Castro's predilection for the Chinese side is also evident in the quantities of Peiping's propaganda circulating within his developing political machine, the United Party of the Socialist Revolution (PURS). (Castro confided that the "real" lead- ers f the PURS are men whose personal loyalty he is confident about. The "conventional" Cuban Communists, he declared, are more responsive to Mo cow than to himself, and have no power in the party. In speaking of Panama, Castro stated that the tempo of revolutionary action there must be intensi- fied. He urged that Panamanians who have received training in Cuba be directed to launch a campaign of sabotage similar to that underway in Venezuela. He said that while he cannot risk sending arms directly to Panama, he would be willing to supply "any uan- tity" of US dollars necessary for buying arms (Quiescent for many years, Communist activity in PC= has recently increased somewhat, appar- ently because it is receiving more sophisticated di- rection than formerly.

The object of the campaign is to create as much confusion as possible in the hope that this would goad the military to action against Betancourt) The US Embassy in Caracas indicates that al- thou h rumors of military coup plotting are rife, the unrest among the officer corps lacks effective leadership, and there is no consensus about what should be done. Many officers fear, however, that if the election were held, it would produce a weak government supported only by a bare plurality, which would. bring fresh gains to the Communists and their extremist allies. 12 Sept 63 DAILY BRIEF 9 A ed For release 2003/05/16 : CIA-RDP79T00975 007200310001-7 ' 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/05/16 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07200310001-7 Approved For Release 2003/05/16 : CIA-RDP79T00975AO07200310001-7 ~oved For elease 2003/05/16.

The present atmosphere of tension on South Korean campuses is such that further disturbances may occur if a "spark" is applied. The organizers are aware that ro overnment students may capture the demonstration. Jordan-Egypt: King Husayn is continuing his ef- forts to arrange a rapprochement with Nasir. A pro- UAR newspaper editor from Jerusalem has been sent to Cairo to assure Nasir that Husayn sincerely wants to improve relations. The King apparently hopes that Nasir now will be more receptive than he has been. Both leaders distrust the Baathists in Syria and Iraq and Jordan recently demonstrated "nonalignment" b t lis in relations with the USSR. j 12 Sept 63 DAILY BRIEF 10 j ~rpvea rvr r~eiease cuu~ivai i o : ~.w-r~ur i i uu~ i MUU 1 ZUU) 1 UVU 1-i 'Alproved For - 7200310001-7 j j j Chile-France: An official of the Chilean Foreign Office has informed the US charge that contrary to an earlier Chilean press report, Chile is not break- ing commercial relations with France.
