WASHINGTON (A', - Cuban
Premier Fidel Castro has im-
plied that he will complete the
withdrawal of all Cuban combat
forces from Angola in about a
year, a senior American official
said yesterday.
The official told reporters on
Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer's plane flying from Lon-
don to Washington that the im-
plication was drawn from a let-
ter sent by Castro to Swedish
Prime Minister Olaf Palme.
KISSINGER had been told of
the letter when he was in Stock-
holm earlier this week, but he
did not read the text itself until
the Swedish leader cabled it to
him in London.
The senior American official
said a reading of the letter
shows that Castro planned to

increase the withdrawal from
the originally announced 200 a
week. However, the official did
not say what the new level
would be, nor when it would go
into effect.
Cuba presently has between
13,000 and 15,000 troops in An-
gola, where they fought for the
Marxist government recently es-
tablished.-
WHEN THE Castro letter was
first disclosed earlier this week,
the Cuban leader was quoted as
saying the withdrawal had al-
ready begun.
The official said yesterday
there already are some indica-
tions that the troop pullout has
started.
However, he said, the Central
Intelligence Agency would need
at least a week to establish that

fact and several more weeks to-
confirm that a meaningful with-
drawal is underway.
CASTRO SENT the letter to
Palme on May 21 in response
to an article by the Swedish
leader criticizing Cuba for its
intervention in the former Afri-
can Portuguese colony.
Castro, in explaining his deci-
sion, said he did not want to
carry on a crusade.
In addition, he pledged in the
letter not to send troops else-
where in Africa or in other
Latin American nations.
According to accounts of offi-
cials who have seen the mes-
sage, Cuba will reduce its forces
to about 5,000 troops by the end
of 1976. The rest will be with-
drawn over the following six
months.

where they had been hiding.
Federal authorities said one
of the three, Corsican - born
Francois Chiappe, has links to
the legendary "French Con-
nection" pipeline through which
narcotics flow from Europe to
the United States via South
America.
CHIAPPE, 16, is under a
death sentence in France for
the murders of two drug pro-
curers.
"These have been for years
among the most important and
most sought after criminal nar-
cotics organizers in the world,"
said Peter Bensinger, adminis-
trator of the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA) in Wash-
ington.
Chiappe. with Miguel Russ,
41, an Italian, and Yolanda
"Chola" Sarmiento, 45, a Chi-

government. They were flown
to New York on a non-stop DCI
flight chartered for the purpose
by the DEA.
AT ARRAIGNMENT
in Brooklyn, U. S. District
Court Judge Jacob Mishler or-
dered Chiappe and Russo held
in lieu of $2.5-million bail each
for a hearing June 4. Sarmiento
was to be arraigned later.
Officials went to consider-
able pains to insure secrecy.
Even city police were not in-
formed of the trio's arrival.
Authorities said Chiappe was
a primary financier of a heroin
operation in which Russo was
said to have supervised the
movement of the dope down
from Europe to South Atnerica
to the United States by using
a variety of couriers.
SARMIENTO was described
as a chief New York distribu-
tor in a parallel operation,
working from 1968 to 1973 out of
a Brooklyn apartment across
the street from he federal
courthouse where she appear-
ed with the others for arraign-
ment. She jumped bail of
$100,000 in 1971 and fled to Ar-
gentina.
"The government of Argen-
tina is to be commended most
highly for its cooperation in
helping to make these arrests
possible," said Bensinger in a
statement. "We ar e deeply
grateful."

MARCEL CARNE'S 1945
CHILDREN OF PARADISE
MLB 3-7:30 ony
while the Gestapo hunted for some of the filmmakers, Carne
made this film about art, life, and the theatre in the Paris of
Balzac. It is a monumental film of incredible richness-comic.
tragic, philosophic-filled with strong subtle characterizations
and at least live kinds of theatrical performances. A kaleido-
scope, the fim shilts from the tile o the theatre to the rea-
tionship between art and life, to the problems of love. Pauline
Kae calis it, "a film-poem on the nature and varieties o love-
sacred and profane, serish and possessive." Written by Jacques
Prevert. Jean-Louis Barralt, Arletty, Pierre Renoir. French, Eng-
iiah subtitles.
