Fighting Rages Near Capital PHNOM PENH (AP) A broad crescent of Communist attacks developed Monday south and west of Phnom Penh, with some fighting reported only 19 miles from the Cambodian Capi- tal. In tlie most serious attack, Communist troops overwhelmed a government garrison at the outpost town of Srang, 32 miles southwest of Phnom Penh. They also were threatening the rural commercial town of Tram Khnar, about five miles to the east. It is believed the North Viet- namese and Viet Cong launched the attacks from nearby moun- tains in search of food. There were large rice stores in Srang and more food at Tram Khnar. The Communist attacks came on the 16th anniversary of the Geneva agreements on Indo- :hina, which established the in- dependence of Laos and Cam- jodia and partitioned Vietnam.

Argue: Seek Opinion OTTAWA H a z e n Argue wan) called on the governmen! today to seek "grass-roots farm opinion" in planning its 1971 ag- ricultural program. In no circumstances, he said in a statement, should there be any lowering of initial prices for grain in the new crop year. Senator Argue said that' any further lowering of initial prices would be n "cruel and uncons- cionable blow." Further deterio- ration in agricultural income must be halted, the statement said. He suggested that a question- naire be sent to every Prairie farm producer to seek opinions on proposed policies. Public meetings should also be held this fall to gain the necessary grass-roots opinions. The statement said the pro- posals prepared by the special study group on agriculture' are unacceptable. "This far-ranging controver- sial report was hurriedly pro- duced without any consultation with work of a mlf dozen academics conceived without benefit of grass-roots opinion." "I suggest that now is the time for Western Canada to speak with a united Sen- ator Argue said.

He said social development programs in Alberta are not adequate for the farm popula- tion with many rural families living at "bare subsistence levels and many do not have enough to cover all family needs." A negative Income tax plan would eliminate many welfare schemes and help those farm families who now are unable to obtain welfare assistance be- cause they own large farm Mr. Babey emphasized, how- ever, the introduction of a guaranteed annual income or Suffield Blast Crater May Help Moon Explorers MEDICINE HAT (CP) Five hundred tons of TNT will be exploded at the Suffield Ex- perimental Station in southern Alberta Thursday to determine the effects of long-duration blast waves on simulated civi- lian and military targeis.

There is much unnecessary duplication in welfare pro- grams at the three levels of government, he told the four senators and about 60 specta- tors. Police Advice Department: Don't Pick Up Hitcli-ffikers EDMONTON (OP) T h e re is nothing to indicate that hitch-hiking is responsible for any part of a crime increase in Alberta, an RCMP spokes- man says. The spokesman, commenting on statements by Mayor Tom Campbell of Vancouver that hitch-hikers may be r e s p o n- sible for a crime increase in his city, said only a small per- centage of crimes in Alberta can be attributed to hitch- bikers.

Milvain of Al- berta Supreme Court ruled Monday that a magistrate's de- cision on tlw validity of the driver demerit system had "ab- solutely no application" on the case being heard. The chief justice made no decision on the validity of the Alberta demerit system, but is- sued an order compelling any magistrate with jurisdiction to hear the speeding charge against Betty M. Coldbeck of Calgary. Magistrate L. A. Justason ruled June 30 that the demerit point system, proclaimed April 1 as part of the Alberta High- ways Act, was incorrectly en- acted and was unconstitutional. He threw out the speeding charge: The chief justice said in an interview that charges under the act cannot be invalidated even if the demerit point sy- stem is ruled unconstitutional because they are two different things. "The demerit system is part of administration, not part of the judicial punishment." While a convicted person could appeal against the num- ber of demerit points he re- ceived upon conviction tinder the act, his original trial and sentencing are entirely sep- Wall Comes Down JERUSALEM (AP) men began demolishing today the last remnants of the wall that once divided the Arab and Jewish sectors of this city.
