But It is obvious that Chinese pressure on the Burmese could easily be Increased many times over. In fact, propaganda attacks by the Peking Radio on the Ne Win regime have been less frequent and a bit less strident of late, leading to speculation that at least some elements in the Chinese leadership might be interested in patching up relations. CLOSE-OUT A, 5& I TO WLVnj j a struggle against Burma's chronic insurgency. In the North, particularly in the Kachin and northern Shan states, the situation seems to have been deteriorating. Little or nothing is said about this officially because of the fear that Communist China might be drawn into more open support for the rebels there. The Burmese army is said to have stopped patroling this region so as to avoid border clashes with the Chinese. In effect, then, the border which was demarcated only eight years ago, seems to be creeping south. According to one unconfirmed report, the chief of staff of the Burmese Army, Brig. San Yu, had a narrow escape about 20 miles from Lashio from an ambush in which a number of members of his escort party were killed. Rumor has it that Chinese advisers have been attached to some of the rebel bands and that the army has taken a few Chinese prisoners, including PRICES GOOD THRU S The result was that they switched their loyalty to the army, which made a series of successful surprise attacks on Communist strongholds, capturing the main headquarters on Sept. 19, five days before Thakin Than Tun was shot. However, it is still too soon to take these successes as proof that the army is finally getting the upper hand in its Cardinal W ysznski To Visit Vatiean WARSAW, Poland (AP) Stefan Cardinal Wysznski, banned from travel abroad since he angered Communist authorities in 1965, left by train Monday night for a visit to the Vatican. He was expected to be gone a month or so. The cardinal, 67, incurred Communist wrath after the Polish bishops addressed a letter of forgiveness and reconciliation to the German bishops during the 1965 Ecumenical Council. The cardinal was accused of meddling in foreign affairs. f Chubby f Fashions $ for i Children SIMONS 4 716 Clematis St. 4 & West Palm Beach 4 cause of economic shortages and, potentially at least, a time of opportunity for the rebels. But Instead of making a broad national appeal that might have won them support, they took the narrowest of Ideological stands. Readiness to kill with cruelty became the test of revolutionary fervor. The old-line leaders were accused of being revisionists and were hacked to death, usually by women, while their erstwhile comrades cried, "Hail victory?" or "Red power?" Three members of the party's eight-man Politburo died in this manner. Soon Thakin Than Tun found he had to disarm a number of his followers, according to White Flag insurgents who surrendered to the government. Increasingly he relied on militant younger members of the party, some of whom had been trained in China. Then in the last two months before his death, he began a bloody purge of these young men. Meanwhile, the terror had spread through villages that had been generally loyal to the White Flag Communists. Given Title CHARLOTTE, N.C.

(C ) Nrw York Tlmm New Service MANDALAY. Burma Communist Insurgents operating in the densely forested hills of Central Burma are reeling from a disastrous series of setbacks a year after Communist China declared its open support for their rebellion. The worst of their troubles have been self-inflicted. Purges inspired by China's cultural revolution led to a bloodletting in which most of the old leaders of what are known as the White Flag Communists were wiped out. The movement's discipline, which had survived 20 years of guerrilla fighting, started to collapse as the purges gained In momentum, the victims being tortured to death In execution rites. This collapse culminated in the reported assassination in September of the leader of the White Flags, Thakin Than Tun, by a young follower embittered by the executions and fearful of being purged himself. Before he took to the hills, Thakin Than Tun had been one of the heroes of Burma's independence movement. The Burmese Army acknowledges that it has not recovered the slain leader's body but says it has proof of his death that it will make public soon. According to officials, Thakin Than Tun died as he was being borne Into the hills near Toungoo on the back of one of Iwo trained elephants still held by the rebels. Two years ago, when the White Flag Communists were gaining in strength, they were said to have had about 20 elephants at their disposal. Their decline can be traced to the early mouths of last year when they began their version of the cultural revolution.

Now, half a world from home. Lamdark works as an usher in a movie theater in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and finds life pleasant. Sonam Hreythar formerly herded yak on Tibet's high plains. Now he works in a met-alware factory in the Swiss village of Rikon, learning new skills. The two men are among more than 80,000 Tibetans who followed their god-king, the Dalai Lama, Into exile to escape Chinese Communist rule. With aid from sympathetic Swiss organizations, some 600 refugees have found a new life in the shadow of the Alps. Small groups of Tibetans, most of them with relatives already in Switzerland, continue to settle on Swiss homesteads. In National Geographic, Laura Pilarskl describes one group of 48 refugees arriving at Zurich's Kloten Airport after a tiring, 4,500-mile journey from Bombay: "They arrived in traditional Tibetan dress, the women wearing the jumperlike chupa in full-length style, and the men in a knee-length version of the same garment. Silk blouses, hand-woven aprons, colorful jackets, felt boots, and fur caps completed the garb. "They carried their few belongings in sacks or wrapped in pieces of cloth, and yet the jewelry In their possession included many old and precious pieces . . . "More than anything else, though, they came bearing the accouterments of their religion. A frail woman, probably close to 70 years old, twirled a wooden prayer wheel, allowing It to slow down but never to stop. The children clutched framed photographs of the Dalai Lama wrapped in white ceremonial scarfs." Most of the male settlers eagerly seek factory jobs. Some become so delighted with their new skills that they stay past the closing whistel and must be sent home. Tibetan refugees generally adjust well to life In Switzerland, Miss Pilarskl says. The youngsters have taken to ice hockey, and one boy beat everyone else In his village at Switzerland's own sport skiing. Centuries of tradition, however, create unique problems. Among them: the absence of yak butter, which Tibetans, mix in their tea, burn in ceremonial lamps, and occasionally use as halrdresslng. The cost of regular Swiss butter rules out these customs. Guided by newly acquired supermarket savvy, the settlers have switched to cheaper oleomargarine. Unfamiliar European practices, such as banking, puzzle the immigrants. Persuaded to deposit their earnings for safekeeping, Tibetans shrewdly marked their money with X's. When withdrawn did not produce the same notes, they protested. , limit Ei: Uli GOOD THRU NOV. 10 msmssL VIVID 226 sq. in. rectangular COIOR TV Revolutionary ASTRO-SONIC lolid stale . sound system Thrilling Stereo FM plus Monaural FMAM Radio Four high fidelity speakers True Stereo Phonograph that lets your records last o lifetime. 1 Ma- A PI SCOTCH KISS I .s ; r'Jf I Ik l'4l "" titft I son ASA MAGNAVOX SOLID STATE STEREO Brings You A Vast Improvement in the Re-creation Of Music ASPHALT BASE s DRIVEWAY i SEALER $ 7 $495 JT" PERFECT AT HOME OR ON THE GO!
