The planners who overruled the alternate assault site were headed by Field Marshal Montgomery he said. On Aug 19. 1942. 4.962 Cana- dians attempted to storm ashore on the beaches at Dieppe and were cut to shreds by enemy machine-gun fire. Over 900 were killed and more than 1.000 others were wounded.

He told them that his original plans called for both a Police require public trust to curtail crime WASHINGTON (AP) A federal commission says police officers in the United States must work harder to prevent crime, but can succeed only if they shore up wavering public trust. In a 668-page report, the na- tional advisory commission on criminal justice standards and goals issued a broad range of recommendations for state and local police agencies. The report is one of a series resulting from a two-year study financed with a million grant from the Law Enforcement Assistance Ad- ministration. LEAA officials said they would encourage rapid follow through on the recommenda- tions by awarding grants to help meet the costs. The police report was drafted by a committee which included law enforcement of- ficials and judges. China marks anniversary of revolution PEKING (Reuter) China celebrated today the 24th anniversary of the Communist revolution in a holiday at- mosphere with free entertain- ment in public parks and cultural palaces. There were no military pa- rades or massive demonstra- tions in Peking and the celebrations followed last years low-keyed style. Red Chinese flags with five stars fluttered from rooftops, while in Peking's main Square of Heavenly Peace the govern- ment hung huge portraits of Chairman Mao on the main vate. On other sides of the square, portraits of Marx, Engels, Le- nin, Stalin and Chinese revolu- tionary Sun Yat-sen looked down on the celebrants. Woven throughout the report were recommendations that the police shift some resources from the apprehen- sion of suspects to the preven- tion of crime. The commission noted re- cent polls showing a rising fear of crime which "has limited the personal movement, and therefore the freedom, of Americans OFTEN CAUSE FEAR At the same time, the public often fears or ridicules the po- lice officer, it said. As measures to regain public confidence and simultaneously discourage crime, the commission recommended: Big city and suburban police departments should assign an officer as a full-time instructor and counsellor at each junior and senior high school in its jurisdiction. He should not carry out traditional law enforcement duties police agencies should lake immediate steps to en- courage active citizen partic- pation in crime prevention. "should assist ac- tively in the establishment of volunteer neighborhood security programs." The commission's executive director and LEAA general counsel. Thomas Madden, ac- knowledged at a news briefing that such steps might spawn unharnessed vigilante groups. But he said police should act with rigid observance of in- dividual rights. The commission recom- mended further that police agencies establish procedures to receive and investigate citizen complaints of police misconduct. The commission also said that by 1982 all law enforce- ment agencies should require a four-year college education as a condition of employment. At least one year of college should be required imme- diately, it added. flank attack with tanks and heavy bombardment. He said he was overruled "My own staff put up a plan designed to avoid a frontal as- sault. "A battalion of infantry and a battalion of the new Churchill tanks would land at Quiberville, six miles west of Dieppe and then go flat out for the airfield and the heights above Dieppe itself. Whoever held those heights would com- mand Dieppe he said PLAN DROPPED He said the plan was dropped because there were several bridges that might stop the tanks if they were blown. "The Home forces planners, headed by Monty himself, ob- jected to the Quiberville plan. Further, they claimed if the landing took place earlier, overall surprise would be lost. "They insisted that the tanks should land simultaneously with the har- bor he said. The planners apparently feared that any bombardment would litter the streets with debris and impede the move- ment of tanks. He noted that in Montgom- ery's memoirs the field marshal said he wouldn't have agreed to any plan changes that would take troops in without bombardment. "This is one passage in Montgomery's book where his memory has played him false. Far from not agreeing with the change, he was in the chair at the meeting where the decision was taken and he is not on the record as having demurred."

Motorists found weekend drives more expensive as many gas stations took advan- tage of relaxed economic controls to raise their prices by as much as cents a gallon Many gas station dealers said the price increase would provide only temporary relief, however, and some shut down their stations in protest. The St. Louis area was vir- tually without any open gas stations, although dealers agreed to reopen today, 36 hours before planned. Houston. Tex dealers prepared for a three-day shut- down beginning today to show their dissatisfaction with the new economic rules The cost-of-living-council announced Friday that retail gas prices, held in control by a special phase 4 freeze, would be permitted to rise by one to cents a gallon. No specific provision was made to allow adjustments lor future wholesale price increases. "We wanted probably about three cents a said Oren Dewey, director of the Central Ohio Gasoline Dealers Association. He said Colum- bus dealers raised their prices by the limit to 41 cents for regular gas and 45 cents for premium. The owner of a Washington area station said he had raised his prices but hadn't heard any complaints from motorists. "I haven't heard anything.

The junta, which also ordered reorganization of the university system and drafting of a new university law. said school terms would be extended this year to make up for time lost. Gen Augusto Pinotchet's government temporarily froze wages throughout the country Sunday, depriving workers of a large increase to which they were entitled beginning today under a system introduced by President Salvador Allende, who died during the coup. The junta said Allende's three-year experiment in leading Chile on a peaceful road to socialism left the country in a state of economic stagnation and no wage increases could be granted un- Nine people C. in accidents At least nine persons died in weekend accidents in British Columbia Six died in traffic accidents and three in fires.

'NEED NEW SYSTEM' The wage system under which workers were to have been given a yearly pay increase to match the rise in retail prices was impractical and a new system would have to be worked out. Workers were given a 60- percent increase in May. but unofficial estimates say the cost of living since October last year has increased by 300 per cent Stanfield has plan on inflation MURRAY BAY. Que (CP) Government must move to foster a spirit of co-operation in the marketplace in order to beat the problem of inflation, says Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield In the text of a speech to an international investment m ad- vance of Stan- field said governments in the past have made policies to deal with individual problems rather than a concerted effort He said those policies have failed because those affected by the policies were "in most instances, taken completely surprise by them The only way to achieve longterm economic growth and stability is to have the state coordinate its policies with those affected and co- operate with those forces affecting the economy, he said Government has a right and a duty to achieve "an environ- ment of order and stability" through careful planning. Mr. Stanfield again defend- ed his party's demand for a comprehensive system of wage and price controls, repeating his stand that selec- tive controls are unfair.
