RETAINS SUPPORT The anti-war upheavals in the U.S. coincide with signs that President Nixon retains sub- stantial support among "Middle Americans" for his policy of de- stroying what lie believes to be the 'Cambodian sanctuaries of Viet Cong forces attacking South Vietnam. Even in Britain, where shock over the U.S. military forays and the Ohio deaths is wide- spread, Foreign Secretary Mi- chael Stewart has resisted pres- sure from the left wing of the governing Labor -pally to cpn- d e m n America's Cambodian policy. Yet Stewart concedes that there are "anxieties" among his fellow Britons about the Indo- china situation. One factor adding to this worry is the view that the latest American moves are an about- face in Washington policy rather than a temporary tacti- cal switch undertaken for spe- cial reasons. Some observers had been led to believe that Nixon was quietly committed to arranging 'Vietnamization" of the Indo- Chinese hostilities so as to has- en total U.S. withdrawal from an apparently-hopeless military dilemma. The Cambodian plunge thus came as a surprise, striking many non-Americans as a sud- den reversion to .the supposed- ly-superseded strategy of for- mer president Johnson. FRENCH ARE DUBIOUS In France, President Poni- pidou's tactic of giving America the benefit of the doubt OH Viet- contrast to Charles de Gaulle's open hostility, to the U.S. war is severely strained by the Cambodian ven- ture. A number of moderate Frenchmen complain that Washington ignored world opin- ion in deciding on the Cambo- dian offensives. the Soviet Union has combined: predictable den- unciations of the U.S. with .cau- tion in responding to" British calls for an international confer- ence on Cambodia, a move newly backed by the United Na- tions. The Americans are reported to be relieved that Moscow's reaction to their moves has not been as extreme as it might bave been. But the Soviets are certain to feel a need for making tougher- sounding noises now that China, Jieir rival for leadership of world communism, has thrown diplomatic recognition to Cam- bodian Prince Sihanouk's anti- American government in exile. Executive Hijacks Plane After Knocking Out Boss L1NZ, Austria (AP) A jun- ior executive of a Czechoslovak uranium plant hijacked a small company plane to Austria today after knocking out his boss with a shoe and stabbing the pilot in the arm with a pocket knife, security police re- Austrian ported. The plane took off from the airstrip at Pribram, near Prague, on a company assign- ment early this morning en route to the Kosce steel mill in eastern Slovakia. Shortly after takeoff, the jun- ior executive, identifie das Pavel Verner, 32, knocked out his boss, Miroslav Eocnak, 47, police said. Then he ordered pilot Pavel Bidermann, 30, to head for Aus- tria. When the pilot resisted, Verner stabbed him in the lower arm. LANDS SAFELY Although Bidermann's stab wound was bleeding profusely, he managed to pilot the plane to a safe landing, near here after a one-hour flight. Verner told police he wanted to go to West Germany to seek a job. Verner, who left behind his wife and two daughters, told re- porters he planned to escape to the West in September when he was arrested by police for alleg- edly manipulating secrets of the uranium plant. But he was found innocent and released. He said his wife did not agree to an earlier flight plan and was unaware of his escape today. Rocnak declined to comment on the incident. He said he wanted to return to Czechoslo- vakia. OPPOSES ABORTION WASHINGTON (AP) Dr. Christiaan Barnard'has spoken out in opposition to liberal abortion laws.
