CUBAN, BAHAMIAN OFFICIALS DISCUSS WEEKEND RAID
Refugee arrested for hijacking

From UPI and AP
A Cuban refugee among the thousan-
ds streaming into Florida on the
"Freedom Flotilla" was arrested
yesterday and charged with hijacking a
U.S. jetliner and diverting it to Cuba
with 82 people aboard 11 years ago.
Meanwhile, the flow of refugees
reaching Key West slowed to a trickle
after -5,353 checked in Sunday, about
1,000 more than had arrived on any
previous day.
Officials said weather conditions in
the 90-mile stretch of the Straits of
Florida between the Cuban port of
Mariel and Key West were relatively
calm and they didn't know what caused
the slowdown.
IN NASSAU, Cuban diplomats
opened talks with Bahamian officials
yesterday to reach a "friendly and
honorable settlement" to the weekend
MiG air raid that sank the Bahamas
Defense Force ship Flamingo, killing
four crewmen.
The Bahamians, however, were not in
a conciliatory mood.
Prime Minister Lynden Pindling,
before departing London for Nassau,
was not mollified by Cuba's "sincere
regrets."
"THIS APPEARS to have been a
totally unprovoked attack and I shall
discuss with my colleagues whether to
take the incident to the Security Coun-
cil" of the United Nations, Pindling
said.
"Our bottom line is four lives and one
ship," said Bahamas External Affairs
Minister Paul Adderly. "Theirs is two
fishing boats and eight Cubans. I think

they want to lower the temperature a
bit."
TWO CUBAN MiG fighter jets buzzed
a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter yester-
day, circling within 50 feet of the rescue
craft as it searched for the four missing
Bahamian sailors, according to a
Guard spokesman.
The U.S. State Department was to
lodge a "strong protest" with the Cuban
Interest Section in Washington later
yesterday and would follow that with a
written protest today, said Guard Lt.

Norris Turner.
In Washington, State Department
spokesman David Nall said, "We are
making a strong protest" to the Cuban
government over the incident. He
referred further questions to the Coast
Guard.
The mood in Nassau immediately af-
ter the Cuban MiG rocket attack that
sank the 103-foot Flamingo was one of
shock. By yesterday, however, the
shock turned to outrage.
"They even fired on those guys when

they were in the water," said taxi
driver Theophus Taylor. "What kind of
hearts do they have? They knew exac-
tly what they were doing. That pirate
ship story was funny. What kind of
pirate ship has two Bahamian flags?"
The Cuban government's initial reac-
tion to the air raid, which they called "a
worrisome incident," was the fighter
pilots thought the two Cuban fishing
boats were being attacked by a pirate
ship.

(D-Ohio) and Rob Dole (R-Kan.), would
exempt bills to repeal the fee from a
restriction in the 1981 budget that
requires tax cut bills to be delayed until
Congress adopts firm spending ceilings
in September.
THE EXEMPTION would mean that
repeal legislation, if approved, could be
sent immediately to Carter and would
give Congress added time to override
an expected veto.
Last week, the House approved a
$611.8 billion balanced budget that
favors lower defense outlays and
milder social spending cuts than the
Senate package. Senate approval will
send the proposals to a conference to
work out differences.

vote expressing strong displeasure with
the fee and making it easier for
Congress to repeal Carter's authority to
impose it.
THE TWO VOTES raise fresh doubts
about whether the budget can be balan-
ced in the face of a worsening recession
and growing congressional sentiment
against the import fee.
Some economists believe the
recession could push unemployment as
high as 9 per cent and drive the 1981
budget as much as $40 billion into
deficit.
