Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 TO! LEHMIDSt NEftMD April Campaign Is Stepped Up To End Monarchy Rule P1KOM PENH (AP) The leaders who toppled Prince No- rodom Sihanouk are stepping up their campaign lo end Cambod- ia's e a r -o 1 d monarchy and declare a republic. Students, other youths and some civil servants took to Phnomo Penh's broad boulea- yards Sunday lo denounce Si- hanouk, tbe Vitt Cong and the to demand a republican givernment.- The demonstration, clearly sanctioned by tbe government, was reminiscent of the anti-Viet Cong demonstrations that pre- ceded Sihanouk's ouster three weeks ago while he was in Mos- cow. But while the earlier dem- onstrations were violent, Sun- day's was entirely peaceful. Student leaders said they planned to continue demonstrat- ing for the rest of the week. A government source Indicated Gen. Lon Kol's government Ships Join Forces To Test Pack Ice In North Waters HALIFAX (CP) The super tanker Manhattan and the Cana- dian icebreaker Louis S. St. Laurent joined forces early today on their way to test the pack Ice of the Northwest Pas- sage. The St Laurent, Canada's newest and biggest Icebreaker, made the Manhattan, owned by Humble Oil Ltd. of New Jersey, about 75 miles out of Halifax and the. two headed for the southwest Up of Newfoundland. Last summer the Geneva-Style Talks Sought On Laos SAIGON (Reuters) Presi- dent Nguyen Van Thieu issued a call today similar to that of Laotian Prime Minister Sou- vanna Phouma for Geneva-style consultations on the situation in Laos. He also proposed discussions between South Vietnam and Cambodia aimed at restoring relations between tbe two coun- tries. In a statement to tbe new ses- slop of the National Assembly Thieu said a peaceful solution to the Vietnam war is possible only if tbe neutrality and terri tonal integrity, of Laos an Cambodia anc guaranteed by an efficient inter national system." South Vietnam is one of the L a o which signed the 1982 Genera agreement turning Laos into neutral state.

Mac- ouald. The trip then was only lariially successful when the lanhattan had to turn from it's irimary coarse covered with a solid ice cover to a relatively more open course. This trip will be against much ougher opposition as it repre- ents the earliest trip ever at tempted into the North by ships of such size. But the odds are better since he Manhattan crew now have a clearer idea of the problem acing them while the It.
