Nehru Cites
New Threat
Of Fi Ihting
NEW DELHI (AP)-Indian Prime
Minister Jawaharlal Nehru warn-
ed his front-line troops yesterday
against being lulled into a trap
by the Chinese cease-fire and told
them to keep ,on the alert for- a
possible flare-up of fighting in
the Himalayas.
The Indian leader declared in
a special broadcast to the armed
forces that Peking's proclamation
of a pullback may be only a trick
-"we do not know how long it
will continue."
The Chinese betrayed India and
returned its good will with treach-
ery, the Prime Minister said.
'Will Not Submit'
"They have threatened to re-
sume hostilities if we do not ac-
cept their terfns, but .we are de-
termined not to submit to their
Earlier, Nehru set at rest anxie-
ty-evident recently among some
legislators-that he might be in
a compromising mood. He rejected
China's terms for a settlement of
the frontier conflict.
Nehru told parliament the Chi-
nese proposed line would give the
Communists "the benefit of their
recent invasion and place them in
an advantageous and dominating
position for further aggression in
the future."
'Clear' Answer
Nehru's defiant stand was taken
as the "clear and defenite" an-
swer that Peking demanded over
the weekend in what many re-
garded as an ultimatum, coupled
with a threat to go on the offen-
sive again.
A Peking broadcast claimed,
however, that Chinese troops, who
earlier pulled back along the east-
ern end of the frontier, continued
their withdrawal Sunday.
Peking's main demand called for
withdrawal of both armies from
the Chinese-defined line of Nov.
7, 1959 to create a demilitarized
'zone and disengage troops.

.. . sounds warning

The purpose of the Foreign
Policy Association is to build an
informed public opinion on the
major issues of American foreign
policy and on world affairs, FPA
President Samuel P. Hayes ex-
plained while on campus for a re-
cent conference.
Formerly a professor of eco-
nomics at the University, Hayes
noted that most of the associa-
tion's work is done indirectly
through other organizations.
Organizations request - informa-
tion or help in forming and carry-
ing on seminars on world affairs
and/or the government's major
decisions. The association provides
assistance at no cost to the organi-
zations, although they must pay
for the printed materials used in
their seminars.
No Connection
"The FPA is a non-partisan or-
ganization which has no connec-
tion with the American govern-
ment. We are supported by 700
corporations and many private in-
dividuals," Hayes said.
Formed in 1918 as the Associa-
tion for a League of Free Na-
tions, it changedits name and
function three years later to an
educational organization rather
than an association promoting
America's entrance in the League
of Nations.
"We have been very active for
a long time, but it is really in the
past decade that our growth has
been substantial. Our budget has
doubled since 1950." he contin-~
Big Job
Hayes noted that there is a
"big" job to be done in America,
because the great size of the coun-
try tends to lead to an attitude
of self-containment. Isolationism,
he declared, isn't as important as
it formerly was.
However, many people who
don't know about foreign policy
become alarmed when crises are
reached..It is these people who
want a "quick" answer and see
matters in absolute terms of
black and white. The association
wants to give the American pub-
fic an educational background so
that they will not feel there is one
"final" answer in the realm of
foreign policy and world affairs.
The 75-person staff of the FPA
tries to fill this function by putting
out certaih publications, running
conference, for people visiting
New York 'ity and primarily- by
working wt'-n national organiza-
tions to form adult discussion

... FPA president

forming people who are out of the
habit of formal education.
"Last year, 300,000 people in
1000 different communities par-
ticipated 'in this program. We,
would like to reach more people;
we have good contact with the
people running the national or-
ganizations although the general
public doesn't know us," he com-
Eight Topics
The FPA's executive board se-
lects the eight topics which will
be discussed, one per week, in the
program. The materials provided
bit the association present back-
ground information on all sides
of the topic and a list of questions
is provided to aid in guiding the
The groups, however, administer
their sessions themselves. Among

the eight topics chosen for 1962
were the Common Market, the
Sino-Soviet rift, India's demo-
cratic approach to economic de-
velopment and Spanish-American
"Since we select the topics a
year in advance, we sometimes
make mistakes. For example, we
might choose a topic whichistno
longer an important question
when it is discussed, or we might
overlook an issue which later be-
comes vital," Hayes said. Gener-
ally, however, the topics are still
relevant when the groups meet.
Briefing Sessionsf
The main office of the associa-
tion is located in New York City
across from the United Nations
building. Groups visiting the UN
can arrange for briefing sessions
with the FPA.
The association also holds a
Community Leadership Program,
which meets every Friday when
the UN is in session. "Prominent
members of communities sur-
rounding New York City meet'
every Friday for an entire day's
discussion of current topics," he
Hayes observed that people in
European countries tend to be
very concerned with foreign policy
because of their close proximity.
Compared to citizens in countries
of a similar educational level, the
American public needs to be more
informed than they now are.
