#24769

DATE:        May 4, 1960

TO:             THOMAS J. KELLY, Metropolitan Sheriff

FROM:       LT. FRANK KAPPEL, Supervisor, Criminal Intelligence

SUBJECT: CLUB 26TH OF JULY  - JOSEPH PAULA


On April 28, 1960 Agent A.L. TARABOCHIA was notified by Lieutenant SOX, Port Authority District, that the 26th of July Club of Miami had chartered two flights for an excursion of its members to Havana, Cuba.

The flights were to depart at 6:15 PM and 10:00 PM on April 29, 1960 and it was anticipated that about one hundred (100) persons would fly to Havana.

The excursion was planned by the Club in connection with a mass meeting ordered by the pro-Communist Cuban Federation of Labor to celebrate the 1st of May.

Just prior to departure time the writer was notified by Immigration authorities that they had received a phone call by an unknown person who stated that some of the passengers had hand-grenades hidden in their baggage.

A search of the baggage and the persons boarding the aircraft revealed nothing to substantiate the allegation.

The first flight left at 7:40 PM and the second at about 11:50 PM.

The departure were covered by Lieutenant KAPPEL, Agent CLODE and this writer.

No incidents occurred.
