(Bulletin Photo) Government To Impose State Of Emergency In Malaysia By TONY ESCODA KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Prime Minister Tunki Abdul Rahman said today his government has decided to impose a slate of emergency throughout Malaysia because o; indications that Indonesia is preparing to "mount a big offensive" against this country. Rahman presided at an emergency Cabinet session after high- level talks with British Commonwealth allies who pledged to increase military and economic aid following an airborne land- Ing in Malaya Wednesday by about 30 heavily armed Indonesian paratroopers. "We'll give all the help we can," said Reginald Maudling, British chancellor of the exchequer. Security forces 'today killed two more Indonesian paratroopers, Hie Defense Ministry an- lounccd.

Cheered on by some 1,500 De- roit area UAW leaders, the un- on's president, Walter P. Rcu- her, declared that unless Chrysler came up with a new con- ract offer there would be a valkoul at all Chryslci'plants at 0 a.m. (EST) next Wednes- lay.

The government a c c u s e d "Communist or Indonesian provocateurs" of trying to incite fresh race rioting between Chinese and Malays in Singapore to divert attention from the airborne strike. Rahman told a news conference the state of emergency to go into effect Friday is designed to help the government deal with Malaysians acting as Indonesian agents. Under the emergency, persons found in illegal possession of arms and explosives would face the death sentence. Rahman also announced his government has asked tho U.N. Security Council to take up what Malaysia has labeled "naked aget'ession" by Indonesia. Asked to clarify .his warning Hboul u major invasion by Indonesia, Rahman referred to the order of President Sukarno on Wednesday 'canceling all leaves for members of the armed forces. This was indicative- of a "threat of further landings," Rahman told reporters. Sukarno also is expected to make an important statement in the ngxt day or so on his campaign to crush Malaysia, which he calls a device to perpetuate British colonialism in Southeast Asia. The paratrooper landing Wednesday coincided with a renewal of racial violence be- Iween Malays and Chinese in Singapore where 23 persons were killed and 460 injured during four days of rioting last July. In the latest flarcup, a Malay taxi driver aws killed. The government charged that four "Communist or Indonesian provocateurs" created the fresh ·acial incident to divert attention from the airborne assault.

Robert Estes, pers landed in the heart of Malaya 105 miles southeast of this capital before dawn Wednesday. Malaysian Iroops fanned out today in the jungle and scrub brush country in search of the Indonesian unit. One of the invaders was killed and several others were captured during a two-hour battle Wednesday, a military communique said. Indonesian President Sukar- no's government so far has not commented on Malaysian charges of the new invasion. Earlier, Sukarno canceled all leaves of Indonesia's armed forces, claiming that "enemy activities" were threatening the nation's safety. Sukarno has vowed to crush Malaysia -- a British-backed federation of 10 million persons composed of Malaya, Singapore and the Borneo states of Sarawak and Sabh. He charges that Malaysia is a front for British colonialism in Southeast Asia.
