06/12/61: Memo from Wallace A. Hopwade (Through: Wesley B. Enzel) to Chief of Base, JMWAVE: "1. AMTIKI-1 (Manuel F. Goudie) advised that AMBUD-1's (Jose Miro Cardona) secretary phoned him advising the following: a. Roberto de Cardenas called at her office and advised that AMTIKI-1 refused to pay him; b. That if de Cardenas didn't get his pay he would quit, go to the papers, and tell all that he knows. He stated that he knows a lot of things, and c. That AMTIKI-1 is hiding - moved his office - and must be guilty of something. 2. AMTIKI-1 has moved his office, the old lease expired, and will send each recruit a note advising telephone number and address. 3. Late on 9 June 1961, Enzel (Fravel S. Brown) was able to contact de Cardenas who stated that he did phone AMBUD-1's secretary but made no threats. 4. De Cardenas is not on the AMIRON (Frente Revolucionario Democratico - FRD) rolls. All expenses of the 27th Avenue office including those salaries were handled by the C.O. On 19 April 1961 it was decided that AMTIKI-1 would pick up the 27th Avenue expenses. As a result AMTIKI-1 reimburses de Cardenas only after Enzel approves the vouchers. AMTIKI-1 had no unpaid vouchers as of 8 June 1961."
07/07/61: Cable from JMWAVE to Director: "1. During afternoon of 2 July AMTIKI-1 (Manuel F. Goudie) was advised by Hopwade that KUBARK (CIA) did not intend to pay dependent payments after July. A draft of an unsigned notice, advising recruits that payments were to be terminated and that they should contact Cuban Refugee Center, was given AMTIKI-1. He was not to release this notice until final WAVE approval. It was the C O intention that this notice would not be shown to anyone. Through a misunderstanding AMTIKI-1 translated the notice. He also gave a copy of the notice to AMBUD-1's (Jose Miro Cardona) secretary for delivery to AMBUD-1..."

07/15/61: Cable from JMWAVE to Director: "1. Hopwade (using name Joseph Byerly) contacted Mr. Ralph Schneeloch by phone on 12 July and received the following information regarding Garcia personnel: A. Garcia received a cashier check 10 July which apparently was to cover June dependency payments. B. Dependents of seventeen killed, missing, and prisoners have engaged Louis Schneiderman, a friend of Schneeloch, as attorney who may bring suit against Garcia if their dependent payments cancelled...2. Schneeloch is a former CDR presently connected with Interamerican Equipment Company who apparently spent considerable time in Cuba. He is a friend of Blanco (no other name given), and Sanchez Mosquera. He feels that all of the Cubans connected with the Garcia enterprise have gotten a bad deal and plans to help them all that he can. He knows he is dealing with KUBARK (CIA). He feels that KUBARK should treat these people better or else be prepared to receive very bad publicity. This statement was not made as a threat..."
