Battle for Srang
Cambodian soldiers carry the body of a seriously wounded comrade to the rear in the wake of
bitter fighting for the town of Srang, 30 miles pouthwest of Phnom Penh. Cambodian troops re-
occupied the embattled town yesterday after a force of 1,000 North Vietnamese and National Lib-
eration Front soldiers withdrew and marched toward the provincial capital of ~Kompong Speu.
Srang had been held for five days, but the forces moved out unaccountably just before Cam-
bodian troops advanced.

commissioner chares FCC
With silencing dissent on war

ber of the Federal Communica-

that the FCC appears to have
moved toward silencing dissent
on the Vietnam war.
In a statement issued Mon-
day, Commissioner N i c h o 1 a s

FCC orde of Aug. 18, which
granted some television time for

speeches by President Nixon,
but denied there is any abso-

a television telecast.

Johnson took issue with the
commission's holding that the
s t r i n g of five presidential
speeches constituted a unique
situation and said he concurred
only because the decision "was
a distinct improvement over
the situation as it has existed."

Johnson said he found final

justification for his position in
the context of other FCC de-
cisions on the war issue.
"Although we have at least

PENSACOLA, Fla. W - Mil-
lions of dead menhaden covered
Escambia Bay yesterday as fisher-
men, their profits dwindling after
52 fish kills in 18 months, de-
manded an end to industrial pol-
lution in the bay.
Authorities said no effort would
be made to remove the dead fish
from a square-mile section of the
brackish water bay, once a na-
tionally famous fishing ground
and nursery for white shrimp.
State and county officials blam-
ed the kill on industrial discharge
from three companies already un-
der citation for pollution-Amer-
ican Cyanamid, Escambia Chem-
ical Co. and the Monsanto Corp.
Nitrogen, carbons and phos-
phates from the discharge serve
as nutrients for algae in the bay.
Rapid growth of the algae, con-
servationists say, depletes the
oxygen supply in the water.
T h e menhaden, a silver-sided
fish, grows to be from 12 to 18
inches long and weighs from
three-quarters of a pound to a
Traveling in schools they are
part of the diet of other f i s h
while feeding themselves chiefly
on tiny plants and animals in the
sea called plankton. Menhaden is


used chiefly for ifertilizing crops.
In Pensacola; wholesale fisher-
men with their own fleets have
complained of heavy financial
losses. Operating expenses h a v e
increased, they say, as they have
had to seek out new .fishing
grounds for trout, snapper, mullet,
panfish, and other seafood.
"Business is definitely off," re-
tailer I. W. Hightower said. "You'd
just be surprised the amount of
people who ask where my fish were
caught. I just have to tell them
they didn't come from the bay."
Retailers report mounting con-
tern from customers' over the
quality of fish they offer for sale.
Referring to industrial pollu-
tion of the bay, wholesaler Buck
Richbourg, manager of the large
American Seafood Co., said "All.
of us down here have lost thous-
ands of dollars, mainly because
this stuff has killed off all of our
shrimp in the bay."
Another wholesaler, Allen Wil-
liams said that two years ago "we
could have just about m a d e a
good living; on just taking shrimp
out of the bay. Last year, there
were a few around but this year,
"Production is way off. That has
to hurt, but there's not much you
can do about it," Williams said.
In Tallahassee, t h e state de-
partment of Air and Water Pollu-
tion Control said it had dispatch-
ed engineers to Pensacola to in-
vestigate the latest fish kill.
