To Be Built
PARIS (M)-Europe took another
step into the atomic age yesterday
with a decision by 12 nations to
build a radically new type nuclear
power plant.
It will be a 38 million dollar ex-
periment, with Britain paying the
biggest share of the cost.
Scientists hope the plant will
produce electrical power at a cost
in line with hydroelectric and
steam stations.
Electrical energy produced at
nuclear power plants in operation
in Britain and the United States
costs more than electricity pro,-
duced by conventional means.
The experimental plant, to be
built at Winfrith Heath, England,
will have a gas-cooled reactor de-
signed to operate at temperatures
above 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

High Court Puts Contracts
Under Federal Regulation,
WASHINGTON W - The Supreme Court, dividing 5-4, yester-
day put variable annuity contracts under Federal regulataion.
The Federal Securities and Exchange Commission, rather than
state insurance authorities, now will have a primary role in super-
vising these contracts.
Contracts Cause Controversy
Variable annuity contracts have been a matter of considerable
.controversy in recent years. Under them, payments to annuitants
are based in large measures onl

hands off the anti-Communist re-
volt in Tibet and that fighting be-

His statement apparently de-
molished one of the last hopes of
sthe Tibetan rebels.

brothers of the Dala Lama, spIrit4

nation, toldreporters at Darjeel-

India and the free world will act." p
To Petition Nehru
Representatives of Tibetan re-
fugees met at Kalimpong, also on
the border, and decided to seek to
send a delegation to Prime Minis-
ter Nehru to ask him to use his
moral influence with Red China to
stop fighting.
Prime Minister Nehru said,
however, that "this is a difficult
and delicate situation and We
should avoid doing anything which
will worsen it. We have no inten-
tion of interfering in the internal
affairs of China, with whom we
have friendly relations."
India always has had close
trade, cultural and religious rela-
tions with Tibet, but since a Red
Chinese army seized Tibet in 1950
Prime Minister Nehru has gone
to lengths to avoid offending the
Peiping government.

Prime Minister Nehru, in his
statement yesterday, gave one of

the Red Chinese and a Tibetan

were planning to kidnap the Dala

carnation of Buddha,
In the shooting, the consulate
was hit by about 60 bullets, Indian
government sources said, but none
of the staff of about 30 was hurt.
Prime, Minister Nehru said a
crowd had visited the consulate
about two weeks ago as a result
of the rumors concerning the
safety of the 25-year-old Lama,
and another group of Tibetan
women had asked the consul, to
present demands to the Red Chi-
nese authorities.
