retiring Director of Operations, said to-day that there was no logic in Communist terrorists continuing to fight now that Malaya was independent. The Chinese Communist leader, Mao Tse-Tung, had congratulated the Malayan Government on achieving independence This made it difficult for Chin Peng, the Malayan Communist leader, to claim that the present independence was false The General thought it unlikely, however, that the 400 hard core terrorists in Malaya would respond to the Government's latest terms of surrender, though a certain number of waverers might come out if they could escape from the authority of their leaders.

Members of civilised ami democratic associations did not walk out of them if thev disagreed with other members, he said. I know of no occasion either under a Conservative or a Labour Go'ernment when we have been under pressure from the United Kingdom as a result of our membership of the Commonwealth." Referring to the London disarmament talks, he said it was a mistake to think that either the Western Powers or Russia wanted war. If no agreement had been reached it must be the fault of both sides. On Kashmir, he said there had been some suggestions that United Nations troops might be posted there. India would not tolerate any foreign or United Nations troops on her soil, and that included the territory of Kashmir occupied by Pakistan.

Thirty-five nations are sponsoring a resolution, tabled to-night for debate in the General Assembly to-morrow, which condemns Russia for suppressing last year's spontaneous national uprising in Hungary, and proposes that a United Nations special lepresentative be sent to Moscow and Budapest to seek compliance with Assembly resolutions. Prince Wan Waifhayakan, of Siam, the Assembly's president, is nominated for this job.
The resolution, condemning the Russian Government and the present Hungarian authorities for their actions during and since the revolt and for their continued defiance of United Nations resolutions, approves the findings of the United Nations investigating committee, in particular its conclusions that (al The U.S.S.R.. in violation ot'rhe United Nations Charter, has deprived Hungary of its libertv and political independence and the Hungarian peonle of the exercise of their fundamental human rights (b) The present Hungaiian lesime has been imposed on the Hungarian people by the armed. intervention of the USSR (cl The US.S.R has carried ou; mass deportations of Hungarian citizens to the S.S (d) The TJ.S.S has violated its obli-aa'-'ons under the Geneva Conventions of 1949. (e) The present authorities in Hungary have violated the human rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Treaty of Peace with Hungary." The resolution, which calls for further efforts to achieve the objectives of the United Nations," would place the Hungarian issue on the agenda of the Assembly's next which starts on September 17, and ask Prince Wan to report to it and make the recommendations as he may deem advisable." An American spokesman said support for the resolution had been pledged by many countries not included among the sponsors, and he was confident that the two-thllrds majority (54 votes) required for Assembly approval would be easily attained. Reuter and British United Press HUNGARY WHIPS UP INDIGNATION Prelude to debate By Victor Zorza Hundreds of meetings are being held in Hungary and thousands of signatures collected under petitions protesting against the United Nations report on Hungary, in preparation for the General Assembly's special session on Hungary.
One of the oddest things about this indignation campaign which follows the best Communist examples is that it is designed as a protest against a document which has not even been published in Hungary. When the United Nations report was first released the While the Hungarian Government immediately described it as a pack of lies before it had even had an opportunity to make the most cursory examination ol it. A propaganda campaign was immediately organised to discredit the report the contents of which became known to Hungarians from foreign broadcasts and Budapest newspapers appealed to readers for letters on the subject. Later it must have been realised that the "protests" must have something AMERICAN QUARREL IN CHINA Visit to alleged spy Wuhan (Central China), September 9 Dissension has broken out among members ot the party of 40 young Americans now touring China about the alleged distortion of a report of a visit to John Downey, an American serving a life sentence imposed in 1952 for alleged spying." Some of the delegates accused Jake Rosen, organiser of the group, who comes from New York, and Bob Williamson, who lives in London, of deliberately withholding information from the press for reasons of their own and deliberately editorialising the report Larry Moyer, of Brooklyn, one of the party of five which visited Downey and another American spy," Richard Fecteau, in a Peking prison on Saturday, said the report should have made it clear that during the interview Downey seemed nervous and excited, and that it was very difficult to get him to talk. His hands and feet were trembling badly.
Moyer said all the visiting Americans agreed that Downey looked like a man in his mid-thirties and were surprised when they heard he was only 27. Another point not in the report was that Downey had he did not want to be visited by his mother. Reuter. rTTTvT.TC! A 1 IKIO VlfiiJ.XJO EMERGENCY On Algerian border Tunis, September 9.

A fairs. Reuter New Delhi. Septemher 9. Mi- Nehru said to-day that the Hungarian question could not be solved by mere condemnation, and indicated that India would not join in any move to oust the representatives of the present Budapest Government from the United Nations.
Opening a debate in Parliament on foreign affairs, lie said India was concerned to produce an atmosphere which helped the peop.e of Hungary and did not merely increase tension What would be the effect of repudiating the present Hungarian representatives The Government of Hungary would not disappear. It would function with hostility and perhaps with greater rigidity. There seemed no point in taking steps on condemnation that could not be followed by other steps such as outright war. and nobody wanted war. In Eastern Europe all kinds of forces are at play, liberalising and democratising forces, and there is a great deal of progress in some countries." he said.
Left to themselves there might be more progress if they are not restricted and hindered and upbraided and condemned." He denied, however, Hungarian Government claims that India had opposed the discussion of the report on Hungary in the United Nations. What we had informally stated was that it might be better to discuss it at the next session of the Assembly rather than at the continuation of the old session," he said. Middle East dangers Mr Nehru said the situation in the Middle East, and especially in Syria, was grave. If the wrong step is if a small conflict begins there, the consequences may well be a bigger conflict and an even bigger conflict behind that" By creating alliances to prevent Soviet interference in the Middle East, the Western Powers had brought about the very thing they feared. The Soviet Union could not be ignored in any settlement there, just as China could not be ignored in any Far East settlement.
Commenting" on Soviet military aid to Syria, and the American supplies to Syria's neighbours, he said One wishes the aid were economic and nt arms." He expressed disappointment and frustration at the deadlock in the disarmament talks. Referring to whispers that Goa was being made into a military base he said If Goa is made mio any kind of a base for the larger purposes of any alliance that would be a move the most serious character and it would be an unfriendlv act to India. Every countrv that helns or supports that move will thereby be committing an unfriendly act against India and India will not tolerate it whatever the consequences."

The Government ol Cyprus to-day published a booklet accusing Colonel Grivas, the E.O.K.A.
terrorist leader, of ordering schoolchildren to take part in demonstrations and terrorism. The booklet of thirty pages entitled Corruption of Youth In Support of Terrorism in Cyprus," says captured documents showed that arms training for selected schoolboys began at an early date, even before the outbreak of violence in the island The booklet contains nearly twenty hitherto unpublished extracts from the Grivas' diarieb concerning instructions for the organisation of youth in terrorist activity. It says Athens radio broadcasts, many ot which were directed at the youth of Cyprus, were a potent factor in the process of subversion." The booklet said that a meeting took place in May, 1955, at the Greek consulate in Nicosia to consider the E.O K.A leader's complaint that some teachers were restraining students from taking part in demonstrations The result of the meeting was recorded in a diary entry dated May 19, 195o from now on the pupils will not be chased in the streets (bv teachers trying to get them back to their lessons) The meeting was attended by Papastavros, Archbishop Makarios' deputy in matters affecting the terrorist organisation The booklet shows that the very first arms shipment from Greece was received in Cyprus in January, 1953, and that the youth organisation.

Discounting allegations that Britain had pursued a dehellenisation policy in Cyprus, the booklet said some textbooks used in Cyprus were identical with those used in Greece The readers were couched in language calculated to arouse extreme nationalistic feeling. One passage read The Greek flag now waits to be hoisted over Cyprus and Northern Epirus which are still in slavery This, says the booklet. typifies the forebearance which the British authorities observed towards the agitation for Enosis so lotig as it did not disturb the peace of the island." The process of the boys' involvement in E.O.K.A was gradual First thev took the E.O K.A. oath, then took part in riots and demonstrations, then in leaflet distribution by night till the second stage was reached sabotage duties, grenade throwing, until thev finally qualified for anns training and graduated into killer groups. The response bv schools to Grivas' demand for "militant demonstrations" was immediate and at one stage there were 49 school strikes in six weeks To embarrass the no'ire and troops girl sludents were pushed to the fore.

Delegates to the assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geopliysics to-day opened a special symposium on the carbon dioxide cycle, which, it is thought, could lead to the flooding of coastal cities and ports by A.p. 2000. The threat arises from the amount of carbon dioxide being poured into the atmosphere through ever-increasing industrialisation, from factory chimneys and the exhaust pipes of vehicles.
Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere absorbs heat given oft by the earth and oceans. It is estimated that 20 per cent more carbon dioxide will be added to the atmosphere within the next hundred years. The result.ng rise in temperature may be enough to melt the polar ice caps even more (they are already melting at the fate of about two feet a year) and with an abnormal rise in temperature level of the oceans could rise about five feet by the end of the century.
