Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta February 9, 1972 THE tETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Will cut aid to country U.S. warns Cambodia on coups ny NICHOLAS TURNER Lomum Observer Son-ice PUNOM PENH The Uni- ted Stales Embassy here has quietly let it be known that any coup against the Cambo- dian Prime Minister, Marshal Lon Nol, would result in !lic withdrawal of American aid. The Americans arc extreme- ly anxious to avoid the sort of coup and counter coup which plagued South Vietnam in tne mid-sixties. "We arc not going down the same road in Cam- one American said. "We arc not saying they have to keep Lon Nol. What we are saying is that any change in the leadership has gol to lie done legally and constitution- ally. The American jnnlic and Hie Administration will not stand for any more Vietnam- lype situations." Marshal Lon Nol's leadership has recently been under strong criticism from civilian poli'.i- cians, both ijisidc and outside Hie government, and from mili- tary officers. For some time there was speculation about a possible coup if Hie Marshal, who is partially paralysed following a stroke, does not hand over to a successor. The threat of a coup, if it ever was really serous, now appears to have subsided. But the political pot is still bub- U.S. election row brews WASHINGTON (Reulcr) A major election year row in the United Slates brewed todav after another attack by a top member of Ihe administration on critics of President Nixon's handling of the Vietnam war. II. R.Haldeman, While House chief: of staff and Nixon's policy adviser, said in a national tele- vision interview Monday that critics of the war policy "are conciously aiding and abetting the enemy of the United States." The statement was tanta- mount to a charge of treason. It provoked a swill response from angry Democratic leaders who felt their loyalty was being im- pugned. The comment by Haldeman, a 44-year-old former advertising executive, came only four clays after a slashing atlack by Slaie Secretary William Rogers on Senator Edmund Muskie, lead- ing contender for lha Demo- cratic nomination for president in November's election. ACCUSED MUSKIE In a hastily called press con- ference, Rogers accused the Maine senator of jeopardizing Uie chance of a negotiated peace in Vietnam by pulling forward his own proposals be- fore the Communists had re- plied to Nixon's eight-point plan. Monday Haldeman lold an in- terviewer that before Nixon ex- plained his peace plan in a na- liomvide television address his critics were "unconsciously ech- oing the line thai the enemy wanted echoed." But after the explanation, he said, "the only conclusion you can draw is that Uie critics now are consciously aiding and abet- ting Ihe enemy of the United Slates." White House press secretary Ronald Ziegler said later that Haldeman was expressing his own views and he refused to say whether Nixon approved of them or not. Senator George McGovcrn (Dem. S.D a Vietnam dove, accused the administration of turning criticism into an issue for political purposes. Wing and could easily boil ovei in the near future. American officials believe the Army as a whole is slill re markably loyal to Lon Nol, dp spite discontent in some units over his handling of the recen unsuccessful campaign agains North Vietnamese forces in tin north-cast. "You hear a lot of criticism of the one sourci commented, "but when he tell, them to jump, Ihey slill jump.' The Marshal is still general ly regarded as the iran wh has the best chance of holding together a political edifice tha has several limes seemed or Lhc point of tottering. He is also an important symbol constitutional legality, since he was appointed by the forme Chief of State, Prince Sihan ouk, and was confirmed Prims Minister by Sihanouk's own Parliament. Although it is doubtful whe UKT any military or politica grouping is really strong enough to depose the Marsha' atiempls are apparently being made behind the scenes dis erectly to limit his policy-mak ing role. More complete control of eco- nomic and political affairs is expected to be given to the deputy Prime Minister, Sirik Matak. SIMPSONS-SEARS Top Performers Value-wise versnlilily the mngic by- word.
