    Background: THE HEAD OF THE UNITED STATES AID MISSION TO CAMBODIA, MR.CURTIS CAMPAIGNE, ANNOUNCED ON DECEMBER 24 THAT THE REMAINING 75 MEMBERS OF THE MISSION WILL BE LEAVING FOR HOME ON JANUARY 15, 1964.

    NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CAMBODIA BROKE DOWN BEFORE IT BEGAN.MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND CAMBODIANS EMPLOYED DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY BY THE MISSION WERE THROWN OUT OF JOBS.

    MEANWHILE, MEMBERS OF THE MISSION ARE WORKING OVERTIME CLEARING UP ALL PAPER WORK.PRACTICALLY ALL UNITED STATES PROJECTS ARE AT A STANDSTILL.

    AS THE AMERICANS PREPARE TO LEAVE CAMBODIA, THERE IS A FEELING OF INSECURITY IN PHNOM PENH, ITS CAPITAL.A CAMPAIGN OF HOSTILITY AGAINST FOREIGNERS IS BEING FELT HERE.A FRENCH MAN WAS MURDERED RECENTLY AND SEVERAL OTHERS WERE BEATEN UP.

    SOURCES CLOSE TO THE AID MISSION SAID THAT SHOULD THE CAMBODIANS CHANGE THEIR MIND IN THE FUTURE, THE AID PROGRAMME WOULD HAVE TO BE STARTED FROM SCRATCH, AND IT WOULD BE A DIFFERENT DEAL ALTOGETHER.
