TRIBUNE 33 Cambodia's 3-day New Year quieted by war and inflation By RICHARD BLYSTONE Associated Press Writer PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) -- The three-day New Year celebration last week was quieter than usual as the Cambodian capital, squeezed by inflation and Communist military pressure, awaited either an attack or a government shakeup or both. .Fighting continued through the holiday, with one skirmish Sunday only 12 miles from Phnom Penh. The country's former ruler Prince Norodom Sihanouk, after a tour of the Communists' "liberated areas" that comprise two-thirds of the country, recently likened Phnom Penh to a ripe fruit ready to fall. Observers here feel the fruit may hang precariously for some time, depending on the fast- flowing sap of American aid. The government's military situation worsens at an unhurried pace after a spate of tactical defeats in February and March and a few gains with the help of U.S. air power last week. Communist forces abandoned hit-and-run tactics in late January and now have entrenched themselves on almost all supply routes into Phnom Penh. The average safe distance on seven major highways is 50 miles from the city. The Communist forces -- reliably estimated at 25,000 North Vietnamese and 40,000 Cambodian insurgents countrywide -- gobbled up eight government outposts south of Phnom Penh in one seven-day period this month. They have tightened their nooses around such provincial centers as Kompong Thorn, Takeoville, Svay Rieng and Prey Veng, making supply by land impossible. Even with American air strikes equivalent to heavy periods in the Vietnam war, the unpaid, ill-equipped and demoralized government troops have given way easily and vanished in large numbers. After more than two weeks of growing shortages because of cut supply routes, Phnom Penh's situation improved last week with the arrival of supply convoys on the Mekong River from Vietnam and up Highway 4 from the coast. Government forces have reopened more than 15 miles of Highway toward the Vietnamese border.

However, few observers dismiss the possibility that a determined attack could breach the capital's outer defenses and its, sparsely manned roadblocks. In the month since Phnom Penh's teachers staged a strike and an air force captain in a stolen bomber atlaeked President Lon Nol's residence, the government has installed two antiaircraft guns across the street from the presidential palace, arrested scores of persons, shut down newspapers and clamped on a 9 p.m. curfew. Also damping the holiday spirit were skyrocketing prices despite an apparent plenitude of food in the markels and only occasional shortages in some kinds of produce. One vendor said she was paying three times as much for cauliflower as she did at this time last year. A truck driver who earns about ?16 dollars a month said he needs five times (hat to maintain last year's living standard. Refugees, taking naps under blankets of flies at the unfinished Cambodiana Hotel, have the most basic worries. The government supplies refugees with meager rice rations -- about one-fourth of a family's needs, according to one woman -- for only three months and employment prospects even at 40 cents a day are few. "The people who came here three years ago were lucky." said a woman who lives in a two-family freight car at a rail yard. "The refugees who come now cannot find any work." Relatives of city dwellers used to pour into Phnom Penh for the New Year, but this year many were blocked by Communist forces holding (he roads, and others stayed home because of the possibility of attack on the city and the high prices. The New Year's Bunting and [lowers o[ yesteryear have been supplanted by anti-Communist signs and the sound of distant bombing. There were festivities: parents and children visited pagodas to pray and give presents lo the orange-robed monks, and teen-agers lined up at movie houses showing such epics as "The Young Boxer," "The Man With the Face of a Ghost" and "The Lone Machete Boy." Youths boxed in a city park to the accompaniment of drums and wailing flutes. A suburban village held oxcart races and a marble tournament. But there was discontent -although many were wary of expressing it. "Before, everything was very good," said a guard, "but now -- I am afraid to say." One battalion rode into Phnom Penh last week and confronted the commander with rifles at the ready because they hadn't been paid. The New Year of the Ox will be full of war -- that was the concensus of assorted soothsayers in a riverside park. . BEFORE YOU BUY Steel Radial Tires SEE US We're The OTHER 810 10th St.
