[29]    Oswald had worked for Tujague's import-export business in 1956; told his mother he was going to return to work at Tujague's right before he defected in 1959; listed himself as a shipping export agent on his passport in 1959; and named Tujague as a reference with the proper address when he looked for work in 1963:  See CIA document, "Chronology of Oswald in the USSR", Oswald 201 File, Vol 38B/ NARA Record Number: 1993.06.10.15:01:04:030000. Also see copy of 1959 passport, HSCA volume 4, p. 282.  Also see Tujague's FBI interview, 11/25/63, CD 75, p. 4.  Also see Report of SA William Newbrough that provides Tujague's proper address, 11/29/63, Oswald 201 File, Vol 3, CD75, Part 1. https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?mode=searchResult&absPageId=994064

[32]   Oswald started off in May by leaving FPCC fliers at the Tulane Library, a good way to flush out pro-Castro types that might try to infiltrate anti-communist groups:  FBI Interview with Hugh Murray, 11/26/63.    Warren Commission Document 75, p. 699. 

[33]   Bill Harvey - who worked both the wiretapping side and the Cuban beat for  the CIA during 1962 - was tipped off on 10/1/62 that Celso Hernandez might be a communist:  For the 1962 Oswald-Hernandez arrest, see memo from investigator John Volz to DA Jim Garrison, 3/1/67, pp. 6-7, (follow-up at pp. 16-18) RIF# 180-10085-10407. http://digitalcollections.baylor.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/po-arm/id/41827/rec/3 

On Oct 1, 1962, Bill Harvey is tipped that recent exile Ernesto Arizzurieta says that Celso Hernandez is a dyed-in-the-wool communist, with a son studying in the USSR.  The Celso he knew was a bus driver with Allied Bus.

On Oct 5, 62, the tip is passed by the CIA to the FBI -is this an effort  to smoke out double agents and/or create new stories?
https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=144379&relPageId=9 (and following two pages)

10/23/63, from New york, brother Ernesto said that Celso Macario was the same one he knew in cuba, who worked for Allied Bus.  
https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=144388&relPageId=3

11/4/63 memo from Miami, sister Sara says she was the one who worked at allied bus, she said the allied bus Celso was Celso S, not Celso M.
https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=144388&relPageId=2 (and following page)  Felipe Alonso also said they were two different men.  https://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=144388&relPageId=4

[34]   Oswald wrote the Fair Play for Cuba Committee on August 1, and told them that he had got into a brawl with the "gusanos" -- Spanish for worms, and the left's favorite epithet for the Cuban exiles:   Commission Document 107 - FBI Sup. Invest., 1/13/64 , pp. 77-78.    

[35]    Oswald visited Bringuier's clothing store and introducing himself as an ex-Marine prepared to fight against Castro and that he could train guerillas:  11/27/63 FBI SA John T. Reynolds interview of Carlos Bringuier, Oswald 201 File, Vol 3 , Part 6, p. 39.

Bringuier and two friends saw Oswald leafleting for the FPCC and realized that he was a Red Marine and no friend of theirs:  11/25/63 FBI SA Regis Kennedy interview with Carlos Bringuier, Oswald 201 File, Vol 3, Part 6, p. 29. 

[36]   Besides Oswald, those arrested were DRE Bringuier, head of the New Orleans DRE; Miguel Cruz, and Celso Macario Hernandez, the CIA asset arrested by Officer Charles Noto with someone calling himself "Lee Oswald" in 1962:    Jim DiEugenio, The Assassinations, p. 115. Also see endnote 32, above.

[37]   FBI photographers were filming across the street.  CIA agent William Gaudet watched Oswald hand out the literature from his office.    FBI informant Orest Pena watched.  HSCA interview of Orestes Pena, 1/20/78, National Archives 180-10097-10491; also see John Armstrong, Harvey and Lee, p. 575.
