although the activities of the FRD had been dissolved in

Free Cuba" would be continued under his guidance and also
under the sponsorship of the Revolutionary Council. He
_explained that the FRD at Miami had merged into the
Revolutionary Council.
An article in the New Orleans Times-Picayune,
a daily newspaper, on 12/2/61, carried a story captioned
"Crusade Begins to Free Cuba". This article stated that
a two month crusade to free Cuba had been started at the
beginning of December, 1961 and would continue until the
end of January, 1962, The article said that the founders
claimed that the purpose of this crusade was to raise
money to educate New Or1eaneans of the danger that Communist
orientated Cuba presents to the U .· S. According to the
article the crusade to free Cuba had the support of the
Mayor of the City of New Orleans and that a proclamation
bad been issued by Mayor VICTOR H, SCHIRO of New Orleans
on 12/l/61, backing this crusade. The article further
reported that local prominent citizens of the New Orleans
area had been chosen to direct the crusade and the campaign
chairman was W. A. MON'TELEONE, a hotel executive.

had returned to the U. S. on l/12/61 from Cuba and resided
i.n New York City until August, 1961, when he came to New
Orleans. DAVIS related that sometime. early in 1963 he had
made friends with persons in the lumber business in Guatemala
and had formed with them the Guatemala Lumber and Mineral
Corp. which was a Louisiana corporation which had a contract
with the Guatemalan Government to take mahogany out of
Guatemala.
According to DAVIS, some nineteen men were sent
by BATISTA from Miami to New Orleans in response to DAVIS's
request. Unfortunately, these men, for some reason or
another, came to New Orleans with the idea that they were
going to be trained in New Orleans for a military operation
and sent to Guatemala for additional training. DAVIS

purpose of their travel to New Orleans they were dis-
appointed and some were angry with him.
DAVIS stated that the house where these Cubans
were staying and being trained in connection with their
lumber cutting work in Guatemala was located in St. Tammany
Parish in Lacombe, La. about a mile from Highway 190 West
on a secondary road.
DAVIS related that during the last dnys of
July, 1963, the FBI had seized some dynamite and other
explosives stored in · a Lacombe residence which was reported
to be for use against Cuba. DAVIS said this action dis-
turbed these Cuban·· refugees and was probably partially
responsible for their decision to return to Miami.
