Also this week, Hun Sen, leader of the Vietnamese-backed government in I'hnom I'enh, will meet in Jakarta with Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the mercurial head of the Cambodian resistance coalition that includes the Khmer Rouge. Sihanouk is also scheduled to meet U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle in the Indonesian capital today. Quayle has just ended a visit to Australia. By ULI SCHMETZRR S ItiT ChKlM Trnun HANOI, VIETNAM - Khmer Rouge guerrilla forces have launched strategic forays deep into Cambodia in recent weeks to establish operational bases and enclaves before Vietnam withdraws the last of its 50,000 troops at the end of September. "The Khmer Rouge attacked those areas, particularly in Battambang province, from which Vietnam had pulled back its troops already," Gen. Tran Cong Man said last week. In some cases, he said, the guerrillas fought hit-and-run battles with Cambodian troops for two weeks before they were routed. He said the guerrillas also stepped up sabotage activities on railway lines and in villages. "We know they have established some bases in jungle villages, but so far there is no area which they control," he said. The new Khmer Rouge threat in war-weary Cambodia was seen by military experts in Hanoi as a last-ditch effort by the Maoist guerrillas, whose reign of terror in the 1 970s cost the lives of an estimated 1 million Cambodians. The new guerrilla offensive comes as Vietnamese and Chinese officials are scheduled to meet in Beijing this week to finalize assurances that China will no longer support the Khmer Rouge and that Vietnam will withdraw the last of its soldiers and leave no "advisers" in Cambodia. The Sino-Vietnamese talks are an important prelude to the Sino-Soviet summit on May 15; the key obstacle to normal relations between the two communist giants remains a peaceful The One Barefooted dancers perform in papal rite ? Iltl N.w York Tinrn TANANARIVE, MADAGASCAR At the end of an outdoor beatification ceremony here Sunday, two dozen barefoot boys and girls danced before Pope John Paul II while a congregation of hundreds of thousands sang a lilting hymn in the Malagasy language. A similar event occurred the day before at another service, held on Madagascar's northern tip. Eight young women performed. In the 1 1 years of his papacy, John Paul has encouraged the incorporation of indigenous music, dances, and even liturgy into Roman Catholic services as a means of hastening his church's rapid growth across Africa. A recurrent theme, echoed in speeches and homilies as his latest African journey continues, is that Catholicism must adapt itself to some aspects of African life and not seek to supplant them.
