Prince Sihanouk,
Bowles Discuss
Sanctuary Issue

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia ()-
Cambodian officials reported yes-
terday that the first meeting of
U.S. Ambassador Chester Bowles
and Prince Norodom Sihanouk
was "frank and cordial" but they
"disclosed few details of the hour
long conversation.
Bowles arrived in Phnom Penh
Monday on a mission for Presi-
dent Johnson to discuss the use
of neutral Cambodia as a sanctu-
ary by Communnist troops fight-
ing in Vietnam. There was a pos-
4sibility the talks would range over
the broader issues of Vietnam
peace talks.
U. S. Pursuit
In Cambodia
Democratic Leader Mike Mans-
*field said yesterday conversations
with President Johnson have
convinced him the United States
will not permit the pursuit of
Communist forces from South
Vietnam into neutral Cambodia.
"It would be tragedy com-
ounded on tragedy," the Mon-
ana senator said in an interview.
"I commend the President for his
unyielding attitude in that re-
'Very Strong Pressures'
"I think I have a pretty fair
idea of the President's feeling on
Cambodia," Mansfield said. "We
have discussed it from time to,
Mansfield, back at the Capitol
after a between sessions vacation,
said he believes the President
"has been subject to very strong
pressures" to authorize troop
*bssings into Cambodia and per-
haps into North Vietnam.
Boost Commitment
Mansfield said a policy of pur-
suing Communist forces into
Cambodia would force the United
States to boost its Vietnam troop
commitment to 700,000 or 750,000
"It would make almost certain
an extension of the war, making
it open ended," he said. Mansfield
added that such a step could
lead Sihanouk to ask for aid
from the Soviet Union or Com-
nunist China to enforce his pro-
claimed neutrality.
"The real concern is that it
would bring about a lateral ex-
tension of the war," Mansfield
said. "When you take the first
inch you don't know when you're
going to take the next foot or the
;,text yard."
Seal Border
Mansfield said Sihanouk is an
intelligent and capable leader,
determined to preserve his na-
tion's neutrality and supported by
his people.
He said Sihanouk wants neither
#de in the Vietnam war to vio-
late his border. Mansfield 6aid
any steps taken to seal the border
to fleeing Communists would have
to come through the International
Control Commission, created by
1954 agreements which ended
French rule of Indochina. India,
where Bowles serves as U.S. am-
bassador, is chairman of that
three nation commission.

An informed source said Bowles
probably would confer with Siha-
nouk again today and leave
Phnom Penh tomorrow.
Cambodian officials said "useful
points of view were exchanged."
Sihanouk said before the meet-
ing that he cannot permit Ameri-
can troops to pursue Viet Cong
and North Vietnamese forces into
Bowles, U.S. ambassador to In-
dia, was sent to Cambodia after
Sihanouk said he would welcome
an American envoy to discuss
Communist use of Cambodian bor-
der areas.
Others attending the Bowles
Sihanouk conference were Penn
Nouth, Sihanouk's private coun-
selor; Premier Son Sann; Gen.
Duong Sam 01, the defense min-
ister, and Australian Ambassador
Sinclair Deschamps, who has rep-
resented American diplomatic in-
interests in Phnom Penh since Si-
hanouk broke relations with the
United States in 1965.
Bowles and the premier met
for an hour prior to the con-
ference with Sihanouk.
The Cambodian Foreign Office
announced it is favorable to an
American offer of two helicopters
for use by the International Con-
trol Commission set up by the 1954
Geneva conference to supervise
the operation of agreements end-
ing French rule in Indochina.
But a Cambodian note to the
Australian Embassy said the final
decision on the U.S. offer must be
made by the commission as well as
by the foreign ministers of Britain
and the Soviet Union-cochair-
men of the Geneva conference.

Research To Use
Calves' Hearts
WASHINGTON (P-A research
project aimed at preconditioning
the hearts of unborn calves for
ultimate transplanting into hu-
man beings was disclosed yeser-
day by Dr. Charles A. Hufnagel,
inventor of the first artificial
heart valve.
The project could lead to es-
tablishment of a living heart
bank-and eliminate the need to
delay heart transplants until a
suitable human donor can be
Hufnagel said in an interview
he is confident the technique ul-
timately will be "the real break-
through" in heart transplant sur-
He said the Georgetown re-
search will center on treating calf
embryos-still in their mothers'
wombs-with drugs and radiation
to eliminate or minimize the in-
nate tendency of the human body
to reject the animals' hearts as a
foreign substance.
Hufnagel said his research would
concentrate on calves because
their hearts, shortly after birth,
are large enough for potential
human use.
"And the younger the heart, the
better from the standpoint of
further minimizing the immune
response-the rejection problem,"
he explained.

Soil Analyzes Failure
Soil Analyzer Failure

PASADENA, Calif. () - Sur-
veyor 7 ran into its first mechani-
cal hitch yesterday when a device
to analyze soil radiation stuck
part way to the lunar surface.
A Jet Propulsion Laboratory
spokesman said radio signals re-
leased the 5x6x7 inch box from a
door three feet above the surface
but the string by which the box
was suspended apparently caught
in a ratchet.
Scratching Operations
Controllers said they would try
to jar the box loose with an ex-
tendable scoop like the one with
which Surveyor 3 dug the first
man made trenches on the moon
last April.
The scoop was expected to be-
gin its scratching operations later.
If the box is not lowered, one
of the major experiments aboard
the final unmanned U.S. lunar
scout will be blocked. It contains
instruments to bombard the sur-
face with radiation and determine
soil elements by their reaction. A
similar device on Surveyor 5 last
September established that lunar
soil in equatorial regions is much
like earth-basically basalt.
One of the tasks of Surveyor 7
is to see whether the soil is much
different in the south central
highlands where it landed near
the crater Tycho.
The three-legged spacecraft,
loaded with instruments to satisfy

scientific curiosity, landed softly
Tuesday night and televised 1,225
pictures of a science fiction land-
scape: ragged ridges, huge boul-
ders, treacherous craters.
Most interesting of the instru-
ments is a hand sized scoop on
an extendable arm, a twin of that
carried by Surveyor 3 last April
which dug several trenches and
helped prove the lunar surface is
strong enough to bear the weight
of manned landings planned as
early as next year.
During the next two weeks of
lunar daylight scientists at Jet
Propulsion Laboratory will com-
mand the scoop to scratch the
surface as deep as 18 inches,
shove nearby rocks around and
hammer holes in the soil.
Analyze Soil
It also will be used to move
from spot to spot a small box
containing a device to analyze
the soil by radiation. '
Surveyor 7 is the last of a $500
million series of mechanical moon
scouts and the fifth successful
one. They have televised more
than 67,000 pictures.

here in a little while and I'll
make a statement in a little
while. They have no right to ques-
tion me."'
The mission claimed diplomatic'
immunity, and police were not
able to get into the building on
East 67th Street.
Brown, 24, and an aide in the
Student Nonviolent Coordinating
Committee, Bob Smith, were stop-
ped by an unidentified policeman
as they emerged from the mission.
Brown was said to have been
carrying a package.
"What have you got there?"
the policeman inquired.
"Why don't you mind your own
business and go away?" Brown
was quoted in reply.
The policeman said a shoving
match ensued as he tried to take
the two Negroes into custody. No
punches were exchanged and
Brown and Smith ran back inside
the Cuban Mission, while an arm-
ed mission guard held the door
open for them.
The officer who claimed he was
pushed by the Negro was de-
scribed as a rookie, one of two
uniformed patrolmen assigned
from the East 67th Street station-
house to routine guard duty out-
side the mission, which is a few
doors east of Fifth Avenue.
Brown is head of the Student
Nonviolent Coordinating Commit-
tee. At SNCC headquarters, Julius
Lester, an official, was asked
about Brown's presence in the
Cuban mission.
"Yes, we know it," he replied.
"We have some people going up
there now, trying to settle this

gone to the mission from the of-
fice of William Kunstler, a lawyer
