WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter ordered an end yesterday to an
illegal seaborne influx of Cuban
refugees but offered to move Cubans
here by plane and large ships if
President Castro permits screening of
refugees on Cuban soil.
The proposal, which Carter announ-
ced personally, also would allow the
U.S. government to determine the
number of Cubans who would be per-
mitted to seek asylum here during the
next 12 months.
CARTER SAID he did not know
whether Cuban Premier Fidel Castro
would go along with the plan but noted
the Cuban leader "has so far refused to
cooperate with us."
Meanwhile, the State Department
said last night that 17 American'
diplomats and dependents, stationed in
Havana, were being flown to Miami

because of a "virulent and continuing
anti-American campaign" in Cuba.
The diplomats are assigned to the
U.S. Interests Section in Havana.
"It is simply prudent that the U.S.
mission in Cuba be reduced tem-
porarily to the minimum number of
people," said David Nail, a State
Department spokesman.
NALL SAID a chartered Eastern
Airlines Boeing-727 was leaving Miami
for Havana last night and would return
the Americans to the Florida city where
they are expected to remain until a
possible return to the island nation.
Nall also noted that Castro has called
for a nationwide anti-American demon-
stration on Saturday. Part of the
demonstrators' route in Havana is ex-
pected to pass in front of the waterfront
U.S. Mission, he said.
