were in the United States on January 1 are required to report their

could result in deportation and/or fine and imprisonment. Only
diplomatic officials and members of certain international
organizations are exempt from the law.

Of 18 students from midwest colleges who have been recommended
to the Ministry of Education of Japan for scholarships by the Japan
Information Service, eight are currently attending or have recently
graduated from the University. This is more than any other university
or college in the area. The Ministry will make its final selection of
approximately 30 students from across the country by this summer.
The Center for Japanese Studies here reported that most of the
applicants are graduate students and that they would
study at any university of their choosing in Japan if ac-
WASHINGTON (AP) -China made several major
concessions regarding Taiwan during talks on nor-
malizing diplomatic relations, but U S. officials have
been reluctant to discuss them publicly for fear of of-
fending Peking, sources say.
For example, Peking initially demanded can-
cellation of all 59 treaties the United States has in ef-
fect with Taiwan but eventually retreated from this
position, the sources said.
THE TREATIES COVER a wide variety of
relations between the United States and Taiwan, in-
cluding mail deliveries and aircraft landing rights.
The U.S. officials, who asked not to be identified,
also said the Chinese negotiators indicated a
willingness to demonstrate their peaceful intentions
toward Taiwan, but only if they were not pressed on
this point by the United States.
Peking kept its word last week when it called off its
long-time bombardment of Taiwanese-held islands
off the Chinese mainland and explicity stated that it
will respect the status quo of Taiwan, the sources
THE CARTER ADMINISTRATION has remained
silent about these concessions, officials said, fearing
public disclosure would embarrass the Chinese and
make them less likely to abide by them.
The administration's unwillingness to reveal this
aspect of the negotiations enabled congressional con-
servatives friendly to Taiwan to score points in the
early debate over the wisdom of Carter's decision to
establish normal relations with China.
Some administration critics said the United States
"gave all and got nothing" in the negotiations with
ONE EARLY POLL found substantial opposition to
Carter's move and a feeling that China may benefit
more than the United States.
A New York Times-CBS survey conducted the
weekend after Carter's Dec. 15 announcement found
that Americans opposed closer ties with China at the
expense of Taiwan by a 45 per cent to 27 per cent
The U.S. officials said they believe the recent con-
ciliatory moves by Peking toward the Taiwanese
have helped defuse much of the congressional and
public opposition to Carter's decision.
One concession by the Chinese, which the ad-
ministration has acknowledged, was their decision
not to let U.S. insistence on providing defensive
equipment to Taiwan block the normalization
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - Cam-
bodian defenses are apparently folding
under Vietnamese ground attacks and
widespread air strikes, political
analysts said yesterday, although
Phnom Penh claimed it had blunted a
Analysts here said Cambodian
rebels, who are also striking against
government forces, seemed to be plan-
ning a military attack on the capital,
but added it was difficult to evaluate
the conflict without first-hand infor-
mation. The rebels were last reported
besieging Kompang Chain, 45 miles
northeast of the capital on the Mekong
IN NEW YORK, U.N. Secretary-
General Kurt Waldheim called on "all
concerned to exercise restraint and to
refrain from moves that may further
escalate the fighting" between Vietnam
The Security Council scheduled
private consultations to discuss the
issue late this afternoon and was expec-
ted to meet at the request of Cambodia
next week, after a delegation arrives
from Phnom Penh.
The border conflict increasingly
mirrored the political struggle between
the Soviet Union and China, with Viet-
nam responding to Cambodian charges
of aggression at the United Nations.
THE OFFICIAL Cambodian media
said Soviet-built Vietnamese jets in the
past few days bombed and strafed the
provincial seat of Kampong Chain and
Neak Luong, 35 miles southeast of
Phnom Penh, and four other areas of
The Cambodian government called
the Vietnamese "savage arch-
slaughterers" and described air at-
tacks on urban centers that it said
caused loss of lives and property. The
Cambodian government earlier had
said most of the urban population had
been sent to rural areas as part of a
radical cultural revolution.

"I was wrong. I'm sorry and I want to come home." America's most
famous fugitive has confessed! Abbie Hoffman writing in Feature
Magazine condemns the use of drugs saying "I only used it (drugs) to
lure young virgins into bed. "Cocaine," Hoffman says, "makes you
sex crazy and gets uneducated people all worked up. More people
should listen to their noses instead of rock and roll singers. I was
wrong to tell children to kill their parents," he continues. "It was the
children's fault. Spoiled selfish brats made the '60s. "It's mind
boggling, but being a fugitive I've seen the way other people live and
it's made me realize how wrong I was." Hoffman wants to return to
school, become a CPA and work with Indians, he says. He adds, "If
Keith Richards is willing to sing for the blind, I'm willing to sing for
the deaf. I realize i can't repair the damage but I'll give it a try." Now
can I come back?" Oh, Abbie, won't you please come home?
Due to confusion between the translator and a Daily interviewer, a
story in the Dec.7 paper inaccurately quoted Tibetian Monk Khenpo
Karthar Rinpoche as claiming that he has lived 16 separate times.
