2 ' Evening Journal, Wilmington, Del. Thursday, Sept. 3, 1SS4 'Emergency I 9 n Malay Troops sia Clash Compiled from Dispatches KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman said today his government has decided to impose a state of emergency because of indications that Indonesia is preparing to "mount a big of fensive" against this country British Chancellor of the Exchequer. 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, In Labis, Johore State, Ma-1 persons found in illegal posses laysian defense forces battled; sion of arms and explosives Indonesian paratroop invaders in fierce skirmishes near this swamp and jungle settlement. Three invaders were killed and one Malaysian soldier died in a series of sharp clashes during the day as government troops pressed their hunt for the remainder of 30 Indonesian would face the death sentence. Rahman also announced his government has asked the U.N. security council to take up what I killed and 460 injured during Malaysia has labeled "naked, four days of rioting last July "threat of further landings," Rahman said. Rahman charged that the airborne landings and a seaborne invasion by about 100 Indonesians last month "were made possible through the cooperation of Malaysians who have gone to Indonesia for training."

RAHMAN presided at an emergency cabinet session after high-level talks with British Commonwealth allies who pledged to increase military and economic aid. "We'll give all the help we can," said. Reginald Maulding, News Analysis THE DELEGATION will leave Friday or Saturday, he added Asked to clarify his wanting about a major invasion by In donesia, Rahman referred to the order of President Sukarno Wednesday canceling all leaves for members of the armed forces. This was indicative of Malaysia Conflict Might Jolt World By WILLIAM L. RYAN Associated Press Writer The Indonesian-Malaysian sit uation poses the risk of a disas ter that could make the un pleasantness in South Vict Nam seem puny by comparison. While Indonesian President Sukarno cancels military leaves and talks ominously of an enemy threatening the safety of his nation, the government of Malaysia reports a small air borne Indonesian attack on its mainland. This could be just one of many feints the Indonesians have been making to show the world they mean to "crush Malaysia." But if one of these feints should go too far if an attack should look like the real thing Asia and the world likely would be in for a powerful jolt. PEOPLE CONVERSANT with the situation say Australia will not tolerate invasion of Malaysia in force. Those who have discussed the matter with high-ranking Aus tralians see them determined, if necessary, to carry war to the heart of Indonesia with all the power Australia has at its com mand. Australia would expect the support of British power w:hich is pledged to the protection of Malaysia, and indeed also would expect U.S. support. All this could present another glimpse over the abyss of World War III. AUSTRALIA appears to have been unhappy for a long time with U.S. policy regarding Indonesia, which Australians see as a clear .threat to themselves. Indonesia became Australia's next-door neighbor when it took over Dutch New Guinea, which Indonesians call West Irian. Aus'rauans suspect were no bottom to the appetite of the Sukarno regime and that it needs dangerous adventuring to take its peoples' minds off the bleak facts of food shortages, fiscal nightmares and economic troubles. Australians see little point to Western aid for a nation whose postures and actions taunt the West. Since 1950 the United States has supplied $700 million in aid to Indonesia, including military hardware. The Russians 'pro vided arms aid, too, and recently agreed to step it up. AS INDONESIA grew more hostile to Malaysia, American aid dwindled. No more military equipment was sent. Joint development projects bogged down when Indonesia could not contribute its share. Aid was mostly1 technical assistance, military and police personnel training and an antimalaria program Last month, the Senate voted to ban all further aid. Even before the vote there was a wave of anti-American feeling in Indonesia fanned by statements of Sukarno himself. Recently Sukarno reshuffled his cabinet to include a Communist chieftain in a high ministerial post. The Indonesian Commu nist party is the largest in the world outside the Red bloc. At the same time, Sukarno announced this was Indonesia's "Year of Dangerous Living," and the cry of "Crush Malay sia! echoed even more stridently. Malaysia has 10 million people The government charged that four "Communist or Indonesian provocateurs" created the fresh racial incident to divert atten tion from the airborne assault. The Malaysian government said the Indonesian paratroop. ers landed in the heart of Ma laya 105 miles southeast of this capital before dawn yesterday. The government said the airborne assault in the Labis region of Johore State was "a flagrant act of aggression." . MALAYSIAN TROOPS fanned out today in the jungle and scrub brush country in search of the Indonesian unit. The area is 60 miles north of the Pontian region of Johore, where 100 seaborne Indonesians landed Aug. 17. The Malaysian government said 14 of those invaders have been killed and 50 others taken prisoner. Paratroopers in the latest assault were described as heavily armed. A supply drop gave them large quantities of ammunition and other items, the government said. INDONESIAN President Sukarno's government has denied that Indonesians were among the seaborne invaders and so far has not commented on Malaysian charges of the new invasion.

Johnson noticed the little boy standing beside his father, Otto Eckstein, at a ceremony in which Eckstein was sworn in as a member of the Council of Economic Advisers yesterday. The President admired the boy's new blue and gray striped blazer coat. "That's a pretty fancy coat you have there," the President said. "How about lending it to me?" . Warren paused briefly, then replied: "No." After the ceremony, Johnson paused by Warren and said: "Now you consider that, and, if you decide you'll lend me the coat, you get in touch with me."

Tribbitt of Odessa, at his side at his news conference. Buckson said he would campaign with Best and other Republicans on the ticket and hopes to "travel with every Re publican legislative candidate in their district." AS ATTORNEY general, and in former capacities, Buekson said, he has traveled the state and worked with many agencies. "I know what they need and how to give it to them," he said. Asked about presidential candidate Sen. Barry Goldwater, Buckson said he thought Gold-water would run well in Delaware. "I'm running for governor. He's running for president. And Goldwater Vows to End Draft (Continued From Pge One) added, "and keep faith with freedom at the same time." He did not spell out his charge that Johnson has used the draft for social and political purposes. But Press Secretary Paul F. Wagner said Goldwater was talking about administration programs aimed at retraining of men rejected in preinduction draft physicals. Johnson asked Congress on Aug. 14 for $16.7 million to help rehabilitate young men who are rejected by the draft on mental or physical grounds. THE PRESIDENT announced last April a study of the draft system and said that inquiry would consider the possibility of ending selective service with in a decade. Goldwater said crime and lawlessness has mounted under the Democrats and he linked that charge to civil rights riot ing. He quoted U.N. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson as saying "in the great struggle to ad vance civil and human rights, even a jail sentence is no longer a dishonor, but a proud achievement." Goldwater said that kind of talk encourages "even more abuse of the law. . . . "WHEN MEN will seek political advantage by turning their eyes away from riots and vio lence, we can well understand whv lawlessness grows even Goldwater said. He said it is not the function of the federal government to enforce local laws. "But it is a responsibility of the national leadership to make sure that it, and its spokesmen and its supporters do not discourage the enforcement ' or incite the breaching of these laws," Gold- water said. The senator added Johnson faces "a clear and immediate challenge to go to work effectively and go to work immediately to restore proper respect for law and order in this land and not just prior to election day." GOLDWATER said Johnson seeks "concentration of power as an announced article of . . . political faith." Goldwater said he would move with care in "our task of cut ting the government down to size. ... "Our economy needs stability and continuity in government: policy," he said. i To aid the aged and the needy. he promised "a thriving and compassionate economy" with its programs handled at govern ment levels close to the people.

The politician-soldier appar ently had continued to direct government affairs although he said he was resting in Dalat. He said he had a heart condition and high blood pressure.

Buddhist pressure already has forced the release of all but 14' of 509 demonstrators arrested in the Roman Catholic-Buddhist rioting. This number includes some suspected of Communist Viet Cong activity. The United States regards Khanh as the strongest leader in South Viet Nam.
