The old Stalinist and East German chief of state suffered a stroke Thursday and was reported Saturday In serious condition. East Germany only announced this after an unexplained silence of two days. No new medical report was issued Sunday. The birthday celebration was 30 Stay one of his rare public appearances since he stepped down as Communist party leader in May, 1971, because of age and poor health; It might also have been the last public appearance of the man" who built the Berlin Wall and who built up East Germany to the most prosperous nation in the Soviet bloc* Ulbricht retained the post of chief of state when he handed over the party leadership two years ago to his protege, Erich Honecker, 60. But the post is largely ceremonial and Ulbricht no longer had any real power. A new chief of state, therefore, would mean no change in East German policy. The departure of Ulbricht, however, would remove a symbol'of the old Stalinist era. Ulbricht won grudging respect with the passage of years. He survived every twist and turn of Soviet policy to outlast all his Soviet bloc contemporaries. And the East German state, onco called the "Ulbricht's Soviet zone poorhouse," achieved the highest standard of living in the Soviet bloc and gained international recognition.

Relieved HeatiT British Prime Minister Edward Heath, aides say, is privately much relieved that he will not have to lace a confrontation with Uganda's unpredictable and explosive President Idi Amin at the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference opening in Ottawa Aug, 2. Officials say Heath had been no little concerned that Amin would take the opportunity to dress him down on such matters as British policy in Rhodesia and in Africa generally. According to latest word in London, Amin has decided not to show up at the comtnomvesJth gathering. Apparently ha is afraid that if he leaves Uganda, ha might be ousted in his absence. Officials recall that Amin Nmtetf took the opportunity of fine ahatnce of his predecessor, former President Milton Obote, at the last commonwealth prime ministers' conference at Singapore in January, 1971, to seise power.

Thirteen of the Communist prisoners aboard the third light from the big Bien Hoa air base, outside Saigon, to Loc Ninh, 75 miles north of the capital, requested asylum and received it, the spokesman said. Seventeen more prisoners aboard the fourth flight made a similar decision. ;J; , Five Flights There were 75 prisoners aboard each of five completed flights to Loc Ninh, Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien, spokesman for.the South Vietnamese command, said. Earlier in the day, a field military spokesman had said each government C130 Hercules light would carry 100 prisoners. A government spokesman said plans had called for reeing 900 Communist prisoners today but military sources said a tardy start and bureaucratic snarl involving the nternational Commission for Control and Supervision (ICCS) reduced the total. Among those.whose detention was prolonged by the delayed release were at least 22 infants whose mothers were among the prisoners. Leave Early Government military sources said the ICCS team supervising the prisoner exchange decided leave the Loc Ninh release site promptly at 5 p.m. to HOME SEWERS Would You Like To Cut a Perfect Pattern Every Time?

When the 5 p.m., ICCS departure time arrived, the sixth group of 75 prisoners was already on the ground at Loc Ninh, awaiting release, and the seventh and eighth flights were inbound on the 20-minute C130 flight to the Viet Cong held former U.S. base. A government military source said: "We would like to release the prisoners aboard those three flights without ICCS participation .but we are; not sure we can legally do so under the Paris agreement." Other factors which reduced the total of prisoners freed today included, a shortage of aircraft, government ' military sources said, and a decision within the two-party Joint Military Commission (JMC) to reduce plane loads from 100 prisoners to 75.
