104-10226-10357: DISPATCH-OPERATIONAL PHYSICAL ATTACK ON UR PREMISES

04/27/64: Memorandum for the record from Henry P. Rebholtz: Subject: UR internal Dissension: Interview with Eduardo Sotolongo Medina: Pages 3-4: ..."An example of this, Subject said that at a recent executive meeting Cavada announced that Cabeza was on his way out, and then turning to Carlos Theye, 'Your contact (meaning 'Bill Cook') is in trouble.' Then at a subsequent meeting Cavada told the assemblage that Cabeza's ousting had been accomplished smoothly because Bill Cook was in Washington at the time. Feigning ignorance as to what was meant, the undersigned asked Subject what was implied, and Subject answered that the only thing anyone could make out it was that Cabeza had been personally sponsored in the UR by Bill Cook...7. Before leaving, Subject stated that he felt that his embroilment in the current difficulties resulted from an attempt by Seiglie and Cavada to undermine his position because of his proposal for dissolving the current executive committee. He said that Seiglie had told all of the members that Subject was the sole reason that the UR's paramilitary effort had failed. Seiglie said that this had been told to him by 'Chuck' and had been confirmed by 'Bill Cook.' The undersigned assured Subject that this was not true, and opined that Seiglie's statement was at least an exaggeration probably based on a misunderstanding. The undersigned promised to look into it."
