Cambodia's Pol Pot promises revenge

,: 11 1T/!i

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP)-The
fallen Cambodian government of
Premier Pol Pot vowed yesterday to
"kill and kill again" until it drives out
the Vietnamese invaders it claims are
murdering infants and committing
other atrocities.
Pol Pot's own government was
regarded as one of the most brutal in
modern times because it allegedly or-
dered mass executions and suppressed
all dissent.
A POEM broadcast from China by
Pol Pot's radio, the Voice of
Democratic Kampuchea, described the
Vietnamese invaders as "beasts" and

said Vietnamese troops are raping
Cambodian women, plundering crops
and killing "infants sleeping in their
cradles by splitting open their bodies.'*'
"We will continue to kill them even if
we have to fight a long and difficult
war," said the poem, entitled
"Everlasting Democratic Kam-
Analysts in Bangkok said forces loyal
to Pol Pot were still waging guerrilla
war yesterday against the Vietnamese
and their Cambodian rebel proteges
near Phnom Penh, the Cambodian
capital, and around the port of Kom-
pong Som.

THE LOYALISTS reportedly were
trying to capture an oil refinery and a
radar station near Kompong Som. Thai
military sources said the Vietnamese
still held the refinery and radar
station near Cambodian's only deep-
water port but were being forced to
resupply their troops by air because
Highway 4 linking the seaport area to
Phnom Penh was unsafe for traffic.
A radio broadcast from Phnom Penh
claimed Kompong Som was calm and
that the nearby province of Koh Kong
had been seized by the rebels.
Western and Thai sources said the
Vietnamese are beginning to face

serious logistics problems, com-
plicating their efforts to quash the die-
hard loyalists.
protected by infantry, reportedly have
moved up some of the major highways
including Route 5 and 6 leading from
Phnom Penh to the northwest, to repair
roadbeds and bridges that had been
blown up or mined by retreating Pol
Pot tropps.
The analysts say it is difficult to
judge the level of the fighting in Cam-
bodia but that Pol Pot loyalists are
using guerrilla tactics and employing
small units that are difficult to stop,

even in areas around Phnom Penh,
which was seized by the Vietnamese
and their pro-Vietnam Cambodian
Communist allies Jan. 7, two weeks af-
ter their offensive began.
The analysts said loyalist attacks are
occurring in almost every corner of the
country and there is some evidence of
coordination and a command structure.
They also said the loyalist leadership
may have been divided into semi-
independent regional commands.
PHNOM PENH appears to be secure
from a major attack, according to ob-
servers who note that foreign jour-

nalists from Soviet-bloc nations sym-
pathetic to Cambodia's new rebel
government already are in the capital.
The Voice of Democratic Kam-
puchea, another name for Cambodia,
said yesterday that loyalist strength is
increasing daily and that its "troops,
with cooperation of our people and hid-
den guerrillas, apply all means of of-
fense to crush the aggressors.
"We can destroy the enemy's forces
gradually, day after day," the broad-
cast said. "They have no time to rest, to
sleep or to eat."

Pope to medic
VATICAN CITY (AP( - On the eve of a week-long
papal trip to Latin America, the Vatican said yester-
day that Pope John Paul II will personally mediate a
Chilean-Argentine dispute that had raised fears of
armed conflict.
Vatican observers agreed the mediator's role was a
"gamble" for the new pope.
THE POPE LEAVES today at 8 a.m. (2 a.m. EST)
for the Dominican Republic on his way to open the
third Latin American bishops' conference with a
ceremony at the basilica of Our Lady of Guadelupe in
Mexico City. It is his first trip abroad as pope.
The 58-year-old pontiff will travel to Puebla de Los
Angeles, 80 miles from Mexico City, on Saturday for
the conference. He will visit Oaxaca on Monday,
Guadalajara on Tuesday and Wednesday and then
will fly back to the Vatican Thursday after a brief

ite Chilean-Argentine dispute

stop in the Bahamas.
The pope met Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A.
Gromyko for the first time yesterday for two hours -
one of the longest encounters between a pontiff and a
statesman in many years.
VATICAN SOURCES said the pope and Gromyko
reviewed issues concerning pece in the world and
religious freedom in the Soviet Union.
The Rev. Romeo Panciroli, chief Vatican
spokesman, announced that the pope accepted the
two South American countries' request to help settle
the dispute over territory at the southern tip of the
Panciroli did not say when the mediation effort
would begin. Italian Cardinal Antonio Samore shut-
tled between Chile and Argentina last month laying
the groundwork for the effort. The 73-year-old car-

dinal has said representatives might come to Rome
for future talks.,
Samore has proposed a demilitarized zone for the
disputed area. Chile would keep three uninhabited
islands granted by a British arbitration team in 1977
and Argentina would get enclaves on nearby island
and Cape Horn.
An Alitalia DC-10, marked by a crucifix, will carry
the former Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Krakow,
Poland, and a retinue of 20 prelates, including Car-
dinal Sebastiano Baggitt, a president of the conferen-
ce and a former papal candidate.
The pontiff's intensely personal style is expected to
be popular with Latin Americans. "Papa Wojtyla,".
as the Italians call him, says he wishes a "deep con-
tact" with the people of Mexico.

Fleming praised for

or conductors who single out the finest
musicians, asked Fleming.
"The University of Michigan's suc-
cess can be summed up in a single sen-
tence," he continued. "It insists upon
quality in every aspect of its work."
Ford and Lynn Townsend, former
chairman of the board of Chrysler Cor-
poration on which Fleming served,
were the only speakers from outside the
University community who managed to
make it to the banquet. Townsend
remarked that "Bobwas right where he
ought to have been" between the con-
servative and liberal approaches to
problems in the early years of
Fleming's tenure.
Livonia) read a message from Irving
B Isuestone, vice-president of the United
Auto Workers, who cited Fleming's
national reputation as a labor
negotiator as a valuable attribute for a
University president.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Detroit),
substituting for Rep. Bobby Crim, the

speaker of the state House, called
"grace, dignity, and brilliance the
hallmark of the Fleming years."
Crim's speech said Fleming had
three goals: The "incorporation of
civilized values" in the classroom; the
cultivation of an atmosphere in which
dissent could be heard; and the main-
tenance of the University's reputation
around the world.
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor)
presided over the affair and had strong
words of praise for the former
president's wife, Sally.
SALLY FLEMING acted in a position
of "unparalleled importance" in Ann
Arbor, according to Power.
"Happily, when Sally decided to
come to the University, she decided to
bring along her husband to serve in the
largely ceremonial position as
president of the University," joked
"Now that she's going to Washington,
she has decided to take him along again
to serve in the largely ceremonial job
as president for the Corporation for
Public Broadcasting," Power added.

A LARGE part of the talk was con-
cerned with whether or not the student
group should favor an "activist" can-
didate as its choice. Singer said an ac-
tivist president would be vulnerable to,
"the shifting political tides." He felt the
president should be more active in
changing the "kind of education we
give to our students."
