By The Associated Press
MARSHAL LON NOL, Cambodia's semi-invalid prime minis-
ter, fired the nation's first vice premier and superminister of the
interior, In Tam yesterday for alleged incompetence.
The move may bring on a government crisis.
In Tam's sudden removal from the government was believed a
result of factional rivalries. Rumors of an impending reshuffle of
the government had been circulating for several days as criticism of
the administration's alleged shortcomings, particularly in the field
of economics, surfaced in the press.
In addition to leaving the vice premier post, In Tam also must
relinquish his rank as a brigadier general in the Cambodian army.

SUDANESE LEADER Jaafar el Numairi has charged the
Soviet Union with masterminding both the abortive coup against
him in July and a plot against President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
two months earlier.
Numairi's charges, his most direct against Russia since the July
coup, were made in a speech at East Gereif, near Khartoum, Sept. 10.
The speech, part of his campaign in Sudan's current presidential
referendum, went unreported by any of the Arab news agencies. His
remarks have only now become known, through diplomatic sources.
Former Egyptian Vice President Ali Sabry and 11 other former_
ministers and top political leaders are on trial in Cairo for their lives,
accused of plotting to overthrow President Sadat.

This boost occurred despite a shrinking of relief rolls in the past
The department of Health Education and Welfare said state, local
and federal expenditures for all forms of public assistance, including
medical aid and welfare, increased $3.4 billion to $16.3 billion over
the year. The total is almost double the $8.9 billion four years ago.
