Fleeing Cambodians block U.S. raids { United Press International <; PHNOM PENH — American warplanes flew protective coyer over river and road convoys in Cambodia Friday, but were unable to attack anti-government t r o o p s advancing north of Phnom Penh because of fleeing civilian refugees. The government newspaper Prayoch Khmer appealed! in an open letter to the U.S. Congress ,to allow American planes to continue their raids over Cambodia. If the raids are halted, the newspaper said, Cambodia will fall to '.. the Communists. The letter was the most lengthy reference yet in the controlled Phnpm Penh press to the possibility of a bombing halt. [On- Highway 6, where two towtis have already fallen to the Communists this week, more than 2,000r ef u gees streamed toward a ferry Crossing 18 miles north of Phnom Penh to escape advancing Communist troops. The refugees told newsmen another government position four miles north of the ferry crossing 18 miles north of Friday, and the Communist forces were continuing to move toward the capital. Four Cambodian soldiers who had stripped off their military uniforms and fled the front said 30 of their comrades were captured. Troops holding the west bank of the ferry crossing asked permission to abandon their post at mid-morning, but their commanders refused. Later i nthe day, they pushed out approximately 400 yards from the ferry crossing, and at least one Cambodian soldier was wounded and N. Korea aide OKd at V.N. UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Secretary General Kurt Waldheim Friday approved a request from North Korea to send an observer to U.N. headquarters. Waldheim cabled North Korean Foreign Minister Ho Dan that he anticipated no problem for the North Koreans in obtaining U.S. visas. South Korean has had an observer mission since 1949. The North Koreans qualified for observer status last month when they won membership in the World Health Organization, one of the U.N. specialized agencies.

THOMAS ROAD 947-7765 three others captured. U.S. observation pilots reported the road strewn with bodies and said planes could not bomb or strafe because of the fleeing refugees. Field reports said more than 2,000 refugees crossed on one ferry during the morning and early afternoon, and others were continuing to filter toward the ferry through the rice field. American planes flew escort missions Friday, covering a truck convoy of 216 ve- hicles bringing rice and fish to Phnom Penh from the southern deepwater port of Kompong Som and accompanying empty supply ships returning to the Mekong River from the Cambodian capital to South Vietnam. The road convoy arrived safely, but naval sources said one empty oil tanker was damaged by rocket fire on the trip to supply ports in South Vietnam where the ships reload. No one was injured in the attack, the sources said. VAHItY OR. BPTH HNTIO.W 6010 f P 8 KITCHEN.

Reds shell S. Vietnam refugee camp United Press International SAIGON — Communist artillery shelled a refugee camp near the Central Highlands city of Kontum just an hour after President Nguyen Van Thieu inspected the settlement and left, the Saigon Command said Friday. The command said 17 civilians were wounded Thursday when the Communists fired 31 artillery shells into the Ngok Long refugee settlement two miles southwest of Kontum and into Tan Dien village four miles to the southwest. Some of the shells came from the deadly accurate Soviet- made 130mm guns. The bombardment occurred as fighting intensified near Kontum, a central highlands city 260 miles north of Saigon, despite a local South Viet- n a m e s e government commander's ultimatum to the Communists to pull back by Friday or face a counter-offensive. In truce developments, recovery of the bodies of U.S. war dead buried in North Vietnam was delayed again Friday by a dispute over flight safety between the American and North Vietnamese delegations to the joint military team. For the second straight week, the weekly U.S. Air Force round-trip flight from Saigon to Hanoi was canceled because the U.S. delegation insisted that the Hanoi delegates guarantee they were carrying no incendiary materials aboard. Hanoi delegates say they have no objection to flight safety but they cannot follow a procedure that was "unilaterally" adopted by the U.S. delegation without an decision by them. The argument arose after the attache case of one of the Hanoi delegates caught fire on the return flight June 8, injuring seven people and damaging the interior of the plane.
