the correspondent of The Associated
Press: "While the situation here ha
ben improved and simplified by the
declaration of General Gomez that he

nation of Cuba, the advantage thus
gained should be followed up by the
American authoi it.es. The entire polio

'Cubans themselves. The real work is,
in fact, now in the hands of Cuban sol
diers, and law and orer are well main
tained. There should not be a moment's
delay in the organization and equip

At least, that is my opinion."

The Cuban leaders seem uncertain for
the moment whether to support General
Gomez or criticise him. Public opinion
had been wrought up to demand ar.d ex

Among the Cuban leaders who have

A quieting down of speculative inter
