The monks assailed her coalition with the Trotskyite Sama Samaj party, declaring it anti- Buddhist and antidemocratic. The monks found another target in Trotskyilc Finance Minister J)r. N. M. Pcrera's budget proposal to ease restrictions on tapping coconut trees for toddy, fermented alcoholic juice. They charged this was a deliberate Marxist plan to destroy Buddhism, which forbids alcoholic drinks. Mrs. Bindaranilke scrapped the toddy plan. But she did not yield in the press nationalization ssuc. Defections from her J-'reedom party recently reflects back- >enchers' fears of antagonizing he monks. Many rural mem- >ers of Parliament were put nto power with thn monks' ielp. In her four years of power, he politically inexperienced housewife became headstrong, resolute and intolerant of criticism — in contrast, to her politically experienced husband. Backbenchers bowed to her will because of the lack of any other nationally acceptable figure in their parly. The daughter of a liberal- minded rural chief, Mrs. Ban- daranaike pushed through radical socialist measures: • The takeover of Shell, Esso arid Callex oil installations, in defiance of a U.S. aid clamp- lown and vigorous British protests. • Nationalization of British Indian, Canadian and Austra-j ian insurance firms, I • Nationalization of the Ceylonese bank and a threat lo take control of British, Indian and akislani banks. She also took over schools run >y religions organizations, ignoring a civil disobedience movement !>y nearly 800,000 Roman Catholics. ] In foreign policy Mrs. Ban- laranaikc followed a course of lonalignment, worked closely] vitli President Clarnal Abdel' Nasser of Egypt, Iried to me- liate Indian-Chinese border dis-1 niles and described herself as! mti imperialist.

Mrs. Bandaranaike paid horn- to a portrait of her late husband night and morning. Also — in ;ipite of her ffiiarrel with monks over the press takeover — she was deeply religious, spending half an hour each morning and evening sitting crossleggcd before an image of Buddha in her home. Taking the Trotskyltes into her government, she explained she wanted to shore up her parliamentary majority and at the same time break up an ominously promising unity movement of three previously quarreling Marxist parties. She achieved the second aim. She also secured industrial peace after a fierce outbreak of strikes that for three months crippled the export trade Ceylon depends on for its clothing, rice and sugar on sales of lea, rub her and coconut. Mrs. Bandaranaike was de- fealed by her unswerving determination to go ahead with the nationalization of the press group. She felt she had been venomously and unfairly attacked in newspapers during the 1960 elections. In addition, her government was chronically assailed mounting inflation and foreign assets, which forced drastic import curbs affecting the production of consumer goods. Development did not match increases in the labor force, and critics said this fail- 16 O«c. 12, H| 1H4 GI»b«-G«*«H*, Ma ton CHy, la. ure- was a fundamental reason for what they called her drift (toward dictatorship.
