September 9, 1933 CUBAN JUNTA OF 5 RESIGNS Sergeant Heads Army Havana, Sept. 8 -- In a move to prevent armed intervention by United States naval forces now in Cuban waters, the revolutionary junta of five men who have served as a de facto government of this distracted island since Tuesday resigned today and turned their attention to forming a coalition cabinet. The dubious authority which they have exercised since the recent coup d'etat was placed in the hands of Fulgencio Batista, army sergeant and leader of the revoly, who was elevated to the rank of colonel in the establishment of a virtual military dictatorship. A state of anarchy and chaos impends. Regular officers of the Cuban army, most of whom are West Point graduates, stated flatly however that they would refuse to serve under the leadership of the broad-shouldered and fiery radical sergeant. Two hundred officers, after a stormy meeting tonight, agreed unanimously to support the De Cespedes government, charging that the present Batista regime is communistic in nature.
