LON NOL declared himself president of Cambodia yesterday
and set out to name a new government to aid him in one-man
rule.
The 58-year-old marshal outlined a new government to include
a president, vice president, premier and Cabinet. But Lon Nol said
that he will preside over the ministers and run the Cambodian armed
forces as commander in chief.
Lon Nol's ascension tohthe presidency was the latest in a series
of moves designed to retain, power for the executive. The marshal
scuttled the Constituent Assembly Friday as it put finishing touches
on a constitution that would have made the government responsible
before a Naional Assembly.
NORTH VIETNAMESE AND VIET CONG troops stepped up
attacks across South Vietnam yesterday, concentrating primarily
in the central highlands provinces of Kontum and Pleiku.
In neighboring Cambodia, the four day old South Vietnamese
invasion employing over 5,000 troops made its first significant contact
Sunday in a four-hour battle 75 miles northwest of Saigon and 10
miles inside Cambodia.
Eleven Communist troops were reported killed while the South
Vietnamese acknowledged two killed and 16 wounded in the fighting.
AUTHOR CLIFFORD IRVING and his wife Edith pleaded
guilty yesterday to federal and state charges that they conspired
to defraud a publisher with a fake autobiography of Howard
Hughes.
Prosecuting attorneys in turn agreed to drop some other charges
against the pair.
The Irvings first appeared in federal court where, after plead-
ing guilty to conspiracy, the government dismissed a mail fraud
charge against them.
The couple and researcher Richard Suskind, who was named a
co-conspirator but not indicted by the federal grand jury investi-
gating the autobiography affair, went before a state court to plead
guilty to conspiracy and grand larceny charges. Other state charges
were dismissed.

LONDON (1) - Britain a n d
China agreed yesterday to ex-
change ambassadors, normalizing
relations for the first time since
London recognized Mao Tse-tung's
Communist government 22 years
ago.
The break-through came after
Britain acknowledged Taiwan as
a " province of China" and the Pe-
king government as the country's
"sole legal government."
A joint Chinese-British commun-

Watson said he was received
"very warmly and we had a very
friendly discussion" at a meeting
"merely to get acquainted."
Huang said in a formal state-

Moore Jr. Moore noted that the prosecution may excuse a juror
for any reason, but added, "In this case it's apparent that the rea-
son is racial."
Assistant Attorney General Albert Harris Jr. used the state's
fourth peremptory challenge to remove from the panel Janie Hemp-
hill. The state's earlier questioning of Hemphill had brought ac-
cusations of "white racism" by the defense.

The move was made by Rep. Philip Burton (D-Calif), one of a1

lever to force what they call loophole-closing changes in the tax laws.
