Vietnamese move against
failing Cambodian army
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - VIet-
namese troops in Cambodia have laun-
ched a major drive to wipe out die-hard
Cambodian loyalist forces fighting a
guerrilla war against them and their
Cambodian rebel proteges, intelligence
sources said yesterday.
The sources, closely following the
fighting because Vietnamese troops
have neared the Thai border, said the
Vietnamese want to destroy a loyalist
stronghold in the rugged mountains of
THESE SOURCES said there was
evidence of Vietnamese movement
from the Gulf of Siam in the south and
from the north to trap holdouts in the
rugged Elephant and Cardamom
There had been previous reports that
the shattered army of ousted Premier
P0l Pot would move segments of its
remaining forces into this homeground
of past guerrilla movements. Last
week, Vietnamese naval forces staged
a major assault on a group of islands
just off the southwestern coastline.
The loyalists' radio, believed broad-
casting from southern China, claimed
yesterday that Pol Pot's forces had
recaptured the provincial capital of
Takeo "for the second time" and that
fierce fighting was continuing at
another provincial seat, Kampong
Chhnang, in central Cambodia.
The claims could not be confirmed in
Bangkok, but analysts said that Pol Pot
troops had scored successes in the
Takeo area, 54 miles south of Phnom
Penh, the capital, which fell to the Viet-
namese and the Cambodian rebel for-
ces oh Jan. 7..
THE LOYALIST broadcast also
claimed that the key route out of
Phnom Penh to the northwest - High-
way 5 - was under the control of the
Pol Pot forces.
Kampong Chhang, the site of a
military airfield and believed to be a
major Vietnamese resupply base for an
invasion force scattered throughout
Cambodia, is 51 miles northwest of
Phnom Penh on Highway 5.
Analysts here said the Pol Pot forces
could retake some towns because the
Vietnamese appeared to have left most
of them lightly garrisoned. But it was
thought that the loyalists could not hold
them for any length of time.
The Thai sources, piecing together
the Vietnamese operation in the south-
west, said the Vietnamese would have a
difficult time penetrating the Cam-
bodian mountain passes, which are in-
fested with a virulent strain of malaria.
Some Cambodian refugees who have
escaped to Thailand have said the Pol
Pot remnants are also spreading
atrocity stories about the Vietnamese
to persuade the rural population to join
The rebel radio said newspapers ap-
peared in the Cambodian capital for the
first time since the Khmer Rouge
communists conquered the country
nearly four years ago. The new com-
munist government headed by Heng
Samrin monopolized the front pages,
the report said.

MEXICO CITY (AP)-More than a
million Mexicans ignored three mor-
ning earthquakes to give a tumultuous
welcome to Poe John Paul II as he
arrived yesterday to inaugurate the
most important meeting of the Roman
Catholic Church in Latin America in a
After stepping off his jetliner, the
pontiff went to his knees and kissed the
earth, just as he had done Thursday in
the Dominican Republic-the first stop
of his week-long trip:

this overwhelmingly Cathoic country
and his primary mission is to open the
Latin American bishops conference,

Thousands had gathered in pre-dawn
darkness along the motorcade route

powerful shock, registering 6.3 on the

windows rattled and momentary panic
seized millions of suddenly awakened

minutes before the pope landed at
Benito Juarez International. Airport.
There were no reports of injuries or
AS A BAND broke into a lively tune at
the airport, a person in the crowd han-
ded the 58-yeah-old Polish-born pontiff a
gray sombrero. He donned the broad-
rimmed Mexican hat with a smile.
President Jose Lopez Portillo ignored
warnings from anti-clerical
politicians not to greet the pontiff at the
airport, even though Mexico and the
Vatican have no formal diplomatic
"May your mission of peace and con-
cordance and the efforts of justice you
make be fruitful in your upcoming
mission. I leave you in the hands of the
hierarchy and the faithful of your chur-
ch. And may all be well with mankind,"
he said in welcoming the pope at the
foot of the plane ramp.
THE POPE responded in Spanish,
"That is my mission and my ministry. I
am very happy to be in Mexico.''
Photographers and well-wishers
pushed through security lines and mob-
bed the pope, keeping him from
reaching the microphones for an
arrival statement.. But he kept his
poise, waving to the 3,000 invited guests
in reception stands. Security guards
finally opened a path to an open truck-
a visit to Mexico
like vehicle that he boarded for the
motorcade into the capital.
Before reaching it, he shook hands
with priests and others linjng the
barricades, and he kissed a young boy
who ran to him from the crowd.
At least a million people, hanging from
trees and walls and shouting "Viva!"
lined the 10-mile route of his motorcade
under sunny skies to the National
Cathedral to celebrate Mass.
The brilliant-colored shawls and
dresses of Indians who had come down
from their hill villages mixed with
yellow-and-white Vatican flags waved
by young and old along the route.
Today, John Paul will open the Third
Conference of Latin American Bishops;
a 17-day meeting in the nearby town of,
Puebla that is expected to have long-
lasting effects on church policy in Latin
America. The last such conference was
in 1968 in Colombia.
,Snow storm leatves

A widespread winter storm dumped
more snow on Western rangelands
yesterday, and officials said the
situation is '.extremely critical" in
Nebraska where cattle are dying and
food is being airlifted to isolated far-
Snowbound Midwesterners battened
down for another ordeal as the storm
pushed eastward, dropping snow from
Utah and Arizona into Minnesota and
FREEZING drizzle mixed with snow
fell from northeast Ohio into New
England, causing at least one death in
Vermont and knocking down power
lines and trees.
Maureen Corrow, 10, of East
Arlington, Vt., playing at home because
her school was closed, was crushed to
death when snow slid off the roof of her
National Guard helicopters flying
medical rescue missions in the remote
Nebraska Sandhills spotted the car-
casses of marooned cattle half-eaten by
coyotes and herds of antelope eating
from haystacks intended for cows.
WITH FOUR additional inches of
snow predicted yesterday, Nebraska
Agriculture Director Mickey Stewart
said ranchers in the Sandhills and
Panhandle areas "are just about com-
pletely exhausted." He described the
situation as "extremely critical."
Normally, Stewart said, wind blows
the snow off parts of the range, allowing
cattle to graze. But this year's heavy
snows have completely covered the
range, ranchers are immobilized and
the cattle are starving.
"This has been a terrible year," said
Ed Becker, who has about 700 head of
cattle on his ranch near Ashby. "We fly
in necessities on a ski plane, but there is
only one good day of flying for every

said there were some ilaces he hasn't

Rancher Bill Thurston finally made it
three miles to the Loup River ,to get a
load of hay for his 1,200 cows this week
and a ski plane brought him some bread
and other groceries. But, he said, "It
Becker said his cattle will "shrink'
because they can't move around and
graze, but he has no intention ol
"We were here before the snow, so we
will last it out," he said. The new storm
yesterday grounded helicopters of the
National Guard's 24th Medical Air Am-
bulance Company which had been sent
to Alliance, Valentine and North Platte
earlier this week when Gov. Charles
Thone declared 11 counties in north
western Nebraska disaster areas.
ELSEWHERE, rescuers were busy.
In Grand Rapids, Mich., an ambulance
crew sped to the aid of a man who
collapsed shoveling snow, said Sue Of-
fenbecker, a hospital spokesman. The
man died but six hours later the same
crew saved the life of his wife, who had
a heart attack trying to complete the
shoveling job her husband had started."
IN Milwaukee, where 33 inches of
snow has strangled the city, officials
were plucking abandoned cars out of
the clogged streets with a huge "claw'
at the end of a huge crane and stacking
them atop each other, broken windows
and all, in city storage lots.
The picture was brighter in New York
and parts of New England where the
rain had eased somewhat and swollen
streams were receding, allowing hun-

Italy's Communists end support.
This Column gets much complaint from folks who say they
do not know what we are talking about, or else appraise It as
foolishness, mish mash and Infamous trash. Sometime ago
an article told about a Colored Lady whose husband
deserted her and six or more children. Although offered a
loan of money she decided they would pay their own way
and did not borrow nor go to the -relief agencies of the
County but labor and work and obey God's 4th Com-
mandment: "SIX DAYS SHALT THOU LABOR" and depend
on Him to bless and provide. (What we need is
"CHARACTER THAT COMES AS A RESULT OF GENUINE
FAITH IN GOD!") It also told how this Lady recently found a'
lost 20.0t0 bail that promptly found Its way back to the owner.
Next the article told about a big Chain Store losing about a
million dollars a year by theft and getting evidence that many
of their own employees were guilty. Then attention was
called to the 7th chapter of The Book of Joshua that told of a
man who broke God's 8th Commandment "THOU SHALT
and infamous trash", it is to be feared they fit into Christ's
words found in the 23rd of Matthew:
verse 17: "YE FOOLS AND BLIND ..."
verse 19: "YE FOOLS AND BLIND . .."
verse 24: "YE BLIND GUIDES ... "
verse 26: "THOU BLIND PHARISEE ... "
verse 33: "YE SERPENTS, YE GENERATION OF VIPERS,
HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL."

ROME (AP) - Italy's powerful
Communist Party announced it would
withdraw support for the Christian
Democrat government yesterday,
weeks after a key Christian Democrat
assured the United States that com-
munists would never serve in Cabinet
The move doomed the government of
Premier Giulio Andreotti at a time of
terrorism and growing unemployment
in this NATO nation. It also raised the
likelihood of early parliamentary elec-
AFTER A three-hour crisis meeting
of five major parties supporting the
Cabinet, communist leader Enrico
vote against the government. Giuseppe
Saragat, Italy's former president and
now head of the Democratic Socialist
Party, called the collapse of the An-
dreotti administration "automatic."
THE COMMUNISTS began attacking
Andreotti's government earlier this
month after Benigno Zaccagnini,
secretary of the Christian Democrat
Party, returned from a U.S. tour in
which he pledged his party would never
allow a Communist to head a ministry.
The Carter administration position is
that Italian voters must choose their
own rulers,- but Washington does not
favor an increased role for the Com-
Christian Democrat president kidnap-:
ped and killed by the leftist terrorist;
Red Brigades last year.
The Communists insist that the Moro
formula was only a temporary measure
in a Catholic-Marxist "historic com-
promise" that entitled them to Cabinet.
But lately, Berlinguer has accused
the government of becoming the "ex-
clusive expression" of the Christian:
Democrats, despite its needed backing
of the Communists, Socialists,~
