REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Havana, Cuba) Ceremony is held in old United States embassy; guests are greeted by Swiss ambassador and United States mission chief Lyle Lanae. Brief remarks are made by Cuban vice-min. of foreign relations Pelegrin Torras and by Lane. Outside diplomatic circles, little attention is paid to reopening of United States embassy; no word of it is incld. in today's edition of daily newspaper, "Gramma." 2 of toughest issues between 2 ntns. are United States demands for compensation for American assets seized by Castro and Cuba's demand for United States to end trade embargo that has hurt economy of Cuba.
