A military spokesman said North Vietnamese and Viet Song forces were stilt around Siem Reap and hit the provincial capital 185 miles northwest of Phnom Penh with harassing fire Tuesday night. But the opening of Die airport between the city and the ruins of Angkor Wat was viewed here as a major achievement for the government. The spokesman said the enemy force that attacked Siem Reap included Laotians who probably were impressed into service as porters. He added they may have been troops of the Communist Fathet Lao movement North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces also continued their harassment of Kompong Thorn, another provincial capital 80 miles north of Phnom Penh on the highway to Siem Reap and Angkor. But the heavy pressure on Kompong Thorn last week appeared to have eased for the moment The spokesman also reported a heavy Viet Cong attack before dawn today in southern Cambodia, on a military post near Kompong Som, the country's chief port formerly known as Si- hanoukville. But the garrison apparently held on. Thailand's military chief of staff, Air Marshal Dawee Chut- lasapya, returned to Bangkok after a one-day visit to South Vietnamese leaders in Saigon. He reportedly made the trip to discuss transfer of part of the 12,000 Thai troops in South Vietnam to the Siem Reap area. American and South Vietnamese forces reported general* ly light contact with enemy units in Vietnam and Cambodia but uncovered another 100 tons of rice and more than 30 tons of weapons and munitions in border areas of Cambodia.

' ' . · .°'g:.:.- -·' '·····;:· Arriving here Tuesday night after a swift visit to battle zones of Vietnam and Cambodia, many in the 13-man VIP delegation- picked by the White House in collaboration with the Senate and House Armed Services committees-described it as an informative journey. Although most declined to disclose their conclusions before today's scheduled meeting with Nixon, Pennsylvania Gov. Raymond P. Shafer, a Republican, said their report on the Cambodian step indicates "the vast majority of those of us who were there feel it was a success.*' "We hope that it will be a long-term success," he added. ''Nobody can predict forever into the future- but what has been done has been good for the American people.** However, Sen. Thomas J. Mclntyre, P-N.H., refused to discuss his findings with newsmen before talking them over with Nixon. Mclntyre, who had-said he decided to go on the trip to "prevent a snow job" by pro-administration officials, reported he felt it "is only proper that I meet with the President before discussing my findings with members of the press.** "I certainly had a fast trip, HI tell you that*' he said.

Ambulance calls: Emergency - 6 ' Routine-1 described Nixon's Cambodian decision as "a great success- probably the most important single military achievement of this entire unfortunate war." Sen. Howard Cannon, D-Nev., said he was pleased to "see the progress that has been made in pacification;" * Shafer said the delegation members attempted to "answer questions that are on the minds of all Americans-maybe we won't answer them to the satisfaction of everybody, 'but at least we are going to tell the truth about what we saw, heard and learned." Car Strikes Bridge Near Creagerstown A driver and two passengers from Walkersville received minor injuries -early Wednesday morning when their car struck the side of a bridge on Rt 550 near Creagerstown.

Another was Associated Press correspondent Dennis Neeld, who reported the hotel was held by tiie Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a small terrorist organization which has frequently rejected Arafat's leadership. Neeld said a spokesman for the Popular Front charged Tuesday night that the Jordanian army was bombarding Palestine refugee camps around Amman, causing many deaths. The guerrilla spokesman said the safety of the hostages could not be guaranteed if these attacks continued. Neeld*s report made no mention of the broadcast announcement of the Hussein-Arafat agreement and apparently was sent before it was announced. Communications with, Amman were sharply curtailed; The hostages in the Intercontinental included 14 Britons and three West Germans as well as the Americans and the Lebanese. All were staying in the hotel. Guests of other nationalities were told they were free to leave Tuesday night, but in the blacked-out, embattled Jordanian capital there was nowhere for them to go. Carrying submachine guns and wearing hand grenades at their belts, the guerrillas invaded the unguarded hotel Tuesday afternoon. They took up firing positions on bedroom balconies and placed guards at every exit Most of the guests spent the night huddled in the hotel basement Neeld said Amman had been without power for nearly 24 hours, and the guests groped their way along the hotel corridors by candlelight But the hostages were free to do as they pleased inside the hotel and none was ill treated. Amman Radio's announcement of the Hussein-Arafat agreement left one cardinal point unclear: whether Hussein was giving the guerrillas a green light for operations against Israel or whether the commandos had agreed to curtail their raids. ..In Beirut an official of the Popular Front said guerrilla radio messages from Amman reported scattered shooting today despite the announced agreement , "It's not as heavy as yesterday, but we have reports of some killed and wounded this morning,** said the guerrilla official.
