French, American and Brit- ish flags flew from public build- ings, fireworks burst over the River Seine and artillerymen fired a 21-gun salute to mark the day 30 years ago when the allied forces marched into Paris and ended ihe Nazi German oc- cupation. Then, there were tanks in the street and barricades on the crowded feidewalks Saturday only automobiles and cotton candy sellers. Pleasure craft took tourists down the river in brilliant sunshine. Knots of youtis who were not even born in 1941 strummed guitars at street- corners where resistance fighters once set up their ma- chine gun nests. The only uniforms belonged to the gendarmes and bus drivers. The only Germans In sight were tourists buying up miniature models of the Eiffel Tower. The tower itself again drew crowds of summer visitors, a sight they never would have seen if Hitler's orders 30 years ago had been obeyed. The tower, Notre Dame cathe- dral, the Opera House, the Louvre art museum all were earmarked for destruction in the dissolution of Adolph Hitler's Third Reich. In a "most secret and ur- gent" order of Aug. 23, Hitler instructed his commander in Paris, Gen. Dietrich Von Chol- titz, to defend Paris to the last man or to leave it "a field of ruins." Hitler wanted to see Paris burning. Von Choltitz temporized, nine times, he said. He got the order, and plans were laid to stow tons of dvnamite in the Notre Dame crypt called while on to engineers were wire other city landmarks for dynamiting. With street battles raging and the first units of Gen. Philippe Leclerc's second armored divi- sion pushing through the city, Parisians rang church bells and ran into the streets shouting "Paris is liberated." Von Choltitz, long a loyal Ger- man officer, ended his career with an act of insubordination. He started no fires. He surren- dered his forces without a fight and the beauties of Paris sur- vived. is a he by American policies, following points: if the U.S. as a whole goes and he indirectly criticized' Already, "quite a few govern- Sihanouk Calls on Ford To Cut Off Aid to Cambodians By Malcolm Browne New York Times Service i victory for the insurgent forces; his nation to independence from one or two years, labor union leaders have loifive times as large as West Cer- take their share of blame for'many's. and that West German the inflation that is now; exports amounted to only about Europe's major political and percent of the U.S. Gross Na- cial problem.

In an interview with The New- York Times, Sihanouk asserted that Ford was not bound by the obligations of former President Nixon and thus was in a position to end the war by cutting off U.S. aid, which he said would bring about the collapse of the Lon Nol government.
