China Border Dispute
Poses India Crisis


.+ .


Associated Press News Analyst
NEW DELHI-India's angry ter-
ritorial dispute with Communist
China is forcing a difficult deci-
sion on Prime Minister Nehru.
He must decide whether to ne-
gotiate on Peiping's terms in the
hope of ending aggression along
India's mountainous northern bor-
der. The Chinese want to negoti-
ate without withdrawing from the
disputed territory they hold, as
India has insisted.
Nehru's agreement to talks
would imply renunciation of the
disputed territory in bleak, three-
mile high Ladakh which the Chi-
nese already control. This is an
area of 12,000 square miles. In-
dia controls another 39,000 square
miles of the disputed 'Himalayan
Cry 'Appeasement'
Angry cries of "appeasement"
are beginning to be heard as signs
increase that Nehru might negoti-
ate. Critics assert that whatever
influence India now has in Asia
will evaporate if Nehru accepts
the Chinese terms.
Nehru apparently is drawn to-
wards talks, however. He once
thought India and Red China, the
world's two most populous na-
tions, would stand together as the
friendly heart of Asia. Now, in his
weary old age, Nehru seems to
want to make another, perhaps
last desperate attempt to resolve
the quarrel with Peiping.
Rather than being cooperative,
the Chinese have been arrogant,
he has said.
Refuse To Withdraw
"No force in the world could
oblige us" to withdraw from the
disputed area, Chinese Foreign
Minister Chen Yi said last week.
India lacks the force to evict
the Chinese. The realization of
China's dominant military posi-
tion in Ladakh has come hard to
New Delhi.
When the Chinese began press-
ing into Ladakh in 1957, India had
no army troops in the area. By
last spring India had managed to
establish 3,500 to 5,000 troops in
this area behind the world's two
highest mountain ranges, the
Himalayas and the Karakorams.
This created a feeling of confi-
dence in New Delhi.
Erode Confidence
It had been eroded recently
when the government realized the
Chinese had the ability to bring a
superior force to bear any time
they chose. This is what happen-
ed last month in the Galwan Val-
ley of Ladakh when the Chinese
rushed up hundreds of troops to
menace an Indian outpost. The
outpost's supply line is still
threatened and the situation there
remains explosive.
Recognition of the Chinese
strength is believed to have been
an important factor in the July 26
note to China, which Nehru made

public Tuesday. It said India was
willing to hold discussions with the
Chinese as soon as the proper at-
mosphere has been created.
An' official spokesman was un-
able to clarify for correspondents
later whether the requirement of
a proper atmosphere meant Chi-
nese withdrawal. The note's fail-
ure to state clearly a demand for
withdrawal led some members of
Parliament and newspapermen to
conclude India had weakened its
The Chinese reply, which Nehru
called "rather disappointing," said
Peiping is ready to have talks as
soon as possible - without any
preconditions, meaning no with-
drawal from the disputed terri-
tory. Nehru said the Chinese note
is under consideration.
Signs of Settlement
There were signs in early 1960,
when Chinese Premier Chou En-
Lai visited New Delhi, that Nehru
was willing to trade away a few
thousand miles of Ladakh for
settlement of the dispute, includ-
ing the Chinese renunciation of
the rest of their claim of 51,000
square miles. He found himself un-
able to do it because of angry
public opinion. ,
Now public opinion is not so
loudly heard. The sharpest critics
in Nehru's governing Congress
Party have been silenced by giv-
ing them official posts. The non-
Communist opposition parties are
weaker. Only a few newspapers
have spoken against negotiations
without Chinese withdrawal.
One leading paper, the Hindu-
stan Times, said, "The hour of dis-
honor is near" unless public opin-
ion halts what the editor considers
the drift toward negotiations on
Chinese terms.

A Los Angeles attorney predicts
that computer systems eventually
will be able to predict United '
States Supreme Court decisions,'
as well as to "help reduce the
backlog of the courts and the
cost of litigation by reducing the
time required to perform thorough
legal research."
Reed C. Lawlor told the Ameri-
can Bar Association's special com-
mittee on "electronic data re-
trieval" that such work is still
in its infancy, although progress
is being made, the Associated Press
reported yesterday.
(These views, however, met with
some skepticism from Law School
faculty members.)
Predict Views
When computer methods are
further developed, Lawlor said,
lower courts will be able to pre-
dict how the Supreme Court will
view their decisions. These tech-
niques also will help lawyers ad-
vise clients whether to pursue
cases or settle them, he added.
He noted, however, that some
legal problems "may be too dif-
ficult to solve at all, let alone
with the aid of a computer.
"No attempt has been made yet
to use a computer in analyzing
trends in cases or when a court
will overrule its prior, decisions,"
Lawlor said.
Techniques Successful
Computer techniques have been
successful in their testing so far,
although its formulas have been
tried out in only the narrow field
of right-to-counsel cases. The elec-
tronic calculations, based on a
mathematical theory of stare de-
cisis, proved correct in predicting
35 out of 37 votes by individual
Supreme Court justices in 10 such
"Lawlor might have done just
as well in his predictions without
a computer." Any good lawyer,
by analyzing past judicial deci-
sions and the extent to which the
current cases parallel the pre-
vious ones, could have been just
as accurate or more accurate in
such predictions, Prof. Kadish as-
"A computer is no better than
what you feed into it." He and

School, although feeling the com-
puter methods are somewhat of
a "gimmick," thought there was
some potential for machines in a
mechanical function in lessening
the amount of work and time
needed to dig up old facts and
back cases.
Lawlor explained to the bar as-
sociation that the new methods
are based on the idea that each
individual justice is consistent in
the manner in which he decides
cases involving similar facts.
"The problem is to develop tech-
niques for recognizing the under-
lying consistency and to express
the rules in computer language."
Lawlor's groundwork for predic-
tions is to be as accurate as pos-
sible in analyzing past decisions.

The idea was initiated by former
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
presently chairman of the board
of trustees, at a White House con-
ference in 1956.
This is the first year that the
project will be run full scale. A
Kansas City-Mexico City trial run
was conducted last spring.
Voluntary Basis
On a voluntary basis, elementary
and secondary school- teachers ar-
range through the program to
have their classrooms put in touch
with corresponding classrooms in
other countries in South America,
Europe and Asia.
Both classrooms then participate
in related activities. Student let-
ters, scrapebooks, classrooms and
art work, displays and information
are traded between the two class-
rooms involved.
The role of the People-to-People
program is creating foreign con-
tacts, coordinating the schools and
classrooms involved, developing
special materials and aiding in the
transportation that is needed be-
tween countries. The United States
Navy has offered to carry the ma-
terials to be traded from country
to country.

' quacy-and he seems to like it-
Prof. Ross J. Wilhelm of tie busi-
ness administration school noted,
"From a psychological point of
view the new approach empha-
sizes the male as an adequate
personality. The emphasis is upon
a strong self-image of the male,"
he explained.
"This approach can best be ex-
pressed in the feeling and tempo
of such words as jazz, precision,
bucket seats, hard-hitting, compe-
tent, sophisticated, urbane and
reven witty," Prof. Wilhelm noted.
He said that this approach had
already created big sales gains
