^ u: lk[iafhafa ; 4SaflMjift>MQ.il^fitol«fcfe!-<!h, HI. Tuesday, July 24, 1973 Hearings AM Spke To I British, Aussie® Urge Nationals To Quit Phnom Summertime's TV Ratings By RlCR DU BROW . HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — There seems somewhat less fiollerlfig from television soap opera fans ever since the Mtwtfki turned to rotational live coverage of the Senate Wsliffsts hisrinp. • T»levliM in Review Piri «Jic*Uy, ABC, CBS and NBC go hack to the joint Oftvarage that brought loud complaint* from soap opera Hewers, but the rotational plan—daily turns by the net* works— h&e dominated. For posterity, this means that most video stations hive been offering a diet of two days of soapers, one day of the Uve Watergate^proceedings, and so forth. BUT TUB NETWORKS abandon the rotational cover* age concept for the joint live reporting when they fear the opposition broadcasting organizations will be exclusive in carrying important developments. Overnight ratings of the Senate Watergate telecasts in the New York City and Los Angeles areas continue to be competitive or better on ABC, CBS and NBC. the non-commercial Public Broadcasting Service network has reported that its nightly reruns of each day's hearings have generally brought higher ratings than usual (or its stations in various markets. There has, of course, been much public comment—pro and con—about television's role in bringing added attention to the bearings. AND THERE HAS been cynical video industry talk about the proceedings providing some unexpected summer programming. The summer aspect of the televised hearings does, however, provide one particular angle worth contemplating from a video viewpoint: Most programming, unexpected or not, attention-getting or not, is likely to draw less of a viewing audience in summer than in television's other seasons. For • network programmer seeking high ratings, heaven is a miserable Winter night during the regular work week, with people at home and planning to stay there. Predictable viewer patterns are nectar to network programmers. In predictability there is safety. WEDNESDAY NIGHT SPECIAL FAMILY NIGHT RIB-EYE French Fries or Baked, Tossed Salad Kitchen Open 5 P .M.

The letters of notification, referring to the "uncertain*' security situation inside Phnom Penh, were in the form of warnings rather than orders. They were similar to those issued to nationals of at least six foreign embassies in April when severe ground fighting I flared Just outside the capital Miliitary authorities today reported heavy fighting and intense U.S. bombing north and south of Phnom Penh and said 100 Communist soldiers were killed in a clash only 10 miles km the capital, A month ago (he Japanese Massy advised its resident natienDs to leave, noting that if Phnom Penh's only airport were overrun, escape from the capital would be difficult. There was no immediate report of other foreign embassies issuing warnings today Similar to the British and Australian notifications, but Western diplomatic sources pointed out that most embas­ sies had cut down nonessential personnel and evacuated wives with children at the time of the April insurgent offensive. A U.S. Ernbaisy iayrct said Americans tare being "reminded" that If their presence in Phnom Penh is not absolutely necessary, they should leave, Notification (hit they should not remain in Phnom Penh unless their presence was essential was given "long ago," the source said. The Cambodian military com* mand claimed victory in fighting Monday near Phnom Basset, a hill 10 milaa to the northwest that Communist troops used in Mis past W launch rockets aimed at Phnom Penh's Pochentong Airport, let HUM "Ground action by our troop and aortal bomMfig caused the Communist* 100 killed," the command slid. Field reports said Osmmu* nisHed insurgents stepped tip pressure on iwernment troops trying to halt Communist infiltration up Highway 2 towards the suburb of Takh> mau. Insurgents have been able to force the government troops up Highway 2 to a point less than 2 miles from Tskhmau, which is located about .ffe miles south of the capital. Fksaj reports said u.s waif lanes conducted heavy air raids against Commuitet posl* (tons below Tskhmau on Monday. Fighting alao continued along Highwars, shout io miles to 11* southwest of the capital, the Mparts said. Stem Tide Government troops there hftve dug into 1 two pagodaa and, with the aid of concentrated American air strikes, are trying to stem Communist infiltration even closer to the capital. South Viets Suspend Prisoner Exchanges SAIGON (UPI) - South Vietnamese government authorities suspended the exchange of prisoners today, claiming Communist troops disguised as civilians harassed prisoners who wanted to remain on the government side:. U. Col. I* Trung Hien, spokesman for the Saigon command, told a news conference thait the disguised Viet Cong soldiers shoved and shouted at prisoners refusing to return to Communist control. He said 225 Communist I prisoners had been released by Viet Cong: No PARIS (UPI) - The Viet fjtag said today the South Vietnamese government kept claiming there were secret talks In Paris between the two sides, but that all such reports were untrue. The Viet Cong's spokesman, hy Van Sau, said the only contacts with Saigon diplomats Secret Talks were the official weekly sessions on South Vietnam's political future held hr suburban La-Celle-Saint-Cloud. The ISA meeting of the deadlocked conference will be held Wednesday, only three days before the second deadline laid down by the two sides for completion of an agreement on an election. requested to sitay on the RVN late afternoon, -'of whom 24 (Republic of Vietnam) side." released Monday, of whom 43 This compared with 600 Monday after a three-month' delay caused iby quarrels over procedures and numbers. Both sides must complete the prison er exchangee by July 21, the deadline set by the June 13 Paris communique renewing the cease-fire agreement. Hien said ''about 300 to 400 Communist soldiers disguised as civilians were brought to Loc Ninh Airfield" today. Loo Ninh, a Communist-contnollod district capital 75 miles north of Saigon, is the major site for releasing Communist prisoners. "These people were shouting and pushing at civilian (prisoner) personnel with the purpose Libyans March on Egyptian Capital Demanding Unific ation of Countries By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Not since 1942, when Marshal Erwin Rommel's elite Afrika Korps captured Mersa Matruh and advanced eastward along Egypt's coastal road, had Cairo been threatened from the direction of Libya- Foreign News Commentary Yet here was another motorized army moving on Cairo with scarcely a pause at Mersa Matruh, where an Egyptian official complained bitterly he was left with 150,000 loaves of bread intended to feed 40,000 Libyans. The Libyan objective, as determined by Libyan strongman Col. Moammar Khadafy, was to present to Egyptian President Anwar Sadat a petition signed in blood demanding EgyptianrLibyan unity by Sept. 1 and then to stage a Wednesday Special RIB EYE or FRIED CHICKEN *1.25 Choice of Baked er ft Salad, Roll ft Butter Blue Angel Kitchen Open S Till U sit-down in Republican Square "until the unity agreement is Signed." For Sadat the emergency was scarcely less real than that which faced his British and Egyptian predecessors 31 years before. . Search for Leverage It was just short of a year ago, on Aug. 2, 1072, in the Libyan city of Benghazi, that Sadat and Khadafy solemnly announced a plan to merge their two countries on Sept. 1, 1973. Most outside observers took it as just another in a series of announcements which under various plans have called for Egypt's merger with Syria, with the Sudan, or with Libya, sometimes together, sometimes not. With the exception of the short-lived union with Syria under the United Arab Republic, none ever reached meaningful fruition. It is possible that Sadat himself never saw it as more than another move in a search Wad. & Thurs.

But if he saw it that way, Khadafy didn't. Despite his oil wealth, as the leader of a backward nation of not much more than two million persons he could not hope to establish himself in the position to which he believed fate had assigned him—heir to the late Gamal Abdel Nasser. Foot-dragging Obvious It was necessary that a base be established in Cairo, as president, vice president or at least political leader of the new country to be established by the merger. As it became obvious that Sadat and other Egyptians were dragging their feet, Khadafy traveled uninvited to Cairo and through the early weeks of July pressed personally his demand for action. He did not succeed and on the night of July 9 he departed, driving for home through the desert, disappointed but not yet giving up. At home he organized the youth of his cultural revolution and set them on the road to Cairo, ignoring Sadat's protests that his action, "opens numerous doors to the enemies of union and the enemies of the revolution." In the last year, as Khadafy has intensified his plans for merger he has at the. same time made it more impossible. Khadafy'a eyes thine with the ardor of a zealot. "We live by the Koran, God's book," he says. "We will reject any idea that is not based on it." The full effect of Khadafy's power to play against Sadat could not yet be measured. But he had drawn their rivalry into the open and appeared willing to risk a game of winner take all. of keeping them from expressing their wishes," Hien said "We consider this act as i violation' of the prisoner exchange procedures agreed chose to remain on the government side.
