11/14/61: Cable from JMWAVE to Director (Orig: Bertrand R. Jobes): Sluglines NO NIACT: JMZIP/PM: "1. JMWAVE has received several reports from reliable local sources that confirm derogatory information regarding Jorge Nobregas. 2. In August WAVE reps asked Leslie Nobregas, captain of Susan Ann to get rid of his brother, Jorge, due to the many reports of his homosexual tendencies. Leslie refused to do this. 3. Reasons listed below now make it evident that JMWAVE must completely sever all operational relationship with the Nobregas brothers and two of Jorge's special friends who are crewmen on Susan Ann. (A) On 1 November entire crew mutinied due to unfair treatment and high-handed favoritism shown toward Jorge clique. (B) Entire crew lacks confidence in Leslie's fortitude and fear a recurrence of proven cases when he has left men on the beach. (C) Crew confirms that he has more than once been forced to accomplish his mission because other crewmen held a pistol to his back. (D) The Goudie's say that they will not operate with us if the Nobregas group remains. (E) Crew men on other boats who know the actual situation resent our support of the Nobregas faction. 4. JMWAVE therefore proposes to tell Leslie Nobregas that we have no further need for his services, but are prepared to purchase his boat. 5. It is believed that he paid $15,000 for Susan Ann and would probably agree to sell at this figure since she would be useless to him without our support. 6. A qualified captain is available and the majority of the crew will no doubt remain, being glad to be rid of the Nobregas group. 7. Request authority to purchase for this amount. Advise ASAP."
