The atmosphere tensed. Widely circulated reports, none confirmed, deall with a supposed impending effort to unseat Maj. Gen. Nguyen Klianh's U.S.-backed govern- ment or some other political upheaval of unspecified nature. Humors Fly Saigon is a city of rumors and its gossip often can lie quickly discounted, but (here was a general official impression thai (here may be serious trouble over Ihe weekend. Sunday was mentioned as a likely day. By coincidence, the talk arose as South Viel Nam formally charged thai neighboring Cam- bodia is fighting Vietnamese border forces in open support of tlie Communist Viet Cong. The Foreign Ministry accused Cambodian troops of making four attacks since July 19 to help the Hed guerrillas and announced four Vietnamese were killed. Cambodia was warned that Viet Nam holds it responsible "for the grave consequences that may follow." Other Action Coupled with that were these developments elsewhere: Though it has repeatedly complained to the U.N. Security Council about alleged raids of the American-backed Vietnam- ese forces on Cambodian border communities, Prince Norodom Sihanouk's government rejected the recommendation ot a coun- cil mission that an observer group be sent to guard against such incursions. In Phnom Penh, the Cam- bodian high command said the United States and South Viet Nain are reinforcing their units in a Mekong River area thai was the scene of frontier inci- dents Sepl. 5. Heavy armament of nearly men posted there was reported lo include 105mm and 155 mm guns. The area is one over which U.S. Air Force F102 Delta Daggers palrolled unevenlfully during a strike by Vietnamese ground forces Thursday against Viet Cong units three miles from the border. Cables Support From Peking, the chair- man of Red China's Parliament, Marshal Chu Teh, cabled an expression of support to Phnom Penh, condemning "U.S. Im- perialism and the South Viet- nam puppet Iroops for the mon- strous crimes they have re- cently committed against the Cambodian people."

Soviet sources said Friday they were shocked by the flight of the jovial, outspoken scien- tist. Western sources considered nim the greatest priie the West las won in the two decades of nuclear intrigue which have, seen such men as Klaus Fuchs and Italy's Dr. Bruno Pontecor- vo flee to the Communists. Arrives in U.S. Announcing his arrival in the United Stales for political asyl- um, the Slate Department in Washington declined to specu- late on what he might have to tell or to give any details of the escape. Barwich, 53, left the Hotel President, one of Geneva's finest, on Wednesday when the conference on peaceful uses of atomic energy ended. He had with him an East German colleague, Prof. Max Sleenbeck, who has not been heard from since. Whether Stcenbeck would turn up later somewhere in the West was an unanswered question in the drama of international scientific intrigue. Taken From Germany Barwich had been taken to the Soviet Union from Germany in 1945 by the victorious Red urmy. There he rose, by 1955, to named in two counts.

Reached by telephone in Dresden, East Germany's chief nuclear scientist, Prof. Baron Manfred von Ardenne, called Harwich's defection "extremely deplorable."
