    Background: Former rebels of Castro now in the national police are losing their beards - hallmark of the rebels who tottered Dictator Batista from power.

    The order: Off with those unkempt beards by Police Chief Efigenio Almejeiras is to bring uniformity to the force. The ex-rebels must have their regulation haircuts too. Some thousand beards and long hairs are now coming off at the barbers.

    Police chief Almejeiras took up a razor May 6 to lead the barbers.
