ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES Probe Of Cambodia Coup Absolves U.Sr Agency By JOHN T. WHEELER PHNOM PENH (AP) Com- munist East bloc intelligence agents here investigated the March 18 coup that brought Gen. Lon Nol to power in Cam- bodia' and concluded the United States and its.Central Intellig- ence Agency played no part in ft, a Communist source reported Tuesday. Since Hie coup looked favora- ble to the U.S. and the cause of its allies in South Vietnam, the CIA was instantly suspect, the informant said. But there is no evidence of any American collu- sion with Lon Nol before the coup which deposed Prince No- rodom Sihanouk as head of state. The source said although the coup opened the way for Phnom Penh's acceptance of the U.S.- South Vietnamese invasion of North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sanctuaries in eastern Cambodia, in the long run China's interest will be best served by the coup. He said this is because Com- munist China propaganda ap- parently has been vindicated in its claim that the U.S. not only will not leave South Vietnam but wants to widen the war. Other sources said that hac Moscow and the East bloc de cided the U.S. was involved the Lon Nol coup, the Kremlir would have reacted far mor sharply than it did to the Cam bodian invasion and the coup it self. WARNED IN ADVANCE The source claimed that adv anced Communist intelligence of the U.S.-South Vietnamese thrust into eastern Cambodia al lowed North Vietnamese troops and Viet Cong guerrillas to ge out of its path. The reported security leak hi volving the invasion was no; pinpointed. In the past the leaks jften have been traced to the South Vietnamese army. For the future, the Commun si source said, the main thrusl of anti-Lon Nol forces will not >e massive action by Commun- ist command troops but interna! subversion and guerrilla acks. Although the expected contin- ued presence of South Vietnam- ese troops in the country and he use of South Vietnamese ikyraider planes on bombing missions in support of Cambo- dian troops has hurt Commun- st-led forces militarily, such support has its positive side as well, the source said. Learn How To Save In Canada LONDON (CP) Conserva- tive David Howell suggests tha Jritarn could learn a lesson rom Canada on control of huge jovernment spending. The Guildford member oi Parliament, after studying the Canadian separation of powers under the finance department and treasury board, says there 5 a "very strong" case for te- nsion of the British method of uonitoring expenditures. Writing in The Daily Tele- graph, Howell noted that under ;he Canadian system, the treas- ury board is headed by a senior cabinet minister and exercises great power in monitoring and xmtroiling the whole range of [bvernment programs. He said: "The case is indeed rery strong for a proper divi- ion of responsibilities and for he creation of a proper mecha- lism for controlling government rograms and for presenting the abinet with objective budget- ry analysis on which to decide riorities. "The new body could remain ominally part of the treasury. 3ut the crucial point is that it rould no longer be under the hancellor but under its own senior minister." Scholarship ?und For Jnionists EDMONTON (CP) Alberta will establish a scholar- lip fund to enable trade union- Is to attend the Labor Col- ge of Canada, Labor Minister ay Heierson said here. For the next four years, the overnment will provide the cholarship funds to commem- rate '.he Canadian Labor Con- ress meeting in Alberta, he Id delegates to the CLC eon- entions here. "Snce its inception, we have ten proud to financially sup- >ort the college in the develop- ent of the future leadership Canada's labor movement." Cambodians are centuries-old enemies of the Vietnamese, North and South. And such mis- haps as occurred Saturday when Skyraiders accidentally bombed Cambodian troops it Kampong Cham as well as the city's university can only build such feelings, the source said. UPSET TIMETABLE The source in frequent con- tact with (he North Vietnamese high command, said the inva- sion into Cambodia upset Ha- noi's timetable for Indochina, possibly for years. The heaviest blow was the large amounts of weapons and foods seized and there- was a major disruption of Communist communications in the former border sanctuaries. Because of the advance warn- ing, (lie Communist command operating the Central Office for South Vietnam was able to flee well in advance of the allied in- cursion and set up a temporary command centre elsewhere, the informant continued. The North Vietnamese com- mand was said to be hopeful the South Vietnamese forces would stay in Cambodia for some time, spreading themselves thin and laying themselves open for attacks elsewhere. By this account, the North Vi- etnamese will consider South Vietnam the prime objective and will launch no offensive to crush the Cambodian govern- ment. Rather, the Communist command will resort to large hit-and-run attacks on Cambo- dian troops and try to maintain control of various cities and towns to assure movement of men and supplies to South Viet- nam. With the fall oi South Viet- nam, the two other states of for- mer French Indochina, Laos and Cambodia, would almost automatically be overran, ac- cording to this version of North Vietnam's thinking. Foetuses For Research Probe Continues In U.K. LONDON (AP) Britains state-run national health service has been supplying unborn baby embryos or foetuses for medical research for the last 12 years, it was disclosed. No live foetuses were involved in this program. But the disclosure was ex- pected to add scope to a govern- ment inquiry, announced Mon- day, into charges that some pri- vate abortion clinics are provid- ing live foetuses for research. Conservative MP Norman St. John-Stevas has said he has tes- timony from medical workers that can prove the charge. After announcing the inquiry, the gov- ernment warned all abortion clinics against supplying any foetuses for medical research, dead or alive. Dr. Humphrey Kay consult- ant at the Royal Marsden Hos- pital said the national health service program has used 500 to 600 foetuses a year for medical research, none of them living. The tissue is studied for work on immunology, hepatitis and embryo development.
