Reasons for Cambodian's Hostility
WASHINGTON (M)-The United States moved yesterday to head
off Cambodia's threatened drift into the orbit of Communist China
by issuring instructions for a firm denial of charges the United
.States is aiding Cambodian rebels.
United States officials said tonight that Ambassador Philip D.
Sprouse has been instructed to inform the Cambodian government
the charges are false.
But, at the same time no effort will be made to induce Prince
Norodam Sihanouk to continue accepting American assistance un-
willingly, they said. Sihanouk charged publicly at a special meeting
Gof the national congress that free,

T errorists foreign support including that of

BAGHDAD (P)-Sporadic firing
continued in Baghdad ,yesterday
but President Abdel Salam Aref's
new military regime appeared
firmly in control after taking
power in a tank-led coup.
Aref's immediate objective was
to dissolve the national guard,
built up by the Ba'ath party's
hard-line leader, exiled Deputy
Premier Aly Saleh El Saadi. The
guard, which had become a rival
to the army, put up last-ditch
resistance to the coup.
Authorities extended an ulti-
matum to the guard to turn in
their weapons and uniforms until
4 p.m. yesterday or be considered
Except for occasional bursts of
gunfire the capital was quiet and
a few stores were open. Tanks
guarded key intersections and only
military vehicles moved down on

Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United
Arab Republic, while the Ba'ath-

Arabism. But it remained to be

that before leaving for Damascus

Romney Trails in State Poll
By The Associated Press
Only 8.8 per cent of Michigan's Republican county chairmen
think Gov. George Romney is the GOP's best bet to defeat President
John F. Kennedy in 1964, a recent poll reveals.
Conducted by the Associated Press, the poll asked the chairmen
to name their choices for the party's "strongest candidate against
t Kennedy." Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz) led the poll with 77.2 per
£r cent of the votes, Richard M.'

Nixon was second with 10.6 per

Gov. Nelson Rockefeller fourth

Among those who voted for
Romney as a strong contender for
the GOP nomination was Emmet
County Chairman N a t h a n i e 1
Stroup, who stated:
"I feel that Goldwater and
Rockefeller, while each has de-
voted followings, both lack the

In the Goldwater camp was
Richard Durant, chairman of
Wayne County's 14th District who
has clashed with Romney over the
issue of the ultra-conservative
John Birch Society.
"I believe the party will prob-
ably nominate Goldwater in 1964
because of the tremendous surge
of enthusiasm for him amongst
party workers. I think it's gone too
far to be successfully stopped, al-
ways depending upon the showing
he makes in the actual primaries
next spring," Durant commented.
CARACAS (R')-Army units in
armored cars and national guards-
men were called out in Caracas
yesterday to halt an outbreak of
pro-Communist terror that all but
paralyzed the Venezuelan capital.
Police and snipers fought it out
in the workers' suburbs, base of
operations for the terrorists. Un-
official reports said seven persons
were killed and 30 wounded. The
interior ministry reported more
than 100 terrorists arrested.
The Venezuelan underground in-
tensified its campaign to unseat
President Romulo Betancourt's
government or to disrupt presiden-
tial elections scheduled for Dec.
Reports from the interior said
other cities were under the same
terrorist offensive. Schools for
American children were closed.
Unions scorned a Red underground
call for a general strike to begin
in the early morning hours. In-
terior Minister Manuel Mantilla
called the strike attempt a "fias-
co," but shooting, bombings and
telephoned threats 'had the par-
alyzing effecthofa general walk-
