Gel more out of life Take the family to a movie sanctuaries by organizing a "war of liberation" in Cam- bodia similar to the conflicts that have torn apart Soutli Viet- nam and Laos for 10 years. That is the instruction being passed down from the North Vi- etnamese government. At least 10 Communist command docu- ments captured inside Cam- bodia in recent days refer to this new war. Detailed directions have been fed to field commanders in tech- niques of recruitment and or- ganization inside Cambodia. The instructions are in effect the same that built the South Vietnam conflict from an insur- gency problem into a full-blown war. U.S. and South Vietnamese experts who have been studying the captured documents believe the Communist high command is aiming less to take over Cam- FOR DAILY INSPIRATION bial-A-Jhought OUR NEW NUMBER 327-4581 ENJOY OUR LUNCHEON BUFFET PRIME RIB SERVED DAILY 12 TO 2 P.M.

An April 18 entry in a ca lured notebook said the own was assigned to activate gue rilla elements and "to motiva the Cambodians of respp sibility to join the liberatio front of Cambodia." EXPLAINS MISSION Another diary entry said tl mission of the front was to ove throw the Lon Nol governmen in Phnom Penh and fight tl Americans. The initial alarm of the Com munist command at the con d'etat that overthrew Princ Norodom Sihanouk, and an a tempt to get along with the ne1 regime, are well documented. A communique March 19, th day after the coup d'etat, state "'Si h a n o uk has been over thrown" and warned "all sta agencies, military units, hosp tals and storage facilities lo cated in the border areas to b ready for emergency evacualio when required." Another document ordered: "When confronted by Cambo dian troops say we have bee authorized by the Lon Nol gov ernment to stay in the area Our departure from your are will be decided by your highe headquarters. We at the lowe echelons should not kill eac other. "It is strictly forbidden t mention Sihanouk. The idea to use words to convince them We will fight them in self-def ence if they attempt to destroy us." The tone of later document indicated that patience with th Cambodian army was wearing thin. Instructions to form a new "people s army" began appear ins. There is evidence that this i going ahead. Folk Singer Enchants Audience LONDON (CP) Canadian folk singer Leonard Cohen en chanted his huge audience in a two-hour concert which London critics described as captivating self-abasement leaving deep im pressions of a sad and torturei wasteland. The Montrealer's London debut, in the completely filled Royal Albert Hall brought almost hystei'ica cheering here from what The Guardian suggests was a "fash ionably hip audience." "He deserved it but I hope they understood what Cohen all The Guardian's re- viewer says. "Behind the imagery and eso- teric' trappings, they are no empty songs, as he says, bu songs of emptiness. Peel off the poetry, and the message is self obsession, cynicism, non-com munication." The Times suggests tha i "pretty girls" in Cohen's "audi ence no doubt found something stimulating in his world-wear; stance of the man who has seen and done so much more than they, reflected in the torturei metaphors of his erotic so "gs." The Financial Times de- scribes Cohen, 35, as "tall and dark and very depressing." I describes his singing as "this constant feeling of remoteness of the intangible, or longings which cannot be satisfied by his work." Cohen goes from London to Leeds later this week and then to various European centres for further performances before re- turning home. Canadian Soprano Signed TORONTO (CP) Eleanor Calbes, a leading soprano with Canadian Opera Company, has been signed to star in a Broadway-musical based on the slay Teahouse of the August Moon.

Movie Column Negroes Get Own Hero True Last complete PARAMOUNT Short Last complete COLLEGE MALL CINEMA Alice's Midnight One complete By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) 'Ne- groes :need to have their own says black musician Joe Greene, and he aims to sup- ply one. Greene's new hero is Richard Spade, who bears a marked re- semblance to James Bond ex- cept for the fact that he is black. Like Bond, Spade is handy with guns and fists and can outwit the most demonical villains. Sometimes he's called Supersade. "The name offends some peo-' pie, mostly Greene chuckles. 'No one in the black com- munity would object; for years Superspade has been a kind of 'in' designation for Sidney Po- itier. I am amazed at the timid- ity of the white press in censor- ing references to Superspade." tichard Spade is the hero of a new paperback novel, Death of a Blue-Eyed Soul Brother, con- cerning the assassination of a political figure with a marked resemblance to Robert Ken- nedy. Another book, Black is Beautiful, will appear this month. There will be more. "I'm already writing No. says Greene. There also will be a movie series. Producer Saul David has secured film rights to the Super- spade books and as si goad Greene himself to produce them. FACED FEW TROUBLES The Superspade caper is the latest adventure in the amaz- ingly diverse career of Joe Greene, an amiable, quiet-spo- ken man of middle years. He grew up in Spokane, Wash., with little of the indignity faced by Negroes in other areas of the "Spokane wasn't a' Jim Crow he recalled. "There were only about Negroes out of a population of Most of my friends were white." Orphaned at 14, Greene "earned all the education I ;ot." One of the ways he earned it was to peel 100 pounds of po- ;atoes every morning before going to school. Each Sunday during whiter he walked five miles through snowy streets to light fires in a church. Greene displayed musical tal- ent early and sang and played in local bands, then drifted south to San Francisco to be- come a radio singer. A lliree- year siege of tuberculosis proved the most important pe- riod in his life; during that time he studied harmony and coun- terpoint with a lung surgeon, Dr. Edward Kupka, who was also a noted musician. Plans Unveiled For Landscaping HELENA, Mont. (AP) The state's landsc ape architect, Richard Mayer, unveiled plans here for landscaping of the capitol grounds in Helena, work in the Great Falls area and .between Dim and Vugh. Mayer showed the council of natural resources and develop- ment a sketch of a possible long range development at Giant Springs near Great Falls. He also spoke of plans for an access road between Ulm and Vaughn at the site of a buffalo jump. OLDEST CHEESE The oldest and most primitive cheese is the Arabian kishk, made of the dry curd of goat's rnilk. "I made band arrangements in bed and sold them to orclics- Greene. "My biggest break came when Stan Kenton recorded one of my songs, And Her Tears Plowed Like Wine. Following that 1 had Across the Alley from the Alamo, which sold records by Ken- ton, the Mulls Brothers, Woody Herman and others." Greene established himself as a song writer, record producer and composer of musical scores. He also turned his hand to writing, producing two nov- els, The Golden Platter and The House of Pleasure. They prompted Paperback Library to commission the Superspade ser- ies. Richard Spade, like Joe Greene, has a moderate ap- proach to the race situation: "He realizes that progress is not a one-way says Greene. "He knows that with in- c r e a se d respect comes in- creased responsibility. You can burn down the what are you going to put in their PHILIPS COLOR TV TV JHIIV 9 302 13th SI. N. TODAY thru THURS.
