RENE VALDES stated on June 22, 1963, that he had been visited at his residence by two local members of the Second National Front of Escambray (SNFE) - Alpha 66. These men said it was known by them that inquiries had been made about VALDES in the past, supposedly because he was a communist. VALDES said he visited Miami in December, 1962 and met ANTONIO VECIANA, leader of A-66. VECIANA appointed VALDES as General Delegate of A-66 in Los Angeles, and the le~ter of appointment bore no mention of SNFE. VALDES developed an organization of 17 members just before the meeting of May 19, 1963, at which VECIANA 1-1as to speak. Instead, SARGEN came. VALDES had read of the merge r of SNFE and A-66, and added the name of SNFE to the window of the headquarters. SARGEN criticized VALDES for placing A-66 in the forefront and relegating SNFE to a minor role, and said A-66 was only a "front" for the SNFE. VALDES then wrote to VECIANA and asked him if A-66 existed or was a front for the organization, and received a reply from VECIANA saying it was desired that VALDES relinquish his position as General Delegate in favor of MANOLO MESA. VALDES learned from TIRSO DEL JUNCO that VECIANA had split with almost the entire membership of A-66 and had gone over to SNFE, taking the name A-66 with him. In September, 1963 , SARGEN, as Organizational Secretary of Second National Front of Escambray (SNFE) sent a letter to ALFREDO RONDON at the Los Angeles headquarters of SNFE, A-66 and the Movimiento Revolucionario del Pueblo (MRP). This le tter consisted of instructions~~ how to conduct training of men for a specialized reserve brigade in various types of guerrilla warfare. ELOY GUTIERREZ MENOYO came to Los Angeles October 11, 1963, and appeared at a public meeting of the Los Angeles delegation o~ A-66. He announced that the organization lY.ould be in Cuba in less than six months. ST
