding party was not
armed. This was not considered
necessary, particularly since
they were in view of both the
Kennedy and the Pierce. The
uniform for all members of the
boarding party was service
dress white.
“The Marucla’s captain is |
Georgios Condorrigas, national
ity Greek. The total crew
numbered 31—30 Greek, one’
Italian.”
Members of the boarding
party, the Pentagon reported
today, were Lt. Comdr. Reyn
olds; Lt. Comdr. D. G. Osborne,
executive officer of the de
stroyer Pierce; Ensign E. A.
Mass, damage control assistant.
USS Kennedy; Ensign P. W.|
Sanger, communications officer.'
USS Kennedy, and Signalman,
2/c J. P. Ruppenthal, USS
Kennedy.
