50 years ago:

In reprisal for the Cuban fishing boats held in Key West the Cuban Government ordered the fresh water supply to the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay cutoff.

Criminal Court Judge Thomas Caro released seven of the 36 Cuban fishermen held because they were under the age of 17.

Fausto's Food Palace, Carl and Ana Weekley owners, was located at 522 Fleming Street.

The Boy Scouts reported that there were 661 boys enrolled in the 26 units in the Monroe County Distrist.

A group of Cuban exiled hung Fidel Castro in effigy in sight of the Cuban fishing boats being held on the Coast Guard Station.
