Crush Resistance in Tibet,
Ousted, Lhasa Placed
Under Martial Law
TOKYO (A) - Severe fighting
broke out in Tibet yesterday,
spreading from the capital of
Lhasa to near the eastern border
and leaving 100 or more persons
dead, according to Peking wall
Forces opposing Mao Tse-tung
and his purge were reported led by
Gen. Chang Kuo-hua, 'Tibet's
military commander since the
Himalayan land was seized by the
Chinese Communists in 1951.
If there was any truth in the
wall posters, part of their news
was stale. They said Chang had
declared martial law in Lhasa,
ousted Maoists from their strong-
holds and taken over security, po-
lice and party headquarters.
A Lhasa broadcast heard in In-
dia yesterday called on the people
to rally to Mao's support and said
three army divisions had been sent
from China proper to "crush the
revisionists." One of the divisions
came from Peking, Lhasa radio

The others are Shansi in the
north, Kweicho win the southwest,
Shantung in the east and Hei-
lungkiang in Manchuria.
Japanese correspondents said
Red Guard wall posters reported
the fighting in Tibet spread from
Lhasa in the south-central part
to Chamdo, 390 miles to the east.
Chamdo is on the main eastwest
highway less than 100 miles west
of the Szechwan Province border.
The Peking correspondent of the
newspaper Yomiuri said 20 persons
were killed and scores injured in a
clash Jan. 20 at Chamdo. Some
of the victims were Mao's teen-age
militants, the Red Guards..

Japanese correspondents and
Chinese Nationalist intelligence re-
ports from Formosa said clashes
between pro- and anti-Mao forces
broke out in Lhasa Feb. 5, 6, 7, 9
Wall posters said that during
some of these calshes, 400 pro-
Maoist revolutionary rebels had
been trapped inside their barracks.
No casualty figures were given
for these clashes, and wall pos-
ters showed only an overall fig-
ure for Tibet.
F Yomiuri said another Red Guard
poster reported all telephone and
telegraph communications to the
outside had been cut at Huhehot,
capital of Inner Mongolia. Ulanfu,
boss of Inner Mongolia, leads the
revolt against Mao there. Mao
purged him as deputy premier.
Yesterday it was learned that
Fukien Province opposite Formosa
was probably seized after a "fierce
struggle" by Mao's forces.

The Vietnamese, serving as a

U.S. Marines in a drive called
Operation-Rio Grande, reported
they suffered no losses.
Across the country, a brigade
of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division
counted 128 enemy dead from a
two-day battle in the central high-
lands near Cambodia's frontier.
One of the American companies
suffered heavy casualtiesk how-

Friday for two strikes at Commu-
nist targets near the coast, one 120
miles and the other 250 miles
northeast of Saigon.
Action dwindled in the high-
lands, where the 4th Infantry Di-
vision brigade keeps watch for Red
infiltration from Cambodia on
routes about 230 miles north of
Saigon. Though fighting often

bodia denies the Communist are
using its soil as either a spring
board or a sanctuary.
The U.S. company that suffered
heavy casualties presumably would
need replacements to continue as
an effective fighting force. Such
a company ordinarily would have
175 to 200 men. Just how many
wert hit was not disclosed.
South Vietnamese have reported
killing 411 enemy troops, the
Americans 261 and Korans 243 in
heavy clashes this week. The

Earlier, Theodore R. Meyer,
board chairman, said the regents
would continue to press for a $264-
million appropriation from the
state, as originally proposed.
The board voted Thursday in
favor of the $264 million figure
but at the same time hold the uni-

faculty and enroll students on the
assumption of getting only $255
"The regents are not prepared
to settled for $255 million," Meyer
said. "We will exert our best ef-

The compromise figure of $255
million is $23 million less than
the original request but $40 mil-
lion morebthan the amount rec-
omended by Gov. Ronald Reagan
from general funds.
The decision to press for $264
million also was defended Friday
by William E. Forber of Los An-
geles, a regent, who told the board
that surveys showed it still is
"worthy economically" to invest
even more in higher education.
