104-10169-10228: HAND WRITTEN NOTE SUBJECT TOTA

Undated CIA document: Subject: Tota: "1. Attached is a list of 7 women employed in the (REDACTION)WEB complex. There may be others not identified to HQs. 2. The recently employed ones are: Berta Mur Varela - Dec 64. Carmen Rita (Unintelligible) Rodriguez - Oct 64. Maria del Carmen Perez Rodriguez - Aug 64. 3. Mrs. Rodriguez lives with her husband according to the PRQI, so we can eliminate her if we assume that Espinosa's info is based on something near the truth. 4. Perez Gonzalez came through an LCFLUTTER clean in Sept 64. If (we) are assume the LCFLUTTER means anything, we can eliminate Perez. 5. The others were hired on the dates shown after these names: Teresa Vasquez Arias de Vincente - Oct 63. Maria Teresa Rodriguez (Unintelligible) - March 62. Maria Juana Asuncion Comella Anglada - Jan 63. Maria de Carmen Farinas Martin - Feb 63. 6. Thus, if we regard those hired in 1962 and 63 as most recent, if we eliminate the recent one who lives with her spouse (Rodriguez) as not able to be set up in an apartment; and if we accept the LCFLUTTER on Perez as proving she doesn't work for Cuban I.S., we have only Berta Mur as our possibly suspect Tota."
