[Newspaper editor Gustavo MOURA - says won't accept Communist government. They only got 2% vote.] Front for Liberation of Azores (FLA) came into being. Communist party headquarters burned. Car thrown in harbor. Leader leaves for Lisbon; Pro-American attitude lets American planes land at Lajes Air Force Base and refuel. Azores' relations with Portugal will never be same.
