"Weare not now planning to implement a mandatory pro- gram at any specific time in the forseeable said Pres- ident Nixon's top energy aide, former Colorado Gov. John A. Love. "We are attempting to de- velop the best program, howev- er, in recognition that circum- stances in the future may re- quire such a he said. Love said the mandatory al- location program was being of- fered to give the public the oph portunity to consider the prob- lems involved and to make comments on how to help re- medy the problem. He welcomed debate over the proposed program, saying that "this or any other manda- tory program runs the very great risk of reducing, not in- creasing, the available supplies offuels." Lovt said a voluntary alloca- tion plan announced earlier by the administration would re- main in effect for the time being. Love said he has urged price controls "which fully recognize the need for increased supply. He said that an announce- ment will be made Friday on final Phase rules which he said he believed "will facilitate increased imports of both crude oil and products, as well as increased domestic produc- tion..." He said the Phase 4 regula- tions will give special attention to meeting the problems of heating oil for his winter. Love emphasized his inten- tion "to do all in my power to insure that fair play prevails" for independent petroleum dealers. Ixivesaid the administration also was considering a tempo- rary measure that would pro- hibit utilities and industrial firms with large boilers from switching from coal to petrole- um or from residual fuels to home heating fuels, except where necessary to meet clean air standards. Under the mandatory allo- cation program all major re- finers operating at 90 per cent of capacity or above would be required to offer a proportional share of domestic crude oil for sale to small refiners. Major refiners not up to this capacity would be exempt from offering domestic crude oil for sale, but would he required to report to the Department of the Interior. To encourage exploration for new reserves, the new discover- ies would be exempted from the allocation program. Imported crude oil also would be exempt. U.S. Crime Panel Backs Gun Curb WHO IS WHICH?

They were at Prey Bang, a village 15 miles northeast of Phnom Penh on July 29, and at Setbo, 13 miles southeast of the capital on July 30, the sources said. At Prey Bang, three Cam- bodian soldiers were killed, 10 were wounded and fourpersons were listed as missing.

Opfer, claimed that an investigation indicated American planes were not re- sponsible for killing 15 civilians at Veal Sbau, three miles from Phnom Penh on Sunday.

He said four Cambodian propeller- driven T28s dropped four bombs and two .rockets, but villagers said the bombs fell from jet fighter bombers. The Cambodian air force has no jets. WASHINGTON (AP) A federal crime commission today urged all states to out- law handguns except for law enforcement and military of- ficers and to seize all those in civilian hands. The commission also said states should no longer impose jail sentences for the crimes of gambling, marijuana use, por- nography, prostitution and pri- vate sexual acts between con- senting adults. States should consider re- pealing laws against those ac- tivities, the commission said. The recommendations were contained in a 318-page report by the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Jus- tice Standards and Goals. The commission chairman, former Delaware Gov. Russell W. Peterson, delivered the re- port to Atty. Gen. Elliot L. Ri- chardson today. The 22- member commission, including present and former governors, state and local police officials and judges, drafted the recom- mendations after a two-year study financed by a million federal grant. In a statement prepared for a news conference, Richardson said the study "may. be the most important report on crime control ever compiled in this country." It recommended no change in present laws regulating rifles and shotguns and said weapons collectors should be permitted to keep inoperative handguns. "The commission believes private use and possession of handguns infringes on the right of the American public to be free from violence and death caused by the use of hand- the report said. Acknowledging that many citizens keep guns for personal protection, the commission said, "a handgun in the home is more likely to kill a member of the family than it is to pro- vide lifesaving protection from burglars and robbers."
