JAKARTA, Indonesia (P) - The
rift between President Sukarno
and the army appeared to widen
yesterday over the military crack-
down on Communists.
Apparently failing in his ef-
forts to curb the anti-Communist
and anti-Red Chinese campaign,
Sukarno called in leaders of sev-
en political parties.
Members of these parties have
been taking part in the campaign
against the Communists and it
was believed Sukarno asked them
to stop.
Diplomatic quarters were sur-

prised at the army's determination
to crack down against the Com-
munists despite the objections of
Sukarno, who has enjoyed popu-
larity among the people.
Sukarno has persisted in main-
taining friendly relations with
Communist China. The army ac-
cused Peking of backing the In-
donesian Communists in the at-
tempted coup against Sukarno Oct.
Good relations with Red China
have been a cornerstone of Su-
karno's foreign policy. At home,

that portion of his speech saying
"there are indications that the

Strikes Against Bases

Da Nang and at the Chu Lai air-
fild shortly before midnight yes-
U.S. Marines are based at Da
Nang and Chu Lai. A Marine
Corps spokesman said "a couple
of aircraft were destroyed" at each
air installation.
Helicopters Destroyed
The spokesman said two heli-
copters were destroyed at what is
known as "Da Nang East Airbase"
just across the Da Nang River
from the big Air Force base here.
The main base in Da Nang was
not attacked.
The east airbase facility at
Marbled Mountain has about 40
Marine helicopters.
The spokesman reported that
probably a couple of A-4 Sky-
hawk jet attack bombers were de-
stroyed at Chu Lai airbase, a
Marine center about 52 miles south
of Da Nang which is home base
for a Marine jet fighter-bomber
group and a helicopter group.
The spokesman said there may
have been more aircraft destroy-
ed, but that no firm assessment
was available immediately.
Coordinated Attack
He said the attack was "ob-
viously well coordinated."
The Chu Lai Air Base was hit
about 11:30 p.m. with mortars and
six-man infiltration squads carry-
ingexplosive satchel charges, the
spokesman said. About 20 minutes
later, 'the Da Nang east facility
at Marble Mountain wa attacked
with mortars.
The Viet Cong struck for a sec-
ond time at Marble Mountain
about 1:30 a.m, Thursday, again
with mortar fire.
The Marine spokesman said at
least two Viet Cong were confirm-
ed killed at Chu Lai and that
there were reports that as many
as nine others had been killed
Attack Main Base,
The main air base at Da Nang
was attacked July 1 by a small
Viet Cong infiltration squad that
penetrated the base and killed
one American air policeman, de-
stroyed three planes and damaged
three others. That attack was car-
ried out on the east end of the
main runway at the main air base
here. This facility was not hit in
the latest attack.
On Aug. 5 Viet Cong guerrillas
destroyed part of a fuel storage
complex near Da Nang.
The air facility at Marble Moun-
tain is a landing area plus main-
tenance works for helicopters only.
It does not provide a strip for the
handling of fixed wing aircraft.

leftist booted out by the military-
civilian uprising of April 1964, and
ex-President Juscelino Kubitschek.
Castello Branco took over the
presidency after Goulart's ouster.
Kubitschek returned from self-
exile Oct. 4 after his Social Dem-
ocrats won important victories in
state elections, which angered the
government and the military.
The president told the people
his regime faces danger from
backers of Goulart who "threaten
and dare revolutionary action."

on the government program.
The institutional act provides
that the president will set the date
for the next presidential election
in Congress, which must be held
no later than Oct. 3, 1966. Castello
