Report: Guevara’s Power Reduced in Cuba

Oct. 28, 1961 - Indications are mounting that Maj. Ernesto “Che” Guevara, until recently the manager of Cuba’s economy, has been removed from this commanding post and replaced by a planning board composed of old-line Cuban Communists. The suspected reasons for this range from the fact that the Cuban economy has suffered a tremendous deterioration under Maj. Guevara’s stewardship to his ideological kindship with the Communist Chinese line. Since his days in the Sierra Maestra with Castro, the Argentine-born major has expressed admiration for Mao Tse-Tung, chairman of the Chinese Communist party, and the Chinese revolutionary methods. In recent weeks, there has been an accelerated process of identification of the Cuban leadership with Soviet Communism.
