MONDAY, MAT 22, 1050 Indochina Buffer State May Fall to Communists, King of Cambodia Says BV SEYMOUR TOPPING PNOMPENH, Indochina, May 22; (delayed)—</l'J—The king of Cambodia declared that If Ho Clil MInh' s Qpmmunlsts should win In Viet- i5»«n. this little buffer state in southeast Indochina would soon become a Red puppet. Already, ofCiclal French sources say, about 3,000 of Ho's Communists from the warring north have infiltrated into Cambodia nnd opened a corridor for smuggling arms from bordering Thailand (Slam). Norodom Slanhouk Varmen, popular 28-year-old monarch of Cam- i>odta, said in an exclusive Interview that success for the Communists In Vietnam "would mean the end of national sovereignty of Cambodia." Camgodia is one of three states which make up Indochina, with internal autonomy within the French union. It has 3,500,000 population. The others are Vietnam, with 21,000,000, and Laos, on the West, with qoout 1,000.000. The United States and other Western nations have recognized Ho Chi Minh's organization as the government of Vletnim. (Ho 'calls his regime "the Republic of Vietnam." Since the French-sponsored regime of Bao Dai also Is called. Vietnam, Ho's setup often is referr- I ed to as vietmlnh~the name of its ' dominant party—for the sake of clarity.) U.S. Okays Help The United States has Hgreed to send immediate military and financial aid to Indochina in the fight atsinst the Communists. Mfcghting is largely in the north aSa east—in Vietnam—with Laos and Cambodia relatively quiet. ' Cambodians traditionally distrust their Vietnamese neighbors, who are racially and culturally different. However, bands of Cambodian guerrillas who call themselves Issaraks, lire resisting the French. King Norodom disclosed that some of these Issiiraks recently reached an aggrecment with the Infiltrating Reds froiri Vietnam. Estimates o[ Issarak strength are •ornelhing over 3,000, but they are divided into three categories: Nationalists simply opposing the French, Pro-Reds, and plain bandit* who use the name as a cover. There gr» six main autonomous bands. Tho mine "Issarak" Is a contraction for "League for Independence of Cambodia." i .... 5,000 Oppose Issaraki .. .. The French-officered Cambodian army at about 5.000 Is opposing the Issaraks. Against--the , infiltrating IJMt from the north the French I** about 6,000 of their own troops, with frequent replacements rrom the main French force of about 150,000 In Vietnam. French nources say the Reds are smuggling some arms overland through the moutalns and jungles from Si am. The Oambodian king told this interviewer that his regime- still was wrangling with the French over the terms of the autonomy treaty signed last November. This treaty gives Cambolia Internal independence but retains for France control of defense and diplomacy plus special economic and cultural Interest*. Treaty l« Basis ' The king B aid he regarded the treaty only as the, basis for further negotiation for greater Independence. A pleasant, intelligent young man, the king Is an expert horseman snd handles himself equally w : ell In political Jockeying. His cabinet took a strong stand towards the French, bringing negotiations to an Impasse. Last month the king dissolved the cabinet and took over the premiership himself. Wearing white western garb, he lives In a palace apartment furnished in the western style. The rest ol the mile-square palace and Mninds are strikingly oriental. .^Within high yellow plaster walls are lavish ceremonial halls, a temple where golden Buddhas sit on a sliver floor, a banquet hall where the Royal Cambodian Ballet performs, and stables for the Royal White Elephants.
