KM 75die in '. i v * Indian tidal wove, cyclone NEW DELHI, India (AP) _ Thousands are homeless and at least 750 persons are dead pn Ceylon and the nearby island of Rameswaram, ravaged by a cyclone and 15-foot tidal wave according to reports reaching here Saturday. The disaster area, off India's southeastern tip, is still virtual ly isolated and communication is patchy. Villages have been without food or water since Wednesday morning, Officials said about 25d persons were known dead on Ceylon and another 500 on Ram- eswaram, a 16-mile long island between Ceylon and the Indian mainland. Unofficial estimates in newspapers at Colombo, the capital of Ceylon, said the death toll would reach 2,000. Ceylon air force planes dropped food to 14 Ceylonese villages isolated by high water and washed out roads. Property damage is estimated at $150 million. Railway officials said 115 persons aboard a passenger train hit by the 15-foot tidal wave that swept across the eastern end of Rameswaram were believed drowned. One survivor said villages on the eastern end of Rameswar- am were strewn with bodies and that no food or water was available. In Ceylon, 12 miles across the chain of tiny islands, the situation was much the same in the northern and eastern areas, which took the full brunt of the storm. frontation in the assembly and that a formula would be found.

(AP) — Recent developments have led some thN. diplomats to conclude that the Soviet Union has decided to force a U.S.- Soviet showdown on the controversial issue of peace-keeping assessments. The Russians are still going through the motions of meeting with negotiators, but there is a widespread belief at U.N. headquarters that chances for a compromise settlement are becoming more and more remote. The current speculation is that the Soviet Union has become convinced that it can win in a U.N. General Assembly confrontation and would like to embarrass the United States by forcing a test of strength.

The Russians and six other Communist countries are in this position. They contend the assessments for the peace-keeping J operations in the Congo and the Middle East are illegal. The United States was prepared to settle the issue if the delinquent governments would make voluntary contributions into a fund to stabilize U.N. finances in sufficient amount to put them in good standing. It was spelled out, however, that no voting would take place in the assembly until pledges actually had been made. The Russians now are insisting that voting take place immediately .after the plan for the fund is approved and that there be no deadline for contributions. U.S. officials say this is like "buying a pig in a poke." Since the assembly opened its session Dec. 1, it has been operating under a no-vote truce. This permitted the assembly to proceed with its general debate, but it was unable to take any decisions unless they could be taken on a no-objection basis. Many countries are becoming impatient with this arrangement, and some year-end decisions now become urgent. One of these is the election of nonpermanent members of the Security Council to fill seats becoming vacant Jan. 1. Further talks are scheduled this weekend. If no agreement results, the showdown could come next week. Yule surprise makes'a dozen EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — A. doctor told Mrs. Richard Wat son an llth child would have to be her last.
