Burma Turns Toward Authoritarian Army Rule

export of rice and rice products
was banned, and that import li-
censes to private trades were being
discontinued.
On Feb. 23 came the announce-
ment that all banks were being
nationalized that afternoon.
"Some of us thought Aung Gyi
had been going too far to the left,"
said one businessman. "Right now
he would be most welcomed."
Disgusted
"Don't think just the business-
men are disenchanted," said one
of Burma's most respected jour-
nalists. "Walk down the streets
and talk to whomever you want.
They'll all tell you the same thing:
"They're disgusted."
Civil servants no longer feel
trusted-soldiers are on guard ri
every department. Farmers must
get used to selling their grain at
lower prices-now that the gov-
ernment is their biggest customer.
Students have not forgotten the
Army's use of force to quell an.
antigovernment demonstration at
Rangoon University last 'summer.
"Even the socialists are un-
happy," said an editor noted for
his leftist views. "They realize
that a socialist state can't be
achieved unless the people are
unified behind the government,
and it is that unity which this
government lacks."

Ne Win signed two weeks ago
an act empowering the Council to
extend or suspend any law it
wants any time for any purpose.
"The army tells the judges what
to say, do and decide," one reliable
source said.
Some observers point out, how-
ever, that the revolutionary coun-
cil feels it has no choice in the
use of dictatorial powers.
"Corruption was so complete un-
der the parliamentary ggvernmen'
of U Nu," one editor said, "that
the army thinks it can be elimi-
nated only through these strong
methods."
Burma's journalists, though pri-
vately critical of the government's
policies, have avoided any direct
editorial assault. Five Journalists
were arrested several weeks ago.
One charge was failure to make a
required declaration that a paper
was being printed at a different
address because of a fire. Another
was: knowingly publishing false
news reports. Bail has been denied
all five men, and no formal trail
dates have been set.
"It might be coincidental," said
one journalist, "but in each case
the arrested newsmen had been
critical of the government in one
way or another."

Hubbell Finds Rare Insects
In South American Study

I,

Prof. Theodore H. Hubbell, di-
rector of the University's Museum
of Zoology, in South America un-
der, grant from the National
Science Foundation, has succeeded
in obtaining specimens of two little
known genera of the family Gryl-
lacrididae, or cricket-locusts, of
the Orthoptera.
The genera are the Abelona and
Brachybaenus and inhabit Peru,
Brazil, Eucador and Colombia.
Working presently in Peru, Mub-
bell is being assisted 'by Luis E.
Pena, research associate in the
Peabody Museum, Yale University.
Hubbell and Pena have also been
successful in obtaining 2500 speci-
ments of about 150 other species
of the order Orthoptera, which
I n c 1u d e s grasshoppers, crickets,
katydids and locusts. They have
obtained two specimens of the
genus Rossophyllum of which only
about a dozen are known.
The two entomologists began

their work in January in Tierra del
IFuego. There they studied certain
wingless, long-legged "crickets"
(Aryllacnididae) which are found
only in parts of the world sur-
rounding Antarctica- -southern
South America, southern Australia
and New Zealand and the Cape
Region of Africa.
Hubbell and Pena also worked
north around volcanic regions of
Chile and in the desert area north
of Santiago.
At l e a s t one-half of the
"cricket" which they discovered in
this region have never been known
heretofore, according to Hubbell.
"These new ones fall into about
five genera and a dozen species.
They must be described and
named," he noted.
After leaving Peru, Hubbell and
Pena plan to explore jungle re-
gions of both coastal and interior
Ecuador. Hubbell will return home
by May 20.
