Rebels Take Outpost Near Phnom Penh; U.S. Plane Damaged Thursday. April 10. 1975. THE HKRALD, Prove. Utah-Page 5 DR.RICHARDL.GUNN DR. GRANT VON HARRISON Research Granfs Awarded 2 at T' Commissioner Neal A. Maxwell of the LDS Church Educational System has named Dr. Richard L. Gunn and Dr. Grant Von Harrison as recipients of Commissioner's Research Fellowships for the 1975-76 academic year. Fellowships are awarded annually to distinguished LDS scholars to help them prepare scholarly works for publication. Competition for the fellowships is open to LDS scholars within and without the Church Educational System. Dr. Gunn is a professor of art and education at Brigham Young University. He will use the fellowship to develop ways of intensifying art appreciation among LDS peoples. The professor believes modern man lives in "visual litter, " and he plans to publish a work which will help people become more appreciateive of the subtle beauties and aesthetic elements found in various art forms. He also hopes to illustrate the rde of art in the spiritual life of man. Dr. Harrison is an associate professor of instructional psychology at BYU. He will use fellowship support to develop a special training system which would enable a bilingual person to teach someone else a foreign language. The system utilizes Dr. Harrison's "structured tutoring model" techniques which have proven highly successful in overcoming illiteracy among disadvantage peoples. Dr. Harrison believes his proposed system will enable a bilingual person to give another person a good working knowledge of a foreign language in about 50 hours. Based on the results of his literacy program, the teaching of a foreign language under the new system should be superior to what can be accomplished in a typical classroom setting, the professor said. PHNOM PENH (UPI) Cambodian rebels overran a government outpost less than two miles from Phnom Penh's vital airport Thursday and fired a heavy rocket barrage that damaged an American transport plane and forced suspension of the U.S. food airlift. Government forces retreated both south and east from the capital's porous defense perimeter. To the east, two battalions of government forces fled their posts on the east bank of the Mekong river and swam across to the capital. Government forces now control only a three-mile stretch of the east bank. South of the besieged capital, about 300 government defenders abandoned two positions only 5'i miles from the city and two miles from the suburb of Takhmau. Rebel forces heavily shelled the retreating troops. LARGE GRAVEL BAR In Canyon outfall near Highway 91 has been formed when flood waters out of the canyon * Outflow (Continued from Page 1) mountains, city and county officials feared a sudden runoff which could inundate a considerable amount of property along the channel. Mr. Green reported that the runoff is fairly swift until it reaches Highway 91, then it begins to level off and drop its load. As a result, the channel has filled up with gravel bars which have raised its level to the point where it could not carry a heavy runoff.

The Pink Ladies also supervise the hair-care program in which patients may have their hair cared for by professional stylists who volunteer for this project. In addition, the Candy Stripe organization offers teen-age girls opportunity for service. They have charge of the gift cartf. which is taken to the rooms to offer a variety of small items for patients. The Candy Stripers assist at the reception desk, in the snack bar, and help children patients to feel at home. They also present a movie to children facing an operation to help take away the uneasiness concerning that operation. Mrs. Boyle emphasized the Women's Volunteer Auxiliary is open to any area woman who wishes to assist at the hospital.

Such gravel bars have partially filled the channel, making a cleanout project necessary. Rockets and recoilless rifle fire fell on Phnom Penh streets. Nearly 40 artillery shells and rockets hit the capital's Po- chentong airport. One of them killed three Cambodian cargo handlers and wounded seven others. An American C130 Transport carrying a load of ammunition was damaged, though there were apparently no injuries to the civilian crew. The airport shelling forced a four-hour suspension of the U.S. food airlift from Saigon when cargo handlers fled the airport after their co-workers were killed or injured. The barrage on the airport came only hours after 200 rebels crept through a gap in the government's shrinking defense perimeter northwest of the city and seized an outpost at Samrong Teav, only about 1.8 miles north of the airport. Field reports said the defenders were apparently asleep and fled after the rebels staged their surprise attack. Budget Cut Vote Rebuff To Liberals WASHINGTON (UPI) - In a rebuff to liberals, the Senate budget committee has voted to recommend a cut of only $2.1 billion in President Ford's proposed $94 billion defense budget. The 11-4 vote appeared to indicate a shift in mood in the Senate about defense spending in light of U.S. foreign policy setbacks in Vietnam, the Mideast, Cyprus and Portugal. On Tuesday, the House Budget Committee called for a $4.3 billion reduction in Ford's Pentagon proposal. The Senate committee, during a 13-hour session that stretched late into Wednesday night, voted tentatively to recommend a $366.1 billion budget for the fiscal year which starts July 1 with a deficit of $71.6 billion, far larger that the $60 billion deficit which Ford says is the most he will tolerate. The House committee came up with similar proposals —a $368.2 billion amount of •spending and a $73.2 billion deficit. Democratic leaders of both committees contended that Ford's proposals, because of a recession-induced loss of revenue and increase in expenditures for such things as unemployment compensation and welfare, would result inevitably in a deficit of at least $67 billion. They said their proposals would provide economic stimulation which could speed up recovery from the recession. SUNSET HAS. RUGBY SHIRTS! Authentic Rugby shirts form Pearson & Zobac, Ltd.
