12-A—LUBBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Tuesday Morning, April 8, 1975 Rebel Forces Push Cambodian Army Into Retreat PHNOM PENH (DPI) — Communist-led rebel forces, firing rockets as they advanced, pushed to within 3 1 ,* miles of Phnom Penh's vital airport Monday and hurled government troops back from yet more positions along the city's defense perimeter. The situation for the Cambodian government appeared increasingly grim. Other insurgents battled their way jnto Ihe province capital of Kompong Spru, 24 miles vvrsl I of the capital, and an official source said "it could very well fall." Another province capital. Prey Veng, about 15 miles east of Phnom Penh, was threatened when government forces abandoned five positions to its north. With the Khmer Rouge rebels controlling about 90 per cent of Cambodia and besieging Phnom Penh, Pnchentong Airport was the capital's sols supply link Ihe outside world. Onr- diplomat who flod the city said the insurgents may launch a major attack against the airfield within a week. Communist rocket artillery fire is increasingly accurate. The rebels hit a napalm bomb storage area and fired other rockets in a patern that covered all sides of the airport terminal. The Communists routed more defenders from the airfield's vicinity, and their assault line 3!» miles away put the airport within extreme range of (her heavy mortars. "The situation to the northwest (near the airport) is very serious," an ; official source said. "There is some penetration in those segements of the defense perimeter." Ohtori Kurino, the Japanese ambassador who closed down his country's mission here last week, said in Tokyo the airport may become the prime target of a major rebel 'assault before Ihe lunar new year holidays I April 13-15. Despite the assault, U.S. planes resumed ammunition and fuel flights into the airport at dawn —the 64th day of the airlift. Two more evacuation flights Monday took additional "U.S. embassy personnel from the country. The embassy was the only diplomatic mission still "WE HEAR A DIFFERENT DRUMMER" With prrwen success!
