Gov't regulates newspapers DACCA (Reuter) The Bangladesh national parlia- ment has approved a bill to regulate the conduct of the country's newspapers. The Printing Press and Publication Bill was passed Wednesday night by an overwhelming majority and replaces similar legislation introduced by former Pakistan President Ayub Khan in 1960. Under the new law the publication of newspapers will be subject to prior approval from the government. Home Minister Abdul Malek Ukil said the bill would weed out the unpatriotic and mush- rooming growth of new- spapers in Bangladesh.

Both sides in Cambodian war near exhaustion By MALCOLM W. BROWNE' New York Times Service PHNOM PENH, Cambodia Afther three months of ex- treme ferocity, the war in Cambodia seems to have bled both sides to the point of ex- haustion, and although the fighting is far from over, ma- jor crises in the next feu- months seem unlikely. Foreign women and children have begun returning to Phnom Penh in substantial numbers, and not merely because the summer school vacation ended last week. In Phnom Penh, at least, there is a general impression that the period of critical danger is past. There is also a widespread impression that since Aug. 15, when the United States stopped its bombing attacks against Communist forces in Cambodia, the government army has begun to fight better than at any time in the last three years. Forced to fight without American bombers overhead or face the possibili- ty oi having their throats cut by an enemy who gives no- quarter, soldiers fight. On balance, Phnom Penh's troops seem to have won the 1973 monsoon season cam- paign. Among the objectives that the insurgents have failed to attain since early June are these: or an effective siege of Phnom Penh. Arms were infiltrated into the city and rebel forces actually oc- cupied positions across the Mekong river within sight of the royal palace in June. The airport was hit by rocket fire repeatedly. But today there are no major enemy units near the capital. of the flow of food, fuel and other supplies into Phnom Penh. The two main supply roads, routes 4 Hflfi huuo bCTut J KS VLA4 closed for protracted periods by the enemy, but never long enough to cause the capital major problems. The Mekong river has remained open to ship convoys to Phnom Penh despite the sinking of some ships. of Phnom Penh's population to rise against the government of President Lon Nol. Insurgent propaganda has played upon rising prices and shortages of fuel and other commodities in an attempt to persuade residents of the capital to riot or fight the government. There have been no riots, and the only recent demonstration involved student monks who want the curriculum of their Buddhist secondary school secularized. of any provincial capital not already held by in- surgent forces. The rebels laid determined siege in recent rnOiiniS 1.0 Lurcc provincial capitals, Takeo, Kompong Speu and Kompong Cham. Less serious but nevertheless threatening attacks have been made against Kompong Thorn. Prey Veng, and several other key towns. All these ef- forts failed. Collapse of the government's forces, hasten- ed by very heavy casualties. Kven the poorer units of the army seem to be fighting better than ever, however. Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the former Cambodian chief of state, who is the nominal leader of the enemy side, gave an interview in Algiers two weeks ago to an English- language newspaper, the guardian, that is being studied closely by officials and diplomats here. In it. the prince expressed deep pessimism about the war. saying that if China and North Vietnam did not increase their assistance to the insurgents, the govern- ment of Marshal Lon Nol would remain in power "for many years." Western intelligence ex- perts say the insurgents have suffered staggering casualties, partly as a result of an unwise decision to mount concentrated attacks just before the American bombing support ended on Aug. 15 rather than waiting until later. Many enemy battalions are said to be at less than half their normal strength and desperately in need of time to rest, recruit and refit.
